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.
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.
