Overview

Welcome to the 11th Weekly Sket Dance report! I'm Takashichea, a proud member of Team W.I.K.I. Nation. My team and I are proud to present you weekly coverage of this beloved series and our hard work on the wiki. For those who do know my teammates, they are Annabanana, KuroNekoXIII, MohsinMan99, HalberdierV2, Hibaru, and Piface314.

This week's episode has a thrilling crime and mystery story with a big plot twist that goes beyond breaking windows. No, it's breaking hearts.

Plot

For Episode 34, The Glass Man. Please see the image gallery for those love images.

Yagi and Saori Yasuda ask SKET Dan for permission to document their activities. When Bossun and Hime tell Yagi that they are boring, Yagi gives them a case to investigate. The case is about a culprit who breaks windows without stealing anything. As SKET Dan unravels the case, they discover that the culprit is not who they think it is and how the answer is right in front of them.

Tune in and watch Sket Dance episode 33!

Verdict

Beware of Spoilers! Don't worry, I won't give out the ending.

Good

Bossun reveals the clue
Bossun reveals the clue
  • This case is what makes this episode stand out in the SKET Dance's usual two story, humorous slapstick style. Plus, SKET Dan is solving more than crime but love.
  • Switch looks awesome as Sherlock Homes, but Bossun makes a better detective with his concentration ability.
  • Anime/Manga Comparisons: The anime did a better job in bring closure with the two individuals of the case by these scenes: They thank SKET Dance for solving their issues, and they continue working in their clubs happily. The manga did not have a scene like that.

Bad

It's tough to say what's bad in this episode. I can't think of any. Maybe, they overuse the afro gimmick joke too much.

Bizarre

Bossun's odd thinking
Bossun's odd thinking
  • Baseball players are all weird and funny.
  • Bossun's thought bubble seems to make it appear that he likes Yagi.
  • Anime/Manga Comparisons: Reiko Yuki and Roman's short scenes are not in the manga, but they are great, little humorous scenes. I love how Reiko thinks the culprit is a ghost while Roman thinks the culprit is a monster.

Overall, the episode is excellent because it shows that Sket Dan is not all fun, random games. No, it has drama and mystery. Though, we haven't seen a tragedy story like Switch's origin story in the anime yet. We still need to see the origin stories for Bossun and Hime.

What a coincidence! I just finished watching the episode right now, lol and when I logged back on, your blog post was the first on the forum list :D

Amazing report Taka! This episode was one of my favourites as well. I'm glad that the English teacher made an appearance, since he didn't show up since the second episode, I believe. I love it when he speaks in English, and the fact that the episode starts with a dramatic dun dun dun dun theme, followed by the teacher's "Oh God~" was priceless!

Agreed! Just because they are known for being a weird club, doesn't mean they don't mean business :P

Though, we haven't seen a tragedy story like Switch's origin story in the anime yet. We still need to see the origin stories for Bossun and Hime.

I know, I'm hoping that a back story for either Bossun or Hime would come soon, it would show us how both characters grew and evolved.

Keep up the good work Taka! :D

@KuroNekoXIII:

Thannks! Don't forget how Kanegi says "teamwork" and make SKET Dan say it in "Engrish."

It's too bad that the anime is skipping around and teasing us. I can't wait to see Hime and Bossun's origin story.
