People keep saying that they dislike the new artstyle, but it may in fact add a new playful aspect to the show. -although loosing a lot of it's mature aspects.

"loosing a lot of it is mature aspects" isn't English.

@Zefyris Don't get me wrong, I loved Rokka no Yuusha anime, but it's Passione's inexperience and the new staff that makes me skeptical. They haven't done anything like this, I'll be more than happy for my worries to be proven wrong.
The staff doesn't feel very good, yes.
I would compare this more to stuff like Alderamin's adaptation, where no one really stood out as experienced, and it indeed lead to a very clumsy result where inexperience was felt everywhere.

Glad to finally hear news of this! I'm not gonna say it looks bad, but I still don't fancy the new character designs, they made the girls look kinda generic...and studio Passione? Mehhh.

To be fair, High School DxD is a novel, and Passione is responsible for one of the most faithful novel adaptation we ever got. (regardless of how much you liked it, it was very faithful). It's also responsible for a complete failure on that part, so half/half I guess?
Although since the staff is different, it's not like it's going to be any indication of how faithful this one is going to be~

Just give me more Asia, she looks weird now though I dunno how to feel about it

Not sold on the art. Really not a fan after being used to seeing the same style for 3 seasons.

According to Anime News Network, the following seiyuu so far are confirmed for reprising their roles:

Kaji Yuuki as Hyoudo Issei
Hikasa Yoko as Rias Gremory
Asakura Azumi as Asia Argento
Itou Shizuka as Akeno Himejima
Taketatsu Ayana as Koneko Tōjō
Nojima Kenji as Yūto Kiba
Koyama Rikiya as Azazel
Ohsaka Ryota as Vali Lucifer
Nakamura Yuuichi as Sairaorg Bael


Good start, but that still has me a bit worried since that's far from the full list of characters. Idk how many other characters will appear in the volumes they're adapting, but that still leaves out:

- Ddraig
- Albion
- Kuroka
- Xenovia
- Serafell
- Sirzechs
- Irina
- Ophis
- Souna
- Gasper
- Ravel
- Roseweisse

And those are just the bigger named characters, that's not including side characters like family members or classmates.

Will Taneda Risa be in this? I miss her so much.

Oh yeah, I'll take more High school dxd. And really diggin' the character designs. I think it's cuter.

Sad news, at the end of S3, I thought, they fucked it up good, if they had keeping going like in the 2 first seasons... but we managed to reach S4, but the mistakes done on S3 will be the end of the adaptation sadly, if they had just keep following like they always did, instead of some original crap that turned it for worst.

From what I got from some people they'll follow what they originally had in the first 2 seasons (2 volumes).

Can say I can understand why this change was made (at least in change in everything) because the author got pissed at the studio for how they handled the adaptation, so that's really why they lost their license really.

I still like TNK but yeah that really blows.

once again, primarily targeting ecchi/fanservice, comment floating around

so you clicked this video just to let people know how much you dont like this stuff? why cant you just go away and not watch it? looks might suspicious


Have you ever looked at my list? I've probably seen fanservice shows you haven't even heard about.

DxD is trash, as far fanservice shows goes. It's fucking garbage and has always been. Deal with it.


Thank you for stopping by and giving your minority opinion.
We'll place it in the prestigious circular file folder.
Please, stop by again if you have anything valuable to contribute.

Season three of Highschool DxD really screwed with the storyline and any enjoyment I could potentially feel. So I'm not sure whether I care about another softcore hentai ecchi bullcrap, I'd only watch it to justify reading the 15 volumes of Light novels read. (That and best girl Akeno)

4chan, and other websites. Some news websites. You can check his twitter if you can read Japanese. Some say yes because of that happened in BorN - even when the author did change some stuff. Guess he himself find S3 as a mistake (had to write a Novel to make it canon again).

Also miyama (LN original artist) wanted a different style and so did the author. So we ended up with this futa artist.

I heard that TNK were kicked out and stuff (sceptical about this part as well).

Even as a DxD Fan, I kinda hope this season will be the final anime. Why? I don't want to see them butcher about the series I like so much. But with that staff, studio and art change, I think they pretty much want to kill DxD as anime.
Please man no, the majority of DxD fans was only into the anime. Because reading without seeing and just your imagination was lame.
It's too much bothersome to read Light Novels with just few chapter illustrations. We rather get a lame/mediocre adaptation than to let it end.
Well, if things get to worse maybe Japan needs assistance from other countries. Just like what's happening on FLCL series. (financial issues.)


Sadly I don't see a bright future for the DxD Anime. Also the LN is fairly easy to read, even I'm not the best with English. I prefer good adoptions, not half abortions.
