An ambitious girl struggling with her new life in a big city and a boy who is calm and cool-headed become high school classmates. As they begin to know each other and become friends, where will their relationship end with their differing approaches to a happy future?
On Saturday, the official website for the Skip and Loafer anime series released a second trailer and a new key visual. The video reveals the theme song artists and the exact release date. It will debut on April 4, and Crunchyroll will stream the series worldwide.
The trailer almost completely focuses on the two main characters Mitsumi Iwakura and Sōsuke Shima. The former can be seen going through multiple emotions, which include a determination to succeed and confusion in figuring out her new life.
Keina Suda performs the opening song “Mellow” which is also featured in the video. The ending song “Hanauta to Mawari Michi”(Humming and Detour) is performed by Rikako Aida.
The following cast has been revealed by the staff:
|Mitsumi Iwakura||Tomoyo Kurosawa||Göll (Record of Ragnarok)|
|Sо̄suke Shima||Akinori Egoshi||Dexter Culastor (Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans)|
|Mika Egashira||Yuka Terasaki||Sōta Hori (Horimiya)|
|Yuzuki Murashige||Maaya Uchida||Yūki Yoshino (Food Wars! Shokugeki no Soma)|
|Makoto Kurume||Megumi Han||Gon Freecss (Hunter × Hunter)|
Kotomi Deai is directing and writing Skip and Loafer, with P.A. Works as the animating studio for the series. Manami Umeshita is designing the characters for the anime. Takatsugu Wakabayashi is the music composer.
Although high-school romance with opposite personalities is not a unique theme, the added element of a countryside student getting familiar with a new city and a determination to make it big makes it worth some curiosity.

The manga focuses on Mitsumi who is from a backward area in Japan and moves to Tokyo for attending high school. Sosuke is an ikemen and he meets Mitsumi on her first day at the new school. Mitsumi is focused on her career, unaware of what the big city has in store for her.
