The February issue of Shogakukan's Ciao magazine, which will ship on Monday but was previewed early on Japanese television, will announce that Tomoko Nishimura's Gokujō!! Mecha Mote Iinchō (The Best!! Extremely Cool Student Council President) shōjo manga has been green-lit for an anime adaptation. In the story, Mimi Kitagami is a kind, level-headed girl who aims to be the best, coolest student council president of her high school class. However, three trouble-making boys are always causing her grief — and she has a one-sided crush on one of the boys, Ushio Tōjō.
Gokujō!! Mecha Mote Iinchō has been running in Ciao since its January 2006 issue, and the eighth compiled volume was published on Friday. The series is broken down into six story arcs, with the latter ones distinguished by prefixes added to the title: "Motto" (Even More), "Yappa" (Of Course), "Datte" (Still), "Gutto" (Totally), and "Gu-gutto" (T-totally). There is also a one-shot side story published in Shogakukan's Ciao Deluxe magazine spinoff, as well as a Nintendo DS video game and card game released by Konami.
