But the truth is he has never been on an actual date with someone to date. He surprisingly is asked on a date by a lovely girl named Yuuma Amano after he joins the Kuoh Academy (high school). He agreed to that offer, and later on the date, he realized that his date is a Fallen angel. The fallen angel kills Issei.
He later on, the episode is brought back to life by a gorgeous girl named Rias Gremory, who is also a top tier devil. Issei is no more a human but has become a devil, and Rias is his master. He then discovers that the Kuoh Academy is full of Angels, Fallen Angels, and Devils, and he, as the part of the devil’s group, has to now fight against the fallen angels and the church.

Release Date: When Will Highschool Dxd Season 5 Release?
There hasn’t been any official announcement from the team, but people are very excited to know when they will be able to watch the 5th installment of Highschool DxD anime. And why not? It has been nearly two years since the last season was released. The show was expected to be released in 2020, but the COVID 19 pandemic and the worldwide lockdown has affected the anime industry brutally just like any other entertainment industry. The voice dubbing is being postponed, the production is being postponed, and the list goes on and on.
So, for obvious reasons, we will be unable to watch Highschool DxD season 5 by this year(seeing the voice dubbing is pending, among many other activities). But we could expect the new season to release by June 2021, but no official announcement has been made.
So let us hope that the pending activities are finished quickly, and we get to watch the Highschool DxD Season 5 as soon as possible.
So now that we know when we can probably watch season 5 of Highschool DxD, let us see who will be the cast and who will give them a voice.
Cast: Who Will Be in Highschool Dxd Season 5, and Who Will Give Them a Voice?
The cast of the new season of Highschool DxD has not yet been announced, but it is believed that the cast of this season will be very similar to the previous season. The voice of the characters will, like the previous seasons, be dubbed in both Japanese and English languages for audiences in the home country, i.e., Japan and also for audiences all around the globe( as it is a worldwide hit).
The cast and voice artists for this season will be as follows.
Issei Hyoudou- The lead character Issei Hyoudou will be voiced by Yuki Kaji(in Japanese) and Josh Grelle (in English).
Rias Gremory– The beautiful devil, Rias Gremory, will be in the 5th season, and she will be voiced by Yoko Hikasa( in Japanese) and Jamei Marehi(in English).

Since no official announcement from the team has been made so far, we are unaware of the new faces that we might see in Highschool DxD Season 5, but this will add to the surprise element of the show, and surprises are always excellent.
Let us see what will happen in the fifth season of Highschool DxD.
Plot: What Will Happen in High School Dxd Season 5?
Highschool DxD revolves around a pervert boy(Issei Hyoudou) who wants to be the Harem king who is killed on his first date by and then revived backs a devil by a charming and top tier devil. Since then, Issei has allied with other devils and is fighting against the fallen angels and the church. Also, his desire to be the Harem king comes true. There are a lot of references to gods and dragons in the show, and the show is full of ordinary-looking people with superpowers.
Though no official announcement has been made regarding what we may get to witness in the next season, it is for sure the new season will be full of harem and action and romance. It is also believed that season 5 of Highschool DxD will be based on the 11th and 12th volume of the manga series(novel). The new season will continue to revolve around the Kuoh Academy.
The creators claim that the new season will be way better than all the previous seasons. Let us hope that this comes true.
Will the Show Be the Same as the Manga Series?
Also, we are not sure whether the new season will be based entirely on the novel or will have some deviations,i.e., whether the crew will use their creativity in this new season to surprise the audience who have already read the manga or if it will be the same as the novel.
The chances are that we may get to see a plot that is very similar to the manga because the reason behind differences between Tetsuya Yanagisawa, Takao Yoshioka, and Ichiei Ishibumi was that the former deviated from the actual manga. Ichei Ishibumi made everybody in the crew for season 4 read the novel carefully and present it as it has been written. As the cast for this season will be the same as previous seasons, so, we may witness no deviations in the plot.
Let us look at some extra information regarding the new season and the anime franchise as a whole.
