The manga focuses on the (mis)adventures of Kaimei High School's campus support club, the Sket Dan (Katakana: "スケット・ダン"; Kanji: "助人団"; Transliteration: "Suketto Dan"; Translation: "Helper's Club"; included English acronym: "SKET (Support, Kindness, Encouragement, and Troubleshoot)"). Dedicated to the general improvement of campus life, the Sket Dan is devoted to solving any & all problems submitted by the staff or student body. However, due to its general lack of meaningful assignments & the unglamorous reputation of being just a 'group of handymen', the Sket Dan is treated with widespread contempt and it is composed of only three members.
The story is told through a series of short, self-contained stories focusing on cases undertaken by the Sket Dan and is usually told in the space of one or two chapters. Cases to date focus on a variety of issues from more humorous cases (like chasing monkeys around the school or helping a wanna-be samurai find out why he cannot win kendo tournaments) to more serious cases (like those hinting at Himeko's violent past or those concerning near-terminal illness).
Characters from previous cases often make cameos in later cases and recurring story lines, such as the Sket Dan rivalry with the school's Student Council.
