Very, very, very excited to hear this.
Sket Dance will be a great anime, and I'm glad the announcement is for an anime! I was a bit worried the announcement would be for another Drama CD, or maybe a live action drama. But anime is where it should be!
Anime! That is such great news. Sket Dance is one of the most consistently funny mangas out there at the moment. I wonder who's going to voice Switch...
Well if the vomic is any indication, odds are Switch is going to be voiced by Tomokazu Sugita who is better known as the voice of Kyon in The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya and of Gintoki in Gintama.
It'd be great if Tomokazu Sugita could reprise his role, but how often do the seiyuu for the anime actually follow the vomics? The only ones I can remember right now are:
Bakuman > Fukuyama Jun voiced Saikou in the vomics but in the anime he's voiced by Abe Atsushi
Mago > Kitamura Eri voiced Rikuo in the vomics but it's FukuJun in the anime, Hirota Shion voiced Kana in the vomics but it's Hirano Aya in the anime
Shiki > FukuJun voiced Yuuki Natsuno in the vomics but the anime had Uchiyama Kouki
Beelzebub > Konishi Katsuyuki as Oga
Mago > Horie Yui as Yuki Onna
... I don't know if it's just because I seem to only remember those that didn't follow @__@
Nonetheless I'm quite excited although I am way behind on this manga (I think I have over a year of backlog to catch up on!)
Didn't Fukuyama Jun also voice Rikuo in the vomic? Or was that just youkai Rikuo?
It took me while but here it is

For those who can't view the new trailer on the official site I uploaded it to youtube ~ Here
I am so psyched for the anime!
Pretty awesome trailer, I can definitely see potential here if they do the whole show like that.
I was re-reading Sket Dance to kill time when it suddenly dawned on me how awesome Chapter 88 will be when it's animated.
I mean Bossun looks like he's having a panic attack, and I don't blame him.
The opening and ending going to be sing by French Kiss (from AKB48) and The Pillows.
Sket Dance Episode 02 -->http://www.animefans.tv/downloads/stream/9241.html
After a long time of no posting, but checking the boards regularly, I'm back just for one reason
I checked the first episode of the anime, really liked it (even though it's not as good as what comes) and then read the manga in 4 days. It was amazing and the most hilarious stuff I'd read for a while.
But I find that it's not as popular as I'd like it to be. And is impossible to get in English or Spanish. I'd really like to have it. Well, that's how thing go, I believe. Still, I love the series, jumped right behind One Piece in my Jump listing.
