Skip and Loafer Spring Visual Marks Anime’s 1st Anniversary

skip and loafer
Somehow it’s already been a year since the excellent Skip and Loafer anime first aired. The adaptation of Misaki Takamatsu’s manga of the same name first kicked off on April 4, 2024, so the official accounts celebrated this week with a special spring visual.

The visual in question comes from character designer Manami Umeshita, and you can see the full illustration below.

Kotomi Deai (Silver Spoon) directed the Skip and Loafer anime and handled 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 streamed the series as it aired 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!
