Baka_to_test_to_shoukanjuu_wallpaper_hd_2-wideAkihisa Yoshii is the main character of this anime and he is a completely hopeless idiot. He attends Fumizuki Academy in Japan. This is a school where the staff rigidly divides the students based on the results of their academic scores from tests written at the beginning of a school year. The higher the grades, the higher the class, and the better the benefits and equipment. In this case, Class A is filled with the highest-scoring students; therefore, their classroom is filled with many prestigious items (air conditioners, fancy seats, laptops, a free snack bar, etc.), while the state of Class F is the complete opposite end of the spectrum, representing the “bottom of the barrel” amenities, such as mats and low wooden tables.

The story also loosely revolves around the love triangle consisting of Mizuki Himeji, who should be in Class A but is in F due to having a cold during the placement test, Minami Shimada who is a transfer student from Germany and strugles with Kanji and Akihisa, who is their crush.

Fumizuki Academy has a special system, where all the students are able to call forth Summoned Beings, avatars. These avatars are used for battles between classes with the goal of swapping classroom equipment. Since Class A is filled with prodigies, they all have strong avatars, while Class F has drastically weak ones in comparison. A teacher must always authorize/supervise each battle. The health and strength of each student’s Summoned Being is based on their last test score in the supervising teacher’s subject (i.e. Math, History, etc.). The avatars lose points when struck by an opponent, and should their point count reach zero, the being and student are disqualified, and must take supplementary lessons with the strict remedial teacher, Soichi Nishimura (nicknamed “Iron Man”). However, if the student can leave the battle before reaching zero, these points can be replenished by taking a supplemental exam. The student’s avatar may then return to the battle with the new test score.

Throughout the year, Class F attempt several Summoner Wars against higher-ranked classes.

My Thoughts:

A very light hearted anime that made me laugh and filled with inappropriate scenes that if you don’t know what is going on could easily be misinterpreted. There are some really stupid scenes that add to the humor of the show.
