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 term?

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

Story:
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

Koi to Senkyo to Chocolate is one of those anime that I wasn't really expecting much from but by the time the curtains closed I had gotten more than I bargained for. Don't you love it when that happens?

THE GOOD:
The story is a simple thing to grasp, it's nothing overly convoluted (Until later that is), it's simply about two childhood friends who are in a club at school that does next to nothing but eat food all day, which is now in danger of being disbanded, thankfully the school election is coming up, so everyone in the club pushes the MC, one Ooshima- I mean 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

Both series has similar character designs and the main male protagonists have similar personalities.

The feeling and atmosphere of both series are also similar and has school life theme involving drama, comedy, romance. And of course, both series has characters of stark personalities.

Anime: Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo
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: 11eyes
The plot is completely different but both have a childhood friend in love with the main character as well as the main character devotion to them, so if you like that sort of romance I would suggest watching both of them. Both have a school setting and uniform.

11eyes: drama, action, violence, supernatural, and romance: this is a little bit more extreme in its romance and violence
- includes more romance than chocolate

Chocolate: drama, romance: this is more about the school club but then concentrates more on romance later in the series
