“D-Frag” is the kind of show that is brimming with cliches that never end, yet it makes you want to watch the 12 episodes. 

As with other comedy shows with a slapstick twist the show doesn’t have a narrative and instead is based on absurd situations. 

What makes its storyline is that it deals with three distinct themes, which include a school-club anime set-up similar to ‘ Haganai’ and a battle manga-based style such as ‘ Naruto’ and a high-school Rom-com setting such as ‘ Ouran High School Host Club’. 

It’s quite remarkable how it can combine the three themes and is capable of executing an appropriate blend of the three. 

There’s nothing particularly special about it however in this instance it’s the situational comedy that is satisfying. 

It’s a bit difficult to define why a show with no underlying story can be enjoyable to watch and, to simplify it we can say that it has lots of fun that it doesn’t need any story to be entertained.

The majority of anime series in the comedy genre don’t make an impression, except for certain shows such as ‘ Gintama’. 

The show ‘D-Frag’ sometimes does not manage to make an entertaining comedic arc, however, for the majority of the time, it is in the”strike zone. 

The comedy in anime is heavily based on absurd situations. At time’s end, it comes down to whether these absurd situations are enjoyable to you. 

“D-Frag” is not the kind of show that will get loud laughs from your entire time but it does have some “funny enough” gags that won’t make you regret watching it. 

While it isn’t a clearly defined plot, it does have an effective sequence that changes between one scene and another.

Do anime-based shows like these require extraordinary artistically designed images? I’m not sure. 

That’s why although I was aware of Brain’s Base Studio’s potential in anime like “Toradora!’, the lack of character animation in this show did not deceive me.

It’s decent enough to convey what it’s trying to communicate and the fun, goofy character designs are just right to show their distinct characters.

Overall, “D-Frag” is not the type of anime for someone looking for characters that develop intricate plot elements that are in an interesting story. 

It’s for people who would like to watch an animated comedy that’s fun and doesn’t try to force itself to be segmented in the same genre. 

This isn’t one of the typical fickle comedy shows in which humor becomes subjective. 

For a time, you can leave your normal sense and take in the show for what it offers. 

It’s got a brief time frame of only 12 episodes, which means that even if you do not have as much fun as many viewers, you won’t be wasting a lot of your precious time.

D-Frag! Season 2 release date When will it air?

D-Frag Season 2

The first season of “D-Frag!” began on January 7th, 2014, and ran through until March 25th, 2015. The season consists of 12 episodes. 

Season 2 is something fans of the show are eagerly anticipating and the good thing for them is that there’s plenty of original material that the anime has to explore. 

One thing that’s not in favor of the release of a brand new season is that the numbers of the first season weren’t very good and is likely the reason we haven’t heard anything about the new season. 

At present, the whole thing comes to the discretion of the creators as well as the Studio. 

It’s unlikely to be any news in 2019, as Brain’s Studio already has many projects in the pipeline for the coming year. 

However, we could get some good news regarding the upcoming season 2 of “D-Frag” release date before the close of 2020.

D-Frag! English Dub

In contrast to other genres such as Mecha or Shounen, the comedy genres heavily rely on dialogues to make funny situations that entertain viewers.

Although some of the earlier versions of the series might be funny it’s very difficult to get it wrong on the dubbing aspects of it, and this could cause the show to be ruined. 

This isn’t the case with “D-Frag’ which is available as an extremely good dub version of the show available on Funimation along with Amazon Prime.

In the beginning, he makes several attempts to get out of the club but after a while is when he realizes that being part of the Game Development Club is not at all bad.
