I don't know, I don't really see how he could end it without a real confession from either Yakumo OR Eri. Yakumo's half-confession and Eri's denial....... just seemed like it wasn't done yet. If he at least tied those up, it might have been an ok ending.
And yes, the ending DEFINITELY screws it up (so depressing :'()
About SRZ, well it appears that way according to the spoilers of chapter 5, but we'll have to wait till chapter 6 of SRZ is out to be sure because that chapter might, like the other SRZ chapters, be a 1-hit wonder and the story could change to something stupid shortly thereafter.... but I do hope you're right. (Chapter 5 sounded really enticing o.O.... out of nowhere. Maybe KJ is finally bowing to the fans?)
Same here. What got me hooked here is the realism of the situation of someone you like, but the one you like likes someone else. Also the characters are great, though the ending screwed it bigtime, but SRZ is trying hard to find redemption to that mistake.
Yes, I agree about the ending..... when I saw it, I thought to myself 'he can't seriously be thinking about ending it like THAT??!... he just screwed the three overwhelmingly most popular characters, thereby screwing everyone who made them overwhelmingly popular.' Ack, I don't know, I'm fine with Tenma going off with Karasuma, but it's so disappointing that Kenji ended up the way he did (depressed) as a result, not to mention Eri and Yakumo being alone. T__T;
Btw, School Rumble is a totally uncharacteristic anime for someone like me to watch; the one thing about it that initially got me interested (and the reason I got and still am hooked) was the similarity between Kenji and myself. Ha ha.
Hey. Nice to meet you. I'm a man of many names, but around these parts, I'm called 'lone wolf' (obviously ). Anyway, my School Rumble obsession craze is at the highest it's been at for a long time, so I want someone to talk to about it XD
