Synopsis

The world of High School DxD is filled with devils, fallen angels and exorcists, all blending in with the normal human population. Hidden underneath the average tasks of everyday folk are conflicts and battles resolved by each of these different factions.

Meanwhile, we have Issei Hyoudou - your typical "curious" high school student. His perverted dream is to create his own steamy harem. However, with a stroke of bad luck, Issei's first date turns out to be with a beautiful fallen angel that ends up brutally attacking and killing the poor boy. Talk about a bad date, huh? Luckily though, he is later brought back to life and turned into a devil by Rias Gremory, a devil who now becomes Issei's master. Now, Issei, along with Rias and other fellow devils, must try to make it in the world of devils and angels. Issei fights to become one of the strongest supernatural beings in the world, in hopes of someday making his perverted high school dream come true.

High School DxD is a hilarious harem anime, featuring a variety of supernatural creatures, as well as tons and tons of beautiful ladies! Keeping in mind that, in this series, there is no clear good or evil, who will you root for - angels or devils?

High School DxD is an anime that has been praised as the best ecchi ever made, and in a way that is accurate. Seriously though, it is an ecchi. For all of you ecchi haters, stay away. Shove down your masochistic tendencies and walk away, this is not an anime you are going to enjoy.
We all know what we are getting into when we turn this show on, copious amounts of T&A. High School DxD has quickly become synonymous with that phrase. But even then, that was not the sole reason I turned this show on. I generally am the type that needs a read more

This anime was undoubtedly one of the worst animes I've seen. It was lacking in character development, structural plot, and any redeeming characteristics other than probably giving a numb-skulled male, a stiffy.

Well, let's start with the opening. Three pathetically horny boys, lusting over their fellow school mates, exclaiming their desire for breasts. I realize this is an Ecchi, but the blatant obnoxiousness of the three, especially the male protagonist, Issei, was utterly sickening.

I am not one to preach to the choir, but this anime was beyond sexist. Not the playful tinges evident in most that's easily ignored. It was the real deal. And read more

Surprisingly, despite this being labeled as "harem," this show didn't feel much like harem to me. Really strange. In fact, Sword Art Online felt even more of a harem than this, but ok. Issei only had like one real love interest, and that was Rias. Maybe it's the perspective of socially awkward people who think that if a girl talks to a guy, that means that the girl is in love with the guy that makes them think this is a harem. So I guess harem now means having a bunch of female characters and having one relevant male character in a same show. Oh, read more

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.

Anime: Shinmai Maou no Testament
What the 2 have in common:

It involves a Red Head demon who is in a relationship with a guy, both animes share almost the same genre, except the plot where in HSDxD the Red Head is the master, while in SMnT the Red Head is the slave due to some set backs.

Anime: Highschool of the Dead
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.  read more
