School Rumble
Volume 1


Second-year student Tsukamoto Tenma learns that her secret crush, Karasuma Oji, will be transferring to a school in America. In a last-ditch effort to reveal her love to him, she writes a long (but anonymous) love letter. When Karasuma ends up postponing his transfer for another year, Tenma realizes she has to tell him how she feels before time runs out again. But her extreme nervousness around him prompts her to try and set up all sorts of schemes to get close to him and let him know, without actually coming out and saying it. Meanwhile, unknown to Tenma, the school delinquent, Harima Kenji, has the biggest crush on her, as well as the same anxieties about being direct. Around this love triangle of clueless people are a few of Tenma's friends, and her younger (but older looking, more mature, and more popular) sister, Yakumo.

To start off, this is one of those manga that's mainly concentrated on comedy. Trust me, if you read this manga it'll make you laugh. Of course if you're one of those looking for romances this isn't a bad choice either. Don't be fooled. Even though there probably won't be a lot of romantic situations or development till chapter 50 or so, each chapter is 5-7 pages long not even half the length of a regular chapter of 18-20 pages.

Story : 7
There really isn't a set plot. It's mainly girl likes guy that shows no response to her feelings while another guy read more

School Rumble is mainly about Harima Kenji, Sawachika Eri, Tsukamoto Yakumo, and Tsukamoto Tenma. The story revolves mainly around these 4 characters and switches between these 4 characters and their point of view, giving a really random like manga.

Story: There is not really plot at all, it is more like a day to day, slice of life manga. So if you are looking for a somewhat decent plot, I would have to say that you shouldn't read this manga, BUT if you are looking for something random and somewhat funny, School Rumble would probably be one of your best bet. The story switches point read more

in all honesty, i have felt different emotions i never knew i had, thanks to this manga.
thus i am rightfully giving it a perfect score of 10/10. it is not biased in any manner. i just honestly think that this manga was masterfully made. it is genius and all aspects possible.

story 10/10
for a romantic comedy, school rumble presents a great deal of approach on love triangles, and not just one triangle, there are many. yet it does not derail from the main trio's life.

art 10/10 and character 10/10
the character art was very original. the character make-up are also complete, there are a lot of different 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
