High School DxD Season 5: Your Questions Answered

The High School DxD season 5 release date has been kept under wraps since the fourth season of the show, High School DxD Hero, finished airing in 2018.

The show is an on-screen adaptation of the High School DxD book series, and it is penned by Ichiei Ishibumi and illustrated by Miyama-Zero.

It’s widely popular in Japan and further afield with the High School DxD novels flying off the shelves. 

The plot revolves around a perverted school student called Issei Hyodo, who dreams of being a harem king. A harem king is a man who acts with bravado and leads their team into battle. He is then drowned in the praise and affection of women because of it. Hyodo is killed on his first date by what is revealed to be a fallen angel. Rias Gremory then brings him back to life as a Devil to serve her. 

It’s a remarkable story of angels, devils, fallen angels, and everything else in between. High School DxD Season 5 will hopefully bring back some of the magic that made the earlier seasons so impressive, the show’s got everything you’d want from a supernatural series. The show has continued to grow in popularity and has gained a cult following since its 2012 debut.

Were the previous seasons of Highschool DxD good?

The previous seasons of High School DxD were a smash hit, along with the novels which sold over a million copies in Japan alone. After its 2012 release on TV, the books became the sixth bestselling book series in Japan that year, selling 654,244 copies

On IMDb High School DxD season 5 doesn’t have a rating yet but the previous seasons have been scored at 7.6, after nearly 6000 reviews.

Who are the voice actors in Highschool DxD?

With 53 episodes under his belt and reprising the main character, Issei Hyoudou, Yûki Kaji, is the most famous voice actor on the show. Yôko Hikasa, Azumi Asakura, and Shizuka Itô also star with around 50 appearances each. 

What will happen in High School DxD Season 5?

It owes its success to a good narrative and action and not just its seductive women. We have finished binging four seasons and have set our eyes on the fifth one. Hopefully, the fifth season would take on the arc of Hero Oppai Dragon from the manga.

With many fans eagerly awaiting the High School DxD Season 5 release date, everyone is beginning to wonder how the story will continue from the fourth installment. 

The last few seasons saw their fair share of tribulations with the anime show being switched to a new studio because of how unhappy fans were with the source material’s adaption.

Spoilers Ahead!

After years of beating around the bush, Rias, and Issei finally confess their love for each other. Issei beats Sairaorg in the final round of the rating game, and his new “Queen” armor upgrade turns red to Red Dragon Armor. This is obviously the same color as her hair and a final signifier of his love for her.

 Highschool DxD season 5 is likely to continue along these lines with the other girls in Rias’ house, undoubtedly becoming jealous and attempting to sabotage their relationship.

When will Season 5 Of Highschool DxD Be Released?

There is no official update or entertainment news as of yet on when the series will be released. However, die-hard fans will almost certainly have to wait until 2021 now with no renewal announcement due this year. 

To hopefully quell some of your disappointment, we have included some of issei’s best moments. 

How Many Episodes Will Be In Season 5?

High School DxD has been relatively consistent with the number of episodes per season. High School DxD seasons one, two, and three, all had 12 episodes. With the fourth season of Highschool DxD having 13 installments. So it would be reasonably certain to expect a similar number in the next season.

Who will produce the next season?

The older producers of the show were TNK. However, it was felt they were not handling various aspects of production well. Most importantly, many fans were not happy with how the novels were being portrayed on screen. 

So creative differences saw TNK part ways with the show, and in High School DxD Season 4, they were replaced by Passione, who was heavily praised for their efforts in the last season.

Will There Be A Season 5 Of High School DxD?

With another 15 volumes of books to cover the series could potentially go for another five seasons if it gets the right backing. So far, each installment has been based on two to three volumes of the book, with the last seasoning falling in line with the 10th volume. 

There is plenty of source material to go around, with season 5 Of High School DxD likely to focus on the book series’s 11th and 12th installments. 

Fans want it. The avid readers of the book want it. We want it. We’re just going to have to wait until it gets renewed for another season by Passione.
