SynopsisAt 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 written and amazingly powerful (multi-episode) storylines within it that I can’t say much about – for fear of spoilers. Just know that they don’t come off as abrupt, but rather fit smoothly into the ‘narrative’ and add a lot to it. Don’t let the comedy-oriented episodes fool you into thinking that that’s all the show has in store for you.
On another note - being perfectly blunt and honest - this series is a best classified as a ‘dramedy’. The overall tone you are first introduced to is that of a school-life comedy. The drama picks up slightly near the beginning, but truly picks up a little farther in. After that point, both exist within the show almost equally (with a few exceptions). The balance struck between the two is well-done, as neither overwhelms the other. They work together to create a fantastic atmosphere.
One thing should be noted though. When the show ends, there’s no solid culmination for the characters. It just kind of... ends. So be prepared for that.
The art is very high-quality. Frenetic motion (due to the fast-paced comedy within the series), facial expressions, backgrounds and lighting are all above par. Character designs have had a lot of thought put into them – almost everyone is unique. And the best part is that the quality stays consistent through all seventy seven episodes.
SKET Dance utilizes music in a very effective way. It plays songs that match the current scene. If it’s comedic, the music will be bombastic and crazy. If it’s serious and dramatic, the music will fit that. It helps enhance the presentation. But it also does one thing that is greatly appreciated: it shuts up when it needs to and lets what’s happening play out with no influence from the music at all.
On the voice-acting side of things, this anime also excels. The seiyū gave their all in every episode. Everyone was well-voiced and sounded natural.
The main three characters are pretty unique and unconventional, having a lot of depth and personality. Switch, the genius otaku, who talks through his computer… Himeko, the occasionally violent Okinawan “Yankee” with a soft-spot for cute things… And finally the leader of the SKET club, Bossun. He's a rather interesting choice for a main character, as at times he’s almost completely inept and useless - but at other times he really shines. It’s actually quite refreshing.
Interestingly, these aren’t the main character’s real names, but rather their nicknames. They go almost entirely by those nicknames - each of which has a story behind it.
There are also almost too many side characters to mention (which can be a good thing or bad thing depending on your tastes). Most of them are great, having something of worthwhile value to contribute. A few serve almost no purpose – but they don’t overstay their welcome.
The characters are the true heart and soul of this anime.
This was, honestly, one of the funniest anime series I’ve had the pleasure of watching. It was also very emotionally powerful at times.
It’s not perfect. There are plenty of flaws. But they never detracted from the true experience of the anime. That experience being the character interactions, and also the lessons the show teaches.
This is a fantastic series in the areas of character development and comedy. Most everyone can find something of value in this anime. If the comedy doesn’t do it for you, the serious bits of the show probably will, or vice-versa.
SKET Dance became my instant favorite the moment I got into it, and it has valid reasons for so. It's one of the very few anime's which execute both the Slice of Life and Comedic elements perfectly well. 77 episodes is not a very huge number considering the vast amount of entertainment it provides.
So the story revolves around the fictional Kaimei High School, with our three members of the 'SKET Club' who aid the people in need of help, whatever their issue maybe. You may think at first the number of episodes for this show is too much, considering that it revolves around the very same concept of the SKET Club supporting the people and getting rid of their troubles, but there's more to it. SKET Dance has an extremely funny and a humorous nature that goes hand in hand with its plotline. With each episode there's a great amount of witty and comical jokes cracked and at times sticks to making parodies of other anime as well although that in comparison is very less than the original humor the show provides. Adding to the uniqueness of SKET Dance.
Making a show with a school setting but at the same time the genre comedy being its core is not a very easy task to accomplish as it tends to have a lot of clichéd objects but this is where SKET Dance truly shines. While being humorous most of the time, SKET Dance also achieves what its actually about, helping others in need. Whatever their request maybe, with each and every episode our SKET Club manage to complete the task given and end that certain episode on a high note, while also being true and original every time. However if you are thinking that with each episode, no matter how humorous it may be or how good a finish it provides, it's inevitable that with the mixture of comedic situations and solving the problems of those in trouble and sticking with the same concept, it's bound to get boring at some point. But this is where the character development comes in to play. SKET Dance gives a great amount of devotion and concentration to its characters. Each of our three protagonists of the SKET Club, Bossun aka Fujisaki, Himeko aka Onizuka Hime (Also known as the legendary 'Onihime' in her past) and Switch aka Usui Kazuyoshi.
Talking about characters, these are our trio of the SKET Club who support the ones in need. Bossun is the leader of the club, the one created the club and helped both Himeko and Switch join the club. For starters, Bossun is depicted as quite an unconventional character. He's not your typical cool-guy who overwhelms everyone else on talent on other things, but in fact the exact opposite of it. I don't mean to say that he's no help to the people and the club itself, it's just that he's never taken seriously. Compared to Himeko's brute strength and Switch's power of information, Bossun doesn't have anything you'd call a special talent. Or there's probably one, "The concentration mode" as he calls it. With the glasses he doesn't always wear and keeps it at the top of his red hat, when he does use it though it helps to go over the tiniest details and always help him solve them a case. Bossun is always overlooked at, and I don't mean in a bad way but in a funny way. As I said before he's not your typical cool character or some lazy ass guy who them goes on become a hero later in the show. However this does not in any way degrade Bossun's character and I'd say he's one of the most likeable protagonist around.
Next is Himeko. Once known as the legendary delinquent Onihime, Himeko's past is quite irritating. Always feared by local thugs and students alike, Himeko is unable to make a friend for herself but that's when she encounters Bossun and things began to change for Himeko. Personally I love Himeko's accent, where she speaks in a different dialect than the usual. Himeko is a very crucial member to the club and they always rely on her strength which is her power in the time of need. Switch is our next character and he's a bit weird. He's a guy who likes crappy video games and always hangs around with his Laptop and so much so that he speaks with people using it too. Switch also is a hardcore otaku and has all the information stored about the students and teachers alike from Kaimei in his laptop which is always an helpful accessory to the club. I'd love to talk about Himeko and Switch in detail but I'm afraid I couldn't by giving away some spoilers. A couple of episodes are dedicated to both Himeko and Switch later in the show which tells the backstory of the two and it's very sad which will leave you teary-eyed.
One of SKET Dance's trademarks is definitely its epic voice acting. Most of the jokes and humor is greatly accompanied by the way our characters react to the scenario, and in that aspect SKET Dance does it better than almost any other. There's a variety of opening and ending themes for SKET Dance both meant to be fun and dramatic varying from episodes to episodes. Many of the special episodes thrown between the show which focuses solely own its character has its own theme as well. The artwork is well synchronized with all the other elements as well giving birth to a highly entertaining and at times sad piece of work.
SKET Dance does not follow a single pattern and thus is mostly episodic. In other words there are no separate arcs and it simply continues to follow it storyline. From the start till the end SKET Dance does not dissapoint you in any way. With light-hearted humor, sad moments accompanied by shocking plot twists, all play a very pivotal role in this anime. The inclusion of the Student Council Academy and its characters is important too, as they serve as a rival to the SKET Club but in a rather friendly manner. For the ones who are having a thoughts or two considering the length of this anime, I'd advice you to overlook it immediately as the fun it provides makes you forget about how long it is. In fact once I finished it I was left with hopes of watching more episodes. Make no mistake, SKET Dance ends perfectly well and does not leave the viewer any questions unanswered, but just as I finished SKET Dance I was beginning to miss the antics our SKET Club provided us. At the start of this show, I had planned on finishing this quick with atleast finishing three episodes a day. Considering how good this is and the laugh it provides you, I can tell you there are certainly some dull moments in this show when I stopped watching it for a while. Yes, the fact that is 77 episodes long does come to light at some point, but that's all the more reason to take this slow and steady as the enjoyment in the coming episodes is endless as is the same for the entire series.
SKET Dance is an anime that will definitely go down as one of the best within its genre and is highly recommended by me to anyone who likes anime with some fun and humor. read more
Sket Dance is an interesting and hilarious anime that will make you laugh at almost every episode. It's about 3 people who came together and made a club to help others who are in need. They then try their best to complete every task they are handed;even when someone or something blocks their way, they still find a way to through.
In every episode, there will be various ways to make you laugh out loud, like jokes,puns,random funny comments, etc.The jokes are easy to understand and the whole series almost flows smoothly.I never laughed so much by watching an anime before~
There is also some drama developement in the series that you don't expect from AN anime of this genre.
The story is thought out well and does have episodes that has some seriousness in there.It showed some of the main characters pasts and how they all meet and became Sket Dance.
Characters - 9
A wanna-be samurai? A sensitive but TALENTED boy? A boy that only talks with a computer?YES this anime has many characters that have their own unique personality which i like and they work off of each other, which makes the anime more amazing! There are flaws, but not too much that makes you dislike them. For example: Over-reacting on simple mistakes *cough* tsubaki* but it makes him cute (X
Bossun made me laugh the most. He may child-like characteristics but he becomes serious when in focus mode. He makes the most hilarious face expressions and is really talented in art and craft.And his great enemy is Tsubaki , one of the student council members and.....read more about it in the manga
Himeko comes next.You see her swinging her hockey stick around,and hitting people down, but don't think her as a delinquent yet. She shows her mother-like skills as you watch the anime and she makes the perfect comedy duo with bossun.
Switch is my third favorite, with his random comment and computer sounds. Even thought he doesn't talk with his voice, he uses a computerized sound systems to talk. I am mostly amazed of how he could type so quickly , its like he's speaking himself.And he's pretty handsome too XD
Art - 8
All i can say about it is that is shows the expressions perfectly and detailed;sharp and clear. To me the art is like gintama,Beelzebub,and,MM!.Not too much detail with the casual parts but when its time for seriousness of a extreme joke, it becomes more complex or like the art you see in Ben 10 ,dragon ball,or one piece.
Enjoyment - 10
As i said, its a funny, enjoyable anime. It made me LAUGH OUT LOUD and made me want to re watch some episodes.
Overall - 9
Something worth watching.With it's comedy and drama that will leave you satisfied after each episode.also recommend to read the manga too to read about the protagonists pasts in more detail.
I can't find anything i dislike about this! read more
Anime that makes you roll around laughing out loud does not come by all that often. However in the span of 77 episodes, the ones that caused genuine laughter were maximum 10. The rest of the episodes were either simply pleasant to watch or slightly amusing. Many were downright boring. But these are not the only problems of Sket Dance...
Somehow, Sket Dance fails to get you emotionally involved with the characters. It is not that they are not likeable, they are. Yet they miss that certain quality that makes you really care what happens with them, that quality that makes it a joy to watch them go about their lives and interacting simply because they are great characters. Which I guess is the point: They are not in fact great characters, otherwise we'd care, otherwise just watching them talk would be fun. But it is not.
Most bizarrely, this series took a very sudden and totally unexpected turn to fanservice around the last 15 episodes or so, right after going through some of its funniest episodes. After 65 or so episodes with an absolute absence of fanservice the sudden gratuitous nudity and constant breast bounces were jarring and cheap. 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.
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.
SKET Dance and Gintama' also have crossover episodes.
both have same comedy and have a group of ppl helping those in need !!! also Shinohara-sensei was Sorachi-Sensei's Assistant for a while so u can expect the same style from him.also both of them are from Shounen Weekly Jump...
Trio of odd jobs, characters that are very unique and gags that surely make you laugh! Plus, numerous parodies of other anime!
Both are hilarious in their own way and the proof is the genius script (and lines) which are not a total waste. If you love one of them, try watching the other~
In the SKET Dance there is an organization which is similar to Yorozuya in Gintama Series and it has the same crazy atmosphere and few seiyu, who's working in Gintama.
Sarcastic, Parodies that breaks the 4th wall, High detailed animation.
Some costumers are usually a plot device to the story.
Themes (School & Feudal Japan), settings.
More drama no or less action.
very funny, the main characters are also doing odd jobs
Kazuyoshi's VA is the same with Gintama's main character (Gintoki)
if you want something random, I recommend you watch this anime.
The three main characters are very similar, and they do almost the same job, help people with whatever they request. Also both series are focused on comedy, but Gintama is way better than Sket Dance.
Both shows are about a 3-man group who'd do anything asked to them.
Plus Kenta Shinohara, mangaka of Sket Dance, is the assistant of Hideaki Sorachi, the author of Gintama.
If you love odd jobbers, you will definitely love SKET Dance! Basically, SKET Dance is Gintama in school format and not perverted as Gintama. I recommend this to all Gintama fans and school-related anime fans out there!
Although sket has a different setting than gintama both are gag animes with tons of fun and 4th wall breaking scenes!
A lot of people say sket dance is the school version of gintama, and that's kinda true.
Both have 3 main characters, 2 guys and 1 girl. In both of them a guy started their odd jobber group and the others joined later.
The envirement is a bit different, because in sket dance they are in a school and help studens with odd jobs and things like that. In gintama they are in a city were there are different orginizations and people they help ( Shinsengumi, Joi and aliens).
SKET Dance creator (Shirohara) is a former assistant of Gintama's creator (Sorachi-sensei). It's therefore not surprising to see Sorachi-sensei's influence in SKET Dance, also the comedy styles are similar.
Mang, if you didnt watch this yet, gtf out of here and go watch
It's just the second best anime you gonna watch in your life, One Piece is the first ofc.
Well, its pretty much a insane Sket Dance in the good old days
You can not watch a single episode and dont laugh or cry, or both (me every episode).
- Do favors just for help people;
- Funny and charismatics characters;
- Nice set of openings, endings and OSTs 9/10
- Always get in trouble and fix it in a funny way;
- A funny story gets serious and a minute and ends up in a comedy anyway;
- Very nice and complex plot behind all that comedy;
- May the feels be with you bro.
- Do favors for money but ends doing it just for help their friends;
- Insanely funny and very charismatics and uniques characters;
- Nice set here too, each opening is better than the other, 9/10;
- Always in trouble, same from Sket;
- Shit get pretty serious before you know it, sometimes ends serious but always in a comedy way;
- One of the best shady-plots-behind-the-story I have ever seen;
- Damn... The story behind Gin-san and his friends in the past, war and stuff... Shouyo-sensei... I cant handle such feels...
- Kagura best girl.
Watch it bro, do a favor for humanity.
They are pretty much the same show in different settings.
SKET- 3 club members (2 guys and 1 girl) that do anything to help the student body
Gintama- 3 yorozuya (2 guys and 1 girl) who do any job for money
Both are HILARIOUS and will have you laughing every episode. They both parody other animes and sometimes have a sentimental side.
They have the same feel. Maybe because the mangaka of Sket Dance was once an assistant by Gintama's mangaka. Both are very funny. Some characters in Gintama are voiced by the same seiyuus in Sket Dance (For example: Gintoki - Switch, Jugem - Himeko, Takaya Hachibei - Bossun). Sket Dance is like the school version of Yorozuya.
Is similar because both are three mean characters.
Both do parodies.
both have a completly history.
Both have a trio that takes odd jobs, with plenty of laughter and memorable stories along the way.
The creator of SKET Dance used to work under Hideaki Sorachi who created Gintama. That was what prompted me to take a look at SD.
This is similar to Gintama because of the "helping" part. Its like a school version of Gintama. And it also has the Manzai type of jokes. It is also really enjoyable.
well both of Sket Dance and Gintama have a trio that helps people which are usually odd jobs.
and they rely on parodies of other franchises such as Shounen series for their humor.
and finally they're both hillarious and fun to watch.
Both anime are comical and there is a group that works to help the others, but in different situations. The style of Joes is similar. Beyond being comedic, both also have a lot of action and sad stories. They both make you "laugh and cry at the same time."
These two anime are similar anime because they are obviously both made by Shonen Jump, but also they are both comedies. They both have the same concept of having a group of 3 people helping other except their storylines and timelines are completely different.
SKET Dance's author is something like the student of Gintama's author, so you know what kind of things to expect. SKET Dance follows a similar concept, but in a High-school and with three incredibly funny characters. Sometimes you laugh, sometimes you cry! Every character is different from one another, and most of the situations they're messed in are completely unpredictable.
Its like Gintama but in a School Setting. Really funny and has some deep moments too.
In Sket Dance, each character is so unique they wont seem like just background characters.
Similar characteristics and humour used.
When you have seen both similarities are there but no joy is lost. Gintama has three main characters same as SKET Dance. If you enjoyed SKET then Gintama is the right kind of humour!
Both are funny anime with a few serious arcs about main characters who help others and have a simliar message.
SKET Dance is basically a modern day Gintama.
Gintama and SKET Dance are both focused on 3 characters that help people in their world. Both shows also have lots of comedy.
both don't really have a plot, but its filled with tons of humor, while there is a tough main heroine while the other two have their own characteristics. also, the two animes have had a few crossovers.
Both of these have anime have similar comedic elements.
They both star 3 main characters and a service help-like club.
*Gintoki's voice actor is in both anime*
*Shinpachi's voice actor is in both anime but plays a minor role in Sket Dance*
They have crossover episodes.
Sket Dance is pretty much what i think would happen if Gintama was set in High School.
Both of them describe a story with people who do anything you ask. Both cover stupid jokes and epizodes which are almost about nothing but still you can't stop laughing. Main heroes compete with someone but at the end of the day they're better friends than ever before.
Both these anime series are extremely high level comedy that will make you laugh out loud. There are many times when both of these turn serious and they even have a cross-over
Episodic series about 3 friends helping other people usually in roundabout way. As once it was stated in the Sket dance, it's poor man's Gintama.
They both are fun, alike. Some say, SKET Dance is school version Gintama. They both are willing to help people. SKET Dance mangaka also used to be Gintama Mangaka assistant. There is a lot concept taken from each other. They both also come from Jump. The Anime Airing time is Also almost same.
Both stories teach you value of friendship and helping.
Both feature a group of three who work together to solve people's problems or task. Both anime have similar humor, and not to forget that in both anime there is a 'rival' group,Shinsengumi in Gintama, while it is the student council in Sket Dance. If you enjoy Gintama, you should also enjoy this anime.
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 tells about a group of high-school students helping people around them.
Both somewhat has certain connections to Student Council.
Both are comedic animes.
Both often deals with their school's extracurricular clubs problems.
Both are school-focused.
Medaka Box to me is like a poor man's SKET Dance,
and both are popular Shounen Jump manga turned into anime.
Same pointless *helping out* other students and club members, though I prefer medaka box for the action.
Both anime involves a club or organization helping out students who asks them for help. They're very comedic.
Medaka Box and Sket Dance go hand in hand. These two series involves around a group of kids helping the helpless in a school life setting. There is a lot of comedy present that deals with the various events around the school especially involving the main characters.
Both series follows through an episodic theme with arcs added in throughout some episodes.
Both series also has "antagonists" that opposes the ideologies of the main characters later on.
They both are groups of students that solve problems for the school.
SKET Dnce is more of gag-comedy that has funny situations per episode while Medaka box has more of an advancing storyline
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
Organization in high school devoted to solving other people's problems regardless of how small it is. The main male protagonists are both exceptional with the slingshot and the main female protagonists are both exceptional fighters.
Both anime focus more on a club that does odd jobs, and their episodes contain the odd jobs.
The both anime's the characters fight to protect the school. In both animes the main characters take offers from people to help them. These animes also have similar generes such as: comedy, school life.
Both animes are about two school clubs who help people. Also the main girls are alike there both really strong and are well known street fighters. Also the main guys both use sling shots as there weapons.
Both are compose of clubs dedicated to help someone in need.
Both were set in a school.
Both have muchachos who uses slingshot as their main weapons and both are also a crack shot.
Both have a chiquita (lead female) who are fighters.
Both leaders of the club were street-smart.
Thought in both animes have clubs that help someone in need, in OSN, the club there is more of a businesslike thing, that is whenever someone approaches them for help, they have to pay it with favors, while in SD, them helping somebody in need is done in order to solicit members.
In OSN the club is compose of 7 members, while in SD, here were only 3.
In OSN the leader of the club is merely a support and rarely participate in any of the clubs operations, while in SD, the club leader is the main cast and does participate in all of the clubs operations.
In OSN the club geek is a witch while in SD the club geek is a computer wizard who would let his fingers (he types in his laptop that he always bring) do the talking.
The main chiquita (female lead) in OSN can fight barehanded, but is incapable of taking down toughest opponent (the one who sexually harassed her), while in SD, the chiquita (female lead) relies entirely on her hockey club when taking down the toughest opponent.
When it comes to romance, in OSN the muchacho (male lead) has feelings for the chiquita (female lead), while in SD, the feelings with the 2 muchachos (the 2 male leads) with the chiquita (the sole female lead) is purely professional.
When it comes to the clubs relationship with the student council, in OSN the club is at equal status with the student council, while in SD the club is at odds with the student council.
In OSN the genre of the anime is more like a parody, while in SD, there is an extra genre of mystery.
Both series are quite hilarious for starters. That's because they have parodies that has a strong and independent female protagonist that are present in both series.
Both Ookami-san and Sket Dance also has the theme of a club at school wishing to helping others in need.
Both series are very funny and contains a lot of parodies as well as references. Yet in some cases, there is also emotions and other factors that seems to bring out a more dramatic side in both series.
Both series also expands on the idea of friendship and how friends are one of the most important things to have in the world.
Very comedic slice of life with amusing characters. Not to mention the characters tend to drive each other nuts.
theyre both comedy and highschool life though i would prefer DanKouNi is more funny.
Well, the comedy presented in both series are quite pleasant to watch for starters. Both focuses a lot on high school and the daily lives of the main characters.
Both series also has gags and a lot of drama that are contained in stand alone episodes.
Both series are entertaining to watch for those more into comedy rather than a serious plot.
Similar style of humour and both include school settings.
Both are extremely funny high school slice of life anime without an overarching plot.
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.
The one who made Sket Dance was the former assistant of Sorachi Hideaki (Gintama's Mangaka), it's a comedy series just like Gintama, and they both have the same style.
Now, both anime are shonen anime. Also, both are obviously comedy and how they deliver it is almost similar. Also, how both deliver drama is strikingly similar. Both anime are almost so similar that one may say that "Sket Dance is Gintama lite", but let's not jump to there...
Both anime have an odd job trio going around solving problems.
In both series, they take place at a local high school setting. But more importantly, there is a club where friends gather and conduct daily activities.
The main male protagonist in both series are not similar but they do have a way to present their thoughts to others in a not so typical fashion. On the other hand, the main female MC in both series are independent and has a cool aura around them.
Both series also has a lot of comedy, drama, catchy dialogues, and hints of a little romance between two of the main characters.
