5.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly funny, 2 Jan. 2013
By 
This review is from: Baka And Test: Summon The Beasts Complete Series Collection [DVD] (DVD)
Now, I went into this show with no clue as to what I was going to find and what I saw surprised me, it was good, great actually.

We all know the cliches of anime and this series is a massive mix of all of them, it's set in a high school, with a supernatural fighting element, there is fanservice, there are pervs, there are tsundere, there are airheads, there are crazy people, there are smart people, there are arrogant people, there are characters that have no name and are barely of any use and AFTER ALL THAT, you're thinking why you should watch something like that, well, because it uses these concepts very well.

I couldn't stop laughing, it seemed like a parody at some times, the background characters don't even get a face, they get a symbol or a hood, which was a great idea.

The characters are not new in anyway, but this mix of characters who are actually done pretty well, also make for some great interactions between each other.

The show revolves around a high school where grades determine what class you are in and you have avatars which can be summoned to fight each other and the winning class takes the class they beat. This isn't used too much which was good as the series may have got stale if it did.

The fanservice again seems to be parodied quite a bit aswell which is always funny.

Now, I have not listed characters because you just have to experience them for yourselves.

I know I have not really conveyed my message well in this review but hopefully it has helped you deicde whether you want to buy it or not. Although it does parody some things, it is not a parody show, it's just a very entertaining show that makes you laugh a lot, so far everyone I have spoke to on this show loves it and I hope you enjoy it aswell.
