[Ended] Koi to Senkyo to Chocolate: Building Excitement, One Block at a Time

Honestly, I never had much expectation for this series. But turns out, this is a very interesting story, built one block at a time. It actually feels like a twisted Japanese version of the Chris Rock's movie, Head of State, where someone started to run for office for the wrong reason, but ends up becoming a real candidate for the right reason.

Like most game adapted anime, almost every single side character has a problem, and the whole show is about how the main character helps them solve their personal problems while slowly grow into a worthy candidate with his own ideas about what leadership is.

Final Scoreboard:

Drama: 88 (Politics)

Comedy: 86 (Pretty interesting)
Action: N/A
Art/Animation: 88 (Typical)
Sound/Music: 84 (So so)
Character: 86 (Growing up)
Plot: 80 (Rather predictable)
Ending: 89 (Highly predictable)

Re-watch value: 50 - Maybe

Overall: 84 - Intriguing, but highly predictable

Recommendation: It's good, but it's not great. The plot, you can see both problems and solutions coming miles away. So there isn't really much of a twist and turn, it's just people solving problems, straight up. Nevertheless, it's still an interesting story. If you have extra time, it may worth your time.
