Fans of the anime adaptation of Norimitsu Kaihou and Sadoru Chiba’s moe / survival horror Gakkou Gurashi! manga have wondered why the main character, Yuki Takeya, has different a school uniform than the rest of the main cast. A Japanese Twitter user believes that they have found an explanation that gives the visual choices a deeper, psychological meaning.
He also stated that if you place the girls side by side and reverse the color palettes, the colors of their uniforms match perfectly.
This suggests that Yuki’s mismatched uniform is actually reflective of her ‘inverted’ psychological state.
