Only the world of anime could introduce such an intriguing harem series involving angels and demons, but that is exactly what happened. Over the course of several seasons, the anime series High School DxD has done exactly that! The anime is based on a series of light novels written by Ichiei Ishibumi and illustrated by Miyama-Zero, which first appeared in 2008 and have since been translated into English. With the first season of the anime series premiering in 2012, the series became a hit.
High School DxD revolves around Issei Hyoudou, a second-year high school student who happens to be a bit of a pervert. In his dreams, Hyoduo hopes to become a harem king and rule over a large number of women. The unfortunate outcome is that the student is killed by his first date, who turns out to be a fallen angel after all. In the end, a devil named Rias Gremory, who also happens to be the prettiest student at Issei’s school, is responsible for resurrecting Issei from the dead. Having resurrected from the dead, Issei now finds himself in the position of an underling to Rias.
High School DxD’s four seasons of paranormal adventure/comedy hijinks, as well as the show’s memorable characters, have been a hit with the audience. It should come as no surprise that the next installment of the series is in high demand as well. Because of this, it’s a good thing that the fifth season of High School DxD has been confirmed, as reported by The Cine Talk. Listed below is everything we know so far about High School DXD’s fifth season.
High School DxD Season 5 Release Date
Unfortunately, no official release date for High School DxD Season 5 has been announced as of yet, which is unfortunate news for fans of the show. It was originally planned for the new season of the anime series to premiere in 2020, according to The Cine Talk. As has happened with many other anime releases, the release of COVID-19 threw a wrench in the works of those plans.
According to Otaku Kart, Ichieie Ishibumi, the author of the original High School DxD light novel series, has confirmed that season 5 of the series is still in the works. He also urged fans to continue to purchase and read more of the light novel series, noting that higher sales of the novel could help to jumpstart the production of the anime series in the future if it is successful. If High School DxD Season 5 premieres this year, it will most likely air during the fall anime season, possibly as early as October, according to the official website. The next season could begin airing sometime in 2022 if everything goes according to plan.

The cast for High School DxD season 5
Despite the fact that the official cast for High School DxD Season 5 has not yet been revealed, according to The Cinemaholic, it is expected that the cast from the previous season of High School DxD: Hero will return. Yuki Kaji’s Issei Hyoudou, Ayana Taketaksu’s Koneko Toujou, Yoko Hikasa’s Rias Gremory, Shizuka Ito’s Akeno Himejima, and Azumi Asakura’s Asia Argento are among the characters who have their voices recorded for this project.
Season 5 will almost certainly feature the return of the same animation studio team that worked on the previous season. According to ComicBook.com, Studio TNK was responsible for the first three seasons of High School DxD. Season 4 was, on the other hand, handled by the studio Passione, under the direction of Yoshifumi Sueda. Many fans were taken by surprise by the change in studios and artistic direction, and some were dissatisfied with the abrupt shift. The decision even prompted some fans to start a petition calling for the series to return to its original format from seasons 1 through 3… However, it’s likely that Passione and Sueda will continue to handle the animation for High School DxD Season 5 as well.
The plot of High School DxD season 5
For season 5 of High School DxD, there is no official plot synopsis available at this time. According to The Cinemaholic, the anime series, on the other hand, has generally followed the same plot path as the light novel series in the past. So season 4 followed the events of volumes 9 and 10 of the light novels, for example. As Issei and Sairong battled it out in the previous season, the action picked up the pace. Issei also used The Cardinal Crimson Promotion, which is a cool and enormous power-up for his Scale Mail that was featured in this episode. Although Issei and Rias finally shared their first kiss in season 4, the season also provided a bit of much-anticipated romance for fans. In a nutshell, season 4 contained a great deal while also appearing to successfully conclude itself.
Season 5 is expected to be centered on an adaptation of volumes 11 and 12 of the light novel series, which is currently in development. For Issei, this entails taking tests. Issei will have to deal with the Middle-Class Promotion Test, which is a requirement for promotion to the middle class. If Issei passes this test, he will be placed just above low-class in the Devil’s strength ranking system, which is based on the ranking system used to denote a Devil’s strength. But, in addition to the tests, Issei will have to deal with Koneko, who has discovered how close Issei has been with Rias and is not pleased about it.
When season 5 does finally premiere, it appears that Issei and her friends will have plenty to do to keep them occupied.
