Genesis World Grand Prix (ジェネシス・ワールド・グランプリ, Jenesisu waarudo guranpuri) is the 49th episode of the Sket Dance anime.


The Sket Dan + Chiaki go to Mpruin Chipesbu... Chipepe... er... a strange foreign country to play in the national Genesis tournament. Chiaki is new to the game, but manages to catch on quickly - especially when an all-you-can-eat buffet is named as a prize!


Yamanobe pays a visit to the Sket Dan and informs them about the Genesis World Grand Prix. Yamanobe talks about the fact that 16 countries are participating and that four generals spread the idea. To add on, the tournament is held in the kingdom of N'preenu Ch'p'p's'b every four years. (N'preenese is their language) Switch explains that he has asked for an invitation to the tournament. Yamanobe reminds Bossun and Hime about their training. Bossun reluctantly accepts the invitation while Hime states she would go with them, and Switch is cleaning the morning star. Hime asks Bossun to decide, and he gives them the green light. The Sket Dan crew get excited that they do a stance. However, Yamanobe realizes that they are short one teammate since he has to be their manager. They enlist the help of Chiaki who agrees to go since she loves sport and food. Sket Dan and Yamanobe arrive to the tournament and are awed by the number of people. The Wong brothers (from China) greet Yamanobe and gives them yagult. Then, the champions from East Qupi'il begin insulting the Wong Brothers and Sket Dan.

Before the games start, Prince Jenelope June share some words about his little sister getting married in Italy and random stuff. Yamanobe apologizes to Chiaki for dragging her here and that they didn't teach her about the rules. The prizes for the tournament include a lion brooch and a year supply of dried scallop-sparrow-snapper. Chiaki gets fired up about the food. One more thing occurs, Momoka makes an appearance and sings. Apparently, Switch plays a role in getting Momoka singing in the tournament. In the first match, Sket Dance is pitted agains the State of Wyoming. The Sket Dan do their war dance with Chiaki confused. During the game, Chiaki gets hit, and she gets more confused at the game when her team tells to do things. The blonde lady, Joanna MacDonald, starts laughing and insulting Chiaki and her team with some jargons such as Berry. A montage begins, and Chiaki gets into the spirit of Genesis. The gang beat team Wyoming. With the final round beginning, Chiaki becomes the leader of the team by changing the plans. The rest of the team follow her orders much to Bossun's disappointment. The game is over with team Sket Dance winning the tournament. The prince tries to get Chiaki to married him due to the brooch, but Chiaki refuses after she eats all of her banquet.
