New Anime Series- Baka to Test to Shokanju Ni

First Episode Review for: Baka to Test to Shokanju Ni

Summary : School anime in which the leading male has a perverted sister who has banned him from making friends with girls, first episode has him and 7 other friends spending time at the beach (sort of like the 7th episode of most plot based anime)

Animation : Bright and colourful, makes a lot of use of manga hash tones (such as filling in the backgrounds with spots) I like the happy floating skulls when the old sister is angry, a fun touch

Plot Potential: None that i could see, short turn puns and quick laughs (that get quite dark by the end of the first episode) seem the order of the day, making this a very low stress anime

Characters: The full range of school types, but with enough variation to provide the odd unexpected action

Music: opening theme good, closing theme less so

Reminds me of: Doki Doki School Hours

Overall: plenty of none explicit innuendo and funny visual puns make this like an anime version of the ‘Carry on‘ movies , nice easy laughs though
