Synopsis

The 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.

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 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 read more

Recommendations

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.
Very similar feel and humour. Aki from BakaTest and Kousaku from Nourin are spitting images of each other in personality! Nourin is smuttier though ...
