Skip and Loafer TV Anime Creditless OP Depicts Youth in Bloom

Heroine Mitsumi Iwakura flashes a smile and a thumb's up in the outdoor walkway of an overpass in a scene from the upcoming Skip and Loafer TV anime.


Adolescence is exuberant and a little bit awkward in the peppy, credit-free opening animation sequence for Skip and Loafer, an upcoming TV anime based on the high school romantic comedy manga by Misaki Takamatsu. The video (below) features the official opening theme song for the series, entitled “Mellow”, which is performed by Keina Suda.

The original Skip and Loafer manga is serialized in Kodansha’s Monthly Afternoon manga magazine, and an English language version is also available from Seven Seas Entertainment. The TV anime adaptation is written and directed by Kotomi Deai and features animation production by P.A. Works. Crunchyroll describes the story of Skip and Loafer as follows:


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!


Skip and Loafer will broadcast in Japan on TOKYO MX and other stations beginning on April 5, 2023, and it will also stream on Crunchyroll as part of the spring 2023 anime simulcast lineup.
