Overview

Welcome to the Sket Dance weekly report by Team W.I.K.I. Nation. Right now, I'm contemplating about stopping the Sket Dance reports because I got multiple anime projects with its weekly reports. Don't worry fans, Sora_thekey will provide coverage on the Sket Dance anime. He's a new member to our team. Please welcome him. He's more funnier than me. It's more time effective to work on the wiki and provide images while Sora does the reviews.

It's teamwork.

Plot

Ep. 42: Suddenly, Momoka's Road to Being a Stage Actress - "Yaniwani Momoka butai joyū e no michi" (やにわにモモカ舞台女優への道)

This episode has two stories about Momoka, Hime, and Roman. The first one is about Momoka who asks her friends to help her gain a deeper insight into a script for her audition in a play. The second story begins with Hime wondering what career she would have in the future, and when Switch brings up Roman, Roman appears and brings good news. She has made her first debut as a manga artist.

Will Momoka understand the meaning behind the script, will Hime know what she would become in the future, and did Roman really made her debut as a manga artist?

Find out by watching Sket Dance on Crunchyroll.

*This episode is based chapter 99 (vol. 11) and chapter 78 (vol. 9).

Verdict

Beware of Spoilers!

Good

There's so many hilarious scenes in this episode. I pick the best three, and you guys do the same.

  • Bossun and Momoka's acting scenes ends so randomly. Out of nowhere, Bossun hands Momoka, an Anthony action figure.

  • Bakuman Reference: Roman just makes me laugh hard when I made the connection. Will she and Fumi make their anime debut? I think so since the judges showcased Roman's work, Sudden Temptation.
  • After Bossun and Momoka make Japanese words sound like English words, Bossun ends it with Shinji running away. See this pun, Shinjirarenai (Unbelievable) sounds like Shinji run away.

Bad

Sudden Temptation = old gags
Sudden Temptation = old gags
  • There's not much bad things in Momoka's story. However, Roman's second story seems like her other story where she shows off her nonsensical story for the first time. Not to hurt the Roman fans, but the humor seems stale. No offense though. Roman should show off more herself instead her silly manga story. She is one of the funniest girls in the series. I liked her alien call, her rivalry with Switch at drawing Bossun, and her drive to please Bossun, her "prince."

Bizarre

  • Roman's Alien Call
    Roman's Alien Call
    Roman's "Tee Hee" and sound effects are bizarre, but it suits Roman. Her alien call is the best I find her crying scene cute. Not to sound weird, okay guys.
  • Why is Momoka's singing "Nervous" so catchy? It didn't stick with me.
  • Momoka's luck streak in her career is unbelieving lucky. She is a delinquent whose performance in the puppet episode got her career in voicing anime characters. She's a pop idol, and now she's an actress. Sket Dance really likes pop idol culture. The most obsessed guys who love anime and pop idols are Otakura and Switch, of course.

Overall, I find this episode enjoyable and give it a four out of five. Momoka's story is better than Roman in terms of humor. Roman just needs to show off more of her quirky personality and less of her craptastic drawings.

I would like to see Switch, Sasuke, and Roman participating in a crappy drawing show off. I mean artist showoff contest. Plus, I haven't seen much of Roman's Otome filter.

Trivia

I add some folks.

Thanks

A copy of this weekly report is on Sket Dance Wikia. It has been modified to promote that community. I write reports for the community since it needs love like Anime Vice. Oh, sh*t. You know what fans, I'm contradict myself. In a previous statement and blog, I stated that I will discontinue Sket Dance reports. I take it back. Plus, I'm not promoting Sket Dance and its team in Anime Vice. What was I thinking?

I will keep writing Sket Dance Weekly Reports for both sites despite all the wiki projects, school, community service, and stuff. It'll be late but it's for a good cause. It's going to be tough.

The best part in this episode for me was Momoka's acting in front of the director and him later commenting that "she is really talented".

Oh, and "Shinji run away!" was another highlight. :)

O_o Taka, you're one of the editors on Sket Dance Wikia? AWESOME!

Sorry it took me a while to comment, Taka!

This is one of my favorite episodes! My favorite is the first half of the episode with them acting with Momoka. Seeing Bossun acting so well surprised me. Its funny how Bossun looks down on himself, saying that he is a bad main character, but if you think about it, he's a really talented guy. He's smart when it comes to riddles ans solving things, a good actor, an artist, singer, and bass guitarist; and last but not least his talent when it comes to slingshots :P What else should he complain about?

As for the second part, I didnt really mind the fact that we had to rewatch Roman talking about her manga. I agree with you though, it would be better if they include more about her and not her manga. I found the plot of her manga hilarious, and having Bossun, Hime and Switch critiquing it throughout was hilarious! Yea I found the part when she cried kinda cute too :P

Quotes

Hime

  • Whooo! He's hugging her from behind! Getting hugged from behind is a girl's number one "I'd be embarrassed if it happens to me, but I've always longed for it!" situation!
  • What was that? "More fun nice night"?! What do you mean "More fun nice night"?!! Don't talk nonsense! (I like how she says night-tto :P)
  • Enough, you two! You're just sayin' sh!t that sounds like English!

Bossun

  • "Shinji run away"

Switch

  • "Let's try it, voice change! *click*"

Great report Taka! :D

@KuroNekoXIII:

Thanks! I always love your comments Kuro.

Whooo! He's hugging her from behind! Getting hugged from behind is a girl's number one "I'd be embarrassed if it happens to me, but I've always longed for it!" situation!

Whoa! I didn't see that reference to the episode, embarrassed girl. Well, Hime didn't get hug, but you probably know what Hime will do. She'll beat Bossun up even more than before. Heck, she pull out her Fragrance hockey stick out of thin air.

Yea I found the part when she cried kinda cute too :P

I'm glad that I'm not only one. :)

Bossun reminds of a certain wiki editor who's too critical of himself and won't spotlight his wiki editor. He's too modest and humble.
