Baka and Test: Summon the Beasts is a Japanese light novel series created by Kenji Inoue and illustrations by Yui Haga.An anime series adaption began airing on January 7, 2010. The second season began airing in July 2011.

The story centers around a boy named Akihisa Yoshii, also known as the idiot or “Baka” of the titled anime. He attends Fumizuki Academy, a school where the staff rigidly divides the students based on the results of their academic scores. At the start of the school, students are academically sorted by entrance exam test grades. The higher the grades, the higher the class, and the better the benefits. In this case, Class A is filled with the highest-scoring students; therefore, their classroom was filled with many prestigious items (air conditioners, fancy seats, laptops, a free snack bar, etc.), while the state of Class F is the complete opposite of that, representing the “bottom of the barrel” amenities. This academy has something special, where all the students manage to call forth Summoned Beings (Shōkanjū, or lil monster). These Beings are used for battles between classes with the goal of capturing (or retaining) the best classroom facilities. Since Class A is filled with prodigies, they all have strong Summoned Beings, while Class F has drastically weak ones in comparison. A teacher must authorize/supervise each battle, and the health and strength of each summoned being is based on the student’s last test score in that teacher’s subject (i.e. Math, History, etc.). The beings lose points when struck by an opponent, and should the point count reach zero, the being and student are disqualified. However, if the student can leave the battle before reaching zero, these points can be replenished by taking a supplemental exam. The student’s being may then return to the battle.

On the day of the placement test, an intelligent girl named Mizuki Himeji suffers from a fever and is unable to complete her test, hence her reining in a score of zero. As a result, she is pigeonholed into Class F together with Akihisa Yoshii. Akihisa, who dreams of the day when the academy would no longer be divided by grades, pitches an idea to his class to rule over the higher-level classes by doing a Summoned Being War for both Mizuki’s sake and to get more and more privileges. Aside from Mizuki (who happens to be the second-ranked student in the year), there is also the class representative Yūji Sakamoto, the bishōnen Hideyoshi Kinoshita, the perverted Kota Tsuchiya, and the tomboyish Minami Shimada (who, as Akihisa claims, is his worst enemy).

As for rating, i give 8/10! it is really fun to watch!

Rie Kugimiya , born May 30, 1979 in Osaka is a Japanese voice actress affiliated with I’m Enterprise. Trust me, her voice are so cute! Somehow i realize something interesting, that is most her voice character have same commonalities. Try to have a look at Toradora! and Zero no Tsukaima.
Kugimiya’s most famous roles include Alphonse Elric in Fullmetal Alchemist, Happy in Fairy Tail, Kagura in Gintama, Nagi Sanzenin in Hayate no Gotoku!, Shana in Shakugan no Shana, Louise in Zero no Tsukaima, Taiga Aisaka in Toradora!, and more recently Lotte in Astarotte no Omocha and Aria H. Kanzaki in Aria the Scarlet Ammo. She is typecasted to tsundere loli roles due to her voicing of tsundere characters Nagi (Hayate no Gotoku!), Shana (Shakugan no Shana), Louise (Zero no Tsukaima), and Aisaka Taiga (Toradora), all of those anime aired around the same time. Due to her popularity in such roles, some of her fans have named her as the Queen of Tsundere.

This is the second part of the story, which starts immediately after the end of the first part but extends into the next ten years, Tomoya and Nagisa start living together and get married. Tomoya has to endure several hardships that the family has been suffering from, mainly involving Nagisa’s illness. Just after Nagisa gives birth to their daughter Ushio, Nagisa dies, leaving Tomoya to fall into a state of depression. This causes Nagisa’s parents, Akio and Sanae to look after Ushio. Five years later, Tomoya meets Shino Okazaki, his grandmother on his father’s side. Shino explains to Tomoya about his father’s past and tragedy, similar to Tomoya’s current situation after Nagisa’s death. After hearing that, Tomoya decides to raise Ushio and acknowledge Naoyuki as his father. Shortly after Tomoya regains his purpose for living, Ushio is struck with the same disease as Nagisa. Tomoya, Sanae and Akio struggle to save Ushio, with Tomoya retiring from his job, but all efforts are futile. In the coming winter, wanting to do anything for Ushio, Tomoya decides to take Ushio on a trip, but Ushio falls unconscious and dies shortly after.

Tomoya’s psychology developed in his dreams of a bleak world where small orbs of light float around called the Illusionary World . In the first few dreams, he sees a world devoid of all life except for one girl (and grass). Each time he dreams, he finds out more about the world. Tomoya discovers the girl has a special ability to fuse junk together to create new things, with which she creates a body for him. Thus he is reborn in this world, and fills time following the girl around. Tomoya conceives that only the two of them are “alive”. To pass time, Tomoya and the girl try to build another doll with more junk they find, but as it has no soul, it fails to come to life. Remembering a distant world where he came from, Tomoya convinces the girl to build a ship so that the two can escape the approaching winter and continue a happy life. Eventually, winter sets in, and the girl becomes cold to the point where she cannot move any more. Upon meeting this tragedy, the girl tells Tomoya that he has another chance to go back and make things right. To do so, he must collect certain “lights” (symbols of happiness) similar to those floating around in the Illusionary World. If all the “lights” are collected throughout both story parts, a chance to save Nagisa from dying in childbirth will become available, and the true ending where Nagisa survives and lives with Tomoya and their daughter Ushio will also become available. As for the real world~~ Watch it guys~~ the rating is 9/10!! Must Watch!!!!

Clannad

Clannad’s story revolves around Tomoya Okazaki, a third year high school student who dislikes his life. Tomoya’s mother (Atsuko) died when Tomoya was young, leaving his father (Naoyuki) to raise him. After the accident, Tomoya’s father turned to alcohol and gambling, and held frequent fights with his son, which leave a big trauma to Tomoya . One day, Naoyuki, again arguing with his son, slammed Tomoya against the window, dislocating Tomoya’s shoulder. Ever since then, his father has treated Tomoya nicely, but distantly, as if Tomoya and he were strangers rather than a family. This hurts Tomoya more than his previous relationship with his father, and the awkwardness of returning home leads Tomoya constantly to stay out all night. Additionally, the injury disables Tomoya from participating in his basketball club, and pushes him to distance himself from his school and other activities. Thus his delinquent life begins. Tomoya’s good friend Youhei Sunohara, who got thrown out of the soccer club for a dispute, is also a delinquent and often hangs out in his dorm room with Tomoya doing nothing much(somehow Sunohara always being a prey for Tomoya bad mouth).

The story opens on Monday April 14, 2003 at the beginning of the school year, when Tomoya meets by chance Nagisa Furukawa, a soft-spoken girl one year older than he is who is repeating her last year in high school due to being sick much of the previous year. Her goal is to join the drama club which she was unable to do due to her sickness, but they find that the drama club was disbanded after the few remaining members graduated. Since Tomoya has a lot of time to kill, he starts to help Nagisa in reforming the drama club. During this period, Tomoya meets and hangs out with several other girls who he gets to know well and help with their individual problems. As a rating, i give this anime 9/10 stars! A must see anime all~~

.hack//Roots follows the story of Haseo, a black ‘Adept Rogue’ (a class that can use multiple weapons) and member of the Twilight Brigade guild. In the year 2015, the CC Corp. Building burned down, and with it, most of its data for The World. By splicing data from what would have potentially been another game, CC Corp. created The World R:2 and released it in 2016. The main revisions of this release were that the game allowed for guild and PvP (player vs player) play.

Haseo logs into The World R:2 for the first time and falls victim to the PKers (player killers) that reside within the game. He is saved by Ovan, who prompts him to join the Twilight Brigade alongside Sakisaka, Tabby and Shino which are in search of finding the Key of the Twilight. However, a popular guild named TaN opposes the Twilight Brigade in order to obtain Ovan’s unique character data. The Twilight Brigade discovered special items called Virus Cores and believed that they are the key to finding The Key of the Twilight and went into search for all of them. Once they had found all 6 of them, they headed out to use them in a one of the Lost Ground after learning there is a connection between the two

However they discover that it was a trap made by the members of TaN in order to capture Ovan. With Ovan gone and no sign of the Key of the Twilight, the Twilight Brigade disband and previous members such as B-set and Gord quit the game entirely. Soon after, Shino is killed within the game by a mysterious PKer named “Tri-Edge” that somehow put her in a coma in the real world which devastated Haseo. Haseo starts training to get strong enough to defeat Tri-Edge and save Shino from her real life coma. He becomes obsessed with power and becomes a Player Killer Killer (PKK) to find information on Tri-edge. When he completed a special event that promised a special reward, he gains a new power but corrupts also his mind and begins to kill PKers with more aggression giving him the title The Terror of Death.

As overall, i give this anime 7/10 stars

What I can say about this anime, it has unique story line with old Japanese time. The series is set in the Bakumatsu era, with the Shogunate being in its final years, and war fast approaching. When Akizuki Yōjirō, a dark and mysterious mercenary, nears something supernatural with some kind of importance to him, the ornament on the end of his sword hilt waves in its direction, his eyes glow mysteriously, and he is driven to go after it. He comes across a traveling theater group who is out for revenge for the killing of the parents of the group’s leader, and whose mysterious playwright likes to secretly help along events of history. Yōjirō joins them to lend them his skill against their enemies, while dark conspiracy continues to follow behind him.

This anime has a lot of flash back, so, sometimes you need to revise them to understand it. As for rating, I give it 7/10 stars
