The hilarious misadventures of the "Sket Dan"; a couple of high schoolers who help out people as part of their club activity: Himeko, the hot-headed ex-delinquent with a soft spot for cute things and a taste for strange food; Switch, the brainy otaku who only talks via a computerized speech-application; and Bossun, the atypical leader of this looney bunch, with the amazing power to... concentrate very hard!

Sket Dance won the 55th annual Shogakukan Manga Award in 2009 for best shounen manga.

Funny and Intersting

I read about 8 Volumes of it and its hilarious and intersting. This manga is kinda like Gintama since the author Kenta Shinohara once work for the Hideaki Sorachi. Not only is it funny it even had a sense of drama to balance it out. To see a sense of drama is nice for this manga. Also the Sket Dan members brings out their heroic side and hilarious side in this manga. Now I see why it got an award. anime, CD Drama, novel and etc. I would love to see more of Sket Dance in the future.

Oh if you bash it I bet it is because you haven't read it. I thought it looks lame but if you read it all the way in the end its funny and intersting. I say read all of it before you judge it.

well, everyone had different tastes, but bashing this manga just because you're a fan of Gintama and dont like it being compared that doesn't justify what you did.

evidence proof it that a lot of people like it, and i myself like this Sket Dance.

this is the Second manga other than Hajime no Ippo that can make me Laugh out Loud
which is very rare as i mentioned only Ippo and this manga that can make me LoL so hurd that my stomach hurt biggrin

and i'm sure as hell dont like that you say this manga is lame /piff

I really don't know what's so great about this. I've tried to read this twice now. At first I never got over chapter 2 or 3, at the second time I couldn't even finish chapter 2...
This manga is absolutely boring and to compare it to Gintama is an insult...Gintama is awesome, this is lame.
I will probably try it one more time in the future but I doubt it will get better.
I can't understand why this is popular...

We can say that it's a school life version of Gintama. It has the same setting as Gintama but of course it has its own style and story. In my opinion, I think it is not as good as other popular manga about high school problems. Anyway, we just need to lol, so this manga is ok.

This is like Gintama in a high school setting:
--We have three kids (2 boys, 1 girl) who form a club (the sket-dan), which takes on odd jobs for students and teachers around the school.
--The girl is crazy violent and skilled in fighting.
--One of the boy wears glasses. (A handsomer/cooler version of Shinpachi)
--The leader has curly hair.
--The sket-dan's rival group is the student council, which is kinda like the Shinsegumi in this manga.
--The std. council vice-president is arch-rival to our main character.
--The std. council secretary is a verbally abusive sadist.
--Heck, even the council president looks kinda like Kondo, except he's smarter.
--And throughout the manga, they either reference or do parodies of other shounen manga (bleach, naruto, one piece, etc.), kinda like... you guessed it! Gintama!

(If you read/watch Gintama at all, you'd understand the similarities I'm describing)

Anyway, if you like Gintama, chances are you're gonna find this manga pretty awesome. It's stupidly funny, refreshingly witty, and fun as all heck. Now I'm just waiting for someone to animate this so I can enjoy it on the big screen.

This manga is sooooo funny, mocking all the other shonen series. But i love how they make it so serious even when it looks so stupid. But the latest arc is pretty dark....

I totally love this manga!!! I find myself suffocating from laughing all the time XD
It has also a nice art and the characters are very likable and kind of original (just look at the guy speaking through a computer instead of his mouth... biggrin).

Personally I especially recommend chapter 14 from vol 2...sooooooooooo CUUUUUUUUUTEEE!!!!!!!!!! <3

This is one of those rare manga that actually has me laughing out loud. The characters are great, as is the art and especially the humor. This series has high potential, and I think it's too bad that it doesn't get all too much recognition. I have no idea why anyone would give it a low score.

I don't read much shounen manga. But this is so good. It fulfills its intentions perfectly: it's absolutely hilarious, makes fun of all the things I love and love-to-hate about manga (both shounen and shoujo cliches have their turns), and despite the heavy emphasis on humour it has enough thoughtfulness to make the characters seem real and interesting and sympathetic to the reader (rather than two-dimentional characters simply there to fill a role or carry out a gag). Gives me a big smile every time there's a new release biggrin
