Highschool DxD is a fresh and fun take of the ecchi anime genre. The anime series is adapted from Ichiei Ishibumi’s light novel of the same name. The series first premiered on 6th January 2012. And till now, three more seasons have released. Studio TNK was in charge of the first three seasons. Though the fourth season, titled ‘Highschool DxD Hero’, changed producers due to creative differences. Produced by Passione, season four ran from April 10 to July 3, 2018. Furthermore, numerous OVAs featuring side-stories were released as well.
Highschool DxD Season 5: Release date
Despite the popularity of the anime, the series is yet to be renewed. Though we assume it’d certainly receive a season five sometime next year. However, Covid-19 pandemic has affected the anime industry quite badly. And it might also have affected the production of Highschool DxD Season five. So, we don’t expect to see the anime back on the screens anytime soon. However, we’d have to wait for an official word on this matter to know more.
Highschool DxD Season 5: Possible cast
As mentioned, the series hasn’t been renewed yet. So we can’t confirm who will feature in the new season. But, we believe Rias Gremory ( played by Yoko Hikasa / Jamie Marchi) and Issei Hyoudou (Yuki Kaji / Josh Grelle) will be returning as the protagonists. Furthermore, joining them would be, Akeno Himejima (Shizuka Itou / Bryn Apprill); Asia Argento (Azumi Asakura / Leah Clark). Of course, the fifth season without Ddraig (Fumihiko Tachiki / Christopher Sabat) is impossible to imagine. Also, new faces might appear in season five as well. Though we have to wait for confirmation.
Highschool DxD Season 5: Expected plot
Currently, we have no idea about the plot of season five. Though we know that it would adapt the 11th and 12th volume of the light novel. Moreover, we presume that the ‘Hero Oppai Dragon’ story arc will be continued in the new season. Of course, the next season would definitely pick up from the events of the previous one. Season four saw Issei confessing his love to Rias. And in the fifth season, the newer dynamic to their relationship will be explored. Additionally, how this new development affects Issei’s relationship with other girls will also be focused on.
Highschool DxD Season 5: Storyline
The story is centred around Issei Hyoudou, a high-school student. By sheer bad luck, he gets embroiled in the ongoing struggle between angels and demons. But fortunately for him, he is revived by a girl called Rias. Then, it turns out that Rias is actually a devil. Rias also makes Issei her servant. Throughout the anime, Issei develops a deep relationship with Rias. Later, Issei unlocks the powers of his ‘sacred gear’ and fights multiple enemies.
Highschool DxD Season 5: Trailer
Right now, everything points towards that the trailer won’t be released anytime soon. Moreover, we don’t even know when a trailer will be revealed. Fans will just have to wait a while to know more on this regard.
