High School DxD is beloved supernatural comedy novel series composed by Ichiei Ishibumi and illustrated by Miyama-Zero. Season five was anticipated by numerous fans, and finally, their wait seems to be over. The makers have claimed that the season was postponed due to a COVID-19 epidemic, which is the reason why many of our favorite shows were put on hold.
The current rating of the show on IMDB stands at 7.8, which does not really do justice to the hype the new season brings to the table. The plot is rather engaging since it takes a regular guy, turns him into the devil, and just like that, the story gets more engaging with each episode. So if you are missing this anime and cannot wait for season five, we have some interesting info about it, so let us dive in without further redo.
So before we get into the info about the upcoming season, let us recap the story of High School DxD so far. The story revolves around Issei Hyoudou, a high school student who is a bit of a pervert and dreams about becoming a harem king who would rule over a large number of women.
The plot starts thickening when he gets killed by his first date, who turns out to be a fallen angel. Later on, a devil named Rias Gremory, who happens to be the prettiest student at Issei’s school, resurrects him from the dead.
The show was a huge hit with the audience due to its seasons of paranormal, adventuristic, and comedic plot, as well as the memorable characters. The next installment of the series aims to be an even bigger hit, and this does not come as a surprise at all. Season 5 was confirmed, and in the sections below, we will reveal everything we know about it so far.
Although it is confirmed that the new season is in the works, unfortunately, we still do not have an official release date. Even though this might be a piece of disappointing news for all the fans out there, the important thing is that the authors are currently working on it and that we will know more about the release really soon.
Season five was originally planned to release in 2020, but as it happened with multiple other anime series, COVID-19 threw a wrench in the works of those plans, so we will have to wait a bit longer. The original author, Ichiei Ishibumi, confirmed that season 5 would launch soon and urged fans to continue to read more of the light novel series.
According to the official website of the anime, if High School DxD season 5 premiers this year, it will likely be during the fall anime season, potentially as early as October. If everything goes according to plan, you should expect the season to air sometime during 2022.
