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.

The dub version for me certainly is much better than the Japanese version for this anime. It's funny and often warms your heart. Even the characters you hate you end up loving because they add to what Baka & Test is all about. Though I was confused about certain characters' relationships with one another in this season, I am happy that all the kids who are within the same group still rely on one another to succeed in competitions in order to maintain their status among the school's other ranks. But this series is more than just people and test scores and status. It is about people beating the odds when things seem hopeless and learning how to work together to succeed as a team while there are some who don't believe in other peoples' capabilities. As stated before, it is a heartwarming series and people learn how to appreciate those who play on the same losing side with them but that doesn't matter when ultimately, only they can count on each other to be there for them in their time of need.

You might go in expecting a shounen harem series, specifically of the Unwanted & No Romantic Resolution variety, but the humor seems to be predominantly aimed at women. The story starts off focusing on school battles &romance, but it's eventually dropped in favor of gay jokes, crossdressing, & female-on-male comedic violence.

*Akihisa: The main character. The world's 2ed most unlucky chew toy & fall-guy. Frequently forced to crossdress against his will.
*Hideyoshi: Every boy in school has a crush on him, no exceptions. Master of drag. Frustrated no one will treat him like a boy.
*Himeji: Yandere, wolf in sheep's clothing, fujoshi, terrible cook, one of the smartest kids in school, collects photos of Akihisa in drag.
*Minami: Tsundere who expresses all emotions through brutal torture. Also seems to have a fondness for Akihisa in drag.
*Akira: Yandere, fujoshi, terrible cook, extremely possessive & jealous.Has an incestuous fixation on her little brother.
*Hazuki: Little girl with a huge crush on Akihisa.
*Kubo: A guy who has a huge crush on Akihisa in or out of drag.
*Yuuji: Ahikisa's best friend, group strategist, the muscle, & the unfortunate chew toy of Shouko.
*Shouko: Violent expressionless Kuudere who's forcing Yuuji into a relationship against his will. Fond of blackmail.
*Muttsurini: Voyeur photographer who has a crush on every girl he sees (except Kudou). Makes money selling pictures of his friends in drag.
*Kudou: Sultry girl with a one-sided crush on Muttsurini.
*Miharu: In love with her sister & horribly jealous of Akihisa.
*Yuuko: Tsundere, fujoshi, one of the smartest students. Despite being identical to Hideyoshi, no one seems to have a crush on her.

This is another anime at the top of my list. It has a great story and worth re-watching several times. It's a 5 star and highly recommended.

Yoshii is good-hearted, but kinda dumb. His school is divided into six class levels for each year. The students are placed in their class according to their test scores. A is the highest and F is the lowest. Yoshi is in class F. The students at the school settle their differences by battling with avatars. The winners get school equipment from the losers. Because of this, class F uses cardboard boxes for tables and doesn't have chairs. Despite being a class of dummies, there are some pretty interesting characters in class F. 2 of them happen to be pretty girls, and they both have a crush on Yoshi. One of them is a tomboy that is pretty much catnip for lesbians, and the other is a sweet and charming girl that every guy is nuts over. One of these girls may just win Yoshii's affections, but will he have to survive the avatar battles and stave off hunger before he can focus on that stuff.

This anime is pretty fun. There are some interesting characters, and some great comedy. The animation is really great, and the soundtrack is cool. My only complaint with this one is the story. Baka and Test doesn't really have one. It's basically just goofiness. There's nothing wrong with that. School Rumble proves that an anime can survive off of goofiness, but this is nowhere near that funny. This series could easily be awesome, but the lack of drama halts it at above average. I do like this series, but it's not as good as all the hype. I do recommend watching it through Netflix of Youtube. It's an enjoyable watch. You may decide to buy it after seeing it. I hope you enjoy it.

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..
