The nostalgia: School Rumble

Konnichiwa~

For those who know this, you really have a deep history in anime.

What is this?

Its from a manga, which started back in 2002, but it ended in 2008. The anime had 2 seasons and 2 OVAs, all of them are good. Its not your typical RomCom, Slice of Life manga or anime, its really has a very deep meaning in it. I genuinely enjoyed it, no matter how many you rewatch it, its still damn funny. To prevent spoilers, I will not leak any details about this, you guys need to read and watch it.

Review?

Damn, i dunno where to start this. I read the manga too so imma split this into 2 parts

For the manga:

The more complete ver of the entire series, need a lot of time to read this. After finishing this, read School Rumble Z, its somewhat a sequel and properly ends the entire series. READ IT

For the anime:

When i watched the first ep back in 2007, i was shocked by the comedy it has and decided to watch this till the end. I can remember how happy i was when there is a 2nd season, damn i was over the moon. Storyline is epic, it follows the manga closely, which i like, making the entire series a laugh till you die kind of feeling. Music wise, is like a near masterpiece, the BGMs, all the OPs and EDs, all are awesome. I like OP2 the most.

it makes the anime a lot lighthearted, like A LOT. Damn. The MV is funny haha.

VAs, damn, a lot of VAs i love in this anime, Koshimizu Ami, Horie Yui, Noto Mamiko, Nabatame Hitomi, Kobayashi Yuu, Fukui Yukari, Ise Mariya… But the best? i would choose… all of them tbh, cant pick one, all of them did a terrific job at this, i have literally no complains whatsoever. Art? Made by Studio Comet and judging from its age, its pretty decent already. All the characters are pretty much lovable but if using the current animation techniques, it would be so much better.

This series has a pretty fucked up love web. He likes her but she likes him then ended up like him instead. Damn, its a mess but i like it, keeps the love chase fresh.

Besto gurl?

A lot of them, nearly all the girls are lovable. Tenma, Yakumo, Eri, Mikoto, Karen, Sara, Tae… damn. I also have a besto guy(s) for this one too, i literally worship them. Hanai Haruki and Harima Kenji

Damn the 2 of them, i worship them.

Any disappointments?

yes, the “3rd season” or should i say the 2nd OVA of the series, it was named “San Gakki” but it only has 2 eps and its the adaptation final few chapters of the manga. They should have made a proper 26 ep 3rd season, adapting everything they left off after season 2. It was a regret they didnt do it, it would have been the most perfect whole manga-to-anime adaptation ever. But nonetheless, i teared up at the ending, the feels just comes to you.

Score:

Manga:

Story: 9.5/10

Art: 9/10

Story: 9/10 (S1), 8.5/10 (OVA1), 9.5/10 (S2), 9/10 (OVA2)
