Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu OVA Sneaks In Before Season 2

Posted on: August 23, 2010

Yus!Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu fans like me are about to get a veritable smorgasbord of delicious BakaTest over the next year. The comedy series currently has a light novel series, a manga adaptation, two manga spin-offs, and a TV anime under its belt, and every one of those is running strong. Volume 8 of the novel comes out this month, a second TV season is coming in 2011, and now we can add an OVA adaptation to the family!

Kadokawa’s monthly Shounen Ace, which runs the main manga adaptation, just announced that an OVA bridge the first and second seasons of the wondrously stupid series. No details have yet been given, other than that it will be released before the second TV anime starts.

Hopefully, they’ll use this opportunity to get the series a bit more back on track – the first series was charming, but largely ignored the source material. The novels have been an absolute blast so far, and I’d love to see things like the baseball tournament and the haunted house get animated. Those stories are indescribably fun, and they’d make up for a lot of the filler that plagued the first season.

Also: more Shouko, please.

I won't let you get away.

Love hurts. So does comedy, when it's very good comedy.
