This year's May issue of Fujimi Shobo's Dragon Magazine is revealing on Tuesday additional cast members for the second season of High School DxD, titled High School DxD New. Risa Taneda (From the New World's Saki, Oreshura's Kaoru, Say, "I Love You".'s Asami) will play Zenobia, Maaya Uchida (Yuruyuri's Mari, Vividred Operation's Rei) will play Irina Shidō, and Haruka Yamazaki (Hayate the Combat Butler's Ruka, Vividred Operation's Mizuha) will play Aika Kiriyū.
The new season was announced with the 13th light novel volume, which shipped last September. 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 scriptwriter Takao Yoshioka and character designer Junji Goto. The season premiered in Japan on last January, and Funimation licensed the anime for North America for streaming and home video.
