High School DxD Hero Review — C

The boobs dragon is back.

This was a weird season. I’m not sure what the point of a lot of it was. There was this Kyoto arc which just seemed pointless. And then a whole battle tournament against this really nice guy which meant there wasn’t much tension. I couldn’t entirely follow why they were even fighting in the first place to be honest. Although it was a pretty good gay ship. I’m starting to think the gay ships are better than the straight ones actually. Although I’m pretty sure this show was not designed for that…

It did have some really great moments. The first episode of this season was probably the best of the entire series. It consisted of Issei putting on a play about the boobs dragon and having hordes of little kids cheering for him, which continued throughout the season. That was great.

I wasn’t especially a fan of the new character designs, but can’t say I care too much.

Generally, this show has gone on too long and now has too many characters. It has to iterate through all of them to show they haven’t been forgotten rather than letting the characters focus on doing interesting things. There are a number of the characters that didn’t seem to do anything of significance all season.

  • Storytelling – C – Losing focus.
  • Voice – B – Still do like the setting.
  • Characters – C – Too many, little growth.
  • Attention Grab – C – Why are we focusing on the males.
  • Production – C – It was fine I guess.
  • Overall – C
