The series is streaming on Netflix and has moderate ratings. Season 1,2 and 3 have twelve episodes in each where the 4th season has thirteen episodes.

        Are you the kind of person who loves supernatural elements like fallen angels, devils, etc? Then this series is absolutely for you. The series runs around the main character named Issei Hyodou who is a perverted student of high school from Kuoh Academy. He desires to become a Harem king but fortunately, he was killed and he is revealed to be a fallen angel but later in the story, he was revived as a devil by the character named Rias Gremony who orders him to serve her and her family (devils)



      The show starts with the character named Kunou, a fox girl requesting help from Issei to save her mother which is followed by Issei and his friends helping Kunou. The story intensifies the audience and they don’t realize that they care too much about Kunou’s situation and the series gets serious. The first half of this season carries the 9th book of the novel and the second half with the 10th book.

The first two seasons’ intensity and feel are aroused where the experience of familiar mood can be seen in the second half of the story. Like before Issei is still dark from inside that he doesn’t understand or feel anything which leads to Rias’s vulnerability bursting out and expressing her feeling.

Her disappointment after the incident lets down the hope of this series fans. This season 4 was much awaited by the fans as it was released after a long time, the style of animation done by Passione Studious is one of the major changes.



      Season 5 is expected to carry the 11th and 12th books of the light novel. The upcoming season might start with the Middle-class promotion test while the protagonist Issei, Akeno, and Kiba preparing to ace the test.

The struggle of Issei to make a mark can be seen which might also end up in success though! Issei’s dream to become a Harem King is also expected from the upcoming stories and his heroic gesture can be seen from the part of him finding Fox’s mother.


        The main reason for the High School DxD animated series to be one of the most favorites among the fans for 8 long years is because of the same entertaining characters. Hence the same characters from the previous season are expected to be introduced once again in season 5. The characters are

  • Koneko Toujou is Ayana Taketaksu
  • Issei Hyodou is Yuki Kaji
  • Akeno Himejima is Shizuka Ito
  • Rias Gremory as Yoko Hikasa
  • Asia Argento is Azumi Asakura

Hence the characters from the previous seasons remain untouched.


        The High School DxD animated series has been entertaining us since 2014 but it has been two years of the release of 4th season. The fifth-season releasing date was confirmed by the makers a long time back that the season would be launched by 2020 but due to the pandemic, it was further delayed.

But hey!!! From many sources, it is believed that the makers of the series have resumed production, and season 5 is expected to be released by the mid of 2021.
