Crunchyroll Adds “High School DxD” To Streaming Lineup


So, uh… this… is one of those shows you watch for the “plot,” isn’t it?

Earlier today, Crunchyroll announced that they added High School DxD to their digital lineup. The series went live at 7:00PM Pacific (10:00PM Eastern) for users in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, and Ireland.

High School DxD is based on Ichiei Ishibumi’s light novel series of the same name. The show, which aired in the Winter 2012 season, was directed by Tetsuya Yanagisawa (Daimidaler: Prince vs. Penguin Empire, Destiny of the Shrine Maiden) at TNK. Junji Goto (School Days, Daimidaler: Prince vs. Penguin Empire) provided character designs for the project, while Takao Yoshioka (Daimidaler: Prince vs. Penguin Empire, Watamote) took charge of series composition.

Crunchyroll describes High School DxD 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!
