Ang School Rumble (スクールランブル Sukūru Ranburu?) ay isang seryeng mangang shōnen na isinulat at inilustra ni Jin Kobayashi sa bansang Hapon. Kinolekta ang lahat ng 345 na kabanata sa 22 tankōbon ng Kodansha na kung saan ay unang ininuran sa Weekly Shōnen Magazine mula 22 Oktubre 2002 hanggang 23 Hulyo 2008. Buwanan naman inililibag sa Shōnen Magazine Special ang School Rumble Z, mual 20 Agosto 2008 hanggang 20 Mayo 2009. Isang romasang komedya na nakasentro sa relasyon sa pagitan ng mga estudyante sa mataas na paaralan, nakatuon ang School Rumble sa tatsulok na pag-ibig na nagyayari sa serye ng dalawang protahonista na sina Kenji Harima at Tenma Tsukamoto, at isa sa kanilang mga kamag-aral na si Oji Karasuma. Binabale wala ng serye ang reyalismo upang mapataas pa lalo ang epekto ng komedya.

Dahil sa kasikatan ng School Rumble, nagresulta ito sa paggawa pa ng iba pang adapsiyon mula sa iba't ibang medya. Ipinalabas ng TV Tokyo ang 26 na episodyong programang anime sa pagitan ng Oktubre 2004 at Abril 2005. Noong Disyembre 2005, nailabas ang dalawahang bahaging orihinal na bidyong animasyon (OBA) na may pamagat na School Rumble: Extra Class. Ipinalabas na rin ang ikalawang pana-panahon na may pamagat na School Rumble: 2nd Semester, sa pagitan ng Abril at Setyembre 2006. At, dalawa pang episodyong pinamagatang School Rumble: Third Semester ang pinagsama sa Hapones na manga may bolyum na 21 at 22. Naglabas rin ng dalawang larong bidyo para sa PlayStation 2 noong Hulyo 2005 at Hulyo 2006, at isa para sa PlayStation Portable noong 2005. Nailathala naman ang dalawang magaang na nobela na isinulat ni Hiroko Tokita at inilarawan ni Jin Kobayashi noong Abril 2004 at Disyembre 2007; nailabas rin ang apat na opisyal na librong gabay na isinulat at inilarawan ni Jin Kobayashi.

Inilathala naman ng Del Rey Manga ang Ingles na pagsasalin ng School Rumble. sa salin, ipinatili ng Del Rey Manga ang tradisyonal na pagpapangalan ng mga Hapones[n 1] para ipreserba ang mga pun base sa pangalan ng mga tauhan. Naglathala rin ang Funimation Entertainment ng una at ikalawang anime nito at ang OBAng Extra Class sa Ingles. Naisalin na ang School Rumble sa karagdagang mga wika, kahit na ang huling dalawang episodyo, ang larong bidyo, at librong gabay ay ipapalabas pa lamang sa labas ng Hapon.

The manga was well received by Japanese-language readers; several volumes have appeared in the top manga sales charts. The North American English translations were less popular, but still ranked several times in the top 100 as well as ranking 145th for overall manga series sales in 2008. Critics of the English-language translation have been positive overall, praising Kobayashi for his art style and overall use of humor. However, the manga has received some criticism, mostly centered around some of the jokes and repetitive plot. The anime adaptation also sold well in Japan and was praised by Kobayashi and—for the English-language translation—critics. The decision by Media Factory to aggressively pursue its intellectual property rights for School Rumble is believed to have had a negative impact on the franchise's release and sales in the North American market.

Plot[baguhin]


School Rumble is a romantic comedy revolving around the daily lives of the students of Class 2-C at the fictional Yagami High School, as well as their friends and families. The main female protagonist is Tenma Tsukamoto, an unremarkable second-year high school student[1] who secretly admires her eccentric, enigmatic, nice-guy classmate, Oji Karasuma.[2] Tenma struggles to confess her feelings to Oji. He remains oblivious to her interest, instead seeking fulfillment by indulging in curry. The main male protagonist, delinquent Kenji Harima, similarly yearns for Tenma, attending school solely to be near her.[3] Like Tenma, Harima has difficulty declaring his love, and whenever he summons the courage to do so, circumstances conspire against him.[4]

Harima complicates the love triangle through constant bumbling, and misunderstandings among the students aggravate the situation. Harima becomes involved with Tenma's close friend, Eri Sawachika, after the pair are thrown together in mutually embarrassing situations. Later in the series, he develops a friendship with Tenma's younger sister, Yakumo Tsukamoto, who becomes Harima's assistant on a manga he writes. The plots of Harima's stories portray a Harima-like hero fighting to save a Tenma-like damsel in various historical or fantastical situations, usually in battle against an obvious facsimile of Karasuma. After the hero saves the heroine, she always falls in love with him. Yakumo's relationship with Harima causes problems with Class 2-C's student representative, Haruki Hanai, who has a crush on Yakumo, with the sisters' shared surname causing Harima and Hanai to misinterpret the object of each others' respective infatuations.[n 2] Although Harima manages to engineer romantic encounters with Tenma, her relationship with Karasuma nevertheless progresses, and Harima's bonds with Eri and Yakumo grow stronger. Eventually Tenma musters the courage to confess her love, but shortly after Karasuma loses his memory. His amnesia gives a purpose to Tenma's life; she concentrates on her studies to become a doctor and help Karasuma.

Although School Rumble focuses on Harima and Tenma, the series explores a number of supporting characters. These include Tenma's friends Mikoto Suo, who runs a kenpō dojo where her childhood friend, Hanai, trains, and Akira Takano, a mysterious and uncannily perceptive girl. As the story progresses, more major characters are introduced into the relationship web.

The series ends with Class 2-C's graduation ceremony. At this point most of the plot-lines are settled, but there is no clear resolution for the main protagonists. Karasuma still suffers from memory loss, and although Harima attends the ceremony with Eri, the status of his relationship with Yakumo is uncertain.[5]

Development and production[baguhin]

Jin Kobayashi began writing School Rumble, his debut work, in 2002.[n 3][6] He stated to an audience at Honolulu's 2006 Kawaii Kon convention that he started writing the series because he found the idea of a manga involving a delinquent falling in love interesting.[7][8] Kobayashi's favorite character, Kenji Harima, is based largely on an amalgam of various friends, although he estimates "about 30%" of Harima is a reflection of himself. However, despite putting most of his personal feelings into the female characters, he stated that Ryuuhei Suga, a minor supporting character, is the most autobiographical.[9][10] Most of the other characters are based on memories of former high-school classmates;[7] Kobayashi recalled that he had no real idea of their voices when drawing them, and it was not until much later, when he heard the voice actors' (seiyū) interpretations during the production of the anime series, that he knew how they should sound.[11] He acknowledged that some characters are more developed than others; in reply to a fan question about the mysterious Akira Takano, he admitted that, despite the closeness he feels for her, he did not put much emphasis on Takano and planned to develop her love-life slowly. Kobayashi intentionally centered his story arcs around misunderstandings which he then resolves, since he believes "if there's no misunderstanding then there's no funny story."[9] He claims that none of his stories are based on real-life events, although when pressed admits the possibility of some resemblances but without divulging specific details.[12]

Kobayashi and his editor collaborated on the plotlines. Kobayashi would then draw the basic illustrations for each chapter before passing his material to assistants to finish.[13] As the series' mangaka, Kobayashi also designed the cover art. Originally, the fifth volume's front cover was to feature Akira Takano, but after re-reading the volume Kobayashi concluded that since much of its plot in that volume revolves around Karen Ichijo, she should be on the cover instead. Desiring to feature a male character, he placed Harima on the cover of volume six.[14] Kobayashi designed a poster to commemorate the ending of the series with the final chapter of School Rumble Z.[15]

An anime adaption of the series was never envisaged by Kobayashi, and he was skeptical of the project when first approached. Negotiations and preparation took some time, but he claims to be happy with the end result.[16] On viewing the first anime footage, Kobayashi was astonished; he recalls in an interview his emotions at the time, stating "I was incredibly touched by it. Completely overcome."[17] Impressed with the adaptation of his work, he praises the anime staff for their achievement, although conceding that School Rumble probably lent itself to the anime format.[7][18] He cites the fishing episode, for which he supplied the voice acting for several minor parts, as his favorite.[n 4][19]

Kobayashi allowed the seiyū who voiced his characters significant freedom to interpret them as they chose.[20] There were a number of cast changes throughout the production; Ami Koshimizu, the seiyū for Tenma, had initially auditioned for the role of Yakumo,[21] and between School Rumble's first and second seasons the seiyū for both Karen Ichijou and Yoko Sasakura were replaced. Mako Sakurai took over Karen's role from Yuuka Nanri,[22] and Aya Hirano replaced Akiko Kurumado as Yoko.[23]

The artbox design for Funimation's North American release of the School Rumble anime resembles a miniature metal locker, and each of the individually released DVDs comes with heavy duty magnets. The discs include subtitled interviews with the Japanese seiyū,[24][25] which were compiled onto a third DVD for the full first season release.[26] In 2007, Funimation ran a drawing contest prior to releasing the anime in North America. The grand prize included a new computer with software for developing anime and manga.[27] The United Kingdom anime release by Revelation Films saw the same limited edition box as Funimation, along with two standard editions.[28]

Media[baguhin]

Manga[baguhin]


Jin Kobayashi wrote and illustrated both School Rumble and its sequel, School Rumble Z. Kodansha's Weekly Shōnen Magazine first published School Rumble in its 47th issue and serialized it from 2002–2008.[29] It further appeared in issues of Shōnen Magazine's Magazine Special ( マガジンSPECIAL?), and comprised one chapter of the seasonal Shōnen Magazine Wonder (少年マガジンワンダー?).[30][31] The collected works were released in Japan by Kodansha.[32] A sequel composed of side stories, entitled School Rumble Z, was produced from Agosto 2008 to Mayo 2009. Concluding the series, a compiled volume was released on 17 Hunyo 2009.[15][33]

As a guide to the contents of each chapter, musical notations were added before the chapter number. In School Rumble, chapters marked with a sharp sign (♯) concern the main plot development focusing around Tenma and Harima, while side stories dealing with supporting characters are indicated by a flat sign (♭).[34][35] The one exception to this pattern in the first series is the chapter that appears in Shōnen Magazine Wonder, which uses the natural sign (♮).[29][36] Because the sequel explores the general relationships of all the characters, School Rumble Z uses the natural sign for every chapter.[37] The manga volumes of School Rumble contain original bonus chapters that use no musical notation; these are normally one page in length,[38] but the seventh volume spreads its bonus chapter over several pages with each page telling a self-contained story.[39]

Del Rey Manga, in North America, and Tanoshimi in the United Kingdom licensed School Rumble for an English-language release.[34][40] It has also been translated into other languages,[41] although the German-language release which Tokyopop initially published was cancelled and later continued by Egmont Manga & Anime.[42][43] Del Rey released the first English-language volume on 28 Pebrero 2006,[44] and the latest—volume 12—on 28 Abril 2009.[45] Following Kondansha's lead, the Del Rey translation places the main plot chapters first followed by the side stories.[34][46] Del Rey also retained the Japanese naming order to preserve puns and humor involving the names of the characters.[47]

Anime[baguhin]

Silipin din: List of School Rumble episodes

TV Tokyo adapted the School Rumble manga for two 26-episode television sketch show series, and five additional episodes.[48] The first season was broadcast in Japan from 10 Oktubre 2004 to 29 Marso 2005,[49] followed by two original video animation (OVA) episodes entitled School Rumble: Extra Class (スクールランブルOVA一学期補習 School Rumble OVA Ichigakki Hoshū?), which were released on 22 Disyembre 2005.[50] The second season, School Rumble: 2nd Semester (スクールランブル二学期 School Rumble Nigakki?), ran from Abril 2 to 24 Setyembre 2006.[51]

Although a third series—School Rumble: Third Semester (スクールランブル三学期 School Rumble Sangakki?)[52]—was drawn up in the form of 24 episode synopses, the series was never animated.[53] Instead a two-episode mini-series was released as episodes 25 and 26 of School Rumble: Third Semester.[54] The first 24 episodes follow the manga's storyline between the end of School Rumble: 2nd Semester and the Third Semester mini-series;[53] the promotional videos of the mini-series on the anime's website instead of previews of a new season confirmed that the remaining 24 episodes would not be animated.[55] The School Rumble: Third Semester episodes were released with special editions of volumes 21 and 22 of the School Rumble manga, the first on Hulyo 17 and the second on 17 Setyembre 2008.[30][55]

School Rumble, School Rumble: 2nd Semester, and School Rumble: Extra Class were later licensed for an English-language audience by Funimation in North America,[56][57] Madman Entertainment in Australasia[58] and the first three volumes of season one by Revelation Films in the United Kingdom.[59] On 1 Setyembre 2009 Funimation re-released School Rumble: First Semester and Extra class as a compilation. 2nd Semester was re-released as an entire season with a new rating of TV MA.[60] The anime has also been released in other languages,[61] and Funimation have made several dubbed episodes of School Rumble and School Rumble: 2nd Semester available as streaming content on the Internet.[57][62] The Funimation Channel began airing School Rumble on 1 Setyembre 2008.[63] The 2008's Future Film Festival in Bologna, Italy screened School Rumble: 2nd Semester.[64]

The anime's first season focuses on Harima, Karasuma, and Tenma, and Harima's relationships with other females including Sawachika and Yakumo. Its second season involves more of the secondary cast. The Extra Class OVAs are compiled from various first season storylines. Both the Third Semester synopses and episodes return to the main cast. The anime's structure has been compared to Azumanga Daioh, with thematic influences from Full Metal Panic? Fumoffu.[65] In places it makes deliberate use of unconventional nomenclature; the title of episode 25 of season one is a set of pictograms,[66] while episode 26's title has 187 characters in the Japanese original.[67] In season two, the Japanese title for episode 26 consists of just a period.[68]

A bike chase in which Harima is chasing Tenma, who is chasing Karasuma at high speed, eventually passing Initial D's Trueno. Scene from the first episode of the first season.

The narrative of the School Rumble anime is designed to mirror that of the manga, which results in multiple short story segments with no significant connection. Shown from the perspective of its characters—notably Tenma and Harima as they attempt similar ploys to get their crush to notice their affection[69]—the anime uses absurdist humor which often combines elements of popular culture to explore the love-triangle, with jokes that work on multiple levels. One such example, highlighted by Lisa Marie, reviewer for Anime Today, is the bike chase scene in episode 1 of season one. She notes that while anyone can appreciate the chase's inherent humor, those familiar with Initial D will find another level of appreciation that nevertheless does not interfere with viewers who do not catch the deeper reference. Lisa Marie comments "I certainly admit watching an insane bike chase cross paths with Initial D's famous 86 has a bit more cachet when you know why there's a cheesily rendered race car in slow moving Eurobeat."[70]

Music[baguhin]


Two anime soundtracks and five maxi single albums based on the anime's opening and closing themes have been released, with all but the second season's closing theme having both a regular and limited edition.[71] In addition, three two-disc drama CDs and three radio dramas have been released on CD.[72] Eight image albums—one for each of the main characters—have also been released, in both a regular and limited edition run.[73]

On 5 Disyembre 2004, Yokohama BLITZ held a concert entitled come! come! well-come Party (スクールランブル プレゼンツ?), featuring the seiyū cast of School Rumble. The event was released on DVD on 24 Marso 2005.[74] Announced around the time of the Japanese release of volume 15,[75] from Hulyo 21 through 25 Hulyo 2005 a stage play called School Rumble Super Oshibai School Rumble – Osarusan dayo Harima-kun! - (School Rumble スーパーお芝居スクールランブル 〜お猿さんだよ、播磨くん!〜?) recapping Season 1 of School Rumble was performed. It was released on DVD on 10 Oktubre 2005.[76] Unicorn Table, the soundtrack artists for School Rumble, performed songs from the anime from Disyembre 7–9, 2007 at the New York Anime Festival, and again on 26 Abril 2008 at the Rochester Institute of Technology in Rochester, New York for the Tora-Con anime convention.[77]

Padron:VG reviews Three video games based on School Rumble have been developed and released in Japan. Marvelous Entertainment published the first game for the PlayStation 2 entitled 'School Rumble: Work-out Girl Raising' (スクールランブル ねる娘は育つ ?, School Rumble: Neru Ko wa Sodatsu) on 21 Hulyo 2005.[78] It was later reissued on 10 Agosto 2006, as a "Best Collection" budget release.[79] The Japanese video game magazine Famitsū awarded the game a composite score of 6.8 out of a possible 8.0.[80] Marvelous Entertainment released a second game, entitled 'School Rumble: 2nd Semester – Summer Training Camp (of fear?)!! Ghost's Appearing in the Western-styled Building!? Fighting Over the Treasure!!!' (スクールランブル二学期 恐怖の(?)夏合宿! 洋館に幽霊現る!? お宝を巡って真っ向勝負!!!の巻 ?School Rumble Ni-Gakki Kyōfu no (?) Natsugasshuku! Yōkan ni Yūrei Arawaru!? Otakara wo Megutte Makkō Shōbu!!! No Maki) on 20 Hulyo 2006, also for the PlayStation 2.[81] The story revolves around the School Rumble cast hearing a rumor of treasure hidden within a mansion. Two versions were produced; a regular and a limited edition, the latter of which included a drama CD, memorial album, and a special box with variant cover art.[82] On 28 Hunyo 2007, this game was also re-released as a "Best Collection".[83] 'School Rumble: Case of the Older Sister' (スクールランブル 姉さん事件です! ?School Rumble: Nēsan Jiken Desu!), published on 7 Hulyo 2005 for the PlayStation Portable by Bandai.[84] It has an original story based around Karasuma suffering a sudden collapse. Although the story centers on Tenma, the player can take the perspective of other characters to obtain clues for solving the mystery.[85]

School Rumble has been the basis of two light novels and four guidebooks. The light novels, School Rumble: Koi, Shirisomeshi koro ni (スクールランブル〜恋、知りそめし頃に〜?) and School Rumble: Me wa Megalodon no Me (スクールランブル〜メはメ ガ ロドンのメ〜?), were written by Hiroko Tokita and illustrated by Jin Kobayashi and published in Abril 2004 and Disyembre 2007 respectively.[86] They were later translated by Tong Li Comics into Traditional Chinese.[87] Jin Kobayashi also wrote and illustrated four official guidebooks for the series: School Rumble: Private File,[88] School Rumble: Official File,[89] School Rumble: Pleasure File,[90] and School Rumble: Treasure File.[91]

School Rumble has spawned lots of merchandise featuring its characters, including T-shirts[92] and figurines.[93]

Fansub controversy[baguhin]

In 2004, School Rumble's Japanese license holder, Media Factory, declared its titles off-limits to fan-made subtitled translations—a practice known as fansubbing.[94] The directory website AnimeSuki later removed all links to fansubs of Media Factory's work in response to a cease-and-desist notice issued by the license holder.[95][96] Media Factory-owned anime has been the subject of debate over the validity of fansubbing practice.[97] Proponents believe School Rumble would have more quickly received an English license had fansubs been allowed to circulate and generate viewer interest.[94]

Sales[baguhin]

The School Rumble manga had a successful sales run in Japan and the North American English market. In Japan, several volumes managed to chart: Volume 13 was the ninth best-selling manga for the week of 21 Hunyo 2006, before falling to tenth the following week;[98] Volume 15 reached 4th place for the week of Disyembre 20, also falling to 10th the following week;[99] and Volume 17 came 7th for the week of 20 Hunyo 2007, subsequently dropping to 9th.[100] Its sequel, School Rumble Z, ranked 18th for the week of 15 Hunyo 2009.[101] Del Rey's North American translation sold well, although not quite as well as in Japan. Volume 3 was ranked 99th in Setyembre 2006;[102] volume 4 was 96th in December;,[103] volume 5 was 98th in Abril 2007;[104] volume 12 was 141st in Nobyembre 2008;[105] and volume 12 was 169th in Mayo 2009.[106] Overall the series ranked as the 145th best-selling English translated manga series for 2008.[107]

Similarly, the anime adaptation of School Rumble also sold very well in Japan according to the Oricon charts. The Japanese DVD release of First Semester saw fluctuating sales for each volume with each charting within the top 45.[108] Volumes 1 and 5 have the best showings at five times at 15 and twice at 17 respectively,[109] while the final three volumes (7 through 9) were the least successful with volume 8 being the lowest ranking twice at 45.[110] While the 2nd Semester' 'continued to sell well, overall sales did not chart as well as the previous season. Most of the DVDs ranked in the a range from 50s to 70s and all of them ranked just twice.[111] Volume 1 ranked the best at 41, followed by volume 4 at 49; volume 6 ranked lowest at 100.[112] The Extra Class OVA also ranked once at 66.[113]

The DVD of the seiyu's live performance, come! come! well-come Party, ranked once at 177 on Oricon charts.[114]

Reception[baguhin]

Manga series[baguhin]

Although generally well-received, the manga has also attracted some criticism. Eduardo M. Chavez, of Mania.com, recalls being initially put off by the title, which for him conjured images of battles more physical than emotional. After glancing through the first volume, he was surprised to find his assumption wrong, and concluded that it was appropriately named. While he gives a largely positive review, Chavez finds the series' artwork "simple" and unimpressive.[115] He notes that the first volume becomes slightly repetitive, so praises the way that Kobayashi introduces new themes to the second, bringing variety to the setting. Remarking on Kobayashi's ability to draw on numerous influences, Chavez applauds the mangaka for finding fresh ways of using old themes, preventing School Rumble from becoming derivative. He reserves his highest praise for the "flat" chapters dealing with Yakumo.[116] In the next two volumes Chavez approves of the mixture of comedy and romance and the way the characters "grow up", although acknowledging that while the manga's style suits his personal preferences it will not be to everyone's taste.[117]

Sakura Eries, also of Mania.com, gave volumes five, six, and eight to eleven positive ratings overall.[118][119][120] She noted that volume five may appeal to readers more interested in the side characters, and that appreciating Kobayashi's humor in the second half of chapter eight "requires a bit more mental effort".[121] In volume ten, she remarks that while Kobayashi borrows the oft-used cliché of a disastrous school play, he manages to add enough twists to make it unique. The play's climax, however, confused her more than it amused her.[122]

Carlo Santos, of Anime News Network, gave the English releases of volumes two, three, four, and seven mixed—but largely favorable—B-range reviews. Volume nine he awards a C rating. He approved of the character of Harima, particularly enjoying jokes comparing him to St. Francis of Assisi. Santos found the bonus chapters in volumes three and four, that deal with Yakumo, touching.[35][123] On the other hand, he criticizes various aspects of the artwork and, by volume seven, laments the staleness of recycled jokes.[124][123] Despite volume nine's strong start, by its end he relates that, although there were some funny moments, he had become weary of its repetitive plot.[125] A fellow reviewer from Anime News Network, Carl Kimlinger, decided after reviewing four volumes that while the early volumes do not assist plot development, neither do they detract from the manga's appeal; he too had a positive impression overall.[126] Kimlinger found the later volumes better and more entertaining, although not always during the romantic moments.[127]

Chavez praised Del Rey's translation for retaining the manga's original identity; the header, bumper artwork, character biographies, and front covers are all but identical to the Japanese.[115] Eries also thanked Del Rey's translation notes for clearing up some misconceptions for her,[118] although she later concluded that their quality has deteriorated as the series progresses.[120][122]

Anime series[baguhin]

Like the manga, the anime has been well received but does not avoid criticism; in particular the quality of the animation for both seasons, including the OVAs, has attracted mixed reviews. Some of the humor and romantic elements have been derided while the English dubbing and soundtrack have been universally praised. Most reviewers took the position that, even if they dislike certain elements, the series as a whole contains something that makes them want to see more; a view summed up by Chris Beveridge of Mania.com, who writes:

The stories are really quite simple as well as being things we've seen done dozens of times before. Yet it manages to infuse it with a great deal of fun and humor even if it is familiar. There's a certain energy here that works in the shows [sic] favor as well as bringing in some different elements in terms of the characters. It also doesn't hurt that several of the characters really are quite dim which is a nice contrast from the usual kind of leads.[128]

Beveridge cautioned that because the anime was designed around the non-linear format of the manga, its transitions might at first be troublesome for the viewer,[69] but by the final volume finds the anime in all its aspects far superior.[129]

While School Rumble is generally recognised as a shōnen title targeting the young male market, Katherine Luther, staff reviewer for About.com, refers to it as a shōjo title aimed at girls and young women.[130] Lisa Marie, reviewer for RightStuf's Anime Today podcast, agrees that others, notably males, might see the series as shōjo.[131] Luther calls the first DVD "the perfect back-to-school accessory",[130] while Marie characterizes School Rumble as "insane", asserting it appears on the surface more laid back than other titles like Excel Saga and Haré + Guu. However, it uses its "cast to break[...]every rule of reality, but it plays everything so straight [that] it takes you a moment to realize what just happened doesn't make any sense."[132] A fan of the sub-genre, she praises the anime it for its surreal humour,[133] and for being "anime newbie friendly" in that its jokes work on multiple levels. Not all are of Japanese origin—such as a reference to the long triangular resolution of Star Wars: Return of the Jedi—giving the series broad appeal.[134]

Anime News Network's reviewers found much to enjoy about the first series, although Theron Martin warns that the first DVD should be "watched in small doses, as trying to tackle too much of it in one sitting will elevate the suicide rate of your brain cells".[25] Carl Kimlinger comments that "from the moment the words 'School Rumble' come spinning onto the screen, you know you're in for ... undiluted good times",[135] and that the title is "two of the greatest animation non-sequiturs you're likely to see anytime soon".[136] Carlo Santos praises volume six's bizarre comedy, but laments its romantic elements as being too generic. Overall, his rating is mediocre, saying that "although this disc technically marks the end of [the first season of] School Rumble, it's really more of a pause, seeing as how the last few episodes simply ride along with the plot rather than try to reach a dramatic finish".[137] Reviewers from Mania.com followed this pattern; Dani Moure was skeptical of the series' long-term entertainment value,[48] but like fellow reviewer Danielle Van Gorder, foundhis early indifference fading as the story develops.[138] IGN's Jeff Harris, N.S. Davidson, and David F. Smith gave mostly positive reviews, although Davidson believes the audio and extras had begun to wane by volume five.[139] Jakub Lhota of the Czechoslovak Anime E-Zine rated the first season a 8/10, stating that he enjoyed it more than some other anime series he had previously watched,[140] and the style—if not always the color[69]—of Funimation's metallic locker artbox for School Rumble's English translation of the first season was welcomed.[25]

According to Theron Martin, the OVA series School Rumble: Extra Class was made mostly for devoted fans; claiming that familiarity with the series is almost a necessity before watching it, although he later came to the view that it may also be useful as a sampler of the series.[141] Chris Beveridge gives the OVA series an overall negative review. He did not highlight a single specific reason, instead observing that although all elements that "make the TV series enjoyable are certainly present here, they just feel weaker". However, it did make him want to watch more of the television series, thus serving its intended purpose in keeping interest in the series alive.[142] Katherine Luther endorsed the view that viewers need to be familiar with the story, but reviewed the OVA positively. While she noted lulls in the action, she believes fans will be able to overlook this. Unlike Martin, Luther did not believe the OVA is a good introduction to School Rumble, due to its short sequences and seemingly random nature.[143]

Zac Bertschy of Anime News Network declined to post commentary on the preview announcement for the second season, claiming "we assume if you loved School Rumble, you're gonna check out the sequel regardless of what anyone says, so why bother reviewing it?"[144] David F. Smith from IGN gave the first part of season two a rating of 6/10, with lower scores for the Funimation extras and higher ones for the plot and story.[145] Specifically, Smith praised the anime for never taking itself seriously, and the studio for not cutting its budget for sight gags—something he notes that other companies do.[146] Tim Jones from THEM Anime Reviews found the second season funny and nonrepetitive,[147] and Bamboo Dong of Anime News Network praised the second season for not conforming to the conventions of reality. He complimented it for focusing more on the other students and their relationships than on the main love triangle.[148] Chris Beveridge claimed that, although it comes across well, the season should not be watched in a marathon sitting.[149][150] He was more critical of Funimation's packaging, preferring the first season's metal locker boxart to the packing for the half-season sets.[149]

Notes[baguhin]

  1. Sa Hapon, nauuna ang apelyido bago ang bigay na pangalan. Tradisyonal na walang gitnang pangalan ang mga Hapones.
  2. Japanese often address each other by their surname unless they are in a close relationship, such as with a long time friend, relative, or spouse.
  3. In an interview with Kaori Shimizu, Jin Kobayashi notes he started writing School Rumble four years previously. The first book was released in 2002, and the interview was taped around the time of the release of the Japanese volume 15 (although not released until 2007 on Japanese DVD).
  4. The episode is 25 of School Rumble: First Semester. The interview took place before the final two episodes in Third Semester were produced.
