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?

It ended. I really ended. After forcing me to laugh so hard every episode, it disappeared just like that. Well, I'm not going to talk about the emptiness in my life or how desperate and lonely i'am after watching the last episode, but instead, I'm going to give you all some insights on the anime by writing this review.
I'm going to start by the story first. To be honest, it's kinda' hard writing about the main idea of the story. Why? BECAUSE IT DIDN'T HAVE MUCH OF A STORY. Okay here it goes.
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 and frequently considered to be a norm, 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 bumps 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 (I really mean by force) 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. Sometimes he also acts like a good guy and the others will say "aren't you supposed to be a delinquent?".
Reluctant at first, he soon finds the club and it’s member to be exciting and interesting and also often defends it from the others who tries to destroy(disband) it. 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 (almost every time) revolves around Kenji, playing board games and throwing limitless funny punch lines at everyone around him until sometimes he literally 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. Behaviours 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. It seems that Animes such as these aren't 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’, well maybe because they're just a bunch of random people.
Voice actors did a great job in their voice acting. 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 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 and it effectively supports the comedy which is the main focus of the anime. If you’re hoping for character’s developement, you're looking in the wrong place, my friend. Character development in this anime is so small that it could be considered as none..... But you wouldn't even mind anyway :D.

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 which can be considered as a 'good'. Personally it's my favorite in this winter season. 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!

"So, I think we're going to start the king's game now.
this game has a number of sticks in which one is inscribed the king. The rest are commoners. The commoners should follow the king's command at all cost. But since there are only two players this time, we are going to go with a simple game where the one who draws the king will win.
...So why the hell are these two ready to kill each other?!?!?"
First of all, let me put the summary of this whole anime in one sentence.
WHY DID YOU HAVE TO EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEND!
...Then, before I actually begin, let me explain that because this is a comedy like nichijou where nothing makes sense but everything is funny, I'll grade this differently.
PS. Absolutely no spoilers, but some words may suggest indirect minor plot points.
I'm wrong? There isn't much of a story?
No, this is not that simple.
Creating a comedy requires more skills than one might think. Especially for a theme like D-frag, one needs to be very thoughtful. This is not just senseless laughter found in nichijou, or a laughter at the dumbness of baka to test. This gets a game as casual and simple as king's game or the war of thumbs and create something funny and interesting. Nobody wants to watch two men playing the game of thumbs, but in this, yes you do. The ability to make something boring funny is a grandiose skill that requires much attention and imagination.
Another criterion that I absolutely loved was the continual unfolding of funny behind stories and mysteries that just cracked me up. I cannot explain this without spoiling, so I will go on.
Story was a work of art. Many will disagree and say there was no much of anything for story, but this, like I said, need to be given a whole new method of grading.
Sure, the animation is not the best in the world, and we can't help but notice the rainbow colors of the hairs.
However, these are not necessary factors when making a comedy.
What D-frag wanted and needed was an animation where one could easily crack up, or be caught in adorableness, and this type of animation was its soul mate. Instead of hiring IG entertainment or Ufotable, the simple and "chibi" animation was what it really needed.
But this alone wouldn't get the anime 10, so I gave art a nine. A fluent movement in unnecessary scenes are also a factor to crack people up, but unfortunately D-frag didn't contain this element. For that I gave art a 9.
Starting from the seiyuus this time, in contrast to how I usually grade the sound. The sound is in three parts: BGM, OP/ED and voice over.
The voice actors are some of the greatest in the world. For Shibasaki Roka, who needed both the yandere-type voice and cute-type voice, there were not too many in the anime history who could do both but the jack-of-all-trades voice actor hanazawa kana. Roka's voice requirements overlapped well with Sengoku Nadeko of monogatari series, and there was no better candidate than Kana in this voice over. Then, as for our main-character delinquent, we have katsuyuki konishi, the prime voice actor of delinquents. In addition, for the voice actor of sakuragaoka, a girl-like boy who had to sound both like a boy and a girl, we had the voice actor of hayate, shiraishi ryoko. We have the woman who changed Japan towards cuteness, aki toyosaki, for the best girl, along with takao in the story, funabori. Not to mention of course, they all did their jobs admirably. Even the extras' voice acting was admirable. However, there were times when the voicing was a little awkward--especially when kazama played the straight-man role. To begin with kazama's voice actor is not aced in straight-man role. Also, the times when the voice actor shouted "ba-ka!" weirded me out a little bit. Still, kazama's voice actor did his job splendidly and the ba-ka was understandable for the genre of the anime, so I gave voice acting a 9.
As for the opening, I at least hated the song. However, as we learned from a certain song called "Platinum Disco" and the opening of "Haiyore Nyaruko-san", there are songs which deserves A+++ for the music quality and other songs which deserves A+++ for catchiness, and this opening is the latter. Still, the song could annoy some people off, so I gave this an 8.
The ending, on the other hand, was in between quality and catchiness. It was both easily remembered in the ear and sang well. Still, the song was not good enough to be given a 10, so I gave the ending a 9.
Lastly, the BGM's were done splendidly. They weren't cliche or repeated over and over. They were used thoroughly and well. Some songs inspired urgency and even awe and a BGM that does the right job deserves a 10.
So all in all, I gave the sound a high 8.
Don't you just love all characters?
We have all characters with their own appeals, especially Takao and Funabori, who are not in the main 5 characters but are more famous than the main 5's. I cut it off also because of that--the main characters are not given enough attention, especially Sakura. She, although being a part of the club, shows little significance in the whole anime. I also cut off points for the teacher characters that appeared at the last second.
BUT WHO THE HELL CARES ABOUT ALL THESE?
D-Frag certainly cannot be a masterpiece, considering each categories carefully.However, they can make people laugh like no other, and they don't need any of these categories to do so. The story? WHO CARES! The art? WHO CARES! The sound? WHO THE HELL CARES!!! The characters? WHO IN THE HELL CARES!!!!! D-Frag is simply fun. It does not bring up the nonsensical exaggerated comedy in Nichijou, or the eternal dumbness in baka to test. They are fun because they are. Even if the story is nonexistent, even if the art is premature, even if the sound is annoying, even if the characters aren't fully developed, D-Frag can turn the tables and create enjoyment out of it.
D-Frag is certainly, without doubt, the best anime of the spring/winter of 2014. There might not be stories to be awed at, or arts to be awed at, or sounds or awesome character developments to be awed at, but this definitely is an anime that you can be awed at.
It most definitely needs more attention. If you haven't watched it, you should immediately start watching.
Then, happy anime-ing and may the anime be with you. read more
"Just Finish Watching D-Frag"
Looking at the poster thinking that maybe this is just your another typical Comedy anime but No
after watching all 12 episode, I was stunned how Marvelous it is.....
This anime has no doll moments at all...Every episode is worth dying to see 'cause how great and enjoyable it is.
The only downfall is that there's only 12 episode they should do more maybe a hundred lol.
I don't know why they stop....maybe the budget or the ratings but who cares they should do more and can't w8 for
the next season...
D-frag has no main story at all... It's all about the characters goofing off..If you want to watch a feel good anime
try this one it won't let you down. D-frag will you make you laugh and it will make you feel that your in your teens again having a crush on someone it will make you feel in love lol... and after you finish all the episode you want to beg for more episode.... I do.
'Cause now a days it's so rare to find a good harem,comedy with a little bit of romance and school club.
The Characters are great,always having a good time, They always making fun of the main protagonist and also the characters are very wacky & crazy but likeable....
The Bottomline is this D-frag is a pure comedy as it's finest and don't take it too seriously,just have fun while watching it.
PS: I Recommend this anime only if your a fan of Romance,School Club,Harem & Pure Comedy (Kenji X Takao) read more
While searching for a comedy based anime, I stumbled across one with a strange title: D-frag. The premise seemed unappealing and boring, with a generic setting that didn't promise anything spectacular. Nevertheless, intrigued by the title of it, I began watching it, and I can say I was pleasantly surprised. D-frag is comedy/harem anime, though it is not your typical ecchi/comedy anime out there. So what makes it hilarious? I will try to explain it below.
First of all the comedy is based on the manzai, where a "Tsukommi" (straight man) retorts the actions of the "Boke" (funny man) who creates a funny situation. This is quite frequent in japanese comedy shows, and being a personal fan of this type of comedy, naturally appealed to me. However, if this type of comedy doesn't appeal to you, then this may be not suitable for you.
D-frag focuses on the delinquent Kazama Kenji, who with the help of his gang, the "Kazama" gang, intends to take over his school. This doesn't go as intended and in the process he is forced to join the game creator club (temp), composed of the most strange girls. From here on audiences observe how Kazama deals with the bizarre club members, leading to absurd and hilarious situations. These range from typical everyday life situations, to the same events a lot school comedies have to offer, such as territorial fights or festival games, naturally taken to the extreme absurdness.
D-frag has little story to offer, besides the actions of the game creator club (temp). The story is split in mini arcs, each with enough comedy to make you laugh, making it perfect for this type of anime. It also tagged with the romance and harem category, though the harem aspect is not the main focus of this show, neither is the romance. Moreover, it is used to enhance the comedy.
Being a comedy based anime, D-frag has a lot of characters to offer, each with its own charm. As it is a harem too, there are a lot of female characters but these are not detrimental to the anime; which is to say, it doesn't exhibit an excessive focus on the females. Personally speaking, the protagonist Kazama was of the most interesting character as it was not your typical main protagonist. He doesn't take romantic interest in the female lead characters, neither does he always accomplish his goals, in fact he is often helped by someone, which is bonus.
Other character that stood out, and is my personal favourite, was the teacher Sean Conne Conne, who clearly represents the actor Sean Connery. His character, moral values and actions are very refreshing to the anime, besides enhancing significantly the awe factor of this character. Naturally, character development is nihil in this anime, in addition to the fleshing out of the characters.
The secondary characters also play an import role D-frag: these have all certain personalities that makes it easy to distinguish from the others. While the protagonists create absurd and hilarious situations, these are often enhanced and supported by the actions and comments/retorts of the secondary characters, and vice versa. There are also different factions present, each with their characteristic attribute, for example, the baldies or music bands. The good thing is that these are all simple and not such impressive characters, they're in fact simple people even though the anime portrays them as "badass" characters.
~Animation and sound~
The animation quality of D-Frag is nothing outstanding, though well executed, what is to be expected from a modern show. The art style of D-frag was toned down a bit from the manga, which was at first rather lackluster, and is a welcoming change. Character designs are varied, yet are nothing remarkable. The facial expressions were well done, which was of importance for the comedy gags, as without them it would have been worse.
The soundtrack used in D-Frag was nothing outstanding and it could get repetitive at times, yet there were some compositions that fared well with the different sketches and situations it was trying to portray to the audience. The voice actors performed their roles well, fitting with their character's personalities, as in addition enhancing the comedic element of the anime.
I personally enjoyed D-frag a lot; It made me laugh throughout the whole duration with hilarious and absurd situations, as well as the wide assortment of characters. There were naturally some gags that got old or were predictable, besides of having no story direction whatsoever: this was nevertheless a small drawback. So if you are interested in watching a comedy anime with an enjoyable harem, or just are searching for something to watch, D-frag may be something for you. Just don't expect any deep characters or story.
Thank you for reading. 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 gag comedies about guy dragged into wierd club full of weird people (mainly females) and most of them developing a crush on him. MC is not amused with the club at first but later starts to like it.
Not much of a storyline that is made up of tales of a club full of weird members and even weirder acts. If you like one, you'll like the other.
Both have a very similiar comedy style and theme. A boy is (forced) to join a club with all girls. In both shows the clubs tend to just have fun. In both they often tease the guy or have him as the butt of the joke. They only real difference is while GJ-Bu is certainly over the top D-Frag! is on it's own level. But if you liked one ypu will like the other.
They are quite similar to each other 'cause they both are about a boy who is essentially nice and is forced to join a club with members who are kinda strange.
Similarities are covered in most of the recommendation descriptions already but I would just like to add that liking one series won't really mean you'll like the other.
GJ-bu focuses more on kawaii girls <3 and D-Frag! is pure comedy. But everybody loves kawaii girls and comedy, so yeah, you'll still like one if you liked the other.
(What the fuck am I even trying to say :l)
-Both male MCs have to deal with girls form the same club
-Both shows are school life and comedies centred
-Both shows involve school club
-In both shows the girls are showing interest over him
Are you looking for a quick round of comedy? D-Frag! and GJ-bu are two shows that will not disappoint. Both being slice-of-life anime, D-Frag! and GJ-bu try to make humorous situations out of the everyday adventures of their respective clubs. Furthermore, the club setups in both shows are very similar too, as there are one male main character and multiple female main characters. Finally, both shows also have some moe-style art to them too.
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.
Both are comedies with signs of romance.
Both have a "deliquent-like" protagonist. Really.
The funny thing is that in Boku wa Tomodachi the protagonist has the atmosphere and looks of one, and in D-Frag he wants to look like one, but nobody takes him for one.
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.
both have :
a mc that gets mistaken for a delinquent
a group of elite's girls
a imouto with a brother complex
a big boob girl who tries to be nice to the mc litlle sister but just ends up scaring her
in both anime's the mc gets forced to join a club they never heard of
and in both anime's they must do something to protect their club
Both has a protagonist that was forced to join a certain club full of interesting club members and both are really numb when it comes to love.
Both animes are school comedy where the protagonists are seen as delinquents and due to this end up getting in several cases and quite interesting moments. Apart from that both end up entering school clubs not so normal, it also has very similar characters.
Although the plot is different, the setting is same, i.e. school. The character designs are also somewhat similar. The biggest similarity is the comedy style; I got a Bakatest feeling from D-Frag. There are great characters, and plus, it's a fun series. If you watch one, high chances are that you will love the other.
Just another school time with idiotic people who does idiotic activities, they both have similar jokes to make you laugh hard enough.
Well, both are higschool animes, and have almost the same comedy.
In both animes, the main character is an "baka" (idiot/stupid), and has other friends with different personalities.
In my opinion, they are the best animes that I watched, but both need more episodes =(
Fast-paced and witty, both series have characters who never fail to amuse. If you're looking for a short series with cheap humor, make sure you take some time to watch both.
This one is just hilarious to me. But mostly because of the openings and endings of these anime. Even though they also sound cheesy.
Both shows have a lot of funny boke and tsukkomi humor, with the male lead being the tsukkomi.
In both of these awesome anime, the whole point is to have a good time. If you love laughing, you will love both of these. There are tons of jokes, and every episode of both anime made me laugh so many times. If you liked one, you will definitely like the other.
Both are comedies where main character is dragged into party full of wierd female characters and sometimes it seems like he is the only one sane.
Both include a guy being forced to joining a club of all girls.
Both don't really have a plot, and are non stop comedy.
Both have a very unique set of characters.
Both will keep you laughing on a consistent basis (granted the jokes are different in taste in each one)
These are both comedies that feature a cast of zany female characters that inflict themselves onto the male straightman. Both these shows are comedies first and the what plot there is comes second. Both shows feature tons of random humor that leaves the straightman as an island of sanity in an otherwise insane world.
Seitokai is much more focused on the perverted humor and a lot of the comedy is found in the fast paced dialogue. The humor in D-Frag is more varried with a lot of sight gags and physical humor to go alone with the verbal jokes.
If you're in the mood for some crazy humor then these are both good series to pick up.
Though they do have quite a few differences, I still think that they have similar humor, with a male Protagonist that gets thrown into many odd situations due to the quirky female cast around them. If you like one of them, you're likely to enjoy the other too ^.^
Both of these shows feature a male character through no fault of his own is surrounded by a bunch of females and are thrown into random situations that usually, if not always, end in hilarity. 2 or more girls like the main protagonist.
Personally, I find both of them hilarious and fun to watch.
Cast and comedy type are almost identical. In D-Frag, there is one, main male MC surrounded by girls, but this MC has more girls in his harem. Both shows are hilarious and I would definitely recommend watching both.
I find this two series similar because they both are focused in comedy, although in Noucome there is also a strong part in the romance between the male protagonist and the girls but both series stand out for their funny parts and bizarre outcomes that make them refreshing and enjoyable to watch.
They both have unique characters and make good use of ther qualities or misfortune to deliver good stories and really good laughs.
Weird, abnormal, pretty girls, who have some fantasy images in their minds, and play it just for fun. It follows the main male character who was caught up in this situation where he was either experience one before, or was forced to join their club. Though, as time passes on, he join their antics and bond with the other club members.
Chuunibyou, follows a normal boy who have experience these "delusions" before and was joined by a female character. Some fantasy action scenes, and romance. D-Frag follows a delinquent boy, who was abducted and joined the club.
The worlds of these shows consists of so much imagination. It's beautiful. Why live life normal and plain when you could spice it up? Life is something that can be made special and exciting, and that's what these shows do perfectly.
An unwilling MC pulled into the world of a petite and strange girl with a group of equally weird friends. They're both very comical and don't require much thinking. Just sit back and enjoy the ride.
In both shows main character is trying to be normal, but he is stuck with bunch of weird girl. Both animes are really funny. Chu2byou is more romance based, while d-frag is full of random geeky and nerdy jokes, so d-frag is better in my opinion.
