If you are comfortable with ecchi and are also looking for a great storyline, this is the show just for you. In this anime known as the High School DxD, our protagonist Hyudo Issei goes from a lustful second-year high school student attending Kuoh Academy to someone he hasn’t begun to imagine before.
The series is not only ecchi, but it will also tickle your funny bone. In a broad sense, the series doesn’t take itself very seriously. It is one of the best shows to watch and relax and is considered one of the best ecchi.
1.Release Date & Announcement
High School DxD Season 5 has not made an announcement and will not be making any for the forseeable future. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic the chances of High School DxD part 5 have gone from “maybe” to a definite no.
The last episode of the fourth season of Highschool DxD aired on July 3, 2018. It’s been a long wait for the fans since then. According to some sources, the series might be getting a fifth installment by early 2021.
The show is basically a kick-ass action-comedy that’s crazy sexy, with sexy lady devils, and a hero with a heart. With its fans waiting for the renewal, it has been almost two years since no official statement has been released.
We know that a fifth installment is inevitable due to the franchise’s immense popularity and abundance of material for a good season 5.
High School DxD was a commercial success by selling over 1 million light novel copies in Japan alone. As of March 20, 2018, the first 25 volumes had 4 million copies in print.
The English version of the first manga volume reached No.2 in the New York Times best-seller list. There is no further information on the money made by the franchise.
The animation quality is good; initially, it was a bit blocky and undefined, but by the fourth season, the animation quality has improved. Still, we can say that animation is not Highschool DxD’s Unique Selling Point. Score- (7/10)
III. Was season 4 any good?
The fourth season of Highschool DxD lived up to the expectations of its previous seasons. It was full of non-serious ecchi coated with its laughable humor. The character development and personalities have significantly improved, especially for Issei and Rias.
You can see many changes in the detailing of Rias’s nature every time she is around Issei. Here it becomes evident how she emotionally feels about Issei. All in all, the show was an improvement when compared with the third season but did not level up to the first and second seasons. Score (8/10)
IV. Ichiei Ishibumi’s Health
We don’t know much about the writer’s health at the moment.
3. Production Update
It was expected that the studio would officially announce the release date of Highschool DxD season 5.
Still, until now, there has been no official confirmation, and even if they were about to announce, it would have got delayed due to COVID-19, which has hit the Anime industry quite severely.
No new trailer or teaser for the fifth season of Highschool DxD has been released yet.
No new Key Visuals are released as of now.
The season 4 of Highschool DxD covered The Heroic Oppai Dragon story arc from the 8-10 volumes of the light novel. And the fifth installment will cover the volumes 11-12 and continue The Heroic Oppai Dragon story arc.
7. Recap(Spoilers Ahead)
Highschool DxD is famous for being guilty of the fanservice that it intentionally focuses on pleasing the audience. And in the fourth season, the franchise has lived up to the thought as well. Straight from the first episode, we see the characters return with Issei still being a perverted self-proclaimed “Harem King.”
Following a formulaic construction of the plot, the first half of the show adapts the 9th volume. We meet a fox girl named Kunou, and after a misunderstanding, she pleads for Issei and the others to save her mother. The premise of this arc is incredibly straightforward after Issei realizes the responsibility they must carry to get the job done.
It does a smart job at building up the inevitable battles as Rias’ Team goes against Sairaorg Bael’s peerage. For Issei himself, there are also some emotional stakes that he didn’t even realize himself, to which Ria confronts him.
The art style in the fourth season is quite different from the first three. The first three seasons were adapted by studio TNK that fans are familiar with. However, Passione takes the step this time to animate the project.
