Interesting fan theory about the mismatched colors of Yuki Takeya's sailor suit
Fans of the moe / survival horror manga and TV anime School-Live! may have wondered why the main character, Yuki Takeya, wears a school uniform whose colors do not match those of her fellow classmates. Twitter user @mikko367 believes that they have found an explanation that gives the visual choices a deeper, psychological meaning:
「がっこうぐらし！」で、ゆきとクラスメイトの人達だけなんで制服の色違うんだろうって感じてたから、階調の反転やってみたら、そのまさかだったよね。 pic.twitter.com/wT92Pme0ZO— みっこ@ノマカプ＆百合スキー (@mikko367) July 10, 2015
As @mikko367 observes, 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, which is a clever use of visual symbolism if ever I've seen one.
