* Ling Xiaoyu has a school uniform as an 'optional' costume in her appearances in ''{{Tekken}}''. Often she's wearing it in her ending animations, too.

* ''Manga/{{Saikano}}''
* ''Manga/GreatTeacherOnizuka''
* The high school uniforms in ''{{Anime/Mai-HiME}}'' just have the short skirt part; the middle school uniforms are the classic white-with-blue-trim ''seeraa'' style. Nao spices hers up with ZettaiRyouiki.

* ''Manga/{{InuYasha}}'': Kagome is [[SchoolUniformsAreTheNewBlack rarely seen outside of her school uniform]]; in this case, hers is green and white with a full-coverage top and a miniskirt.

This is mainly a Japanese cultural trope but is found prominently in anime. The Western equivalent is CatholicSchoolGirlsRule. However, given that many Japanese high schools have abandoned the sailor uniform, which nowadays is a characteristic indicator of ''middle school'' girls, more professional-esque styles of uniform have become a popular replacement - popular not just among schools but also among viewers - so the two are beginning to merge. Joshikousei are very prominent in anime/manga, to the point where the far majority of female characters will either be high school girls or at the very least be in the same age group (should high school not exist or should their occupation prevent them from going to school). In fact, one of the main reasons why most male protagonists are {{ordinary highschool student}}s is so they can be surrounded by high school girls.

* For ''{{Amanchu}}'', Kozue Amano designed some very pretty school uniforms, with hints to the outfits worn by the undines in her other main work, ''{{Manga/ARIA}}''. The frilly petticoats really set them apart, although they might be a bit warm in summer. And they may also not be the best fit for more chubby students.

Literally "a female high school student", but the term is invariably used to refer specifically to cute high school girls wearing SailorFuku, or sailor suit-styled uniforms. Many Japanese men refer to them under the nickname "JK" or "JC". Note that the term may be used interchangeably with 'seifuku', which means any general "school uniform", but is often used to describe the sailor outfits in particular. Although ''[[GratuitousEnglish seeraa]]fuku'' are not as common now in Japan as they once were, the vast majority of anime girls still wear them.

* Speaking of ''TokimekiMemorial'' 's [[SpiritualSuccessor Spiritual Successors]], one of them, ''VideoGame/MitsumeteKnight'', despite being in a medieval / fantasy setting instead of an High School one, has roughly 1/3 of its main girls cast (5 out of 16) composed of school girls, because in the country the mercenary main protagonist fights for, the military grounds he trains at are located next to the country's main Academy campus.
