生徒会の一存 / Seitokai no Ichizon Episode 06

I took 12 shots for this episode, all of them are in the gallery above [now below, it took up too much space]. In the actual post, I’ll give my comments and highlight the best screenshots.


"That's nothing; there are schools that have students pass out fliers in bunny suits at the front gate--" "That's only SOS!"

"That's nothing; there are schools that have students pass out fliers in bunny suits at the front gate--" "That's only SOS!"

Notice Sugisaki suddenly grows a bust in this frame.

Seitokai no Ichizon also seems to be overly fond of Haruhi allusions. They also seem to like Higurashi, as will be shown in a later shot.


"Now that the biggest problem has turned to ash, let's continue with the meeting."

"Now that the biggest problem has turned to ash, let's continue with the meeting."

Poor Sugisaki.

Okay, begin actual summary.

This episode: the student council is deciding on the theme for this year’s Cultural Festival. For those who don’t watch anime often, Japanese schools normally hold at least one cultural festival every year, where every class and club in the school participates with some sort of event, show, booth, food stand, etc.

Sugisaki’s idea for the theme: “sexual”. Of course, instantly objected to by the other four members.

One by one, each of the members’ ideas is rejected by the four others… a side effect of them knowing each other too well >_<


Mafuyu's second idea for the school's Cultural Festival theme. The first, for your information, was to do with boys' love.

I actually liked Minatsu’s idea the best.


"First, to get an entrance ticket to the festival, one must survive an elimination battle royale."

"One badge will be given to each person, but without two, they can't participate on the second day."

"One badge will be given to each person, but without two, they can't participate on the second day."

Seitokai06-6

That reminded me of Yugioh, actually, and those… what were they called? Those armband star things?

Either way, I love Seitokai and its random, awesome, epic, beautifully animated humor. I also love its superior character design, each and every character (barring Sugisaki) has an interesting, unique personality that yet totally fits one or more anime cliches (archetypes) that totally enhance viewers’ reception of each character.

I commend the author of Seitokai no Ichizon.


"If you're going to have a meeting, I prefer you do it with a hatchet and a bat."

"If you're going to have a meeting, I prefer you do it with a hatchet and a bat."

Here’s your Higurashi reference.


"The BGM will be a remix of the sound of styrofoam rubbing against styrofoam and nails screeching against a blackboard."

"The BGM will be a remix of the sound of styrofoam rubbing against styrofoam and nails screeching against a blackboard."

She’s just… evil.

"How does 'sweets' sound?"

"How does 'sweets' sound?"

And there’s our lovable President’s proposal.

Other happening in this episode: Minatsu announces her mom is remarrying, and she will be transferring, along with Mafuyu. ;______;

Of course, they’re main characters… so that didn’t happen. Surprisingly, Sugisaki actually did something useful this episode in stopping them from transferring… and Minatsu seems to have (at least partially) fallen in love with him ><


"Mafuyu won't forget about Sugisaki-senpai until the day Mafuyu forgets you!"

"Mafuyu won't forget about Sugisaki-senpai until the day Mafuyu forgets you!"

Mafuyu is surprisingly capable of being sarcastic at times. Or maybe she wasn’t doing it on purpose.


"Wait!"

"Wait!"

But everything turned out happy. I find it odd that they only postponed their pending school transfer. I mean, they’re moving to China (I’m assuming that’s what they meant by “mainland”) so… yeah… postpone?

It’s sad that if we get a Seitokai second season, we’ll probably go without Shiina and Minatsu. They’re my two favorite characters from Seitokai, so you can’t take them away from me ;_____;


It's the Hekiyou Academy Rangers!

    Well, what a nice review for episode 06 of Seizon (I prefer saying that)

    I just wanted to point out what they meant by the mainland here was Japan’s main island, Honshu, since the story takes place at Hokkaido. 

    Since I watched this episode. I always wonder what will happen to Ken after Kurimu and Chizuru graduates and the Shiina sisters moved out. . .

    Ahh, I see. For me, Japan is a mere island so mainland -> China xD

    Re-reading this post makes me want a 2nd season ^^
