Overview

For those of you who are new to Sket Dance, Sket Dance is about a trio of students whose club, Sket Dan, help their fellow classmates with their problems. Most requests are about romance, finding things, solving crime, setting a play, and more. The setting of Sket Dan is in a school in the modern era of Japan. It's the same time period as our own (2009). Most students that Sket Dan helped are part of clubs, and they are pretty unique in their own way.

Overview

Welcome to the fifth weekly Sket Dance article! Today was a busy day, and my team and I managed to finished Beelzebub 36 and Sket Dance 27. For those of you who don't know my team, my teammates are Annabanana, KuroNekoXIII, Hibaru, HalberdierV2, and Piface314. Let's discuss this exciting, promiscuous, and hilarious episode.

Plot

In this episode, it has two parts: Sket Dan meets Misora who taking the place of a teacher's assistant, and for the second part, Sket Dan and Misora learn more about Switch's inventions. All does not go well when Misora feels that her clumsiness has made her into a failure while Switch's inventions are another level of failure.

Will Sket Dan help Misora with her clumsiness problem and How Switch's inventions fail?

Tune in and watch Sket Dance episode 27.

Updates

Sket Dance has a new opening and closing theme: "Graffiti" by Gackt and "Milk to Chocolate (ミルクとチョコレート)" by ChocoLe.

New Character
Misora Remi is a former TV idol who stars in a show called "Together With Mommy." Her dreams are to be a teacher for the real thing.

Verdict

Good and Bizarre

*I'm going to make it a bit different this time since I have 3 nice set of images.

  • Switch has a wide variety of inventions, and all of them have a strange flaw.

Left to Right:

  1. Unnamed Moe, robot, girl head - Switch had made as a gift to Otakura. It cools down ramen by blowing on it.
  2. Mandoseru - A pun that has Madrill (mandoriru) and backpack (randoseru) combined to create this bag.
  3. Scope-Ion - Designed to zoom in and track things.
  4. Hover Shoes - Designed to float above the ground.
  5. Cheer Up Bazooka - Designed for long distance cheering.
  • Even though Misaro is clumsy, she is still an idol. Take a look at her images. Sket Dance has veered off from innocence to adult.

Ramen Doll: Is it nice and cold?
Ramen Doll: Is it nice and cold?
  • The female robot head that blows ramen has a hilarious scene with Bossun. It's my favorite moment in this episode.

Bad

I couldn't find anything bad. There were a lot of ecchi moments but it's not that bad. For the opening and closing theme, they are pretty good. Though I wonder why the girls are in undergarments while Hime acts innocent and cute.

Overall, I say the second half of the episode has the best laughter material.

There were a lot of Anime and Manga differences. Be sure to check out the wiki page on episode 27 once you finished the series.

Trivia

I asked my teammates to whip out some questions for you guys, but some of them were not linked to pages. They are floating randomly when you take the quiz. Sorry about that.

*I found the questions and linked them. Too bad that they are not on the character pages when I add trivia.

KuroNekoXIII"s Trivia

If you did these, then you will see something else or a different question that does not relate to Sket Dance.

Thanks

I thank you guys for reading this; I thank my team for being there to support each other. The Roman and Momoka image is uploaded by HalberdierV2, and I did the plot and images for Sket Dance episode 27 for a fellow teammate who was busy. Please see our work and the Team W.I.K.I Nation Vitae list.

Please see SketchBook and our lovely pages.

I finally finished the whole plot with the anime/manga differences in addition to the Beelzebub's report. It was a long day.

Remember, if you really love a franchise, manga, or anime, be sure to blog about it. It'll help our community grow. Over the last two weeks, there was a lot of weekly blogs such as Sayonara, Zetsubou Sensei, Fate/Zero, and Persona 4.

Feel free to bump or comment this thread if you watch this episode in the future. I don't mind, and I will respond back because it's my role.
