Rias Gremory and Akeno Himejima are two big names among fans of ecchi and sexy waifus. However, as new generations of otaku come, not all know about High School DxD. And as a huge fan, I can’t let that happen!

If you want to know more about Rias, Akeno, and the other gorgeous waifus, follow this High School DxD Watch Order I prepared for my fellow otakus to start 2024 with!

High School DxD Watch Order

Each season and episode has its own title. So, if you’re confused about the watch order, that might be the reason. Anime can be a bit tricky sometimes!

Let’s get into the details.

1. High School DxD (Season 1)

5. Bonus: Blu-Ray/DVD Specials!

Blu-ray disc volumes for seasons one and three also had six short side stories that didn’t affect the watch order of High School DxD. However, I recommend watching them for their sexiness if you can!

High School DxD (Season 1) Specials

01 "Going Sunbathing"
02 "Akeno's Personal Training"
03 "Koneko Goes a Little Over the Top... Meow"
04 "The Untold Story of the Dress Break's Birth?"
05 "Making Udon"
06 "Asia Transforms"

High School DxD BorN (Season 3) Specials

01 "Rias and Akeno, Girl Fight!?"
02 "Church Trio's Underwear, Amen!"
03 "Koneko's Senjutsu Treatment ~nyan"
04 "Levia-tan and So-tan ☆"
05 "Steamy Grayfia"
06 "True Story! Rossweisse-sensei"

When is High School DxD Season 5 coming?

It's rumored that High School DxD Season Five was supposed to launch in 2020, but its development was interrupted by the pandemic. And there are no official announcements so far. I wish they would announce something soon!

Still, considering the number of light novels in the High School DxD series, there’s enough material for new episodes. Plus, new official media is still being released, showing fans haven’t forgotten about it (I haven’t!).

Should we keep our hopes alive?

Become the Harem King!

High School DxD episodes and season titles aren’t the most intuitive, but with them in the correct order, you can start 2024 watching one of the most memorable ecchi anime ever!

Before learning about their personalities, which DxD waifus would you choose to be in your harem? Also, you can discuss your love of DxD in my free online forum, The Otaku Community!

If you prefer to know more about them before answering that question, check out the related posts below. And stick around because I’ll be back soon with more High School DxD for ecchi lovers!
