And I can't believe I'm so behind on this series, it being one of my favourites in Jump ever since it first started. It might've actually been the first series that I've followed ever since chapter 1.
You should definitely catch up! Both in the scanlations and raws, it has never lost its appeal (for me anyway).
Poor Milky, but at least he managed one trick, I think... Was that disappearing act a real trick or Bossun simply running away when the producer's back was turned?
Either way, he should learn his lesson, this is the third time this has happened. Wonder what it'll be the next time Shinohara reuses the same plot.
So anyone knows when exactly the Switch ON arc is going to start? Just read the new scanlated chapter (Switch Alone) and thought it could be a prelude to what's coming next.
And as funny as the chapter was, I think it proves again how much Switch cares for Bossun and Himeko.
It's such a shame that Trinity can't get the manpower to release chapters more frequently =/
According to the wikia it starts with chapter 241

Yeah, Switch On should be coming in a couple of chapters. There's the usual chapter that comes before the arc, but I like the connections it makes to introduce the arc. Kind of like how Switch Off was done.
And two more chapters, 236 and 237, were released recently. I think we're getting back to more frequent releases now; we had some forum issues a while back that delayed some of our releases. But yeah, Switch On is coming! XD
We're finally getting to the SWITCH ON arc! I'm really excited to see how Bossun (who is not called Bossun yet) and Himeko will manage to coax Switch out of his shell.
It's jarring to see just how antisocial Switch was when he's seen interacting with many people in the present day. I'm glad he was able to find a place in the Sket Dan later on. Not only is this cyber bullying/secret webpage case a new beginning in life for him, it's probably the beginning of Switch's role as the information broker as well.
Even though this arc is supposed to be great, I feel like this flashback comes a bit out of nowhere.
It has barely started but I'm pretty excited for the Switch ON arc. Nothing all that special yet but I really am curious how Bossun and Himeko started to bond with Switch.

Some great chapters. I honestly didn't expect Switch to be the real culprit, it only came to me after Okuyama said he isn't the real admin.
I guess we're reaching the climax now, I really wonder how they will confront Switch and change his view so far it has been an excellent arc, really looking forward to the conclusion.
I'm less enthusiast than you so far the best point of the arc were the hints toward the formation of the club, the hidden website and death match didn't really appeal me. But we are only at the middle since there is still 5 other chapters so I guess the best part has yet to come.
I'm liking this second FB dedicated to Switch and now I'm even more curious to seewhoe Bossun got him out of his house.
I never expected Switch to be the culprit so this was unexpected for me. Hikikomori!Switch is darker and seems completely different from the present!Switch, which I guess is the point.
