* DealWithTheDevil: The ORC's job between crisis situation is to fulfill literal ones, but in a subversion most of them appear to be generic odd jobs that don't need any kind of demonic ability to complete. For example, one of Koneko's regular contractors is a costume designer who uses her to model loli cosplay outfits.

Rias' father also takes some embarrassing footage of her in class, and shows it to Issei's parents during the same arc. And ''then'', judging from how his parents act... No wonder Issei is so perverted.
