Welcome to a special edition of the Sket Dance reports. This is the 4th report for the Sket Dance project on Anime Vice, and episode 26 of Sket Dance is the second crossover episode from another series, Gintama, that started the Crossover in its episode, 227. There will be tons of references to other animes and lots of 4th walls broken.
For those of you who don't know my team, my teammates are Annabanana, KuroNekoXIII, Hibaru, HalberdierV2, and Piface314.
From the Sket Dance and Gintama Similarites and Differences blog, Halberdierv2 and Mohsinman99 had told me about a crossover coming to Sket Dance this week. It's thanks to them, Anna and my team are prepared to tackle it.
In this episode, Gintoki tells his team that they are doing a crossover with Sket Dance, but Gintoki thinks that Sket Dance is going into their territory and stealing the spotlight. When Sket Dance comes in, Bossun and Gintoki have a challenge on Treasure Island where the winner is the first team to find the Pizazz Pizazz fruit. The Devil fruit has a strange effect on the user.
Who will win the challenge and become the best odd jobs trio anime? What is the Devil fruit's effect?
In this second crossover episode, Bossun and his team meet Gintoki's team again due to a machine error. They have a nice conversation that has some jokes and discoveries while Sket Dance and Gintoki time travel through a montage of Sket Dance episode clips.
Will Sket Dan and Gintoki's team gain closure and ever lasting relationship or will they have bad blood with each other?
Beware of Mild Spoilers!
Despite the fact that my first Gintama episode is the crossover one, I feel that Gintama has a better crossover episode than Sket Dance. The reasons are that Gintama has more action, some innuendos, and the flow of the episode is not too dragged out compared to the Sket Dance version.
Both crossovers are strange and funny. Originally, I am excited to watch these episodes a week ago, and when I get to watch the episodes, my expectations are almost fulfilled. I just wish the Sket Dance episode has more of a plot or some kind of challenge to make it more interesting.
The Gintama episode is making a parody on the One Piece X Toriko crossover. See these images.
There are tons of references to other animes, but I won't list them. You have to look them on our wiki page for episode 227 of Gintama and episode 26 of Sket Dance. I'm already giving too much spoilers.

I thank you guys for reading this. You guys are awesome! This is for my community and my team W.I.K.I Nation who are working hard. I'm sorry that I couldn't get good images, but I will post more and Anna will post the Sket Dance's images.
This week, it is Anna's turn to do Sket Dance 26 and the two other anime episodes, so I figured I should work Gintama 227 just for the crossover event and the characters from Switch Off: Sawa Yamauchi, Masafumi Usui, and Yukino Hirai. It will take some time.
Give my team a round of applause.
Edit: As of 9/30, I finished Gintama 227.
