According to IT media, Urawanishi High School, on which "Ookiku Furikabutte
" was modeled, became highly popular among the students. As a result, the competitive rate of this year's entrance examination reached 7.13, which is the highest of all the public high schools in Saitama Prefecture. The producers of the anime provided one of the scenes to the high school and it has been used in the handbook and the official website.
"Ace wo Nerae!
