Synopsis

In a world where education is everything, if you manage to pass exams with your academic ability, you will start a successful life. However, those who fail the exams will start a cruel life. The world is capable of only developing the gifted from a young age as measured by exams – but there are some people who cannot accept the destiny they face if they are unable to pass the exam, and would do anything to pass it. This includes cheating and interfering with the exam. Thus, the examination hall has become a battlefield.

L (learning) type and C (Cheating) type students prevent each other from interfering with the exam, so that they can aim for high scores. In order to prevent the L-types from getting the high scores, C-type students battle against them. This battle also involves the examiners who do not allow cheating, making the examination hall even more chaotic!

The heated battle between Mumei, a C-type student, and Koui, an L-type, begins! Can Koui outsmart Mumei and her tricks?

Even with a short runtime (12 mins per ep) and a lack of promotion, for lovers of stupid comedies, Cheating Craft is easily an AOTS candidate in a strong season saturated with at least 5 other AOTS candidates.

Story: 10

China brings you a new generic shonen battle series to add to the pile of generic shonen battle series we already have in Japan. WITH EXAMS!!!

Cheating Craft takes place in a world where CHEATING IS SERIOUS BUSINESS!!! There are those who can learn and there are those who can cheat. Everything's fair in love, war and exams.

I really want to like this series...
For this first 5 or 6 episodes, this was an awesome series. I would patiently wait for the next episode each week, and although it was short with a run-time of only 12 minutes, it was fun !
It had good comedy, likable characters, an interesting concept... At that point in time, I would have rated Cheating Craft an 8 or a 9 !

But then, it began.
A plot attempt.

Watching Cheating Craft has become a chore more than a pleasure, because of its recently begun plot. For the past three episodes or so, I've just been sitting through boring garbage. I read more

Nozomi sings in the ED. 10/10

MAL keeps telling me to make this review longer ._.

Story: 9/10 Because we get an actual high school setting plus exams. Cheating is the main point if it's not obvious enough and that's actually one of the things some people do mostly on high school.

Art: 7/10 It's good enough for me.

Sound: 7/10 It sounds repetitive but I'll give it a fair 7 because the music is spot-on on what's happening.

Character: 7/10 As of now because I haven't yet seen the others. 7 read more
