Enomoto Chihiro and his childhood friend Akiyama Tokino win the positions of chairman and vice-chairman of the next student council through a lottery. With the help of Kamishakujii Renko, who is going to be the next secretary, and Yamada Kaoruko, Renko’s assistant, the group sets out to find the fourth and final part of their team – the treasurer – because the complete group must go see the current chairman within the next 24 hours. They finally figure out the next day that the treasurer is a girl named Asagiri Koyuki, and this results in a chase between her and them. Koyuki eventually flees into a clock tower, but Chihiro persuades her out, much like how he helped a chick back when he was young. The complete group rushes to the student council room, but end up being one minute late. All seems lost, but fortunately for them the current chairman Ritsuko Kübel Kettenkrad decides that although the instructions to come to the student council room were given out at 12:00PM the day before, Chihiro and company didn’t send an acknowledgment until 12:02PM. Because of this, the four will be tentatively recognized as the next student council officers. At the very end, Chihiro realizes that the chairman is actually one of the girls he used to play with when he was a kid.

Watch the ED! Mirror 1 Mirror 2
Atsumi Saori sang the ED to Genshiken, which I liked a lot. So when I heard her singing OP when I saw the promo for this show, I was pretty happy. Nonoka Ai and Koshimizu Ami also did a pretty good job for the ED here. Still, as much as I hate to admit it, I miss UNDER17’s songs.
-I’m overall a bit disappointed at this. I didn’t find the episode that funny or that interesting, though I did enjoy hearing Gotou Yuuko as Kaoruko. There are some big changes from the designs and characters from the OVAs, which are what I’m measuring this series against. Maybe it’ll get better when the Chairman/Ritsuko gets more involved into the story.
-The best part of the episode was Madarame of Genshiken doing the next episode preview with Ogiue. That just made my day.
