Koma-chan's Problem

Saaya is hesitant on entering the Sket Dan's homeroom, and at the same time, Roman tells Fumi that her main character's behavior is inconsistent. She advises her to let the character become free. Before Saaya can enter the room, Koma walks by, and Saaya runs away. Moments later, Fumi introduces Koma to Hime and Bossun who are shocked at how giant Koma is. (Saaya decides not to drop by after Koma went inside the room.) In the Sket Dance homeroom, Koma whispers her request, and Bossun and Hime could not figure out what she said until Switch uses his new invention, Surprise Remote Control Light. Koma tells the Sket Dan that she is good at making impressions of Sengoku commanders via the flashlight. Koma breaks the teacup easily, and when Hime delivers another one, she breaks it again. Koma apologizes that she has uncontrollable strength which Switch realizes that is related to her request.

Over some tea, Bossun and the others learn that a boy Urehara has confessed to Koma, but Koma has no confidence in returning her feelings due to her strength. Bossun tries to reassure her that the guy will not freak out, and Switch and Hime thinks he insensitive. Bossun unknowingly makes a comment that makes Koma sends Bossun flying against the wall. In the next room, Roman and Fumi notices the noise. After the others figure out that Koma's strength is terrifying, Switch proposes to simulate scenarios, so Koma can get rid of her nervousness. Hime asks Bossun to do it, but when Bossun refuses and wants Switch to do it, Hime threatens the guy and shows a mother's overprotective side for Switch. Bossun starts it off with a confession and how he likes her body, bust, and butt are big. Koma slams Bossun through the window. Moments later, Bossun tells Koma to be truthful to the man, and Koma thank him for his advice and goes off to seek Urehara. Switch tells Bossun and Hime that Urehara's background is fishy.

Outside of school, Koma explains the truth to Urehara who tells her it does not matter. Urehara comments that many guys like her for her volume, and Koma is about to push the guy but stops. He compliments her for her funny impressions of Sengoku commanders. Suddenly, Koma is about hit him, and Bossun jumps in to protect the guy. As the sun sets, the two tell Koma that the guy is not right for her.

The ArchAngel's Ballad

Ayumi brings Dante to the Sket Dance so they can hear his request. She tells Hime that she is going to shop with Yagi. Before Hime can go with her, Bossun grabs her. Saaya is seen hiding in a box. When Dante states fall in love, the Sket Dan pat him congratulations. They ask him who is it. Dante tells them Michael, and the gang decipher his message. He says massive angel, so Switch thinks someone big. Words follow,

  • Sweet Scent
  • Elegant features
  • Voluptuous body

The Sket Dan realizes it is Koma when Koma appears and says that there is a boy with a visual-kei look who she likes. A scene shows Koma and Dante passing by and the two are smitten by each other. Just when Hime and Bossun is about to leave, Dante grabs Hime; Koma grabs Bossun and crushes a bit. The "omiai" begins, and Hime asks Dante to introduce himself. Dante talks about Adam and Eve. Bossun and Switch decipher his message which turns out to be what type of guy you like. Koma responds by whispering. Bossun struggles to hear, and the words turn out to be someone who is cool and has a kind spirit. Suddenly, Koma attacks Bossun. Meanwhile, Roman teaches Fumi on how to erase by placing a small paper with a new drawing. (tacky...) Koma launches Bossun to the wall making a "fossil" imprint. Later, Hime asks Dante who says fukuyokana kaori which means full bodied scent. (see points of interest). Hime mistakenly hears it as chubby face; Bossun gets attacked again. Dante tells them it is a mistake, and Hime makes the situation worse. She asks Koma (for her impressions) who says she does not like boys with dirty minds and that she wants someone to not pay attention to her body. Dante states graceful melody which Koma likes his compliment until she picks up a paper. It has a Kanji that reads either "Graceful melody" or "Massive figure." Switch translates it as "Graceful Giant." Koma is about to attack Dante, but Bossun protects him only to get launch through the wall. Roman greets Bossun without worries about the wall and she miraculously draws the wall. Koma and Dante exits the Sket Dan's room. He looks down and says mistaken angel which Switch translates to "It was just a passing fancy." At an hot springs, Ayumi narrates about Dante a bit.
