About Student Council's Discretion Season 1 DVD

Student Council's Discretion Season 1 set contains episodes 1-12 of the anime directed by Takuya Satō.

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.

To do that he'll have to manipulate 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. Plus, exactly who's going to be the leading lady is up for debate, as immature Kurimu, tomboyish Minatsu, twisted Chizuru, and "boy's 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!

Special Features: Clean Opening Animation, Clean Closing Animation.

Spoken Languages: Japanese, English subtitles.

An Unusual, but Very Entertaining Series

by -

This one's more a collection of loosely connected comedy sketches than anything else, with five characters (and the occasional guest) just talking and bickering while trying to improve their image as a council.

There are numerous pop culture references, along with a bit of slapstick, but it's mainly banter based on traditional Japanese comedy. Each of the characters has a few screws loose due to an extreme trait, and has frequent times where they show it by saying something crazy or downright disturbing. There's also more than a little bit of teasing, with certain characters especially prone to it.

And that's really all there is. The whole concept is just a look at the results of this bunch of weirdos getting together to pretend they're doing something.

So, if you like random comedy, particularly dialogue and banter based, this will probably be a dream come true. Don't expect even marginal action, plot, or character development though.

Hit or Miss

by -

This series really depends on your preferences. Each of the characters of the student council tries to act out the tropes of a main character from different genres like harem, shonen, etc but really are just delusional high school kids. The plot is just situational where the president tries to act out the role of the ideal president of an all girls schools then everyone tries to tug the story towards their favored trope. The banter is good with over the top expressions, though not every situation holds up.

There is a very touching reason why the main character joins the student council and does all the work and some development of a side character, but it feels a little disjointed based on how the series has developed as shown in the anime.

The main downside is the jokes reference to anime/manga; the series does include notes so you can get the joke, but I had to pause many times to read them.
