Just the words "I love you," and everything changes—such is the nature of the bittersweet trials of high school romance. Tenma Tsukamoto, a second year, is on a quest to confess her feelings to the boy she likes. Kenji Harima, a delinquent with a sizable reputation, is in a similar situation, as he cannot properly convey his feelings to the one he loves. Between school, friends, rivalries, and hobbies, these two will find that high school romance is no walk in the park, especially as misunderstandings further complicate their plight.

School Rumble is a high-octane romantic comedy full of relatable situations, as Tenma and Kenji both try to win the hearts of those they desire.

[Written by MAL Rewrite]


Based on the manga serialized in the Weekly Shonen Magazine, drawn by Jin Kobayashi.

Teen school life is a rumbling period of life and this premise is perfectly portrayed in the show, hence we got School Rumble.

Story slowly progresses and more characters with relevancy are introduced over time. Relationships between characters develop only slightly and are only of small focus; though the main delinquent hero, Harima, gets development throughout the whole show and befriends some classmates. From a notorious gangster, he actually turns out to be very fine guy to be around.

All the story progress and character interactions are nice, but not the priority of the show. The main selling point is comedy and funny gags. With only a ...

School rumble
It is a comedy / school anime, without a deep story that tells us the misadventures in comedy form of Harima Kenji who has a deep love for Tsukamoto Tenma that will lead him to do many things to declare that love, along with some of the stories of her girlfriends / friends always about love relationships.

Harima Kenji is a somewhat predictable and unremarkable character, he has an older sister who is a teacher at his institute, Harima tries hard for anything and it cannot be understood what he does even if he looks like a criminal, ...

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.

Some episodes left me dumbfounded on how random the events ...
