"I Work as a Devil!" is the sixth episode of the High School DxD anime. It premiered on February 10, 2012.


New living arrangements have been made for Asia in the clubroom, who has been living with the Occult Research Club for some time now. Meanwhile, Rias decides to have Issei undergo basic training to improve his stamina and physical fitness. After finishing his training, Issei is surprised to learn that Asia has decided to move to the Hyoudou Residence in order to just stay together with him. The next day, Asia transfers to Issei's class too and manages to get along with her new classmates. After finishing the distribution of the pamphlets, Issei decides to try and get his own client, meeting Mil-tan, a bulky muscular man whose greatest wish is to be a Magic Girl. 

During his P.E. class, Issei goes to the sickroom, getting frustrated on the fact that he failed to get a contract again. He then wakes up surprised upon finding a naked Rias sleeping beside him. After waking up, Rias dresses up and decides to accompany Issei to his next client in order to make sure that he'll get a contract done this time. The request that Issei receives, involves meeting a foreigner girl named Susan that always wears Ō-yoroi due to her typical love for the Japanese culture, especially the Samurais and their Bushido Code. Susan then reveals that her request for the Devils is to help her in taking her notes back from the university and assist in her love confession. Using Issei's advice of writing a love letter, Susan manages to properly convey her feelings, resulting in her love interest, Horii, a man wearing a medieval Knight's armor, and her, becoming a couple successfully. Back at the Occult Research Club, as a victory celebration for his first contract, both Issei and Rias share an intimate moment, causing Akeno to note the subtle change in her master's behavior.
