*Hekiou Academy Student Council Meeting Log*
“… I am Kaicho (president), I am KaichoO! By the way, does the president do anything?” – excerpt from episode 11’s ending theme.
What happens when four pretty girls and one handsome guy spend most of their school time everyday in a confined room? Naughty thoughts aside, if you were thinking “oh my god, not another harem” then you were right! Seitokai no Ichizon is NOT a harem, strictly speaking (though our male protagonist tries very hard to make it so). In reality the poor dude gets bully by his female mates more than he ever deserves. So who might this anime be good for? If you are looking for a parody that pokes fun at itself and the entire anime industry in general, then Seitokai no Ichizon will surely meet and most likely exceed your expectation! In fact not only does it do a good job with the too-frequent parodies, but with high quality animation, and impressive new ending themes every episode, Seitokai no Ichizon is a great anime for all ages.
The story of Seitokai no Ichizon centers around the everyday “adventure” of the student council in Hekiyou Gakuen high school. Its setting primarily consists of one place, the student council room, although exceptions do occur in the show from time to time. Now you must be wondering, what can a show that limits itself to one cramped room has to offer? Surprisingly the answer is, plenty. With plenty of jokes and plenty of parodies targeted at other recent well known anime, there is never one boring moment in the show for viewers to complain about. Even if the story itself does not attract the viewers enough due to its random episodic events, but by combining the story with the character interactions, nice consistent animation, superb voice acting, and addictive soundtracks and theme songs, Seitokai no Ichizon has some of the deadliest combination to make it stand on its own ground.
It was interesting for the characters to repeatedly admit that “nothing ever happens” in their show. And yet they never fail to entertain the viewers with what they can do to make the show appealing solely by chatting. In fact, it is hard to judge these characters in any normal anime standard because they are out of the ordinary. As the casts themselves have put it, “This is where we end after airing twelve episodes? … The main character is supposed to mature after a time (but) … nothing changed.”. They poke fun at their own lack of character growth, but in actuality most characters have had their fair share of developments through learning about each others’ past or family problems. The characters certainly made a positive impact to the overall success of Seitokai no Ichizon due to their unpredictability.
The animation is nothing but greatness. The characters are very nicely designed and even the one and only classroom is very detailed in design with a large variety of decorations and hidden rooms. Fluid scene to scene transition, consistent high quality animation, and a great choice of “scenery” also made Seitokai no Ichizon very attractive to the eyes. Additionally, comedic-like faces on the characters whenever a random chat start appearing also helps crack people up. The animation definitely is another strong point that makes up for the lack of story.
At first I was very skeptical with the seiyu in this show because all the main female leads are apparently voiced by rookies. Yes, they are ALL rookies. New to the anime industry, these female seiyu all tried exceptionally hard to make themselves stand out as a bright star. Unfortunately they were all excellent in voicing their roles so I could not say who seem to be the most talented (unlike in other shows where one can clearly tell some seiyu just don’t go well with the particular role at all). It is, however, quite clear that these voices bring life to the characters in the series and bring entertainment to the viewers.
Special honorary mention goes to the ending themes. Whether they are good or not, one must admit it was creative of the producers to make a unique ending song (same rhythm different lyrics) for each episode thus resulting in a total of TWELEVE ending themes. Even without the lyrics (and I strongly urge you not to miss them), the songs in itself is tremendously addictive. In fact, I could dance around my room all day with the song set on repeat in my computer. The opening, while less catchy, is still very pleasant to hear and once again it showed us the talents these new seiyu possess.
Seitokai no Ichizon is a wonderful addition to the anime industry and made itself stood out among the mist of millions of other similar anime largely due to its parody at poking fun at itself and everything anime-related. The jokes are never too old or too repetitive throughout the show and the references are relatively simple to grasp (provided you are semi-familiar with recent anime). Keep in mind the show is made in Japan and is intended for Japanese viewers who most likely have a more knowledgeable database of the anime series in Japan than we do. If you don’t seem to be able to spot a parody or two in an episode, chances are, you have already missed out on some of the jokes they are making fun of. In that case, you should reconsider whether to continue watching the series or not. Lastly I would recommend anyone who have trouble at school, whether it is your grade or having trouble making friends, to try playing love simulation games (ie. harem games)! read more
Seitokai no Ichizon is a parody anime, so, therefore, it would make a lot of sense for me to try to fit in as many references as I can because, why not?
Story: The story of Seitokai no Ichizon revolves around 5 people who exist in a school that determine their student council via a popularity contest. Because of that, they are usually good-looking girls. The fifth member is always the person who scores highest on a midterm. And so, with 4 girls and a guy, what's going to ensue? HAREM! or not. With this in mind, the plot of this anime doesn't really go anywhere. In fact, it goes nowhere. But, for an anime that purely focuses on its characters and comedy, plot really has no need to exist, so yeah. Think about it like "Lucky Star" or "Love Hina" if you will.
Characters: For the main characters, we have, as I have stated before, 4 girls and a guy. Ken Sugisaki as literally the only guy in this anime is well, a pervert. Constantly playing h-games and trying to set "flags" on the girls like Keima, his only goal in this anime is to not date one of said girls, but to create his own "harem ending", which basically means that he wants every girl to love him, without actually dating them. This goal came along with the motivation to actually get into the student council and meet said girls. Similar to animes like Love Hina, the world god only knows, and Nyarko-san. (They all have a harem ending sort of deal). However, this character has a more, softer side to him. After they finish pissing about in an episode, he always accomplishes the work that they were supposed to do together, by himself. Showing that he in fact wants the girls to be happy. Next, Kurimu Sakurano. As the lolita of the series, she is the oldest of the group, being a third year in high school. As the student council president, she makes sure everyone is doing their job and no one is slacking of-hahahaha! I can't go through with it. Being the smallest and most child-like of the group, she basically acts like a 7-year old. To summarize her briefly, she has a sweet tooth, she's child-like, she's horrible at school, and she's self conscious about her body. Not really much else to say. Next, Chizuru. As the most "sadistic" one of the group, she bears resemblance to Mikako from Sora no Otoshimono, as they are both insane! Thinking about world domination and possessing Kurimu as a servant, she truly is the most "evil" one out of the bunch. It should also be noteworthy that she has a Death Note with her. Next, Minatsu. To put it short, Sports, fighting manga, aggressive attitude. As the tomboy of the group, she has is basically who she is. Not too many characteristics with her. And finally, Minatsu's sister, Mafuyu. As the youngest member of the student council, she possesses incredible game knowledge and doesn't really possess much of a personality other then being shy talking to guys. As a master of games as she is, she constantly works on blogs for game strategies and love yaoi. Yes, yaoi. All these characters are very one-sided with very little character growth. The side characters really have no purpose other then pose a problem or move the story along.
Art and sound: The character designs in this anime a incredibly well done due to how fine detailed they are. Because the school outfits have ruffles in them, it's very plain to see how precise the creators are when it comes to designing them. As for sound, well, it's definitely good to listen to, but not really anything to get stuck in your head. The OP has a sort of somber feel to it which is very off putting because of how energetic this show actually is. It doesn't really fit. The ending however has a comedic chibi art style and is quite energetic, but not as much as it should. In short, the soundtrack sounds good, but not as memorable as it can be.
Personal Enjoyment: As a harem fan, I was pleasantly surprised on how this show would turn out. In fact, it surpassed my initial expectations with the idea of a harem only being in one person's head, which is actually pretty funny. The comedy in this is slapstick to a certain degree, with Japanese humor which sometimes, people don't get. It's always funny to see the lead male get mistreated to the point of actually feeling sorry for him for suffering the abuse he gets from the girls, i.e. getting thrown into a cramped locker so the he wouldn't see the girls in swimsuits. They sometimes break the fourth wall which is usually pretty entertaining. i.e. the fact that they have an anime in the first place, and trying to change their characters via a sentence ending. Ex. Squid girl's "de geso." While this show has many references that entitle it to being a parody anime, it sort of loses its touch with the amount of references it shows. Sure, there're a bunch in the first few episodes, with its first "opening" in the first episode being lucky star, but to me, there should've been more references/episode. Another turn off for me was the addition of plot. As a comedy anime, there shouldn't be any plot whatsoever. But the thing is, the anime tries to take itself seriously for 2-3 episodes and make it seem like an actual story. To me, a comedy should just be pure mindless humor, and the addition of trying to make a plot just made it lose its touch. But nonetheless, it is interesting to delve into the minds of these characters and see if there were any ties, which there are, but it doesn't really all come together as nicely as it could've. In any case, Seitokai no Ichizon is a hilarious little short anime that almost lives up to the parody name, and I would suggest to watch it if you want to just kill time. read more
Both are about a Student Council with all girls save one boy, whom they are often giving a hard time.
Both revolve around a male student in the student council. The only difference is that in Ichizon, the male has dirty thoughts and with Yakuindomo, the girls have dirty thoughts.
The two anime's are rather similar to each other because they both deal with a funny Student Council , where all the members are girls except for one guy. And the comedy in it is mostly the student council talking about stuff.
one of the big differences in this is that in Ichizon they show more ecchi scenes whereas in Yakuindomo they talk about ecchi stuff .
i enjoyed both of them allot and i think that if you liked Ichizon you'll probbly like Yakuindomo
A Student Council with all girls and one guy, but the only difference is that in Sitokai no Ichizon, the guy actually wants a harem while in Seitokai Yakuindomo, the guy tries to avoid being in a "harem"
Harems and student counsels
Both about the student council. In No Ichizon the guy is always thinking of perverted things but, in Yakuindomo it's all the girls that think of the perverted stuff
Both series are about Student council with one guy and girls
The plot is similar with joke and some parodies, perhaps some dumbness of the student council's president as well
Both focus on a Student Council for a school. Both have 1 boy in the Student Council who are both the vice president
Pervy Student Councils are fun. Oh so very fun. Main difference is where the "perv" is in each seires. Seitokai no Ichizon has a pervy male, Seitokai Yakuindomo has pervy females. Did I mention they both have lolis? Both situations, the male suffers |D
its both fun. but yakuindomo is more adult .
Both have stories set in the school counsel, with 1 guy and many girls, many anime parodies, sex talk (the male in Ichizon, all the girls in Yakuindomo). Ichizon has fewer ero jokes and slightly more plot, but otherwise the two are very similar
Both anime are comedies involving student council, but are not purely about what the group does. Both anime are joke based. 'Seitokai no Ichizon' being a parody style anime with jokes about harems, while 'Seitokai Yakuindomo' is a comic-strip style anime with jokes that are explicit and sexual in nature.
Essentially the same series with the gender reversed. Both series premises are held in the student council and both are light-hearted comedic series.
Student Councils, both involves a guy surrounded by beautiful girls etc. :)
Both of them take setting in student council, with only one male student and some girl students. While Yakuindomo focus on dirty jokes and slapstick, Ichizon got some nice parodies and a little romance in it.
not exactly same, since Seitokai no Ichizon contains harem portion, but if you want to watch jokes...
Main male characters in both series are the sole male member in their respective student council. Though surrounded by high-spec girls, both characters have to deal with the teasing and problems in their student council life.
Tone down the perverse nature a tad
Have the male protagonist being perverted
Add more girls
and you have Seitokai no Ichizon.
If my brief description was not enough to convince you, at least watch an episode or two so you can decide for yourself.
Both are sitcoms featuring a boy in an all-girl student council with no particular plot and random jokes
Student council + harem + a lot of comedy
Well it has the same similar settings as the main character. It has the same overall feel and atmosphere of the animes. Both animes are really funny and easy to get into.
Seitokai no Ichizon seems to have a more parody like comedy with well re-used jokes. There is a lot more moe in this anime as well.
Seitokai Yakuindomo has more comedy based on mature "things" but its still nonetheless friggen hilarious.
They both have a female-dominant cast. They both take place in a student council. They both have "Seitokai" in their names.
Both have LOL moments. In both, the male protagonist was part of the Student Body Council for different reasons. And the female cast for both love to mess around and make jokes. In a way, the Student Body Council sometimes takes there work seriously and the other times, have fun like the teenagers they are. Seitokai no Ichizon has more drama, and Seitokai Yakuindomo has more comedy with mature jokes XD
Cute girls in school comedy, the same sense of homour and a lot of parody.
Being a parody show, seitokai no ichizon is made with the full awareness of lucky star. The first episodes steals a few screens from lucky star as the show is fully expecting the viewers to cross over. To not have seen LS is to miss the very language of the show and its references.
Cute girls and it parodies other anime.
Both are parody and reference anime. The club thing isn't there, but its moe and loli all the same.
Seitokai no Ichizon are much inspired on lucky star. Both have a group of 4 main girls (In Seitokai no Ichizon plus a male in group), much anime parodies, mainly for suzumiya haruhi. School life and slice of life themes also.
Also, Seitokai no Ichizon parody lucky star.
When i saw the anime, I quickly thought "it's so much like Lucky Star", they both have anime parodies and no plot. :P lol, really fun to watch!
Seitokai no Ichizon has the same silly humor and a load of parodies (that aren't censored out :D) If you're looking for a nice, new, light-hearted anime, this is for you ^_^
Both animes are pretty much plotless
Both have a lot of female characters
Both have tons of moe
Both have a lot of parodies of other animes
Both have some really funny moments :3
These anime are both really random and they both have a lot references.
These two shows are very similar in the make tons of references and give great laughs for all true Otakus.
Seitokai no Ichizon have a lot of parodies of others animes, as Lucky Star. The two animes are very funny ^^
Both with lots of anime references, with many from Suzumiya Haruhi. The characters for both shows fall into the moe genre. Both are very light-hearted and funny shows with little to no plot advancements.
Ichizon also had a direct reference to LS.
A bunch of girls making liberal use of meta-humor and making references to other anime.
Cute girls that do absolutely nothing within the span of the anime's showing. Each girl in both series feature some sort of archetype, and they all reference various anime from various places. (They reference Haruhi a lot for some reason). A fun way to kill time if you want something not so serious.
