Media Alert: Love, Election and Chocolate starting this Thursday on Anime Network Online

HOUSTON, TX — Aug 29, 2012 — Broadcast and digital distributor Anime Network is pleased to announce its latest online special release: Love, Election and Chocolate. From Director Toru Kitahata (The Big O, Rumbling Hearts), and featuring designs by Hiroaki Gohda (Amagami SS, Please Teacher!) comes a story of childhood crushes, intense political "battles", and deliciously decadent fun!


In Japan, participation in extra-curricular activities is as fundamental as the curriculum itself. Not all students are overachievers; for Yuki Ojima, the Food Research Club is a slacker's haven until a new candidate for Student Council president announces her intent to get rid of clubs like the FRC. To start, Yuki enlists the help of the current chocolate-adverse president who suggests that Yuki run for Student Council himself! Banding with the other goofs and goof-offs, Yuki might coast his way to victory! Whether they savor victory or taste defeat, you're certain to eat up Love, Election and Chocolate!
