Kazama is a wannabe delinquent on a mission to rule the school, but a run-in with the cray cray cuties of the Game Creation Club derails his plan for power. Instead of conquering Fujou Academy with his fists, Kazama is plunged into a hilariously-twisted world where pain is the name of the game. Ruled by the adorable underground boss Roka, the Game Creation Club is comprised of pretty psychopaths who enjoy snacking, setting things on fire, burying adversaries up to their necks, and tasing the ↑↓←→ out of anyone who stands in their way! As Roka vies for ultimate control of the school club scene, Kazama scrambles to maintain his sanity and survive the whacked out games these girls play. Buckle up, anime fans! Because no one escapes the Game Creation Club.

- Comments: This is a silly comedy with plenty of outrageous situations. The fan-service may be on the lower-end when compared with other animes, but if you don't mind it, the anime will still be enjoyable. Though, this is great for those that like comedy in general, however, if you prefer something more thought-provoking, this might not be for you. If you enjoy pranks and the like, then this might be a comedy to consider.
- Analysis: This depicts plenty of dialogue and interactions. This may infer to the fact that relationships, however significant or not, are an undeniable part of life. That is, it is inseperable just as the contrasting harmony of light and darkness: Two opposites that cannot be separated. Just like life and death.
As the viewer was probably aware, especially when considering the characters of this anime, everybody (doesn't matter who) has issues. These girls in particular are dangerous in their unique ways. But as many people will learn, a true friend accepts another person for who they are. So it's all good, since our protagonist displays adaptability. Everyone's got their strengths and weaknesses, after all.
- Features: English and Japanese audio with English subtitles. Includes 12 episodes on 2 Blu-rays and 12 on 2 DVDs for a total of 4 discs. Approximate run-time of 5 hours and is rated TV-14 for fan-service and suggestive scenes.
- Conclusion: A whacky comedy with an overall light-hearted tone. Great for anime viewers that enjoy silly, over-the-top situations and cute girls. Though this isn't for those with dry-humor, it is still appealing for those that want an anime to have some laughs with. This anime also portrays that females can be a source that shortens the life-span of men.

D-Frag! follows the exploits of one Kenji Kazama, a high school student and leader of a small gang of wannabe delinquents. While Kenji tries to look tough on the surface, he's really a decent guy underneath it all. Shortly after the school semester begins, Kenji finds himself forced into joining the "Game Creation Club", a club of three adorable yet insane girls who are willing to resort to torture to get him to join (they need four members to stay a club). Kenji begrudgingly joins this very peculiar outfit and soon finds himself entangled in all manner of odd situations.
The Game Creation Club tries to invent new games (board games, for example) that they then show off at school functions, but that's really only part of the story. It turns out, the Game Creation Club that Kenji is forced to join started as an offshoot of the first GCC (they design video games). A lot of conflict and internal strife ensues as Kenji finds himself embroiled in grudge matches and competitions that often make no sense whatsoever. Therein lies the charm of D-Frag!; it doesn't take itself very seriously.
Each story arc finds Kenji caught up in the insanity of both the old and the new Game Creation Clubs as well as rival school gangs; Kenji's basically our straight man who can't catch a break no matter how hard he tries. That is exactly why I love this show; nothing ever seems to make sense and Kenji doesn't mind pointing that out. Most of the characters we meet are quirky and odd in all number of ways, from a narcoleptic teacher to the masochistic vice president of the school, there's no shortage of lovable weirdos to be found here. What makes the show so fun to watch is seeing all of these characters interact and cause problems for each other. There isn't all that much in the way of character development because, quite frankly, there's no need for it; the plot's never particularly serious and neither are our main characters.
Visually, the show is quite pleasant to look at. Expressive characters that exhibit fluid animation as well as bright colors that leap off the screen when things get chaotic; lots of eye candy to be sure. An anime can only ever be as good as its animation, and D-Frag! won't let you down in that department.
The one disappointment I have with this show is that it's kind of short. It's only 12 episodes long and there doesn't seem to be a sequel coming anytime soon. But then, that could also serve as a compliment of kinds; I want more of a good thing.
To sum it up, D-Frag! is one of those shows like FLCL that is, first and foremost, there to entertain you through over-the-top characters and storylines and crazy set-piece moments. It's nothing thought-provoking or philosophical and it's never particularly deep or insightful beyond the occasional lesson on the importance of friendship. D-Frag! is the kind of show you can turn off the more serious parts of your psyche for, because this a crazy show that just wants to get you to smile. It's pretty to look at and fun to experience and that's high praise for the kind of show this is. Buy it and enjoy it, it's just that simple.
