High School DxD


Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

I, Hyoudou Issei, am a 2nd Year High school student and my age is equal to the number of years I haven’t had a girlfriend. And, someone like me got a girlfriend! I’m sorry buddies, I will walk the path of becoming an adult before you guys! – That’s how it was supposed to be, but why did I get killed by my girlfriend!?

I still haven’t done anything yet! Are there no Gods in this World!?

And, the person who saved me is the most beautiful girl in my school, Rias Gremory-senpai. I learned the shocking truth from her who isn’t a God but a Devil. “You have reincarnated as a Devil! Work for me!”

Lured by Senpai’s breasts and treats, my life as a reincarnated Devil began.

So the “Academy×Love Comedy×Battle Fantasy” starts here with just aggressive and worldly desires!

1 word. B**bs.

If you are able to get past the ginormous fanservice, you will be able to see a deep story involving personal issues among the whole cast. But lets face it, you read this for the fanservice don't you.

Lastly, Issei really needs to grow a pair and make this an 18+ LN.

This is the most shounen you can get.

Pe*verted highschooler gets awesome magical ability. Proceeds to become OP without a lot of training. Forms harem of all kinds of powerful girls. Epic fights. Friends with all of the most powerful beings. Everybody loves him.

This is the epitome of wish fulfillment. I've never watched this, and if I ever told somebody I did, I'd be embarrassed. But somehow, I'm glad this exists.

Let me start off and say that since this is my favorite Light Novel, I may be slightly biased. But there is much more to this story than meets the eye.

This novel has a bizarrely schizophrenic feel to it. It almost feels as if the writer was writing two different stories at once and didn't realize they involved the same characters until after he was done. On one side you have a truly delicious harem lovefest only hampered by the editorial restrictions keeping things from going R-15. All of the... more>> girls have their own distinct personalities, and every one of them is both lovable and interesting, a rarity among harem series. Moreover, every major character has their own personal development, showing a level of character development not normally seen in such series. This includes Issei, who goes from Generic McPervy #496247 to someone fully aware of his own flaws and strives to improve both himself and the world around him. Also, in a turn of events that heralded the oncoming tide of "True Harem" stories, any notion that the story will end with a single girl "winning" is thrown out the window by the writer himself in one of the afterwords. The series going full-on Tenchi was an excellent move on the writers part as it skips all the drama and goes straight to "lots of cute girls do lots of cute things".

Then we get to the other half of the story, and are thrown into a massive world filled to the brim with every mythology you can think of, all on the brink of another devastating super-war that would inevitably lead to the annihilation of everything. However, the powers-that-be have wised up a bit since last time and are trying to keep things from boiling over. For once it actually works, and a tentative alliance between the three Christianity based factions (Angels, Demons, and Fallen Angels) is born. And then immediately put under siege by dissenters who very much want to do the whole "everybody dies" thing. Thus the crux of the plot is born.

For once, power is in the hands of the good guys (as one would expect since they seized power from the a**holes trying to get everyone killed), and the enemy organization (the Chaose Brigade) is incapable of fighting the leaders head on. They are, however, very good at launching terrorist strikes and guerrilla warfare. Which is where the main characters come in. The Gremory peerage starts out simply being wrapped up in various attacks, and then gradually becomes the Brigades living nightmare. They manage to take out several of the Brigades leaders, which doesn't go unnoticed. Following the Brigades collapse and replacement by a much worse organization, the Alliance forms a counter-terror team (called DxD, of course) from the Gremory peerage and several similarly anomalous groups. So there we have it. A massive myth-filled world with a modern take on the gods and demons of ages past, concerning the desperate need to move forward and change set against the stubborn pride of ancient beings thousands of years old, all centered around a Tenchi-esque romcom and a boy learning to be a man.

And yet, it works. It works nearly perfectly. The two stories blend almost seamlessly, giving the greater story a much more personal and relatable standpoint while adding a sense of tension and risk to the smaller one. Not to say there aren't a few hiccups, like when Ishibumi forgets which story he's writing at the time and brings out a song about b**bs in the middle of a tense and emotionally straining scene involving Ise going on a mu*derous rampage, but eh, nobody is perfect.

At the end of the day, Highschool DxD is just really damn good (hah, cause they're devils). The comedy makes me laugh, the fights make me cheer, the romance (yes, actual romance) makes me "D'AWWWW" right out of my chair. Now we just need to club the editor in a back alley so Issei and the girls can get on with it. <<less

Holyhell, this might probably the longest harem novel I have seen which I guess has led to its downfall. As an author, you gotta know when to end the story, just to be clear I loved this novel till volume 12, but after that things started to get dragged out a lot. You see, when your harem story is plagued with stereotypical main polygamy protagonist who is pe*vert and all about b**bs this and harem king that, but actually is full of hot air when it comes to real action.... more>> After one point, the whole ecchiness and fan-service gets tedious and tiring because you know the characters are never gonna reach the 2nd base, just when the things starts to get serious they always get interrupt by someone and you know the first snu-snu2 is obviously gonna happen with the main female lead Riaz first, so other girls needs to get in line. The illustrations in each novel has gotten a lot less too, nearly every illustration is a fan-service and only rarely you would see an illustration with Issei on action.

-Seriously, this novel is almost 22 volumes strong and still on-going you are gonna get annoyed, and I don't blame people who hate harem (and believe there are a lot) because the whole genre is infested with such silly tropes where characters act like ret*rded and don't know how pen*s and v*gina works or where specially s*x is treated as end game final boss item only to be used at last. Look, I am not asking for a full blown hentai storyline from author, it can even happen in the background (which it probably would for the other characters) for all I care, but at least characters would move on from the standstill and act differently in front of Issei instead of always teasing him into s*x which never happens.

Conclusion:- At volume 16, I am official dropping this novel for good even a great harem story like Mushoku Tensei's author knew when to end it properly and that had a harem for just 3 girls instead of whole army we have going around here which gets stronger and stronger by each volume. The author is obviously milking the story because of popularity with three anime adaption and 4th season on the way. <<less

Fanservicey to a fault. Normally this is a bad thing as fanservice (in general) implies a hastily written plot or just badly written in general, but well.... the level of escalation that is involved with the main character's love for fanservice kind of transcends that to the point where even as a casual reader, the reader is FORCED to just sit back and stare in wonderment as his love of fanservice breaks all known laws in the book's universe itself. I mean it's not often you end up reading a... more>> novel where the main character makes an ancient relic cry not by beating them but by being praised.

Frankly, the fun factor in this series is really high and it deserves every bit of it, it's not the absolute best novel out there, but if you enjoy the basic premise of the story, you'll find that this is actually one of the better written pieces of fanservicey novel, the characters do have depth (and volume... and bounciness.....) and there is an overall plot that is rather strong. <<less

This is the worst Light Novel I have ever read, I liked the premise, but I was deeply disappointed because this is just your average crappy harem novel.

Sadly it just get worse after volume 13, and from volume 22 onward it become complete tr*sh, it get so absurdly bad that I dropped it. For the first time in my life I was forced to drop a series without finishing it.

Issei, the protagonist, is very unlikable and annoying, and he too get even worse as the story goes on.
The author... more>> is completely incapable of writing romance, and the usual crappy harem makes everything a million of times worse.
The female characters are all one dimensional cliche characters without any traces of personality or characteristic that just want to be the protagonist lover. And obviously, every single one of them fall in love for the protagonist without any reason at all. Also, there is too much fan service and it quickly becomes boring and repetitive.
This novel has many other bad traits, but the two worst things are the extremely bad romance and the harem. They just ruin simply everything.
It's a pity, because if this novel didn't had any traces of romance and harem it would have been much much better.

I strongly advise to avoid this light novel, If you're bored then go stare a brick wall or something like that, it will be more interesting. <<less

Must say that they always get to the point of having s** but never actually do it. It gets really annoying after occurring repeatedly. I got so frustrated that I gave up reading.

This novel is full of fanservice, to the point of being ridiculous. A lot of cringe and forced moments. Sometimes it even suprises me, just how s*upid the MC's power up can be. But somehow I just can't get enough of this novel. It's true that there are many "funny" situations and inconsistency, but for me, it's just the characteristic which distinguish this novel from the other.

Maybe this review is heavily biased. The reason being the fact this novel was the one that got me into the world of... more>> light novel. Therefore I might have overrated it. Nevertheless I really think that this novel has a pretty deep story, aside from the fanservice. <<less

This series was quite enjoyable in early volumes.

What ruined this series was, ecchi getting out of hand. Later, it became not funny to the point of disturbing.

I didnt think a short story would piss me off this much (VL15), that I called quits on a series.

The novel over all is good but some of the running gag is over use and sometime the fans service goes to far to the point of making the story dumb. I love fan service like any male as long as it blends in with the story but sometime it feels force and there just to be there. And the MC is one of the most dense person I have ever read about. Not to mention he want to be a harem king and had so many chances to have... more>> s*x but turn every chances down so far. One scene I remeber was when a girl from an enemy team make a move on him and he said that the boss of girl must be gay to turn her down and I literally face palm myself because he has a whole harem throwing themself at him and he done nothing beside lite kissing and oppai[boob] touching and he's calling someone else gay.

So over all if you can get over some of the dumb running gag, over use fan service and dense ass MC then this story isn't half bad. <<less

This novel is unusual balance of harem, humor and action.

There are many novels who deal with these genres but miss out one of the things or mess up plot while doing so.

Story is very balance paced and there are none plot holes so far.

... more>> This novel is ecchi but its not like its to the level you feel disgusting, its used in sense of humor which should be okay for almost all people to read even those who dislike ecchi.

Girls tend to be quite open in the whole series but it doesnt go much beyond kissing and those too tend to come very few times.

General plot line focuses on Devils, Fallen Angels, Angels, Gods, Valkeyrine, Dragons and heroes.

MC is a Dragon and a Devil at the same time. MC is a pe*vert and has a harem seeking fetish, he's an idiot. A likeable one!

His Team is ofcourse that of Devils in which all of them are unusual ones (as expected of a team to backup MC!)

If you tend to have interests in Mythologies and stuff along those lines. This is going to be a good read for you. Even though its not much but it does touch lots of mythologies while plot is moving.

Overall its very fun to read, give it a try! <<less

I love it. Plain and Simple. Forget the eechi, it's just fanservice. If you can get past that, you'll see an amazing world filled with good story telling, deep plot, and even more amazing characters.

The only real problem I have with this novel is how little time has passed in it. 22 Volumes in, and they are still in high school. Even though they are going to live for [thousands, maybe even ten's of thousands of years.] << taken straight from the novel.

Oh, and the fact that Issei, our Oppai... more>> loving dragon still hasn't taken the v**ginity from his many wives yet; makes me wonder how much of a pe*vert he really is. <<less

Me and this novel has a love and hate relationship so take this with a grain of salt yo. So lets start off with our MC, he starts off whimpy, and has never had a girl friend.. Go figure. :D. Slowly the nice little niche "ecchi action" novel starts to take weird turns somewhere down the road and we somehow get power flowing from nipples.. Meeeeh. That's where me and this novel started to have relationship issues. Doesn't help our MC is obsessed with breasts to a idiotic extent..... more>> But hey! If you like ecchi and a decent plot.. And waifu's heres your novel! <<less

I started reading DxD and I loved it, I binged it till around v24 and now that I have too much DxD in my system I'm currently on hiatus. The story is good, the lore is amazing, the characters are really fleshed out. However, the only problem I have with it is that it doesn't have very good world building. I love stories like Mushoku Tensei, and Tensei Slime because of the world building. It's just that DxD doesn't compare to the two series' world building. But it's a really... more>> good series. <<less

i loved the series but sometime it just get so s*upid that it make hard to read (i mean s*upid because it is like that even thought plot wise if you force it a bit it make sense)

anyway, a lot of good character and good rivals, a saint (devil....?) of a main heroine with an heart as big as her breast, same with Akeno, good illustration and some good moment (the power up feel really good to read)

A lot of people are hating on this because of all the fan service.

though it kinda gets annoying at times, when you get passed that, there is actually a good enough plot.


if you can get past all of MCs oppai wants and needs, there is actual politics and action and mythology grade fighting with it.

Well so basically we have a wimpy protagonist who gets killed by a hot girl, only to be revived by another hot girl but, this time with cool powers. Join our protagonist Hyoudou Issei as he goes on his mission of savouring b**bs while saving the world as a side project. The story indeed gets frustrating because with every girl, he gets to the point of just having s** when suddenly something happens. In the end if you are really going to give this book a read, I have just... more>> one thing to say to you, b**bs.

No, I'm serious, it actually reaches a point where his complete power is derived from b**bs. <<less

This is like the bible for Harem and Ecchi fans. Issei is like the personification of all breast lovers. Lol

What makes this series so great is the comedy, and characters. The story starts off as a supernatural slice of life series but as time goes on the conflict becomes more and more intense and story gets a lot more serious, but of course with Issei as your MC you'll still laugh in some of the serious moments. Although has of late there hasm't been much laughing and mostly epic ass... more>> kicking.

TBH this story would still be great without the b**bs. The story is actually really interesting. The way the author mixes a lot of different mythologies is pretty creative.

All in all it's a really fun series. Oh, how could I forget the harem?! You wanna know how good the harem is?

The leaders of the fallen angels, devils, and angels have a bet on how much kids will Issei have in the future lol <<less

Honestly, I can stand all the bullsh*t plot armor, typical "as long as I believe in my freinds" shounen ridiculousness, but what I can't stand is how much of a limp d*ck the MC is. Sorry if that sounds so bad, no this isn't another Shinji Akari (thank god.)

I mean, he's a ridiculous perv, an [Oppai Dragon] yet he's to scared to make a move on HIS women? Ai, there was a reason he didn't, but that gets resolved by the girls themselves, so what's his excuse now? Nothing... more>> and that's what kills me. Other than that, great story, great characters, decent plot, I absolutely love it! It's a long series, so you should set aside some free days, because you got some catching up to do. The good kind. <<less
