A new anime adaptation is in production as the Skip and Loafer property was revealed back in November 2021 as being in the works. Crunchyroll previously revealed that the series will be available to viewers in North America, Central America, South America, Europe, Africa, Oceania, the Middle East, and CIS.
With the show seeing an April 4th, 2023 premiere for it, Crunchyroll has now added a new clip from the show from the tenth episode where Shima makes Mitsuri sing!
The series has Kotomi Deai directing it and working on the series composition while Manami Umeshita is on board as the character designer and chief animation supervisor with PA Works handling the animation production.
The Japanese cast includes:
- Tomoyo Kurosawa as Mitsumi
- Akinori Egoshi as Shima

- Maaya Uchida as Yuzuki Murashige
- Megumi Han as Makoto Kurume
The season features the opening theme song “Mellow” from Keina Suda while the ending theme song is “Hanauta to Mawari Michi” from Rikako Aida.
The manga series comes from Misaki Takamatsu which began in 2018 as serialized in Afternoon magazine. It has six volumes out so far in Japan and is ongoing. Seven Seas Entertainment is releasing the manga in English.
Plot Concept: Excellent student Iwakura Mitsumi has always dreamt about leaving her small town, going to a prestigious university, and making positive change in the world. But she’s so focused on reaching her goals that she’s not prepared for the very different (and overwhelming) city life that awaits her in a Tokyo high school. Luckily, she makes fast friends with Shima Sousuke, a handsome classmate who’s as laid-back as she is over-prepared. Can this naive country girl make it big in Tokyo with Sousuke by her side? This charming manga was nominated for the 2020 Manga Taisho Award and is sure to skip its way into your heart.
