The first volume of the High School DxD manga was released by Fujimi Shobo on June 9, 2011 under their Dragon Comics Age imprint. It covers the first part of the Red Dragon Emperor's Awakening arc.


Issei Hyoudou is a perverted second-year student who attends Kuoh Academy to make his own harem, but is unpopular at school. When an unlucky Issei is murdered by his first-ever girlfriend on his first-ever date, the hottest girl in school arrives to his rescue by the magical circle on a leaflet he took. Rias Gremory informs Issei that he’s been reincarnated as a demon and that he is to work - for her as a Devil. Upon becoming a devil, Issei is initiated into the Occult Research Club, a front for Rias Gremory's Peerage. Caught in the middle of an age-old war between the three factions of Angels, Fallen Angels and Devils, Issei soon discovers that being enslaved by a demonic beauty is a life-and-death struggle due to being ambushed by Fallen Angels in his duties.

Though Issei posseses the powerful Longinus Sacred Gear "Boosted Gear", he has a low rank and weak magical power to the point of being unable to magically teleport to answer summons. Issei gains his first contract with Mil-tan when he requests to be turned into a magical girl. With the mission a failure, a nun named Asia Argento falls over in front of him in the park. After escorting her back to the local church, Issei carries on trying to complete contracts until he gets summoned to an abandoned house and ambushed by stray exorcist Father Freed Sellzen. When Asia appears and defends him, Issei fights Freed to defend her. However, Freed has has the upper hand until the devils of the Occult Research Club arrive as reinforcements. With a squadron of Fallen Angels approaching, Issei is forced to leave without Asia and promises to rescue her.
