Baka and Test Summon the Beasts

 (TV) (2010)

Baka and Test Summon the Beasts Blu-ray delivers stunning video and audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

At the Fumizuki Academy the standard of equipment a class gets is dependent on test results so the top students in Class A have the most comfortable chairs and a fully equipped classroom and the idiots in Class F have furniture which is so shoddy that it falls apart after a couple of episodes and they are left sitting on the floor and using boxes as desks. In order to encourage the lower classes to improve and to keep higher classes on their toes one class can challenge another to a test where the winner gets the losers furniture. These aren't usual tests; the students summon avatars to battle for them although the strengths of these avatars are related to the strength of those summoning them.

Baka and Test Summon the Beasts Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Baka and Test blasts onto Blu-ray with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.78:1 that is easily one of the brightest and most colorful looking anime pieces in recent memory. This series is simply a riot of bright, graphics-oriented ideas, as if the iconic Saul Bass had eaten a plate of magic mushrooms and let his imagination go just slightly hallucinogenic. As noted above, while character designs aren't especially innovative, they're certainly very, very appealing, and I personally loved the deep emerald green of several of the female characters' eyes. But it's in the weird, suddenly interpolated, graphically oriented elements that this show finds its real distinctiveness, and the Blu-ray represents all of that with stunning clarity and precision. Best of all is the unbelievably varied palette, a palette which just screams with color, whether that be bright primary reds, blues and greens or softer pastel hues in the pink and violet end of the spectrum. Baka and Test is a wonder to behold from a visual perspective, and this Blu-ray release does it full justice.


Baka and Test Summon the Beasts Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

As has been the case with several FUNimation releases lately, Baka and Test: Summon the Beasts has two lossless tracks, the original Japanese language track presented in Dolby TrueHD 2.0, and a very good English dub offered in Dolby TrueHD 5.1. Either of these options has individual elements to recommend them. The original Japanese track, while obviously narrow, has some very inventive voice work and is very well mixed within its narrow confines. The English track is a good deal more robust, however, with lots of ping ponging sonic activity scattered around the surrounds, and a better representation of the series' pop-heavy score. The English voice actors are quite different from the Japanese, and I actually preferred the English Yoshii to the Japanese. Himeji's English voice may be a bit too childlike for some, but it's enjoyable in its own waifish way. Fidelity on both of these tracks is extremely strong, with excellent dynamic range on exhibit throughout.
