High School DxD (Japanese: ハイスクールD×D Hepburn: Haisukūru Dī Dī?, alternatively written as Highschool DxD)[note 1] is a Japanese light novel series written by Ichiei Ishibumi and illustrated by Miyama-Zero. The story centers on Issei Hyodo, a perverted high school student who is killed by his first date, revealed to be a fallen angel, but is later revived as a devil by Rias Gremory to serve her and her devil family.

High School DxD began serialization in Fujimi Shobo's Dragon Magazine in its September 2008 issue. The first volume was released on September 20, 2008, with a total of eighteen volumes available in Japan as of June 20, 2014 under their Fujimi Fantasia Bunko imprint. A manga adaptation by Hiroji Mishima began serialization in the July 2010 issue of Dragon Magazine, and later in the March 2011 issue of Monthly Dragon Age, with six volumes currently available as of April 9, 2014. An anime adaptation by TNK aired on AT-X and other networks from January 6, 2012 to March 23, 2012. The anime is licensed in North America by Funimation, in the United Kingdom by Manga Entertainment and in Australia by Madman Entertainment, however Madman is currently unable to release the series in New Zealand due to it being refused classification.[6] A second season, called High School DxD New (ハイスクールD×D NEW Haisukūru Dī Dī Nyū?), also aired from July 7, 2013, to September 22, 2013. A third anime television series is currently in development.[7]

Plot[edit]

Kuoh Academy (駒王学園 Kuō Gakuen?) is a former all-girls school that has recently turned co-ed, but it has a secret. Unknown to normal humans, angels, fallen angels and devils comprise part of the student population. One of these students, Issei Hyodo, is a lecherous second-year human student who lives a peaceful life. After an ordinary school day, Issei is suddenly asked out on a date by a girl named Yuma Amano. After their date, Yuma brings Issei to a local park and makes a startling request. She reveals herself as Raynare, a fallen angel, and she tries to kill him. Using his summoning card, Rias Gremory, a buxom third-year student at Kuoh Academy, revives him. Issei wakes up the next morning, thinking that the events that occurred were all just a dream. Immediately after being attacked by another fallen angel and waking up, he notices Rias naked in his room. Rias reveals to Issei her true identity as a devil and says that as a result of his death at the hands of Yuma, she has reincarnated him as a devil, becoming his new master in the process.

Story arcs[edit]

Ishibumi has grouped the light novels into story arcs. The first arc, titled The Red Dragon Emperor's Awakening (赤龍帝覚醒 Sekiryūtei Kakusei?), ran through the first two volumes. Birth of the Breast Dragon Emperor (乳龍帝誕生 Chichiryūtei Tanjō?) is the second story arc and follows volumes three through six. The Heroic Oppai Dragon (英雄(ヒーロー)おっぱいドラゴン Hīrō Oppai Doragon?) follows volumes seven through twelve.[LN 12 afterword] The fourth arc, The Legend of Oppai Dragon and his Lively Companions (おっぱいドラゴンと愉快な仲間たちの伝説 Oppai Doragon to Yukaina Nakamatachi no Densetsu?), starts at volume 14 and is the series' current arc.[LN 14 afterword]

The light novels also feature a series of side stories set in between the main storyline, and are often compiled into volumes. So far, three short story collections (Volume 8, Volume 13 and Volume 15) have been published.[LN 8][LN 13][LN 15]

Development[edit]

Ishibumi had previously worked on a horror genre series two years prior to the publishing of the first light novel for High School DxD. In the volume 1 afterword, he mentions that he changed his writing style, and wanted to develop one in the school-life, love-comedy, battle, and fantasy genre. His main character Issei was made into a lecherous guy at the request of his editor. For the first volume, he made Rias a second lead character and heroine, and Asia to be the second heroine. Some of his characters are loosely referenced from the Bible, non-fiction books, and mythology. He created a world where the war between the three main factions (angels, devils, and fallen angels) is over, and where many famous angels and devils have already ceased to exist. He also added characters and legendary beasts from a variety of places from Norse mythology to Japanese Yokai.[LN 1 afterword] The concept of Balance Breaker was to represent a super-powered version of the character's Boosted Gear, and he likens this to the super saiyan in Dragon Ball and the bankais in Bleach. [LN 2 afterword]

Ishibumi intended to make the shounen-style light novel series that teenagers would be embarrassed to buy, yet was concerned that it might get an age restriction. In each of his afterword sections in the light novels, he makes numerous references to oppai (breasts) and notes when he tries to make his characters more erotic.[LN 2 afterword]

Media[edit]

Light novels[edit]

High School DxD began as a light novel series written by Ichiei Ishibumi, with illustrations provided by Miyama-Zero. The first volume of High School DxD was released by Fujimi Shobo on September 20, 2008.[8] As of June 20, 2014, eighteen volumes have been released under their Fujimi Fantasia Bunko imprint, and is currently split into four separate story arcs.[9] A bonus story, called The First Errand: Ophis Edition (はじめてのおつかい・オーフィス編 Hajimete no Otsukai: Ōfisu Hen?), was released with the July 2012 issue of Dragon Magazine (released on May 19, 2012) as a bunkobon volume. The story takes place after Volume 12, and centers on Ophis' first shopping trip in the human world.[10]

Manga[edit]

A manga adaptation illustrated by Hiroji Mishima began serialization in the July 2010 issue of Dragon Magazine, and later in Monthly Dragon Age in its March 2011 issue. The first volume was published by Fujimi Shobo on June 9, 2011,[11] with a total of six volumes available in Japan as of April 9, 2014 under their Dragon Comics Age imprint.[12] A spinoff manga, called High School DxD: Asia and Koneko's Secret Contracts!? (ハイスクールD×D アーシア&小猫 ヒミツのけいやく!? Haisukūru Dī Dī: Āshia ando Koneko Himitsu no Keiyaku!??), illustrated by Hiroichi, was serialized in Monthly Dragon Age from the October 2011 issue (Released on September 9, 2011) to the April 2012 issue (Released on March 9, 2012). Serving as a side story, the manga takes place after chapter 10 of the main manga, and centers on Asia Argento's first duties as a Devil. It was later released as a tankōbon volume on March 9, 2012.[13] Yen Press has licensed the spin-off for an English release and will release the volume on December 16, 2014.[14] A second spin-off series, titled High School DxD: The Work of a Devil (ハイスクールD×D アクマのおしごと Haisukūru Dī Dī: Akuma no Oshigoto?), began in the April issue of Monthly Dragon Age. Illustrated by SODA, it adapts the short stories found in the light novels.[15]

On his first date, Issei Hyodo is killed by Yuma Amano, a girl who sprouts black wings and stabs him in the abdomen with a spear of light. He wakes up the next day intact, assuming the incident to be a dream. However, when Issei is stabbed in the abdomen again by another winged creature, Rias Gremory, the school idol, intervenes, saying that Issei is her own. The next morning, Issei discovers he and Rias are naked together in bed. Reassuring that the dreams were real, Rias introduces herself as a devil and his new master. He is recruited to the Occult Research Club, where he meets the club members who are devil servants for Rias: school mascot girl Koneko Toujou, school prince Yuto Kiba, and big sister beauty Akeno Himejima. His job is to hand out flyers and tries to establish contracts in order to advance as a devil and eventually have servants of his own as a Harem King. After dealing with an unusual contact, he befriends a newly transferred nun named Asia Argento, and later observes Rias's team take on a stray devil. He encounters a renegade priest Freed Sellzen but Asia tries to protect Issei as Rias's team retrieves him.

Games[edit]

Kadokawa Games announced in July 2013 that a videogame adaptation of High School DxD is in development for Nintendo 3DS.[39] Originally scheduled to be released in Japan on November 28, 2013,[40] it was delayed in order to "improve the product's quality",[41] and was instead released on December 19, 2013.[4] Described as an "erotic battle adventure", the game features a visual novel and turn-based battle system.

A PlayStation Vita game titled High School DxD New Fight was released on August 28, 2014 in Japan.[42]

Other media[edit]

An internet radio show, called High School DxD: The Occult Research Club Inside Kuoh Academy (ハイスクールD×D 駒王学園 裏オカルト研究部 Haisukūru Dī Dī KuŌ Gakuen Ura-Okaruto Kenkyū-bu?), aired on HiBiKi Radio Station on December 12, 2011.

A trading card game by Prism Connect featuring characters from the series was released on July 27, 2012 in a starter deck and booster pack.[43]

Reception[edit]

Highschool DxD was a commercial success, by selling over 1 million light novel copies in Japan alone.[citation needed] According to Oricon, High School DxD was the sixth top-selling light novel series in Japan for 2012, selling a total of 654,224 units.[44] Also, in 2013 Highschool DxD sold over 346,173 copies according to Oricon.[45] The English version of the first manga volume reached No.2 in the New York Times best-seller list.[46]

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ "DxD" stands for "Dragon of Dragons" (ドラゴン・オブ・ドラゴン Doragon obu Doragon?)

DxD is initially thought to mean "Dragon of Dragons," referring to Great Red, however it is revealed in the 16th Light Novel that DxD is actually the name of the anti-terrorism organisation that was formed to counter "Khaos Brigade," with the DxD meaning the different factions which form the group.
