Product Description

Class F is back in the Baka and Test - Summon the Beasts: OVA Special Collection! Fumizuki Academy's popular Refreshing Festival is quickly approaching, and the student body is busy prepping class projects. For Yoshii and the gang, there's a lot more at stake than showing off for campus visitors. If Class F doesn't profit from its festival project and buy some new gear for its dumpy room, Mizuki's parents are going to send her to another school! Of course, even if the slack pack makes some money, they'll have to win one of the toughest Summoner Test Wars of their lives before they're allowed to spend it. It's not going to be easy, that's for sure. But once the underachievers of Class F get motivated, they don't give up - and they can't even spell surrender!

Amazon.com

The two-part Baka & Test OVA (2011) takes place between the first and second seasons of the popular romantic farce. It's time for the annual school festival at Fumizuki Academy, usually one of the high points of the academic year in Japan. A lot is riding on this year's festival: Class F can use any money they earn to buy desks to replace the cardboard boxes they work at. With desks, they'll look like a real class, and Himeji's father won't make her change schools. Under the direction of class rep and bad boy Yuuji, they set up a "European Chinese-style Café," which, incredibly enough, makes money. But at Fumizuki Academy, there's always a catch. The second day of the festival is a Summoner Tournament, and only the winners can buy equipment. Yuuji and long-suffering Akihisa call up their avatars, but they have to fight upperclassmen they shouldn't have a chance against. They succeed through a mixture of pluck, luck, and Kudou's surveillance equipment and sexy photographs. Although it's short enough to have been included as an extra on one of the Baka & Test sets, the OVA supplies plenty of the slapstick humor, friendship, and lust-driven nosebleeds fans of the series expect and enjoy. (TV 14: risqué humor, cartoon violence) --Charles Solomon

I admit, I'm not all too happy to see that unlike some other FUNi releases (Darker Than Black 2, Black Butler 2) that they decided to split the Season 2 box set and OVAs into separate sets (which they do sometimes). But, I'd be a big liar if I said that would stop me from purchasing this as well.

This OVA set includes the two OVAs from Baka and Test (Day 1: Me, Maids, and a New Start; Day 2: Idiots, Fireworks, and the Summoning Tournament) and it also has some special features included. The OVAs are just slightly longer than a regular episode of the show.

These OVAs were plenty funny and set up certain characters and events that appear in the second season of the show, but it seems like too much to pay for just these two OVAs and a couple of special features that just could have been packaged with the second season of the show.

As a big fan of the series, I'd be Baka to NOT buy it! But, whether or not that it is worth the price is more up to you. I mean, it is a little costly if you aren't really that much of a fan (after all, it is near the price of some whole series sets for some older Anime titles), but I'm sure if you really like the series, that this set should also be worth the plunge.

"Baka and Test: Summon the Beasts" is back and this time, the F class must take part in a festival and find out what kind of event they can do. Meanwhile, the Class F would like to have real furniture in their class instead of cardboard mats and boxes.

But what happens when Akihisa Yoshii finds out that if they don't succeed in the festival, Mizuki Himeji may have to go to another school. Meanwhile, there are people from other classes who are determined in making sure the F class does not succeed at the festival.

Does Class F have a chance of succeeding? Find out in "Baka and Test: Summon the Beasts - OVA Special Collection"!

This is one of my favorite anime, it produces great humor.

Both the English and Japanese audio have excellent voice acting.

The theme is a bit more mature, but I would definitely recommend this to all of my friends who are also into anime.

Compared to the actual seasons it was ok. Made me laugh and that was all I really wanted. Not missing anything if you don't get it.

This is a great blu-ray set for a great show. Baka & Test were one of the Anime "gems" that's hard to forget, and with this release, Funimation has given us the whole library. The price may be a tad steep (20 dollars for two episodes...), but the set goes for 50$ in Japan, so it isn't that bad.

The content itself is great. Unlike season one, this one was made in HD. The Audio and Video are considerably better and the animation is a bit more lively than the TV-series. They didn't save anything on this one and went all out on the budget. The extras are great as usual, there's a bunch of bonus content in form of bonus episodes, as was the case with season 1 and 2. There's not much more to say.

If you're less smart than the avarage man, you'll feel right at home here. If you aren't, you will laugh of all the anticts and stupidity these characters are up to. Maybe cringe as well. Point is: BUY IT NOW!
