Overview

Hello everybody and welcome to the sixth Sket Dance weekly article! It is usually Takashichea who writes up these weekly articles, but he let me take a shot at it this week. Thanks again Takashichea!

So without further ado, I present to you KuroNekoXIII's first attempt at a Weekly Report: Sket Dance Ep 28 - Shinba Michiru's Elegant Cooking.

Plot

Lights! Camera! Action!

In this episode, Kamei's Broadcasting Club is organizing its debut lunch hour talk show, and their first guest is student council member Shinba Michiru. The purpose of the talk show was to broadcast Michiru's cooking talents to the school, with Agata and Daisy as his assistants. However, things start to get out of hand when Agata's unmotivated and flippant mood gets the best of him. Not only that, but Daisey is also in a worse-than-usual mood. How will the charismatic Shinba Michiru maintain his "princely" and "calm" facade with his assistants' lack of cooperation?

Updates

Kamei Lunchtime Show Opening

Kamei High School acquired a TV-set for every classroom which provides intra-school broadcasts during lunch break. These broadcasts are run by the Broadcasting Club.
MoimoiOne of Daisey-chan's plushie toys, called "Moimoi". She referred to it as being her favourite plushie toy, however, it's arm was ripped off.

Verdict

The Good

Pull it together.. Agata! Daisey!
Pull it together.. Agata! Daisey!

We learned a bit more about the student council and their characteristics. Each of their unique personalities brings out the other, which made the episode very enjoyable.

Yup. He's the smart one of the bunch.

We get a better sense of Switch's popularity with Kamei's student body when it comes to technology; which usually leaves Bossun and Himeko feeling jealous.

When all else fails, bring out the afros!

Humor; just plain humor. The humor in this episode is one of the best in the entire series. I won't go into details since you'd get a better sense watching the episode than reading what's written here.

The Bad

I couldn't really find any bad points about this episode. Overall, I think it was very well done. The only points that I think could've made the episode better were:

  • The Sket Dan club wasn't officially broadcasted on the school TV
  • it would've been interesting to see a glimpse of the next episode of "Kamei Lunchtime Show" where they feature Chuu-san and his explosives.

Sket Dance Character Fun Facts

These are just a bunch of interesting facts revealed about some of the characters featured during this episode (be warned that these may contain minuscule spoilers from this episode....but not crazy major ones that would ruin the entire series).

Urusai Fuwafuwa Atama!

1) Daisey-chan's Abbreviation Dictionary Update

a) UFA - Urasai Fuwafuwa Atama (Shut-up, Airhead)

b) SFA - Shine Furafure Atama (Die, Airhead )

2) Michiru Shinba cannot tolerate alcohol whatsoever, and due to his intolerance, his personality can be changed drastically.

From Beauty.......

Poor Daisey T_T

3) Daisey really loves her plushies...to the extent that she'd cry over their loss. (I actually found it kinda cute when she began to cry. It made me feel sorry for the girl).

4) Agata and Shinba seem to have been close friends since middle school

Yagi-chan the perfect news reporter

5) Kaoru Yagi, who is one of the members of the Broadcasting Club, can maintain an expersionless face, no matter what the circumstances.

@KuroNekoXIII:

Nice job! I really love your captions and how creative you are with your images. Beauty to Beast, Daisy, and Yagi's captions are sweet. Love the character fun facts. However, I think you gave away the answers to one of the trivia questions. I don't care.

Reading your report is always fun. Looks I have to write better after finishing Beelzebub's report and Anime and Manga Differences.

As for the episode, it really shows another side of Shinba and more information about the Student Council. I see to it that we create a concept page for it. Though, we don't have an official name for Kaimei School Student Council.

and here was I expecting Shinba to pull an EpicMealTime style approach when he got drunk. Great episode still. and Daisey is as soul-shatteringly awesome as usual.

@takashichea:

Thanks man! Lol glad you liked the captions :D I try to add a little humor to add more life to the pictures.

Now that you mention it, I think i did give away one of the answers D: I can edit it if you like

Thanks again! I appreciate your compliments!

Yes this episode was definitely one of my top favourite episodes of the series. We kinda got to see another side to the student council, other than the usual "Sket Dan's Rival" vibe they usually emit.

A concept page on the Student Council would be cool. We'd need more info on their history, in my opinion, so that the page can be a solid one.

@Halberdierv2:

ROFL @ the video! Now Shinba's "elegant cooking" wouldve been epic if it ended up like that XD
