Baka to Test to Shokanjuu – 03

Tasers - the must-have accessory for all girls

Only an episode update, so this’ll be a short post. No fights this week and so thank god for that. Instead we have a much needed 25-minute comic relief session filled with fanservice, misunderstandings and double-entendre. This week we’re introduced to a largely new character, the gay nerd Toshimitsu Kubo, who adds another point of humour to the series. This is a good thing because the in-jokes that predominate Baka get old pretty quickly. The reference to Apocalypse Now is hilarious, as well as Shouko’s extreme clinginess. Once again the animation is great and a point of fun itself.

Relationships - 'nuff said

However, as expected, Baka’s characters show clear signs of slowly descending into cliche. Both Mizuki and Minami’s personalities are largely forgettable. It’s good that Class F’s new homeroom teacher ‘Ironman’ gives life to an otherwise mostly dull cast.

And once again, anime has descended to cross-dressing and maid outfits

So far Baka’s got the humour, fun and concept to keep most viewers watching. The ‘entertainment’ factor will always be good, as with most comedies out there, but I highly doubt it’ll ever be great. I’ll keep watching for the time being.

    I quite liked the humour in the episode tbh. I did enjoy the reference to Apocalypse Now and I liked how they pointed fun at the cow slaughtering. The maid cross dressing somehow reminded me of Hayate the Combat Butler….
