High School DxD TV Anime Gets 2nd Season

posted on by Egan Loo
Revealed in Blu-ray bundled with Ichiei Ishibumi's 13th light novel volume

The Blu-ray Disc included with the 13th High School DxD light novel volume is revealing this month that production on a second High School DxD television anime season has been green-lit.

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 (Yūki 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 Gotō. 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.
