Sentai Filmworks picked up the license for Student Council’s Discretion, aka Seitokai no Ichizon back in November 2013 and the the home video release for that season is coming out on DVD and Blu-ray on March 24th, 2015. Ahead of that, the series has now begun its run on Hulu, as supplied by The Anime Network, which is also streaming the full twelve episode series on its service as well. The show is being presented in its original Japanese language with English subtitles. The series is adapted from the light novels by Sekina Aoi and is directed by Takuya Sato (Say,”I Love You”, Strawberry Marshmallow) with series composition by Jukki Hanada (Beyond the Boundary, Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions) and animation production from Studio DEEN (Fate/stay night, Sakura Trick).
Sentai Filmworks also picked up the rights to the second season of the series, which is scheduled for a home video release on May 26th, 2015, so we’ll see that join Hulu in a couple of months to be sure.
Plot concept: 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 lines between facts and fiction disappear and what REALLY happened will probably never be revealed except at the STUDENT COUNCIL’S DISCRETION!
