(One episode watched):

Based on the title, I had figured that this would probably be a fanservice-heavy show which pandered to the lusts of guys who felt young girls in school uniforms were hot. But shows like that don't have the quality artwork and distinctive character designs that this one displayed right from the start. OK, but where could this be going? How can an entire series be built around the wish of one girl, Komichi, to wear an old style girl's school uniform (probably because her favorite idol wears one while on stage)? It turns out that the standard uniform of Komichi's new school has been changed since her mother went there, and as a result she's the only student who shows up wearing the sailor type. But, since its nostalgic and they were partly to blame for the misunderstanding, the administration grants her special permission to wear this now unusual outfit. Which means she will inevitably stand out, drawing attention to herself in an unfamiliar school where many of the student come from a somewhat higher class than she does. 'The nail that stands up gets hammered down' is an old Japanese proverb. It's a clever twist which transformed what had seemed a confusing premise into a tantalizing one. The ED sequence (IIRC) suggests that by the end everyone will be wearing sailor outfits.
