There isn’t a formal plot synopsis for Season 5 of High School DxD. However, according to The Cinemaholic, the anime series generally follows the same plot like the series of light novels. For example, season 4 was based on the volumes 9 and 10 of Light novels. The previous season was a tad more intense in the action as Issei faced off against Sairong. It also saw Issei making use of The Cardinal Crimson Promotion, which is a unique and massive power-up to the Scale Mail. The fourth season also offered some much-anticipated romantic moments for fans, when Issei as well as Rias finally had the first time they kissed. In the end, season 4 had a lot to offer and yet it also managed to be able to wrap it around.
What’s expected to be at the heart of season 5 will be the adaptation of volumes eleven and twelve of the novel light series. For Issei it means tests. Issei must contend in the Middle Class Promotion Test. This test is in conjunction with the rankings that is used to indicate a person’s strengths and puts Issei slightly above the low-class level If he is able to pass. Alongside the examinations, Issei will also have to think about Koneko who has realized how close Issei is in the past with Rias and isn’t happy about the relationship.
It seems like the fifth season will have Issei and the rest of the crew very engaged when it debut.
