What is the story of High School DxD?

High School DxD follows the adventures of a perverted high school student named Issei Hyodo. He is also the protagonist and his dream in life is to become a Harem King. He is called for a date, his first in this lifetime, by a girl named Yuuma Amano, who kills him towards the end of their date. Issei, however, wakes up the next day and assumes that it was all just a bad dream. Much to his surprise, he finds himself back on the same playground that evening and is attacked by another fallen angel named Dohnaseek.
