Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu Licensed and Streamed by FUNimation
Posted March 4, 2010on:
This is the best news of the year so far: Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu, which I consider the most entertaining show in recent memory, is not only licensed by FUNimation, but it’s on the fast track to release. Starting tomorrow, FUNimation is going to start streaming subtitled episodes of BakaTest, which it is calling Baka and Test – Summon the Beasts. Two episodes will be available initially, and while the translation catches up, FUNimation will be sure to add new episodes as they air each week.
I haven’t talked about BakaTest much on this blog, but now that it’s going to be readily available to English-speaking audiences (well, probably just American audiences due to FUNimation’s licensing deal), I’m going to sing its praises every week until you give in and watch the best anime comedy since Full Metal Panic? Fumoffu. Every week, I watch BakaTest and come away grinning like an idiot from the constant stream of perfectly timed jokes and snappy dialogue.
So, join me tomorrow on the FUNimation video site and support this awesome comedy! Who doesn’t like watching a bunch of idiots and misfits trying to climb over each other and win at life? From dating on a budget to Xeno’s paradox of infinite ramen and gender-confused romance, this series has it all!
Watch it, or I’ll sic Shouko on you.
