Yeah, I've found some of those, but they're big files and I don't really need to read most of the other series ^^;;

Chapter 189's out!!
Honestly, I didn't think Agata would refer back to the salt a couple chapters back. And the (re)appearance of Sasuko and Kiriko!
Sojiro Agata, IQ 160.
Sojiro Agata + little sister complex, IQ 16.0
Am I the only one slightly disappointed that he has been relegated to this position?
Chapter 190 is utterly stupid but it made me laugh anyway....
But the chapter end makes me fear that there will be a sequel
For some reason, Tsubaki is an esper who can teleport.
I'm glad that finally "misunderstood love" arc is ended. Maybe it's just me, but honestly I wish the arc has two chapters more for the conclusion. The second chapter was fun, especially during the teleport Tsubaki scene
Now we're just left behind by 35 chapters.
I agree with Switch, I also wonder how the voice actor will ad-lib that tune.
New chapter...a new school year.
I wonder how the series would continue after the Sket Dan graduates?
I think Sket Dan graduation is the deadline of the series.
Aww, now that just makes me sad. I'm hoping it continues past graduation. With Bossun becoming a P.I. like they said he probably would in the chapter where they discuss their futures. Introduce a Knight of Cerberus and make it like a non sci-fi version of Gintama.
Hi I'm new to this side of MH, just wandered in.
OMG it never actually struck me that it's currently the guys' final year in Kaimei isn't it... That's...
Well yes, I can think of Genshiken, where the main characters graduated and the manga ended, but after a loong hiatus the mangaka decided to pick up where he left off, with the cast dealing with life after school, living independently, jobs, relationships...
...Hmm, after writing all that out, that kind of development might not be suitable for the Sket cast after all...
Or Shinohara-sensei could try to really develop (age) and follow his characters, a bit like the whole Shounan Jun'ai Gumi -> Bad Company -> GTO -> Shounan 14 Days, thing. That could keep the Sket Dance universe / serialization alive for about 20 years as well, lol!
Anyway, it's a bit depressing that the english scanlators are moving kinda slowly with Sket Dance, even though it's coming out every week(and quite popular in WSJ isn't it)... Chinese scans are fast but the humour just doesn't translate well at all (as so in Gintama) so I've been avoiding them as much as possible. But OH MAN the current arc involving

Recent scanned chapter ----- Poor Bossun, that Yubaba look-a-like really tore into him on live TV.
And yeah, a post-Kaimei Sket Dance is totally possible. I can imagine it, so if it doesn't happen, it is my duty as a professional screenwriter to create it:
Basically, he opens a private detective office, but can't bring himself to charge for help so he moonlights as Roman's assistant; hell he's so good at the creative stuff, maybe he ghost-writes a few of Momoka's songs.. Switch would be a part-timer because he plans to attend Tokyo U. Himeko sticks around because she's totally in love with Bossun. They occasionally help out the Pocket-Dan who at that point would have become Kaimei's new Sket-Dan. In his pursuit of helping people he gains an Izaya-esque nihilistic nemesis whose complete and utter diametric opposition to Bossun and his philosophy forces him to take a level in badass! Also, the Sket Dan would be forced to face the fact that real Japanese society is much more stuffy and rigid than their little school.
If this doesn't happen..."Copyright Donna Noble, add it to the list."

I think as long as Sket Dance is running, there will be no graduation for Bossun and co. I also support the idea of Sket Dance sequel even though that path maybe overused, but I just can't get enough the drama and randomness of Sket Dance. Is the Chinese scanlation keep up with the Japanese release? If so, they're so lucky. Sket Dance's scanlation is getting left behind because IIRIC, the time gap between the current group and the previous scanlation group was quite far. Sket Dance was also not really known back then.
