Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu – 03
So this episode is titled ‘Food Expenses, Dates and Stun-guns‘ and thats basically what it’s all about – I do love self-explanatory titles 😛
So Akihisa and Yuuji are paying their dues and taking their respective female admirers to the movies for a date. Akihisa is more concerned about the fact all his food expenses are going down the drain thanks to the extortionate prices and the fact he has two girls to keep happy, whereas Yuuji is more than a bit worried about the fact Shouko may kill him if he doesn’t comply with her wishes 😀
This episode was amusing and I am glad that it wasnt stuck in the school or centred on a Summons Battle – its nice to see the characters in a Dayto situation (although Akihisa is so dense that he doesn’t seem to realise these are dates). Shouko’s dedication to spending alone time with Yuuji is admirable (and a touch scary), would love to know where she got the stocks, chain and stun-gun from 😀
Of course there was the usual running gags of Shimada causing Akihisa pain with her wresting prowess and Vouyer-kun’s photography skills – but they’re still done with enough originality that they havent gotten old just yet – hopefully this continues to be the case.
I also enjoyed Vouyer-kun swooping in to exploit Akihisa’s vunerbility stupidity to sell him a pic of Hideyoshi in his Round Girl costume from last episode…….especially since Hideyoshi was standing beside him at the time facepalming 🙂
During Akihisa’s 2nd date with Shimada and Himeji, Drill-hair Fang-tan shows up again…….I really don’t like this girl, but she’s got some skills with cutlery! I havent seen anyone throw a fork like that since Sebastian in Kuroshitsuji!
Of course fleeing from Drill-hair’s murderous lesbian rage sends our threesome barreling straight into the resident Trap and a cosplay opportunity……..for the fellas!
Of course its a rule that there has to be at least one Summons Battle per episode so they decide to lead Drill-hair to the school and fight it out.
Shimada and Drill-hair end up in supplementary classes with Ironman-sensei, where no doubt Shimada will be fending off Drill-hair’s yuri advances.
I’ve saved my favourite bit of the episode to the end; Akihisa’s new harem member – Kubo from the A class brings the yaoi-factor to Akihisa’s harem, Cara is pleased with this new development! Kubo even goes a step further than Himeji and Shimada by actually writing a love letter and having it make its way into Akihisa’s hands (accidentally and unsigned unfortunately)…….suddenly the BL themed ED makes perfect sense 😀
So three episodes down and I’m still entertained – this is good going for a comedy. Inner Yaoi Fangirl is most pleased by the addition of a male to Akihisa’s harem, BakaTest really is doing its very best to appeal to all sides of the fandom….I’m wondering what they are going to introduce next!
