Time to Get Tested!

I wish my class had taken over another class in high school. That sounds kinda awesome.

Word on Moon Phase is that Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu, a series of light novels written by Kenji Inoue and illustrated by Yui Haga, is getting both an an anime and manga adaptation The manga will be done by Mosuke Mattaku, who did ending illustration work for the anime Best Student Council.

The series takes place in a unique school where tests can come in the form of virtual combat-- and if you don't fight, you get a zero. Mizuki Himeji, who would normally be grade A in this sort of situation, was forced to leave an exam early due to a fever and gets plopped in the moron-infested class F with the protagonist Akihisa Yoshii, who actually belongs there. The classroom is filthy and falling apart, so Akihisa decides that since they now have a Mizuki as a trump card, they should take over Class A.

It sounds really fun, and I'm loving the character designs I'm seeing so far. Does it sound like something you'll watch?

I wish AP exams were like this... I dread the day where I will write three essays and answer roughly 40+ multiple choice in almost one sitting. It's more annoying then anything really but still.

This sounds promising. I love any type of virtual combat scenario.

Sound good. I'll give it a look when it come out. I wonder if I could find light novels though.

Dude... I wish tests where like that o_o;;

Although I'm curious if it's like something like a verbal test where if you get the answer wrong then they fling a really strong attack at you... etc...

Heh. Virtual combat for grades... They'd have to add SSS+ to the grading scale for me :D
But in the case of the person who got dragged down...man, that's gotta suck. Even with an ace on the team to help carry the load, it's hard to win if everyone else is an anchor.
