Finally! One good translation group released their translation of the KoiChoco anime! I can now write the episode blog with accurate information regarding the events, and scenes in this episode. Yes!! I love it, despite this very first episode having some objectionable flags, because of Shinonome Satsuki (the beautiful girl pictured here)!! How I wish I can become Ohjima Yuuki… And speaking of Yuuki, his thoughts and disposition totally remind me of the days when I was still idealistic about the idea of having relationships. Somehow, it’s my main reason why I decided to picked it up. It also got intrigued with this.
This episode’s start had a student trying to capture an “exclusive” of a clandestine meeting to deliver secret information, which eventually failed as, presumably, one of the conspirators attacked her with a car and destroyed the memory card where the photographs were stored.
The “Food Research Club” or shokken is a club that just hangs around to eat food, with an adviser who does nothing but drink liquor during clubtime. Chisato, the club president, can’t eat chocolate due to her “preferences.” One morning, their adviser delivered a grim news that the club might get disbanded due to it being classified as a “meritless” one. It is a plan that Shinonome Satsuki, a candidate for the Student Council Presidential elections, wants to pursue when she wins due to uneven budget distribution. Unfortunately; their adviser, Shinonome Hazuki, can’t persuade Satsuki to stop her plan.
Even if it isn’t campaign period yet, some candidates did some early campaigning like distributing freebies to students “as a way of saying thanks.” On a following club meeting, Hazuki opened-up the idea of someone in the club running as Student Council President with Yuuki being selected to become the club’s representative later. This makes KoiChoco, honestly, not just your ordinary schoolclub-themed bishoujo anime since it also makes nice commentary on political trends through the student council elections. Hints of romantic drama are given to the readers who care about researching and scrutinising this episode.
