Koi to Senkyo to Chocolate (Love, Election, and Chocolate)
Per ANN and to be announced in the January 2012 issue of Dengeki G's magazine (streeting end-November 2011), the eroge "Koi to Senkyo to Chocolate" from brand sprite (website region-locked) will be getting an anime adaptation in 2012.

I had actually been suspecting this one for a while, given it's rather large marketing push in various ASCII MediaWorks magazines/properties.

The general premise is basically outlined in the ANN article. Yuki attends an elite private academy along with his childhood friend Chisato, and they along with some of their friends are part of a "Contemporary Food Club", which is really just a hangout where they eat snacks. But one day the leading student council president candidate, Satsuki, informs them that their club is pointless and going to be cut (along with a bunch of others) to reduce club expenses. In order to protect their club, Chisato convinces Yuki to run in the election himself. What follows is a romantic story intermixed with a heavy dose of High School politics.

This is a story where I think the theme and concept are stronger than any of the individual parts or routes, so I think it actually might be rather well-suited for an anime adaptation. Looking forward to it.

Here's the game OP/promo video:

The color palette's a little subdued for an eroge of my sort, but I'm not picky. Lots of good names in the voice cast, too. Asami Imai, Kaori Mizuhashi, Yuu Asakawa, Eriko Nakamura, Mai Kadowaki as the main heroines, a quick research jaunt tells me.

I was initially surprised about what I discovered about the reception of this eroge.

I guess this eroge is not just plain as it suggests.

I don't know how far the premise of this VN carries it, but it seems like it could be something enjoyable for me if the characters are good. I like the artstyle of the VN.

This one caught my eye a long time ago, I absolutely love the character designs :)

But in the end it all comes down to who's going to do it... Please be Manglobe again...

Kismet-chan 2011-11-28 02:01

I like the character designs and the game OP/promo song is enjoyable to listen to (I know that doesn't have much to do with the anime itself, but I just felt like noting that I like it). The story sounds interesting enough. Will keep an eye on this.

This is one I heard lots about. The character design sure are gorgeous. "High school politics" reminds me of those American high school dramedy targeted at teens, but I'm pretty sure it wont be like that.

Will look forward to hearing what studio is adapting this.

Tempester 2011-11-28 07:43

This VN has a gorgeous art style. But VN adaptations, especially for fluffy love stories like this, are usually very unambitious, with 12 episodes and a unified route with little or no romance. There's a chance that the art style won't carry over well into animation, especially if we get a sub-par animation studio. So I'll keep my expectations low.

johnishida 2011-11-28 07:56

This is a pleasant surprise, the game was enjoyable for the most part so I'll be looking forward to the anime.

They will probably go with the canon Chisato route but, I have hopes for a Satsuki route instead since she ranked high in the getchu characters ranking last year. :D

As for the rest of the heroines, it should not be difficult to include the key parts of the other routes by adding some changes.

hyl 2011-11-28 10:56

Let's hope the anime keeps some aspects of the gorgeous art animated (which i doubt, but i can hope)

Katapan 2011-11-28 11:06

This seems to be an Aniplex production, judging from the results that came up when 2chers tried to look up who was behind the website. My memory might be failing me, but isn't this the first time they actually fund a TV series based on an eroge? They are probably placing quite a lot of hope into that title, then.

fertygo 2011-11-28 11:19

We can hope (and I wish) we got A-1 then.

Yes -- they are a club where they eat snacks. But err... I never noticed that. :heh:

Micchi 2011-11-28 17:35

A bit surprised about this, but maybe they can pull it off. Having played the game, I don't think it's that great, although it has its moments. I guess they'll go with the 'canon' route in Chisato and maybe spend a few eps to deal with other chars (like Isara... please!!).

Looking forward to yaoibou being the new craze...

Zexas 2011-11-28 20:59

LOL they're making an anime out of this? :D

The VN strength lies on it's art and gorgeous music. I hope they kept it all intact because I'd love to see some scene to be animated with that lovely music in the background.

It's one of those VN where I found some people had a beef with the "main" heroine. Seriously I don't like chisato route at all - I found mifuyu route to be far superior.
Spoiler for Like when:

relentlessflame 2011-11-28 22:13

I created a game thread so that we game players can discuss plot details about the game (and speculation about the anime) without risking spoiling the plot for future anime-only viewers.

MisaoFan 2011-11-29 10:23

Confirmed ! It's a Aniplex production !

Kakkou 2011-11-29 12:46

I really like the art style of the VN. It doesn't give me that "colourful but boring and uninspiring" impression I tend to get from VN art. If it translates well into animated form it might just push me closer towards trying it out.

Ray 2012-01-04 17:02

I've also had my eye on this for a while, mainly because of the lovely visuals. I really hope the anime adaptation turns out to be good ~
