posted on by Karen Ressler
Sentai Filmworks announced on Thursday that it has licensed the anime series Student Council's Discretion (Seitokai no Ichizon). The company plans to release the series digitally and on home video.
Sentai Filmworks describes the series:
At Hekiyo Academy, all but one of the Student Council members are elected via popularity contests, and since teenagers think with hormones more often than intellects, those seats are filled by the attractive derrieres of the school's most beautiful girls! That makes things extra rough on the one student chosen for academic scores, because besides being the council's only male member, one of Ken Sugisaki's main assignments is writing stories informing the student body about the many achievements of their Student Council. That means manipulating the truth just a bit, and given that Ken's a besotted fan of dating video games who fantasizes about his fellow council members as his “harem”, things tend to get even more out of hand. And exactly who's going to be the leading lady is up for debate, as immature Kurimu, tomboyish Minatsu, twisted Chizuru and “boy love” obsessed Mafuyu are all trying to add their own particular spins, even as their jealous rivals in the Journalism Club aim to shoot them down!
The 2009 TV anime Seitokai no Ichizon is based on a series of light novels of the same name, written by Sekina Aoi and illustrated by Kira Inugami. Crunchyroll streamed the series in 2010, and its sequel Student Council's Discretion Level 2 as it aired in 2013.
Takuya Sato (Say, "I Love You.", Strawberry Marshmallow) directed the series at Studio DEEN with series composition by Jukki Hanada (Beyond the Boundary, Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions).
