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
This is the anime you're looking for if: You like slice of life animes but with some twists and drama. It may seem light and funny at firtst, but towards the second half it gets more serious in a really enjoyable way.
What I liked about this anime:
- The character development was really well handled for most characters. I would say it is the main thing going on in this anime.
- The humour and drama were well balanced. It started off as nice and made me laugh sometimes, but once the drama started to kick in it got me really interested.
- The slow development at first (I would say nothing really happens before the second half) made me care about the characters and want to know more. It may not be an action-packed anime from start to end, but you actually care about what happens later on the story, something some animes lack.
What I disliked about the anime:
- It started off with a really slow pace to be replaced by episodes full of action and I felt like that part was rushed. This anime should have had 25 episodes to really tell the story well
- Because it is so short, some things like a deeper look in the main character's past were overlooked and I would have liked to know more. There are a lot of great characters in this anime and it's a shame we couldn't learn more about them.
- There was some fanservice in this serie and I feel like it didn't need to have it. It was kept to a minimal though.
Overall: I really enjoyed this anime. I found it didn't go deep enough for some parts because of its shortness, but other than that it was really fun. It is a good mix between slice of life, action, drama and including a lot of characters. 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 to present their points or objectives. the third element which is comedy incorporated well since it was kept at a minimal level and mostly done from the side or supporting characters.
Story: The story was ok, but I feel like it was rushed. There was some parts during the story that just felt ignored or not fully explained. Still what makes the story have a higher score is the drama part because it is nicely done. The last couple of episodes really make up for the lack of drama at first. Comedy wise that didn't hurt the story, and the characters all brought the story together even more.
Sound: The OP and ED are very nice and worth watching every time. Not much to say here besides saying that during those serious scenes the background music really enhances the scene even more. The main song that is the highlight of this anime is the song played by one of the characters who use a harmonica.
Character: The score really doesn't reflect on most of the characters but rather on some of them. Chisato from my perspective had a very complex personality that helped relate or understand her. Michiru another character is one that I liked the most based on how she behaved. Her appearance really makes her stand out from the rest of the characters because she carries that mysterious presence whenever scene shows her by herself pondering.
Enjotment/Overall: I sure wish this anime had a second season because some things could be explained better there, and it would be nice to see maybe time skips of how the school is doing as well. Overall I really enjoyed Koi to Senkyo to Chocolate and the ending really helped bring the number up even more. Despite the low passing score that the story has the characters make up for that and really help make the anime worth watching. the comedy also made me burst into laughter at times so that also incorporated into the overall score.
I'd say for those who want to watch an anime that will make you laugh, yet have a serious tone then Koi to Senkyo to Chocolate is one to watch. Just be prepared for the moderate dialogue. Other than that I will sure remember this anime and the amazing characters it had.
Hopefully you all found my review helpful and I hope you all like Koi to Senkyo as well. read more
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
