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.

User Recommendations

In these two serialisations, there is heavy emphasis on class battles. What is more is that battles between classes take on unorthodox forms. In Mx0, magic is used; whereas in Baka to Test, avatars are summoned to fight in an RPG style.
TOO MUCH MOE IN BOTH! If you love that feeling inside that you get when you see moe, then you'd love either of these mangas.
Quite obviously, these 2 mangas have main characters who are idiotic, strong and very very funny. Although the premise are largely different, the way in which these 2 present their comedies have similar traits. If you love one it is likely you'll love the other.
Both revolve around school that allow students to engage in combat using avatars.
Despite featuring very different aesthetics, both titles feature specialised schools which rank students according to their proficiency in regard to particular subjects (magic in Mahouka Koukou, and normal subjects in Baka Test). Moreover, both also depicts discrimination of lower ranked students across all levels within the school setting.
These two action series revolve around a school setting where combat occurs amongst students using summoned beings.
