Characters & Voice Actors
Sex, lewd thoughts, and imaginations. Here's an interesting little trivia: Did you know that the average man in our world today think about sex nearly every 56 seconds? Fact or fiction, you decide. Of course, this is all normal. I mean, our minds is filled with all sorts of imaginations and dreams whether it'd be finding the perfect girlfriend or going on your first dream date. In this anime known as the High School DxD, our protagonist Hyudo Iseei goes from a lecherous second-year high school student attending Kuoh Academy to someone he hasn't began to imagine before.
At first glance, the title High School DxD doesn't really stand out much. The first two words “high school” is probably a place most of us made good (or bad memories) in our lives. Of course, Issei hopes to make good memories because the school has recently turned into co-ed from a former girls-only school. And where else would a healthy boy at his puberty stage wants to make most of it? High school of course. But not all is easy as he is known to be creepy at the academy. With few “real” friends, the chances of making his goal of high school memories is becoming slim.
That of course later changes when the unthinkable happens and he is killed by his very first girlfriend. Talk about bad luck, I can only think of one person off my head right now with the Imagine Breaker with that sort of luck. But is this really bad luck? Because the most beautiful and respected character of the school and series takes attention of him...
First, we have the beautiful Rias Gremory. She is someone everyone admires and lusts about. She is the president of the Occult Club. And she is of course, the main heroine as well as one of the reasons some of us are watching this series for the lulz. She takes a curious interest in our protagonist Issei after the incident but what really makes her unique is her definite character. Behind her outer shell is a girl who takes responsibility and does what she does best: helping others. These traits seem to pass onto Issei for despite his creepiness around the academy, he is known to be helpful and hardworking.
Then, we have some of the other characters. The sadistic Akeno who is also admired among the academy. Playful and flirtatious, she plays the role of the one-sama whom a lot of us wants to be “treated” by her. Then, we have our mascot, the all adorable loli Koneko-chan. Behind that cute loli apperance lies a girl of power and valor who puts her own life at risk to help others. Next, we have Asia-san, the pure girl that reflects the innocence of the series after all the lewd story arcs and peerage. Finally, we have Kiba who serves as the antithesis of Issei, whom he despises to no end. And of course, all these characters of the Occult Club are the bridge to Issei's path of becoming someone who he never thought he'd be.
By this point, some of you reading this review are probably thinking “god damn it, not another harem” or “fan-service...what else is new?” And of course, I agree there. Fan-service is nothing new but a device used to attract viewers. So, if you can't take the boobs, ass, and nudity, then feel free to watch another series. If you have a serious issue with the uncensored scenes and fan-service, then just drop the damn series as no one is forcing you to watch. However, if you can take it like a true anime fan, then kudos to you as you will be proud once you complete perhaps the ecchiest (if that's even a word) series of this year 2012.
The art of this series is just meh for me. I didn't take much notice of it as most people are probably paying attention more to the action and fan-service than art when watching this. I don't blame you, I mean who could take their eyes off one second of that million dollar body of Rias Gremory? :) Then, of course, the sound. I do admit that it does mixes in well especially in later episodes where the seriousness conveys the more dramatic visage of the story. It's not as powerful as Yuki Kajiura's soundtracks from Mai-Hime or Tsubusa Chronicles but still all in all, it does fit well once you listen to it carefully.
Despite being labelled as a ecchi and even harem on MAL, this series does have a storyline. Yes, can you believe it? An actual ecchi anime with a decent storyline! As such in series like this, you can expect the master and slave relationship. One catch though. This time, the girl is the master. Some of the viewers watching this may now think about the typical “master/slave” fantasies or “king's game” from your heads now. However, behind the scenes of the fan-service and nudity lies a story where a young boy goes from zero to hero. The storyline gets deeper in the light novels but the anime isn't all too shabby. It starts off as a predictable opening, goes to a more emotional setting, and then goes out with a bang. A literal bang thanks to what Issei learns and became throughout the series.
So, you're probably asking yourself now: “should I watch this?” Honestly, that's an ambigious question. When God gave us brains, we all have different views on everything like anime, manga, life, appearances, etc. However, if you just watched the trailer or first 5 mins of the series and decided to hit that drop button, then I feel really sorry for you. Why? Because this series is more than just about ecchi and fan-service. It has potential. It has emotion. It has drama. It has interest.
If you have serious problems with watching this anime, then maybe think about your High School memories. I bet Issei's virginity that the memories of your High School years won't be that much better than this series. (well, at least for me) read more
Personally I loved this show, I honesty dont care much for the echi in the show but to let others know if you dont like it at all, avoid this show. If you do like it your in for a treat. Now if you want to watch it for its interesting story and humor its very good in my opionion.
Based off a series of novels this anime follows it closely. Its your normal highschool boy struggling to gain power throughout the anime and is feared for the power he may one day posess, with your typical harem mixed in with it. But what i find interesting in the story is the christain's church's staning in it, i loved how the anime talks about fallen angels, angels and demons are battling each other (or once did).
I want to say the art is better than a 7, but i just cant. there were quite a few instances where they could have worked with the coloring and even the backgrounds a bit more or add certain details in some of the combat. but overall it was good so there i nothing really to bash on it about.
The sound was good, the sound effects were spot on but could have been chosen better at certain times again. the songs wer decent nothing really got me all hyped about so all in all, it was good.
Every character was different which was nice. dont get me wrong they over exagerated certain aspects of the characters but that is its humor in the anime so i dont see a fault in it at all. such as the perverted teenager is exagerated beyond words but, its humorous in the situations it puts him in. Now with the 12 episodes of going through certain character's backgrounds it did very well. Now if they get a second season and stick with the novels it will soon tell the story of every person in the group and explains why each one was chosen by Rias (the master devil of the group) and why they hold grudges to certain groups.
I really enjoyed it but this may be a little biased due to reading the books and getting really pumped for the show. But if you dont mind all the perverted scenes go ahead and watch this, its funny, puts the viewer in a good mood (most of the time), and has a decent story which is easy to follow.
Overall it was very nice. It may have some bad moments throughout the anime but overall it kept me either laughing, or on the edge of my seat waiting for more every week. And i hope whoever watchis this anime will enjoy it as much as i have. read more
-Main normal guy which loves erotic things and has the special powers.
-Main girl is from underworld demon.
-No censorship on the chest and pants.
Red Hair Girl
Perverse lad meets a beautiful redhair, and thus ends up in various shenanigans with monsters and higher beings from another world, both series emphasizes heavily on fanservice.
They're both about demons and have a lot fanservice, as well as no censorship and a main female lead with red hair and perverted, but caring male protagonists, though Dakara Boku wa, H ga Dekinai. is way better than Highschool DxD in every aspect.
same perverted guy who becomes a property of some dark entity, the only diffence is that the guy in the other anime is treated like a their kind while in the other the guy is treated like a dog.
they have very similar art and story.
Perverted protagonist and a girl, who's protecting him.
Main male characters (which look normal, though huge perverts) in both series are seemingly weak at first, but actually possess some special abilities. Main female characters are some sort of demons, and have a lot of authority throughout the series.
I Can't Do H and Highschool DxD are both ecchi and the protagonists fight to protect someone they love. Both anime involves magic and fighting a non-human.
Both have some kind of demon heroin, both heroines have red hair, both have some sort of "contract", and both have them H.
Both have the perverted main male character also both Main male characters are bound to a main female character
Well, in both series, we have the typical high school boy with perverted thoughts. He meets a heroine that has a rather similar appearance but with a mysterious background and forms a "contract" with her.
There is quite a lot of ecchi, comedy, drama, and action in both series. Both anime also contain gag and generics. Just be aware of those if you decide to watch their series from the beginning.
Both are supernatural and have their comedy and ecchi moments.The male main character is also pervert like Issei (even more perverted than he) and the female main character is also similar with Rias.
Similar in the comedy aspect and it's all good ecchi fun. It's also got a battle anime type story going on, they're made for each other.
An pervert boy and a beaultiful red-haired girl... It seems a very similar story
It's pretty like this..... a woman barge onto his life and change everything.. well same level of epicness and ecchiness.... too bad both anime is epic but the ecchiness ruins it but it's still great :)) both is a masterpiece
similar everything literally....
•both have a pervert main protagonist young boy who all he can think is erotic shit
•both have another demon like supernatural red headed woman that uses some supernatural power contract so they are always together
•both have fan service and uncensored,
•both are set placed in a school, which involved fighting with monsters/humans/some supernatural things..
•both contain some comedy if visible, ecchiness to the extreme, school, romance.
•and both i dropped half way through or earlier.
Similar magic harem ecchi shows that feature more "oppai action" than what kids are comfortable with. Nevertheless, these are a notch above the generic harem shows, with a plot that is moving forward and fantastic character designs and animation.
-Both show boobies but i would say Dakara does it more professional and real
-Both MC's are perverts
-Both somewhat die and have a relationship with the heroin
-Both take place in school
ITs about devils and people with special powers. Also they both have some ecchi scenes.
• Both female leads are red head.
• Both female leads are from the underworld realm.
• Both guy loves erotic things.
Both Female Main Protagonist have red hair and demonic power
Both Male Main Protagonist are pervert and have special power
And both are Losers !
In both of these anime there's one main guy character who uses his hornyness as his power. There are also a bunch of girls, and the main character gains power through one of these girls to defeat evil.
Both Dakara Boku wa, H ga Dekinai and High School DxD got a male main character who is extremely perverted and gets power by ecchi stuff and the female main characters in both animes are demons and from the Grimoire clan. They both share a lot of stuff and at first impression they are almost identical but the story is different at the end.
In both anime, the main character is a pervert. High School DxD is about demons, while Dakara Boku wa, H ga Dekinai. is about shinigamis, but both have similar art and ambiance.
Contains Ecchi and extremely Pervert main male.Both anime focuses on magic and special/choosen one(which of course the male prota)
Fap-able and both ended only by 1 arc(12eps)
The opening song is Trance-techno for both anime
it's just like twins anime with different maker....
Both Female Main Protagonist have red hair and demonic power
Both Male Main Protagonist are pervert and have special power
Similarity is quite big in HS DxD and Dakara Boku. The main protagonist is a regular high school boy with a hiden super power/ wepon. A magic demon girl appears who is a royal member of the underworld and somehow they 2 end together. Ecchi is strong in both but Dakara wins with more nudity.
Both are the same type of genres. Highschool dxd has a more interesting and exciting plot though
These two anime are very similar. They mix ecchi with harem and romance. They both involve demons with earth. The main guys special powers are very you could say . . . ecchi. Finally, they focus more on the battle's, but when the ecchi comes you will see some big breasts :D.
- both are about demons and magic and have a similar plot
- Rias and Lisara have many parallels
- both heroine make a contract with the MC
- unfortunately High School DxD is way better
I will say only one thing... tits, tits everywhere. Ok, now lets get serious, DXD and Dakara Boku wa are similar in a lot of ways, main character is servent of a redhead demon/shinigami chick, and he is a pervert ofc. I thing DXD is better, because Dakara Boku wa gets interesting after 6th episode, but most important thing is... TITS, HOLY MOTHER OF TITS, tits everywhere ;)
both have the fan service that people watch the anime for.
both have action involved
The main lead character wants to protect the main female with all hes got. While In High School DXD the main protagnist is open about his felling for boobs , and such, the male lead in Dakara Boku wa, H ga Dekinai is not so open.
Both characters have some sort of hidden power that makes them a lot more valuable.
DxD can be taken as a semi-harem the others is more of a....
Very similar in almost every aspect! If you liked Dakara boku wa, then you will definetly like High School DxD! good fighting scenes, good ecchi, good comedy! give it a try it won't dissapoint.
both anime are ecchi, red haired, demons.
Both are echhi anime
No censorship on the chest
Both guy love erotic things and has the SuperNatural Powers
Both girls has the same color of the hair
In both, the main character gets his powers from sexual thoughts and is surrounded by girls with special powers. Issei is a bit more badass with his powers, but is much more indecisive than Ryosuke. The lead female in each harem also have long red hair and are of royal blood.
- a beautiful red head demon who is also an heiress
- a perverted loser who happens to have a rare sacred weapon
- lots of fighting and nudity involved
A blood world filled with paradise where both the main characters find themselves in an irresistible position of being able to own the highest standard of a woman.
'Highschool of the Dead' highlights the struggle for survival when the apocalypse has arrived. In the midst of such danger, desires arise in the most unpredictable of situations and the thought of 'you only live once' comes into play which in turn leads a person to show his true colours.
'High School DxD' exhibits an ambitious person who will stop at nothing to achieve his goals, be it in a comedic or perverted way. Putting battles side, adding to the picture are several beautiful individuals that would be able to tickle one's sense in the greatest of manners.
If you liked Highschool DxD, then you will like Highschool of the Dead too. Action, Ecchi, Supernatural are some genres in both anime. Cute girls with powers or guns —perfect !
The main characters are similar (a shy girl, the most powerful girl, a smart girl, and a guy...) A harem for the eyes ! ;)
Lots of action and they are both echhi :3
In both shows,the story is good, there are good fights, pretty girls and ecchi.
Both have the "supernatural" aspect, some of the girls are into the protagonist, and of course both have a little bit of ecchi.
Both has same amount of fan service , actions, interesting story lines
Lots of ecchi, some fights, good quality and too much awesomeness all over the anime
hot girls, lots of fanservice, fighting and good story
Oppai, oppai, and then more oppai. These series have redefined the term "fan-service", using some of the most entertaining ways to show off boobs. Must-watch for aspiring gentleman (ecchi-lover).
lots of ecchi, and they both have a lot of action
the horrors of the supernatural and a also some good laughs...
Both shows have a great deal of half naked girls with a weapons, action and humor. What's not to like. So if you enjoyed Highschool DxD, there is no doubt that you'll like HOTD.
Both are about how a guy is suddenly thrown into a life threatening situation where they have no control over.Both are ecchi/action and a little bit of harem type animes.Highschool DxD has more of a demon/action theme to it where as Highschool of the Dead is more of a horror/action.
Highschool of the dead reminded me of Highschool DXD. The main characters are really similar. They series are really good, with a good plot. Either way, both series are a must watch ^.^
-Both focus a lot on action and ecchi.
-Both about monsters. (HOTD has zombies, while DXD has demons, etc)
-Both have 4-5 females, and 2 males as the main characters. Basically what I'm trying to say here, is that in both series there's a group of breasts fighting, while their clothes slowly rips apart, along with 2 other male main characters.
-Both have either weapons/powers.
-Both have lots of blood.
Did I say ecchi? Well imma say it again xD. Both series contains a lot of ecchi~!
It has the same genres, the same harem girl types, and the same need for more, though in DxD's case, it has received a 2nd Season and the 3rd will probably be released Late 2014 or Early 2015
Both have a same genre Harem,Ecchi and action
Both have strong bad ass characters
Both have a friend that needs to be protected
- Both have a 'highschool' and paranormal settings.
- MC in both series is easily like-able.
- Both follow a fan service/ecchi theme.
I watched High school DxD before HOTD and was hesitant to watch Highschool of the Dead because I ignorantly decided that it was probably going to be dull and no real plot however, I pulled myself to watch it and it was honestly surprising how there were elements which evoked emotion and not just in an erotic way... Definitely a must watch.
Both have some good ecchi towards the females, they both have some good action scence and thrilling finale. These 2 are must watch anime!!!
