High School DXD is a Japanese anime series. As mentioned above, the show is adapted from light novels of the same name. It is written by Ichiei Ishibumi and directed by Tetsuya Yanagisawa. In addition, the storyline of the show is written by Takao Yoshiyoka. It originally aired on Japanese anime television At-X. But, the show is licensed by different production houses in different countries.
High School DXD is the depiction of a high school boy named Issei. He is characterized to be perverted, unpopular kid desperately looking for a girlfriend. To his surprise, he is asked out by a girl named Yuuma Amano. At the end of their date, Yuuma reveals herself as Raynare, a fallen angel. She asks Issei to die for her sake and finally kills him. Subsequently, he sees visions of Rias, the President of Occult Research Club. He brushes it off thinking of her vision to be a dream. Later, Rias saves Issei from another fallen angel. Issei realizes that it’s not a dream and Rias revived her from dying. He also discovers that Rias is a devil and ends up being her servant. Consequently, he becomes a pawn in the conflict between devils and angels.
