This manhwa is pretty useless and I don’t think I would give it a second look.

This OVA leaves a very contradictory impression.
While it has some obviously weak points, it can also be entertaining in the right conditions.

My first post – School Rumble

January 1, 2007 at 12:31 am | Posted in anime, review, school rumble | Leave a comment

A little more than a year ago I’ve tried watching School Rumble, but after seeing a couple episodes of the first season, I’ve discarded it.

It had quite a good rating on anidb, so then the second season came out, I also gave it a try – and it failed far worse.

Now, after a lot of time has passed, I made one last attempt at it – and I found this anime quite good and entertaining. But why did I not enjoy it before?

The reason is simple. Sukuran is a character driven show, and unless you know and like its heroes, most of the jokes would seem stupid and uninteresting.
In the beginning, the main characters – Tenma and Haruma – did some incredibly dumb things, and since I didn’t know their good sides yet, I didn’t like them.
This time I managed to stomach five or six episodes – and they began to grow on me, no longer being just some idiotic duo. Each following episode only added more to the dimensions of the cast, creating a rich and interesting universe that I enjoy right now.
