I'm thinking that we should avoid adding early-bird spoilers on the anime's fourth season until it premieres on television. Thoughts?

Sounds good!

Guys, could Yuto Kiba be considered a form of expy to Fate/Stay Night's Shirou Emiya? They have a common tragic event past, being saved by someone, and Sword Birth is quite similar to UBW in terms of actual effect, as well as both characters being Chick Magnets. Of course, the main difference would be Shirou originally going for justice while Yuto originally goes for vengeance (so Hero and Anti-hero).

That is kind of a weak similarity. I would not qualify it.

I would like to talk about the concept of an angel "falling". I think I can present a logical argument as to why an angel could have sex without falling. If we say that making life is holy, as it could be said then automatically sex is ok, so off the top we can say that sex is ok as long as say for example Irina gets pregnant then she wouldn't fall. If you say that since Issei doesn't love Irina then it's bad, well I just say, it would be putting "making life" ahead of your own feelings, therefore being selfless. So as long as Issei gets Irina pregnant and then manages to make sure the baby survives, then Irina wouldn't fall. What do you guys have to say about it?

Greetings, this is my first post as a member of TV Tropes so I hope that people would forgive me for any mistakes that I would make. Without further ado, I would like to add a few things to TV Tropes regarding Highschool Dx D (light novel) which is mostly "Wild Mass Guessing" for fun:

1-Chichigami-sama (the Breast God) is represented by none other than Paio II, the trope pantheon's goddess of boobies. It would be funny/awesome if they add that fact to her profile and have Issei promoted to becoming her high-priest.

2-During the conflict against enemy vampires, Gasper will bite Issei in the neck to such his blood and bring Ho Yay to a whole new "dangerous" level as a result. Kiba might actually feel envious of Gasper as a result.

3-If Gasper is suffering because of the cruelty of the enemy vampires, expect Issei to inspire him to fight on and remind him that he is the "Danball Vampire God" with insane yet awesome Danball Vampire action as a result.

4-The next time Issei obtains a power up from Rias' breasts, it will cause Ryuutimaru (Issei's familiar which is a living ship) to evolve. Why, it might have a nude Rias as the figurehead at the prow.

I was considering starting separate character pages for each of the groups of characters (Occult Club, Student Council, Devils, Angels/Fallen Angels, Mythologies, Dragons, and the Khaos Brigade's three factions) because the current characters page is too big and difficult to navigate through. I'm currently starting a prototype page on Notepad, so I should have it up in a few weeks' time.

Does this "Ddraig" spelling come from anywhere in particular (i.e. official source)? Because it is wrong. For one, the katakana indicates it is to be pronounced Draig, not Ddraig (in Welsh they are distinctly different, and for another - it shouldn't be mutated in the first place: "Dragon" is "Draig", "The Dragon" would be "Y Ddraig", "My Dragon" would be "Fy Ddraig". Since there is nothing before the name that would cause it to mutate, it should not be mutated. Besides, if it is being used as a name I don't think it would mutate anyway. Unfortunately the FUNimation/niconico streams are locked to the US/CA.

When specifically is the name mentioned in the anime (if it's even mentioned at all)? I can check the exact spot if I know where to look...

we're just following the Light Novels so until they release the official name in the anime which should be soon, we're just using it as is...

should be after the Rating Game

The name hasn't come up in the anime then? When you say the light novels, do you mean it was given at some point romanised, or just what some translator has decided on?

some translator decided on it.

when the anime comes to that point (which should be next episode or 2 give or take), then we'll get to find out if it's Draig or Ddraig.


Think I know the reason why he decided on Ddraig.

keep forgetting Ise's dragon inside him is a Welsh Dragon, so Ddraig would make a lot more sense.

(just tried to reply at Literature.High School DXD because the discussion page hadn't moved, but now it has and my reply got wiped...)

Ddraig would only make sense if his name was "Y Ddraig" ("The Dragon"). The lemma is Draig, of which Ddraig is a soft mutation. In Welsh "dd" and "d" are distinctly different letters (dd is a digraph so treated as a single letter); "d" is pronounced the same as in English while "dd" is pronounced like the "th" in "the".

Wikipedia indicates the pronunciation is "Doraig". While it is certainly possible for the Japanese author to have got it wrong, it is still the case that on its own the word would not be mutated.

I failed my Welsh GCSE 17 years ago, but even I know this much. Terry Pratchett Lampshaded this sort of thing in Soul Music with Imp 'pronouncing' everything with extra 'l's.

ok so I lied. It wasn't episode 11 when the dragon appeared.

maybe final episode aka ep 12.

Ha! It was Ddraig after all.

Even the nico douga/funimation subtitle says Ddraig.

EDIT again: gaaaaaaaaaaaaay... won't let me upload the image in here..
