SKET Dance Synopsis

The Kaimei Academy is full of eccentric people, students and teachers. One of the school’s many clubs is the “SKET Brigade”, officially known as the Life Assistance Club. The SKET Brigade consists of the somewhat idiotic Yuusuke “Bossun” Fujisaki, the gallant Hime “Himeko” Onizuka and the quiet but surprisingly popular Kazuyoshi “Switch” Usui and is dedicated to solving various problems on campus. However, the club rarely receives requests, so members spend most of their time dealing with trivial and random matters. SKET Dance is a hilarious comedy that is hilarious and moving at the same time, following the daily life of a strange trio of friends in high school.
