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.

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.

Sket Dance, meaning "helpers club" ("助人団"; "Suketto Dan") follows the highschool lives of a trio of friends with what could be described as depressing backgrounds that form the club "Sket Dance" which aims to help any academy member in need. They grow strong bonds with a good bunch of the town that they live in as they go through their daily lives. Sket Dance is a comedy that follows the "recipe" of fellow comedy Gin Tama along with quite a few voice actors, they even did a crossover episode!

Plot 8/10:
Nice little story going on here, the anime itself doesn't actually start and finish with 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 have clubs that helps people.
