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.

SKET Dance won the 55th Shogakukan Manga Award for best shounen manga in 2009.

Sket Dance is a very fun manga, but it can be tiring too. Let's do it by steps:

The episodic pace of the series makes it more complicated to analyze due to following a style of a case centered on an eccentric person at school, whether it be a teacher, student or even outsiders.

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 ...

tl;dr: A manga with solid comedy with an interesting and unique cast of characters, but a story that was pretty weak especially in its conclusion. 

With this manga, I think it's really important to go in with the mentality that it is ultimately simply a gag manga. The three main characters are all given pretty solid and serious backstories that explain their interesting circumstances and how they grew to become who they are during the manga. The three of them have their own bonds. There are a number of side characters as well that have stories, though ones that are considerably less developed than the main ...
