It’s hard to be the trailblazer. Chizuru Yukimura (Miku Ono) is the first female student to enroll in the prestigious Hakuou Academy, which had previously been an all-boys’ elite school before it adopted co-education. Chizuru has a childhood friend, Heisuke Todo (Mashu Ishiwatari), to watch out for her at the school, but she still feels tremendous pressure to do well and prove herself as a woman. If she doesn’t do well on an upcoming test, she faces stiff penalties from Toshizo Hijikata (Yuichi Nakamura), the assistant principal. Can Chizuru withstand the pressures at Hakuou Academy? “Hakuouki SSL: Sweet School Life” is a 2015 Japanese television drama directed by Kensaku Miyashita. The six-episode live-action series is based on a video game of the same title. It was followed by “Hakuouki SSL: Sweet School Life The Movie” in 2016.
