Having recently moved from her small backwater town in Ishikawa Prefecture to attend a prestigious high school in Tokyo, Mitsumi Iwakura plans on using her high school career as a launchpad for her dream of going to law school and becoming a public servant; however, she also recognizes the need to occasionally have fun and make friends. To that end, she's gone so far as to map out her entire life ahead of time, but all of her preparation flies out the window on the first day of school.

Mitsumi misses her train stop and is about to be late to the entrance ceremony, which is especially troublesome because she is supposed to give a speech as the new students' representative. While lamenting her situation, Sousuke Shima—a handsome first-year student who is also late—sees her and offers to walk with her to school. They eventually make it to school, although Mitsumi has some unfortunate accidents soon after that leave a less-than-favorable impression on everyone. In spite of her misfortune, her classmates soon take notice of Mitsumi and Sousuke's chemistry, despite their differing personas.

With the new year already off to an interesting start, Mitsumi is eager to get to know her classmates better and get involved at her school. Only time will tell if this country bumpkin can make it in the city, but one thing has become certain: she definitely won't be alone on her journey!

I'll try to keep it short: this is one of the best mangas I've ever read.
Seriously though, if you like slice of life, give it a chance. Oh you don't like it as much? Give it a chance still!
Basically, Skip and Loafer has the whole package:
- great plot progression (doesn't linger where it shouldn't)
- deep characters (they are the focus, nobody seems shallow, even secondary characters)
- subversion of tired tropes (nobody is a stereotype without subversion and/or justification)
- diversity (characters come in all shapes and sizes)
- gorgeous drawings (fluid and suits the vibe/message of the manga)
- non forced humor (lots of naturally funny occurrences and ...

If you've ever found yourself deeply frustrated with the typical 'shoujo' or romances in manga/anime, reading this will bring your faith back to well-written romance.

Skip to Loafer paints a picture of human connection - something that is rarely well articulated with such nuance and charm in romance manga/anime.

Finally, a romance with nuanced characters?

As a 20 year old, reading this manga brought myself back to my highschool days immediately and I was so fascinated with how well the author had managed to encapsulate not only the nostalgic struggle of highschoolers, but also a lot of issues that even adults still struggle to come to terms with.

I ...

Refreshing and Realistic: I cannot stress enough how amazing this series is!!!

Skip and Loafer is quite possibly the best coming-of-age romantic comedy in the decade and definitely in this new era of shoujo series. It has the fun and carefree nostalgia of old shoujo while serving a step in the right direction for the genre as a whole with its sincerity and welcomed seriousness. Its cast of realistically driven and portrayed characters are a delight! The situations they get into are heartwarming but they also productively show the internal conflicts of the characters. At first glance this show may not seem to offer much, but ...
