Sket Dance (スケット・ダンス Suketto Dansu) is an anime series adapted from the Sket Dance Episodes are available to premium users world-wide every Thursday at 3 AM Pacific In the end, the sket dan helps him win the tournament . . The two's relationship reminds Switch of his own brother and the events of the past.
The series follows the club and all their comedic and serious mishaps. I had never even heard of Sket Dance until watching the Gintama crossover episode that was created for both of the series.
After watching the episode where Sket Dan appear in Edo I decided to look it up on Crunchyroll and thought it might make a good comedy show to fill the hole in my heart after I caught up with the Gintama series. While Sket Dance cannot top Gintama for me it has got to be one of the best comedy anime I have seen so far.
Comedy is a subjective thing as everyone has a different sense of humour. I laugh out loud a lot when watching this series which says it all really. I think by far one of the most well done elements of Sket Dance is the backstories of Bossun, Himeko and Switch. When she gets really angry, it's better to be miles away from her. She said to her friend Arisa that she wanted to protect her when she thought she was being bullied. Unfortunately, Arisa took that as Himeko calling her weak and things didn't end well.
She dyed her hair blonde when she was in middle school to help to spread the name of the delinquent "Onihime". In the present day, she probably keeps that look out of habit. Desperately Looking for a Purpose in Life: A good deal of her storyline is her worrying about her future. Abuse, Female on Male: Bossun ends up experiencing a world of pain whenever he gets on Himeko's nerves. So much, that EVEN he gets both hands broken. The Pelollipop Candy she loves has a variety of very odd flavors. According to her, she is probably the only one able to digest them all.
She becomes jealous when Bossun goes on a group date and doesn't like it when she sees him getting too friendly with Saaya. He Is Not My Boyfriend: People often comment on her close relationship with Bossun and wonder if they're couple, and she always corrects them. I Call It "Vera": Her field hockey canes' names are based on their brand and model names. They have been referred as: At first, Himeko gets her hair longer and dyes it as blond to spread the name of the "legendary delinquent Onihime".
Once she officially becomes part of the Sket Dan, she cuts it to start fresh as she wants to help people and also wants to move on from the "Onihime". Himeko usually lays the law with a field hockey stick. Interrupted Declaration of Love: She almost confesses her feelings to Bossun in a couple of opportunities After what she went through in chaptershe decides to confess to Bossun when she already accepted that she saw him more than just a friend.
She gets interrupted by Switch, who was previously knocked out. When she realizes that there is not much time left from High School, Switch convinces her that she should confess her feelings. And when it was the moment, Bossun tells her that he finally decided to go to the same University as her, making her to postpone the confession She wasn't originally a yanki, but after the things around Arisa went bad, she got a reputation. Her blonde bleached hair didn't help either, especially during middle school.
Himeko, being from Osaka, often slips her accent in her speech and writing. However, she uses "atashi" rather than "uchi". Her backstory reveals she became a loner after becoming a delinquent and tried very hard to keep it that way upon entering Kaimei Academy before she gave in to Bossun and Captain's friendship.
The more emotional member of the Sket Dan trio. Plays this role to Bossun's Kirk and Switch's Spock. She's the first member recruited in the Sket Dan, the vice president and is far more likely to get involved with Bossun's antics than Switch would be.
SKET Dance Chapter 288 Discussion
Himeko has her ribbon undone, avoids the blazer, and wears a choker and heels. She wears a pink cardigan during the colder weather.
While not that much obvious as Bossun, it looks like everyone in Kaimei Academy suspects that there is too much to their friendship than just Vitriolic Best Budsexcept her, of course. Heck, even Switch supports them! Himeko refers to Bossun as "the number one in Japan when it comes in finding a way of breaking out of a warehouse with long arms" during the first part of "Costume Break". Her former delinquent nickname was "Onihime" literally "Demon Princess". Often cries out Bossun's name whenever he experiences a world of hurt.
She shares her last name with another former delinquent who wanted to reform his life in wanting to help people. Adding some other points, Himeko also wants to pursue a teacher career. She amplifies her role as the tsukkomi Up to Eleven. And it's Serious Business. Her cooking ability is good, shown as being a participant in the first challenge of Gachinko Vivage Battle Arc: Much to her dismiss, Switch even teases her calling her as mom, at some moments when they end up acting as children and she has to keep them on track.
She recognizes that her artistic talents aren't as good as Bossun's, but they aren't much better than Roman's. Tomboy with a Girly Streak: She notoriously evolves her tomboy personality when she starts being involved with the Sket Dan at the time, foe example wearing more skirts and often leaving her field hockey cane aside. Himeko loves Pelollipop Candy, a lollipop candy brand similar to Chupa Chups that has a gallery of weird flavors such as: Sea Cucumber, Soft-Roe, and Liver.
Anyone else who eats them usually vomits. She even gets to become their spokesperson for a commercial. No, she doesn't like Bossun that way, he's only a good friend she's indebted to, don't pay attention to all the blushing or the way she freaks out when someone suggests there's something more between them. Turn the Other Cheek: She forgives Arisa for having betrayed her when they meet after years of certain events that triggered her 'Onihime' persona to surface.
She and Bossun are prone to arguing which often leads to Himeko giving him a good smackbut they are quite close and understand each other very well. Her ability to use a Field Hockey Cane as a weapon shows her rough side and former delinquent background. Switch appears to be the most serious of the group, but his fooling around says otherwise. Switch is tech-savvy to an extreme: Mysteriously, he prefers not to speak, instead communicating via a text-to-speech synthesizer in his laptop.
Perhaps there is a hidden side to this eccentric young man He is the Scully to Reiko Yuuki's Mulder. He believes that there are no supernatural beings, and thus, he holds his argument on the truth proven by science. Shown to have zero accuracy when he has a gun fight against Daisy in the Gachinko Vivage Battle and fails to hit most of his bullets on her. When the rest of the Sket Dan got sick, Switch had to be pulled out from his sidelines comfort zone, and is asked by the Principal to take care of his grandson while also having to do other clients' tasks with help of his gadgets.
A minor one, but Switch hates gaps in his data. Learning facts he didn't already know about people upsets him. Is considered to be good-looking with and without his glasseslampshaded when Himeko gets him to be Prince Charming instead of Bossun for the Snow White play and when he along with other attractive male students are coined the Kaimei 5 parodying the handsome F4 group from Hana Yori Dango. Despite being a consummate weird otaku, he is considered to be pretty handsome and popular. He had a crush on his childhood friend, Sawa, and she liked him back.
Unfortunately, he didn't know this until the day she moved away after his brother was killed. He usually has a remarkably impractical invention behind the sleeves, if necessary. Switch is not what he looks like. That nickname was his brother's, Masafumi. Due to his jealousy towards him, he unknowing it at the moment led Sawa's stalker to him and Sawa, and ultimately killed him.
The triggered guilt trip made Kazuyoshi to be a hikikomori and is the main reason he refuses to speak up until the present.
Not long after, he became the moderator of "Death Fights", just to bring justice to Masafumi, revealing purposely that he was responsible of all of it. Bossun saved him and helped him to make the first step out of the situation and out of his home. He communicates via text-to-speech with a laptop.
The reason he still refuses to speak is because of the guilt over his brother's death and the fact that he still doesn't move on from this event. He eventually does start speaking again. Switch's inventions are either useful or Awesome, but Impractical. There are some chapters that show the effectiveness of those if they are combined together, one in which Bossun creatively combined some of them to rescue a boy who is falling from a building, and another where it proves that Switch can be a Badass Bookworm if neither Himeko nor Bossun are with him all the time.
Tragically deconstructed, towards his little brother, Masafumi. He was jealous of his intellect and friendship with Sawa, and sadly, because of this huge misunderstanding of it being thought as something more than Like Brother and Sisterit led to his killing.
He was a shut in for months before joining the Sket Dan. At one point, the ever so stoic Switch calls Yagi "expressionless", and gets called out by his peers for it. He blames himself of Masafumi's death since it was his offhand comment that drove the killer to attack him. Switch isn't usually the source of peoples' problems, but it seems like half the time he only gets involved with helping people because their predicaments are a source of great entertainment.
Which to be fair, they are. He originally had longer hair and differently combed bangs, but he decided to change it. His current haircut is the only reminder and memory he has left of Masafumi's image on himself.
The default voice on his laptop often is toned to exaggerate when the moment calls it. He isn't the first person to go by Switch.
It originally was Masafumi's nickname, and he took it for himself after he died. Literally Loving Thy Neighbor: He had a crush on his next door neighbor Sawa, but she eventually moved away after his brother was killed. In his backstory it's explained that Switch didn't have any friends when he was a shut-in although it was a known fact that he would "run away" when someone got into contact with him about school.
However, it was Bossun who lent him a hand at first and never gave up to help him. After the "Death Fight" incident, he accepted Bossun's proposal to go to school again. After that, he slowly became friends with him and Himeko. He represents the "science" side to Reiko's "supernatural".
They always discuss from the very little detail, to just annoy each other. The ending of the series implies he might end up in a relationship with Momoka. As a punishment, he wanted to be the image of his brother at the start. He knows it is nonsense to become a Replacement Goldfish for him, but he still wants to hold on Masafumi's memory, if it's only for a little longer. Switch is very athletic when the situation calls for it especially when playing Genesisbut he prefers to stand in the sidelines.
This mostly annoys both Himeko and Bossun sometimes, because he is practically useless in certain situations just as when it is rainingand also just because he relies on them as the most assertive action guys.
Sket Dance / Characters - TV Tropes
Switch avoids the blazer and tie, and wears a green jumper or vest. He averted this when he first started going to Kaimei however, wearing the proper uniform before his brother's death. Kazuyoshi prefers to be called "Switch" instead of being called by his given name. He has his reasons about it, though, as it is the only way he can maintain alive the memory of his little brother, Masafumi. He can deny that he is not one of them, but it is really evident he is caught up with his regular TV, videogames, and anime and manga references.
Is supportive of Bossun and Himeko getting together.

And he admits he has been since the pretty beginning of the Sket Dan.
