I hope the love triangle match between Yuki, Chisato and Satsuki will start so soon, but I couldn't spoil it more.

Spoiler for Episode 3:

I wrote a lot more than I thought I would for this episode. I'm really liking it a lot more than I expected to. It's not technically amazing, nor does it have an interesting gimmick, but I already really like the characters a lot. I also love how energetic the OP is. This show and its characters are just a lot of fun .

Edit: Well, now that I think about it, the protagonist trying to participate in an election to become part of the Legendary Student Council is a pretty good hook .

Episode 3.

That teacher is really chugging down those beers. How is she still sobar?

That was a smart plan they came up with to gain the support of the other clubs that are being threatened with budget cuts of disbandment. It's just too bad the actual club couldn't come up with it themselves But I guess everyone needs help with something every once in a while. Also, using the female club members to make the request to male clubs to vote for them and get signatures? Such deviousness, yet brilliant

However, this anime gave many hints that we should be suspicious of President Mouri, so things aren't going to end well one way or another

Ahh! That was quite the tease they gave me. I seriously thought Chisato was giving him a kiss when they were resting on the bench. Gah, don't tease me!

Speaking of Chisato, still no clues to why she hates cohoclate. I'm expecting something like "Chocolate killed my parents" which would cause me to facepalm Nah, i'm expecting some sort of suitable reason soon enough

Campaign mode on!
It's cool how even Yakkun is helping out the campaign.
Seems like Yuuki has a pretty strong support so far.
Their elections seems to be on a pretty high level.
The way they were talking about it was like it was real politics.
These elections and Yukki running for president is more like he's doing Yakkun a favor by not letting the competition win and at the same time saving his club.
Yakkun sure is a smooth guy who knows exactly how to turn things into an advantage.
Looks like Yuuki has a thing for Shinonome. Wonder how that's gonna effect the elections later on..

WTF, protagonist is THAT close to sensei? Is there something you're not telling us.... >_>

Speaking of Sensei, colour me surprised that her and Ms. Rival have different mothers considering they look like a person and their younger self.

And oh yeah, Ms. Rival rears her ugly head again. Yuuki, you must not fall into the dark side!


All that said, I think the Senkyo part was the strongest part of this episode. It's really interesting how these people are putting in effort on the campaign, though what's the purpose of the other male in the club, I can not say.

Wow...he just totally buried his face in his teacher's chest didn't he? Narmiest moment of the series right there...

No Matsuri cameo made this episode crap for me. If there's none next episode then I might as well drop the show already.

I don't see that hug as narm, but yet another hint that there's something under the surface that we , the viewers are not privileged to. The sudden tonal shift at the end, from light-heartedly domestic to melancholic does not seem so much clumsy writing, but rather, a deliberate choice to flag that there's something up about their relationship, and there's backstory we'd like to know more.

It's the same with Chisato and the Chocolates. Infact, it seems that a good proportion of the food club members have interesting backstories. In part, it's because this anime makes it blatantly clear that we are dropped In Media Res, and NONE of the characters are Blank Slates with sketchy pasts, which would be what we expect to see from a.. more generic harem. In-fact, I am hesitant to call this Harem, to be honest - the MC's relations with the Food Club, with the exception of Chisato seem to be at the Platonic Level, at most.

And President Mouri.... yes. The fact that we SHOULD feel suspicious of him indeed adds to the political angle of the show. Of course, we don't have a full picture what's exactly going on behind the scenes, but the VERY opening scene of the anime again hints.

Finally, I'm glad that Chocolate chooses to focus more on politics this time round. What Chocolate needs to be more than average would be a very close focus on characterization (Sensei got quite a good deal, so did Chisato ), and above all, a focus on the political angle. If the gender balance in the Food Club was more even, I think people would be taking this anime more seriously- unfortunately, the sheer number of females throws this into the unfortunate "harem" box. The problem is, with a One Cour count, and the number of hints they are throwing, I fear Chocolate would remain just that: a mass of tantalizing hints, but no denouement.

If Chocolate was treated as a harem it'd be a rather boring one. If it was treated as Political Commentary warped around in a Significant Slice of (Unusual) Elite School Life, that's where it starts getting more interesting. I'd say the same for the other milder Harem airing, Imouto too- if one looks at both animes beyond their Harem aspects, it becomes much more enjoyable, and interesting to watch.

Rather than simply condemning certain sections as Narm, I think scenes like the Hug do happen for reasons we the viewers have not yet and may never see because of the In Media Res manner where we are dropped ontop of ongoing character development whose origins were not shown. Is it frustrating? Maybe, but what do you expect out of a One Cour anyway?

Interesting that the Yakumo is helping the club out to get Yuuki elected. Satsuki really dislikes her sister for some reason. Wonder why Yuuki was at Hazuki's place at the end, but it certainly changed the tone again like with Chisato and the chocolate last ep. Also Michiru with the harmonica looked sad.

No, I understood that perfectly. It's just the fact that he's putting his face in her breasts that makes it a bit narmish. It has nothing to do with clumsy writing.

Haven't you seen how Chisato reacted when Yuuki was with Satsuki? Try to imagine how he could ever explain this to her.

That breast hugging scene was just not normal same as the bloody incident at the beginning of this anime. There is something going on, something darker probably...

However he does not seem to be interested at all because no matter the teasing from Hadzuki, he was not shocked or flustered at all and easily brushed it off. Hadzuki sighing after he left was also interesting. That whole scene between Yukki and Hadzuki is just rather surprising though.

Satsuki... lol I did not really expect her to get so close to Yuuki so quickly. She definitely seems to be enjoying talking with Yuuki even though he's the opponent. I'm definitely liking her more and more. What I love about this episode so far is the details of the scenes. If we were not shown Satsuki all happy and giggling right after she saw Yukki a ways off, I would have started to be suspicious of her motives of getting closer to Yuuki. However since we were shown that, it shows that she genuinely enjoys Yuuki's company as well.

Satsuki's relationship with Hadzuki is interesting as well. During that scene, I did not feel any hatred really. There's something else to it and not only that, they looked rather sad than angry or hate. Might be more of a family issue rather than just a thing between those two.

Chisato! That "monster" scene of hers was so funny! Love how Yukki tossed the coffee can and she ran after that as well. Also love the fact that she said that Yukki really is precious to her hehe.

The whole politics angle in the first half of the show is also pretty cool. I already liked President Mouri and now like him more because he seems to be really smooth about it (and of course we still don't fully understand his motive yet).

I was (pleasantly) surprised with the series story becoming a bit more serious in ep 3. Hmm. Am looking forward to the next ep....

After taking AP Gov't and Politics, I definitely appreciate the politics portion that this series has. The whole student gov't stuff is really taken seriously; and it's just not some student council either. Hazuki also mentioned how the teachers are hired by students themselves. I find that pretty interesting. Speaking of Hazuki...GODDAMN.

Shinonome Sisters = the best sisters.

Now that i think about it. In episode 1 only Yuuki knew that Hazuki and Satsuki were sisters. That should be the first clue in Yuuki and Hazuki knowing each other pretty good and maybe before even the club was formed.
