Fumizuki Academy isn't a typical Japanese high school. This unique institution has implemented a new and innovative system to sort its students. At the end of their freshman year, students take a test that divides up the student body. The highest scorers are placed into A class, all the way down until F class, for the lowest of the low.

Unfortunately for Akihisa Yoshii, his supposedly "great" intellect wasn't quite enough for such a test, and he's now stuck at the bottom of F class. Naturally, F class has the worst facilities: not only rotten tatami mats and broken tables, but also outdated equipment and worn out furniture. On the bright side, his friend Yuuji Sakamoto is in the same class, and to everyone's surprise, the genius girl Mizuki Himeji has also ended up in the same class due to an unforeseen fever on the day of the test.

Unsatisfied with their perquisites, F class rallies behind Yuuji, determined to take on the higher-tiered classes in order to seize their perks by using the school's Examinations Summon Battle system. The participants can summon fantasy characters—whose power levels are equal to their student's test scores—in an all-out battle. Will F class be able to rise to the top, or will they live up to everyone's expectations and fail?

Even though this review is weirdly written this is still my full on opinion on this anime.


Now with Baka in the name you might think this is about idiots trying to become better at school. That is half true, they are still idiots and will forever stay idiots yet the person who made this story can be called an idiot because he is a genius. And geniuses can only make good things. Because that is what a genius is all about right? Now to talk about why you should watch this anime. It is funny that is all I actually ...

This show isn't a Kubrick film, and it isn't trying to be. Turn your brain off, have fun, and and enjoy. The premise for Fumizuki Academy is really fun, and the test wars are all so enjoyable to watch. The humor is often too pervy for my taste, but this show just has so much heart that I love it anyway. As far as LGBTQ+ representation goes, it was huge for me in high school to see some of these characters, but it also admittedly misses the mark at times. Even with all it's flaws, this is a show that I still love coming back ...

Baka to Test is a random gag and slapstick comedy about idiots in a school that separates classes based on virtual battles of monsters who empower with test results. And as cool as that sounds, in practice it is nothing but random comedy skits.

The story is, as usually goes with comedies, nothing but a poor excuse to put the characters in a situation where the method used has nothing to do with the solution. It could be anything about anything leading to anything and you wouldn’t tell the difference. Supposed, each class has virtual battles to improve their studying facilities. For all intents and purposes, ...
