This week on Rookie Pirate Radio, Allyson Johnson joins Jon Negroni (me) and Travis Hymas to discuss Skip and Loafer, a new slice-of-life high school anime that just concluded its first season on Crunchyroll. Based on the manga written and illustrated by Misaki Takamatsu and produced by P.A. Works (also known for Buddy Daddies), Skip and Loafer has been a nominal, wholesome favorite this past season. So we unpack what it is about this story that has us rooting for Mitsumi, Shima, and their electric group of friends.
We want your feedback! If you have any questions, corrections, or anything else on your mind, please leave us a comment below. You can also email us (firstname.lastname@example.org) or join our Discord and hang out with us on the anime server (or any server!)
