Summary / Annotation
A dark and humorous visual diary submitted by torikaebaya on February 4, 2017, 12:41pm A dark and humorous visual diary, Skim introduces us to the story of Kim, a girl attending Catholic girl's school in the early 90s. Best described as "moody", Kim is more than a little anti-social. She's Wiccan and falling for her English teacher... or, she would be but that teacher skips town and out of her life as soon as she realizes she might be developing feelings for her student. Through the course of the story, Kim slowly loses her best friend to popularity and a boyfriend, while Kim just watches life pass her by. Kim probably communicates best to her diary and the story sometimes shifts to flashbacks. Skim is a realistic, slice of life story of a girl trying to find herself in a world she finds little joy in.
