SynopsisGoofball Yoshii's still leading his crew in Avatar battles against the brainier students in school, but the girls in Class F have grown way less concerned with improving their status on campus. Instead of moving up in the world, the girls are more interested in getting closer to the guys in the gang!
Of course, some of the boys are totally oblivious to the romantic intentions of their female friends. That's to be expected in a group of dim-wits and misfits. Nonetheless, the femmes of Class F aren't giving up anytime soon. Because when love is on the line, even the biggest underachievers can find motivation – even if they can't spell it!

The story is simple with no focus but it is still good. It have the necesary plot and situations so it can work efficiently without loosing the main object. The episodes fit together into a continuous story. It could go better with more episodes but it was good enought. In other matters, the story was Simplistic with little miniplots for complexity but they work for the main story. The ending is predictable but still enjoyable. The ending is satisfying but open so you can´t have a complete ending.
It has an amainzing art. The drawings were made of especifics situations and make and hilarious moments that become Memorable. The backgrounds were poorly desinged but maybe with a purpose so i wont discard that option. The desing of the characters were complementing with the personalities making a good combo. Each one of them were make different.
The songs were good enought. They make you get into the story and give you a little of fun so you get ready to laugh. They were not amaizing but i really enjoy them. About the voices, there is not much i can say but they were great to me. About the background music i would say that i have never listen anyone of them... and i saw this anime 3 times...
All the characters are unique. They are really dummys but in a sweet way. Theirs personalities match with the story and between them making a great combo and make really enjoyable time. The background of each character were designed with care. The mains characters were given 1 or 2 episodies so you can really meet them and why they act like that.
The characters were growing in every episode and give more resourses to use for the main plot.
There is no character to dislike in my opinion. And the Narrator is selected in a funny way and he make a good narration.
Do you think you will remember any of these characters in the future? I must save this question. I would always remember all of them. They make me happy/laugh in so many ways. I would love to see them 10 years in the future or at least more of them in other series.
Baka to Test series is a really good comedy/romance that you can enjoy in any moment. It have funny jokes and situations that could make you laugh or at least make you happy. Its a comedy that anyone could enjoy and have a lot of Re-watchability.
It promise a really enjoyable and memorable moments that can be watched with other people or gf.
Sorry if i make a writing mistake in my review read more
Updated up to the Final Episode!
Baka to Test to Shokanjuu Ni! where to start... Haha. After I saw the first season when it came out I was left wanting more. What with the unique battle system they have in the series and the amazingly hilarious cast of characters, I totally wanted another season, and here my prayers were answered with another season of Baka!
Not really sure how to describe the story, there is a story behind it all, its just overshadowed by the fact that the anime is hilarious at every turn. Its not the main drive for the anime, the characters interactions and hilarity drive the show. This season actually did have more story elements in it than the last though, and it was pretty well written, becoming quite emotional at some points as we learn about how Minami falls for Aki and how Shouko fell for Yuuji.
I love the character designs in Baka, especially since they are able to make a wonderful mix of amazingly cute chibis to MEGA SERIOUS FACE transitions superbly. The chibis are used during discussions between the characters at some points and of course during summon battles where their summons are actually the characters themselves chibi-fied and armored. This season also threw in one last artistic win with the final two episodes changing the summons into a Halloween-esc theme, with the summons ranging from headless to vampires to brick walls!
I didn't really like the Opening and Ending for this one. Compared to Season 1 and the OVA Opening and Endings this was subpar at best. They aren't catchy or memorable like the others and you can't really say, "Oh my god, another musical ear worm from Baka!". Though as the season went on the OP and ED did become an earworm to be honest. I guess it was the kind of music you had to listen over and over to to become addicted, not sure if its a good or bad thing. The soundtracks in the background were also fantastic, especially in the episode about Minami's past.
I love the characters. They have a little bit of everything in this anime! Aki is the idiot that all animes need (He might just be a little to idiotic sometimes). But when push comes to shove he always come through like a true anime idiot does! Yuuji is the total badarse of the anime, with the epic character design and attitude to go with him. Mutsurini... I love Mutsurini, he is an idol to all men everywhere, he's a ninja, photographer and somehow he's a pervert that girls don't hate. I want him to teach me his ways. Hideyoshi the trap... He never gets old, right from the get go they still won't let him be a boy, and honestly, it never gets old. Then the girls themselves are amazing as well. Minami is amazing with her tough attitude and abuse of Aki. Himeji is the shy girl that turns into an evil demon when things go wrong (evidence = end of episode one). Shoko.... She terrifies me with how she abuses Yuuji, honestly, I think she could kill us all. I love it.
Well if it isn't obvious yet I love Baka to Test to Shokanjuu Ni!. The second season is everything I wanted it to be, with its hilarity, serious moments, cross dressing, and idiocy! What more could I ask for? (Maybe some moar Mutsurini awesomeness... The show might implode if we get too much though. I thought it was going to implode, freaking assassination's he pulled this season were epic!)
Overall, I'm sittin' here waiting for more episodes because honestly, nothing will stop me from watching this amazingly hilarious anime that is Baka to Test! read more
Animated Series Review No.3
Well, since I had reviewed about its light novel AKA the original source, I will be therefore tackling the two seasons of its anime adaptation (and the two OVAs) as well as the fact that this series (the anime) sits in #83 (first season) in popularity. In this case, I will be reviewing about the second season of Baka to Test to Shokanjuu (Baka to Test to Shonkanjuu Ni!), the sequel of a certain series filled with moments that will make you laugh and cry and laugh and cry and smile as well because of those moments that made you to be idiotic as possible (this is due to the fact that many other highschool-related anime were far surpassed this one in either comedy, romance or both, objectively)...
for Baka Ni!

Anyways, let's get started...
Story (5/10) [25%]
Exam Summoning Battle is a system used by the Fumizuki Academy that involves all the students being able to summon beings, often referred to as Summoned Beings/Shonkanjuu. Shoukanjuus are then used by the students to battle each other. For an ESB to begin, a teacher must be present to supervise the battle. The teacher summons an ESB field, a place only Shoukanjuus can enter. The Shoukanjuus then gain attack power proportional to their summoner's last test score on the ESB field subject. The ESB field subject is dependent on the teacher supervising the battle. As the shoukanjuus battle each other, their attack power slowly drops. Once a shoukanjuu's attack power reaches zero, that student is declared KIA and must take remedial classes. A student can recover points by taking tests in between battles. During these recovery tests, a student can take as many tests as they can in order to raise their attack power. Once a class claims victory, they can get new school materials, switch class facilities if they are from a lower class, or request that no changes be made...
Okay, scratch that. That should be put in the Baka to Test to Shokanjuu review.
This series focused more on characters' relationships and moments as seen in most of the episodes, while lessen the focus on the battles between classes. Compared to the first season, this one improved a lot when it comes to storyline picking... that is, if you haven't read the light novel. If you do, expect 0.1-10% chance of having a third season for yourselves. If you don't, that's better (since the light novel have its volumes followed a chronological order, something that both seasons of the anime adaptation changed a lot).
Also, this season was made with the assumption that either you have watched its predecessor, the two-episode Baka to Test to Shokanjuu OVA or you have read the second volume of the light novel. If you haven't done that, the last two episodes will confused you a bit.
As such, the characters' relationships, moments and development in the series is much better than the first season as it removes the concept of shonen storyline through the removal of the mentioned ESB system as well as those episodic nosebleeds from Kota Tsuchiya and those in-universe episodic attractiveness from Hideyoshi Kinoshita.
The backstories in Episodes 3 (second half), 8 and 11 can be considered heartwarming, as it may give a good impact to the viewers due to how good the stories are. Also, the other moments from the first four episodes is pretty funny enough, despite being random fillers, thus giving much more positive score from me for this. The arc style is pretty much the mainstream in this season, making the pacing to be good enough and it is easier to follow the story without any problem or confusion from how will the story goes on.
Also, the humour is better this season than the previous one. I haven't say anything about the humour/comedy of the previous season since it is a little bit forgettable for the most part. This season had, at least, became more bearable compared to the previous one, which made more sense since it sticks with the relationship of the characters as well.
However, this is where the positives ended...
As a side note however, at least, there are more positives than negatives this time around... barely.
There are some negative/not-really-negative things to note about this season:
(1) The backstories themselves really don't affect anything that had happened in this series that much. Sure, considering that assuming that Episode 8 had something to do in related to Episodes 9-10, the only idea that will transfer from the former to the latter is that "Minami is in love with/has romantic feelings for Akihisa." However, her language barrier struggles doesn't. Episode 11 can be skipped as well as it really didn't do anything that much for the series. In fact, that backstory is reserved for the last two volumes of the light novel (LN Volumes 11 and 12). The same can be said in Minami's backstory as well. Episode 3 (second half) is actually reserved for LN Volume 5, specifically its second half.
(2) Removal of the ESB between classes. Some will find themselves confused about it. Some will find themselves felt better without it. Some will just stuck in the middle. I find it good without it overall if this season is a standalone series... I find it decent without it overall if this season is considered an actual sequel to the first season.
(3) The change of main heroine to be focused. This is very notable in Episodes 9, 10, 12 and 13. While it can be considered fair enough, the shift itself is so sudden, that it will give viewers a little bit confusion on who's the main heroine of the season. Because Mizuki cannot be taken out since she is the central character of the entire light novel, you know. Still, character relationship development is always welcome in this case, this time, as a partial solution to this certain problem.
(4) Episodes 5-7. Aside from the formal introduction for that psycholesbian stalker of Minami and Minami's attempts to confront her feelings to Akihisa, there isn't much to tell about the story itself. In fact, it can be ignored all-together with no worries. But perhaps, the biggest issue about this one is that it only involves only the second-year students (300 of them). Yep, none of the first-years or the third-years are seen in these episodes. Unsurprisingly, this is adapted from the third volume in which I could say, can be ignored as well.
(5) First two episodes is hardly an introduction to this season. Aside from the first few minutes of the first episode , the two episodes are considered continuation of the OVA or the first season. This one will create confusion to the newcomers to the show, assuming they haven't watched either of the OVA or the first season or both before watching this one.
Still, overall, this season has a much better storyline than the previous TV season. However, in general, this series is a little bit confusing on trying to make this series a standalone one or being a sequel for the first season, given that the light novel AKA original source is in chronological sequence of events. But most especially, this season will create problems for the potential third season.
Characters (6/10) [25%]
Stereotypical characters at best, Mary Sue-ish characters at worst... Okay, Mary Sue refers to Mizuki, although it is a different case of Mary Sue, that is.
This season had barely changed anything about the characters, aside from Yuko Kinoshita's little character development in the first half of Episode 3 (which will proved to be a little bit impactful on her character for the latter volumes of LN), the three backstories themselves (two of which are reserved for those volumes of LN) and Minami's relationship development with Akihisa in Episodes 9 and 10 (more like reassurance of Minami's romantic feelings for Akihisa than anything). But at least, it is pretty much better than the previous season in general, even if some of notable important characters of the previous season were dropped in importance, such as Yuko, Akira (Akihisa's Cool Big Sis) and Hazuki (Minami's Token Mini-Moe sister)
One thing I will have a complaint about this part is Mizuki (once again). Mizuki's character is generally sidelined in this season, particularly starting Episode 7 through near the end of Episode 13. However, even if I do understand that she is the central character for the entire series, the sudden focus on her at times within Episodes 7-13, especially in the latter parts of Episodes 9 and 13, was not that good. It felt like the season will constantly remind you that Mizuki is the central character of the story (It really, really does). However, my biggest issue about her in this season is in the Episodes 12-13 where Mizuki is scared of monsters, ghosts, etc. I find it forgettable as that issue itself is no longer addressed seriously in the latter volumes of LN, beginning in Volume 7 through Volume 12.5. But for intents and purposes of Test of Courage arc, it is assumed that Mizuki is scared of monsters and after a short while, she is no longer scared of it, and kissed Akihisa on his cheek.
I may look like a bitch, constantly complaining about Mizuki Himeji's character. However, compare Mizuki's lethal cooking skills, her yandere antics to Akihisa Yoshii in the first season, her sudden illness during the first episode of the first season, her sudden change of personality when eating/drinking alcoholic stuff, and her fear to monsters (in short, just about everything about Mizuki) to, I'll say, Minami Shimada's language problems (Minami is more of a German language speaker than a Japanese one) and Yuko Kinoshita's superiority complex and singing problems (Yuko is a role model student and a Class 2-A student, after all), there is no basis, justification or depth on Mizuki's character to be explored from her past or to be called interesting at least, from any those mentioned above, other than that the fact that all of those Mizuki's traits are for intents and purposes and nothing else. And don't worry, this will come much worse if you haven't read the light novel starting Volume 7 through 12.5, just in case you are wondering. Even if Mizuki will be given a little bit of personality at some point there, the other characters (mainly, the other five major Class 2-F students and the four major Class 2-A students) are far more superior in terms of character than she is, despite the fact that she is a MAIN HEROINE of the entire series.
That being said, I didn't say that I didn't like her. However, I also didn't say that I did like her as well. This is mainly because I am actually looking for a hope spot for an improvement on her personality if there would be a potential third season of the anime adaptation. Otherwise, Mizuki is really a great problem in this entire series.
Art (6/10) [15%]
Say goodbye to those strange cringe-worthy animations, and say hello to the much lighter-colored themed art of the series, which is a good news for improvement. But even so, there is nothing special about that even if the art was really fitting with the atmosphere, aside from maybe the entire Episode 8, which created a mood totally fitting for the story of the episode.
Sound (5/10) [15%]
The soundtrack once again is pretty much fitting to the atmosphere of the show. However, none of them can be considered memorable in my thoughts. As for the OP and the ED, they are nothing special. Both the OP and the ED seemed to be catchy for a while but it didn't stand out that much, even if the sequences were somehow nice.
Enjoyment (7/10) [20%]
If you are someone who haven't read the light novel, this series will be a good one for your satisfaction, as there are some development from notable characters throughout the series. However, if you are, this series will be a problem, due to the fact that this series didn't follow the light novel's chronological sequence, giving an impression for me that sometimes confused me a bit. There are some moments that I could really consider heartwarming such as Episodes 8 and 11. Episode 8 is the most noteworthy episode for this season, it is really just great and heartwarming to watch, even if that one has nothing to do with the next two episodes.
Overall, all I can say about the second season of the TV series is that there are respective pros and cons. The removal of ESB between classes in this season might be a little bit trouble for some others to watch it, especially for the fans who liked that one concept, yet the improvement of development within characters is very significant in this season as a good pay-off. Mizuki might still be a problem at times, but at least, this season somehow manages to keep check on that one issue (especially that starting Volume 8, it will be Mizuki all the way for Akihisa). The humour in this season was a lot better than the previous season. But the story seemed to be something to be desired of improving itself as this series were parts of the light novel, especially Episodes 5-7.
Baka to Test to Shokanjuu Ni! as an introductory anime? Honestly, no... The reasons are simple:
(1) Characters like the Toko-Natsu pair will be one of the major problems in this series, when watching it for the first time, without watching the OVA.
(2) The concept of ESB system. This should be self-explanatory for those who already watched the first season of the anime. For those who didn't, it will create confusion to the audience on how those summoned beings existed.
For recommendations in looking other anime similar to Baka to Test, try Motto To-Love-Ru/To-Love-Ru Darkness, despite the latter being an ecchi/harem series. Wondering why? I'll say, something like this:
Akihisa Yoshii - Rito Yuuki
Mizuki Himeji - Haruna Sairenji
Minami Shimada - Lala S. Deviluke
Yuko Kinoshita - Yui Kotegawa
As a side note, I can't really recommend To-Love-Ru, because there is really nothing much to say much positive about it. Also, for similar highschool-themed anime, just try those that I had mentioned in my review for the first season of Baka to Test.
Before I end this review, I will be talking about what will be the potential third season of the anime adaptation be looked like (assuming I will be doing that). This is because, at that point, the romance is more dominant than the comedy itself, no matter how predictable that type of romance had on those remaining volumes of the series.
First, I will be ignoring all of the chapters within the .5 volumes remaining (one from 3.5, one from 7.5, 9.5, 10.5, 12.5), aside from the last chapter of 10.5. All of those ignored can be reserved as potential OVAs.
Second, aside from introducing a certain third-year Fumizuki student (the third-year valedictorian himself) and reintroducing ESB system for the third season, there is no real reason to explore much depth about the seventh volume as it is just a combination of Volumes 2 (the two-episode OVAs) and 6 (the last two episodes of the second season)
Last, I will be inserting anime-original episodes/content on this season, mostly and generally concerning on Yuko's character development (especially on her friendly relationship with Akihisa and with her younger twin brother Hideyoshi and her singing problems. This is despite the fact she is not obviously winning Akihisa's heart anyways) and addition for Mizuki's character. Yuko is easy to deal with for that matter. Mizuki, on the other hand... I am not sure on how will make her character strong enough, when everything about her in the entire series is pretty random. But still, some additions for Mizuki's character will be a little bit of a nice touch. Also, I will be adding some appearances for Yuka Koyama (Class 2-C Representative) and that certain third year valedictorian elsewhere within Episodes 1-10.
So... Assuming we have thirteen episodes for the third season. This will how it works (and this is the best that I could think of):
Episode 1: Some anime-original content regarding ESB system and some parts of Volume 7 (for foreshadowing, because the author of the light novel loves to use foreshadowing no matter what) as well as a little bit in the beginning of Volume 8.
Episode 2-3: Volume 8 and the last chapter of Volume 10.5 combined.
Episode 4-6: Anime-original episodes concerning more of Yuko's character development (reminding me of Yui Kotegawa's character development in To-Love-Ru Darkness)
Episode 7-8: Volume 9
Episode 9-10: Volume 10
Episode 11-13: Volumes 11 and 12
Despite my disappointment for the last two volumes of the light novel (aside from the last chapter of Volume 12, since it is hilarious as well as I could say "a strike of Archer's arrow (Caladbolg II, I guess?) to Mizuki's heart" because of her little-to-no personality at all) and my great amount of complaints about it in my review for the series' LN, I can't really do anything much about it as there are moments on those remaining volumes that can be called glorious, even if they are a little bit predictable (if you read the light novel carefully, like Hideyoshi's voice acting and his being a member of school's Drama Club and Kota/Muttsulini's Crippling Overspecialization in Health and P.E. subjects and weakness on alluring girls, to say the least). Still, I wish the anime will not focused on being "for all intents and purposes" because the light novel, specifically, the last two volumes, was already filled with some "for all intents and purposes"/contrivances, especially when it comes to the romance aspect of the series.
In case one might ask about the main heroine in this one, I will be going to say Yuko (the first season was more Mizuki-focused, the second season was more Minami-focused). Not really because she is also one of the three female characters who had romantic feelings for the main protagonist or because she is one of my favorite characters in this anime, but because the other two female characters (Mizuki and Minami) are now limited their characters/personalities into being in a competition for being with the main protagonist since between Volumes 8 and 9 (and there isn't not much depth to explore more on these two characters from hereon (aside from Minami having interactions with Miharu Shimizu), thus the competition), leaving Yuko's role more relevant for the future events within the potential third season. (even I realized Akihisa and Yuko were the actual polar opposites of one another compared to Akihisa and Mizuki).
That's my opinion though about a potential third season.
So, that ends my review and see you next time. read more
What happens if you combine PaniPoniDash! with FinalFantasy Tactics and the visual style from the Scott Pilgrim movie/comic ??? I think the result would be Baka To Test, the funniest anime I have seen in a long time !
It is directed by Shin Oonuma and is based on an idea by Kenj Inoue. The plot is fairly simple, it resolves around students at the Fumizuki Academy fighting for better grades and better school rooms. Which is funny, because the protagonists from Class F have the worst school room at the whole academy (completed by an inquisition club ! XD ). But the thing is, every fight in this anime is shown as a Summoner Test War: Once you get the permission from a teacher, the student is able to summon his own chibi beast and in most cases he fights against students from different and higher classes. If you loose, you have to suffer through the aftermath classes from the teacher Ironman :)
Now the characters are all somewhat stereotypical, you have the idiotic shonen hero (Akihisa Yoshi), the misunderstood genius (Yuji), the German exchange student and flat-chested tsundere girl (Minami), the shy dojiko girl (Himeji) the pervert with the camera (Muttsurini), a shemale (Hideyoshi) and so on and so on. The character chemistry in every scene is just funny as hell ! Especially because you see most situations from Akihisa`s perspective and as a true idiot, he misunderstands pretty much everything ! For example in one scene Minami says in broken Japanese "Watashi ......" while Akihisa understands "What a shit !", making Minami only more aggressive.
The humour from Baka To Test relies heavily on running gags. But don`t get me wrong, it is not annoying ! Most jokes are pretty smart in their own way because each joke slightly alters over the time and things are going to happen you never expected in your whole life. There are also some parodies from more popular anime. But unlike PaniPoniDash! the parodies aren`t that "in your face", they are more like easter-eggs you can discover if you want to. I can remember that CodeGeass, NeonGenesisEvangelion, Hatsune Miku and Izaya Kanra from Durarara!! were parodied.
What I also love about Baka To Test is the pure versatility: Some episodes are more about the summon beast battles, while other episodes show us how the boys from Class F deal with the girls (or teachers ^^) from the academy. Heck, there is even some card playing and cross-dressing involved ! The only episode I disliked was the beach episode ...... Seriously, beach episodes in general are boring and contribute nothing to the plot-development ! That`s the only thing I dislike about modern anime, but that`s me.
The character-design from Yui Haga is great ! My favourite characters are the green-haired Aiko Kudou, Minami`s sister Hazuki, Himeji and of course, Muttsurini. I don`t know, this guy is just moe in his own way and the way he interacts with his camera is just funny. I also like his bored facial expression and his random ninja clothes. He kinda reminds me on an old school-mate from my old secondary school. He wasn`t that perverted as Muttsurini, but they resemble each-other a lot :)
But I digress. The music is great as well ! Of course it is not progressive music with oddtime signatures, complex chords and whatnot, but it is indeed pretty catchy and just likeable. The only thing I can criticize is the lack of a real character introduction. In the first episodes you just got thrown in the bizarre world of Baka To Test and it`s up to you to learn more about the characters. Maybe that`s why some people oversaw or even disliked this comedy gem ???
I don`t know and to be honest I give a fuck.
Although being a completely different genre, LegendOfTheGalacticHeroes suffered from the same problem IMO. Why don`t you explain each character's background at the beginning from the show and not later in the second season ?
So yeah, here I am writing and praising about Baka To Test. My high rating is of course subjective, but to be honest you have to be very nitpicking for disliking this comedy gem (I never understood how average if not boring shows like LuckyStar, School Rumble or Zero no Tsukaima are getting so high ratings while all of my favourite shows are ........ Oh nevermind XD )
Just sit down, watch it and enjoy the show. I highly recommend this anime !
Suggestion-list for similar anime:
- AngelBeats (Really, the graphics are pretty much the same !)
- Scott Pilgrim ( Not Japanese, but I find the whole videogame aesthetic very similar to each-other)
- Mitsudomoe (Akihisa's voice actor appears in both anime as the IDIOT ! )
- Seto no Hanayome (Both of them are genius and insane entertainment !)
PS: Rewatch-value is pretty high ! read more
Both shows employ silly humor and common character tropes, have a healthy cast of both males and females who all have unique personalities and quirks, use love triangles as the main "romantic" comedy, occur in a high school where there appear to be no rules, and feature completely oblivious main characters who are still struggling to figure out this whole "flirting" thing. A lot of character traits transfer over, too. Practically every main character can be found in another main character in School Rumble. Minami is practically reincarnated as Eri, minus the flat chest jokes. So if you just finished Baka and Test and feel like you need something to fill the hole that the ending left, the characters and humor of School Rumble are extremely reminiscent of Baka and Test and makes the perfect next anime to watch.
If you plan on watching the dub (which, by the way, is amazingly well done), familiar voices play familiar characters, and the voice acting is just as good (if not better) than Baka and Test's.
When I first heard about Inou Battle, I was told it was like another anime. But watching the characters reminded me more of Baka and Test. Both shows feature a love triangle in which a flat chested, tsundere girl and an air-headed girl with a decent-sized (Inou Battle) or massive (Baka and Test) chest pine over the main character, who acts like an idiot in one and is an idiot in the other. Both shows also feature some form of supernatural combat.
Its same in comparison with idiocy where male character is complete idiot when comes to feeling of girls..
on the other side lots of comedy , action ( not the same action as in Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu where the progonist is always spilling blood )
maou sadao can be compared tosome levels to yoshii in terms of idiocy ( other than the fact that yoshii is a complete idiot )
must watch anime :)
- Both are second seasons to excellent comedy series that will make you laugh more than once.
- Both are packed with fanservicey moments.
- The characters in both are really unique and enjoyable. They both have a male character that looks like a girl and has a typical Japanese samurai name!
- Both have a love triangle issue with the main character that gets dealt with in the last couple of episodes, thus transitioning from a humorous tone to a more serious romcom tone.
You should really enjoy both!
both the main team are class F team.
both have strong girls .
both have intelligent character.
