The Yaoi Stick really is a versatile product.
Something separates Koi to Senkyo to Chocolate from every other student council centric anime out there. At the moment, the series is split into a blatant episodic formula: 85% slice of life-esque club activities followed by 15% drama. In a sense, the drama may seem a bit brusque, and forced; yet, it seemed to flow during these past few episodes. If Oojima actually wins the election, the mood of the anime may shift [at least by speculation].
Takafuji Academy is an extremely unique school; the student council act as the accredited government. The mechanics of this working has only been slightly touched on through the interactions between Oojima and the incumbent president, Satsuki Shinonome. If, by opportunity, the anime further enunciates on how this works, then Koi to Senkyo to Chocolate could be a relatively original series.
The point of conflict during this episode revolves around financial aid students and the general students. Whether it’s by some ordained elitism, certain students appear to bully less fortunate students. The drama during this episode could be seen as a bit dogmatically trite [the affluent bullying the poor], but, it should serve as a plot device. Satsuki, the current incumbent president, may be aspiring to eliminate the financial aid program [essentially indentured servitude] in order to bring into cause, a regular scholarship [don’t get shitty grades and it’ll be fine]. It’s a bit optimistic to assume that this tactic will work, less fortunate students are less fortunate students; it’ll only lessen their workload, but I’m sure the bullying will ensue [unless the identities of those students that receive scholarships aren’t given — then again, a scholarship isn’t quite as negative as financial aid [it’s the connotation; a scholarship doesn’t imply a certain class]]. Anyways, Isari being bullied should mold Oojima’s actions as president, and his further subsequent actions if he does win the election.
On-going Thoughts: Concluding Thoughts
This season has a multitude of great shows. Among those is Kokoro Connect. That show is ridiculously awesome [I may be enjoying it more than SAO’s anime adaptation]. I really haven’t been watching a lot of shows outside of my on-going ones, but I did play Muv-Luv: Alternative [and parts of its sequel]. It was an incredibly well-written, and great visual novel; I’m still depressed about it. Besides that, just playing video games due to a certain expansion due to be released in around two months.
Oh right, should probably talk about Chocolate. It’s getting progressively more interesting, it’s amazing to see a series that’s not ridiculously rushed.
