The News

After HalberdierV2 and MohsinMan99 informed me about the Sket Dance X Gintama crossover back in October, I find another crossover: Sket Dance and Bakuman.

According to the sources below, Sket Dance and Bakuman will have 3 episodes for the crossover, 2 in October and 1 in November. It's already past October, and there is no release dates for these episodes. Not much is said from both creators or producers who are going to make these crossover episodes possible. Plus, Gintama X Sket Dance crossover episodes already occurred in September 26 and 29.

**I have no idea if the crossover for both Sket Dance and Bakuman will occur. I'm hoping for it since they did announce to do it.

Please see Dochaus's report and the Sket Dance and Gintama Differences.

For those who do know Bakuman

Bakuman is about a young teenager, Moritaka Mashiro, who thinks he can't be a manga creator/ mangaka due to his mother's disapproval, disinterest in life, and his lack of confidence in his drawing skills. When he meets Akito Takagi, Akito rekindles Mashiro's dreams of becoming a manga creator and marrying his crush, Miho Azuki. Akito and Mashiro team up to become the best and to serialized their first show.

Characters

Moritaka Mashiro
The artist whose dream is to have his own series and to marry his sweetheart.
2. Akito Takagi
The smartest guy drops his ordinary career goal to make a successful manga and anime series with Mashiro.
3. Miho Azuki
Her dream is to become a talented voice actress for a leading role in an anime.

For those who do know Sket Dance

Sket Dance is about a club, SKET Dan, that has trio of students who help their classmates solve their problems. The S.K.E.T. in SKET Dan stands for Support, Kindness, Encouragement, and Troubleshoot.

Characters

Bossun

Bossun is the leader who solves dire problems with his concentration ability; he's is a killer marksman with a slingshot.

Hime Onizuka

Hime is the powerhouse of the team; she is only female member with a wicked field hockey stick. Don't be fooled by her pretty appearance.

Kazuyoshi Usui

Switch is the anime Otaku and computer whiz who invents inventions and formulate strategies.

The latest episode of Bakuman II that came out featured a scene where Takagi and Mashiro were watching Sket Dance on the TV in their apartment studio.

Thank you! :)   
For everyone:

As you can tell, I have not watched Bakuman. I will try it out for the Sket Dance's wiki project. The plot I had given for Bakuman might not be great.

I read the first chapter of Bakuman a while back, but I havent been up-to-date with the manga and didn't watch the anime yet. But it would be interesting to see a cross-over between the two series. It might even give me the drive to start watching Bakuman.

Great article Taka, as always! :)

@MohsinMan99: @KuroNekoXIII:

Thanks guys!

I was searching for that Sket Dance cameo image to show it to you guys, but most of Bakuman episodes season II were taken off.

Edit:

As of now, I read the first volume. It's great!

There's more. I think it's just cameos. Why did Animenewsnetwork and the others report this?

Guess who Shinzo pretending to be?

Sadly, all this hype is for cameos. I'll get the Bakuman version.

@takashichea:There was also the cameo of the infamous antihero from you-know-where. :)

@Dream:

I think I found your scene when I was out image hunting for Christmas things.

It's such a shame that they did not do a real crossover. The news on Crunchyroll and Animenewsnetwork should have been called Cameos of Sket Dance and Bakuman.
