Rumors Cleared but Highschool DxD Release Date not confirmed

Highschool DXD Season 5 was assumed to get released by the end of the year 2021. However, thanks to COVID, it got postponed and was scheduled to be aired in Early 2022. Many reports indicated that it will be coming in October 2022. But as we mentioned in our previous article also about High School DxD Season 5, our assumption was correct that the premiering of High School DxD will be happening in July 2022. Many were expecting it further later but now it is confirmed that it will release in the month of July this year.

How many episodes will this season contain?

The Season 5 of High School DxD will have a total of 12 episodes each with a running time of 22 minutes. All four seasons of this series were released smoothly and timely and that is why the fans got so invested in the series. But as COVID-19 swept the entire world, High School DxD Season 5 kept getting delayed and fans have been waiting eagerly since. But despite taking this much longer, we can still contemplate that Highschool DXD Season 5 will also be a brief series and will not be exaggerated or unnecessarily stretched more than needed.

The Expected Plotline of the Highschool DxD Season 5

The story of High School DXD Season 5 will begin with a Promotion Test. Issei, Akeno, and Kiba are three young pupils who prepare for the test. This story will revolve around Issei Hyoudou, a student of the Kuoh Academy. The school was initially an all-girls school but is now also admitting males and has expanded to a co-education system school. Everyone including angels, devils, and creatures is starting to attend the school, which was a well-kept secret among the living residents. Issei is one of the regular students with very chilled behavior.

Then one random day, Yuma Amano approaches Issei and asks him out. Issei agrees and they go on a date. After the date ends, she asks Issei to sacrifice himself for her. A fallen angel, Raynare is revealed to be her. Yuma attempts to kill Issei but he is saved by Rias Gremory, who is a third-year student at the school.

He saves him with her magical card. Feeling it was all a dream Issei has seen, he wakes up the next morning. But he is attacked by another fallen angel. Rias has to reveal herself to be a demon and she tells Issei that she was murdered by Yuma and also that Rias only was the one who resurrected him.

One of the most essential elements in this plot of the High School DxD Season 5 is ‘The Hero Oppai Dragon Arc’. Starting in season 4, this arc complemented volumes 9 and 10 of the original book, and these volumes were shown in season 4 of the series. Volumes 11 and 12 are most likely to be followed in season 5.

A Plotline twist might be there as well in Season 5

The primary protagonists of the series are the members of the Occult Research Club. It is made up of 10 devils, an angel, and a dragon. It rivals Rias Gremory’s Demons. The club is engaged in a number of diabolical tasks like forming human alliances and participating in rating games and other school squabbles. At the completion of the second season, Azazel, the fallen angel was assigned as a consultant for the research club.
