SynopsisKazama Kenji likes to believe he is something of a delinquent. Moreover, others seem to like to agree that he is. Of course, Kenji's gang finds their way to a group of four not-so-normal girls—Chitose, Sakura, Minami and Roka—and all at once, whatever reputation he may have is nothing compared to the outrageous behavior of the girls. Shanghaied into joining their club, what will happen to his everyday life from that point on?

Characters & Voice Actors
Notice : This review is based on the 9 episodes that has already been aired. Even though it is believed, or probably is inaccurate, i still wrote this review for my personal reasons. Full review will be available after it finishes airing.
High school country delinquent, Kazama Kenji thinks that he got what it takes to be the strongest and the sole ruler of Fujou High. Kenji, despite of having no special traits whatsoever, is the leader of the infamous “Kazama Gang”. Together with his two long-time friends who are also in the gang, it seems that nothing could possibly go wrong. That is until one day, the gang jumps into a Game Development Club consisting of four ‘unique’, or to be frank, strange -elemental freak- girls with their overly brute and outrageous behaviors. Kenji could probably be able to say goodbye to his hopes and dreams by the moment he was forced to joined the club.
Despite of what i wrote above, this anime isn’t about any of those ‘ruling the school’ thing. This is the story of a boy who believes that he, himself is an ‘infamous’ delinquent at Fujou High. Instead of acting like one, he spends his days of high school slacking off and playing meaningless games in the club that he was forced to joined. Reluctant at first, he soon finds the club and it’s member to be exciting and interesting. Well maybe not, but one thing for sure is that Kenji isn’t living a normal high school life.
D-Frag is an example of an anime that actually has no meaningful plot at all. It mainly(every time) revolves around Kenji, playing board games and throwing limitless funny punch lines at everyone around him until sometimes he litterally ran out of breath. Yeah, i think that’s all i can say about the story, nothing more. But that’s not the point. What makes this anime to be considered a very entertaining one is that such plot contains such humorous jokes that surely hit the mark every time and aren’t predictable. Behaviors that you don’t see every day will make you burst into tears of happiness.
The artwork in this anime is not what you can say as a masterpiece, not even close. It’s plain, simple but still very comfortable to see. Animes such as these doesn’t seem to be in a need of great and extraordinary art. Character’s design are very enjoyable and hilarious to see. Ranging from cute to roguish, bald to long-haired... i don’t really know how to describe in words coz i find that some are ‘indescribable’.
Voice actors did a great job in their voice acting. Not only they fit their roles, they also do it passionately. They make a great impression on how the characters are. What really caught my attention is definitely Kenji’s punchlines, so random yet so funny to hear. Not only the voice acting, the soundtracks fits the anime perfectly too. The Opening is very joyful, cheerful, energetic, and funny. It really makes the mood before watching the anime. The Ending is also a pleasure to hear and leaves a great desire to watch the next episode. Both the OP and ED is sang by the seiyuus and that makes it even more interesting to hear.
Characters is what to be called ‘unique’ or maybe simply random. None of the characters have a normal personality as that of a high schoolers. It effectively support the comedy which is the main focus of the anime. If you’re hoping for character’s developement, you can still go back now while there is still time. Character development in this anime is so small that it could be considered as none, well for now, but i really wouldn’t suggest you to raise your expectations to high on it.

D-Fragments or D-Frag! or ディーふらぐ! is a very funny and enjoyable comedy-anime. It is indeed the best example of a comedy anime well made. Personally it's my favorite of the 2014. If you think you have a reasonable sense of humor and is looking for an anime that could make you laugh until you lose your common sense, without no doubt i recommend you this anime!
-Want to give a feedback? Comment in my profile and i'll be sure check on it and use it for further updates-
I always look at the genre of an anime before watching it, and D-Frag! has Comedy, School, Seinen, maybe it's good. But after looking the cover, I thought "Why there're 5 girls with 1 guy in that cover? Would it become a harem?" But I was wrong, it has no harem stuff at all, and it's very nice.
And I'll do this review with the consider of 5 episodes + 15 chapters of the manga I've readed. (Obviously, I'll update this review after the completion of the series)
D-Frag!, a story that involves a leader of a famous delinquent gang named "The Kazama Gang", but somehow nobody even knows him. And even he is a delinquent douche, he still helping someone to extinguish fire. And at the end, he forced to join a weird club named "Game Production Club" with many weirdos on it.
From the manga (chap special 14,5) at the end of the chapter, Tomoya-sensei writes "This extra doesn't relate to the main story (Is there something called 'story' in this manga?)" and yet i agree with him.
For the plot itself, I think it's a cliche plot. A punk forced to join a club, ah it's many animes which use that.
Nowadays, the're many animes with great art, and D-Frag! isn't one of it. To be honest, the art of D-Frag! is just an average for me. But, for a comedy anime, it just really suit with the gag. And I deserved it 8 to it's chibi characters style.
The seiyuus do their role so good. Especially for Roka and Kazama. Katsuyuki Konishi is great when acting his tsukkomi. and there's HanaKana too! It's just perfect.
And the ED that performed by 3 of the seiyuus, it's great too.
All of the characters has their unique personality theirselves. A tsundere, a masochist, an "open hearted" delinquent, even elemental lords! (water, earth, lightning, and "darkness" fire). It just....wow...And that evil head of student council character, it just rare to see the "real" leader of the school is the head of the student council.
It's the second anime that can make me laugh soooo hard in every episodes (the first one is SKET Dance). So, there's no lack for the enjoyment. Perfect score for it.
Well what can I say? It's so good for the enjoyment, even the other aspects were not too perfect. But I recommend it for you all to watch this and I can say, this anime is worth to watch anime of the season. read more
Okay, too many similarities. Both are school-life-centered comedies with a plot involving a laid-back club and it's awesome members. I absolutely love both. Watch one, be ready to love the other ;)
Both have the same set of weird girls and a guy who has to deal with them. One anime focuses solely on the club, while the other is spread evenly between school, guy's friends, and other cast members. The girls are three times weirder than the girls from the other anime.
Looking for a series involving a club with cute girls doing fun activities? A school setting where there is fun, drama, and comedy going around for everyone? Or just some slice of life experience with a lighthearted background? GJ-bu and D-Frag will definitely be the answer to those questions.
There might be only one main male character in both series' clubs but they learn to adjust and get along with others. At the same time, they get involved with the clubs' special activities that they have mixed reactions to.
Expect engaging comedy with an appreciation for fun and laughter.
The same harem genre about a boy and a group of poco locas chicas in one obnoxious club, except the chicas in the new anime are 2X mucho locas than the chicas from the old anime.
"How would it feel like when you are being abducted by cute girls and forced you to join their club? Satisfying or weird?" In the story a main male character was suddenly capture by cute girls and forced him to join the club. Though, he first thinks it is weird, but instead joins them for reasons. It follows the daily lives of the characters main club activities.
D-Frag starts off with a delinquent character who was forced to join the club with weird abnormal girls. GJ-bu starts off with a normal male character with normal club activities.
Both MCs are forced to join a club with weird girls. The art is similar and the character types are reminiscent of each other. I wanted to find an anime like Gj-bu while I waited for the OVA to come out later on this year, and I think I found one quite similar.
In both anime, the female characters have an interest in the male MC, but are too shy. (I am judging this off the manga for D-Frag since the anime just started airing), and the male characters in both don't seem to have a specific girl they are interested in, but instead, switch around depending on what the girl is doing.
The male character from D-Frag is known in the school as a school delinquent but in truth, he has a really pure heart and doesn't wish to hurt anyone. Both MCs have pure hearts and don't act perverted even though they are in the only boys in there school club "harem."
The buchou in both anime are petite and act quite tsundere. The club president in D-Frag doesn't act like the tsundere stereotype as much though.
Both have tall, purple-haired females that are intelligent and have soothing voices.
Both are school-comedies where the main male character is dragged into a not-so-ordinary club. Also, I find Chitose sorta like Yozora with her slightly violent personality, Kenji a bit like Kodaka and Takao to be like Sena (she is wayyy better than her though) Also Kenji acts like a delinquent, same as Kodaka. Both are funny and lovable.
A main character becomes part of an unusual club with members that seems to all have their own interests at hand. The club itself also gets into odd events and often causes trouble for the main character.
Regardless, both series are comedy series with humorous dialogues, character interactions, and gags that plays around the school setting and concepts. They both also involve characters that wants the main protagonist to join their club for personal reasons.
Some of the moments in each episode may feel a bit random but are used as a way to present comedy.
The MC are school-rumored delinquent. But the truth is that they have a kind heart, and end up being forced to join a club by the main heroine. The art is kinda similar and from my opinion D-Frag! jokes are funnier than Haganai jokes.
A delinquent boy who is joined by beautiful girls in a social club activities... makes it awkward for him to follow their motivation. The romantic comedy focuses the main male character interacting with the members of the club who are a majority population of girls. It can be awkward, relationships, funny, or random at times, but soon he will grown into the club and have fun.
Haganai focus on the "Neighbors Club" which they focus on making new friends and try to socialize each other. D-Frag follows a boy who is surrounded by awkward girls with a club that is a "Fantasy Imaginary" gaming club.
