Unknown to normal students, In this school, lots od devils and fallen angels are admitted as students. Each season of Highschool DxD is made from one or two volumes of the light series novel. The first season comprises of the first two volumes of the light series novel, and it revolves around the main character Issie Hyoudou who lives a peaceful life but one day asked for a date by a girl named Yuma Amano. On their first date, she reveals her true identity as a fallen angel named Raynare and asks Issie to die for her.
The next day, when Issie wakes up, he thinks it all was a dream, but he found a naked woman beside him whose name is Rias Gremory- a third-year student and Devil. She reveals Issie that he died yesterday only, and she reincarnated him, which makes her new demon master of Issei. Issei accepts his new life and joins Occult Research Club to serve Rias. The rest of the seasons revolves around Issie, Rias, their friends, and subsequent angels & demons. Season 2 revolves around Rias, Riser Phoenix, and Rating Game System.
