    A solid and well thought out crossover. Few DxD stories are even readable, so this one is a pleasant surprise. It's well written both mechanically and stylistically, and the characters are all fairly true to canon.

    A 4/5, with potential to raise in score as more of the story is written.

    Highschool DxD featuring Lulu as in Highschool DxD featuring Lelouche from Code Geass?

    Yeah. Lelouch is the only element of Code Geass. Other than him it's just DxD.

    Perhaps edit your post to reflect the fact that it is Lelouch from Code Geass instead of just 'lulu'?

    It's enjoyable, if nothing groundbreaking. Mostly the canon events occur in the background while Leouch does his own thing, except for a few places where he does get involved. The way Lelouch devised for Issei to beat Riser was at least different.

    Also, he doesn't jump at a chance to become a devil. He has a goal and he seems to be working towards it.

    Recent chapters seem imply major divergence from canon.

    There are, of course, a few downers. Three of the Satans have become interested in Lelouch though it's not entirely contrived and the reasons actually make some sense.

    Also, while I remember the major plot points, and will read updates as they come, its not a very memorable story.

    There are not many grammatical mistakes and the prose is not bad.

    I'd rate it a solid 3.5/5, rounded to 3/5 with hope for improvement.

    I'm giving this a 4 for the sole reason that I'm going through Code Geass withdrawal.
