SynopsisIn 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?

Characters & Voice Actors
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 the 1st ep just cracks me up. I won't go into those spoiler details but I can say, I immediately got hooked by this anime. At that moment I knew that this is my destined one. I give HUGE credits to anime which can piqued my interest this much right in the first episode, only a few could do this to me. eg. Sakurasou.
Anyway, this anime is based on a VN, and from the past few years anime adopted from VN hadn't been satisfying. I wouldn't say its bad, but a lot of them are rushed or just focused on the wrong heroine - for example: Angel Beats, I mean I love AB a lot, I cried watching its last few eps too, but overall it just felt a bit rushed. It left a lot of things unexplained i guess.
However, I believe this is adaptation had done an excellent job.I think it had a pretty steady pace. At least, I didn't feel its rushed, like AB does. So, I think it did a great job here.
Well, here the good part. We have a very diverse and intriguing character casts here. They all have different personalities and motives and such that it didn't feel like they are cardboard cut out characters or at least most of them.
I mean we have have 2 oppai girls ( Shinonome Satsuki, Shinonome, Hazuki)
A super kawaii pentako (Michiru Morishita)
A bit annoying tsundere, childhood friend girl (Sumiyoshi Chisato)
A kouhai full of feels (Aomi Isara)
At last, but not least the ultimate, always cumming yaoi kouhai (Yumeshima Oboro) "Senpai, I want your stick!"
With these characters, I bet you're gonna have a lot of fun watching this anime. The reason why I love this anime is because of its diverse characters. The interaction between the characters intricately weaved out the whole story. Most of the characters have been explained properly, and have pretty well development. Moreover, it totally didn't feel as confusing as Angel Beats were (in the last few episodes :/ ) . Everything nice and good.
Well, I don't have much to say about Koichoco's art. The animation was fluent and clear, nothing super fancy extravagant like Fate Zero or Kara No Kyoukai, but I was satisfied with it. It's got a bright colour and overall gave a cheerful atmosphere. It kinda feel like Amagami SS i guess.....
I am not much of a soundtrack guy, so I will keep it short.
Sound is good. Voice-acting good too. OP & ED good good.
After watching Koichoco, it lifted my mood a lot and I really really enjoyed it, I don't know why it is so under-rated but I think it should rank higher and more people should be watching this.
I recommend this to anyone who are looking for a good romance, comedy. And I promise, you're gonna laugh so much in the first ep (at least, I did)
I think you guys to give this a shot, you might be surprised. :)
I hope this review helped you and that you guys would like Koi to Senkyo to Chocolate :3
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 a rather large private school, composed of about 9999 (or all of the 9's you can imagine for a single number) students, and thus, the student council is taken pretty seriously. You could say that the students themselves are the ones who rule this academy. It's kind of an utopic school, where the democracy has a huge roll and it's executed perfectly.
Enter our main character, Yuuki Ojima: A rather lazy student who attends to this school and belongs to the "food research" club that does virtually nothing more than eating. He belongs to it just because there's something that tells him that he must be in a club, and of course, to be with his childhood friend, Chisato Sumiyoshi.
As the student council gets serious about clubs literally wasting and throwing money away in order to keep doing nothing, our main characters and the rest of the club decide to protect it, and the only way is that one of them becomes the council student president.
As our main character becomes more and more popular every time because of the elections, he starts to realize that there's a lot more to do than saving his own club. He starts to develop selfless-ness, and he becomes some sort of a pro-active guy, caring about what happens around him, leaving his laziness behind. And this is where the well executed drama (specially with his childhood friend, Chisato) begins.
I never thought I'd say this about an anime, but there's a honorable mention that I want to give to the comedy aspect. which was not abused nor it was totally absent either. Somehow they put this when the times were right and it helps you release some tension that the story builds up as it progresses. It just comes naturally, and even if you dont think it's funny, it helps you to recover your pace and catch some air. Alright i'm exaggerating :D
I give the story a solid 8, as it has different "areas" where it develops itself, but it does in a pretty convincing fashion, without losing any of its focus.
I would say 12 episodes weren't enough, as the development kind of required some more depth to it. However, I think pretty much everything was very well executed plot-wise. Nothing was rushed nor over-extended either.
The characters, as I mentiones before, are nothing that blow your imagination away, for they are these archetypical characters. However, the characters' development is notably one of the strong point of this anime. It was really good to see these people not hesitating to take mature decisions to support the ones they care about, as well as leaving some stuff about their regretable past behind. When you start do develop some sort of love/hate relationship with one or more characters, that's the moment you will know they were well executed and have an impact.
The art in this anime was ok. it reminded me a lot of Amagami SS, specially on the characters design (although this aspect is a little more exagerated in Koi to Senkyo). Everything was pleasant to see and is well detailed too.
When it comes to the sound, i found it awesome for an anime of this type. I was really immersed into the general feeel and atmosphere of each scene because of the background music solely. It really invites you to become one with the plot.
Voice acting was also good enough. Not outstanding, but it was well done for my taste. Emotions were convincing.
I would say that I enjoyed this wayy much mure than I thought I would, even if the three first episodes were full of "OMFG not this again". If it catches you from that moment, you will not be able to stop it. Even tho some of the arcs were over the top, it made me experience a lot of empathy towards the characters. I recommend you to give this one a try and see where it takes you :D
Anime that feature clubs that to normal students serves no purpose but for the actual club members serves as a place to belong. Both Anime also have a nice style.
both of those anime placed on a school and most of the club members are girls and same studio.
The same old one male in the group of girls in a club. Well in Boku wa tomodachi, Yukimura was a girly guy and in Koi to Senkyo to Chocolate, Oboro doesn't look like much of a guy. But both of these animes have all of the girls like the main protagonist. The whole anime is about a club that everyone in it loves.
Both series takes place at a school setting where a group of friends forms a club/student council.
Both series contains a lot of drama, comedy, and some romance.
Both series' main protagonist also has similar personalities as someone who wants to help his friends. Speaking of which, the main protagonist also interacts with other characters (mainly female) in both series.
Both have a club setting, school harem, and similar MCs.
Harem, Romance, Comedy, School & Club
one male and many girls.......
is pretty much the same but i like Senkyo to Chocolate's art better.....
The story takes place in the club room discussing about trivial questions, strategies, or just a chat down for some free time. Similarity wise, it has that school romantic dramedy feel where it focuses on the main male character interacting with the other club members with the majority of them being girls. There are serious moments, and some funny moments, and better yet relationships is another element in the story.
1) Both Series Main Characters Are In A Club
2) Both Are In Harem Genre
3) Both Clubs Serve No Purpose To Anyone But The Members Of The Club
4) Both Are School Romantic Comedy Anime
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.
Don't know why but Chocolate really remind of Amagami SS, probably because there's one arc in SS is about school election and Yuuki really remind of the MC from Amagami SS, both series is about Highschool romance so if you like one you'll probably like the other
Both are love stories whose story is somewhat connected to someone's past.
Amagami ss is in Arcs/Hen while Koi to Senkyo to Chocolate is a whole anime not built up on arcs/hen.
Though personally i think Amagami ss is cuter when it comes to the love part while Koi to Senkyo to chocolate is slow in love development
Both have the same art work
However, Amagami SS is a harem whilst Koi to Senkyo to Chocolate is more of a plot type. For all the Haruka Morshima fans (Amagami SS) be prepared for Satsuki Shinonome from Koi to Senkyo to Chocolate - They both look the same
