How many times has the word “Oppai (breast)” appeared in Volume 1 and 2 of Shin DxD? I will give away a Rias Oppai mousepad to twenty random people who get it right. Nevermind, it’s a joke. There’re no such prizes.
Long time no see, Ishibumi here. I wrote a similar joke in the beginning of the afterword of the second volume of the unlabeled DxD. However, at that time, I didn’t think that Rias’s Oppai mousepads would really be sold… With this, the year 2018 has come to an end. It was a great year as the new season of the anime, [Highschool DxD HERO], was released, but on the other hand, my workload was also the largest compared to the past… It was one hell of a busy year.
Now for the thanks.
Miyama Zero-sama, my Editor T-sama, I really thank you guys for the effort you made this time. I hope we continue to work together next year as well.
Now let’s move on to the content.
I intended this volume to remind you of the Phoenix fight in the second volume of the unlabeled series, which is similar to what I did with Shin DxD volume one, that is being identical to the first volume of the unlabeled series.
The next volume, Shin DxD 3, will be the New Kyoto Arc, so it won’t be identical to the third volume of the unlabeled series. It’s the second Kyoto arc. The current second-year students will be going on a school trip, but Ise will also appear as well. Because it’s the Kyoto arc, this will be Kunou’s feature volume. Yasaka-san will appear as well. And as the Kyoto arc is related to the Hero Faction, I also plan to make the new Hero Faction appear.
The next volume will be released along with the third volume of [The Fallen Dog God -SLASHDØG-]. Its content will include the Oni that Akeno controlled, as well as the childhood of Akeno. For those of you who haven’t read it or started from Shin DxD, please check it out!
And with that, I ask for your support in the following year as well. Have a nice year!
