I don't know why people keep bringing up long-running series like Maison Ikkoku to relate to School Rumble long-windedness. For one, I'm not sure how you can even put Kobayashi Jin (School Rumble) anywhere near the same level as Rumiko Takahashi (Ranma 1/2, Maison Ikkoku, Inuyasha, Urusei Yatsura).

Rumiko Takahashi anime series could run for seemingly forever because of her immense popularity. She's one of the best known and influential mangaka outside of Japan. Can we say the same for Kobayashi Jin?

If SR does not conclude in Term2, there is no guarantee that there will be a Term3. So many anime series which ought to have another season did not have one. So rather than an ending that has no meaning (SR Term 1 ending), I'd rather Term2 deviate from the manga and have a proper conclusion.
