The series is part of the push from Media Factory to get more of their works adapted into anime and they worked with Brains Base for this one. Based on the manga by Tomoya Haruno that began in 2008 in Comic Alive, the series is directed by Seiki Sugawara, who has worked largely as an episode director for a few different shows, and based on the scripts by Makoto Uezu. Seven Seas Entertainment is releasing the manga in North America with the fourth volume out last month and the fifth scheduled for June. The ongoing manga has nine volumes out so far in Japan.
Plot concept: Kenji likes to think that he and his gang of friends are the bad boys of their school. That is, until he meets the four insane girls of a game making club whose personalities are all super weird (and a little on the violent side). When Kenji’s forced to join their little group, his life quickly takes a turn for the outrageous.
