This spinoff was initially announced during the Fantasia Bunko Daikanshasai Online 2023 live stream event in October 2023, with additional details shared on the anime’s official Twitter account. It’s uncertain at this time whether the spinoff will be a single volume or a full series.

Plot and Synopsis

Junior High School DxD will occur following the occurrences of the original anime. We’ll follow an unnamed descendant of Miyamoto Musashi who experiences a drastic change in her life upon inheriting a magical sword. This blade possesses an extraordinary ability to enhance its wielder’s strength by altering the size of their chest.

High School DxD, conceived in September 2008, originated in Dragon Magazine by creators Ichiei Ishibumi and Miyama-Zero. The narrative gained worldwide recognition after TNK transformed it into an anime, currently available for streaming on Crunchyroll.

The plot for High School DxD is described as:

“On Earth, a battle between heaven and hell is underway, while Issei is dealing with his romantic desires. His first date takes a wild turn when he’s attacked by a winged creature, but he’s saved by Rias, a charismatic redhead who leads The Occult Research Club. Despite its name, the club doesn’t just study the occult – they’re involved in it, and Rias is a Devil.”
