'High School DxD' Sees Rias More NSFW Than Ever

High School DxD Hero is setting up the final arc of the season as the Gremory Family prepares to take on the rating game against Sairaorg, but Rias and Issei are having an emotional struggle as the two begin drifting apart.

Rias has been feeling more distant with Issei lately, thanks to all of the women around him, so she makes a final push to see how he truly feels. By nearly taking his virginity and resulting in the most NSFW Rias has been yet.

Earlier in the series, Rias' mother asked Issei to think about what Rias actually means to him as a person. He's been nice to everyone around him despite their obvious crushes (which is a common problem for harem anime protagonists), and Rias has felt slighted as result. She meets him in the sauna (the NSFW image can be found here), where she basically makes her attack.

After putting his hands on her nude chest, she asks what he would do if he pushed her down. After making out with him (which you can see here), he thinks he's going to lose his virginity. Until he calls her "President" like usual. Angry that he won't use her name despite going that far, it caused a bigger rift between the two.

This certainly isn't helped on the day of the rating game as Ravel Phenex (who gets the eyecatch of the episode, which you can find the NSFW results here) has a conversation with her mother in which Issei essentially agrees to marry her. Rias gets even more upset, to which Issei can only respond by calling "President" out to her once more.

The rift between the two is going to be a major plot point for the rest of the season, and their relationship is going to be even more integral to the series going forward. Maybe if their relationship gets better, fans could expect even more NSFW Rias before the series ends.

If you are not familiar with High School DxD, then you should know the series is one rooted in supernatural adventures and gratuitous fan service. The story follows a boy named Issei Hyodo who is best known for his perverted ways. After being asked on a date, the boy is killed when the girl turns out to be a fallen angel. Issei is revived by a busty classmate of his named Rias who is a devil herself, and she contracts the boy to become her new pet as she reincarnated him into a devil during his resurrection.
