Kazama thinks he has what it takes to take over his high school with his gang, even if it is just his two friends in it. However, when his gang has a run in with the four unique girls of the Game Development Club, he is shanghaied in as a member himself.
At a glance, D-Frag presents itself as another “club full of weirdoes doing nothing” show. However, what managed to elevate it to greatness is its superb comedy. Yet, even that couldn’t save it from being overshadowed during its debut. If you love D-Frag’s comedy and characters, then check out these other anime recommendations.
For Fans of Weird Girls and How to Deal With Them
Kodaka Hasegawa is anything but a delinquent. However, because of his blonde hair and bad boy face, he has been labeled as such. When classmates shiver in your presence, it makes it difficult to make friends. Yet, when Kodaka meets Yozora, a girl that is perhaps a bigger outcast than him, the pair start the Neighbors’ Club. In the Neighbors’ Club, those without any friends are invited to join, but not all personalities may mesh well.
Both series follow a club and the singular male member that becomes entwined in it. In these clubs, the girls are kind of misfits, or at very least distinctly strange, so as to stand out from one another. While D-Frag decides to focus more on comedy, Haganai decides to focus on character growth with some comedy along the way.
Love, Chunibyou, and Other Delusions
Everyone has that stage in their life where they think themselves special, different from mere humans. In middle school, Yuuta Togashi thought himself the Dark Flame Master, but upon entering high school, he has grown out of it. Unfortunately, after a chance meeting with Rikka Takanashi, a girl believing to have a God in her eye, attaches herself to him and brings that Chunibyo past back out.
It is a tale as old as time. Normal boy meets very, very strange girl that somehow leads to him eventually being surrounded by strange girls. Both shows also end up with him being dragged into a club made up by these strange girls, but they never really do anything in the club anyway. Like D-Frag, easily the best thing about Chunibyou is the comedy. Unlike D-Frag, the comedy in Chunibyou comes with a big dose of cringe.
Kanade Amakusa’s high school life should have been normal. Instead, he is cursed with Absolute Choice. This curse means that every so often, he will be forced to make a choice, unfortunately, both choices are often completely terrible and completely public.
Both shows are not so much about any plot or even character development. Both D-Frag and Noucome are all exclusively about the laughs and getting them through any means possible. If you really need a good laugh, both shows will be able to get you there.
For Fans of Clubs That Do Nothing
Through random circumstance, Shinomiya Kyouya is forced to become a member of the obscure and rarely acknowledge GJ Club. Within, he is surrounded by girls, but what is the point of this club?
Obviously, GJ Club and D-Frag have almost the exact same plots that result in the same circumstances in the show. Furthermore, the characters present in both clubs share a lot of the same tropes. Really the only difference is in the art, since GJ Club is oriented more towards the moe style.
Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches
Ryuu Yamada used to be a thug, but he wanted to change his reputation in high school. He went to a school where no one knew him, but by second year he was so bored that he became a slacker again. One day while on his way to the office, he trips and accidentally kisses a beautiful honor student. In a flash, they switch bodies and Ryuu is soon thrust into the world where a witches have their supernatural abilities awakened by kissing.
One man. Many girls. All in one club, and of course they all fall in love with him. While there are romantic feelings in D-Frag, Yamada-kun puts more of a focus on it. The show also differs by having a supernatural element as well.
While minding her own business on the train, Momoka Sonokawa is accosted by a pervert. However, in the nick of time, a girl named Miou appears brandishing twin pistols and scares him off. Of course, she is then arrested for possessing firearms. Later, Momoka sees her at school. After following her, she discovers that this girl is actually part of the Survival Game Club.
The major difference of Sagabe Club is that it is an all-female cast. That’s right, no random degenerate male that everyone falls in love with. This club also has somewhat of a purpose to it, but the anime as a whole, like D-Frag, is just about making people laugh.
For Fans of Witty Comedy
Baka and Test
Akihisa Yoshii attends a school where the student body is divided into classes based on the results of tests. Unfortunately, after helping a fainting girl on his placement exams, Akihisa is placed on the lowest rung – F Class. While in this school he can fight with augmented avatars empowered by test results to steal the perks of higher classes, Akihisa is an idiot and his classmates are none too bright either.
Baka and Test is often like D-Frag+. It has so many different characters with unique personalities and quirks that it is always a pleasure to watch and each episode never fails to get laughs. While there is some vague sort of plot to Baka and Test, mostly people watch it for the comedy.
The Daily Lives of High School Boys
This is the tale of three boys that roam the halls of the all-boys school of Sanada North. Their lives are filled with nothing but giant robot drama and true love stories, at least in their imaginations. In reality, these three boys are nothing special, but they try their best to pass the time.
D-Frag doesn’t often get its humor from completely abstract randomness, but on occasion that plays a part in why it is so funny. The Daily Lives of High School Boys is more about random humor, but it is effective humor none-the-less. Unfortunately, only D-Frag brings the cute girls.
Sophomore high school student Tenma Tsukamoto is on a quest to confess her feelings to the boy she likes. Kenji Harima, a delinquent, is on the same quest. This is the story of the complicated world of one-sided romance.
Both shows are random high school comedies that feature the main character as a thug. However, the motives of those thug characters are different, but the comedy of the show is the same. While School Rumble is more random, neither show fails to get laughs.
