If you been following the Isekai stories of Kadokawa, you might know about this series. The short TV animation and a chubby anime Isekai Quartet season 2 is the crossovers of 5 different popular anime, whose novels or manga has been published through Kadokawa. Kono Subarashi Sekai no Sukufuku wo, Overlord, Youjo Senki, Re: Zero and Tate no Yuusha no Nariagari. All the characters from these different series suddenly Isekai’ed by a mysterious switch, which suddenly popped up out of nowhere.
Without any knowledge about this world or how they should return to their world, they will have to live a Scool life along with the other characters.
After stopping the flooding, Kazuma, Aqua, and the Members of Battalion finally got out of the detention. Now that they have joined the class, our heroes have to take care of the new problem, “Test.” But the one that most concerns about the Test are The Great Supreme One of Nazarick “Ainz Ooal Gown.” The fear of failing the Test and losing his status. On the other hand, his subordinates are looking forward to this Test to prove their Honor and to meet Ainz expectations.
On the other hand, being on bad terms with Undead, The Goddess of Water Aqua picks on Ainz in case Ainz thinks Aqua is an idiot. Aqua challenge Ainz to get a better score on the Test than Ainz. As he never graduated from middle School and can’t let himself down in front of his guardians, Ainzs finds himself in a great blunder.
Even Tanya thinks Ainz as a serious and studious person who pays a lot of attention in the class. She even warned Aqua for the competition. Kazuma, on the other hand, suggests her to study so at least she won’t embarrass herself. Tanya invites her for a tutor, but knowing Tanya, She straight refused her.
Everyone made their study group for the preparation of the Test. To help Aqua for her studies, Kazuma took her to Chris, who was helping Felt for her studies. Chris and Felt became friends as they both are thieves from another world.
The day of the Test has finally arrived, and surprisingly the Test was written by Ainz’s creation “Pandora’s Actor,” which a bit tougher for Ainz. Like every rule of the School, if you caught while cheating, you get zero. Kazuma was ready to go for the stealing, but got a warning from Rozawaal “No cheating and No stealing.” And after finding out how some classmates trust Kazuma, he decided not to.
When the Test has begun, Ainz, who studied the whole weak relearning that he learned in his School he still didn’t know a single answer. And the pressure of the people who think higher of him. Ainz decided to go for a cheat and used his 11th Their Magic “Time Stop.” But while he was going to look for the answer, he noticed Aqua is not affected by the time stop. Even though Aqua is dumb, She is The God after all. It was too late for Aqua to notice that everyone has frozen. She took this chance to cheat and went to Kazuma’s place to copy her answers.
But Aqua is not the only one who is not affected by the time stop. While she was copying answers, Tanya, whose place was beside Kazuma, asked Aqua if this is her doing. After finding out Tanya is not affected by the time stop, Ains got shocked, but not only Tanya Subaru too was not affected by the Time Stop.
Ains got shocked by how many people have not affected by the times stop even though in his world, there is barely anyone who can use this Super Their Magic. Looking at how dangerous it can be, he dispelled the magic, and Aqua got caught in cheating. She got zero and sent to Stand in the hallway. He failed to cheat the answers, but he found a way to work things out in the exam, as the marked answers make the face of Pandora’s Actor. And somehow managed to protect his status.
