「風間一派だ！」 (Kazama Ippada!)
D-Frag is a zany boke & tsukkomi comedy about one guy surrounded by a lot of crazy girls. Crazy guys too. Pretty much everyone is nuts but the one guy, and so far it’s funny!

「美月SOS」 (Mitsuki Esuouesu)
Awkward censorship, weird pacing, few explanations, and barely a peep from the main character until 10+ minutes into the episode. If this is how this series intends to continue, it’s not making a great case for itself.
