"I Will Defeat My Ex-girlfriend!" is the fifth episode of the High School DxD anime. It premiered on February 3, 2012.


Raynare takes Asia's Sacred Gear and puts it on herself. As this occurs, Issei, Kiba and Koneko fight through the group of exiled priests with Issei reaching Asia's place. Issei retrieves Asia from the cross after Raynare released her to him, as he successfully carries her upstairs to the main part of the Church with Kiba and Koneko holding off the priests.

Having her Sacred Gear extracted, Asia's life starts to fade away while Issei begs for Asia to live, promising to be with her all the time as her friend. At her final moments Asia thanks Issei for being her first friend as Issei is greatly saddened by her death. Raynare then shows up revealing that she received an injury from Kiba before coming up, while showing off Asia's Sacred Gear, Twilight Healing's ability to Issei. Disgusted by Raynare's action and how she made fun of Asia's life, Issei challenges Raynare in a fight out of rage. Meanwhile, outside the church Rias and Akeno continues their fight against the Fallen Angel Trio till Rias disposes of them after being angered over having her servant insulted.

Inside the church, Issei attempts to attack Raynare but to no avail as the stronger Fallen Angel maintains the upper hand in their fight striking Issei in both of his knees. Issei remembering Rias' advice begs for the power to beat Raynare as his Sacred Gear activates for the first time increasing his powers beyond Raynare's allowing Issei to punch Raynare in the face, defeating the Fallen Angel. After the battle, Rias and the others appear congratulating Issei on his victory. As Koneko drags the defeated Fallen Angel back into the building, Rias notices the change in Issei's Sacred Gear, realizing it's true identity. Rias then explains to Raynare that Issei's Sacred Gear is not the "Twice Critical" as Raynare initially thought but the "Boosted Gear", one of the thirteen Longinus that has the spirit of the Red Dragon Emperor sealed within it. Realizing the danger she's in, Raynare promptly and shamelessly changes back to Yuuma in a desperate attempt to beg for her life as a distraught Issei responds by asking Rias kill her.

The next day, as Issei arrives at Occult Research Club, he questions Rias on the possibility of there being 7 more Pawns besides him until Rias reveals that she has used all her Pawn Pieces on him after reviving him. Rias then tells Issei to become the Ultimate Pawn, kissing him on forehead before stopping as Asia appears in the Occult Research Club, having transferred to the Kuoh Academy, as they celebrate to welcome the newest member of the club. Meanwhile, a group of mysterious people are shown to be looking at the scene through a red bird outside the window of the Occult Research Club.

Important NotesEdit


Rias Gremory: He's not a joke. No one laughs at my servants.

Akeno Himejima: Look what you did now! Maybe it wasn't a good idea to taunt her like that. Whoopsy on you!


Differences between Light Novel and AnimeEdit

  1. During the fight between Issei and Raynare after he punched her, Issei broke a wall in the light novel but while in the anime he sent Raynare though a glass window.
  2. After the fight between Issei and Raynare, Koneko brought her, but in the Light Novel Akeno made some water with magic to wake up Raynare while in the anime, this doesn't happen.
  3. Freed temporarily reappears after Raynare's defeat, with Raynare ordering Freed to save her but was abandoned by Freed who escaped alone.
