High School DxD is one of the most acclaimed harem-romance anime available, and its huge popularity can be attributed to its exciting combination of supernatural powers, abundant harem, and light-hearted humor. This has contributed to the anime’s success, especially in light novel sales and the four successful seasons. Despite fans’ fervent anticipation, there has been no news regarding the renewal of High School DxD: Season 5.
The light novel has progressed significantly, leading to the possibility of adopting a fifth season, though the studio has yet to disclose its plans. For those searching for updates regarding a potential High School DxD: Season 5, including the anticipated release date, take a look below.
High School DxD Fans Anticipate Season 5 Release Date: When Will It Come Out?
At present, no release date has been disclosed for High School DxD Season 5. Moreover, its production has yet to be confirmed, thus, should it be announced soon, it will take at least one or two years before its arrival on streaming services.
Rumors of High School DxD: Season 5 being delayed, like the NieR: Automata anime, due to the COVID-19 pandemic circulated some time ago, yet no official announcement has been made by Crunchyroll since. For now, it remains uncertain when the show will resume.
High School DxD Season 5: A Sneak Peek into What’s in Store (Spoiler Alert!)
Season 5 of High School DxD will resume the narrative from the eleventh volume of “The Heroic Oppai Dragon” arc in the light novel series. Thus far, the 10 preceding volumes have been adapted.
In anticipation of the impending Middle-Class Promotion Test, Issei, Akeno, and Kiba begin their preparations. As is the norm, Issei finds himself amidst his usual harem. The plot thickens when Azazel arrives with Ouroboros Dragon and the Khaos Brigade leader, Ophis, to make an appearance. With this, chaos and complications ensue.
Is a Studio Producing the Fifth Season of High School DxD?
High School DxD: Season 5 could be brought to life by Studio Passione, as they were responsible for Season 4. The switch in the production company is noteworthy as the prior three seasons were produced by Studio TNK (Seven Mortal Sins).
The artwork of Passione was strikingly different from TNK, which prompted an outpouring of negative opinions that, to an extent, still exist today. Nonetheless, fans of High School DxD will be elated to see a fifth season no matter who animates it.
Where Can We Expect to Watch High School DxD: Season 5?
High School DxD: Season 5 is projected to debut on Crunchyroll, accompanied by its affiliate Funimation. As Crunchyroll holds exclusive rights to the anime, they are currently the only streaming platform with all five seasons. Conversely, other platforms such as Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Hulu, do not possess the anime in its entirety; they may only contain the first two seasons.
With recent rights acquisitions of anime such as Baki and Vinland Saga, it is conceivable that, considering the time gap since High School DxD was last seen, its latest season might appear on Netflix too.
