Slow Loop Plot
The plot of the anime series Slow Loop goes around the life of a young girl named Hiyori. The girl has recently lost her father and before he dies but left after teaching her fishing and ways to enjoy it. Now as time passed, whenever Hiyori feels low or sad she visits the river bank and does fishing while remembering her father. By nature, Hiyori is a very calm and quiet girl who generally feels shy to talk to strangers. One day as she was killing some loneliness near the riverbank, she met another young girl named Koharu. Surprisingly, Koharu was there for fishing too and now they bond together as they enjoy fishing and then eating together. However, the tables turn and they find out that they met each other was the very day they both were going to meet their new family. As they were too anxious about the meeting they arrive at the point and met each other.
This seems to be a coincidence at first but as they tell each other about how they both lost their parents it made the viewers doubt it. Other than Hiyori and Koharu, their parents also play a very important role in the series along with a classmate named Koi Yoshinaga. The series carries on with showing both of their journeys after this tragic event.
Previously on Slow Loop Episode 3
The artwork and animation of the series are very cute and colorful which can easily make anyone mistake the series as a shoujo anime. But keeping the plot in mind and what happened with both of the protagonists it is more of a seinen anime. episode 3 of Slow Loop was titled “Thank You”, it began with Hiyori and Koharu together seeing their photo album. When Koharu saw the small Hiroyi she immediately named her “Mini Hi” because of her being so small and cute. Later, as they turn the pages of albums, Hiyori narrates how Koharu lost her brother and mother in a car accident and how she would have cried a lot upon knowing this. As the episode progresses, Hiyori, Koharu, and Koi go out fishing together.
Koharu was utterly mesmerized by watching Hiyorii fishing as she said that she is having so much fun just by watching Hiyori. They spend the time fishing, eating their lunch while feeling the cool breeze, however, their fun didn’t last a long as it started raining soon. By the end of this episode, we witnessed Hiryori camping with Haro’s family along with Koharu and Koi. On a freezing night they all ended up stargazing and all of them cherished their moments together. The progressing episode was so calming and proved very therapeutic.
