The March issue of Shogakukan's Ciao magazine is announcing on February 3 that the second year of the Gokujō!! Mecha Mote Iinchō (The Best!! Extremely Cool Student Council President) shōjo television anime series has been green-lit. The second year will begin this April.
In the original manga by Tomoko Nishimura, 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 10th compiled book volume shipped in August. 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.
Update: More background information added. Ciao hints that a "super-powerful rival" will make an anime debut in the second year.
