-->''The story of a boy yearning for true love and a girl hating chocolate.''

Or, in English, ''Love, Election & Chocolate.'' An adult VisualNovel released in 2010 by the relatively new company Sprite. It features artwork by Akinashi Yuu, music by I've Sound, and an all-star voice cast. An [[BleachedUnderpants all-ages]] PSP version of the game was released in September 2012, as well as an anime adaptation that started airing as a part of the [[Summer2012Anime summer season of 2012.]]

Ohjima Yuuki is a second-year student at the extremely prestigious private high school called Takafuji Gakuen. This school has a student body of about six thousand, and most of its students are on the fast track to good careers. Perhaps because of that, the AbsurdlyPowerfulStudentCouncil takes a strong role in maintaining and governing the students; kiddy politics though they may be compared to the real world, the student government is also practice for aspiring politicians, and is SeriousBusiness.

Of late, the budget for school clubs has become stretched thin. It's almost time for the third-year StudentCouncilPresident, Mouri Yakumo, to step down--and because of this, the club budget is an important issue in this year's election. Frontrunner candidate Shinonome Satsuki openly intends to deal with the issue by abolishing all [[ThePiratesWhoDontDoAnything clubs with "no merit"]]. This includes the Food Research Club that Yuuki is in, where he and a handful of his friends do nothing but hang out and eat sweets.

When Yuuki and the club go to Mouri for help, he suggests that Yuuki should enter the election himself in order to protect his daily life. And so Yuuki does, quickly getting swept up into the school's political situation.

The heroines you can romance in game are:

* '''Sumiyoshi Chisato''', Yuuki's PatientChildhoodLoveInterest and the [[ClubPresident president]] of the Food Research Club. A second-year student just like Yuuki. A GenkiGirl. Because of a mysterious incident in her past, she refuses to eat chocolate. She is the main heroine, and the player must complete her route in order to unlock the four others. Voiced by [[Creator/ErikoNakamura Nakamura Eriko]].
* '''Kiba Mifuyu''', a good friend of Chisato. She's a year older than Chisato and Yuuki, but is an IllGirl and has been held back to be in the same year as them due to her frequent sicknesses. She is from Hokkaido and knows a lot about its foods. Voiced by [[Creator/KaoriMizuhashi Mizuhashi Kaori]].
* '''Aomi Isara''', a first-year student. She is very poor and goes to school almost entirely on scholarships, causing her to be the target of bullying, but she is a hardworking [[ThePollyanna Pollyanna]] who is never discouraged. Has a special talent for finding {{Four Leaf Clover}}s and a SignatureLaugh. Voiced by [[Creator/MaiKadowaki Kadowaki Mai]].
* '''Shinonome Satsuki''', a second-year student and Yuuki's political rival. She is wise and strong-willed, but because her family runs a wagashi[[note]]Japanese confection[[/note]] shop, she has a weakness for the Western sweets she's rarely able to eat. BoobsOfSteel. Has a distinctive red-bobbled hair tie. Voiced by [[YuuAsakawa Asakawa Yuu]].
* '''Morishita Michiru''', a first-year student in Isara's class. TheQuietOne. She wandered into the Food Research Club on a whim. Fickle, but apparently likes Yuuki. She's usually seen eating her TrademarkFavoriteFood, the [[BlandNameProduct Yaoi-bou]][[note]]Umai-bou[[/note]], and [[GamerChick playing her PSP]]. [[AnimalMotifs Considered to be catlike]]. Voiced by [[Creator/AsamiImai Imai Asami]].
* '''Edagawa Nozomi''', a third-year student and former president of the Food Research Club. Affectionately called "Non-chan" by her peers. She used to live overseas, where she skipped a grade. Loves Yuuki's handmade Ohjima Roll sweets. Good friends with Mouri, to the point of calling him "Yakkun". Voiced by Gibu Yuuko. Her route is PSP-exclusive.

The anime adaptation features an original scenario that incorporates content from Satsuki, Michiru, and Chisato's routes.

There are currently two manga adaptations running, one simply titled ''Koi to Senkyo to Chocolate'' that focuses on Chisato's storyline and one with the subtitle ''Stray Little Cat'' that focuses on (you guessed it) Michiru.

----
!!This VisualNovel employs the following tropes:

* AbsurdlyPowerfulStudentCouncil: Apparently, the student council controls the budget and policy for the school. The outgoing president also has his own bodyguards, as does Satsuki.
* AbusiveParents: Isara and Michiru both had rather terrible fathers. At least Isara's mother is good though.
* AccidentalPervert: Yuuki accidentally walks in on Mifuyu changing early in her route.
* TheAce: Particularly in the VisualNovel, Yuuki seems to think of many of his acquaintances as being essentially this. It's hard to say whether he's most awed by Chisato, President Moori or Satsuki. In all their cases, not only their great skill (at whatever it is) is emphasized, but the fact that they're multiskilled. Beautiful, responsible, intelligent, successful, etc.
** What's surprising is that it turns out that [[spoiler: good-for-nothing, alcoholic ChristmasCake Hazuki]] actually used to be one as well. Satsuki, widely considered the school's current number one Ace figure, has made it her life's mission to attempt to surpass her. [[spoiler: Hazuki is still better than her at shogi.]]
* ACupAngst: Nozomi drinks milk constantly for her 'future.' Hazuki wryly notes that while Nozomi wants to look like her, she herself never drank much milk when growing up.
* AllOfTheOtherReindeer: Aomi is bullied because she's a poor scholarship student.
* AmbiguousGender: Hidaka wears both the male and female student uniform and denies it, so just guess whether they're male or female. Somewhat more likely to be a girl than not, however.
* AnimalMotifs: Michiru is designed with cats in mind, something the cast picks up on once or twice. She's a little moody, very quiet and aloof. Cute and wants attention, but won't ask for it.
* ApologizesALot: Satsuki begins calling Yuuki weird names like Pekojima because he keeps apologizing and apparently there's a funny sound when he bows.
* BadBadActing: To get the monkeys to come back to the club in Isara's route, she, Yuuki and Nozomi all put on a monotone performance about how they need the pair in a way they're sure to be overheard. Even the monkeys aren't fooled, but they play along in the same flat manner because they just wanted an excuse to return.* ArmorPiercingSlap: [[spoiler:Chisato hits Mifuyu across the face when confronting her and Yuuki about their relationship in the latter's route]].
* BedmateReveal: Midway through the game, Yuuki wakes up to find Oboro in his futon. In the anime, Chisato likes jumping into Yuuki's bed to wake him up.
* BelligerentSexualTension: In theory, this is how Chisato and Yuuki's relationship works. Mifuyu and Aomi think so anyway.
* BetaCouple: [[spoiler:Yakumo and Kana]] in Michiru's route.
* BewareTheQuietOnes: [[spoiler:Morishita, when she's trying to find Kana in the hospital.]]
* BewareOfTheNiceOnes: President Mouri spends most of the series as a polite and relatively helpful mentor to the Food Research club(though he makes clear his own motives as well). [[spoiler: When he finally comes into conflict with Yuuki, he doesn't hesitate to verbally tear down or subdue him with bodyguards.]]
* ButLiquorIsQuicker: Subverted. [[spoiler:Hazuki and Satsuki have a drinking game of sorts that is cut short by Yuuki's confession to Satsuki, but she waits to sober up before they do anything together. Though this is mostly because she's also been eating quite a bit and when mixed with the alcohol she feels pretty sick.]]
* BuxomIsBetter: Discussing Satsuki's countless merits in the first episode of the anime eventually devolves to something along the lines of
-->'''Character A:''' "And she's smart!"
-->'''Kii and Ai:''' "And she has huge tits!"
-->'''Character B:''' "And she's diligent!"
-->'''Kii and Ai:''' "She has ''huge'' tits!
-->'''Character C:''' "She's hardworking and polite -"
-->'''Kii and Ai:''' [[OverlyLongGag She has HUGE tits]]"
* CampGay: Yume is gayer than a barrel of monkeys on helium. The fact that only Yuuki never seems to realize it (which is especially hilarious, as Yume is so obviously fixated on seducing him) is used for many jokes in the anime and especially in the Visual Novel.
* CanonForeigner: Ohsawa Yuiko was an original character created for the anime. In the game, the Ohsawa Incident is repeatedly mentioned, but Ohsawa never appears onscreen, and their gender and given name are never revealed.
* TheCharmer: Yuuki is really good at getting along with people, though he doesn't notice it himself. He's able to completely ad lib excellent speeches, which is basically what keeps the campaign going.
* ChickMagnet: Women slightly older than Yuuki sometimes randomly kiss him without knowing why. This is never mentioned again. It's also noted that Yuuki's campaign lost female voters when he start going out with Satsuki but this too is never addressed again.
* ChildhoodFriendRomance: Chisato is your basic tsundere childhood friend love interest.
* ChildhoodMarriagePromise: Yuuki and Chisato were basically asked to make one on behalf of a Mysterious Friend.
* ClingyJealousGirl: Chisato won't make a move herself, but she feels entitled to get angry about Yuuki talking to other girls when she's not around. She gets particularly upset around Isara because she has a lot of chemistry and mutual interests with him.* CrashIntoHello: Yuuki meets Isara, Satsuki, and Mouri in this manner (just Isara in the anime). He lampshades it as a romantic comedy trope every time.
* ComatoseCanary: [[spoiler:Kana reacts to the sound of Yuuki playing her song on her harmonica even in her vegetative state because of course she does.]]
* CommonEyeColors
** PurpleEyes: Yuuki, Mifuyu, Isara, and Michiru
** GreenEyes: Satsuki
* CondescendingCompassion: At first it looks like Mifuyu is calling Yuuki out on apparently pitying Isara [[SubvertedTrope but]] it actually turns out that she just doesn't want him showing too much interest in her for Chisato's sake.
* ContinuityCameo: Ayumu, Matsuri, Mao, and Kimika in the anime adaptation; all four are heroines from "Ima Sugu Onii-chan ni Imouto da tte Iitai!", an upcoming visual novel set in the same universe. Ayumu and Chisato are cousins, and Yuuki knows the four of them through her.
* CoolBigSis: Satsuki's sister Hadzuki, who is the Food Research Club's staff adviser.
* CordonBleughChef: Aomi thanks Yuuki with some odd homemade cookies made with pancake batter and salted margarine because she can't afford anything better. Despite that, they're still very good.
* CovertPervert: Yuuki keeps up a dignified front, but he can actually be pretty shameless. It's pretty low key, though, especially relative to the likes of, say, Majikoi's Yamato.
* CustomUniform: Michiru wears a cardigan instead of the jacket, and Isara just doesn't wear the jacket.
* DatingCatwoman: Satsuki's route.
* DeclarationOfProtection: In Michiru's route, Yuuki decides this after [[spoiler:Michiru is badly triggered and left emotionally unstable and dependent on him]].
* DelayedReaction: Michiru is always slightly behind everyone else when it comes to reactions, leaving her doing things like cheering after everyone else has already stopped or not immediately reacting to people when they speak to her.
* DoubleEntendre: Oboro's speech is full of gay innuendo.
* DraggedIntoDrag: When Chisato, Kii, and Ai cosplay Vocaloid characters, Oboro winds up being dressed up as Luka.
** Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica characters in the anime with him dressed as Homura instead.
* DropInCharacter: Chisato frequently breaks into Yuuki's room, much to his annoyance.
* DudeMagnet: The most popular girl in the story isn't Chisato or Satsuki, though they have their fans. No, it's tiny team mascot Nozomi.
* DwindlingParty: Yuuki alienates the group one by one in Isara's route until one day he arrives at the club and nobody else is there.
* EmbarrassingNickname: Much to their chagrin, Kii and Ai are called the Monkey Duo, punning on their names (''Kii'' as in mon''key'', ''Saru''e as in ''saru'' meaning monkey).
* TheEmpath: Michiru can read people's 'colors' and know how they're feeling or if they're dangerous or not.
* EmotionlessGirl: Michiru never really shows much emotion. [[spoiler:Because that's how she was raised to behave.]]
* EntitledToHaveYou: Chisato feels she deserves Yuuki and gets angry if he goes out with Satsuki and especially Isara. Mifuyu also seems to support Chisato's entitlement issues, though that might be tied into a feeling that [[spoiler:she's been stepping aside for Chisato, so if Chisato doesn't win that makes her own courtesy pointless as well.]]
* EtTuBrute: Non-chan suddenly defects to Moheiji's campaign towards the end of the election in her route. [[spoiler:She was blackmailed.]] ''Everyone'' except Yume and Isara deserts in Isara's route.
* EvenTheGirlsWantHer: Satsuki's female fans are the most distressed when she starts dating Yuuki.
* EveryoneCanSeeIt
* EveryoneHasStandards
** Chisato is a jerk, but she dislikes how the poor scholarship students are treated.
** Hidaka may be a bit of a corrupt journalist, but he? is seriously trying to do a good job and is really upset about the direction that ASP takes in Satsuki's route.
* EyesAlwaysShut: Yakumo always has his eyes closed. The club decides they can trust him anyway eventually. He's shown opening them briefly [[spoiler:when he hears Michiru playing her harmonica, thinking it must be Kana.]]
* FeminineWomenCanCook: Averted. Yuuki seems to be the only person in the food research club that has any interest in cooking, despite it being all girls apart from Oboro.
* FingerSuckHealing
* FirstGirlWins: Chisato isn't the first girl to appear on screen, but she has the first lines.
* FirstNameBasis: Chisato doesn't like formality and insists on calling everyone by their given name. Michiru has Yuuki call her by her given name instead of "Morishita-san" when they get togther in her route; ditto Satsuki. Yuuki and Isara start using each other's given names without having to prompt each other in Isara's route.
* FourLeafClover: Isara likes to hunt down four leaved clovers so that she can make wishes on them.
* FreudianExcuse: Chisato hates chocolate and acts like a jerk because her dead little brother liked it. Yep.
* FunWithAcronyms: The BL club is called FNOS, abbreviated from ''Fu no Su'' or "The YaoiFangirl Nest".
* GayOption: Oboro gets some ShipTease with Yuuki, but no route.
* GirlishPigtails: Chisato, Isara, and Nozomi.
* HairDecorations: Kii and Ai have cutesy hairpins, Satsuki has her red-bobbled hair tie, and Isara wears light blue hair ribbons.
* GracefulLoser: In Michiru's route, Chisato sadly but quietly gives up on Yuuki and says she'll try to move on. In other routes she, uh, doesn't.
* HammerSpace: Mifuyu keeps her notebook PC in her pocket, which Yuuki repeatedly notes should be too small to hold it.
* HappilyAdopted: After a fashion. [[spoiler:Hadzuki and Satsuki are full-blooded relatives but both believed they were only half-sisters, with Satsuki's mom marrying their father (after being his mistress) after Hadzuki's mom died. We find out that Hadzuki's mom was actually barren and could not have given birth to Hadzuki and when she found out, she didn't want to just see her birth mother as her actual mother as she felt it would invalidate the existence of the mother that raised and loved her.]]
* HardDrinkingPartyGirl: Hazuki gets drunk constantly. It's played for laughs in most routes, but not Satsuki's.
* HeroAntagonist: Satsuki doesn't like that the food research club doesn't research food and instead spends all their club money on snacks. This isn't unusual for the school, but you can hardly blame her for not liking how they waste other people's money and then lie about it when she investigates.
* HimeCut: Satsuki.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: Tatsumi's attempts to undermine Satsuki and Yuuki's campaigns by asking why they were meeting alone ends up backfiring completely when she honestly and bluntly states they were on a date, not collaborating on their campaigns. Satsuki and Yuuki also lose some support, especially Satsuki, but it's nothing like the damage Tatsumi takes for publicly interfering in someone's personal affairs.
* HopelessSuitor: Yuuki doesn't take Oboro seriously because their orientations don't match and Hazuki because he prefers to believe that she's joking.
* HotForStudent: Hadzuki has, in the past, come on to Yuuki and even stolen his SacredFirstKiss. He turns her down because he doesn't want to have to deal with the awkward aspects of dating a teacher.
* {{Hypocrite}}
** Tatsumi handing out 100 yen vouchers so people will remember him is terrible, but the food research club handing out candy so people will vote for them through a loophole is a-ok!
** During the later parts of Michiru's route he's also inwardly critical of the security department using funds [[spoiler:to treat Kana without declaring it on their budget]] despite him openly taking club funds just to buy snacks to hang out with his friends.
* IllGirl: Mifuyu gets sick quite frequently. She even had to be held back a year because of it, which made her socially isolated and even less likely to attend until Chisato made friends with her.
* ImageSong: Each of the heroines has one, which is used as the ending theme to her route.
* IndirectKiss: In the anime, Yuuki shares one with Michiru over a harmonica, and only realizes after Mifuyu points it out. In the game, Chisato insists on being the one to test out Hadzuki's harmonica once Yuuki's fixed it in order to avoid this, though it flies over Yuuki's head.
* InsistentPronunciation: Yuuki is very insistent that people don't call him 'Ooshima' instead of the proper 'Oojima.'
* IrrationalHatred: Hazuki knows her dislike for her household isn't fair, but she holds on to it as a way of [[spoiler:cherishing the woman who actually raised her even though Hazuki wasn't her own child.]]
* {{Jerkass}}
** Hidaka is rather manipulative with his reports, twisting everything people say and insulting them as much as possible.
** Chisato herself is also kind of terrible, though mostly to Yuuki.
* JerkassFacade: Hazuki acts harsh around Satsuki, but she does care. She's actually the one person in her family that she doesn't have any kind of mixed feelings about.
* JerkassRealization: The monkeys end up crying and apologizing to Isara after what they said to her.
* LawyerFriendlyCameo: The Vocaloid costumes used for the booth cosplay are all slightly altered from the actual costumes that the software mascots wear. Too, Garage and Mieru appear to be selling Bakemonogatari figurines and Hetalia doujinshi respectively, but the actual names of the works are not said (the Bakemonogatari girls are called by the animals possessing them--Crab-chan and Snake-chan--whereas the England x US doujinshi is mentioned by the ship's portmanteau name).
* LethalChef: Chisato can't cook. She can't even make a riceball into the right shape. It quickly becomes clear that she's incredibly careless.
* LivingEmotionalCrutch: Chisato relies on Yuuki to compensate for Daiki's death. She gives him chocolate, he eats it and says it's great, they continue on with their lives.
* TheLoad: The monkeys are generally obnoxious and worthless.
* LoopholeAbuse: The club gets around the 'no bribes' rule by handing out items that have Yuuki's image attached. You're allowed to give out things having to do with the campaign such as pamphlets. Just because they have candy attached doesn't invalidate that. They also 'borrow' money from Hazuki since it's not technically receiving contributions from a teacher if they pay it back later.
* LoveAtFirstSight: [[spoiler:Michiru responds more to Yuuki than anyone else because she fell for him immediately, though she didn't realize it.]]
* LoveTriangle: The inevitable love triangle comes up, of course, and this time it's with Chisato, Mifuyu and Yuuki. Chisato is the third wheel, but Mifuyu feels it would be a betrayal etc etc.
* MaybeMagicMaybeMundane: some aspects of the story, especially in the visual novel, straddle the line between reality and fantasy, but never to the point of spilling over. Some of the characters Oojima meets have very unusual physical features (such as Garge's head propellor and Tatsumi's mask), but it's implied that for whatever reason Oojima is the only one who sees them so it's possible he's just seeing things. Michiru appears to have [[spoiler: some kind of aura vision]], but she's so weird that it's impossible to say whether it's an actual, supernatural power or just her way of explaining to others her exceptional intuition. Finally, there's Nozomi, who is capable of building seemingly impossible, mad science inventions from scratch... but due to the circumstances under which they're employed, it's hard to say how much of the effects are childhood imagination and a bit of jury-rigging, and how much are genuine hypertechnology built by a bored 18 years old.
* MaliciousMisnaming: The monkey pair always calls Yuuki 'Ooshima' instead of reading his name properly.
* MatchmakerCrush: Mifuyu has a crush on Yuuki even though she's always pushing him towards Chisato.
* TheMillstone
** When gathering support for the preliminaries, Yuuki goes around with a female club member to gather support. Michiru's emotionless attitude and shyness is worse than useless and offends some people they talk to.
** In Isara's route Yuuki does an awesome job of destroying his own campaign from within.
* {{Moe}}: In universe, Chisato and Mifuyu feel that the way Michiru behaves around Yuuki is really endearing. Chisato in particular doesn't even get jealous of her or angry at Yuuki about it even though their behavior has all sorts of warning flags.
* MultipleEndings: There are five heroines. You have to get Chisato's ending first.
* NiceGirl: Aomi is very bright and friendly.
* NonstandardCharacterDesign: Reiji has a constantly shocked expression and weird bulging eyes behind his glasses. His color pallet and shadowing are also completely different. There's also a spinning propeller on top of his head. Except Yuuki might just be delusional.
* NoodleIncident: Something called the Oosawa incident completely discredited Yakumo and by extension the security department, but they don't explain what it was until Michiru's route. Even then, all you learn is that she caused some kind of disturbance and dropped out as a result.
* OfficialCouple: Chisato is the main heroine. The story isn't too subtle about this.
* OnlyFriend: Michiru's only friend is Kana, but she disappeared some time ago and Michiru hasn't been able to find her. Eventually she grows attached to Yuuki as well. Literally. She won't let him go for several days until finally she has to go to class.
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: Isara's little brothers Nii and Chii.
* OperationJealousy: Yuuki tells Mifuyu that he isn't worried about Chisato talking to other guys because she never displays romantic interest in anyone. So Mifuyu passes along the message and as soon as Chisato gets home she begins talking about how great Yakumo is.
* PantyShot
* ParentalAbandonment: Yuuki's father is dead and his mother is always working, Michiru's parents are gone and Isara's mother is frequently working and her dad left. The rest have normal functioning families with a little bit of drama for Satsuki thrown in for good measure, but they don't appear much either.
* ThePollyanna: Isara keeps a smile at all times no matter the circumstances, even if she has to fake it, though that's fairly rare. However, she reaches her limit after [[spoiler:Chisato accidentally gets her shoulder injured by a passing cyclist. If her collarbone is fractured, she can't work. If she can't work, she can't stay in Takafuji or even support the household income.]]
* ProperTightsWithASkirt: Mifuyu in her school uniform.
* ProtagonistCenteredMorality: Somehow, Satsuki is wrong for wanting the food research club to stop basically stealing school funds. Everyone happily supports this corruption, including anticipating increasing their budget despite their complete lack of interest in doing anything useful with their club. Also, it's okay when the food research clubs exploits rules loopholes regarding bribes, but not when the general affairs division does it.
* PunnyName
** ''Ariake Mieru'' is a homonym for "[[ShippingGoggles seeing every possible opening]]", as in ''having a sharp eye for ShipTease moments.'' She's the president of the BoysLove club. Ariake is also the name of the area in Tokyo where Comiket is held.
** The two monkey girls have appropriate names. One contains 'Saru', which means monkey, and the other's name has Mon and Ki at the beginning of her family and given names.
* TheQuietOne: Michiru doesn't speak much. It's rare to get more than a single word out of her, sometimes even a single syllable if she can manage.
* RealMenWearPink: Yuuki loves to cook and, as the game's tagline proclaims, wants a fairytale romance.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Yakumo refuses to allow Yuuki to use the Keitoku program as part of his campaign platform because Yuuki has no concrete, effective plan. When Yuuki foolishly goes ahead and makes it part of his platform anyway, he comes within a hair of abandoning him. [[spoiler:However, when he comes up with one after the club basically falls apart, he agrees that the plan is a good one and supports it.]]
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: In episode 11 of the anime, [[spoiler: When, Yuuki tries asking about Mouri's behavior, he taunts Yuuki about his feelings and guilt towards Chisato.]]
* ReplacementGoldfish: Yuuki doesn't take Chisato's feelings that seriously because she gets him mixed up with her dead little brother in her head. Even if he eventually becomes attracted to her, he refuses to date her unless she proves she sees him as Yuuki and ''only'' Yuuki... [[{{Narm}} by eating some chocolate.]]
* SchoolIdol: Satsuki's campaign uses her popularity without her consent as a basis for their campaign. They take a major hit with their male voters when she begins going out with Yuuki.
* SecondYearProtagonist
* SeinfeldianConversation: In the middle of introductions, everyone gets distracted by the idea of changing one letter in a title and making it sound terrible. Like 'Go Kill A Mockingbird.'
* SelectiveObliviousness
** Yuuki does his best to pretend that Oboro doesn't have a thing for him.
** He also notices Chisato's affections, but generally doesn't take them seriously given her mental issues.
* SenseiChan: Hazuki is the bubbly, flighty adviser for the club.
* SeriousBusiness: Apparently, student council members need bodyguards, spies and large funds for their campaigns. [[spoiler:Even murdering hospital patients is fair game, and said person is only in the hospital because Yakumo was trying to clear up the security department's corruption.]]
* SheIsNotMyGirlfriend: Most people seem to assume Yuuki is dating Chisato, much to his annoyance.
* ShipperOnDeck: Chisato and Yuuki are frequently physically close to each other, so Mifuyu thinks they make a great couple. Chisato's onesided affection also makes her think that Yuuki should reciprocate and act romantically in return.
* SiblingTriangle: Yuuki gets into one when Hazuki thinks he and Satsuki might like each other. He's not sure if Hazuki is really serious or not, though.
* SoapOperaDisease: Whatever Mifuyu has, it causes her to faint when stressed, excludes her from taking part in hard physical labor, implied to cause her to miss school often (at one point Chisato asks her whether it's okay for her to skip class because she might get into serious trouble if she misses anymore), and was apparently a lot worse until she had her surgery a few years back. Said surgery took her a year to recover from and left a long vertical scar on the right side of her abdomen. What disease it exactly is, nobody tells and nobody can know.
* SoAverageItsOkay: InUniverse, the movie Michiru and Yuuki watch together is stunningly mediocre. Average dialogue, direction, acting, everything.
* StudentTeacherRomance: Hazuki flirts with Yuuki quite frequently and has even kissed him before, but sadly, he won't take her seriously.
* SupremeChef: Oojima. It's the one thing about which he's confident and the one skill for which ''everyone'' invariably lauds him. In particular, a type of cream and fruit cake he's invented which was nicknamed the "Oojima Roll" is treated by some characters as being like something between a taste of paradise and ''crack cocaine''. Hazuki also treats his coming over to her place to make dinner like a festival.
** Aomi is implied to be just as good a cook as Yuuki, if not better, likely due to always having to make food for her brothers. Unlike Oojima, who came from an upper-middle class family, Aomi is very poor and as a result her cooking is characterized by a lot of improvisation, experimentation and the replacement of traditional ingredients with the cheapest possible equivalent (such as using margarine and ''pancake mix'' to make cookies instead of butter and flour, because these were the things she happened to have in the kitchen). It's a testament to her cooking skills that this only ever results in creations which taste unique and delicious, rather than simply cheap.
** Shinonome doesn't cook per-se, but she does bake confectioneries and knows a great deal about them, due to wishing to one day inherit her parents confectionery business. In one route of the VisualNovel, a "Shinonome Roll" she invents after being inspired by Yuuki's Oojima Rolls is declared even tastier and takes over as everyone's favorite cake.
*
* SurvivorsGuilt: Chisato blames herself for Daiki's death because she had to share a treat with him earlier that day and it wasn't his favorite chocolate. The horror.
* SweetTooth: Satsukis is very passionate when it comes to cakes and confections. She even commands Yuuki to stop talking to her so she can concentrate fully on the experience.
* TheTease: Hazuki likes to flirt with Yuuki. Sadly, she's not a romance option even if her interest is genuine.
* ThereAreNoTherapists: Averted for once; when Michiru breaks down in her route, she's handed over to professional care. [[spoiler:She still doesn't manage to recover fully until she and Yuuki get a chance to sit down and talk it out, though.]]
* ThirdPersonPerson: Nozomi refers to herself as Non-chan. So does almost everyone else.
* ThoseTwoGuys: The monkeys never appear separately and don't even have distinct personalities beyond disliking different foods. They're even exactly the same height with the same measurements.
* TokenMiniMoe: Michiru is your obligatory small girl here. There's also Nozomi, but she's only a heroine in the PSP version.
* {{Tsundere}}
** Chisato is kind of a jerk. She won't show any affection herself, but punishes Yuuki when he fails to display interest in her.
** In Michiru's route [[spoiler:her friend Kana is all tsuntsun towards Yakumo but she does like him. She just doesn't want to admit it.]]
* TwelveEpisodeAnime
* TykeBomb: Apparently, [[spoiler:the security division]] needs information about the school so much that they get to [[spoiler:brainwash students and have them infiltrate groups for information.]]
* UnfortunateNames: Everyone in the club eats Yaoi Sticks.
* UnusuallyUninterestingSight: Nobody comments on the candidate wearing a mask or how Reiji has a spinning propeller on his head. Yuuki wonders if maybe he's hallucinating as a result.
* WaifFu: Michiru.
* WhatIsThisFeeling: Both Yuuki and Non-chan in the latter's route.
* WhenSheSmiles
** Aomi is cute, but nothing really special. However, when she smiles Yuuki thinks she's gorgeous.
** Michiru is generally considered unremarkable and has a difficult time emoting, but if you ''can'' get a smile out of her it's generally considered very impressive.
* WhereAreTheyNowEpilogue: Technically true for all routes, but especially apparent in Non-chan's.
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: Satsuki is terrified of earthquakes.
* YaoiFangirl: Mieru has her own BL club.
* YouNeverAsked: Hadzuki [[spoiler:is the mysterious non-affiliated ASP candidate from seven years ago.
