Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu – 05

February 4, 2010

Why does Hideyoshi look so much better than his sister!? It's actually disturbing me slightly!

Maps and Treasures and Striker Sigma V – this week the students are forced to take part in a team Treasure Hunt for Fabulous Prizes arranged by the Principal – all for her own amusement.  So how did our beloved Class F fair in this free for all?

Akihisa seems to have run out of cup noodles and is now eating flour – yes flour…..I’m seriously beginning to feel sorry for the fella now 😀  On the way to school he runs into Hizuki who is distraught about loosing her limited edition phone strap – which Akihisa found and left lying in the middle of the road…..however before he can retrieve it, it gets run over by a convenient steamroller…..oh dear you made the loli cry 😐  However all is not lost as the very phone strap that got destroyed is one of the prizes in the Principles impromptu Treasure Hunt which just happens to be todays mandatory school event!  Joy!

The students are split into teams of three; Akihisa gets landed with Yuuji and Hideyoshi whereas Voyeur-kun ends up on Himeji and Shimada’s team.  In order to get the co-ordinates of the Fabulous Prizes littered throughout the school, the students must solve a whole bunch of multiple choice quizzes – Akihisa’s team don’t even attempt to solve the questions instead leaving everything up to the gods of chance, using coded (and named) pencils!  Apparently this is Akihisa’s usual method of handling multiple choice tests – not a bit of wonder why he’s in Class F!  Ah well they get searching anyway.

Meanwhile Voyeur-kun’s team’s search leads them to the Girls Changing Room – the Holy Grail for perverts!  Unfortunately for Tsuchiya there are no girls changing, however his ‘Seed-mode’ activates allowing him to see sights most teenage males can only dream of…….yes the discarded clothing of teenage girls!  I’m surprised Tsuchiya hasn’t died of blood loss – those nosebleeds of his are spectacular!

In the entrance hall by the shoe lockers we find Kubo, who seems to be on the Hunt all by himself……poor Kubo 😦  Strangely his co-ordinates have led him directly to Akihisa’s shoe locker – those gods of chance are tricky buggers!  Kubo suffers much inner turmoil about searching Akihisa’s locker for fear of finding love letters/ violating his beloveds privacy……I do love his character.

Back with Akihisa and co, their search takes them to Himeji’s desk where they uncover a basket.  However this isn’t a prize its Himeji’s latest creation – chiffon cake…..three of them.  Himeji offers her lethal creations to Akihisa, Yuuji, Hideyoshi and Tsuchiya; but there are 4 of them and only 3 cakes!  A quick game of Rock, Paper, Scissors determines that Hideyoshi will be only one to walk away from this – alive, but traumatised.

While the boys are fighting for their lives inside with Himeji, Shimada is outside being molested by her unwanted yuri admirer.  Drill-hair seems to think her co-ordinates point directly to the inside of Shimada’s bra…….me thinks the only thing she’ll find in there is padding.

The search continues.  Luck is on Akihisa, Yuuji and Hideyoshi’s side as they find the prize Shouko was after – a VIP couples ticket to an amusement park to take part in a mock Wedding ceremony.  Akihisa offers this to Yuuji saying he should take Shouko – Yuuji is traumatised by the very idea.

Akihisa then looses the plot completely and invites Hideyoshi to join him at this Wedding ceremony – Hideyoshi gently reminds him that he’s a guy.  However Akihisa is on a roll and declares that confessing to Hideyoshi will bring him eternal happiness as per legends urging couples to confess under a tree.  It just so happens that Hideyoshi’s surname Kinoshita can be read as ‘under a tree’……the entire male population of Class F glomp poor Trappy Hideyoshi.

It’s now late in the day and Akihisa, Yuuji and Hideyoshi (who has inexplicably changed into a cheongsam) collapse on the roof……and then happen upon another prize. It’s the very thing Akihisa wanted – the limited edition phone strap set!  However his joy is cut short by the arrival of the Class A girls who are also after the straps, and as the rules dictate  they initiate a Summons Battle.  Of course Class F’s dumbest trio have no chance against the brilliance of Class A and they know it.  Luck strikes again when the bell rings, ending the battle before its begun – Akihisa can hold onto his prize!

Our trio claim their prizes along with a ‘Mystery Prize’ thrown in by the Principal for the craic.  These bracelets allow the user to initiate a small-scale summon area without a teachers authorization – however Yuuji and Hideyoshi’s promptly explode for some Trap-service.

Alls well that ends well – Akihisa makes sure that he’s in the loli’s good books by giving her the phone straps……..he’s either a really nice baka-onii-chan or a lolicon……I’m going with lolicon personally 😛

This was a pretty fun episode – nothing very original, but it was well put together and there was a lot going on; it managed to make me laugh quite a bit which is all I really want out of a comedy.  I haven’t gotten tired of this show yet, and I am looking forward to the next episode – very positive signs as we head towards midseason.
