Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu – 01

The Idiot, the Trap, the SHAFT-ness, the Chibis, and the BL-ish ED theme.

The story has something to do with different classes, separating them from the results of their tests. (A-highest, F-lowest). Our lead guy is a failure, so he ends up on F class. There’s also the main girl, who’s supposed to be the smartest girl that should ace the exam, until she fainted, so she fails and ends up on F class as well. The premise is like battle of the classrooms. I like it, it’s something quite different and fun to watch.

Here we have…

The Idiot – I don’t like the male lead so far. He is… well, stupid. And he’s not cute at all. Idk, I’m just getting hate from him. And for sure I’ll hate this guy even more when some shounen cliche comes around giving this weak guy sudden super powaa >.>

The cool dude – He sleeps a lot, eh? But I like this redhead dude. Lol, I’m not familiar with the names yet (except from Hidetoshi lol, he’s goddamn popular already). Anyway, he seems like a cool leader-type. He seems better than the main male lead tbh~

The ponytailed tomboy – Yay for ponytails, and yay for that tomboyish attitude.

The peeping tom – obligatory comedic relief side character

The trap – will discuss more of him later.

The pinky – some boring “almost perfect” stereotypical damsel. Gawd, the lead characters on this show are MEH.

Moving back to teh trap now, Hidetoshi sure has one heck of a long Mahou Shoujo Trap transformation scene xD. Moar of this every episode plx.

Lulz. Hidetoshi is seriously on the running already for “Trap of the Year”. Lulz, why do the Winter season always had awesome traps? xD (Maria+Holic was from Winter too). Butit’s interesting how Hidetoshi doesn’t cross-dress because he actually wears pants/boys school uniform. He really is just effeminate~

I like the fight scenes!!! I want my hands to get on a PSP or DS game nao!!! I love this style of fight scene, it’s really like you’re playing yourself ^^. It got me pumped me up a little bit. Plus the chibis are so cute!!!

But oh look, Pinky defeated them all… *yawn*. But it’s really nice to see a girl doing the saving this time, actually. I also think her chibi is so cute too~

Bottomline:

This actually made a good first impression. The animation is pretty impressive, coming from Silver Link (can’t believe it after Tayumata). We also have SHAFT-y influence in it, because one of Shinbo’s staff is working on this as well. So yeah, you can definitely feel a little bit of SHAFT-ness with its artistic attempts: the soft tone, lighting, and random comedic inserts. I’m gonna stick with this one for the comedy and cute chibis. I’m enjoying it so far and I’m looking forward to the next one. 67% relevance points~

Btw, I like the OP animation… the animation only xP. I find the song quite annoying, but I love the animation style they use. Lastly, I’m so amused with the ED theme of this show. Lulz it was something I’m never really expecting from a moe show, an ED full of guys. Lol, I think they target on us fangirls as well ^^. Show ▼

    I totally loved the animation and the show seems the most fun to watch so far~ The fighting scenes were super cute.
    The ED is lulz, so full of BL fanservice xD
    I guess I’ll stick with this one for a while, too, since 1st episode of Sora no Woto was suprisingly boring to watch.
