To make things worse, she found out that Karasuma is transferring to another school in a year.

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

This review is for the entire School Rumble series.That includes both seasons and all of the OVAs. I don’t believe in dividing up series by seasons and I firmly believe series should be treated as a whole and therefore rated and reviewed, and judged in the same manner.

School Rumble is basically the story of a love triangle. The hyper, slow-witted, dense and yet extremely nice and lovable character Tsukamoto Tenma is in love with her strange and seemingly dull classmate Karasuma Oji and at the same time the misunderstood delinquent Harima Kenji is madly in love with Tsukamoto Tenma to the point that he has read more

School Rumble is one of the most wackiest but enjoyable and funniest anime I've ever seen. A pure school comedy-romance anime that had me smiling the entire time with it's hilarious jokes and animations of unrealistic character acts/facial expressions. If you want to just watch an anime that's not anything you have to pay attention to, but just sit back, and get a good laugh out of, then School Rumble is the perfect anime for you. No real plot. Just an episodic series that does build up the character's relationships throughout, but the show is purely comedy. What makes it better is that it doesn't read more

Hate watching those anime that drag on for too long with boring storylines? Then try School Rumble, each episode is totally random, even though it does try to follow a main storyline.

As the story goes on, it becomes more and more hilarious! I wished my high school was as fun as this. It portrays as guys being very pathetic and always going after girls, this makes them very funny to watch! The jokes are very humorous; some is just silly.

The animation is very beautiful, although it has more beautiful girls and the boys are all very weird. The read more

Ryuji Somehow reminds me of harima.. they are both looks like delinquent.. but they actually are sweet and kind..
they also have problems to confess their love to the person they like :P 
Both are hilarious and they are almost on the same line, only difference is that Ouran probably has more drama in it. 
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. 
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. 
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. 
for those that enjoy complex relationship charts
