The Sketchbook Project is an aspect of the anime series' official website which is based around the Kaimei Rock Festival chapters.
Project 1: Producer Battle
Aside from The Pillows' song Funny Bunny, the Sket Dan are looking to include another song for the Kaimei Rock Festival. However, each member has a different idea of what to do and ultimately, visitors to the website will be able to vote for which they want to see appear in the anime. The "battle" between the three is shown through a series of short live-action "episodes" on the website, where the Sket Dan members are all represented by hand puppets in their likenesses.
