Visual novel fan translation group Basic Translations has recently released a full translation patch for the VN eroge Koi to Senkyo to Chocolate.
Also known by the English name of Love, Election and Chocolate, Koi to Senkyo to Chocolate was initially released in Japan in by the end of 2010 by visual novel maker sprite. The VN became popular enough to warrant two manga and a 12-episode anime adaptation, as well as a PlayStation Portable version released in 2012 called Love, Election and Chocolate Portable. In July of this year, an updated version of the game called Koi to Senkyo to Chocolate – The Best was released, improving on some aspects of the original and adding support for more operating systems.
Love, Election and Chocolate follows the protagonist Yuuki Oujima, who attends Takafuji Private Academy, a large school with over 6,000 students. Yuuki is a member of the Food Research Club, abbreviated as FRC or “Shokken”, along with seven others, including his childhood friend Chisato Sumiyoshi. The members leisurely spend their time in the club not engaging in many activities. When the election of the next student council president comes up, the front runner Satsuki Shinonome proposes that clubs that have no merit should be sorted out and abolished. The Food Research Club seeks advice from the current student council president Yakumo Mouri, who suggests Yuuki run in the election as an opposing candidate. Yuuki learns about the issues facing the school and decides to run in the election.
The game has 5 main plotlines: one for each main heroine and a common route with multiple choices directing player into one of the 5 alternate stories. If you would like to find out more info about the game’s characters, you can always visit the game’s VNDB page.
