Why is there some spy business in my harem anime? WHY?!!!
So it really does begin with some espionage, as some female student is pulling off a successful stakeout and taking pictures of some shady deal occurring between, well, what appears to be students as well. Something about school funds, probably. She is successful at the espionage, that is until a car comes it and hits her, along this hitman to erase the data in her camera.
Cue our actual set of characters. Yuuki and a bunch of girls are part of the school’s Food Club. Basically, they eat snacks. That’s about it, actually. Pretty useless club, but that’s the chocolate part of the title. Oh they also have a trap in their club by the way.
But seeing that they’re quite the useless club, it appears that they may get disbanded soon, depending on who wins the next student council election. The favorite to win that election comes from the financial committee of the school, and her platform is disbanding useless clubs to cut down on school expense. Makes sense.
But of course, Yuuki and the gang wants to save their club, but seeing that the alternatives the current front runner are far worse, they come up with a new plan: They’ll run for the position themselves! And yes, that’s the senkyo (election) part of the title. But somehow the job of actually running falls to Yuuki, for some reason.
But what about the koi (love) part of the title? Well, it’s not quite there yet, but I suppose the election would be the avenue for our harem lead Yuuki to do his magic. So that part would have to be put on hold.
But as far as I can see, the harem and romance part if pretty typical. There’s the typical tsundere-ish childhood friend, the gentle yamato-nadeshiko like girl, the unemotional and unexpressive girl etc. There’s nothing much different, except from the fact that they’re mixing it up with student council election, and politics. By that I mean shady politics, one that involves the above secret deals and attempted murder.
Which is, honestly, very very weird. I was expecting something light and fun, but suddenly we get some shady politics. I’m not exactly sure if I’m supposed to take that seriously. But on that account I really doubt they’d put in a real critical analysis of modern day politics. It is, after all, a harem anime.
So yeah, the twist is supposed to make this interesting, but I find it more weird than anything. That part didn’t work for me. Not that I’m not gonna check the next episode, I’m still in it for the harem. Gotta love them harem anime (even though they’re normally awful).
Oh by the way, the show suffers from terrible censoring.
