TUESDAY NEW RELEASES: STUDENT COUNCIL’S DISCRETION SEASON 1 / SEASON 2
When Ken Sugisaki is selected for Hekiyou Academy’s student council based on academic achievements rather than popularity, one might expect him to be a fish out of water or to at least struggle to swim in the sea of beautiful girls holding the other seats. However, as Ken is a dating simulation aficionado and his primary duty is writing articles informing the school about Council activities, it’s a match made in his own imaginary Harem Heaven! Of course, how much reality is left in those missives once Ken’s fevered romantic fantasies massage them might be questionable… especially once twisted Chizuru, yaoi-obsessed Mafuyu, juvenile Kurimu, and even boyish Minatsu contribute to his ongoing self-insert soap opera! But does it really matter? Maybe not, as long as the student body is happy reading about what happens at the STUDENT COUNCIL’S DISCRETION!

Hekiyou Academy’s Student Council is back, but they’re not just up to their usual shenanigans. They’re pushing the limit on the kind of behavior befitting a supposedly dignified representation of the student body at large. Okay, maybe any vestige of dignity went up in smoke when they decided to make an anime featuring themselves, so will anyone complain about spicing it up even further? Sure, there are certain losers who believe in things like sticking to the facts, but why can’t student politics be an accurate reflection of politics in the “real world”? And if everything is really about catching attention, of course there’s going to be a hot springs episode! Toss in a few arbitrary mysteries to solve, a smidge of step-sibling romance, and some fourth wall shattering, and you have the STUDENT COUNCIL’S DISCRETION LV. 2!
