At Kaimei High School, the Living Assistance Club (aka the Sket Brigade) was organized to help students with problems big or small. Most of the time, though, they hang out in their club room, bored, with only a few trivial problems floating in every once in a while. In spite of this, they still throw all their energy into solving these worries.

"Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning to dance in the rain."

There are some stories that end up having a lot more to them than was initially expected. They aren’t perfect, they might not even be completely logical – but they’re something that managed to catch you off guard in the best ways possible. Take a look; there’s a chance that SKET Dance might blossom into such a series for you…

The core plot is just a simple, mainly episodic story about a quirky trio of friends that solve problems and help people out. But there are also some very tightly read more

SKET Dance.

Just the title itself say's alot about the anime.

SKET stands for Support, Kindness, Encouragement, Troubleshoot. The second (助団), which instead uses kanji, derives from the verb tasukeru (助ける), meaning to help or save.

So just from the title you can in some sorts understand that this series is about, well.. Helping.

Judged by many as Gintama set in a school life setting, the series have had a tendency of being flooded by "hate war" comments. I agree with the Gintama fans that the series is very similar. But at the same time it really shines on it's own at times.

But if you read more

SKET Dance.. What is it actually??
As you can see from synopsis, SKET Dance is actually a Living Assistance Club. They help many people from their own problem. But, is it worth to watch this anime? Is this fun to watch? Let's see...

- Story: 8 / 10

The story mostly happened in their school, doing some random things together in their school, and help many people. The story is light and not confusing every part. It's actualy pretty funny and entertaining every read more

This anime was very enjoyable to watch as to ,that it was a really funny comedy. The stupidity and parody were really amusing and at times I couldn't stop laughing because of the funny scenes.
However the first episode putted me off the anime at first because it didn't have impact and it confused me about who was the main character but as the anime progress you feel more intact with the anime and learn about the pasts of bossun and onihime and switch . Which were very emotional because of them having such sad pasts. because of the drama and comedy it totally made read more

Both shows bring out the best humor anime has to give. Both shows are very funny but also tell a story. All things done have a deeper meaning behind them and lots of emotion.
Both involve a group of students including a tough female who solves other students' problems and fights delinquents. However in SKET Dance the group is a club and Medaka Box is about the Student Council.
both anime have groups of people whom help others and as they do that they have more allies as they go on. many similarity occurs in both these anime, but SKET Dance have less romance

Very comedic slice of life with amusing characters. Not to mention the characters tend to drive each other nuts.
Odd jobs trio takes care of your problem, sometimes through laughing and fun and other times by tugging at your heartstrings. SKET Dance creator (Shirohara) is a former assistant of Gintama's creator (Sorachi). It's therefore not surprising to see Sorachi-sensei's influence in SKET Dance. Comedy styles are similar, although Gintama takes everything up to eleven.

SKET Dance and Gintama' also have crossover episodes.
-Clubs that like to play games all day
-Average school with a lot of "unique" people
-Lots of tsukkomi and boke jokes
-Tons of random side-characters who just kinda appear without much reason
-Everyone likes weird stuff, and I mean very weird
