I wouldn't categorise K-On with romance content. K-On is focused just on the girls and the music. The only reason, I watched K-On is because of Ritsu.

Still, I'm okay with him ending up with Yakumo, because she does care for Harima in her own way, but with Tenma, I think she'll be happier with Karasuma than Harima
Don't call Eri-chan stupid. She is one of the rare girls, who accept their feelings. When she noticed them, she wasn't to sure about, how the other person(Harima) felt and so she was often troubled in these situations.

I haven't seen a clear ending, where Harima ends up with Yakumo, btw. The SR ending is an open ending, where only a couple of love birds end up together. Harima wasn't one of them.

Toradora is a good series, speaking of developments in love. The ending is, not like SR, open, but really solied. Taiga ending up with Ryuji.


If talking about SR, one is never to late for the party, in some way. The series may get older and older, but the quality never drops. Tough it's sad, that with every additional year, the total number of animes is rising and less and less people are gonna even notice such a masterpiece anime and manga. What I see in the last few seasons is a trend, that goes slightly away from solid love stories, but are more focused on 'moe' and 'ecchi', what always makes money.

Hi and welcome here. Glad to see someone appreciates SR.

Like said SR is a great anime and manga, it's just how it ended wasn't that good.

I didn't really have any favorite characters until Azusa joined the band, but yea, I think I was unfair in comparing SR and K-On based on their genres.

I was trying to speak from Harima's POV :P, every time she's around he always ends up in some compromising position that torpedoes his chances with Tenma (hence him calling her 'stupid' more than once even though she's far from it..), though sometimes I'd like to meet someone like her irl.

As for the ending, it seems like a troper on TvTropes said that Harima ends up living with Yakumo despite being engaged to Eri, so it's a sort of 3-person engagement that everyone's happy with.

I had really hoped for Harima to lose the match in SRZ, simply because it would have been so nice to see their actual marriage between an embarassed Eri and Harima

I thought Toradora! was okay, with the ending seeming a bit forced and not as enjoyable compared to the earlier parts of the series. Still, maybe I'm just being fussy~

Mm yea, fanservice is helpful (*stares at Mayo Chiki* -.-) in getting a series that lacks decent writing to be popular.
I was somewhat surprised to see a few instances where there was more fanservice than I expected in SR (namely the few situations where the girls are bathing in a hotspring or in their shower rooms). Compared to most recent series, however, this low level of fanservice (to me) is much better and proves that SR doesn't have to appeal to hormones to be liked ^^

But hey, if Rozen Maiden can return, so can SR!

I haven't either to be honest. In terms of Rom-Com, only Seto no Hanayome and Hayate no Gotoku have come close, but never to SR level.

In terms of non Rom-Com shows, I loved Kemono Souja Erin, Katanagatari, Kino no Tabi, AnoHana and from last year Tari Tari. But even then, as much as I love these shows, they just lack something that SR had. And so SR remains top for me.

:O, I've heard of Hayate no Gotoku, but wasn't really sure if I should check it out. I think I'll watch them based on your recommendation ^^

Somehow I don't think that will work. If Jk's really interested in continuing an old series, there must be a trigger for him to do so. Maybe if he's getting bored with all the new stuff that he has produced or they're not as successful as he hoped, then he might look back at an old series like SR and decide that this might be a path for him to return to popularity again.
But fanmai from one of his fans, I don't think so :x He'll probably dismiss that as 'something I used to do around 7~8 years ago, but I've long forgotten about it and my current work is more interesting!'

I think, I plan to make a list of SR fans that are still active here. If you're active, quote this paragraph and add your own name to it ^^

Finally, I'm planning to do a drum cover each of 2 songs from SR that I like quite a lot and post on my YT account. I think it's the least I can do for an anime series that I like . I'll post the links here when I've uploaded the drum covers!

One does not simply discuss SR with JK. I think you take it to slightly. We have sent some mails to him but without any chances to get a reply. If you don't speak perfect Japanese, you don't have any slight chances, that he will read the email to the end.


I watched Hayate just for the jokes.

Completed the covers today
Check the description of this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fkYVgEl3mJA

(Or for those that are too lazy :P)
School Rumble!-Feel Like A Girl (Lia Ver) (Drum Cover 1): http://youtu.be/1FycWQEPvaM
School Rumble!-Kono Namida Ga Aru Kara Tsugi No Ippo To Naru (Drum Cover 1):http://youtu.be/5qvI1K-j9Lg

@Sola: Ooh, didn't know that your had tried something like that in the past. Mmm, haven't had time to watch any new anime I've had my eye on yet. but since Hayate has 2 favourable reviews, that should be the first few I have to check out ^^

You posted that in the other thread, already. There is no need to spam here. We are only a few people, who are still luring around in the SR part of this forum. Btw, this petition is three years old and it's most likely not active anymore, but simply a corpse of endless failed petitions.

This song was played a couple of times, but I don't remember episode, nor exact moment.

It's been a long time since I actually posted anything here, but I've been checking in on the news every once in a while!

Ahh, School Rumble... how bitter you left me. I still can't get over the cliffhanger ending, nor the fact how School Rumble Z practically tried to solve nothing. Small part of me still is waiting for Kobayashi to truly give a proper finish to this series, and it certainly needs a few more volumes for that.

If that'd be too much, I'd kinda like just rough 50 pages of 'after years'-style storytelling of what went on with everyones life (the most important characters, mind you). If only it was easier to get in touch with Kobayashi... It should deliver well enough for the fans as far as commercial success goes, I'd assume.
