Skip and Loafer Episode 9: Release Date, Speculations, Watch Online

An outing to the zoo almost goes sideways but is quickly brought back on track and ends with a happy memory in episode 8 of Skip and Loafer titled “Heat and Complications.”

With a day out at the zoo planned amidst the summer heat, a fun start with pandas and multiple animal exhibits eventually exhausts Mitsumi and drains her of any energy. Shima quickly reads this and makes her feel ok about bringing the trip to an early end.

Some time at the souvenir shop quickly brings them both in good spirits, and they end it on a happy note. However, Shima has been facing problems of his own in silence. Meeting up with Ririka again, we got more glimpses of his past.

Here are the latest updates.

1. Episode 9 Speculation: 

An extremely contrasting home life of Shima and Mitsumi is obvious, with one being depressive and the other full of energy. The mysterious past of Shima is slowly beginning to piece together, and Ririka is an essential part of it.

We may get more insight into the night of the controversy and the event that happened during the one night at the party with Ririka and Shima, which may also be the root cause of Shima’s extreme disinterest in acting and his secrecy regarding Ririka.

3. Recap of Episode 8:

Mitsumi asks for advice on her outfit for the trip to the zoo the next day, and she starts having suspicions about Shima since he’s a popular city boy. Shima later apologized for Ririka’s appearance in the class, and Mitsumi quickly understood him, but Mika continued to overthink it.

The next day, they finally meet up at the zoo and start sightseeing. However, unknown to them, two pairs of eyes follow them around while they check out all the pandas and animal exhibits. Mika, as well as Mitsumi’s uncle, both continue to stalk them relentlessly.

He tries to question Mika and find out Shima’s personality, eventually deduces that Mika has a crush on Shima. The trip has been draining for Mitsumi, who feels extremely bad about spacing out even though she was the one who invited him. Shima quickly reads this on her face and says they can head back after this, and she hesitantly agrees.

Nao Chan finally reveals herself to Mika, and they even go for some ice cream after the zoo trip. Mitsumi and Shima do some souvenir shopping to remember this day and part ways after a good time at the zoo. Back home, the girl’s group comes to Mitsumi’s house to study.

Grouped around the table, they manage to be productive for a while before taking a break and doing some generic girl talk about clothes and fashion terms. Snacking and talking about friendships and social circles, Mika begins getting a bit jealous after hearing about Yuzuki’s popularity.

Mika leaves for dinner with family and is on an awkward elevator ride with Nao, who can read her like a book. She deduces that she was merely lying about the family event to not overly commit to her friends, overthinking every detail and jumping to conclusions; she needs help opening up to the group.

After class, Shima gets a cryptic text to meet up at Shibuya and runs out to meet Ririka. She has been acting weird around him later, and he tries to confront her about it, but she continues to avoid it. Eventually pushing her to an outburst, she accuses him of having an ordinary high school life even after all he had done in the past.

Talking about a controversy from which she had made her comeback as a model, yet continues to be scrutinized for every detail. Shima apologizes and has to follow her every word since it is partly his fault. He continues to stay up at night after returning home, unable to sleep peacefully.
