Issei is reincarnated as a devil, and from that day forward, he serves as an underling of Rias Gremori, a high-level devil who is also the prettiest girl on Issei's campus.


Note: Please be aware that this is airing mostly uncensored, so if you're easily impressed by... uhm... male genitalia, you should avoid this.

So basically my friends made me watch episode 2 randomly at 3 in the morning.
I wanted to punch the main character in the balls. That was TERRIBLE. :c

Going to attempt to watch this soon. It sounds like one of those forgettable ecchi anime.

This show's first episode got a rating of boobs. So I doubt there's going to be any substance here.

Hmm... http://www.HaremKing.tv NOW THAT'S a website to advertise your anime...

It'd be truly an amazing moment in anime where the hero who u wanted to punch gets his true harem ending...

So many harem anime ended in shitz...

Tenchi [wait wha?]
Ranma [I'm not the only one who disliked Akane for the bride I'm sure]
Nadesico [well, there's worse...]
ToLoveRu [He's an idiot]

Can't we get one where the dude actually ya know... GETS SOMETHING?!

It's not that one can get sick of booby fanservice anime... [at least I don't] but the formula of Love Hina style violence vs. morons is been beaten to death... [poor horse lol] Gimme a hero who does it and gets something different and we have a good thing going... finally....

Let's hope his demon powers make him awesome in later eps... and he gets his harem slaves for hot sex0rs... ^_^ Also, that is bar-none the sexiest ending sequence to date for ED ep 2... Who's with me?

I'm with you OmniStrata. I actually discovered this anime thanks to the END, I have even have ideas for a video lol

The reason I'll watch this anime is because of the theme of angels and demons, but into a new generation anime and not from the old school animes. I just hope ecchi don't end ruining the argument because the serie has the potential due to the argument, but I just don't hope this one ends like HOTD.

Currently reading the manga just to be sure I'll have the material I need

eh, well from what I've seen so far boobs seem to be the driving force behind this series, they also seem to be the main character's only motivation in life.

Ok I was going to be very dissapointed after episode 5.

When I noticed the ending started an the story keep going I first said: It's over already?!

Because I think that there's some story left in the manga. Need to go read it now

I'll be honest about this show:

In the beginning I was kinda esceptic: This seems like another ecchi, but it has an argument, a potential argument.
Problem comes when the ecchi is too much. In this serie for example the episodes when Asia appears, were the interesting ones, because it had the feeling that everytime the episode ended, the viewer was like: I want to see next one.

But after Asia's passing to the Demons side, the serie is literally a disaster in terms of argument. The way the story is going doesn't seem interesting and instead boring, the fan service is not really helping (I have watched again and again that cycle), and boobs is not something that's gonna save it. To be honest, if I watch or not the next episode is not very important :S

But since the serie is not completed, I'm waiting to see if the story changes :O
