Hime Onizuka News

Hime Onizuka is a anime/manga character in the Sket Dance franchise
| |

Welcome to the Sket Dance weekly report! I'm Takashichea, and this is the final episode of the anime. 77 weeks had pass or so, and this anime was one of the best in my opinion.

Plot

While Bossun and the Sket Dan are helping the basketball team due to Jogasaki's little accident, Saaya works up the courage to confess to Bossun. Meanwhile, Sojiro thinks Saaya is still in love with Tsubaki.

Can Bossun and the gang help the basketball team and what will happened between Saaya and Bossun?

Watch this show legally on Crunchyroll.

Verdict

Beware of spoilers!

Good

Teppei and Jogasaki
Teppei and Jogasaki
  • Being the final episode, everyone except Queccion, Enigman, and a few others appear for the last time.
  • Seeing Teppei and Jogasaki getting along and working together in the basketball team brings closure to the two. In the first episode, Teppei was bullied by Jogasaki, and on the last episode, we get to see their past.
  • With Sojiro's usual misunderstanding of Saaya, Saaya finally confessed to Bossun about her feelings for him.

Bad

Too many characters that add nothing new
Too many characters that add nothing new
  • It's a bit awkward to have the last episode end with Saaya's confession.
  • Faithfulness to the manga: I'm not up to speed with the manga like you guys, and I know that the anime has neglected a few key scenes by messing with the chronological order of the manga's story.
  • It wouldn't hurt to see the basketball or more of Momoka's singing since the filler just padded Saaya's love confession chapter with Saaya's observation of Bossun and the gang working hard.
  • The training and Switch with Otakura and Reiko's scene didn't add anything interesting stuff.

Overall, it was a good episode, and for fans of Saaya, you'll love this one. With so much supporting characters appearing, it's difficult to give them attention. They just serve as padding material for Saaya's confession part. The basketball request is nice to have since it sheds light on two minor characters, but the other scenes lack humor or anything new/interesting to add.

Thanks

Thank you everyone for reading the Sket Dance Weekly report. I hope you enjoyed the series. As for wiki progress, I just need to work with Anime Vice and Sket Dance Wikia to complete the episode wiki pages.

Plot

Hello everyone and welcome to the Weekly Sket Dance report! Last week's episode is pretty random humor, and for this week's episode, we get down to business with one of the new characters, Kiri Kato. In this episode, we get to know his back story.

When Mimori tries to calm down Morita, Kiri shows up suddenly on Morita's shoulders. This causes Morita to throw a chair at Mimori, but Sasuke protects her. After Sasuke's talk with Kiri, Himeko asks Kiri to hang out with her, and she learns about Kiri's past. Later, someone from Kiri's past shows up, and Kiri snaps when that person causes Hime to cry.

Can Bossun and the gang stop Kiri's quest for justice before he crosses the line?

Verdict

Beware of spoilers!

Good

Kiri - the ninja of justice
Kiri - the ninja of justice
  • Kiri's character shines in this episode. He, Tsubaki, and Himeko are a lot alike. He could not help Kihara back then, and he tries to atone for his actions by making Kutsuwa apologize to Hime and Kihara. I enjoy Kiri's character.
  • The episode meshes flashbacks well without interrupting the flow.
  • For the fans who support Hime and Kiri, this episode is excellent for you.

Bad

  • Anime vs Manga: For those who read the manga, the episode covers a bit of chapter 157, but it skips Bossun's reaction when he sees Himeko and Kiri together. (I thank Balthierfan for pointing out that chapter.) I'm sure they'll cover it. It's an important part that shouldn't be neglected. (Thank you Utipintar and Anonymous Editor for pointing it out)

For those who read the manga, the episode covers a bit of chapter 157, but it skips Bossun's reaction when he sees Himeko and Kiri together. I'm sure they'll cover it. Also, I like how the anime alter one scene where Tsbuaki protects Mimori. Overall, the episode is great.

Thanks

Welcome everyone to the Weekly Sket Dance report! After Sojiro and Shinba are gone, Sasuke fills up Sojiro's spot as president while Mimori becomes vice president. We have two empty seats for two new characters.

Plot

Due to recent muggings of students by a ninja named Kagerō, Bossun and Himeko set up a sting operation where they plan to catch the ninja. In the second story, Tsubaki and his student council have a new member on their team, Hani Usami who has her own surprising quirks.

Sket Dance just went Naruto style!
Sket Dance just went Naruto style!

Can the Sket Dan team nab the ninja and what is Hani's quirky secret?

Verdict

Beware of spoilers!

Good

Bunny - Ms. Seductress
Bunny - Ms. Seductress
  • We have another tough character besides Himeko and Sasuke. They should do another tournament on skills. I loved the Gachinko Vivage rounds for Shinzo, Switch, and Bossun's match. Kiri Kato is cool ninja and the 2nd character with unreal hair color. Quecchon is the first one.
  • 2nd new character is Hani Usami who has two personalities. She reminds me of Launch from Dragon Ball. The exceptions is that Hani changes into Bunny mode when a man touches her, and she changes into Hani Usami mode when a woman touches her.

Bad

  • Hit or Miss with New Characters: You either hate, love, or be neutral with them. Every Sket Dance character has a quirk. Kiri Kato might be too cliche of a ninja for you or Hani Usami's personality might rub the wrong way. Plus, if you hate fan service, you probably won't like her.

Bizarre

Roman - the 4th wall girl
Roman - the 4th wall girl
  • Besides Hani Usami, Shinzo seems to be a masochist for Saaya's verbal abuse. Only in the anime, Shinzo is implied to like Saaya.
  • Roman is super strange. No one seems to mind she is busting through walls.
  • For some reason, the manga has Kiri Kato know Himeko's Onihime identity.

If you love these characters, this episode would be great for you. Overall, this episode is good because you got new characters with some quirks of their own.

Howdy everyone and welcome to the Sket Dance Weekly Report! Last week was a cool episode and a bit sad because Sojiro Agata and Shinba are gone. They have graduated Kaimei High School. This week's episode is back to the usual, funny Sket Dance business.

Plot

The first story is a homage to a Japanese folktale, The Crab and The Monkey, and Himeko is the crab seeking vengeance against Switch, the monkey, who has stolen the persimmon from Reiko, the mother crab.

In the second story, Kuroda asks the Sket Dan to restore Dante to his old, Visual Kei self because Dante has undergone an Enka transformation.

Dante has gone Enka!
Dante has gone Enka!

Can the Sket Dan get the job done!

Verdict

Beware of spoilers!

Good

Chiaki, a cute chestnut girl who speaks like Alvin the chipmunk
Chiaki, a cute chestnut girl who speaks like Alvin the chipmunk
  • The first story is pretty weird, and I don't know why Bossun is cow poop. Chestnut Chiaki and Hime in a little crab car are so cute.
  • A nice refreshing change to Dante's requests. In those requests, Dante usually confuses the Sket Dan with his words. Now, he has become Enka, a traditional Japanese singer, if I'm right.
  • For Gackt fans, you will enjoy Gackt singing Enka style music and one of the magical girl theme songs at the end of the episode.

Bad

  • This depends on if you like fan service or not. I know I said this a couple of times, but I'm sorry about that. I don't think Sket Dance needs these scenes to boost its ratings. Plus, it feels awkward to watch the show with a younger audience. I tend to watch Sket Dance with my siblings every Thursday evening, and one of them is 11 years younger than me.
  • Besides that, there's not much bad stuff. The first story can be a hit or miss if you don't like Rocket Dance.

Bizarre

Bossun is Cow Poop
Bossun is Cow Poop
  • Bossun is the cow poop, and Switch is harassing Moe with persimmon seeds. I don't know what grudge does Switch have against Moe.
  • Ayumi Kuramoto talks to the audience a lot just like Roman. Yet, she has these fan service scenes. I think this is the third time. The other one was in the episode where Koma and Dante asks the Sket Dan to help them with their relationship.
  • References: I caught a glimpse of Goku's head and Dragon Quest VIII. I didn't catch why Hime made a reference to Goku. Maybe you guys and gals can enlighten me.

Overall, this episode is funny, and you may like the 2nd story or the 1st story better than the other. In my opinion, I prefer the 2nd story. In the next episode preview, we see the new characters, Kiri Kato and Hani Usami. I'm stoked to see them. I have been avoiding their wiki pages in Sket Dance Wikia since I tend to watch and read the manga and anime side to side. I got spoiled about Momoka and Switch's relationship when I was out condensing relationship sections that were added by many anonymous editors. Don't worry, I won't spoil you guys.

Stitched Caps

I stitched these caps myself. I had a problem with Himeko's image because there is a lighting difference in the bottom scene. Please enjoy them.

Thanks

Thank you guys and gals for reading this weekly report. Please support the anime and the wiki editors in both communities: Sket Dance Wikia and Anime Vice.

Welcome to the Weekly Sket Dance report! This week, we have another strange episode that involves Switch's latest invention and a test of Hime's Tsukkomi skills.

Plot

Himeko vs Komiyama
Himeko vs Komiyama

Switch introduces his latest invention, Braviera, that can pick up animal's thoughts and translate it within a 5 meter radius. Things go wrong when Braviera starts picking up thoughts of the Sket Dan crew, and the Sket Dan start getting into an argument. Will the Sket Dan kiss and make up?

In the Roaring Laughter Tsukkomi Battle, Himeko faces off with Komiyama to help Momoka and show that she is the best Tsukkomi. Will Himeko win?

Verdict

Good

Oh Roman
Oh Roman
  • Bossun and Himeko are a natural comedic duo with Himeko whacking him with Tsukkomi.
  • Even thought the Sket Dan gang thought Hosuke say those kind words, it turns out to be Roman. She thinks some weird stuff.
  • Bossun's bashful face is damn contagious.

Bad

  • The first part of the story is weak and a bit slow while the 2nd story is the most funny one.
  • Awkward fan service: During the beginning, there is an awkward shot where Saaya just walks up to Bossun who is looking at her chest.

Overall, this episode is good since the first part is a bit slow. It's a bit of hit or miss with some folks because some parts are funny while some are not.

Welcome everyone to the Weekly Sket Dance report! The week is flying fast, and we have another lovely episode of Sket Dance that concludes the awkward yet hysterical School Rhapsody arc.

Plot

While the Sket Dan and their classmates are enjoying their field trip on the ski resort, Bossun and Himeko's body switch is not a secret with Shinzo and Reiko who figure it out on their own. As Himeko goes with Moe for a photoshoot, Switch gets distracted with Reiko and Sasuke, and Saaya asks Bossun (Himeko) to have a chat with her in private.

How would Bossun (Himeko) answer Saaya's question about how Bossun feels about Himeko?

Verdict

Good

Will they stay as friends?
Will they stay as friends?
  • Interestingly, Shinzo and Reiko figure out Himeko and Bossun's little secret while Otakura and Reiko think Switch and Saaya are a pair. Speaking of Switch, Himeko suspects Switch likes Momoka. We got tons of shipping moments.
  • Saaya has an incredible character evolution, and her scene reveals how much she loves Sket Dan and Bossun for helping her.
  • Quest Dance is a funny short. When I saw slime Bossun, I immediately thought Dragon Monster Warrior or Dragon Quest video game.

Bad

  • Over Dramatization: I find the Niigata dropping scene too much.
  • Hit or Miss with Manga fans: Fans of the manga might like the scenes in the manga better because it gets to the point without the extended scenes and Saaya's added flashback. I don't mind Saaya's flashback.

Overall, this episode is great, and everyone would love most of it. Though, I find Biscuit Dance, the best of all the shorts. Quest Dance is good, but the Super Mariko Broken did a better job in parodying video games.

Here's a gallery of the characters. Please enjoy.

Hello everyone and welcome to the Weekly Sket Dance report! Now, we're in an arc called School Trip Rhapsody where Bossun and Himeko have switched bodies during a school field trip to Niigata. Who knows what embarrassing things await Bossun and Himeko.

Plot

With Himeko and Bossun's body switched, things get tense when their female classmates asks Himeko (Bossun) to change or to take a bath, and Bossun (Himeko)'s help is making things worse. Meanwhile, Switch is keeping an eye out for Saaya, Sasuke is acting like a cat, and Chuma is making a cure for Bossun and Himeko. Can the two bear each other's burden despite sheer embarrassment?

Don't forget to check out the wiki page and its image gallery!

Verdict

Good

Himeko: I know you'll touch them, right?
Himeko: I know you'll touch them, right?
  • There are tons of hilarious moments in this episode. Tsubaki is now acting like a cat because he took the hypno drug while the cat meowed at him. It explains why Bossun is cat boy in the opening.
  • In Bossun's body, Himeko's answers has make Bossun's reputation go down when she blurts that she wants to see Himeko's body naked in the bath. Saaya gets upset. Plus, I find Bossun's reaction to Himeko's request hilarious when she wants Bossun to touch them.
  • Roman and Reiko are nice surprises with their scenes. Reiko thinks Switch is stalking Saaya while Roman finds out that Bossun and Himeko switched bodies.

Bad

Airing the toilet scene might be a bit too naughty for kids
Airing the toilet scene might be a bit too naughty for kids
  • Hit or Miss: I watched the episode twice and read some comments from fans on Crunchyroll. After Roman breaks the 4th wall, the creator tells the audiences that he cannot air the changing and bathroom scenes because we have a young audience. For me, the changing scene does not seem too bad, but the bathroom scene is hard. Once you read the chapter, you learn that Himeko and Bossun help each use the toilet. If that scene is in the anime, you would hear urinating sounds.
  • Pointless Fan Service: Mimori's bouncing breasts and the Kuramoto's bath scenes seems out of place. I enjoyed Daisy's scene where she rips Tsubaki's cat ears off. Sket Dance is an anime that doesn't need fan service to boost ratings. Fan Service should be for more adult shows.

Overall, the episode is great for everyone, but the missing manga scenes can be a nuisance to those who wished to see it animated. The preview sounds exciting when Himeko asks Bossun what he would say to Saaya's question. I hope Saaya's heart won't break in the next episode.

Plot

Welcome to the Sket Dance's weekly report! Time flies by fast, and we got another Sket Dance episode. For those who are enjoying summer vacation, watching anime can make time feel like it's going by too fast.

Kaimei High School has a special field trip to Niigata, and when the teachers asks how the rooms are split, Chiaki suggests doing a giant rope skipping competition. With the rooms decided, Saaya is wondering about Bossun and Himeko's relationship. On the bus, Himeko gets motion sickness, and Chuuma showcases his drugs. He has Bossun and Tsubaki test the Exchange drug while Hime takes medication for motion sickness. What would happen next?

Verdict

Good

Saaya, our tsundere girl who has changed a lot since Ep. 52
Saaya, our tsundere girl who has changed a lot since Ep. 52
  • A Nice Change:It's not an episode about a request or the misadventures of Sket Dan. It's an episode about a school trip, something different for a change.
  • Saaya's Spotlight: Saaya seems to be the center of attention in this episode. She has become more amiable with her classmates and the Sket Dan. For fans, she got a little cuter.
  • Shipping Questions: Like Jin, Saaya asks about Bossun and Hime's relationship, and Switch is the guy who answers the same question. Bossun and Himeko's relationship have some implications and that leaves room for speculation which is great.

Bad

  • I couldn't find anything that weren't annoying. For people who hate tsunderes, this episode might not be great since there's another tsundere character, Horii Kanako.

Bizarre

Body Switching Time!
Body Switching Time!
  • The opening sequence has some new changes. Instead of Sasuke receiving a picture from Bossun, it's Saaya. She gets picture of Hosuke from Bossun.
  • Chuuma's pill case is full of surprises. I love how they end with a cliffhanger since Bossun and Himeko switched bodies for the whole school field trip.
  • Chiaki is like a vacuum as she eats a whole bag of chips in seconds.

Overall, the episode is funny and enjoyable with some shipping stuff and packed with a nice surprise with Chuuma's inventions.
