    Anyone here watch Sket Dance? Well, it was created by one of Gintama assistants, the setting is basically the same but in a nowadays high school. The large and various set of characters is there and lot of random adventures too, it is easy to see that was inspired by Gintama. I think Gintama is really superior but Sket Dance already gave me lots of enjoyment.

    Since I love Gintama and that type of comedy, I've been planning to watch this one aswell.

    @[Shanks] I saw on your MAL that you put Sket Dance on on-hold. It didn't please you?

    It was rather entertaining actually but I'm planning to watch something else until I renew my Crunchyroll membership.

    Edit: Which I managed to do just a moment ago. Hah!

    Although, I must say that the humor ain't even close to Gintama so far. Not that I really want to compare those two.
    It's fun to hear Sugita & Co again though.

    I may give this a look... I need to watch Gintama first though. I have been meaning to watch it for some time now.

    I knew I had to see it once I found out that the author of this is a former assistant of Hideaki Soichi (Gintama).
    Edit*
    Damn, this is really good!
    :|D Almost to the point where I will have to wait weekly. :(]

    The few serious episodes are really good, Switch's past is one example.

    Although, it's quite disappointing that the funniest episode so far was the crossover with Gintama.

    I think it gets funnier along the way, now I wait for every episode with more excitement than in the frist 30 episodes or so. Right now I think the show turned funnier, but it went a little on romance too.

    But well, finally I have someone to discuss Switch past. Wasn't it so well done? That twist and all, it seems like one of those sad stories in Gintama, not in the same level but in the same track.

    Continue giving your feedback ;)

    It was really enjoyable and sad of course. It's not normal for me to watch more than 1-2 Sket Dance episodes a day but that one was just too good.

    I've heard the others pasts are quite similar, looking forward to it :)

    I got a little disappointed on the other pasts. Bossun is well done but didn't get near Switch's , Himeko disappointed a little, didn't see anything special, it was a little cliche. But when you see it we discuss it.

    The anime ended with todays episode.
    It was nice, had its ups and downs.

    Manga is still ongoing though.

    It ended, obviously there is still a lot more to adapt as the time will pass. I will wait for a new season to come, this is like Gintama, worth seeing in anime format, because of the great addictions.

    Yeah, pretty sure they'll come back sooner or later.

    I'll miss Switch though.
