Behold lovers of ecchi! January’s almost here and so is the start of anime series “High school DxD”, produced by TNK and Genko. Based on the light novel by Ishibumi Ichiei, the anime has all the magic ingredients to become the next “High school of the Dead”… Romance, demons, comedy, school and of course – ecchi, are all the storylines we’ll see this January. You can either keep reading the preview or warm-up with the promo, as seen on Shinigami-sama’s site…
UPDATE: The date for this show’s first episode has been set to January 6th, 2012.
The story centres around pervy and stupid second year high school student Issei Hyoudou, who is actually killed by a girl on his first date ever. He’s later reborn as a devil, who obeys the prettiest girl on campus – Riasu Gremory, who’s also a high-level devil.
Rias is voiced by Rouko Hikasa (Mio Akiyama in K-ON!, Seraphim in Kore wa Zombie Desu ka?, Hana Katsuragi in Seikon no Qwaser), while Issei’s seiyuu is Yuuki Kaji (Shion in No.6, Shu Ouma in Guilty Crown, Miwa Konekamaru in Ao no Exorcist).
Asia Argento, another girl (moe-type, this time) from the unusual high school also has her seiyuu actor announced – Azumi Asakura (Yukiho Hagiwara in The iDOLM@STER).
Hit? When you see the success of “High school of the Dead” and how every second otaku you know believes there’s nothing wrong with “ecchi”, you can’t deny “High school DxD” has its place in the anime industry. It’ll be full of humour, sexy ladies, demons and romance, embodied in big-breasted or moe characters. If want to see something funny and light-hearted, you shouldn’t miss the series.
Miss? If you’re annoyed with ecchi comedies and high school romance, you’ll probably hate it. Too bad you’re probably a minority.
