Plot Summary: In a world where people have been sorted since childhood by exams, only those who excel obtain happiness. L (Learning) Types – who prioritize study – and C (Cheating) Types – those who choose not to study to pass – will battle and team up in tests. C Type protagonist Mumei, and L Type heroine Kōi battle together to pass tests.

First Thoughts: OK, apparently, studying and taking exams is the equivalent of martial arts in this show because man, they go over the top with this shit and I definitely applaud that. From test-fu to shooting pen guns and apparently the fact the exams take place near a river…no, in the MIDDLE OF THE RIVER…you know, something that looks like an episode of Naruto or any martial arts form of media. However, I do hope they go into more than just narration throughout because while I get the first one is telling exposition, I do hope for more of this ridiculous action and all in a 10-minute episode format. Animation-wise, it was alright as I didn’t have any expectations of quality on this and also, there’s an anime studio called BLADE? I didn’t notice that until now.

All right, I can see myself watching this every Wednesday.



I’m MAK2.0 aka The Blue Hybrid, reminding people that you actually shouldn’t cheat on your exams. No, really. Don’t do it.
