It’s been 10 years since the Sket Brigade opened its doors to help the students of Kaimei High School in the TV anime adaptation of Kenta Shinohara‘s Weekly Shonen Jump manga series SKET Dance. The official Twitter account for the anime series announced that to celebrate the anniversary, a new Blu-ray Box will be released in Japan in December, alongside a new visual released today.

The visual was drawn by anime series character designer Manabu Nakatake, who will also be drawing a new cover for the “Memorial Complete” Blu-ray set, which will contain every episode of the TV anime series as well as the EX special OVA, totaling 78 full anime episodes of SKET Dance. The set is scheduled to be released in Japan on December 24.
SKET Dance began airing on Japanese TV on April 7, 2011, and was broadcast all the way to September 27, 2012. Crunchyroll is streaming the series, which describes it as such:
At Kaimei High School, the Living Assistance Club (aka the Sket Brigade) was organized to help students with problems big or small. Most of the time, though, they hang out in their club room, bored, with only a few trivial problems floating in every once in a while. In spite of this, they still throw all their energy into solving these worries.
