Series Name: Seitokai no Ichizon
Genre: Comedy, Parody, School Life, HAREM!!!
Notable Seiyuus: Noto Mamiko, Kondo Takashi
OP Sequence: Treasure by Heikyou Gakuen Seitokai(The 4 main female leads)
The OP animation sequence is nice. The song is catchy, the girls are hot. This show was a winner in my book from before I even got to the main plot. The OP is sung by the 4 main female leads of the show. All 4 main female leads are relatively new to the industry. Yup, for 3/4 of them, this would be their 1st seiyuu role. And they add a fresh new voice to the industry.
Characters wise, there are 5 main characters and 2 support characters that pop in from time to time. The 5 main lead characters are Sakurano Kurimu aka Aka-chan, Akaba Chizuru, Shiina Minatsu, Shiina Mafuyu and Sugisaki Ken.
The 1st 4 were placed into the Seitokai based on a school popularity contest. As for Ken, he got into the Seitokai on the fact that he’s the smartest kid in school.
The characters are all equally balanced. There’s the Chibi-redhead[Aka-chan]. Then the alluring sexy-brunette[Chizuru]. The Tomboy-ish Brown-haired girl[Minatsu], the game/bishounen loving blonde[Mafuyu] and lastly the king of H-Games and Harem Seeker.[Sugisaki Ken]
Plot wise, there’s not much of an ongoing continous plot going on. The show mainly deals with the day-to-day activities of the Heikyou Seitokai like what they do and what they have to do. That being said, for some, the show will totally put them off as it’s like a comedy club setting. The entire series practically takes place in the Seitokai room with rare changes of scenery.
The show focuses on 2 aspects. 1) the parodies. 2) Sugisaki’s Sukebe-ness and Harem Dreams.
Yes. The parodies are great but honestly, without subtitles, I would be totally lost like 99% of the time. Just in the 1st episode alone there’s a Lucky Star parody and I believe it was the 4th/5th episode where there was a Code Geass parody.
While the parodies alone, can carry the show, I honestly believe it was Sugisaki’s Sukebe-ness and Harem dream that got me hooked on this show. Week after week you’ll see him continually picking his words properly so that his life, which is his opinion is like a H-game, will follow the Harem Route.
Just episode 5 there was an episode where he was made to wear blindfolds as the A/C in the Seitokai room had broken down and the girls resorted to wearing swimsuits.
Yep, the material in this show is superb. The current novel is still ongoing so I believe there’s a lot of material that can be worked on in the future if say a 2nd season happens.
Seitokai no Ichizon gets a 4.5/5 from me.
(as for why I decided to not place an ED video, it is because the ED changes weekly. So yeah.)

Because this is my HAREEMMMMM!
*paging Bluesnow. watch this. :D:D
One of those shows I want to watch but haven’t found time too.
Haha I’m loving this series as well ;) and I’m quite hooked on to the ending song =O
@guuzen- I am completely hooked on the song as well. I also think this show has become my one of my favorite new shows.
I really love the Seitokai humor and characters. Particularly Sugisaki, because I can very well feel with him, especially in his blind-folded scenes ^^ But the female characters are just as well amazing. I like Chizuru (I like sexy but sadistic characters) and Mafuyu (she’s like many of us XD) in particular.
The ending song is quite funny.
I personally love this show. Had heard a few complaints and rants from other people about this series. But for me, well, its not everyday you come across a shameless otaku as the protagonist. The situations he finds himself in are very entertaining. It’s only 13 episodes I think, sad to think it will end soon.
