Key takeaways from Skip to Loafer: Mid-Season Review

  • The character writing in Skip to Loafer is excellent, with the main character Mitsumi’s growth being particularly satisfying to watch.
  • The character interactions and relationships are a highlight of the anime, making the viewer interested in knowing more about the characters.
  • While the plot is nothing new, the strong character work makes up for it, and the animation could use some improvement.

Skip to Loafer - 01 - 13 - Lost in Anime

As you may know, rom-com is a pretty diverse and popular genre in anime. And this is one genre I am quite fond of, personally speaking. Seriously, I’d always pick a good rom-com over a harem anime any day. While there are some exceptions to this, this is a rule that I generally stick to. So of course seeing the Skip to Loafer is a rom-com anime, I was always going to watch it. What I didn’t realize was just how much I’d end up digging it.

So welcome back to another one of my mid-season reviews. Today we are talking about of course. Skip to Loafer. Initially, I compared it a lot to Kmi ni Todoke. While I still get some similar vibes to it, this anime has slowly grown into its own thing and it is one of the more slept-on animes in this season. So let’s talk about it.

What do I think about Skip to Loafer so far?

One thing I really adore about Skip to Loafer is the character writing. The character writing is amazing. Seeing how Mitsumi adapts to her new surroundings and new people is really satisfying. It is very easy to tell from her personality that she never had an environment like Tokyo while growing up.
That is why she’s so on the edge all the time. She is not really used to dealing with people who are so unreserved with themselves. And honestly, all this makes her a very relatable character.

Mistsumi’s growth as a character alone is enough to make this anime worth the watch for me. But there is quite a bit more than that. The character interactions and relationships in general are such a m highlight of this anime. I want to know more about these characters, I want to see them talk and interact more. This kind of interest is hard to develop and this anime managed to do that pretty well.

On the downside though, the plot is nothing new. Well, it is a rom-com SOL, I don’t really expect a complex plot or something out of it. And the character work makes up for the mid-tier plot. The animations can use a bit of improvement too. But both of these things are kind of irrelevant given the nature of the anime.

Conclusion

So as of right now, I’d easily give Skip to Loafer an 8/10 purely because of the solid character work. That is what I think though so let me know what you guys think in the comments below. I will take my leave here. See ya!!
