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.

This review is by me as of chapter 97, so its actually up to date...

The manga is essentially comedy based; its shounen after all. However, the characters themselves are what truly make the manga.

In the series you'll find several characters each with their own trials and tribulations they are trying to overcome. And in between the AMAZING comedy (I laugh out loud IRL like every chapter) which includes many inside jokes from the series itself, and gets more funny as it goes on, there is a level of drama that is unexpected at all for a series like this.

Reviewing the Cases
by radiantfire

For this review, I will be analysing Sket Dance by Shinohara Kenta. I have read 18 chapters at the time of this writing.

Sket Dance revolves around 'Sket Dan' - a campus support group established to help students and staff with their problems. The chapters are generally episodic, in which they are simply referred to as a "Case." One-off cases are simply that. Some cases, however, span 2 to 3 chapters. These are often my favourite to read.

The art is decent. It's nothing special but it isn't bad either. I have no qualms about it. In fact, I'm quite impressed by the number read more

Note: More than a review, this is more like a short, personal reflection after reading the entire manga, so if you are looking for a very specific or detailed review, you won`t find it here.

Nonetheless, it would make me happy if you still decide to give it a try after reading this ^^

Having said that, on to the actual review:

It`s always sad when a story that you like a lot eventually comes to an end. I must say that chapter 286 made me tear up a bit, which is something that i rarely do whenever i`m reading/watching something, even if i like it an read more

( Sorry english isn't my first language (; 3 ;) )

With endless sequel of comedy, sket dance is one of the best gag manga I've ever seen. This manga is a great choice if you want to relax from your busy time or when you want to read together with your friends. This is the manga that can make you laught as hard as you can, bwahaha....

Story 8 :
Sket dance's story tells about an activity of highschool club that accept all the request of the other students. But, the request is not an average request. Every chapter have their read more
