Back in April this year in Weekly Shonen Jump Magazine, the Gintama and SKET Dance manga both featured crossover chapters with one another. It has been announced today that in what is without a doubt a rare occurence indeed, Sunrise anime studios and Tatsunoko Productions will band together to bring the crossover to the respective anime series of both Gintama and SKET Dance.
The Gintama episode airing on September 26th will feature various SKET Dance characters and the SKET Dance episode airing on September 29th will in turn feature various characters from Gintama.
It is well known that Kenta Shirohara (creator of SKET Dance) worked previously as an assistant for Hideaki Sorachi (creator of Gintama) and are both quite good friends. So this crossover came as little surprise to fans of these series. Be sure to check out the crossover episodes when they air.
