This is just a simple prequel to the first School Rumble.

By the title School Rumble you know if you should watch or not. This is a prequel to School Rumble. It follows the crazy antics of Tenma, Yakumo, Harima and everyone else but mostly the first three. Honestly this anime is built on gags and there isn't really a story so I believe I'm grading the story based on the humor. The gags are somewhat funny. The best one being the Prehistoric Rumble gag. Otherwise, the rest of the OVA is....blargh. There really isn't much of the laugh-out-loud comedy that read more

These two OVA take place between the first and second season of School Rumble, and it's a compiled of short stories about certain things that were mentioned in the first season.

Now let's talk about it.

Warning----- SPOILERS BELOW------
The secondary character: This segment is a story about our favorite character, the greatest guy on the planet, Yoshidayama, the most interesting and badass character, right? well, not even close of it, I don't have anything against him but he has appeared in like 3 episodes of the first season so there's no emotion with him but Jokes aside, it's a pretty decent short-story, that gave us some good read more

I started out watching the School Rumble anime (English sub, I unfortunately don’t understand the Japanese language) and really just expected it to be what it appeared to be – a funny comedy anime. I was partially right about that, but also VERY wrong. School Rumble, on the surface, doesn’t seem very serious. But so many things underneath the surface of it are very serious and insightful and even deeply moving. Soon after starting the anime I was hooked, and almost immediately related to Harima Kenji and began cheering him on to accomplish his goal. Throughout the beginning and middle of the series we see read more

It was pretty long since I watched the original season so I can’t say for sure, but it feels like I have seen most of the sketches in this OVA already. Regardless, it is what you’d expect from School rumble; great but shallow comedy. Just watching this OVA by itself isn’t really much of an experience though, as the sketches are taken from different parts of the original continuity, making it hard to follow.

Graphics- and soundwise the OVA is identical to the series. That is: it does its job well. Giving a score in “Story” and “Characters” is rather pointless out of the context read more
