    An interesting concept wrongfully thrown in the garbage.
    When first marketed for the upcoming Fall 2016 season, I was looking forward to this one. Seemingly amazing art and animation, a hilarious world setup and concept, and somewhat unique character designs.

    However, 2 episodes in, it all falls apart in practice. The classroom is completely glossed over in fantasy battles seemingly taking place in a rocky crater. There's no character development, ...

    Its pitch is better than its execution
    So, in most anime the parts involving the "do not get caught while test", is my favorite (eg soul eater, naruto, etc...) which is why I got excited for this anime. However, those shows are grounded in there way where you know how they are cheating and where their limits are, such as we know ninjas in naruto will use their chakra and soul eater cheating episode is very much character driven and ...

    Failing Its Premises
    I want to give 2.5 stars but can't.

    In my opinion, the first episode is good. It transforms commonly used objects into something imaginative and depicts part of the modern Chinese culture in a funny but sad way. The first episode also gives a premise that would have brought out a painful journey to achieve a goal.

    However, the rest of the show are dull. It follows a simple and repeated ...

  • Short and was ruined by the ending
    Honestly there are so many ways this could have been better done. I was very disappointed at how bad it was. I read the description of the anime and figured it could be an interesting entertaining anime about skills vs knowledge and honestly all I got was a weird mash up of jokes from other things and it didn't flow well at all. I don't recommend it.

  • Couldn't Even Stand the First Episode
    Has a horrible set-up, frankly. The setting and plot was set up terribly, it was just a narrator explaining the universe for like 2 minutes straight right off the bat, not easy following up and keeping interest after that. Then right after was the opening song, so thats like 4 minutes wasted.

  • I'd rather be shot than watch this again.
    This is a 12-episode series at 12 minutes each, it has more proportional filler than Naruto, and will leave you unsatisfied.

    Thanks China...your ability to produce low-quality crap that nobody wants and market it with false advertising is summed up in this show... I try to give anime that was made from a Chinese story a chance and watch the whole series...honestly, I should have listened to my ...

  • *** Confusing Series
    It started off interesting. First 5 episodes were interesting. Then they just lost me. It just just jumped off to some place. Which parts are someone's imagination no idea. Finally the ending was crap. It went of in a tangent and ended in a scream???

    NOT FOR ANIME FANS!!
    To begin, this is the first review I ever post for an anime, and I consider myself to have impeccable taste when it comes to anime choices, so bear with me for a couple minutes.

    This anime is not for fans of anime. I know that sounds weird, but it's just the way it is. The plot is sloppy, there is no real character development, and while the concept in itself was good, what many people call the ...

    Taking exams and need to blow off steam.
    Only watched the first episode of this one. The title “Cheating Craft” sounded interesting, attracted me. This is pure over the top parody of a present obsession with acing the exams to get the best jobs for life in Japan. I am not sure how genuine this phenomenon is in Japan. Do the students with best grades gain exclusive access to the best career positions?

    I do agree that our contemporary ...
