Synopsis

After the death of Saizou, Kabamaru's horribly strict grandfather and Iga ninja teacher (sensei), an old lady, Ran Ookubo, claims that she received a letter from him asking her to take care of his grandson. So Kabamaru runs off with Lady Ookubo to the big city Tokyo to gorge on yakisoba, ramen, chow mein, and attend a regular school—which turns out to have weird quirks of its own.

TEASER: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GCgTM_qqidg

Igano Kabamaru is the very first anime that ever aired on Greece in 1988 and it also happens to be the firs anime I ever watched. It is very known and loved here as well as in Saudi Arabia for three reasons:
a) Because it was the very first taste of anime humour we had around these parts
b) Because it was the most insane comedy we had ever seen in animation (and for some, it still is)
c) Because it had such a bad translation and voice dubbing read more

I am, and thousands of other people I met in my life, a big fan of this series. I might be a little biased since I come from a generation that grew up watching this but the truth is that the story, the characters and the soundtrack are still some of the best in the genre.

Story:

Kabamaru's story is a comedy from start to finish with laughs guaranteed at every episode. It is reminiscent of Ranma 1/2 in many ways but it has its own unique flavor. It has it all ninjas, school romance, comedy, impressive fights and did I mention ninjas. Without giving too much read more

Both are very funny/hilarious animes.
There is fighting in igano kabamaru,though it is not as epic as history strongest disciple kenichi.

They fight for the one they love or like. I would definitely recommend both these animes if you're looking for something to watch.

Anime: School Rumble
Humor from misunderstandings, bizarre fluctuations of physics, and cheesy character coloring? Fun characters despite the inability to take anyone (or anything) seriously for too long? Occasional doses of silly action and sweet hearty moments? 20 year difference and a sense of plot/conclusion notwithstanding, the laugh ratio is equally high for both.

Anime: Ranma ½
Martial arts comedy where a boy martial artist (Ranma practices an anything-goes style, while Kabamaru is a ninja descended from the Iga) is invited to live with a new family thanks to a parent/grandparent, but the new family's daughter/granddaughter doesn't get along with him.
