As much as some anime fans may like, you just can’t keep High School DxD down. With a third season having landed last year and just released on home video from Funimation, it was revealed this weekend in Japan that a fourth season is in production for the property. No details were revealed about it or a timeline, though it’s expected the main cast and staff will return as they’ve done for the previous seasons.
The previous seasons were directed by Tatsuya Yanagisawa based on the series composition by Takao Yoshioka and character designs by Junji Goto.
The light novel series began in 2008 and has twenty-two volumes to its name so far. A manga adaptation kicked off in 2010 with the main run of it having nine volumes, but there are a few spinoffs as well. Yen Press has picked up the main manga as well as the first spinoff from 2012. A 3DS visual novel game was released at the end of 2013 in Japan as well.
Plot concept: Issei and his harem of hotties are back to take on their biggest, boldest, bounciest adventure yet as they fight to prevent Ragnarok (aka the end of the underworld)! With summer vacation just around the corner, Issei’s got one thing on his mind spending sunny days with bikini-clad babes. Unfortunately, the Chaos Brigade is planning something big, and with heavy-hitters like the Norse God Loki in their corner, the House of Gremory is going to have to survive Rias’ underworld boot camp if they hope to stand a chance. While they prepare, dark forces gather strength behind the scenes, Koneko’s family reunion turns into a real catfight, and Asia must survive an indecent proposal from a high-ranking demon. With plenty of balls-to-the-wall battles and bare-it-all beauties, fans of High School DxD should start making room on the shelf their perfect pair is about to become a menage a trois.
