Overview

Purpose: To get people to watch/ or read Sket Dance or Gintama, to reignite wiki passion in both series, and to get some ideas.

Hello guys. I'm Takashichea, a member of Team Wiki Nation and part of other teams on other franchises as well. Recently, due to a request by Piface314, Team Wiki Nation is created to tackle Sket Dance franchise with three partners, Anna, Piface314, and Hibaru. As I watched the show and did research on the web, I noticed Gintama pops out a lot. I learned that Kenta Shinohara was the assistant to Hideaki Sorachi, author of Gintama.

I haven't watch or read Gintama yet, and I have only watched Sket Dance up to episode 15.

Let's brainstorm!

Thank Halberdierv2 for this image.

Differences

  • Hime's weapon of choice is her field hockey stick while Kagura's weapon of choice is her parasol.
  • Relationships with the leader: Hime's relationship with Bossun is more of a close friends, and Hime tends to blush sometimes when Bossun compliments her cooking or other things. There is some chemistry between the two. Compared to Kagura, her relationship with Gintoki is said to be a father to daughter relationship.
  • Kagura is more vulgar than Hime because Kagura just picks her nose without any sense of shame.

  • Switch communicates by a laptop and speech synthesis software while Shinpachi speaks normally.
  • Switch's sibling is a brother while Shinpachi's sibling is a sister.
  • Switch is smarter than Shinpachi.
  • Shinpachi is the straight man.
Shinpachi Shimura

Total: Bossun to Gintoki = 3, Hime to Kagura = 2, and Switch to Shinpachi = 1. I don't know much about Switch, and Shinpachi's wikia info is vague.

Points of Interests

  • Sket Dance is set in a school setting while Gintama is set in a feudal period and futuristic style combo. (sorry guys, I couldn't describe Gintama's setting as well.)

Updates

I will list any changes and suggestions from comments below. I want to see the change and the additions of information.

Thank Mohsinman99 for his contributions.

  • Gintoki is a laidback and a smart guy.
  • Shinpachi is a hard worker but not that bright. A straight man.
  • Kagura loves to pick fights, insult others, and eats a lot. She''s more vulgar than Hime.

Afterword

I will use these thoughts and comments to write for the similarities to other franchises. I used mostly wikia for Gintama to compare my experiences from watching Sket Dance anime. I have no trouble spoiling myself to Gintama during my quick research, but for Sket Dance, I don't read the wiki or other sources. See example below.

Similarities to other franchises

See Shaman King franchise for an example. I was proud of this work. It's amazing how Zatch bell and Law of Ueki is similar to Shaman King. I could not relate D. Gray Man or Blue Exorcist to Shaman King more than its use of supernatural and demon themes.
