Going Sunbathing is the first Short Special of the High School DxD anime. It was released with the first DVD/Blu-ray volume on March 21, 2012.
The Occult Research Club prepares to go on a vacation to the beach, but Issei gets off to a bad start when he walks in on the girls while they are changing. After a quick beating, they teleport to the beach via magic circle. After playing in the water for a bit, Rias asks Issei to put suntan lotion on her. Just as Issei was about to comply, the bottle of lotion slipped, causing some slippery mayhem which quickly escalated when Asia tried to get involved.
The special ends with Issei buried up to his head in the sand as Koneko prepares to smash his head like a watermelon. Issei retorts that this was too extreme, only to receive words of reassurance from Asia that she will heal him afterwards.
