The fact that Sket Dance is an episodic series means that for it to end, it must have had consecutively poor rankings. I thought Sket Dance was pretty high in the rankings, although I haven't seen the rankings lately, nor have I read the latest chapters (since they're not translated yet). Can somebody update me on this?

Uh, nono. Recently it wasn't going that well in rankings, but not that bad either. There are always other "buffer series" in the bottom 5. It's just that they were already third years, so it was bound to end after/around graduation. Sket Dance was stuck on the fall of their second year for a while (and was potentially endless), but then Shinohara decided to let the time flow again with the School Trip Arc (he says it on the free talk in volume 15), so it was obvious it would have ended after graduation.

I don't believe Sket Dance was cancelled though...

The latest Volume was somewhere in the top 30 best sellers just a week or two ago.


I'm pretty sure it wasn't cancelled, since there are still many series below it that would've got cancelled before Sket would. I think Shinohara felt like it was time to end the series since they were graduating their third year of high school.

And volume sales don't really help determine which series get axed, it's the ranking that determines it.

It's sad to let go, but if this is it's natural ending then all the better. This manga sure brings back good memories!

WOW!

2013 Summer has been a KILLER for manga.

June 2013 (Gantz Ends....it started in 2000, that's longer than BLEACH!)

July 2013 (Deadman Wonderland ends)

July 2013 (Sket Dance ends)

August 2013 (Soul Eater Ends....it started in 2004!)

+ Kaichou wa Maid-sama, Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun, not sure if they end in summer though.

And for anime, it's a KILLER too, in the other way

Realized that it was ending a couple of weeks ago, when I saw the title of the latest chapter being "Last Dance", but it is so sad to see one of my favorite series end. Been a fan of it ever since I started the anime, and I really enjoy every chapter. :(

In the end I guess it's better for it to end by the author's will rather than to prolong it or eventually getting the axe...

Might as well add that the long running Kodomo no Jikan also ended just last month.
So MAL finally starts locking news threads that are only a few weeks old?

I wonder where was the announcement of this change? Or we are seeing yet another case of changes made that impacted users but not communicated to them?

I wonder how long people would put up with this.

As much as I have a bunch of information to share about anime announced recently I cannot share it in news board, and the anime series is too disorganized and chaotic to share information except with people already interested in the particular series.

Dammit I really don't want Sket Dance to end! Absolutely love the series, anime and manga. <3 There is still a lot of chapters that haven't been translated yet so I guess I can still look forward to those until they get up to the final chapter. Hopefully the anime will get another season. They really NEED to animate the Switch On arc and the Trouble Travel arc at the very least. :) I also hope the series ends with a set pairing. Himeko x Bossun PLEASE! :D

It's not getting cancelled, it's a natural ending...
Sometimes WSJ lets some series end naturally, you know.
For the last chapter it'll even have color pages, so it's definitely not axed =.=

Currently watching it and I love it. I hope for a new anime season, at least. Will look forward to read the manga, once ended.

Was there even a main plot to this?
Just seemed episodic from what I've read/watched.

Not much of a fan of this series but I'm just really surprised of all the announcements about some good manga series which are ending all at once...
