High School DxD is a supernatural action anime series based on the light novels written by Ichiei Ishibumi and illustrated by Miyama-Zero, published by Fujimi Shobo. The story centers on Issei Hyoudou, a perverted high school student who is nearly killed by his first date, who is revealed to be a Fallen Angel. He is soon saved by Rias Gremory, a crimson-haired beauty who reveals herself as a Devil of the Gremory Family, and finds out that he himself has been reborn as a Devil made to serve her. The story focuses on the ongoing battle between the Fallen Angels, Angels, and Devils, and Issei's ongoing relationship with Rias. The first season covers the Red Dragon Emperor's Awakening arc of the light novels.

The anime was produced by animation studio TNK under the directorship of Tetsuya Yanagisawa with the script written by Takao Yoshioka, music by Ryosuke Nakikashi, characters by Junji Goto, and produced by Hisato Usui, Jun Hatano, Shigeru Saito, Shinsaku Tanaka, Takuro Hatakeyama, and Tetsuya Tsuchihashi, respectively. Season 1 aired on AT-X from January 6, 2012 to March 23, 2012, with subsequent broadcast runs on TV Kanagawa, Chiba TV, TV Aichi, Sun Television, Tokyo MX, and BS11. AT-X airings of the season were uncensored, while the airings on TV Kanagawa (which began on January 11, 2012) and other networks were heavily censored.
