Watch Baka and Test: Summon the Beasts

Welcome to Fumizuki Acadamy--a school where students are ranked and placed in classrooms according to test scores, and virtual battles may be carried out with high-tech summoned 'avatars' that resemble their student summoner! The coveted Class A encases all the top-grade students and provides every luxury the school has to offer--while the lowest-ranked Class F is left with broken tables, drafty rooms, and seat cushions.

In the midst of the Class F 'losers and idiots' of the competitive Fumizuki Academy is the delicate and princess-like Mizuki Himeji with the brains of an A-class student--but terrible luck, as she's hit with a terrible fever during placement tests. And the biggest idiot of them all, out to lend a friendly hand, is Akihisa Yoshii, Probationary Student!

Meet the tomboyish tsundere from Germany Minami Shimada, the androgynous theater beauty Hideyoshi Kinoshita, pervy photographer buff Kouta Tsuchiya, the quiet but dangerously in love Shouko Kirishima, and the cool and ambitious Yuji Sakamoto. Get dragged along into this playful cast's energetic daily high school antics as they compete and cooperate in equal measure to prove that brains aren't everything when it comes to what matters about the students of Fumizuki Academy!

Baka and Test: Summon the Beasts is a light-hearted romantic comedy with fantasy elements and a zany, over the top sense of humor. The show has a cheery and colorful shojo anime aesthetic. Though an overall sweet and funny story with a relatively young cast of characters, the frequent risque and sexually-implicit jokes make this not a suitable choice for children. The target demographic is young adult males, though the show has a wide potential appeal to female or older audiences as well.

Baka and Test: Summon the Beasts was originally a light novel series written by Kenji Inoue and later adapted into the television anime series of the same name by Media Factory. It was directed by Shin Onuma and animated by Silver link. The show is licensed by Funimation for the North American English localization. The complete series is two seasons with 13 episodes each and 2 OVA episodes, equaling 29 total.

  • Akihisa and the gang continue to challenge the Year 3 students in the haunted house, although there are only a few people left who aren't disqualified. What is their plan to beat the Year 3 Toko-Natsu Duo? Who will be the winner of the courage contest?

  • Akihisa and the gang find out that their Avatars are different from usual. While they're making a racket, their upperclassmen come in and start an Avatar battle. However, the Principal stops them by telling them to use the scores in a Courage Contest.

  • Shoko and Yuuji take a trip down memory lane, recalling their days in elementary school. After Shoko transfers to Yuuji's school, she finds herself having a hard time making friends, and tries to befriend Yuuji. He acts indifferent at first, but then...

  • Akihisa realizes that Minami is acting strange because of the email he sent her by mistake during the training camp. When Miharu gets upset and tries to take it out on Class F by starting a Summoner Test War, they have to find a way out of it.

  • When Minami's family returned from Germany, she spoke little Japanese. Although she tried to fit in, her mistakes caused her classmates to stay away... except for Akihisa. Unfortunately, he screws up his attempts to be nice to her and upsets her instead.

  • The last day of the training camp is fast approaching, and Akihisa and Yuuji hatch one more plan to try and peek on the girls and find out who their blackmailer is. This sets the stage for an all-out showdown between the guys and the girls.

  • The search for the blackmailer continues, with Akihisa, Yuuji and the others narrowing in on a suspect: Aiko Kudou. In order to confirm their hunch, the gang once again sets out to sneak a peek during bath time.

  • Complications arise after Mizuki and Shouko interrupt Akihisa's card game. Later, during a test of the Avatar system, the summoners of Class F are embarrassed to find their innermost thoughts revealed.

  • When Hideyoshi's tone-deaf twin is asked to sing the school song, he's roped into a costume change that's just asking for trouble. Then, Akihisa gets a new admirer - or two? - when he risks his neck to help Haduki cheer up her big sis.

  • Just when Akihisa and Yuuji start to feel like the girls may have forgiven them, they discover the worst is yet to come. The summer festival has some peculiar punishment in store for all the guys!

  • A trip to the beach turns competitive after the girls get hit on, and Akihisa and Yuuji try to prove they have the skills necessary to be successful ladies men!

  • Unhappy with the results of their battle against Class F, Class A demands a rematch! This time it's going to be one on one - Shouko versus Yoshii!

  • The showdown between the best and the worst is underway! Yoshii's crew unleashes with all they've got against Class A, battling all over campus - and above it. Will Class F's training finally pay off?

  • Class F pulls out all the stops in an amazing battle against Class D! If Yoshii and his crew come out on top, they'll be taking on Class B too.

  • Yoshii's got to prove to his visiting sister that he can handle living alone. It won't be easy, thanks to a misunderstood text message, some dirty magazines, and Minami and Himeji's new makeovers.

  • Something is wrong with the Avatars at Fumizuki Academy; the beings aren't just acting weird, they look a lot different too. Luckily, Yoshii might be able to solve the problem.

  • The gang puts on disguises to make sure Yuji and Shouko have fun at the amusement park, but the day takes a surprising turn thanks to an unexpected marriage proposal!

  • Akihisa gets a chance to test out his new bracelet in battle - but all the real action is taking place at the swimming pool!
