When will we get Baka and Test Season 3? That is the question that fans want to know the answers to. We are still wondering if the series will get its conclusion or not. It is not surprising because it’s been ten years since we last saw the anime television series.
Baka and Test, or Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu, is an anime adaptation based on the light novel of the same name. The series is written by Kenji Inoue (Grand Blue) and illustrated by Yui Haga.
Enterbrain first published the light novel in 2007, with a total of 18 volumes. They also released three manga adaptations, published under Famitsu Comic Clear and Shounen Ace.
Silver Link (Our Last Crusade or the Rise of a New World & The Ones Within) adapted the series into anime in 2010. The first season aired between January 7 and March 31, listed with 13 episodes. We then got another season in 2011, also listed with 13 episodes. The sequel is called Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu Ni.
Some may argue that two seasons are plenty, but it is not enough for fans of the series. So, will it get another season? Or Baka and Test Season 3 will never happen? Here is everything we know about the series.
Will there be Baka and Test Season 3?
We won’t count it out yet, but there are some problems that we need to discuss. First, just like any series that we ever mentioned before, we need to look at the source material. The light novel ended in 2015 with a total of 18 volumes. The main story is compiled in 12 volumes, while the rest is a side story.
Some sources said that the anime adapted most of the books, but is it true? Before the second season premiered, the series had already published 11 volumes. However, after the last episode of the second season, Kenji Inoue released five more books. Five volumes might seem low, but we think that it is plenty enough to be covered in Baka and Test Season 3.
A Reddit user, zikari8, also made a comparison between the anime and the light novel. The user claims that most episodes of the first season were anime original. However, it was different for the second season, which adapted the books until volume 7,5.
So, there you go, the light of hope for Baka and Test Season 3.
Baka and Test Season 3 Release Date
As you can guess, there is no official announcement about the release date of Baka and Test Season 3. We have already given you some good news, so it is time to inform you of the bad news.
Ten years are pretty long for a series to get another season. The chance is not zero, but it is almost impossible. So unless there is a miracle and Silver Link retakes the project in the future, we probably won’t see the third season. Well, we can hope that it gets the same treatment as Full Metal Panic, a series that got its third season more than a decade later after the last episode of the second season.
Plot of Baka and Test
The story follows Akihisa Yoshii, a student known as an idiot boy in terms of his academic skill. He attends Fumizuki Academy, a unique school that divides its student based on their academic scores. The higher your score in an exam test, the higher class and better benefits that you will get. In Akihisa’s case, as you can guess, he is stuck at the bottom and the worst class, Class F.
Unsatisfied with his study environment, Akihisa, with the help of his classmates, seeks to take the higher class. However, he needs to take a particular test in Fumizuki Academy called Examinations Summon Battle to achieve his goal. In this special test, the student can summon a fantasy character whose power comes from the general test scores. Thus begins Akihisa and Class F’s battle to rise to the top.
