Synopsis

In Japan, participation in extra-curricular activities is as fundamental a part of an education as chalk and gym shorts. However, not all students are overachievers, and for those like Yuki Ojima, groups like the Food Research Club are welcome havens in which to slack-off. But what's a slacker to do when the radical new candidate for Student Council president announces her intent to get rid of clubs like the FRC? Well, getting the help of the current Student Council president is a good start, but HIS suggestion is so counter-intuitive that it's crazy: Yuki should run for the Student Council himself? And yet, it's SO crazy that it just might work! Especially when Chisato, the chocolate-adverse president of the FRC (and Yuki's best childhood friend,) and members of other targeted school clubs start to join the swelling FRC army. But can this army of goofs and goof-offs coast all the way to political victory? Or will someone have to step up to the plate and take one for the team?

Hey, you ever been to a party and noticed that there is all the food you want in the world but somehow, some way it just doesn't satisfy you? That's sort of the same feeling I got when I finished watching this series. No, I don't mean it in a way that is unsatisfying. I mean it as the series missing something. Like the chocolate is missing an ingredient or the series itself is lacking something. However, Koi to Senkyo to Chocolate does have some of its good flavors. So, let's break this down, shall we?

At first, I was trying to find some mediocre romance comedy harem anime, which can give me tons of boobs and laugh for example, Ichiban Ushiro no Dai Mao or Hagure Yuusha no Aesthetica to name a few. I mean it's Christmas now, and I am still single, watching anime at home. All by myself.......... I needed anime to comfort me. :(
Anyway, I then came across this oddly under rated anime Koi to Senkyo to Chocolate :3

At first glance, the plot might be one of your normal, slice of life school anime. I first thought so too, but then read more

To start of Koi to Senkyo to Chocolate looks like your typical slice of life anime where the club is having problems. However, this one is different because it incorporates 3 elements that I feel make it unique or special. The first element that I liked was the drama because on the outside you have the typical slice of life vibe, but once the action gets going especially towards the end that is where drama is released. Dialogue is the second element that makes this Koi to Senkyo to Chocolate different because with having presidential elections one would expect to have a lot of dialogue read more

Love, Elections and Chocolate. I think that's the textual english translation for this title. And it pretty much sums the whole anime up. That's it for this review, see you in the next one! :D

That's what I would really had liked to say because of the first impression this anime gave me. It has all the elements that make it look like your typical harem - slice of life - high school anime. It even has all of the archetypical characters, and most of them have to be female, of course. However, this anime achieves a lot more than what you might think.

The setup is read more

Some dose of romance and drama. Well-balanced in both series.
In both series, there is a group of students that fight to protect something.
Both series give off similar warmth.

Anime: Angel Beats!
if angel beats combine action and sol/drama but you want some extra romance, then koi choco would be a great choice. since it combine sol/drama with a lot of love. but less action though...

Anime: Hyouka
Both Anime are based around school clubs that are at the risk of disbanding at various. The clubs are places where people really do nothing majorly important either.
