thanks a lot Striker10.......really gladd to have found such a helpful community....
i actually had asked how many seasons it would take to cover the original 25 volumes because i had read somewhere that there will only be 6 seasons to the manga.......so i got scared...thanks for the good news tho......hope there will be 6 or 7 more seasons to high school dxd.
also i had another question...tbh i havent read shin yet but.....if rias and akeno graduate in the previous 25 volumes will they still be there in the shin continuation as issei has his own pieces so do we get to see rias and akeno and the other gals from the previous volumes in shin as they appeared pretty often around issei.....so will get to see more of them as close to issei as in the first 25 volumes.........thanks in advance
Rias and Akeno are still around, their school has collage division so they still see each other, one time Issei walk over there to find Rias and Akeno barging about him, their shared fiance to other girls. Both Rias and Issei's teams take part in a tournament fighting multiple teams and might eventually face each other.
Also another harem series I forgot to list was Hundred and Hajimete no Gal, not all of them will get another season but they're worth watching and continue on with the Novel or manga. The ones that are getting another season are Date A Live and Strike the Blood.
I can list out which ones on the list will certainly have a harem ending.
You said you've seen all 4 season, but just to be clear did you also watch the OVAs and 3 minute specials? This site has the list all of them on each season page.
Among those, Communication Magic is the most commonly used while we did see rare occasions of Healing Magic and Stengtening Magic. Security Magic is used in Shin vol 4 though its description is a bit vague. The rest aren't used but more mentioned by other characters. I don't know what spirit and Fairy Magic relates to?
I already know about that site, I'm asking for any descriptions on Darkness Magic, Black Magic, Light Magic and White Magic mentioned in the novels for an accurate summary.
Based on what I know, "Darkness Magic" in this series works by controlling shadows and other dark elements. I don't think it's that poisonous to Angel but according to real science, the color dark absorbs heat and light energy, making it also a counter to their light abilities.
I don't think darkness is poisonus to Angels as it isn't stated & if it was, every Devil would try to master it.
White & Black magic seem to be seperate categories that don't belong to the elemental magic tree but rather serve as a branching category. It is possible for curses & forbidden techniques to be a part of black magic, similar to the ones Azi Dahaka used.
I think the simplest Definition in General for Light, Darkness, Black and White Magic would be:
Is a Elemental Class Magic to Conjure, Manipulate and Control the Element Darkness
Is a Elemental Class Magic to Conjure, Manipulate and Control the Element Light
Black MagicMagic that is directly constructed to cause suffering, control or death of others. Black Magic often needs negative feelings such as Hate to be succesfully being cast.This Magic, while inheritlly not Evil, is able to corrupt the Mind of the Practionier, affecting his ability to care about things as good and evil.
Counterpart of White Magic.
Magic is directly constructed for the blessing, protection, cure, and/or promotion of the general welfare of others. White Magic often includes channeling the power of love, friendship, or "positive energy" to succesfully being cast. It also has the Ability to purify and heal corruption.
Couterpart of Black Magic.
Purification is something that is definetly counted as white Magic. The Issue here is that senjutsu can also do something similar...
So just because an Ability fits with something a specific type of Magic can do it is not always this type of Magic (sorry could not formulate it better)
As for Nyx...as a Goddess it is hard to say if she uses Magic, Gods can do similar effects without using what humans count as Magic, or uses she her Godly Powers as a Primordial Goddess of Darkness...
But I understand your Issue. Why not take these acts and say "...this is what those Kind of Magic would do" If you are not entirely shure that the said DxD Character is using Magic.
good to see you back. A Question, did you create the "Magic" Article here in the Wiki ?
I found a Quote from Lavinia Reini that I think would fit as a kind of introduction-Quote on top of the Article:
"Magic had been achieved by great mystics from ancient times. Whether miracles brought forth by ‘Gods’, demonic power of ‘Devils, or else original theories on supernatural phenomenon, they were all things that could be reproduced through formulas. All phenomenon have fixed laws, which can be measured, calculated, and their manifestation derived through ‘magic’"
― Lavinia Reni (Highschool DxD)
Protection magic is like a general all stat defensive buff. Lavinia used it Slash/Dog to enhance the defense of the Slash Dog team.
With this strong determination, he resolved himself to take on Kushihashi Seiryuu. Natsume, Samejima, and Lavinia were also prepared. Only Vali wasn’t here……but it seemed the opponent wasn’t going to wait for him to make an appearance.
“……Light of protection.”
Unnoticed, Lavinia cast a spell by waving the wand that she held in her hand. The entirety of Tobio and the other’s bodies was covered in a pale green light. It seemed to be magic that raised defensive power.
While it does reduce damage, it doesn't block damage like defensive magic.
So Protection Magic is in a way reducing Damage like Touki, Defensive Magic creates Shields to deflect or Block attacks and Barriers are like massive Walls out of Magic that can block ways or Areas from being entried you could say
Ok but there is a difference between real Protection-Magic and Touki. I only used it as an example.
Protection-Magic can also be inpenetrable if the attack is not strong enough or the power of the defense extremely high. A very special Version of Protection-Magic is Falbium Asmodeus "Absolute Defense" because it can also use the attacking energy to make a counter attack.
Touki is basically usable as Defense and Offense and feeded by the User Chi/Lifeforce and not from Magic as Protection-Magic.
Touki can be considered a mix of Strengtehneing and protection magic if we are looking at general forms except it uses Ki/chi as a source. While the defesnive abilities likes of Absolute Defense are likely to withstand Touki attacks, most magicians can't.
Rossweisse: “By that, do you mean why I learned magic? Well. It was handy in order to get a job in the place called Valhalla, and since magic is our status back there, I thought it was necessary and learned it. Not only do I know the Norse-style, but lately I have expanded my area of expertise into black magic, white magic, and summoning magic. I’m confident in my magic skills.”
Saying that, Ravel takes out a memo pad and asks several questions to Le Fay. Le Fay answers them while putting on a nervous look.
“……Yes, so you use black, white, Norse, and even fairy magic…… The ones you have a pact with are…..Fenrir!? G-Gogmagog!? It can’t be, it’s impossible……!”
On Cao Cao's orders, the youth wearing a mage-style robe over his uniform, Georg, reached out with his hand. What seemed to an endless number of magic circles appeared around him! Magical script and numbers began to spin rapidly within the circles! He matched Rossweisse-san in terms of the number of magic circles summoned!
“...From a rough glance at those magic circles, I can see Norse Magic, Demonic Magic, Fallen Angel-style Magic, Black Magic, White Magic, Fairy Magic... Quite a diverse array of spells...”
We have Rossweisse, Le Fay and Georg.
Rossweisse uses a variation of rune magic because of her magic circle.
But I never imagined for Rossweisse-san’s grandmother to be the famous Gondur-san.”
“She’s famous, right?”
Le Fay nods her head when I asked.
“She’s famous for being a user of magic taught in the Norse region such as the rune-style, the fairy magic gandol-style, spiritual magic seiz-style.”
Ravel continues after her.
“Rossweisse-san is indeed using the rune-style along with a different kind of magic the “Valkyries” created. She did say that she is using magic while incorporating spells she simplified and thought about herself.”
While true that it would match the other pages, the term that Ishi uses to describe it is Devil Power or Demonic Power. Also it would make it easier if we are going to update every devil article with the Demonic Power hyperlink.
That may be. I didn´t wanted go to deep into it, only thought about the to Names.
Like I said in my other Entry on your Wall, Devil Magic, because it is driven by Imagination, can be used to do nearly everything that you can Imagine. But in the end is fueled by the Demonic Power of the individual Devil. When the attacks are infused with Demonic Energy (like the Phenex Hellfire) they are especially dangerous for Angels and Fallen Angels.
Which is why Sairaorg is seen as a Cripple since he has nearly none (but compensated with his strong Body and Touki).
I read your Sandbox Article about Demonic Magic and found a point were I, partly, disagree.
"Demonic Magic is weak to Holy Magic cast by Angels and other divine being, however, Devils with higher level of demonic power can develop resilience to holy objects and light weapons."
This is a bit out of contex. Devils are weak to Holy Weapons and Magic and can with higher level of demonic power develop a resilience to it.
In the Article about Demon-Swords you can read:
"Demon Swords are the exact opposite of the Holy Swords, in which they use demonic power and are extremely powerful against Angels and Fallen Angels."
This indicates that Demonic Energy is deadly to Holy beings as Angels and Fallen Angels.
So my verdict is that Holy-Energy and Demonic-Energy cancel each other out when they clash since they are opposites. So in the end the Combattant who is stronger wins (and can bring the deadly effects of their Magic for the other being to effect).
PS: Again a very nice Article and i like that you, as with Light Weapons, create such things. This is a constructive critic ;)
Some might say "Why is that never told in the Anime or Light Novel?". I would say it is. Most Devils seem to use their Demonic Magic to create Elemental Attacks like Fire or Lightning, but for me these attacks are not infused with pure Demonic Energy (as the Hellfire of the Phenex-Clan is).
As we saw with Rizevim Lucifer you can create Objects out of pure Demonic Energy (like the Spheres that he used when fighting Issey). I say if that Spheres would hit an Angel, because they are made out of pure Demonic Energy, they would definetly have an bad effect on them.
Angels infuse their Light Weapons always with Holy Energy (also the Light itself is by itself deadly to Devils). So this could be the case that most people tell Holy is deadly for Devils but forgot Demonic is it for Angels too.
Valper Galilei says itself that Holy and Demonic Opposite Energies are when he saw Kiba´s Holy-Demonic Sword (which was normaly impossible, and could only happen because God was dead)
Well it is a technique seen in at least 3 vols so it's not a a one off ability never to be sen again.
As for the BxB pages, I believe that they at least have to be seen more then once and have sufficient description to deserve their own page. Since Vali and Saji are Ise's rivals, they have a lot of info to work with.
Can you maybe check if you can help out with my Azazel Cup match summaries in my Sandbox 3, as we DevilSlayer and I succedded in publishing Vol 22 match. Now we just lack the summaries for the matches.
I do not know that is really required as it is already listed in JD page and I made some changes to make Breakdown more visible. But you can do it if you want to, as we saw it in 2 vol and now 3 in Shin 4. Still wish Sairaorg got a new form :(
