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.

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 ...

This anime angered me enough to write this short review:
If you're looking for a romance anime don't even bother here. This is literally Blueballs the Anime. There was so much potential for a good ending yet they just keep letting this game of cat and mouse go on. Misunderstanding after misunderstanding. Was honestly a pain to sit through.
Story was pretty episodic but they still managed to have some story progress little by little. Isn't really that impressive either.
Art was normal for that year. Nothing fancy.
Sound could have been better. They re-use the soundtrack a lot but you won't notice it since it's pretty decent and ...

I have loved OURAN HOST CLUB and upon looking for another High School anime, I stumbled upon School Rumble. Well, at first look, it really did look like a nice enjoyable anime...

... but I was dead wrong. I'm sorry but it was really dreadful, and the fact that there was really no particular character development at the least. The story was in shambles.

After all those what happened, the conclusion was very ...
