Why I don’t like School Rumble that much anymore

To be entirely honest, I really like School Rumble and its sequels: I’ve even written about these in the past. Until now, it still shines with its slapstick comedy and its comedy of errors (and misunderstandings). It’s probably one of the best anime in its genre.

Among the reasons, however, why I personally didn’t classify this series and the subsequent series and OVAs borne from it as belonging to my top anime list was that it doesn’t have an end in sight, and will probably continue forever. This may be good to many, and I understand that want for a great series like this to run forever from its fans, but that’s just a deduction of its merits from my point of view. A good anime knows when to end, and I personally think that if they transcended (or went beyond) the third season, which is already being produced, by the way, I’d have to draw the line somewhere and stop, perhaps by the end of the third season. As much as One Piece is a good anime and manga, it needs to end – badly. (This is among the reasons why I love Honey and Clover in the first place: it definitely knew its timing: it knew when to start and it knew when to stop – with only 64 chapters, Umino Chika has made a very majestic bittersweet ending to the manga that has already run for five years. I’m assuming that unless H&C II does a complete 180, it will dominate this year’s anime [yes, Haruhi Suzumiya included].)

This is a serious post full of personal bias, but I’ve arrived at the point where Harima becomes irritating because he couldn’t even detect or perceive of the emotions Yakumo feels towards him. This isn’t just any regular lady, however: she is a great chef, a very stunningly beautiful student (with boys confessing to her once in a while), and one with honors (read: almost a genius) at that. I can understand that love is blind; I also understand that School Rumble‘s simply a comedy that uses the technique of absurdity to keep on fueling the paroxysms of laughter. I do, however, seek for a proper ending. I wouldn’t even mind if Harima ended up with Eri, as long as there is resolution by the end of it (but of course, I prefer Yakumo and Harima). I also can’t simply relate with much of the characters as I did for H&C is because H&C really struck closer to home compared to School Rumble – first of all, the characters are more believable, and second of all, although it may just be a bias, I always thought of slice-of-life anime as superior to purely comedic series. With SR, I just laugh at and with the characters, and save for Yakumo, don’t see much depth in them. At the least, H&C is going toward an ending (and will probably have a bittersweet one basing on how the manga ended). SR, with its pace right now, simply just decimates plot development every once in a while that it irks me deeply.
