Manga Review: School Rumble


Title: School Rumble
Author: Kobayashi Jin
Release: Weekly
Status: Finished
Genre: Romance, Comedy, Slice of Life
Art: B
Originality: A
Story: C
Characters: S
Humor: S
Action: B

Impression: This is a story of a bunch of teens in love and the inane developments made from their various experiences concerning their love life. This is that gag manga with that infamous “Pie ending” so don’t keep your hopes up for a satisfying end. My guess is that the author was pressured to end it as soon as possible so the last two chapters felt like complete cop-outs after a series of really good character developing chapters. Every development that one of the main characters goes through seems to have been thrown out the window in the ending so fans felt absolutely betrayed by the conclusion. If you can bear with that then what’s remaining is a fun story with excellent characters with excellent character development and many over the top jokes based on misunderstandings and the quirks that the characters have. It’s really such a shame that it ended the way it did.
