Akebi’s Sailor Uniform is produced at CloverWorks (Fate/Grand Order – Absolute Demonic Front: Babylonia) and began on January 8, with Crunchyroll to stream the series. Crunchyroll describes the series as such:
It’s Komichi Akebi’s first year of junior high and she has her heart set on one thing: Robai Private Academy’s sailor uniform. As the next chapter of her life gets closer, she dreams of all the exciting new experiences she’ll get to have—school lunches, classes, club activities, and of course, making lots of friends! With her favorite outfit on, Komichi feels ready for anything.
