The anime will premiere on the AT-X channel on Tuesday, April 10 at 11:00 p.m., and then it will run on the Tokyo MX, Sun TV, KBS Kyoto, TV Aichi, and BS11 channels. It will also stream on the AbemaTV service from Tuesday, April 10 at 24:00 (effectively midnight the next day), followed by other streaming services. The new series will cover the story of the novel series' ninth and 10th volumes.

The series features a returning cast:

Yoshifumi Sueda (Rail Wars!, episode director for Gosick, MAOYU, So, I Can't Play H!) is directing the series at Passione (Haitai Nanafa, Hinako Note, Rail Wars!). Kenji Konuta (Blood Lad, Servamp, Library War) is handling the series composition, and Makoto Uno (The Qwaser of Stigmata, Rail Wars!, Love Hina) is the character designer.

Tapimiru is performing the ending theme song "Motenai Kuseni (';ω;´)" (Even Though I'm Not Popular).

Author Ichiei Ishibumi and illustrator Miyama-Zero's High School DxD light novel series previously inspired three television anime series. Tetsuya Yanagisawa had directed all three series at TNK.

The light novel series centers on 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 Rias, a high-level devil who is also the prettiest girl on Issei's campus.

Ishibumi and Miyama-Zero launched the series in 2008, and Kadokawa released the 25th volume on March 20.

The first anime adaptation premiered in Japan in 2012, and the second series, High School DxD New, premiered in July 2013. The third series, High School DxD BorN, premiered in April 2015. FUNimation Entertainment released all three series on home video in North America.
