Ichiei Ishibumi's original light novel series centers around 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 directed the first season at the anime studio TNK with script writer Takao Yoshioka and character designer Junji Goto. The season premiered in Japan on January 6, and Funimation licensed the anime for North America. The 13th light novel volume is shipping this month with an unaired anime episode.
Update: The tagline from the Blu-ray's promotional video reads, "Let's go!! Boobs!!"
