The official website for the High School DxD anime announced on Saturday that the voice actress group StylipS will sing the ending theme song for High School DxD BorN, the third anime season based on on Ichiei Ishibumi's High School DxD light novel series. The CD single for "BLESS your name." will ship on April 15 with another song, "Hello, Hello, Hello," as well as matching karaoke tracks. The original lineup for StylipS sang the ending for the first High School DxD season.

Singer ChouCho (Heaven's Memo Pad, GLASSLIP) will perform the opening theme song. The new season will premiere on April 4.

The series will once again be directed by Tetsuya Yanagisawa with series composition by Takao Yoshioka at animation studio TNK. Junji Gotō is again designing the characters, and will also serve as chief animation director.

The original light novel series with Miyama-Zero's art 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 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.

The first season premiered in Japan in 2012, and Funimation licensed it for North America for streaming and home video. The second season aired last summer and reunited most of the main staff and cast. Funimation also licensed the second season for streaming and home video.
