As of press time, no further details are known.

High School DxD is an ongoing light novel series from Ichiei Ishibumi and illustrator Miyama-Zero. The series began publication in September 2008 in Fujimi Shobo’s Dragon Magazine. Collected volumes are published under the company’s Fujimi Fantasia Bunko imprint. To date, 22 volumes have been released, with the most recent hitting Japanese retailers on August 22.

To date, three anime adaptations of High School DxD have been produced: High School DxD, High School DxD New, and High School DxD BorN. All three titles were directed by Tetsuya Yanagisawa (Daimidaler: Prince vs. Penguin Empire, UFO Princess Valkyrie: SPECIAL) at studio TNK. Junji Goto (School Days, Daimidaler: Prince vs. Penguin Empire ) provided character designs on all three shows, while Takao Yoshioka (Elfen Lied, Magical Girl Raising Project) took charge of series composition.

Funimation currently holds the domestic rights to all three seasons of High School DxD. They describe the series as:

A war between heaven and hell is raging on Earth – and hormonal fury is raging in Issei’s pants. Enter curvy redhead Rias, president of The Occult Research Club: a club that doesn’t actually research the occult. They are the occult – and Rias is a Devil!
