News D-Frag! Manga to Bundle Original Anime DVD
posted on 2014-03-24 10:20 EDT
The May issue of Kadokawa's Monthly Comic Alive magazine is announcing on Wednesday that the ninth special-edition volume of Tomoya Haruno's D-Frag! manga will bundle a original anime DVD (OAD). The DVD will adapt the popular Shrine Water arc and ship on September 22.
The manga and subsequent television anime center around a notorious delinquent named Kenji Kazama. One day, he unexpectedly stumbles across a "game-making club" (working title) with club president Roka Shibasaki (game attribute: flame/darkness), club member and student council president Chitose Karasuyama (attribute: ground), club member and first-year student Sakura Mizukami (attribute: water), and club adviser/second-year teacher Minami Ohsawa (attribute: lightning). Kazama is half-forced to join the club, and the onetime gang member finds himself in an even stranger gathering of girls.
The OAD will share the same cast as the television anime:
Shizuka Itou plays Takao-buchō
Chiwa Saito plays Chitose Karasuyama
Mikako Takahashi plays Sakura Mizukami
Emiri Katō as Noe Kazama
Ryoka Yuzuki as Takao's Mother
Jouji Nakata as Sean Konekone
Seiki Sugawara (Kids on the Slope, Akikan! episode director) is once again directing at the studio Brains Base (Natsume's Book of Friends, Penguindrum). Kentarou Matsumoto is also returning as character designer and chief animation director.
The series premiered on January 6 on TV Tokyo, and Funimation is streaming the anime as it airs in Japan. Haruno launched the manga in Media Factory's Monthly Comic Alive magazine in 2008. Seven Seas Entertainment is releasing the manga in North America.
