Welcome to Sket Dance weekly report! Last week's episode had a new character called Saaya Agata and a new pet, Hosuke. It was the first time we had a female tsundere character in the show to bash the trope. We are left with the impressions that Saaya likes Bossun, and Bossun has now four potential love interest, Hime, Roman, Saaya, and Ayano.


It starts with Fumi bringing Koma to the Sket Dan to help her. Koma's request is about a boy named Urehara who confessed to her. She asks the Sket Dan to give her advise on how to handle the situation given her monstrous strength that she uses whenever she gets embarrassed. In the second story, Dante asks the Sket Dan about a certain girl, and Koma comes to them about a certain boy later. The two have a crush on each other?

Can Sket Dance help Koma and Dante with their love problems?


Beware of spoilers!

Koma is a big girl who has monstrous strength. She is a shy girl who whispers, and she is good at doing Sengoku impressions. Another interesting fact is that she wears a very heavy vest. I have no idea why.

  • It's funny that Dante and Koma both have communication problems making this episode a light-hearted romantic comedy.
  • This is the first episode where Bossun suffers the most bodily injuries due to the "Koma cannon!"
  • Dante's words always confuses the Sket Dan and leads to misunderstandings and more pain for Bossun.

  • Fan Service: For those who hate fan service, this episode is the first one to show cleavage. What was the point of showing Ayumi and Hosuke at the hot springs? Personally, I don't think Sket Dance need fan service to boost ratings.
  • Plus, they emphasized Koma's bust and butt in one scene.

  • Hosuke imitating Dante is pretty strange since you would expect a parrot to do it.
  • The only time Roman was good at drawing (in this episode) is when she draws a wall to cover the hole.
  • Many Crunchyroll users mention that Saaya's method of stalking is a reference to Snake's method (from Metal Gear Solid) via the "box."

Overall, this episode is great and shows how love can ruined to due poor communications. Sket Dan is all about romance issues. That's an awesome advice.


Geo used to do this in his weekly reports, so I'll carry on the tradition.

I forgot Anime Vice is an international community, so some people don't understand the Hooters reference.

Hooters is a restaurant where busty women in short, tight clothes serve food to their patrons and a slang for breasts. Plus, the hooters' mascot is an owl.

Don't worry, I won't make too many obscure references.

LOL Hooters reference! XD Bro, you need to lighten up on the fan service. At least, they don't do full on ecchi scenes with panty shots. Anyways, I feel bad for Dante who supposed to be a babe magnet due to being a winner in the Kaimei Rock Festival.

Sorry, I forgot about your response. Yeah, I guess I should loosen up, but if Sket Dance resorts to panty shots or full-on gainax bounce, I'll lose some respect for the show. They never did show Dante singing in the show.
