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

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.

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.
