Kenji Kazama fancies himself the top delinquent of Fujou Academy. Given the company he keeps, it's not too surprising everyone else sees him like that too, but he doesn't really mind. He was perfectly content spending his school days skipping classes and hanging around with his two childhood friends Yokoshima and Nagayama, who round off the so-called "Kazama Gang".

Until, that is, he and his buddies make the mistake of visiting the room of the "Game Development Club". Made up of four ''really'' strange girls, before the day is done poor Kenji is "convinced" to join the said club. While one would think it would be a blessing of sorts to be surrounded by four attractive girls, their combined eccentricities ensure that Kenji's days of relative normalcy are pretty much over.

* ArtisticLicensePhysics: PlayedForLaughs with Takao's GagBoobs, which are so large and so bouncy they can violate the laws of physics, such as being able to pop the zipper of her tracksuit (and accidentally knock Kenji unconscious) and being elastic enough to send Noe's bento box flying 8 meters (26 feet) into the air after Roka accidentally pushes it onto her (which is further exaggerated in the anime, reaching ''27 meters'' [89 feet]).



* MemeticMutation: InUniverse, Takao's GagBoobs has always been of this caliber, though that WardrobeMalfunction incident during the TournamentArc generated more publicity than before, setting off several copycat attempts, including one by Saginuma. She [[EpicFail failed so hard]] she actually ''went into a HeroicBSOD''.

** Episode 5 features ''[=RaiGaiGar=]'', a SuperRobot show and pastiche of ''Anime/TheKingOfBravesGaoGaiGar''. The protagonist with a red color scheme calls himself out as a Superman and is even voiced by Creator/NobuyukiHiyama, voice of the aforementioned anime's protagonist Guy Shishioh. In addition, Kenji being a fan of said show is also a nod to his voice actor Creator/KatsuyukiKonishi's debut role as Volfogg.
