Kuoh Academy is a former all-girls school that has recently turned co-ed, but it has a secret. Unknown to normal humans angels, fallen angels and devils comprise part of the student population. One of these students, Issei Hyodo, is a lecherous second-year human student who lives a peaceful life. After an ordinary school day, Issei is suddenly asked out on a date by a girl named Yuma Amano. After their date, Yuma brings Issei to a local park and makes a startling request. She reveals herself as Raynare, a fallen angel, and she tries to kill him. Using his summoning card, Rias Gremory, a buxom third-year student at Kuoh Academy, revives him. Issei wakes up the next morning, thinking that the events that occurred were all just a dream. Immediately after being attacked by another fallen angel and waking up, he notices Rias naked in his room. Rias reveals to Issei her true identity as a devil and says that as a result of his death at the hands of Yuma, she has reincarnated him as a devil, becoming his new master in the process.
Sounds pretty shit right? Let's get a few things out of the way here. This season should not be considered high art. It should not be considered among the likes of 5 Centimeters Per Second or Howl's Moving Castle. It is ecchi. It is harem. It is school. It is overly drawn female characters with excessive fanservice. The clearest way to say this is to simply point out the mid-episode commercial break cut sequence. It's softcore half-nude pinups of the female characters. If you can't get past that, you won't be able to enjoy the show.
I'm not gonna be one of those twats who claim to watch it for the plot, cause there is no f*cking plot, it's just a perverted kid, his good looking friend and a collections of girls who's breast sizes range from AA-ZZ. But do I care? No! Though it may not appear any more sophisticated than your run-of-the mill school harem ecchi, this whole series actually has a lot more to offer. I wouldn't go so far as to say that the creators lure you in with boobs and then teach you the Ultimate Truth, but it's something along those lines. You come for the boobs, you stay for the boobs then you cum for the boobs again.
Then the show just hits you in the face. It doesn't make any excuse for why the protagonist can only think about boobs. There is no attempt to hide it; in fact, it's often used as a critical plot device, the fate of the world figuratively resting on the erect penis of Hyoudou Issei. It doesn't make any excuse for why the female protagonists are all graciously endowed, some to the point of absurdity. There is no bullshit, just cut scenes in the thoughts of Hyoudou Issei, who (like all ecchi protagonists) has yet to get laid, despite (as you would expect) all of the female leads literally throwing themselves at him.
I could go on about music, characters, animation but I won't I've said all I need to say about the show. Who cares about that shit?
