Our Baka & Test: Dumbest. Contest. Ever. event has ended. Here is the final winner in the contest.

The last round had a great amount of dumbfounding answers but the winner of Question #3 is Boshima – welcome to Class F!
Question: Choose one of the following vocabulary words, define it, and explain its origin.

  • Bildungsroman
  • Cantankerous
  • Discombobulate
  • Loquacious
  • Panjandrum

Answer:
Cantankerous – A disease that causes one to fail a test. Also known as cantankatest.

Most common symptoms include: shortness of breath, sweating, loss of conciseness, shaking, crying, sleepiness, and the begging of god(s) for help.

Most common side effects: more crying, summer school, extra classes, enraged teacher, loss of life, and may lead to more tests.

It originates in the olden days when our first senpais took the first “assessment of their abilities” and failed them, which has led to the current form called tests that the evil organization adults, better known as A Dangerous and Unbelievably Long Test Society, have created to enslave those who have this disease.

Ex: “I’m not a member of Class F because I’m stupid, I just suffer from Cantankerous…and THE OPPRESSION OF THE ADULTS!!!”

Thank you all who entered. We never knew the bar could go quite that low. Even though there was only room for three new members of Class F you will always be Class F material in our hearts!

If you haven’t had a chance to check out the Baka & Test OVA take a look at the trailer.

synopsis: Class F is back in the Baka and Test – Summon the Beasts: OVA Special Collection! Fumizuki Academy’s popular Refreshing Festival is quickly approaching, and the student body is busy prepping class projects. For Yoshii and the gang, there’s a lot more at stake than showing off for campus visitors. If Class F doesn’t profit from its festival project and buy some new gear for its dumpy room, Mizuki’s parents are going to send her to another school! Of course, even if the slack pack makes some money, they’ll have to win one of the toughest Summoner Test Wars of their lives before they’re allowed to spend it. It’s not going to be easy, that’s for sure. But once the underachievers of Class F get motivated, they don’t give up – and they can’t even spell surrender!

If you missed them there is also Season One (DVD/Blu-ray Combo) and Season Two (DVD/Blu-ray Combo) available now.
