There have been no formal announcements regarding the following season. There are also web speculations that claim differently. These are merely being driven by the anime’s popularity and certain fans who can’t contain their joy. Personally, I enjoyed this anime and would want to see it continue for a third season. In the rare event that the anime is revived, the Baka and Test season 3 release date might be somewhere in 2021. This area will be updated as soon as we learn more.

About Plot and Role Players

The anime’s narrative revolves mostly around the antics of the Fumizuki Academy, a renowned fictitious Japanese school where pupils are violently discriminated against based on their academic achievements. The school is clear about this reality and even encourages pupils to fight for access to the greatest amenities given by the school. They have given a total of six divisions, each of which gives the pupils with a different level of comfort.

Segment A is the most pleasant, with comfy chairs, air conditioning, and a free food bar for students. Section F, on the other hand, is a picture of suffering, with old worn out mats and low wooden tables for the pupils. Needless to say, the top pupils in the school are assigned to Section A, the worst to Section F, and the average to the middle sections. This is highly unjust to pupils who are unable to achieve in school since they are constantly belittled by the institution itself. The poor pupils do not have access to laptop computers, but the clever students do, and therefore the gap between the groups widens.

However, there is a simple catch here, because of this imbalance, they have implemented a new combat system that allows students to battle against one other in order to win access to better classes. This allows pupils at the bottom of the mix to move up the ranks even if they are unable to do so academically. This also removes the unfair edge that the good students had and, one would suppose, puts the ball exactly in the middle ground!

Duels are fought not between pupils, but between special figures known as ‘Shkanj‘ or ‘Avatars’ that they call. These monsters may be called at will, but they cannot interact with common items, and an instructor is always required to supervise a battle. Section A students get access to the best avatars, while Section F students have access to the worst.

His avatar is also highly experienced and can do some pretty exceptional actions, allowing him to win bouts that would otherwise be regarded unwinnable. His combat talents, however, do not come in useful when it comes to his romantic life. He is pursued by many girls and even boys at school, but he is unaware of this due to his stupidity, which occasionally leads to hilarious interactions between the characters.

However, after working together for a long period, Akihisa and his avatar have created a particularly special relationship with each other, giving them an advantage in every combat. His avatar is also highly experienced and can do some pretty exceptional actions, allowing him to win bouts that would otherwise be regarded unwinnable. His combat talents, however, do not come in useful when it comes to his romantic life. He is sought by many females and even boys at school, but he is unaware of this owing to his naivety, which occasionally leads to humorous encounters amongst the characters.
