"At Miyagami Private Academy, there is a group of girls, who have more power and authority than any of the faculty members. Miyagami Academy Maximum Authority-Wielding Best Student Council. Otherwise known as: Best Student Council!"
Best Student Council - Gokujou Seitokai in Japanese is the story of a down-on-her-luck parentally-abandoned girl named Rino Randou trying to make her way through life, or at least school. She enrolls at Miyagami Private Academy, an all-girls school, at the written recommendation of the shadowy "Mr. Poppit", assured that everything including room and board will be taken care of — only to see that the apartment which had been provided for her had been burned down by a rampant arsonist. So, with only her clothes, luggage, a few yen, and her puppet - named Pucchan. to her name, Rino has only one option: Become a member of the student government in order to gain the free room and board at the school dorms afforded only to members of the Best Student Council.For the most part, Best Student Council is quite episodic, and tends to focus on a single character per episode. Barring the beginning - which causes many people vague recollections of Mai-HiME., Best Student Council is a schoolyard comedy with drama at a few key moments. Don't expect too much seriousness out of a series that has a talking hand puppet as a major character, though.The Japanese title is a contraction of the ending phrase of the narration: "Gokudai Kengen Hoyuu — Saijoukyuu Seitokai".Dubbed by ADV Films, and released in early 2007.
Color Failure - Happens to Kaori in the first episode, when she loses the election to Rino. Later happens to Rino when Pucchan is taken away from her, Ayumu even comments on this..
Continuity Cavalcade - Almost every character who appeared in a single episode shows up again in episode 25.
Curtains Match the Window - Most of the main characters. Cyndi is one notable exception, to help emphasise her half-foreign ancestory.
