High School DxD is an anime that has been around since 2012, but its light novel and manga franchise have been around far longer than that. Recently, news has been circulating that the anime would be picked up for a new season, and countless fans have been crossing their fingers that after years of waiting, they’d finally get a fifth season.
At this point, there’s still no official word from the show’s production team. However, just in case High School DxD will be renewed for a Season 5, here’s a refresher of all the beloved characters you’ve met in the show’s previous seasons.
Who Are the Characters You’ll Meet in High School DxD?
Issei Hyoudou is High School DxD’s main male character. He’s a third-year high school student in Class 3-B studying at Kuoh Academy, an institution crawling with fallen angels and demons. Due to his perverted nature, Issei is known as one of the school’s three perverts.
He’s Rias Gremory’s Pawn and one of the members of the Occult Research Club. By the end of the Evil Dragon War, Issei gets promoted to a higher rank, namely the High-Class Devil. This promotion means he’s one step closer to his goal, which is to become a “Harem King.”
Rias Gremory is one of the main female characters in the show, so you’ll see a lot of her in the anime. She became an heiress to the Gremory Clan when Sirzechs, her older brother, donned the title of Lucifer. She’s the youngest child of Venelana and Zeoticus Gremory, and their only daughter too.
At Zuoh Academy, Rias is known as the Crimson-Haired Ruin Princess. Not only that, but she’s also one of the prettiest girls in the entire student body and is one of Issei’s fiancées.
Akeno is a first-year college student at Kuoh Academy, and also one of Issei’s fiancées. Akeno is renowned across the school, as she’s the daughter of a Fallen Angel Cadre known as Baraqiel. Other than that, She’s the best friend and Queen of Rias Gremory, and both of them are the Two Great Ladies of Kuoh Academy.
Kuroka Toujou, initially known as just ‘Kuroka,’ is a Nekoshou. A Nekoshou is a rare version of the Nekomata species of Youkai within the High School DxD universe. She’s the older sister of Koneko Toujou—whom we’ll introduce below—and she was once an SS-Class Stray Devil. In fact, she was considered to be one of the most wanted criminals because it was discovered that she killed her master.
However, later on, it was revealed that she only did what she had to do in order to protect her sister. Kuroka is also one of Issei’s many fiancées.
Koneko Toujou, otherwise known as Shirone Toujou, is the younger sister of Kuroka. She’s a second-year high school student at Kuoh Academy, and also one of Issei’s fiancées. Just like her sister, Koneko is also a Nekoshou.
Asia Argento is one of the main female protagonists of the franchise. A third-year high school student at Kuoh Academy, she’s a Reincarnated Devil who can’t seem to shake off her prior faith in God. She possesses a rare Sacred Gear known as the Twilight Healing, and with this, she’s able to heal the wounds of just about anyone—humans, devils, angels, and fallen angels alike.
She used to be one of Rias’ Bishops, however, she’s now the first Bishop of Issei and also one of his fiancées.
Gasper is one of the male main characters of the anime, and what’s interesting about him is that he’s a cross-dressing Dhampir (a half-human, half-Vampire species). Gasper was reincarnated into a Devil by Rias, and functions as her first Bishop. He also has the power to stop time, but he struggles in controlling his abilities. As a result, Rias sealed him in the Academy for quite some time.
Of course, High School DxD has a plethora of fun and amusing characters with varying personalities and characteristics. We’ve only mentioned some of the main protagonists, but we hope this article was enough to refresh your memory and remind you of how much you enjoy this anime.
