After a long wait of more than two years, the anime Highschool dxd is finally making its return with a fifth season. The announcement put initial fears that the show might have been canceled to rest. Although the official premiere date still isn’t available, its most likely going to be released by early 2021.
Highschool dxd is directed by Tetsuya Yanagisawa. It first came out on January 6th, 2012, and immediately won the hearts of a large fanbase. The unconventional plot of the story only makes it more interesting and unexpected from the viewer’s point of view. The show is also known for its light-hearted humor and moments of pure courage that can be a real tear-jerker at times!
Highschool dxd follows a high school student, Issei Hyodo who was murdered by his date who happened to be a fallen angel. However, he is revived by Rias Gremory whose true identity was a devil. Since he was reincarnated by Rias, he also became a devil and had to become her faithful servant.
After the disapproval from fans when season 3 strayed away from the manga, it looks like season 5 will be sticking to the story in the 11th and 12th volumes of the manga. Fans are also hoping to see more of the white dragon emperor and the big red.
Cast and characters
