Okay first off i'll just say that the animation is nice as usual. Next to the Opening and Ending, the opening is average, while the ending is generic.
On to the plot, the starting of the episode was good, especially the fact they didn't remove the pillow fights. The dream is a nice touch in my opinion, at least it foreshadows the upcoming issues.
The are also clips of the new Hyoudou Residence and the Gremory Territory which i think looks great. They skipped explaining about the train and make Tannin appear first, but overall i find no problem in the change in order so long as they don't change the main plot. Well the reduced in fanservice leaves some taste but i guess it's all alright, DxD isn't just about fanservice after all.
Now on to a few images
Finally the rating:
- Animation: 10/10
- Plot: 7/10
- Fight: 4/10
- Fanservice: 6/10
- Overall: 6.75

P.s. Is it just me or does Diodora look bad in black hair.
