The babes and boys of the Occult Research Club are Back! Lovable loser (and bust buff) Issei and his clan of bewitching beauties return for a new season of supernatural tussles and sexy shenanigans—featuring old friends and new enemies! Now that all the girls live in Issei’s home, life seems like nothing but fun and scantily-clad lounging…for now! Join Rias, Akeno, Koneko, Asia, Xenovia, Gasper, and everyone’s favorite Harem King Issei as they fight, fumble, and fondle their way through their demonic high school lives.
Season 3 of High School DxD continues its feeble attempt at an interesting overarching story line. To be fair, this season did the best job of actually having you care about that story. However, with so many different mythologies added to the mix it was hard to keep up. The series is first and foremost a fan service series. It’s main character Issei continues to be a grade A pervert. However Issei does finally have some redeeming moments in the third season.
Where the series improves in the third season is when Issei actually starts to gain some power and sense of duty and not just a sense of boobs. It was really interesting to see the Norse and Greek mythologies and gods mixed into the story. As I said, it was hard to keep up though. Some nice non-fanservice levity was also great to see. Whether it was Gasper’s continued growth out of his shell or learning more about Koneko’s past, more about someone other than Rias and Issei was a plus.
One of the more interesting things about the series is the musical choices. A lot of classical music in the middle of fight scenes or closely personal scenes. It was an odd choice but it worked well with the series. If you can go into the series knowing its pure fan service first, you won’t be disappointed. Plus you will get some interesting mythology story lines too.
