Animax UK Adds D-Fragments

posted on by Andrew Osmond
Series about delinquent who stumbles into strange school club.

Animax UK has added eleven episodes of the series D-Fragments, which was broadcast in Japan this Spring. The series was based on Tomoya Haruno's school club manga.

The story centers around a notorious delinquent named Kenji Kazama (played by Katsuyuki Konishi). One day, he unexpectedly stumbles across a "game creation club" (interim name) with club president Roka Shibasaki (game attribute: flame/darkness, played by Kana Hanazawa), club member and student council president Chitose Karasuyama (attribute: ground, played by Chiwa Saito), club member and first-year student Sakura Mizukami (attribute: water, played by Mikako Takahashi), and club adviser/second-year teacher Minami Ohsawa (attribute: lightning, Ami Koshimizu). Kazama is half-forced to join the club, and the onetime gang member finds himself in an even stranger gathering of students.

Other cast members include Shizuka Itou as Takao-buchō, Jun Fukuyama as Ataru Kawahara, Hiroki Gotō as Yokoshima, Kenichirō Matsuda as Hiroshi Nagayama, Aki Toyosaki as Funabori, and Emiri Katō as Noe Kazama.

Seiki Sugawara (Kids on the Slope, Akikan! episode director) directed at the studio Brains Base (Natsume's Book of Friends, Penguindrum). Makoto Uezu (Danganronpa, Kamisama Dolls) was in charge of series composition, while Nijine (Baka and Test, Akikan!) composed the music.

Haruno launched the manga in Media Factory's Monthly Comic Alive magazine in 2008. Seven Seas Entertainment is releasing the manga in English.
