Tips to Create the Best Highschool DxD Fanfiction
Highschool DxD fanfiction has steadily been gaining popularity, and I can’t blame the fanfic writers. The creators of the anime produced the best storyline and the most irresistible characters that some people just can’t help but imagine their own twists on the series.
If you’re trying to visualize your own take on its story, I know how difficult it can be sometimes, especially if you’re not good at drawing. Luckily for you, that’s now possible with the help of an AI tool. Let me show you.
The Highschool DxD manga and anime revolves around Issei Hyoudou, a high school student who was killed after going on a first date. He was saved by a devil named Rias Gremory, but in the process, Rias had to reincarnate him into a devil as well.
Before we dive deeper into Highschool DxD fanfiction, we must determine what fanfiction means in the first place. A fanfiction, from the words “fan” and “fiction,” is a fictional story written by a fan or follower, based on the characters of a particular anime, movie, or series.
One excellent example of this is the book-turned-movie, Fifty Shades of Grey. It started out as a fanfic story based on Twilight under the title Master of the Universe.
There are five major types of Highschool DxD fanfiction and just fanfics in general. Here’s a brief introduction to each of them.
- Canon Fics – original story remains unchanged (e.g., retelling the story from another character’s perspective)
- Crossover Fics – “crossing over” of two worlds or universes (e.g., Highschool DxD and My Hero Academia)
- Original Characters – addition of a new character to the original storyline
- Alternate Universe – moving the characters of the story to another world or universe (e.g., Highschool DxD characters in Jujutsu Kaisen universe)
- Slash Fiction – producing a romantic storyline based on two characters in the anime, even though they’re not romantically involved in the original story
Writing and reading fanfiction is a popular avenue for avid fans of an anime series to reimagine a world they’re already in love with. It’s an opportunity to give the anime a different storyline that’s more aligned with what they want it to be.
So, if you’re ready to create your very own Highschool DxD fanfiction, let me provide you with several tips on how to enhance your story.
Here are some quick writing tips to get you started.
- Choose a Focal Point
As I mentioned above, there are several types of fanfics. Choose the main theme of your Highschool DxD fanfiction, whether that be romance, adventure, or character development. This will help anchor your story to your goal.
- Plot Planning
One of the quickest ways to lose a reader is to offer them a very confusing storyline riddled with plotholes. To avoid this, make sure that you outline the key points of the story. This keeps the structure of your Highschool DxD manga fanfiction, making it easier for your readers to follow.
Research is an integral part of writing any type of fanfiction. Continue watching the anime so you can stay true to the Highschool DxD characters. Make sure that you also read lores about the anime’s background so your story remains accurate.
The most important publishing tip I can give you when writing a Highschool DxD fanfiction or any type of fanfic for that matter is to give credit to the original creator. Aside from that, here are some other tips to keep in mind.
- Choose a Platform
There are several platforms that should help you release your fanfic to the public, it all depends on your needs and your target audience. Some of the most popular platforms include Wattpad, FanFiction.net, and AO3 or Archive Of Our Own.
- Maintain Reader Engagement
Your readers are what will drive your story to the spotlight. Make sure that you keep them engaged by consistently publishing new content and replying to their comments and private messages.
Finally, you want to make sure your readers (and yourself) get to enjoy your Highschool DxD fanfiction. How? Through visualization! Whether you’re writing a Highschool DxD hentai spinoff or a more adventure-focused story, stunning visuals are vital to your content.
Don’t worry. You don’t need to have superb animation skills to do this. With the help of an AI generator, you only need words!
Deepswap AI, for instance, lets you generate anime art images just by entering text prompts on its generator.
You can even create Highschool DxD nude art images with this tool.
The platform even allows you to edit the generated image if you want to include certain elements in the photo. Here’s the Koneko Toujou I generated using this tool.

Let’s say, for example, you want to visualize the scene above from Highschool DxD fanfic Photo [Dxd] (GL).
- Enter Text Prompt
First, imagine how you want the final image to look like. Then, think of the elements you see in the image in your head before entering them into the text box. You want to be as descriptive as possible to help the AI generate an accurate image.
- Choose Art Style and Aspect Ratio
Once you’ve entered the text prompt, choose “Anime Girl” for the art style. The aspect ratio will depend on the structure of your fanfic, but you can choose between 2:3, 3:2, and 1:1.
Finally, click the “Generate” button at the bottom of the page. You can then download the final image and embed it to your Highschool DxD fanfiction.
