“Nothing ventured nothing gained” That is one of the quotes that came to my mind after starting this anime. The main protagonist Yuuki Oojima has the option to run for an election to save his precious club, he starts his election after hearing similar words from people around him.
At first I thought Choi to Senkyo to Chocolate would be your typical school club romance type anime. For me it ended up becoming so much more. It starts out with a dramatic event that honestly makes hardly any sense until you get quite a ways into the anime. Once things start to make sense though this anime seems too really shine. One of the things it portrays is that politics aren’t always what they seem on the surface. There is always a struggle behind the scenes and this is one of the topics this anime tackles in a very interesting fashion. Throughout the anime it confronts the things that happen on the surface and behind the scenes in politics.
Koi to Senkyo to Chocolate also has the drama and romance to go with it that makes it all the more intriguing. Each character has their own story and their own reasons for doing things. They are all unique and make the story come together wonderfully.
As for Koi to Senkyo to Chocolates flaws, it definitely does have them, though most are easy to look over. One of it’s biggest flaws I think is that it sometimes feels rushed sometimes. I would have liked to see this anime more around 23 episodes. It also has it’s cliché’s like most anime, things seem to always work out for the better. Oh and they never explain some things like how Oojima seems to see some people in a strange way, though it’s easy to make speculations.
Overall I was very impressed, especially considering I wasn’t expecting much of anything of this anime. It has all the factors to make it a very enjoyable watch. I also don’t know of many anime’s that present politics and romance in the way this anime does, which made it even more enjoyable. Either way whether you enjoy drama, romance, or politics this is a good watch!
