High School DxD Light Novels Have Anime in the Works

posted on by Egan Loo
Story of boy killed on 1st date, resurrected as underling of high-level female devil

The author Ichiei Ishibumi and the publisher Fujimi Shobo announced on Friday that Ishibumi's High School DxD light novel series has an anime project in the works.

The 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 is reincarnated as a devil, and from that day forward, he serves as an underling of Riasu, a high-level devil who is also the prettiest girl on Issei's campus.

Miyama-Zero has been illustrating the original light novel volumes since they launched in 2008, and the ninth volume will ship next week. Hiroji Mishima has been drawing the manga adaptation in Fujimi Shobo's Monthly Dragon Age magazine since February.
