Tsukamoto Tenma is an ordinary 2nd year high school student who has fallen in love with one of her classmates, Karasuma Ooji. However, currently she is unable to confess her feelings to him. To make things worse, she found out that Karasuma is transferring to another school in a year. On the other hand, Tenma's other classmate, Harima Kenji (who is a delinquent) is also in love with Tenma. Not being able to confess his feelings, Harima gets depressed day by day.

School Rumble is a romantic comedy that you should watch if you don't want to pay attention to any plot details or you just in it for a good laugh. Meaning school rumble is a show that has virtually no main plot and gets nowhere in 26 episodes.

Now i did say that there was not plot but that doesn't mean that the show does nothing but corny humor for the entire 26 episodes(even though its all it really needs to do for the genre). They introduce a variety of characters throughout and give them most at least some back story, character development, and even some read more

School Rumble very well may be the finest anime comedy ever produced. The brilliance of mangaka Jin Kobayashi isn't in the plot or themes of this story, but instead in the incredible strength of the ensemble cast of characters. School Rumble is one of the few animes that features not just an array of beautiful young girls, but also a supporting cast of male characters, all of whom are incredibly likable and funny.

The situations and set-ups border on rehashing tired old rom-com tropes, but even if we know that the entire series is going to center around a series of unfortunate mistakes and misunderstandings, read more

I like the concept which school life with friends and the struggle of love, and Harima fun days with his principle..
That so fun, i can imagine that!

I dont really like this story...
This anime had good concept but throwing all with too much harem romance...
And that Tenma girl trolling complicated story.. *fiuuhh

I think this anime have to add new harem genre over there.

I tried! I TRIED!!!!!!!

I tried to like this anime but I really couldn't, I tried to laugh I couldn't,

I love romance/comedies but school rumble was just to zany and random for me.Even though I finished the first season I felt like I was forcing myself to watch it from the beginning. The plot goes no where and I know that's not the main purpose THE MAIN PURPOSE IS TO LUAGH but I never got one good chuckle from my self and it came to a point where I was trying to force myself to laugh.

Some episodes left me dumbfounded on how random the events read more

Anime: Ouran Koukou Host Club
Both are hilarious and they are almost on the same line, only difference is that Ouran probably has more drama in it.

Anime: Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu
Having a crazy school life? Well... it can't possibly be as crazy as the lives of any of the students in either one of these Anime. That's part of the charm of these anime.

Anime: Azumanga Daioh
Both are high school comedy anime. Azumanga Daioh is a bit more wacky and random, and School Rumble has more story (just a little), but if you like one, you should also like the other.

Anime: Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun
There are some similarities between these two animes:
- Same type of humour with the heroine and hero being involved in ridiculous random situations.
- One of the protagonists is completely oblivious of the feelings of the heroine.
- One of the protagonists is a mangaka.
- Extremely fun scenes involving bikes.
- One character that appears to be a rebel/deliquent but has a sensible side.
Personally I prefer GSNK because it makes fun about all shoujo stereotypes, but both are really fun so you will enjoy one if you liked the other!

Anime: Full Metal Panic? Fumoffu
Two of the funniest anime in existence. And, perhaps coincidentally, the only two anime that spring to mind where the 'half-episode' mark often meant a different short story/chapter. You know how those other unfunny anime drag-on for the full episode run-time... despite being unfunny? These two don't. Clearly, 10-minutes is the best for animated comedy silliness.
