However, the Director of the show has already decided what to put in the sequel. Accordingly, he is going to take a small part of the story from the light novels and adapt it to the anime. There is already enough material in the light novels, which can be easily adapted into the anime version of the series for season 5. Likewise, the story will still follow the manga series adaptation.
Well. High School DxD season 5 will continue on the Hero Oppai Dragon Arc. The arc started in the fourth season and included in the 9th and 10th volume of the manga series. Since the story is close to the manga adaptation, it safe to say that it will follow volume 11 and 12.
The story arc takes place during the Middle-Class Promotion exam. While Issei, Akeno and Kiba will prepare for the test, Koneko will begin to act suspiciously. This is because Koneko witnessed Issei and Ria’s closeness. The story takes an exciting turn when Azazel brings Ophis and the leader of Khaos Brigade to the Hyoudou Residence.
This could be a solution to the crisis of Season 3 where the author tried to put three light novels into 12 episodes in one season, and it failed miserably. Also, Season 3 of the anime seems out of topic from the source material, and fans got disappointed.
Ichie, the author of the series, finished the 12th volume of the series in 2012. If we look up light novels, there are still more materials for more seasons after the release of the fifth season.
