Skip and Loafer TV Anime Unveils Teaser Video, Cast, Staff
The official website for the television anime of Misaki Takamatsu’s Skip and Loafer (Skip to Loafer) manga revealed on Tuesday a teaser video, main cast, staff, and character visuals.
The main cast includes:
- Tomoyo Kurosawa as Mitsumi Iwakura
- Akinori Egoshi as Sо̄suke Shima
Kotomi Deai (Natsume’s Book of Friends) is directing the anime and handling series composition at P.A. Works. Manami Umeshita (Stella Women’s Academy, High School Division Class C3) is designing the characters and serving as animation director. Takatsugu Wakabayashi (Dragonar Academy) is composing the music.
Seven Seas Entertainment is releasing the manga digitally and in print in English, and it describes the story:
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?
Takamatsu launched the manga in Kodansha’s Monthly Afternoon magazine in August 2018. Kodansha published the manga’s seventh compiled book volume on Wednesday.
The manga ranked #7 in manga for male readers in the 2020 edition of Takarajimasha’s Kono Manga ga Sugoi! (This Manga Is Amazing!) guidebook. It was nominated in the 13th Manga Taisho awards in 2020, and was also nominated in the Best General Manga category of Kodansha’s 44th annual Manga Awards in 2020.
