Seven Seas Entertainment is delighted to announce the license acquisition of the manga series Skip and Loafer by Misaki Takamatsu, the critically acclaimed romantic comedy about a country girl chasing her dreams in Tokyo!
The synopsis for Skip and Loafer is: 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? This charming manga was nominated for the 2020 Manga Taisho Award and is sure to skip its way into your heart.
Seven Seas will publish the manga series Skip and Loafer for the first time in North America in print and digital platforms in single volume editions. Volume 1 will be released in August 2021 for $12.99 USA / $16.99 CAN.
