Still, we can expect it to release sometime in early 2021 or by the mid of 2021.
Since the anime is an adaptation of Japnese light novel series. And till now, only ten chapters of the novel are covered in the anime adaptation. This calls for the renewal of Highschool DxD.
What will Highschool DxD Season 5 be about?
The plot of Highschool DxD revolves mainly around Issei Hyodo, the main lead of the anime. As per the scenario of previous seasons, the Kuoh Academy, which was solely a girl school, was transformed recently into a co-ed school. Kuoh isn’t any ordinary school, but rather it is a high school where angels and demons take admission and study as students.
The lead protagonist Issei Hyodo is a second-year student. On his very first day of the school, he gets asked out for a date, to which he instantly agrees. Issei goes with Yuma Amano to the date. Extraordinary events unfold for Issei as Yuma reveals her identity of being a fallen angel. She also tells him that her real name is Raynare. And she asks him to die for her.
The next day Issei wakes up and thinks whatever happened was just a dream. But to his shock, he finds a naked girl sleeping beside him. The girl is a third-year student, Rias Gremory, a demon. Rias tells Issei that he lost his life on his first date. And she also further adds that it was she who gave him another life by reincarnating him. Since she gave him another life, she is now his new demon master.
In the upcoming new season of Highschool DxD, we can expect to see more new students joining the school. It will be interesting to find out who joins the angels’ clan or the demons clan. Also, new can expect more new demon introductions. The most exciting thing will be to witness Issei’s upcoming life with his new demon master and other demons that can be seen.
Who can all be seen in the cast?
The cast of season 5 Highschool DxD will be almost similar to the of its previous seasons. Though we can expect the introduction of some new demons or angels. The main characters include:
- Issei Hyoudou
- Rias Gremory
- Akeno Himejima
- Koneko Toujou.
Till the time we get any official announcements regarding other updates, I suggest going and binge-watching the previous four seasons of Highschool DXD, which are available on Netflix.
