The story from the beginning was meaningless, served as a simple "objective" so that the protagonists had something to base themselves on to move, but if in the middle of the series decide to eliminate that story, well, there is an anime that had started well and began to go in chopped for not having a solid base in which to hold.
The animation is pretty good, not excellent, sometimes flaccid, but the action parts are very lively and that is always appreciated.
The Opening and Ending on their part are also quite good (more the OP than the ED without doubt), the rest of the Soundtrack is there for pure filling and does not stand out at all.

This is a series with an original plot within the simple. If you've already seen this program, you probably already know that it really is not that big. However, have you ever seen another series like this? The answer is probably not, and that's where I feel this anime shines the most.
Anime is supposed to be the genre of artistic imagination, however, we are constantly bombarded with the same concepts over and over again. However, Cheating Craft goes against the norm for being a short, 12-minute parody series that mocks some popular anime concepts with a touch of fun. Each episode contains a comic and dramatic story where all you know is that the main character will somehow fool you to prevail over a test in a dramatic way using Shokatsu's techniques impossibly diverse from your family. It has a linear plot and moves at a great pace towards the sole purpose of living a life of luxury by graduating from its prestigious school.

Cheating Craft is a series of action genres, comedy and shcool. Storywise, It was good at first (ep 1), but it's plot which was themed after the art of cheating was anything but overly exaggerated, that the entertainment side of it starts wane down, I mean, such plot about cheating on An exam simply was not a good fit to use as a plot base, when combined with martial arts, super powers and harem (since there is a subtle rivalry between Koui Ou and Haku Ryu for mumei's affection), the plot based on cheating really Does not fit in with the genre, so yes the plot was really a poor 3.
Art, ok so there is no panty shots that can be seen with any of them eye candies, but it does have one episode that features Ms. Or in a hot swim suit and just this last episode, her in a sexy Qi Pao , And that is a fair enough 6. The rest where just dorky in a fashion sense, like Mumei's pant that's style to be a Chinese pants and him sporting white long arm band, Ms. Or's teacher outfit and her Chung Li's hair style , Kou chan's glasses, Zhou's long hair, Jun's headset and Anri's outfit, where it can be considered a serious crime of fashion. You if only studio Balde could have added a lot of fanservice around here, then maybe this dorky anime could have been saved.

The story from the beginning was meaningless, served as a simple "objective" so that the protagonists had something to base themselves to move, but if they decide to eliminate the story in the middle of the series, what is it? Well, there is an anime that started well and started to go down because of not having a solid base to hold.
After chapter 10 things are more or less calmed down and the series returns to being "decent", they return to stupid fights, to senseless humor, but it is useless to give us just two chapters of humor after the disaster that supposed the Previous five, undoubtedly, was the fattest mistake I found in the series, broke the "basic" structure in which a story must be told or at least show the different parts of it, trying to go from "We are very serious and We tried to wink here and there "and simply ruined a good series.
The animation is quite good, not excellent, at times flaccid, but the action parts are very lively and that is always appreciated.
The Opening and the Ending on their part are also quite good (more the OP than the ED without doubt), the rest of the Soundtrack is there for pure filling and does not stand out at all. It's a shame that this series has ended in something so bad, more, I recommend it, but just looking at chapters 1 to 5 and 10 to 12 or so, the others, in my opinion are not worth it, since Do not count anything and are a simple fill without meaning (stuffed to a series that has chapters of 12 minutes without counting the OP and ED ...)

This anime is short and entertaining and basically a parody on the present competitive education system. I am amazed to see the various cheating techniques used by the c-type students. Good that the episodes say it in writing that 'you will get into big trouble if you cheat on your actual tests'. I am enjoying this series but I also think at the same time that perhaps this might influence kids to cheat. Various methods from artificial skin grafts to drones are used to cheat, converting the classroom into battlefields as C-type students fight it out to get the best from the L-types. I could not watch all episodes serially as it kinda got boring but I loved to watch episodes here and there,especially to see the lengths kids will go to cheat and win. Animation is ok but could be better. Story too could have been better. Idea is good but could not reach full potential.

This series is cool. This first episode highlights the education system of a fictional country but it is in fact what is true for most countries of the world. there is huge competition among children and passing the national special-level university exam. the effort and money put in by parents and children for this exam is huge. And this introduces us to the art of cheating craft or the techniques of cheating. Animation is great, story is unique. I am absolutely captivated by this episode and waiting to watch the next!

A fairly original production these days.
These days full of productions where the school genre and romance abound, Cheating Craft brings with it novel elements, the idea of a reality where the future depends on a test and a wild war to get good grades gives me the feeling of the old comedies where elements Of reality used to be exaggerated in an absurd, funny and highly striking way, with excellent audiovisual elements and very charismatic characters.
I recommend a lot of cheating craft because these days a rather original series, gives a new and crazy perspective to the school genre.
Although this production is short-lived, it has enough time that makes it highly interesting and arouses your curiosity until the last chapter.
In conclusion: I definitely recommend this story a lot.
