It's just not generating the same level of interest. Haruhi, Index, Durarara, OreImo, Monogatari and... IS (>.>) all have crazy numbers when they got their Anime
Well, maybe the fact that this is pure comedy may have something to do with it. Haruhi, Index, Monogatari and Durarara has a unique setting and intricate plot that can be explored, Ore Imo is mostly normal but there's a lot of posts just about the Kirino controversy and bit of a shipping war. Even IS has posts about the mecha and stuff, most of it is Charlotte though.

Problem with Baka Test so far is that it doesn't really offer something new or fresh. The first time there's a lot of talk about the jokes about how Hideyoshi is Hideyoshi, or Shouko tasering or Himeji cooking, but right now we've already talked about it plenty. That's my problem with the last two episodes actually, it's like I've seen the jokes before so it got kinda old, I'm hoping it will change when we get back to school. The refreshing part was just Aiko.

Indeed, it's not surprising BakaTest is less popular than all those other Light Novel series considering it's only comedy, but I am still a bit puzzled by the decrease in posting here. This might have to with the lack of novelty as you said. Even I have to admit there isn't a lot to discuss so far, since it's just been more of the same. Still, I would have thought more people would have commented on the first episode at least.

In BakaTest's case, more of the same is fine by me, I haven't tired of the jokes yet. Hell, I could watch an entire episode about Shouko tasing people.

-We have a story about everyone freaking out when Himeji and Akira started a blackpot.
-We have a story about everyone summoning their summoned beasts that can depict their own thoughts.
-And most impressively to me, we have an entire volume of class F + Shouko chasing after Akihisa and Yuuji.

The jokes start to diversify in later volumes, but one thing that has never changed is crossdressing...

Well, speak of the devil.

Funi finally got the first two episodes up today.

Capsule Capsule Review

That's the thing I like about Shaft and the pseudo-Shaft style of Shin Oonuma. Come the second/third/whatever season, it picks right up where things left off. If it weren't for the change in OP and ED, the style and everything else carries over flawlessly from where we last left off. And with the first episodes forming a sort of vacation mini-arc, watching them back to back (accounting for a break in the middle of the beginning of episode 2) was a good idea. The yukata contest was the standout. The universe always makes things go right when it would be perfect for them to go wrong.

I like that they finally got to the flashback story. Could have done without the fuzzy black haloing.

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.

I can't tell if Yuuko is getting dere towards Yoshi or to Hideyoshi (personally, I'd prefer towards her twin, so maybe we can get some HOT twincest)

It have to due more to 1st Season totally diverging from the novel...the novel itself is super-popular even before the anime (It's also one of the best selling LN out there...)

But since the anime is completely original, it just makes people stop caring...

For the novel itself - it's just that for English speaking people, you can't easily find translated version...(Japanese text can be find with some effort on Google search...there's Chinese translations but not many people can read that...)

On episode 3 - Well, 1st part I just keep on laughing and laughing and laughing. That IS some crazy voice-acting by Emiri Kato...2nd part is long due, explaining the backstory behind Hazuki and Akihisa (And to lesser extent, the beginning of feelings for Minami and Himeji).

That is so immoral! We don't need another Yosuga no Sora here!

..........

Nvm. I cast my vote in support of twincest.

It's twincest to the audience but playing with herself for Katou Emiri. xD

Speaking of the twincest pairing, I think the HideYuuko pairing is actually the predominant pairing in terms in ff for fanfiction.net, even if they are oneshots. I may even write one in the future.

I bought my copy of the first season yesterday. I'm hoping Funi starts streaming this season soon.

Shouko is still my favorite girl here (and one of my favorite characters period), but this show needs more Aiko--kinda nice to have a non-psycho girl in this bunch.

guys, enough of your delusions, this is a gag series. wake up.

and like what ion475 said, I actually don't really care much, and never watch it fresh since they have their original development sewed with some jokes from the series, and they have to take subject matter from the .5 volumes. they should really just do this properly. my favorite parts in the series is always Yuuji and Akihisa betraying each other and the Shouko yandere.

Well, kind of. Ep 1-2 were roughly based on vol 1. 3-5 were filler, 6-7 were from Vol 3.5, 8 was filler, 9 was vol. 5, 10-11 was back to vol. 1 (sort of), and the rest are all filler. OVA episodes were roughly based on Vol 2. And I haven't watched the second season yet...

A bit of a spoiler here:
