I read the light novel and to be honest after the first story arc the plot goes a bit off the rails into the realm of true stupidity.

Spoiler

The hell are you smoking dude. Your sounding a bit like those LN elitist bundle of stick smucks. You do realize this series was boobcentric from the start so the hilarity was going to be there and by no means is it even stupid. 

uggh gotta wait another 3 months and week or so til the next volume comes out cuz the damn group dropped it a year plus two weeks ago for no good reason.

At this point, I'd reccomend buying the manga as many have in order to read it in English because its official, it supports the mangaka and updates are regular. I've ordered v.2 and 3 & 4 are in me basket =D

yeah its just sucks but the next volume is due to hit in 3 weeks which is nice but....next one after that won't be til april 19th but problem is amazon doesn't show volume 9 yet which is the dilemma that I'm not sure how far it goes. like does it stop at where season 2 ends at, does it go to where season 3 or is gonna actually keep going and follow the LN path which im hoping cuz more manga to go and hopefully more inspiration for 4th season of a ecchi series which I can't think of any other. No i can't really consider FT to be one cuz the lack of nips lol.

I don't get how anyone in your group didn't want to do it i mean if it were an obscured or older series thats been long forgotten it be one thing. But this is pretty popular now considering it has 3 season which i was surprise it got even a 2nd cuz not all ecchi series are lucky like that but to get a 3rd is rarity in its own. Also its doing good here in america and I've been getting each of volumes as they come out.. Think guys should rethink it and start it up again.

 

Update just bought vol 6 so yeah the official ones have past any current scan /sigh kind of wish a new group would pick up cuz now it makes me nervous cuz im not sure how far the manga goes.

No, we dropped it officially on June 1. I hated doing it, but on top of the fact no one wanted to translate it and that it had its fair share of redraws, the anime was well ahead of it, and the LN translation is also quite far ahead, plus my lack of time. I said on RZK, but if anyone wishes to continue it we have HQ raws for a few more chapters that we can give out.

If you looked up the group's projects list at all then you'd realize that the series was dropped a long time ago.

I wanna know why the hell is this can group so far behind in chapters i mean they have only release 5 chapters in the last two YEARS I know blah blah scan group lives blah blah but come on the offical stuff in america is on the 4th volume here and the 5th one is coming next week, and the 6th one coming in august so if they don't release anymore chapters the official ones will of official surpass this groups slower than democrats progress of anything in congress.Before you whine you can't really blame people who are a fan of this series and the scan group but hell i need a lil venting.

I think you're giving way too much credit to this manga, which merely aspires to be a mix of power-fantasy and T&A. 

Even though I can concede to point #3, it doesn't change the fact there's absolutely no reason for everyone not to be a "pawn", why not take the role which allows you to be everything? Why limit yourself? The entire system is just an unimaginative,  literal-application rip-off.
As for the the rest of the points are non-sequitur. #1 is a speculation and #2 is an inference.

But....None of that really matters. Those inferences are merely a chunk of many, none of what you wrote changes the bigger-picture, all of these criteria exist to "merit" the plot into its course -- which is fine by itself -- but that's issue I tend to have with these sort of series': the very plot which tries to merit itself on to the stage, is a rotten tomato. As I said, this manga has no idea if it wants to be DBZ or To Love Ru.
The manga plays more like Super Sentai than it plays its tits & ass. It plays like a children's cartoon more than it plays like something a young-adult / teenager would read, yet it still contains content which is "inappropriate for children" in addition to its attempt to feature "oh cruel world so macabre" content which furthers throws any form of focus way off course.

If the LN is like that as well, juvenile with over the top crap that screams DEM at every given opportunity, it merely means I have a better understanding of what makes LNs popular in Japan.
That being said, the only thing one can truly infer from this entire debacle is my argumentative habit, herp.
</gripe>

Because not everyone suits to be a pawn, those who have good amount of demonic force are more effective to be a bishop type. Not all characters are well rounded., The chess piece is quite useful so that the revived know what kind of powers he/she needs to focus on, whether it is agility, strenght, or magical power instead of forcing themself to max all stats. Besides if you just revive someone and give them the same power like everyone else, there are those who have more proficient in one stat are not able to maximize what he/she is good at.

The point of number two is not just an inference, it's what you call "world building", will you state some arguments why you called it that instead of just "herpaderp rotten tomato" or "herpaderp it's not so important"

A good story needs some speculation, that's why the point number one exists.

 

Yeah, because you are the guy who knows everything like what?? by just reading like 15 chaps??.

1. One of the speculations why God of Bible created Sacred Gears is to give the humans some additional power to combat beings like demons, fallen angels, and other mythological creatures. The exploitation of SG's is something that God did not foresee

2. It's three way war you know. Demon vs Fallen Angels vs Angels, so no, making Angels fall has nothing to do with strenghtening Hell forces (Is there even Hell forces in this series? lol). Besides, falling system is a surefire to deal with traitors and heretics angels.

3. LOL, no that's not how it works. what you stated is only a rule exists in Rating Game. In the real battlefield the pawns could promote anywhere and anytime as long as his/her king allows it.

 

You want some character progressions and bla bla bla?? Read the freakin LN first.

The following is an exaggerated angry rant for yer entertainment :
This manga was on my list of "It's apparently popular so let's check it out", and I have to say... There's nothing special or interesting about this story..
It's mediocre at best.

I have no idea how the Light-novel fare, but almost nothing in the plot really makes sense.

Spoiler


There are many other stupid crap, but they're bound within shounen-logic. Which is nothing horrible, but the moment said shounen-genre is at the center of the stage with ridiculously childish deus-ex-machina "Oooh I'm Boosting Up with my extremely marketable gauntlet it's out for 29.99$ buy now kids oohhh!!", the point of the entire story loses its focus. Is this an ecchi manga or a power-fantasy shounen manga? It's like this story has no idea if it wants to be DragonBall Z or To Love-Ru. I don't care for a story to have horribly egregious holes in it, but for the very least : decide on what you're selling! Tits or Saturday-morning-cartoon for children.
Really, is the whole  "oh but battles" crap nobody gives a fuck about, with infinite amount of bullshit deus-ex-machina as if it was copying DBZ, really necessary to instigate a harem? Relationships between characters? the little character and personality this story has is lost within the absurdity of the protagonist's battles.

Instead of having somewhat amusing interactions, we get nigh impossibly uncreative combat-system which takes a board-game way too fucking literally. I almost felt like I was reading excerpts from Yugioh.
I really don't see any merit for this manga to be on the top 10 here on Batoto....It's just your everyday shounen-ecchi stupid manga, which is okay on its own, but its popularity is almost alarming. It makes me wonder how different is the manga from the LN?

Edit: Hah, just as I sent that comment, Batoto's popular-series' got itself updated, with DxD nowhere to be seen. Touche', Batoto.

Yeah. Tho season 1 was quite a mess.
But starting from Vol. 6 of the LN (which may be covered the next season) the awesomeness starts to explode quite exponentially. 
And at it's currently translated volume (Vol. 17) you'll just laugh at how weak they were in the current anime. Haha

really cuz i thought season 1 of the anime was fucking awesome the only bad thing is that english dub didn't do the OVAs or the specials.

I have never read the LN mostly cuz i don't have the time or care to do so but both the manga and anime are pretty solid and people do say they both follow the LN pretty closely.

Honestly. I keep meaning to watch the anime. I just can't bring myself to do so. Probably because I've read the entirety of the LN that's been translated so far.

Haven't read the Manga version at all either.

How many volumes of the novel did the anime covered?

they are going to be starting at vol 5 I assume

And I can totally understand that. You are entitled to your taste. I'm an Art person too and I love chibi. Just please be mindful about your language and tone next time. One can appreciate all modes of the media differently. That's the point of having different modes.

But on topic, if you want a 'very' similar series, with daresay, 'more' ero content than this, and an accurate visual intepretation then

Spoiler

yeah i read that series tho i was a bit disappointed with the ending I know the LN is suppose to be good but i was a bit disappointed with anime a but it had good animation and dubbing but it didn't follow the manga that much kind of like rosario vampire which lets face it the 2nd season of the anime was fapping material essentially.
