Not sure I want a season 4 of DxD after the mess that was season 3...
Sure, you can argue that it was written by the author itself even though it deviated from the LN, but remember that the season 2 of Tokyo Ghoul was also written by the original author...
They left one of the best parts I wanted to see animated from the S3, which was the Rating Game between Rias and Sona, where for the 1st time in the series is stressed how Rias's team is full of power-bakas who can get their ass handed to them by weaker enemies who have more utility.

Still waiting for that new DxD season.

Jul 30, 2016 12:40 AM by Protaku

as expected from Rias kaichou

THe author said that DxD will not go past vol 30. This is 22. We have 8 vols to go

Hmm... Well, somehow I did so expected, but nevertheless... This means that the LN series still further few years going will. DxD belongs already to the long runner LN series, and has then for about together 10 possible anime seasons saved. - What this not bad would...^_^

Just waiting for YenOn to license Saekano.

Jul 29, 2016 9:30 AM by Brynhild

Go Saekano go.

My baby, love the LN and love that Utaha arc for Volume 10 <3

Hmm... If I one the cover from the latest/newest voll. of DxD so see, I'd then guess that the LN series soon ends. Because Rias holds her diploma and she is in her graduation clothing (what we of course know, that her graduation of the highschool is). From there I can't imagine how the story continue should - Probably Rias (and Akeno) as the university student and Issei as the next club president of the occult club? - But let's see...

Btw, there are enough source materials for a another 3-5 seasons (if not more)...xD

Maybe saison 4 for DxD :D

*7. *9,780 **9,780 Papa no Iukoto wo Kikinasai! after Vol.1

Interesting... there's a continuation to that ending of vol. 18?

*quick search on Japanese websites*

Considering this is named "Vol. 1" I think we're assuming that we'll have sequels to this... hopefully the author is happy if he knows that his LN still sells.

It seems to be a very happy After story^^

So when will the High School DxD LN get licensed?

I don't see why they can't and I don't want to read it's manga version.


Hopefully after the series is done. Cause Yen Press is trash

Arifureta Shokugyou de Sekai Saikyou is becoming popular lately, wouldn't be surprised if it gets an anime in the future. Well, High School DxD is still doing well.

Jul 28, 2016 1:30 PM by Stark700

I demand an Arifureta anime, it's already time for it...

Wait, didn't the author of Papa no Iukoto wo Kikinasai! die? Why is there a sequel now with him credited as the writer...
And really? Is the girl MC married pregnant? I mean, it's not really incest, welp I guess.


The author left a manuscript before he died and the publishing staff edited it.

Yes, she is pregnant and she gives birth at the end of the novel. You can find pics of the volume somewhere. It's not incest because they don't have any relation by blood.


Hmm interesting would love to see an OVA for it since as i remember at last OVA there was already a time skip.
