Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu Ni! – 02

「僕と浴衣とお祭り騒ぎっ!」 (Boku to Yukata to Omatsurisawagi!)
“Me, Yukata, and Festival Fun Times!”

Another episode down and there’s still no classroom warfare! But it’s okay, since I’m willing to forgive the series after demonstrating its impressive way of recapping without dedicating an entire episode for recap. Even though it’s been that long since I’ve watched the first season, I love how I’m slowly remembering things. The feeling of going “OH! YEAH” every ten minutes or so means Silver Link must be doing a good job with this sequel.

Just like how Akihisa felt something was a bit strange when everyone was acting so normal after such a serious incident, I can’t believe I actually started to believe that our crazy group of girls decided to let what happened last episode slide by. I should have known something was strange when Akira was acting like such an innocent older sister! I suppose I was a bit preoccupied focusing on Himeji and Minami trying to hit on Akihisa and Shouko constantly trying to force her love on Yuuji.

But things started to feel right when all the guys were rounded up and forced to cross-dress. Besides giving me another chance to say “IT’S A TRAP!” I’d have to admit that most of the guys looked pretty good in their yukatas. It’s a bit strange when Hideyoshi isn’t the sole focus of cross-dressing jokes, but it was a nice change of pace to watch the other guys suffer the same embarrassment he usually feels. That embarrassment coming in the form of cheers and praises for how cute they are, even though they’re GUYS.

I can’t believe that I forgot about Himeji’s amazing cooking skills. While I didn’t immediately remember why all the guys were being so cautious about Himeji getting hear anything even resembling a kitchen, that last screen with all the guys dying in the van jogged my memory. Rest in peace.

We’re already two episodes in and still no battles?! I’m still waiting for some sort of impressive battle between Class F and whichever class decides to stand in their way. While the humor of this show is probably more than enough to carry it along, the premise of this show promises crazy battles that are somehow educational. I want to watch Class F fight again!

    This series is still quite enjoyable so far imo… even though it has a different feel from 1st season

    I was just as surprised there was not as much focus on Hideyoshi this episode, especially for the competition.

    As for Shouko, just remember, you cannot spell “violence” without “love”.

      More like…she spells ‘violence’ as ‘nice love’

        cool anagram…. gonna take that to tvtropes and meme it to epic proportions….

    This episode was not really interesting. The nonsensical abuse the 2 characters take wears thin when repeated especially for Yuji’s case since he made a strong showing in season 1.

  • July 16, 2011 at 3:22 pmShinjiro

    Loved the first season and the OVAs…I liked the past couple of episodes but is it me or something is lacking? It looks like they had some sort of purpose last season and right now, it somehow feels different.

    • July 16, 2011 at 3:32 pmNhelraios

      Yea. Maybe this season will focus more on the pairings. I like that too but without the summoned beings battles its just not Baka to Test.

      • July 16, 2011 at 5:17 pmleonardo

        is just like you say actually the anime season 2 will cover volume 3 and 4 6 and a little of 7 of the novels and man something really mind fuck happens in volume 3 and 4 it really focous on the pairing but don’t worry the battles will come back soon

    • July 16, 2011 at 5:21 pmlkaze

      My thought is exactly, it seem to me that this season baka is not as funny as the last. It seem that all the joke is already been done for and overused. I hope it will improve soon enough.

  • July 16, 2011 at 3:26 pmNhelraios

    Tasting Himeji’s food must be the ultimate punishment lol. I wonder if the girls knew all along about her amazing cooking skills.

    Hideyoshi in that competition is like win by default.

    Can yoy really use a PSP to watch videos from a video camera? LOL.

  • July 16, 2011 at 4:23 pmAex

    Okay they’re done “punishing” the boys, so lets get back to the awesome. The festival and yukata contest were great and all, but everyone hating on the boys was old LAST episode. What made season 1 great is still there, now focus more on that.

  • July 16, 2011 at 5:23 pmlkaze

    Oh, i wanted to tell you guys that an arc is missing from the anime. You see Himeji is supposed to call akihisa “yoshii-kun”. There was suppose to be an arc to change that. It seem like beginning of season 2, they already jumped over that arc.

    • July 16, 2011 at 6:32 pmamado

      actually I remember 1st season already remedied that and showed how/when himeji started calling him akihisa-kun. im not sure if it was diff or the same from the manga though, I might need to check up again.

      • July 18, 2011 at 5:53 amlkaze

        Weird, i don’t remember the arc in the anime where Himeji call Akihisa by his given name. In the manga/ light novel, it was quite a significant plot advancement.

      • July 19, 2011 at 2:35 amTehJawknee

        I think it was the last episode in S1 where she asks to call him by his given name.

  • July 16, 2011 at 5:50 pmrasone0104

    I died when the perverted judge started to hit on yuuji…

  • July 16, 2011 at 5:53 pmFPSz

    That’s a really thin leg (3rd last picture).

  • July 16, 2011 at 6:30 pmamado

    I actually thought, when akihisa and yuuji were wondering why the girls were that nice, that the guys were still knocked out/dead and in a dream/heaven.

  • July 16, 2011 at 7:18 pmCroos

    At least I lol-ed much.

  • July 16, 2011 at 7:28 pmOni

    Akiko was so cute but still had no chance against the ulitmate trap Hideyoshi

  • July 16, 2011 at 7:37 pmCroos

    no one can still beat Hideyoshi

  • July 16, 2011 at 9:16 pmThe M0on DOgg

    LOLZ… I can’t believe they made them crossdress. Well, trying to hit on girls when your on vacation with some IS a capital sin afterall…

  • July 17, 2011 at 8:38 amKarl

    I dunno weither my humor changed since the last season or I really need the battles again, but I think Season 2 is pretty weak rightnow. There are some funny moments, but most of the time I just feel kinda bored.

  • July 17, 2011 at 9:34 amQB

    The cross dressing situation have make me laugh since the recent episode of Gintama 2. Their plan backfired and gathered more applause than expected, Yuuji getting hit by the pervert judge is flawless with his lover gets jealous to extreme. The four men incapacitated since they didn’t catch any fish as a result makes it funny than season 1.
