Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu episode 4

Hmm so after the rest of Team Zero and I have agreed to only put up censored pictures of Seikon no Quaser, it’s time for another episode of Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu.  Much of that was on my fault and I’m sorry for you viewers who had to go through faces with boob just to read the review.  That being said, I’m also changing the style of my blog that the style of blindability’s.  Are we in for another pointless filler episode like the third one or will we expect some more action this time from our baka-friends?  It begins now.

I did not have time to put this up last time for episode 3 but here we go... finally.

What happens..?

The episode starts with a description of Yoshii’s summon being simply physically stronger so it can do the deeds of the teachers, like carrying stuff.  The opening sequence shows (it never gets old… it never gets old) and everyone in Class F is reviewing, before Shoujo comes in with Yuuji’s lunch.  She’s a sad fellow, seemingly only existing for his sake… anyways, Yoshii’s lunch is 1/67 of a ramen piece (but we find out that’s it actually 1/64 – now we know why he’s in class F).

Yes, imagine eating 1/64 of this for lunch.

Minami apparently made Yoshii some lunch but forgot it at home and we get into another fight sequence between Minami and Yoshii (which usually means that Minami is breaking Yoshii’s spine).  Hazuki, Minami’s sister comes in and claims that she’s marrying Yoshii.  Why?  “We will inquire that later”.  But first let’s time up Yoshii up on a crucifix.  So more and more conversation until Himeji reveals that she made him lunch too, although she claims it’s not that good.  He is again tied up but Himeji saves hi… no she doesn’t.

How can you resist food from a cute person like her?

He ends up burning, and later ends up eating the lunch with Himeji on the roof and it’s looking good (damn, it actually does look good).  Yuuji pops out of nowhere and takes a bit… so does Hideyoshi… and so does Kouta, before the three of them pass out.   That goes to show that even cute girls can’t do everything.  Himeji comes back and he has a dilemma whether or not eat it.  Death, or hurting Himeji’s feelings?  We must all make sacrifices and after a few inspirational quotes from his passed-out friends, he eats.  Good night.  Meanwhile, Minami’s struggling to give Yoshii the lunch she made (and apparently she brought it) and eventually fails in the end.  Yoshii later comes up to her and says that he’ll eat it.  Minami gives it to him and walks away happily.

And so..?

So I thought it wasn’t a bad episode and was filled with decent humor as well.  It was obvious from the beginning that Himeji and Minami had a rivalry of love on Yoshii but this episode really clarified it.  However, I thought it rather focused and pitied Minami.  IRONY- Himeji, the quiet shy girl, ends up giving the lunch straight out; Minami, the confident one, ends up failing.

Some people don't realize how lucky they are.

Hmm, well it was surprising nonetheless but we really missed the aspects of the series in this episode.  No baka, no test, and certainly no summoned beings (unless you count that one clip in the beginning).  Well, this series started off excellent but it’s steadily decreasing in its goodness, but it still remains very good as it is… in a sense.  Keep watchin’, because it looks like something is going to happen real soon.  But I’ve been wondering: will class F ever move from their class?  Or is the battle concept over now?

    Damn that’s depressing. I liked the first two episodes, but the preview for the 3rd set off alarm bells. Looks like my concern was warranted. Hopefully it will pick up again.

    Well, if you look at the manga and the novels, the battle concept definitely isn’t over. It is going quite slow, however. I have a feeling at this point that we’re going to end the series with the announcement of season 2 for the Summer or Fall season.

    As much as it’s a filler episode, I did really enjoy the comedy in it. The battle segments are entertaining and make up the entire major arc, but on the other hand I think it’s good to explore other facets as well. That’s why I actually liked episode 3, but it was under the premise that we’d move on, which we didn’t. Here’s to a battle next week, I hope.

    i like the manga better cuz the war concept is more developed after all this whole grade battle thing IS the distinguishing factor of the show

      yeah, I’m hoping that we get back onto the battles… like the next episode. It’s still funny and the comic lines are great, don’t get me wrong, but it’s just we’re looking at a different approach than what we were interested in
