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.

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

This show serves one purpose: comedy, and in that regard it does very well. If you're looking for a laugh, this is the show for you. Each individual aspect shines (or doesn't) in its own way. Note that (per my username) when I speak of voice acting talent I'm referring to the English voice actors (this won't have much of an effect on the review, but it's worth mentioning)

Story: 3

Alright, let's face it, this section doesn't even need much explanation. The show has barely any overarching plotline, the romantic plotline takes a backseat for most of the show and is instead 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.
If you like Baka to Test, I'm sure you are going to like this one too, as both are comedy/romance at school.
