Skip and Loafer Episode 9 Ending Explained
Mitsumi eagerly awaits the forthcoming days after hearing about the festival from the Student Council. In the hallway with her classmates, Mitsumi spots Shima and wishes to start a conversation but is reluctant as she fears disturbing him. Mitsumi understands it’s only natural to wonder if someone still likes you if you haven’t spoken for some time.
Recognizing the desire to share the joy in times of happiness, Mitsumi heads back to her classroom with plans to give Shima some squid crackers from home. She brings them and gives them to him when they meet again later. Once they do, Mitsumi tells Shima about this festival that attracts more than rock concerts, with over 7,000 people attending annually!
Mitsumi expresses her eagerness to actively contribute as this marks the first time she has participated in something of such monumental importance. As they speak more, Mitsumi shares additional details regarding preparations for the festival. Shima listens attentively, but Mitsumi finds him unconcerned. When she brings this up with him, he seems unperturbed by this realization and continues their conversation without directly responding. Eventually, when Mitsumi leaves, he explains his behavior: a miscommunication had led him astray.
Shima has come to believe that Ririka had misinformed him about his right to enjoy high school, leading him to disregard Mitsumi’s enthusiasm and show little interest in her experiences. Yet Mitsumi remains attentive and understanding. She recognizes Shima’s uneasiness when her class performs at the festival, something others seem unaware of. Mitsumi realizes that few, if any, people truly recognize its magnitude.
