SR Character Information and Discussion

Hey, simple request.

As most know, there is info about characters in the manga. Is it possible that you, the reader, out of your caring generosity can post information about any character i.e. Harima, Yakumo, Eri, Tenma etc. about info i.e. height, weight, etc.

Thx alot.

Hmmz, I've visited this page a few times, and seems that no one is willing to provide the info. Well the SR manga I have is in chinese, and most of the "vital stats" are not really included... they are actually scattered throughout the series. I'll try compiling them and post them, but meanwhile, sorry man, you have to wait a while longer......

I can probably post it, but why would you want to know info like that though? The manga is licensed so it will be coming to US, it much more interesting reading it and find out. If you still want it I can post.

Well, I know for a fact that Harima is 5'8 and still growing.

At least thats what he said, which is why he said he was going to get another bike when in reality he wants a faster bike because he lost a racing competition to Itoko's friend... um... the art teacher woman, forgot her name.

why does the introduction of new characters in school rumble never get boring?

its like a magical effect.

even in the last half of the show lots of characters are introduced. some of them are even cliche'. but they are never boring. they have a sense of uniqueness you can feel even though their appearance may be plain. maybe im just too much of a fanboy when i watch this though :3

You've noticed this as well.. I've been trying to make sense of it, but man I can't.

Why do the cliche characters not have a cliche feel.
Maybe because, even though they're cliche, unpredictable stuff happens.

I think that for some characters, it is the fact that they are so cliche that makes them so entertaining.

You can see lots of parodies of the way cliche characters are.

I would say it's because they act as we want them to act.

School Rumble gives us what we want : normal to crazy characters interacting with each other the way which entertains us the most.

The second reason would the double (triple ? quadruple ? ) use of "dense as a rock" character. Harima, Tenma, Hanai and Imadori ...
How could you resist to so many impulsive, silly, predictable yet surprising numberous people.

It's reminds me "Road Runner and Will Coyote" for Warner Bros (don't know the real title in US).
You know the wolf will fail, but you don't know how ... just like School Rumble !

Also, the most famous mangas, animes, movies ou books are mainly composed of stereotipical characters. That's why they sell so good : Anyone can recognize himself in one of them.

(sorry for the bad writing, it's 2:00 am in France ... )

i thought Lala was boring and mostly unnecessary.

but for the most part, i think it works because all of the characters are unique even in their clicheness.

I though the same before.
But her interactions with Imadori are truly excellent !
He is Ichijou's "boyfriend", so a trophy to claim after the victory. But she quickly realized that his manners weren't ... acceptable !

Still, he is the only one who doesn't fear her, despite the number of broken bones he end up with.
Every boys and girls (minus Ichijou) are afraid of her, except for Harry and his friend. But those two are too much lonesome to let her come closer ...

I hope we will see how those three have met. They seem to be quite friendly (well, as friendly as they can be )

Agreed, Lala sucks but she's kinda needed to show the contrast between 2C and 2D, along with Harry MacKenzie and that other guy with the samurai look. Definitely she annoys me though

My memory of first season is kind of fuzzy but I remember that Lala is a guy dressed up as a girl right? There was this episode about this guy with great strength coming to Japan from Argentina (or some country in South America) who found someone with greater strength than him and that was Ichijou. Am I remembering things right or my brain is getting illusional now?

Lala is definitely a girl. Perhaps you might be mixing her up with her father, with whom she came to Japan. In the flashback, she's the little girl, and the man is her father.

Dude if Lala turned out to be a guy I would stop watching SR immediately. Her presence is bad enough as it is, but that would just be sickening

Ok I did rewatch the part to verify. I think I was skipping around and didn't pay too much attention. Maybe because I selectively saw these images to jump to that conclusion.

Does anyone have a complete list of the 2-C classmates? I know that a few characters are still yet unnamed, but it would be nice to still have a list of known classmates.
