Product Description

When a fight breaks out at Fumizuki Academy, nobody throws a single punch. Instead, the students utilize the school’s technology to summon Avatars, pint-sized stand-ins with battle powers based on academic ability. That “academic ability” part is bad news for Yoshii – because Yoshii’s an idiot, stuck in lowly Class F with the slackers. If these misfits want to escape their dump of a classroom and earn some respect, they’ll have to fight their way up the ranks and take on Class A, the Academy’s brightest students. It’s going to be tough, that’s for sure. But once the underachievers of Class F get motivated, they don’t give up – and Yoshii can’t even spell surrender!

Amazon.com

The romantic farce Baka and Test takes place at Fumizuki Academy, where high-school students summon computer-animated avatars to fight Summoner Test Wars in cyberspace--under faculty supervision. At the bottom of the intellectual pecking order is F Class, where the students sit on rotting tatami mats and use orange crates as desks, while their counterparts in A Class have computers and free snacks. At the bottom of F Class is Yoshii, a goodhearted kid whom everyone calls an idiot. But academic achievement takes a back seat to the Test Wars and amorous contretemps. The romantic polygons are many and complicated: loud-mouthed Shimizu likes Yoshii, who likes pretty, smart Himeji. Kubo, a guy in B Class, nurtures a secret crush on Yoshii. Everyone thinks Hideyoshi is a girl, despite his insistence he's a guy, but he has his own changing room, so who can be sure? The filmmakers include lots of fan-service jiggle shots and breast-size jokes: Yoshii and his friend get so many nosebleeds from lust, they must suffer from severe anemia. Things get uncomfortable when Akira, Yoshii's older sister, keeps coming on to him, but most of the humor is good-natured, if over the top. For maximum enjoyment, viewers should limit their intake of Baka and Test to one or two episodes at a time: too much in one sitting will quickly cloy.

Long story short, Baka & Test is far and away the funniest anime since Excel Saga. The characters are all charming and well written, the comedy is rapid fire and effective, and the entire thing is an adredaline rush of laughter, action, and heart. I first watched this with my collage's anime club, and I highly reccomend it.

not often do i find myself unable to breath, but with the uncontrollable laughter i had at this series i found myself in just that situation. full of some of the best comedy in an anime in a long time, baka & test is worth every penny spent on it. animation quality is some of the best i have seen and the sound and voice acting are both amazing. definitely worth the purchase and i am proud to have it in my collection

Baka & Test is destined to become a classic. Great design, very likable and human personalities, and just a level of execution that keeps you sucked in from beginning to end. Dont allow yourself to be fooled into thinking this anime is in any way stereotypical or childish; its unique and its title and artwork are very misleading. The cartoonish animation belies a mature, really intelligent and truly hilarious show. I cant remember many shows or movies in recent memory that made me break out laughing so hard, so often..

About the blu-ray?
This is a combo pack. That means it comes with 2 discs that contains all episodes on Blu-Ray and 2 discs that contain all those episodes again on DVD. So, you don't technically need a Blu-ray player since you got the series on DVD as well. The 5th disc is a DVD with the extras.
