skip and loafer

Misaki Takamatsu’s romantic comedy manga Skip and Loafer is on the way to the screen, and we most recently got word of an April 2023 premiere date. Now that timing has been narrowed down to April 4, and you can check out more of what’s in store thanks to a new trailer and key visual.

Along with the trailer below we have previews for the theme songs. The opening theme song is “Mellow” by Keina Suda and the ending theme song is “Hanauta to Mawarimichi” (“Humming and Detours”) by Rikako Aida. 

Kotomi Deai (Silver Spoon) is directing the Skip and Loafer anime and handling series composition, with Manami Umeshita (animation director on March comes in like a lion) on character designs and Takatsugu Wakabayashi (Lucifer and the Biscuit Hammer) on music for the P.A. Works production. 

Crunchyroll plans to simulcast the series as it airs in Japan and describes it like so:

Iwakura Mitsumi graduated from a small middle school in the countryside and entered a top-tier high school in Tokyo at the head of the class. This child prodigy, who moved to Tokyo alone with a perfect life plan, is smart and gets good grades… but her social understanding isn’t quite on the same wavelength as others. This means that she sometimes makes mistakes, but her easygoing nature sways her classmates little by little, and all their different personalities are coming together before they know it. They meet and gradually come to know each other, and before long they understand each other well. Everyone experiences pent-up feelings and frustrations, but it is our friends who give us a chance at mutual understanding. This story may start out with some discord, but it becomes a happy school-life comedy before you know it!
