Just the words "I love you," and everything changes—such is the nature of the bittersweet trials of high school romance. Tenma Tsukamoto, a second year, is on a quest to confess her feelings to the boy she likes. Kenji Harima, a delinquent with a sizable reputation, is in a similar situation, as he cannot properly convey his feelings to the one he loves. Between school, friends, rivalries, and hobbies, these two will find that high school romance is no walk in the park, especially as misunderstandings further complicate their plight. School Rumble is a high-octane romantic comedy full of relatable situations, as Tenma and Kenji both try to win the hearts of those they desire.

Endlessly entertaining. More than once blindsided me with heartbreak or a perfectly executed mini love story


One of the “OG” school romcoms. Great watch, just know what you’re getting into with this genre.


Loved this from the first episode. Characters have personality and watching the relationships develop is a hilariously fun ride


Rarely outright hilarious, but it has its moments. Lacks a richness of character, or sharpness of wit to be consistently entertaining.


The best romantic comedy ever made.


One of the Funniest Anime I’ve ever seen!!!


A fun ride with great characters and great development.
