Tomoya Haruno's comedy of idiosyncratic game-making club to premiere on January 6

North American anime distributor Funimation is announcing at its Otakon Vegas panel on Friday that it will stream the D-Frag! television anime series as it airs in Japan.

The story centers 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.

Seiki Sugawara (Kids on the Slope, Akikan! episode director) is directing this adaptation of Tomoya Haruno's manga at the studio Brains Base (Natsume's Book of Friends, Penguindrum). Makoto Uezu (Danganronpa, Kamisama Dolls) is in charge of series composition, while Nijine (Baka and Test, Akikan!) is composing the music.

The series will premiere on January 6 on TV Tokyo. Haruno launched the manga in Media Factory's Monthly Comic Alive magazine in 2008, and the eighth compiled volume is slated to ship in Japan on December 21. Seven Seas Entertainment is releasing the manga in North America.

Funimation will announce another anime that it will stream as it airs in Japan this winter.
