The protagonist is a guy who is among the stupidest of the stupidest in the school. In this school your grades can, under the supervision of teachers, take a virtual form to do battle! However, if you leave an examination midway, you get zero marks. A bright and cute girl, Mizuki Himeji, had a high fever during her examination. Despite her potential to be the second highest scorer in the level, she obtained zero marks for having left due to her illness and is thus banished to the worst class, Class F.
Grades mean nearly everything. For Class A: They have a smart-looking teacher, a plasma TV as big as the entire wall as their blackboard, personal laptops, personal air-conditioners, refrigerators, adjustable seats and all kinds of different appliances. Within the refrigerator, there are all kinds of drinks and snacks. Their ceiling is made of glass, the wall lets them put up high-class drawings and plants.
As for Class F (the worst class): They have Japanese desks and seat paddings. Their blackboard is dirty and there's even no chalk! Someone complains the legs of his desk are broken, so the teacher asks, "Didn't we distribute some glue to stick wood together? Glue it back yourself later." Another one complains the wind is blowing in from the broken window. The teacher says, "I got it. I'll apply for plastic bags and super-glue to fix it later." There are spider webs everywhere, not a patch of the wall is clean. A unique moldy smell spreads across the entire room; it must be from the old tatamis used to tile the floor. Welcome to Class F.
The protagonist feels displeased at such an arrangement; he seeks help from his friends to try to make a change through invoking war! And they devise all kinds of plans to try to beat the famous Class A, scheming to get Class A's classroom and equipment if they win.

I loved this series its the perfect pick me up when your feeling down and its the perfect catalyst to make you super happy when you're already happy. But as ZL11 said in her comment. This is not something you go into if you're looking a deep story. And I also agree that the girls are super violent, not just in this manga but in a lot of series (especially harems) there are those VERY violent gals. Gets tiresome after a while. =3=

This is a RANDOM manga. If you're looking for a strong, cohesive plot, look away. This isn't it. The boys are super silly and the girls are violent. The boys are my favorite, since they're unrepentant pervs and punish any one successful with girls. The girls are a bit annoying to me. They're seriously violent about EVERYTHING, it's their first response to 99% of situations. The "summon battles" are interesting in a way, since testing score determine your battle capability. But, this is not a manga for most people. It's not Cromartie HS or Azumanga Daioh, but a bit more like Morinaga Ai's works... well, except with less of a core story. This has a lot of cross dressing, peeping, homosexual humor, shonen-ai, shoujo-ai, and even some loli for good (random) measure. The anime is also funny (although I really don't know why ALL the women are super violent).

The character design for the main character is horrible. Let's get that straight. His hair is a mess. But the artist has talent and the lines are clean and the rest of the characters look great.

However, the pacing of the story is bad. Instead of easing into the story, everything is introduced at once. Everything moves too fast, there isn't time to sit and digest and connect with the characters. And the premise is quite silly too.

If you're bored, read this. But let me tell you there are way better wacky school concept manga series better than this.

If you like those comedy with a school setting then this one's for you to read. It also has certain positive elements which I didn't find in any comedy mangas I've read. This manga will surely bursts you into tears from laughter.

Manga's better so far.

The manga has been quite good. It has a fair balance of humor and combat though it is a bit slow on character development. The art's competent but doesn't stand out much from the crowd. The primary things that draw readers are the battle wars which rely on clever strategies instead of brute force.

The anime started out great but its quality dipped steadily. They basically butchered and crammed the nine initial chapters of the manga into episode 11. Some violence is slightly toned down but the fanservice has been amped up. That said, you get to know the characters a lot better than in the anime though I cannot say whether either depictions accurately reflects the original light novel. The art, sound and animation quality is top notch in the anime.

The concept is interesting in itself and the art is crisp, not too much detail. But this manga made me laugh out loud several times through its art and just hilarious concepts in general. I thought this would be a waste of my time, but it has made me a fan, not through its plot, but its funny situations and the main character is an idiot who is hilarious.

I tried starting to read it, but I didn't get halfway through the first chapter. The art's not bad at all, but the storyline doesn't seem very interesting from what I've read. .... but then again, maybe it's just me. What I don't like might not be what someone else doesn't like. Plus, it could improve within the next chapters. I wouldn't know. But for me, judging from the beginning... it doesn't seem very appealing. The main character seems pretty mediocre, and not even a very interesting mediocre, at that.

But yeah. The art isn't bad.

There is just one chapter out, but I had read some of the Light novel, and so I can tell it's a pretty interesting manga. The adaptation is quite good, and it's quite nicely done too.

What is this about? Just to make you more curious I would tell you to find out by yourself laugh
