* ''Anime/DemashitaPowerpuffGirlsZ'', an anime adaptation of ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'', featured the girls as three unrelated typical 12 year-olds that were given superpowers. It played like a {{Magical|Girl}}... 'scuse me, [[InsistentTerminology Scientific]] [[MagicalGirl Girl]] series.

Added DiffLines:

** ''Fanfic/CafeLiegeois'' uses Anna and Elsa being college students as a backdrop for the plot. They don't actually spend time in school but there are references to their school work here and there. Anna is an art major while Elsa is an architect major (despite being blind, which surprises people).

* Wildly popular author Atomicskull did it brilliantly with ''[[http://atomicskull.livejournal.com/11921.html#cutid1 Never Know Your Story Like I Do]]'', following Kirk and [=McCoy=] from elementary all the way through grad school.

The High School A.U. is an AlternateUniverseFic that may or may not resemble the original universe, but the main premise is that most or all of the characters from whatever universe the story draws from are [[EveryoneWentToSchoolTogether all in an academic setting]]. Usually, this happens to be high school, although [[CollegeIsHighSchoolPartTwo college is not unheard of]].

** For a specific example, there's the SliceOfLife fan comic ''Four Seasons House''[[note]]So named because the season-themed characters -- Letty Whiterock, Lily White, Yuuka Kazami, and the Aki sisters -- are siblings[[/note]]. Unlike many examples, the characters aren't all in the same grade; they range from preschoolers all the way up to adults. Everyone is an ordinary human being and there are no fantastic powers outside of Reimu, Mouko and Youmu being able to [[ISeeDeadPeople See Dead People]]. The strangest part overall is some of the character relations: Kanako is said to be Sanae's father, but she hasn't been {{Gender Flip}}ped or otherwise altered; meanwhile, her mother is Suwako, who's actually '''younger''' than her. And yes, this makes just as little sense to the characters themselves as it does to the readers.

* This happened in an episode of the ''Anime/TenchiMuyo'' TV series. Not content to leave it at that, however, the writers also threw in {{Magical Girl}}s. Unsurprisingly, given the amoeba-like manner in which ''TenchiMuyo'' split off [[AlternateContinuity alternate continuities]], this world became a series all on its own. Two different series, in fact.

*** Strangely, Manga/XxxHOLiC should qualify as a HSU anyway; the teenage leads are high school students and we sometimes see them at school, albeit not in classes. It's just not the main focus.

* The three-page manga "Red-Hair of Class 3-Sea TIME" takes ''OnePiece'' characters and sticks them into the clichéd story of an inspirational teacher who turns around a class of delinquents [[spoiler:Specifically, they're all inspired to become pirates]]. With Luffy as the all-out study freak jukensei.

* ''Manga/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaINNOCENT'' is a manga series used to advertise a [[CollectibleCardGame Collectible Card]] MobilePhoneGame for ''Franchise/LyricalNanoha''...and it is unabashedly a Grade School AU. The magic powers have been replaced with virtual card games, and all of the non-human characters are now humans (except the familiars, which are just normal animals). [[FixFic We also have a good Precia and six other canonically dead characters that aren't dead.]][[note]]seven if you include ''[[MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaAsPortable Gears of Destiny]]'' continuity.[[/note]]

* Not exactly an ''AU'', but [[LightNovel/{{Slayers}} Slayers NEXT]] and [[LightNovel/{{Slayers}} TRY]] feature fun little illustrations that bookend the commercial breaks, like a lot of anime do. Sometimes they actually pertain to the episode, but usually they're just fun illustrations showing what the characters would look like in a more modern setting. Favorites include [[GenkiGirl Amelia]] the sailor-style school girl, Zelgadis the rock star, and Gourry as a daycare attendent.

* ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'' plays with the trope-- since the original series already takes place (for half of its run anyway) in a junior high school, one of the spinoffs takes place in a '''kindergarten''' instead, with the students aged down and the (originally child prodigy) teacher and his best friend '''aged up''' to adults.
