So the English title for this is "Idiots, Tests and Summoned Beasts" (though the anime adaptation is being distributed in the US as "Baka and Test: Summoned Beasts," because leaving random words in the title untranslated makes it look cool -- or something).

I'm going to pretend that this novel is actually a satire of the Japanese education system, because the idea that someone wrote a book this silly for no purpose doesn't bear countenance. The plot -- and I will try to explain this with a straig

So I started reading this series purely based on the title which caught my attention.
Also the book description was pretty vague so I literally had no idea of what am I going to read right now.

I really liked the story. It was something new and refreshing. I was glad that this wasn't your typical harem/ecchi like story. I also hoped that the story wouldn't revolve around Yoshi's romantic life but alas I was mistaken. But at least the class president of the A class is not in love with him.

Also f

Silly. That's the best way to describe this "light novel" from Japan. "Light novel" is a gender in the Asian country, which would translate into some kind of Young Adult.

So, what do we have here? We have the worst students (male) in the second year of high school, which have been all put together in F class, with two girls to give some color (one that looks and behaves like a boy, and another which fell into F class because she was sick the day of the test, but who is very smart, and cute and in

Đây sẽ là một món quà tuyệt vời dành cho những ai còn ngồi trên ghế nhà trường và đang cảm thấy chán nản về vấn đề học tập. Cuốn light novel này tất nhiên là nghiêng về tính giải trí, nhưng đến kết truyện nó cho mình cảm giác bất ngờ khi nói ra những lời khuyên răn hết sức thiết thực và dễ thấm mà không hề mang tính đao to búa lớn.

Cốt truyện đơn giản nhưng rất sáng tạo, nhân vật nào cũng có nét đặc trưng riêng thú vị. Nhịp truyện nhanh, giải quyết nhanh gọn, không câu kéo; lời văn, đối th

In Baka to Tesuto to Shoukanjuu, - Baka and Test - Akihisa Yoshi ends up in class F - the class for students with the lowest academic scores - and is genuinely shocked to see the brightest student in his year has ended up there. After discovering the cause, Yoshi is furious and makes it his mission to move her to class A. Yoshi and his friends battle it out with the rest of the school in order to complete this mission.

Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu, commonly dubbed as Idiots, Test and Summoned Beasts, is another one of those light novels I've discovered through its anime adaptation. I must say the latter is probably a more attractive medium to feature this type of story in: fun but without much depth, interesting characterization but way out of ordinary to be appreciated by an audience outside of Japan (e.g. Hideyoshi Kinoshita is seriously the last straw), vice versa. In other words, I would probably keep an eye ...more

I wasn't really sure how this would come across in written form as opposed to the adaption, but it was actually quite entertaining in it's own right and managed to stand up well enough on it's own. Looking forward to future volumes.
