As part of their ongoing rebellion, the Battlefront has decided to commence a new mission: Operation High Tension Syndrome. For one day the group will pretend to be living fulfilling school lives in the hopes of confusing Angel when they fail to. With the threat of a week-long fast hanging over their heads should they fail, everyone is putting their all into the mission. While Hinata is getting turned on by random historical figures and Takamatsu exposes his muscles at every turn, Otonashi, Fujimaki and TK work on clearing the cafeteria out of food as Noda decides to transform the after school cleaning into a frenzied race for glory - but will they achieve their objective?
I think someone confused tension with excitement since there wasn't really a lot of tension, just a lot of excitement or enthusiasm. So other than the fact that someone can't read a dictionary and understand what they read, it was good. It's a full length episode that fits somewhere in the middle of the show. The episode uses some new ideas to be funny instead of what was often used in the main series. The biggest issue I found was the animation. It's like when you try to use your camera and there is just too much light so you have this bright spot and everything else sort of fades a bit. It's interesting I suppose, since the two and a half minute special is darker than the series and this special is lighter than the series. Darker is better. I was somewhat dissappointed as I had hoped one of the specials would continue the story a bit further or clear some things up, but it's not surprising that neither of them did. Oh well. If you watched the dubbed version of the series, this special and the other one are available on youtube dubbed. I didn't find them anywhere else, but if you look for them on youtube, they are there.
If you haven't watched this yet, when you do you'll burst into tears. This is possibly one of the funniest episodes in the series and should be deserving of a perfect 10, but I have my reasons as to why it didn't. So lets start there... The story and plot to this particular episode was actually comical, but the animation and sound fell just a touch short for me. The characters however continued their hilarity and their idiocies that it felt as though it was a normal episode that should have been part of the series in stead of a stand alone special episode.
this was just a filler episode that they created after the anime, but was timed somewhere in the middle. I gave it a slightly reduced score for story, because This really should have been part of the series, and i gave the series a good score, but as a stand alone peice it was not bad at all. It was really really funny, good to watch if you liked the series.
