Baka and Test Manga – Volume List, Spin-off, Ending, and Chapter 1 Review

Baka and Test, or ‘Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu’ is Japanese manga series cooked up by Kenji Inoue. It’s all about this dude Akihisa Yoshii, the main ‘baka’ (idiot) in the mix, and his crew over at Fumizuki Academy.

The deal with Fumizuki? Well, they sort students into classes based on how they did on their entrance exams.

The top dogs get all the fancy gear and perks, while the bottom feeders like Class F get the short end of the stick.

Not cool, right? So, Class F decides they’re not taking that lying down and start duking it out with the higher-ups for better gear and a bit of respect.

The manga ran from April 25, 2009, to July 26, 2016, and wrapped up in 15 volumes. It’s got this fun mix of comedy and romance vibes, with all the drama of a love polygon thrown in for good measure. O

h, and it’s set against the backdrop of high school life, of course.

And hey, this series isn’t just manga – it’s also been turned into an anime TV show and even has a light novel version floating around.

How does ‘Baka and Test’ wrap up?

Well, no spoilers here, but the ending gets pretty intense with this Summoner Test War showdown between the Year 3 seniors and some Year 2 students who did class F dirty.

Let’s just say class F comes out on top in the end. Oh, and there’s some juicy developments in the romantic department for a few characters too.
