First Impression: Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu

I dunno what the heck this show is about. I saw the torrent and decided to download it so I have no expectation whatsoever since I have no idea whether it is an action, shoujo, drama, slice of life or ecchi anime. But judging by the word 'Baka' in the tittle, I pretty much got the idea that it would probably be a comedy show.

And I was right.

Yoshii is a male student at Fumizuki Academy that used the caste system. At the start of the show he took the placement exam and ended in class F, the worst class (in term of condition) there is.

There he met with the other morons

The stupids

Then we have another addition to The Stupids, a sickly girl named Mizuki Himeji. Obviously she's the moe type so all the guys go gaga for her. So as to help her getting into a better class (because in that class her health would probably continue to deteriorate), The Stupids decided to do the Exam Summoning Battle.

Yeah he just repeated whatever I just said >_>

What the fuck is Exam Summoning Battle (or ESB)? In this battle the students can summon a Being with attack power proportional to their grades in a given subject. They can challenge other classes using this Beings. If a lower level class defeats a higher leve one, they will swap facilities and classrooms. The Beings are actually the chibi version of the students.

Like this

Obviously without a secret weapon class F would be done for but they have Mizuki Himeji to save the day. She is actually brilliant and is placed in class F because she was sick during the placement exam. BORING! The gags were pretty funneh before she comes with her 'special power' *yawns*

Despite that, I actually enjoyed the episode. I laugh for real at some of the gags because it was meant to be stupidly funny. They are not pretentious, aren't like some of the stupid anime I recently saw.

Yes, I shamelessly laugh at this XD

The art ain't got anything special but I really like the way they portrayed the background. The same goes for the character designs but hey this is meant to be a comedy after all. But that aside, the most important part is they did not neglect the fans who like bloodfest.

Bloodfest! What's not to like ^__^

Ah... I can never get tired of bloodfest. Besides that scene we also have a profuse case of nosebleed by this guy who take every chance he gets to peak at girls' pantsu.

This guy gotta be my favorite so far ^w^

So basically, if you want a decent comedy for this bleak winter season, Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu ain't that bad. I probably will change my mind after a few episodes but I am willing to give this one a try :)

art 6/10
story 6/10
sound 6/10
character 7/10
enjoyment 8/10
overall 7/10


HOLY SHIT. A class full of idiots? Great humor? Blood? REALLY COOL FACIAL EXPRESSIONS!?

I need to watch this shiiiiiittttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttt.

*chuckles* everyone should try and watch this shit alright

dude, this show was pimp lol.

"VOYEURRRR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! DON'T DIE!!!!!!!!!"
---"THEY WERE.....BLUE.....*faints and smiles*"

EPIC!!!!!!!! FUCKING EPIC!!!!! I really don't do magic anime too much just because it seems really cliche and crap. But this is definitely SUPER funny.

*chuckles and nods* hence why I like it XD

Hideyoshi seems to be getting a lot of attention from people.
Anyway, gag comedy is nice in a while and even better when it's not pretentious. I'll give this a shot. Thanks for the quick review. ^ ^
