Plot

Hello everyone and welcome to the Weekly Sket Dance report! Last week's episode is pretty random humor, and for this week's episode, we get down to business with one of the new characters, Kiri Kato. In this episode, we get to know his back story.

When Mimori tries to calm down Morita, Kiri shows up suddenly on Morita's shoulders. This causes Morita to throw a chair at Mimori, but Sasuke protects her. After Sasuke's talk with Kiri, Himeko asks Kiri to hang out with her, and she learns about Kiri's past. Later, someone from Kiri's past shows up, and Kiri snaps when that person causes Hime to cry.

Can Bossun and the gang stop Kiri's quest for justice before he crosses the line?

Verdict

Beware of spoilers!

Good

Kiri - the ninja of justice
Kiri - the ninja of justice
  • Kiri's character shines in this episode. He, Tsubaki, and Himeko are a lot alike. He could not help Kihara back then, and he tries to atone for his actions by making Kutsuwa apologize to Hime and Kihara. I enjoy Kiri's character.
  • The episode meshes flashbacks well without interrupting the flow.
  • For the fans who support Hime and Kiri, this episode is excellent for you.

Bad

  • Anime vs Manga: For those who read the manga, the episode covers a bit of chapter 157, but it skips Bossun's reaction when he sees Himeko and Kiri together. (I thank Balthierfan for pointing out that chapter.) I'm sure they'll cover it. It's an important part that shouldn't be neglected. (Thank you Utipintar and Anonymous Editor for pointing it out)

For those who read the manga, the episode covers a bit of chapter 157, but it skips Bossun's reaction when he sees Himeko and Kiri together. I'm sure they'll cover it. Also, I like how the anime alter one scene where Tsbuaki protects Mimori. Overall, the episode is great.

Thanks

After watching this episode, I kinda thought that Himeko and Kiri would make a pretty good match, rather than the popular Bossun X Hime pairing.

@UsachanMaN:

Yeah, the pair seems interesting. I like how Kiri and Himeko are like loners while Himeko and Bossun are more of comedic pair. I hope to see the anime up and running to show more of Kiri and Himeko kicking butt.

@takashichea: Agreed! :D Random question, but are you up to date with the manga? I havent read it yet and was wondering if I should pick it up or just wait until they hopefully continue the anime.

@UsachanMaN:

I'm not up to date with the manga. I started reading chapters that the anime cover since the Switch Off arc to fill in the wiki section for manga and anime differences. You should start reading the manga from the beginning. You'll see some differences, but as you get to school trip rhapsody arc, it had a major altercation to the graphic content. Plus, the stories between Saaya and Bossun & Kiri and Himeko are altered in continuity. That was what my teammates, Utipintar and Balthierfan, from Sket Dance Wikia told me.

@takashichea: Hmm, I see. So I guess the manga gives you the whole picture of the story line and the character origin/growth. Thanks for letting me know! I'll definitely give the manga a shot :P
