Summary
Tenma is sure that Kenji likes Mikoto so sheís determined to get them together. But when she hears him confess his love to another girl sheís not so sure. Kenji on the other hand is frustrated he canít seem to confess his love to Tenma without other girls getting in the way .
Review
This volume opens up with ladies man Kyosuke, Kyosuke lives for dates and will flit to the nearest available girl he can find. Rather reminiscent of Kare Kanoís Asaba he remarkably has a criteria, and it seems to stop at Ichijo Karen the super strong amateur wrestler. As far as Kyosuke is concerned girls that strong must be aliens.

Unusually thereís also a few chapters about the girlís friendships as Eri puts her foot in it and says she doesnít think " Makoto is cute enough" when talking about Harimaís taste in girls, Makoto predictably steps in at this point and doesnít give Eri the chance to get herself. Chapters like this really round the series out, whilst the guys get plenty of opportunities to fight the girls rarely do.

The standout chapters in this are the camping trip ones. School Rumble is at itís funniest when itís just Tenma and Kenji or else cramming the main cast all together. School Rumble has a tendency to drift a bit but when everyone is all together the gags come thick and fast.


Thankfully the bizarre humour is still in place in this volume as Kenjiís infinity for animals comes back into play. Sadly for him the animals in question are a lot larger than in previous volumes.

Whilst the last volume of School Rumble didnít seem quite so fresh volume for is back on track. Hugely enjoyable , with a quirky sense of love and humour

Rating: 8/10
