    Sket Dan 

Yusuke "Bossun" Fujisaki

The founder and leader of the Sket-dan, nicknamed Bossun. When he puts on his goggles he is able to be in full concentration and saves the day. When talking about his special traits, the Sket-dan tends to break the fourth wall, saying how he has nothing unique for a shounen main character. He is an amazing artist and has a bunch of expressions that are easy to read. Sasuke is his twin brother.

Hime "Himeko" Onizuka

Himeko is the violent "yanki"-girl with a soft spot for cute things. She is the fighter/brawn to the Sket-Dan. In her past she was called the "Legendary Delinquent Onihime" which became a symbol of "power and fear". Himeko seems to now have "calmed down" and leaving behind her days of being the Onihime and has become the second-chief to the Sket-Dan.

Kazuyoshi "Switch" Usui

Switch is the brains and secretary to the Sket-Dan. He is an otaku (no matter how many times he denies it) that has information about EVERYONE in Kaimei High. Switch appears to be the most serious of the group, but his fooling around says otherwise. Switch is tech-savvy to an extreme: his scientific bent puts him at odds with Yuuki Reiko, the devout occultist. Mysteriously, he prefers not to speak, instead communicating via a text-to-speech synthesizer in his laptop. Perhaps there is a hidden side to this eccentric young man...

Voiced by: Tomokazu Sugita, Aki Kanada (young)

  • A-Team Firing: Has zero accuracy.
  • Actor Allusion: His favorite Vizard is Kensei, according to the anime.
  • Agent Scully
  • Badass Normal: He has occasionally shown proficiency in easily taking down people who pose a threat.
  • Bishōnen
  • Celibate Hero: After his beloved childhood friend Sawa moved away because of his brother's death, he decided to never fall in love again.
  • Chick Magnet: Switch is pretty popular (for such a consummate weirdo). Since enrolling at Kaimei, he's never ended a Valentine's Day empty-handed.
  • Childhood Friend Romance: He had a crush on his childhood friend, Sawa and she liked him back, and they did confessed their feelings for each other... unfortunately after his brother's death and exactly the day she moved away because of the same event.
  • Crazy-Prepared: Usually with a remarkably impractical invention.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: His little brother died because of a false statement he believed and said to him. He became a shut-in not so much after that because of the guilt trip it made him fall into. Bossun was the one who saved him.
    • Since Switch On covers more on his past, there are certain things that he may not be so proud to had done (he whole hidden site incident and the Death Fights he managed to get other former delinquents to get on), especially as a result of the whole guilt trip that he had as a shut-in.
  • Gadgeteer Genius: To a degree.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: Towards his brother in his backstory.
    • Tragically deconstructed. Because of his jealousy over Masafumi and Sawa's friendship he caused a misunderstanding that led to his brother being killed.
  • Hikikomori: He was this before joining the Sket Dan.
  • I Let Gwen Stacy Die: He blames himself of Masafumi's death.
  • Important Haircut: His old hairstyle was much longer and his bangs were different... of course, he decided to change it because he wanted to let the image of his brother to be present in him.
  • Large Ham: The default voice on his laptop. It's mostly also because of him.
  • Loner-Turned-Friend: In his backstory.
  • Megane
  • My Sibling Will Live Through Me: It was like that at the beginning, straightly, but after the events of 'Switch On', he replies that he just wants to resemble Masafumi if only just for a little time longer, because he knows that being a Replacement Goldfish for him is full nonsense.
  • Nerds Are Sexy
  • Non-Action Guy: Pretty athletic when the situation calls (especially playing Genesis), but he prefers to stand in the sidelines. This mostly annoys both Himeko and Bossun sometimes, because he is practically useless in certain situations when it is raining, and also just because he knows that they are the most assertive action guys.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname
  • Otaku
  • Phrase Catcher: "That's our Switch," after he uses an invention or information gathering skill to help.

  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Blue to Himeko's Red.
  • Scary Shiny Glasses
  • Science VS Magic: The Science to Reiko's Supernatural.
  • Shipper on Deck: For Bossun and Himeko. And it seems he has been since the pretty beginning of the Sket Dan.
  • The Smart Guy
  • The Spock: To Bossun's Kirk and Himeko's McCoy.
  • The Stoic: His expression rarely changes despite what he types. He does not smile and sarcastically pointed it as it was 'too embarrassing to do so' the first few days he returned to classes. He can't permit himself to express 'emotion' other than surprise.
  • Stoic Spectacles
  • Tall, Dark and Handsome
  • The Voiceless: He communicates via text-to-speech with a laptop. The reason he still refuses to speak is because of his guilt over his brother's death...
  • Worthy Opponent: He enjoys an intellectual rivalry with Reiko.

Housuke

An African Collard Scops Owl that was found injured by Saaya. He now resides in the club room as a pet of the Sket Dan.

    Student Council 
The rivals of the Sket Dan, who uphold school rules and handle administrative duties, like the creation and funding of clubs. Within the Sket Dance world, there is a manga series about them, running in Shounen Jump, and a tie-in game on Vivage City, a cellular phone game company.

Soujirou Agata

President of the Student Council and a Third year student. A very charismatic, laid-back individual, who seemingly does nothing as President. He entrusts most responsibilities to the Vice President, Sasuke Tsubaki. His IQ is around 160. Agata's ability to read and understand people makes him a cunning manipulator when necessary; it's also why he has the complete loyalty of Student Council members Sasuke and Daisy. His performance in the Gachinko Vivage Battle's "Pixie Garden" match with Bossun shows that he is a good strategist, who learns quickly, and is adept at lying. Despite his ruthlessness, and professions that he isn't a nice guy, he's against cheating to win - though he has a tendency to forget things he's said. About the only thing he takes seriously is the protection of his little sister Saaya: the thought of her finding a boyfriend puts Agata into paroxysms.

Voiced by: Tomokazu Seki

Sasuke Tsubaki

The Hot-Blooded Vice President of the Student Council. Opinion among the student body is that Tsubaki takes his responsibilities way too seriously, refusing to tolerate even the slightest infractions in the name of making Kaimei a better school. He believes that the Sket-dan is useless and should be abolished, leading to conflicts with Bossun. The two consider each other rivals and his desire to defeat Bossun and the Sket-dan motivate him to do things he wouldn't otherwise do. He is a skilled fighter, and the boxing club at their school wanted him on their team. He also researches his opponents weaknesses and uses them to his advantage. He is Bossun's twin brother.

Kikuno "Daisy" Asahina

The Secretary of the Student Council, nicknamed "Daisy-chan." While obedient to Agata in her council duties, she has a vicious tongue and an overstock of Flowery Insults for most others. She has good aim and relentlessly attacks without hesitation. While Daisy seems calm and composed on the outside, she is quick to judge others, sometimes leading to fatal underestimations. She copes with failure poorly and takes solace in cuddling stuffed animals.

Voiced by: Aya Endo (Drama CD), Yuu Kobayashi (JP)

Michiru Shinba

A Student Council Member responsible for General Affairs, and a third-year Student. Later stepped down to focus the rest of his 3rd year term on college applications. Popular (and a bit of a dandy), Michiru loves having his picture taken; he has a devoted fangirl club called the "Shinbals". He is an extremely good chef, considered "exceptional even among professionals". Michiru often plays the straight man opposite the quirks of the other student council and is also one of the few people who understands Agata's manipulative side.

Voiced by: Kosuke Toriumi (Drama CD), Kenji Nojima (Anime)

Mimori Unyuu

The Treasurer of the Student Council. Later promoted to Vice-President after Tsubaki's ascension. She's the wealthy granddaughter of the Unyuu Group's leader. She is competent enough to know how to allocate hidden funds for the Student Council, but this is countered by her desires to spend frivolously. She believes money is a means to all ends, from love confessions to winning competitions. Despite this, she considers herself an advocate of proper conduct, and even lectures Tsubaki for his uncivilized actions. Outside of her financial duties, she provides refreshments and first aid supplies to the other Student Council members.

Voiced by: Atsuko Enomoto (Drama CD), Megumi Takamoto (Anime)

Hani Usami

A first year student who takes over as Treasurer after Minori moves up to Vice-President. Until she attended high school, she grew up in a family of mostly women and attended only all-girls schools. As a result, she developed a strange split personality. Normally a stoic and withdrawn girl who refuses to associate with men, Usami's flirtatious alter-ego "Bunny" emerges when a male touches her (and reverts with a touch from a female). Usami is a capable student, but her odd condition makes it difficult for her to connect with people.

Voiced by: Yuka Iguchi

  • Breast Expansion: Happens when Hani makes the conversion to Bunny. It's more pronounced in the anime, where her expanding breasts causes a button on her uniform to burst.
  • Does Not Like Men: Zig-Zagged and inverted. As "Usami" she refuses to even talk to males but as "Bunny", she throws herself all over guys but dislikes women. She gets better of this situation little by little, later.
  • Hair Decorations: Her bow. It changes position depending on which personality is in control.
  • Sexier Alter Ego
  • Split Personality

Kiri Katou

Taking over General Affairs after Michiru takes his leave from the council , Kiri is a descendant of ninjas, and often referred to as the last ninja. He doesn't like to take orders from people, and takes down bad guys with his own brand of justice.

Minoru 'Cherry' Sakura

A boy who despite his innocent appearance (and often could be mistaken by a girl) is a pervert and likes to guess about Kaimei's female students measures and other things about them with the disbanded Gesuling club.
  • All Boys Are Perverts
  • Chivalrous Pervert: It's the 'way of the gesu'. Cherry wouldn't lay a hand on a girl... but would say dirty jokes. And often imagines their measures.
  • Covert Pervert: At first sight you couldn't guess Cherry is one of them! Especially if you're in the Student Council!
  • Dirty Kid: The reason of why he started to be so gesu was because at 3rd grade, he found a bunch of erotic magazines in a storage room. It went down from there (though it's pretty normal?)...
  • Dude Looks Like a Lady: His innocent appearance could be a factor in all this... not to mention, his entire name could be also pretty misleading too (Minoru is also a name for girls).
  • Executive Meddling: Kenta Shinohara often avoids fanservice in his manga, however, as lampshaded by Roman herself in his introductory chapter, his editor by the time (Naoki Kawashima) behested him to create a pervert character because of the lack of 'fanservice' in it. Guess why the Sket Dan often lamphades that something is going to be wrong with the chapter when Cherry appears.
  • Meaningful Name: His nickname, Cherry, comes from 'cherry boy' a term that technically applies to a virgin.
  • Verbal Tic: Especially when he is in his pervert mode, gesu! (Also often he likes to say dirty jokes). Or when he is pretty nervous in front of a girl he likes.

Shinpei Takemitsu

The ''kouhai'' (to the Sket Dan) group of helping people in Kaimei High School. They have the same vision of helping people as the Sket Dan and they often try to replace them because they have better acceptation and much more requests. Though according to the rules of the high school, there shouldn't be two clubs with the same objective, the Student Council President Tsubaki accepted them because he hopes 'some day they will be doing a better job to help people with their abbilities' than the afformentioned Sket Dan.
