Seitokai no Ichizon - Episode 11

After this eleventh instalment of Seitokai no Ichizon begins with Sugisaki looking to improve himself via an online bulletin board, so we find that he surprisingly ends up with a day off sick from the student council after running up an insane temperature.

Now, the thought of an entire episode without too much focus on Ken appealed to me personally, but needless to say he still somehow ended up being the centre of attention, albeit after the other council member's attempts to carry out a "normal" meeting without him. For them, such a meeting involved a discussion of what constitutes an acceptable part-time job, before we get a glimpse inside the mysteries that lurk within Sugisaki's bag.

Eventually, the girls decide that they should really pay him a visit to see how he's doing (especially after somehow jumping to the conclusion that he's away saving the world or something) - So, after stocking up with provisions they head off to his place. On the way they meet a couple of Ken's former class mates, who spill the beans about what a terrible guy he allegedly was at his last school; revelations which get short shrift from the rest of the council members. Thus, Ken gets a brief glimpse of his ideal harem ending, although we're left with a shocking confession (quite literally) come the end of the episode.

As so often seems to be the case with Seitokai no Ichizon, there really isn't a lot to be said about it - The vast majority of the jokes were unfunny truth be told, and the sentimental aspects of the episode proved to be dull and tiring as ever. There really seems to be nowhere left for this series to go aside from accidentally hitting the spot with a decent gag every now and then, and I don't see confessions or other attempts to shake up the status quo changing that in the slightest.

i think the anime is pretty good though, it's different from the normal anime which is pretty refreshing.
