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.

id say one of the best school life comedy anime ever.

STORY (6/10): the story was simple and great. the main concept was cute and adventurous. being able to summon your "beast/chibbi" self and fight with other classes.
the comedy was great. i really laughed my ass off in some scenes

ART (8/10): ADORABLE. the art style is beautiful, the animation is great
i think for a simple comedy/school life anime its outstanding

SOUND (5/10): meh. nothing great ot memorable, nothing annoying

CHARACTERS (9/10): take all the anime cliches in anime, combine them and here you go. a tsundere, a yandere, a trap, small tits, big tits, an idiot (well, read more

Baka to Test is about a baka class in a very strange school. In this special school, all students are given some sort of miniaturized version of themselves (think avatars) whose "fighting powers" are relative to how well a student performs academically. Furthermore, the top class (A) is treated like royalty (think of accommodations like in Special A) where as our class F has cardboard boxes for desks. However, classes can engage in "battles" with their avatars (powered up by extra exams) to try to steal each other's class rooms. Obviously class F has no chance, but wait, an overly cheerful pink-haired girl (who is read more

Baka to test Review

Story - Baka to test story is pretty simple nothing exciting really just a bunch of high school losers who fail there placement exam and get into the worst of worst class. Class F and fight there way to prove that you do not need good grades to be the best has some romance and the comedy can be very funny and can give you a good laugh. 7.4/10

Art - I found the art to be pretty mediocre to be honest for most characters characters like minami,shoko and mizuki have great art but characters like yuuji and yoshii have read more

-shamefully presents-
Baka and Test (season 1&2 along with the OVA)(sub)

Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the universe-Albert Einstein

I was rewatching this stupid thing called Baka and Test yesterday for thinking why had this idiotic anime where characters do idiotic things in idiotic situations that made me laugh like an Idiot is in my fav anime list on top?
this review will try to answer that question.

Story(10/10)-Do not listen to any one else it has action,drama,romance.
Baka and Test has random situations and has just one real arc and that is peeking arc(do not judge it read more

Anime: Kore wa Zombie Desu ka?
They're both comedies that make fun of an overused topic (card battles and zombies). And they both have a male character that is used in a female role.

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

Anime: Seto no Hanayome
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.

Anime: School Rumble
Having a crazy school life? Well... it can't possibly be as crazy as the lives of any of the students in either one of these Anime. That's part of the charm of these anime.

Anime: Ben-To
Who would think that you could get a serious Anime from either story lines, but somehow the people who came up with the idea for both made it work. There is humor built into the story line too and it is very enjoyable despite the corniness.

Anime: Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou
The comedy between these two are amazingly similar. As soon as i started Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou i immiedeitly thought of Baka to Test.

If you like one be sure to check out the other.
