The story revolves around Akihisa Yoshii, being placed in Class F of Umizuki Academy, reserved for students who fail their entrance exams miserably. The academy has a system of encouraging honor students and punishing failures by granting priviliges according to their achievements. While the A Students live in a luxurious environment, the F students lack even basic necessities. Those privileges can be conquered by challenging another class to a battle - yet the creatures summoned to fight these battles are avatars of the actual students with strength scores determined by their test results...

The humour of the series consists of the interaction between the characters in a multitude of bizarre situations and circumstances: Akihisa, who remains oblivious to the fact that he is indeed an utter moron; Minami, childhood friend and Tomboy par excellence with a wide range of painfully effective wrestling techniques; Kouta, passionate voyeur and blessed with a seemingly inexhaustible blood supply; Yuuji, class representative and king of fools with a tendency to bring mischief to everyone but himself; Hideyoshi, constantly unnerved by his androgyny and last but not least Mizuki, the charming and cheerful elite student, being misplaced in a class of idiots due to her being ill during the exams.
The story centers around Akihisa Yoshii, the "baka" of the title. His academy rigidly divides up the student body into classes based on the results of tests. The prodigies are in the A class with reclining seats complete with air conditioning, but Akihisa is in F class, the lowest rung of the school ladder which is furnished only with low, decrepit tables and worn-out straw tatami mats. A girl named Mizuki Himeji is actually one of the smartest girls in Akihisa's sophomore year, but she had a fever on test day and was pigeonholed into the F class. Besides Mizuki (who Akihisa secretly adores), the F class also has Yuuji Sakamoto, the class president who has been Akihisa's friend and partner-in-crime since the freshman year.
The school happens to have developed experiments to summon fantasy creatures, and Akihisa decides to rally F class to take on the higher-tiered classes and seize their perks. The F class uses the summoned creatures in an all-out battle for school supremacy.
Fumizuki Academy is divided into classes ranked based purely on ability; Class A has laptops, reclining seats and ultimate comfort whereas Class F has to settle for a rundown classroom with rotten cushions and rickety coffee tables. Akihisa Yoshii has recently taken the placement exam and finds himself relegated to the lowly Class F along with many of his friends, and they’re far from impressed with their draughty facilities. Luckily, not all is lost as at Fumizuki, classes can declare war on each other to swap rooms by fighting with summoned characters whose strength is based on the users' test scores. As they dream of escaping their decrepit circumstances, the ‘idiotic’ students of Class F will try whatever they can to reach the dizzy heights of Class A’s luxury, even if it means taking on the entire school in an all-out summoning war!
