Oh, for sure. It's just that the OVA was quite the departure from the actual series. The OVA was Highschool DxD levels of lewdness. [/bq]
So...it was nothing but basic exposure shots on repeat? Because that's all DxD ever did. Context was irrelevant because 80% of it's fanservice was "clothes dissolve -> oh look a nipple" and the remaining 20% went no farther, it just didn't use fucking clothes dissolution as the setup. It reduced everything it approached into exactly that, too. It somehow made a tentacle scene seem basic. That's so reductive that it's impressive.
DxD is only going to look lewd if you're a 14 year old who's never watched porn or seen a tit before, and is probably the main reason ecchi has so many of the bullshit stereotypes that it does. Unfortunately, I'm 24. I'm way too old for it, and honestly, most people who hoist it up as the pinnacle of ecchi are too old for it as well. There's legit great stuff out there. To LOVE-Ru, KissXSis, High School of the Dead, Magipoka, Umishou, Yosuga no Sora, Zero no Tsukaima, Maburaho, fucking obscure ass old OVAs like Buttobi CPU! and Dream Hunter Rem. There's such a dearth of great ecchi content out there and *this* is what people try to prop up. I really hate that.
