Synopsis (According to MAL):
When Hiyori—a young girl whose deceased father taught her the joys of fishing—headed out to sea for some alone time, she never thought that she would encounter another girl there.
After a while, this girl—named Koharu—and her end up fishing and cooking together, and they get to know each other a bit in the meantime.
During their brief time together Koharu finds out that the reason Hiyori went out to sea that day was that she’s hesitant towards meeting her new stepfamily that same evening. But what a coincidence! Koharu is also meeting her new family tonight! “No. It can’t be a coincidence…” Follow these two ‘sisters’ and their new life together!
Slow Loop is based on Maiko Uchino’s manga, which began in 2018 and has four Tankobon volumes as of January 2021. The manga is serialized in Manga Time Kirara Forward, where it began as a one-shot.
