In just a month or so, High School DxD season 4 will be released and fans can’t wait for the comeback of the anime.Our good guy Issei Hyodo and the others will soon begin another big adventure. The third season was infamous for being a little askew with the light novels and anime-only scenes. Because the third season was considered as somewhat a “failure” by fans, the next season titled “High School DxD Hero” is expected to right the wrongs of the previous season.

The season of High School DxD is slated to premiere this April 10 and will be aired on AT-X. And to further start the hype-train engine, a new key visual was released for the fans. Here, Issei and the gang is seen with kinda new animation style and that is because of the change of the animation studio.

The last three seasons of the series was produced by TNK, which also produced anime other anime such as Ikkitousen: Xtreme Xecutor and School Days: Magical Heart Kokoro-chan. The next season will be produced by animation studio Passione, which produced anime such as Citrus and Rail Wars! You can say the change of animation from the new key visual above and the trailer screenshots below.

Yuki Kaji will reprise his role as Issei Hyoudou. Yoko Hikasa and Azumi Asakura will reprise their roles as Rias Gremory and Asia Argento respectively. Shizuka It and Ayana Taketatsu will also voice out Akeno Himejima and Koneko Toujou again. Issei’s harem will continue to be based on the light novels. There is news which states that Issei is going to have some help coming from a very unlikely source. It is not yet known how unlikely that source might be. But with Loki traveling to past ensure his victory, Issei must welcome all help available.
