I dunno man, pal sounds a little too friendly, and I do hear them say par (or paru, because Japanese)

I'm not too bothered by it either way, whatever floats your boat I guess

る (Hiragana) and ル (Katakana) are the symbols used in the spelling for paru as the symbols are spelled RU in the Latin Alphabet (which we use). However it isn't pronounced like it you might think, it's pronounced RLU. Because of this those characters are used when the word uses an R or L.

Those people are closer to the truth of DxD than the information you've provided here. It's a show about sex, plain and simple. Sex is the incentive, engine and goal of the series. It wouldn't get a single view without it, and if we held the remaining parts of the narrative to the same standard that we do Steins;Gate or Spice and Wolf or Kokoro Connect, the entire thing would quickly fall to shambles. Put DxD in a vacuum in which sex appeal doesn't exist, and it's barren.

There's nothing wrong with that—again, I like a handful of shows like this—but it is what it is. It's no different than not expecting a great story from a first-person shooter: It's not why you go to them, so you don't care if gripping narrative is absent.

The same can be said of a disturbingly high number of recent and ongoing anime, I'd argue.

Clearly we will have to agree to disagree. But I will ask this, have you ever read the light novel? Because while still very much present, the sex isn't as important as it is in the anime (at least not in my eyes).

You can delve into the supporting mythology and lore all you want, but the fact of the matter is that virtually none of it is given any stable role in the series. If it isn't the focus of the narrative, it may still support it; but if it isn't even part of the narrative, it can't be used to support it.

Meticulously dissecting the alleged underlying facts of a story doesn't make them important, nor does it deepen or lend credence to the narrative itself. Information such as this only matters if the narrative lends it importance through its own innate structure—importance which High School DxD has clearly placed elsewhere, namely its female cast.

I mean no offense by this, but all you've done is draw parallels between the vague and frankly bastardized characters of DxD and their would-be mythological source. A character, be they a god or demon or everyman, cannot be defined by their past incarnations, as they have no bearing on the current narrative. The information in this post does nothing for the merit of DxD's narrative, as it isn't contained within it. It's less context than it is pointing out alternatives.

High School of the Dead isn't any less terrible because of brilliant zombie media; the legacy of vampires doesn't make Strike the Blood any less predictable and childish; and Strike Witches isn't any less immature despite its ties to World War 2. All for the same reason: It's clear that the writers—and indeed the series itself—don't care about that information. (For the record: I quite like HotD and Strike Witches, though I fully believe they are terrible anime.)

TL;DR: Nice information, but DxD is provably shallow.

Regardless, kudos on the post. I recommend Gingitsune: Messenger of the Fox Gods and the -Monogatari series for future installments.

I'm not doing this for the narrative in any way. I'm simply doing it because I've talked to be both online and in real life that think the series is nothing more than fan services and everything else is something the author just made up for the hell of it. The whole purpose is to show that the series does in fact properly use all the mythologies and legends present within it as well as having properly used references to things not within the series itself.

I will follow it, though assigning depth to highschool dxd is giving it something it doesn't have or doesn't relate to plot and characterisation

What anime other than High school DxD did you get these images from?

#292 - TheCanadianPatriot (03/12/2014) [-]
It's all DxD and Fairy Tail. Though Unless you read the DxD Light Novel you won't know them all. Numbers one and eight are straight from the Light Novel.
