It’s school festival time at Fumizaki Academy and as everyone is frantically preparing for the occasion, the idiots of Class F are more interested in slacking off. However, with the prospect of upgrading their classroom to accommodate actual desks and the threat of Mizuki being transferred if they fail, the whole group gets the motivation they need. Having decided upon a Chinese café, the day of the festival arrives and business seems to be booming. Although with troublesome customers, Mizuki’s toxic cooking and rumors circulating about their café’s cleanliness, will Class F be able to raise enough to stop Mizuki’s parents from forcing her to leave?
Baka to Test; it may be stupid but it's at the point of being stupidly fun without moving into annoying and this OVA is no different. As the synopsis states, it's an adaptation of the Festival arc in the manga. It's recommended that one watches the first season before watching the OVA as to not miss out on some of the references to events seen in the first season. You don't have to, as this is simple minded fun and can be enjoyed without knowing what happened before (And that the first season was pretty episodic at times). But it's recommended nonetheless as it would be a shame to miss out on the fun of season one. Not much can be said about the story, as all you need is in the synopsis. It aims to be an adaptation of the manga festival arc and it does just that. It has the beginning of the festival, the festival itself, the twist, the solution and a conclusion to it all without leaving any loose ends. It works, simple as that. And it's not only simple, but it's fun. As usual, it provides laughs and without mixing and matching character traits to make it non-canon. You may not laugh at everything but I sure did. It's stupid but it aims to do what it does best and with an actual plot. The animation looks the same, yet better. I guess they kept the look and polished it up without losing the charm of it all, or the good looking crossdressing. The show does that stuff so well, be it with chinese dresses or maid outfits; it's amazing. Awkward... Ahem. Sound is as good as before and the music is oddly enjoyable. Not to everybody's taste but it suits it. Kinda nonsensical but fun. It doesn't aim to add depth to the characters but it works to make them fun to watch. Quite simply, if you enjoyed the first season of Baka to Test, you'll enjoy this and it'll help tide you over for the second season wait. If you enjoy comedy, check out the first season and return to this. Once again, this is an adaptation for the festival. Nothing more than that and that's how I primarily graded it; an extension to the main series and not as a stand-alone work.
Well, I’m not sure what to say about this except that it’s similar to the TV version of the show. The comedy is the same as well as all the mess ups and luck that the group has at times weather good or bad. It’s only two episodes for crying out loud and trying to find a way to talk about it without spoilers is not that easy. We still have the same jokes that are an on going gag like one of the male students dressing female and we even get a chance to see Yoshii’s sister sort of have a cameo with her cooking. It’s pretty short so not much there except a good watch. The animation is stunning, bright and beautiful. The colors are almost brightened as a pastel most of the time, exactly the same as the first. It matches perfectly and could have easily been put in with the rest of the series instead of being an OVA but of course good shows like this seem to always have a OVA involved. Same voice actors so again, done really well and matches all the good things the first one had in store. We did see some ‘new’ people in the show but they didn’t stand out at all. They just fit nicely in like a jigsaw puzzle without any real complaints. I guess the one thing I didn’t like was all the super loud yelling at times but that’s my own preference. It fit the characters and situation.
