Action anime such as Demon Slayer and Hell’s Paradise may be among the most anticipated shows of the Spring 23 season, but there are also lots of chill shows to look forward to. One of those is Skip and Loafer, which recently got a new trailer that revealed its April release date.

As its title implies, Skip and Loafer is an upcoming romantic comedy and slice-of-life series that should be a welcome break after watching the upcoming action shows of the season.

After announcing new cast members back in January, Skip and Loafer finally got a new trailer that gave fans a better taste of what to expect.

The trailer highlights the main character, Mitsumi Iwakura, a student from a small town who recently started going to a prestigious university in Tokyo.

As you may have expected, she gets overwhelmed. Thankfully, she comes across helpful folks, including her laid-back classmate, Sosuke Shima.

Check out the new trailer here:

Mitsumi and Sosuke are the show’s two main characters, and they are voiced by Tomoyo Kurosawa and Akinori Egoshi, respectively.

Kurosawa is a popular voice actress whom many anime fans know as Rebecca in Cyberpunk: Edgerunners and Kumiko Omae in Hibike! Euphonium.

Meanwhile, Egoshi has voiced supporting characters such as Cona in Overlord.

They are joined by other well-known voice actors in supporting roles, including Maaya Uchida (Angel Devil in Chainsaw Man) as Yuzuki Murashige and Megumi Han (Gon in Hunter x Hunter 2011) as Makoto Kurume.
