Characters & Voice Actors
High School DxD is based on the light novels written by Ichiei Ishibumi and illustrated by Miyama-Zero. It stands out from the other ecchi harems that I have seen in sense that the first season cannot really be considered a harem but rather Issei going after the female love interest Rias Gremory. Some of the other female characters do show interest such as Asia when Issei becomes more intimate with the other girls. But the real harem aspects of High School DxD show up in the second season. If you are a fan of the ecchi genre you will be pleased to hear that DxD has plenty of perverted panty shots and uncensored boobs. I went into it not knowing what to expect, and surprisingly it has exceeded the relatively low expectations I had for it.
High School DxD falls into the "it's good for what it is" category and does not try to be something it is not. This is why it should be viewed as first and foremost a fan service show. With some laugh out loud moments, senseless antics and occasional dramatic tones in the overarching plot. This is what makes it stand out from most other ecchi’s that resort to covering an unintelligible story with lots of fan service. High School DxD has an actual story and distinctive character development. With the fan service aside the show actually does have its merits. I particularly like the art style, decent visuals, and the music score.
High School DxD gives you a lot of variety in the female characters as well as the situations they get undressed. The girls of the Occult Research Club range from Koneko, a very petite and small breasted girl who displays a lack of emotion and seems rather unaffected by everything. To Akeno who is busty and seems to take some enjoyment from Issei’s antics. As well as the voluptuous Rias with Asia more on the petite side. All of the female characters are sexy and attractive in different ways.
High School DxD is all about mindless fun with a respectable amount of T&A. Evaluate it as a fan service focused series; it delivers on what it is, an ecchi harem comedy with an angels versus devils versus fallen angles aspect (This can get pretty confusing and doesn't make sense at times). It is a little better than average and one of the top recent series in its genre. Don’t go into watching this with the wrong mentality expecting it to be something it is not. You will be disappointed, watch it for what it is and you may find enough enjoyment to keep watching. I would recommend it to anyone new to ecchi and if this sounds interesting to anyone they should definitely check it out.
With such series' like Rosario Vampire and Aki-Sora, the ecchi and harem genre has never been stronger. It is with such series going around that the genre being what it is that makes High School DxD an instant hit for fans of the genre. On the surface, it's an over-the-top, high-paced, fan-serviced spectacle that many fans of this genre love. With its rather cliche plot and possibly even more cliche characters, it'll capture you granted that you don't mind tits and asses.
Storywise, it starts out slow. The build-up is slow and the way the overall premise is established is slightly faster, but still very much slow. The story goes through two arcs in the first season. Possibly one of the highlights is the insults of the writing. Yes, I definitely think that the insults and the multiple ways of calling a person a douche and even the multiple terms for wanting to have sex with someone. Granted, sometimes the writing interferes with the story, but as I stated, the story itself is a bit cliche, but it catches on and somehow you'll find yourself being drawn to it.
I think one of the most impressive things about this series is the art style. It's with the art that one is drawn to an anime or manga first. We look with our eyes before we read and delve into the universe presented to us in the visual form. The fluid animation brings an added bonus to the art itself. It just might be the best thing about the series.
The musical score and other such sound effects really brought the series to life. With a brilliant composer such as Ryosuke Nakanishi, it's hard not to just fall deeply in love with the music. I will admit that at times it slightly felt out of place, but that's only in the smallest of ways.
As stated beforehand, the characters took a while to build and some of them had cliche moments, but there definitely was a good amount of heart put forth into them. As much as the series is fan service, the characters showed surprising development in the twelve episodes. That's not to say that there weren't moments where I had my doubts — cause there were. There were even some characters that I felt that could have been left out. Hell, there were even some characters that I felt were wasted opportunities. Still, with that being said, I felt the main characters, at least, were handled well.
So, overall the series is good for those who like harem, ecchi, laugh-out-loud moments, and over-the-top action that makes one question their sanity. It's a good time and the heart is there. My final score is 7/10. 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.
Ecchi, Oppai and a story that you can easy follow
Both the heroines of these series may not be similar in personalities, Rias is the caring type, Lisara is the "tsundere" type, but both are extremely sexy girls from the underworld. Each of them will have to deal with perversion of the main protagonist as more girls will join the group on their adventure through the series.
Perverted male protagonist + a group of girls, isnt that a perfect combination?
• 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.
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
-they both set place in high school
-the male mc in both are perverted
-the female mc in both are red-headed
-they are both about demons
You've probably already seen Highschoo DxD, if you've seen Dakara Boku wa, H ga Dekinai, but if not, you definetly should. Highschool DxD is similar to Dakara- in many ways, just the characters for example, Kaga and Issei are both perverted highschool boys, with a similar love for oppai and women in general. Lisara and Rias are also both mysterias and simple at the same time.
Overall, these two are practically hatched from the same shell.
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 ! ;)
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).
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!!!
