Kaimei High School is full of eccentric individuals, students, and teachers alike. Amongst the school's many clubs is the SKET Brigade, officially known as the Living Assistance Club. Comprised of the somewhat idiotic Yuusuke "Bossun" Fujisaki, the gallant Hime "Himeko" Onizuka, and the silent but surprisingly popular Kazuyoshi "Switch" Usui, the SKET Brigade is dedicated to solving various problems on campus. However, the club rarely receives requests, so the members spend most of their time messing around with random, trivial matters. Both hilarious and heartwarming, SKET Dance is a lighthearted comedy following the daily high school lives of an odd trio of friends.

This is my review for SKET Dance. I'll be referring to the characters by what they are most commonly called in the manga. Please note that this review is structured around how I personally felt about the manga: objectively, it deserves an overall rating of 9 (individual ratings being 8/8/10 for story, art, and character, respectively), but subjectively, I give it a 10.

Story: 9/10

As this is a mostly a comedy shounen series, it does not have much of a plot. We get chapter and chapter of hilarious moment by the SKET Dan. So why did I give the story a 9? That's because of the ...

This manga is one of the best anime I might have read. Strangely, there are still few people who have read this manga. Maybe due to the anime. I myself know this manga due to the anime which is also a very interesting anime for me. I watched it a few years ago and it's only this year that I can taste the manga.

Many say SKET Dance is the school version of Gintama. Not really wrong tho. Even so, this manga has its own interests. The characters are many and unique, the story is interesting, the comedy suits me well, and the illustrations that develop ...
