SynopsisThe story centers around Akihisa Yoshii, the "baka" of the title. His academy rigidly divides up the student body into classes based on the results of tests. The prodigies are in the A class with reclining seats complete with air conditioning, but Akihisa is in F class, the lowest rung of the school ladder which is furnished only with low, decrepit tables and worn-out straw tatami mats. A girl named Mizuki Himeji is actually one of the smartest girls in Akihisa's sophomore year, but she had a fever on test day and was pigeonholed into the F class. Besides Mizuki (who Akihisa secretly adores), the F class also has Yuuji Sakamoto, the class president who has been Akihisa's friend and partner-in-crime since the freshman year.
The school happens to have developed experiments to summon fantasy creatures, and Akihisa decides to rally F class to take on the higher-tiered classes and seize their perks. The F class uses the summoned creatures in an all-out battle for school supremacy.

Characters & Voice Actors
Baka to Test is without a doubt (well, after my bride is a mermaid ) one of the funniest animes you will see.
the anime is set in Fumizuki Academy, a school were you are placed also dictates what equipment you will receive. class F having wobbly tables and the worst cushions ever made. it is set around a idiot or Baka, hench the title, named Akihisa, who is placed in class F with other characters, who range from a boy who is confused for a girl, a complete pervert who should have died from bloodloss, and a genius who somehow fainted in the middle of the placement test, which means she was automaticly placed in class F.
we'll start with the good. this anime is funny. everyone who sees it will know this much. it is also cliché as digimon. clichés are not bad, but just creat a feeling of similarities between other such animes. basicly a parodie. and, like I mentioned GOD DAMMIT its funny! every episode you will laugh, and be smiling the whole way through. and the voice acting wasn't like Death note (English dub, I mean). so its pretty good.
as for the bad. the story... its not so great, since this anime is supposed to make you laugh instead of being stuck to the screen all day.
I have to cut it short. all in all, it was preety good, so I give it what ever I give it this review was my first and shortest no trolling... read more
If you want to see Anime all bundled up into one in the most stereotypical setting with the most cliche characters and unoriginal title and all the hilariously idiotic romance you could ask for, this is for you-- I love it!
I had the experience of watching Baka no Test as one of my first Shojo anime and I could hardly contain my outbursts of laughter and confusion. Then, I watched it after watching a lot of anime, and I still laughed because it brought back so many memories.
You have the cute, perfect, sexual magnet, (who can't cook) innocent girl that the hero seems to have a thing for- there's the pretty, flat-chested, violent, smart common sense-wise, tomboy who gets made fun of way too much and has a thing for the hero and people seem to dump pity on her-there's the pervert who has a nosebleed about everything and can't seem to put down his camera- the main character's hot, smart, tsundere friend who's relationship can be mistaken as gay with the main character- there's the quiet, dangerous, mysterious, extraordinary girl who hunts down the main character's best friend- the gay, smart one who just can't keep a cool head around his crush- the crazy, stalker chick that can't stay away from one of the heroines- the one that's made fun of for being both sexualities at once...
AND THE MAIN CHARACTER WHO'S INSANELY OBLIVIOUS AND STUPID. A perfect insert character for anyone.
These are the Archetypal characters of anime and whenever you revisit them, you can't help but laugh your head off.
This anime makes fun of any anime with any of these characters, this plot of starting from the bottom and getting to the top, summoning beasts, high school, and every genre in between.
Given that you don't need an insanely deep plot and you're looking for something light-hearted to watch: this is the anime that I recommend you watch! read more
Similar type of useless main character who shines in the most useless of ways. Semi-harem type. But on top of everything they have the same kind of humor and ways of executing the humor.
Both are light, random and very funny rom-com. While Seto is way more extreme in term of comedy, Baka to Test is light full.
Both animes have similar "stupid and random" humor; a love triangle between the comedic male protagonist, a tsundere, and the cutesy nice girl; a little fantasy (Baka Test has summoned beings while SetoHana has mermaids); and even homo-erotic jokes thrown in to make you laugh, feel awkward, and/or fangirl.
If you were entertained while watching Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu, you'll definitely find Seto no Hanayome just as enjoyable and vice versa.
Lots of comedy, each character is unique and main char usually finds himself in "life threatning" situations
Both are really random and posses an extreme level of comedy
Seto much funnier but baka more "gentle"
Great slapstick comedy and use of exaggeration
Same kind of romance-comedy, slapstick jokes and random storyline.
basically very similar characters very similar kind of comedy. both are just as funny (voice actors atleast for english are same)
Exactly the same kind of humor, highly recommended!
Both are Comic animes but have romance as well.
Both will make you laugh a lot in some cases.
Same Slapstick random yet very funny animation style, both a fair amount of action. But if you just want a show you can enjoy you cant go wrong with this.
Both anime are very fast paced and FREAKING HILARIOUS! They never get boring.
Both are super funny animes within a school setting and over the top comedy.
If you enjoyed either you and are looking for a good laugh then you are bound to love the other :)
The main male character have a hard life but fun. Same for both anime, he live with a lot of weird people around him. Out of everything both anime have a good sense of making humor.
Very similar feel and humour. Aki from BakaTest and Kousaku from Nourin are spitting images of each other in personality! Nourin is smuttier though ...
The anime have a same kind of feel and they have the same kind of humor. If you enjoy one of them, you're going to enjoy the other probably as well.
The school where our main characters study are slightly different than your regular ones, one is about agriculture while other is more related to super-powers. Nonetheless, the comedy style is very similar and so is the art. You will surely enjoy Nourin if you liked Baka Test even if the overall premise is different ;)
+ Same random humor
+ Main characters are very similar and both shows have a love triangle
+ School setting where different groups in the school compete against each other (BtT has classes and grades and Nourin has different agricultural sections)
From the studio that brought you the action series "Strike the Blood" comes a romantic comedy in a school environmental place. The story features a main male character who are caught up in a situation revolving girls around his space. It can be either love, jealous, hate, or emotions depending their mood of their actions. Expect some slapstick, and funny moments in here as the show goes on.
Baka and Test is a fantasy show where characters uses avatar through a battle competition. No-rin is a normal show that features an Idol who takes a "break" from entertainment and attends a school.
Both of the anime are made by the same director and it really show in the art style. Both of the show also use a multitude of cliche in an extreme way. They both have a really stupid and perverted MC, the childhood friend who is secretly in love with the MC, the shy popular girl the MC is in love with. Nourin is pretty much a Baka Test agricultural version.
- The Comedy parts of these two are almost the same but Baka to Test is much more funnier than Nourin
- The Teachers in these anime are weird
- Main Female Characters likes the Main Male Character
- Both anime do weird missions or tasks ( weird & funny )
- Both Comedy, School and Romance genre'd anime
- Makes you want to watch more
Both are hilarious animes that will make you die from laughter.
well, this is my first recommendation
when i first watching this anime, i had a feeling like the anime i have watched before. that anime was baka to test to shoukanjuu. the similarities are :
1. both akihisa and kousaku have an identical hairstyle, but different colour.
2. both akihisa and kousaku have an identical "idiot" personality.
3. both the graphics of nourin and baka to test have the same style
4. both nourin and baka to test have many of pervert characters
sorry for my bad english
There's some sort of love triangle, it's comedy, the main characters are schoolgraders and they're a group of friends. They're very similar in essence
