When beautiful Tooru transferred to an all-boys school, he received a warm welcome...but little did he know that his new classmates had nominated him for the academy's "Princess System." The lovely campus "Princesses" must dress as girls (in frilly Gothic Lolita costumes) at school events in order to lighten the stolid masculine atmosphere. Tooru balks at first, but soon comes to realize the advantages of being a "Princess."
Eeew! Who comes up with these ideas? Who is the audience for this? I'm really not sure I want to know. Is this for the Yaoi crowd?
AnimeNFO categorizes it as "shounen ai" (boy love), which is even more bleah/ick/eew.

But you DO need to recognize, if not individual characters, at least the uniform. It'll show up here and there.
As far as the yaoi stuff, well, okay, so long as I don't have to watch it - and if it stays in its own series, I don't have to watch it. It's when it comes and invades series I'm otherwise watching that it becomes a problem...

Now turn the dial up to 11. ;p (Or more realistically, in the hundreds. This is the sort of thing an arcade programmer would look at you and say "man, I can't do that to the poor gamer!" They call it curtain-fire because it's more or less descriptive.)
Best-known example are the Touhou games - if you're up for some serious challenge, download one of the demos. I personally can't get past 'em on anything harder than "normal", much less the full games. But it's quite fun.

Lots and lots of squeeing teenaged girls wearing goofy cosplay hats.
I feel soiled.
