The story revolves around Ken Sugisaki, a former low rank student who was able to get into the Student Council by becoming a valedictorian in his class. He holds the position of the vice president, where he is surrounded by the cute and charming Student Council members, as he is the only male. Each of the girls had their own issues, but they turn to love Ken in a very different way as the series continue.
In this anime project, the cast includes Mina as the voice of Sohara Mitsuki, Kanami Mihara as the voice of Chizuru Akaba, and Iori Nomizu will take the role of Mafuyu Shiina.
Masahito Onoda will head the character design; wherein AIC will produce the new series. Kenichi Imazumi is slated as the project;s director with the script editor Reiko Yoshida. Seitokai no Ichizon has previously been animated in 2009 by Studio Deen.
Currently, the anime production has not yet revealed a title for the series, but has made a contest to determine the anime’s name. This was announced in July, and the final title will be revealed in the premiere episode. The Seitokai no Ichizon adaptation will premiere on October 13, with an opening theme song performed by the cast. It is also available on the streaming website Nico Nico on the same date, 11:30 pm in Japan.
