The official website for the High School DxD television anime series began streaming a "nyū" promotional video for the television anime adaptation of Ichiei Ishibumi's High School DxD light novel series on Wednesday. ("Nyū" is a wordplay on the English word "new" and one of Japanese words for " breasts.") The video introduces Rias Gremory and the other "mistresses" of the story's high school Occult Research Club.
The website is also streaming the announcement of the "StylipS Star Seiyū e no Michi" (StylipS: The Road to Becoming Voice-Acting Stars) video series that will run alongside the anime. The voice actress unit StylipS is performing the ending theme song "STUDYxSTUDY" for the anime.
High School DxD's story follows Issei Hyōdō, a dim-witted, lecherous second-year high school student who is killed by a girl on his first date ever. Issei (Yuuki Kaji) is reincarnated as a devil, and from that day forward, he serves as an underling of Riasu (Yōko Hikasa), a high-level devil who is also the prettiest girl on Issei's campus.
Tetsuya Yanagisawa is directing at the anime studio TNK with script writer Takao Yoshioka and character designer Junji Goto. The six monthly Blu-ray Disc/DVD volumes for the High School DxD television anime series will ship between March 21 and August 22 of next year, and each volume will have an original video.
The anime will premiere in Japan on January 6.
