Skip And Loafer – Season 1 Episode 11 Recap & Review

Hype And Excitement

In Skip And Loafer episode 11, the school event gets started and Mitsumi along with other students collaborate to make sure it is an enormous success. A sizable crowd shows up to have fun, similar to every other year.

Although Kazakami ends up taking the preparations lightly, Tokiko is overanalyzing every step. She is naturally irritated because she is preoccupied with following a methodical process for everything. Meanwhile, Shima plays an important role in the theatrical performance and doesn’t seem to be troubled because of his past.

Yuzuki displays her pet’s portrait inside the Art Space in the hopes that people passing by will be taken aback. Unfortunately, she continues to get hit on by guys and learns if one is attractive looking, nobody really notices all that effort one puts into the things they do. When Makoto observes this, she makes it a point to tell her friends about Yuzuki’s artwork. Thereafter, she compliments her work while keeping a distance.

On the other hand, one of Mitsumi’s acquaintances informs her of the fact that Takizawa-senpai has been seeing Hayami for the past few days.

A mother asks her kid if he would like an egg sandwich during the school event. The young child observes a bunch of people while she is purchasing one and wonders what they are all looking at. While the mother is out getting sandwiches, he heads over to the opposite side. Once she eventually realizes her son is gone, she panics and immediately starts searching for him.

The kid soon discovers that his mom is not present, but he recalls that she was leaving for classes 1-3. Using the support of two strangers that were friendly enough to assist him, he manages to locate the class.

Surprisingly, Mitsumi and her companions study in the classroom that the kid eventually finds himself in. The young boy is spotted by Mitsumi, who recognizes him as Shima-kun’s younger sibling owing to the key chain over his shoulder bag. She is proven to be right when the young boy identifies himself as Keiri Shima.

When Mitsumi runs towards the HQ to find out where the kid’s mom is, other students begin questioning him regarding what happened. While his mom is at the school, Shima enjoys the Drama Club’s School Festival Performance in another room. With his outstanding performance, Kanechika surprises everybody, and Shima also seems stunned by his acting.

Shima is located by Takumi, who informs him of the fact that his brother wandered off during the school event and wound up in their classroom. Shima runs to find his brother because he is unaware that his family members have arrived.

He strangely gets the impression that Keiri has virtually no interest in him whatsoever. While listening to him, Takumi counters that children that age are not particularly concerned with the issues Shima is irrationally overthinking about.

When Shima eventually makes it back to the classroom, he sees Keiri chuckling as his friends attempt to amuse him. Keiri abruptly begins to sob and hugs his older brother once he spots him. In the end, Shousuke realizes that he was surely worried about him and feels as though he might have misinterpreted the dynamics of their relationship. In the meantime, Mitsumi locates Shima’s mom and lets her know that her kid is safe.
