The Most Magical Schoolgirl

Anna Yano has been completely upstaged and out-kawaiied by the schoolgirl guest star of her new music video for Shape My Story, the theme to Stella Women’s Academy, High School Division Class C3. Meet Mr. Hideki Kobayashi.

Huh? What? No, that’s not a typo! Kobayashi-san, better know as Sailorfuku Ojisan, is an underground legend in Tokyo. Nothing brightens your day like catching a glance of him frolicking around town with his trademark uniform and braided beard. I speak from experience, having met him at a bookstore in Shinjuku. People were lining up to take a photo with him and he was all smiles as he obliged. From what I hear he was the life of the party at Japan Expo in France as well.

Don’t take my word for it, see for yourself in the music video! There’s also an insane replica of one of the guns used in the show near the end.
