Summary
Kenji is trying to move on and find himself. Heís become a fortune teller who lives with the animals. The girl who's caused this radical change is still totally unaware of his feelings as she pursues Karasuma, the trouble is he canít decide if he likes curry better than Tenma.
Review
Now that the characters are established School Rumble can get right into the gags without worrying. This also means that volume 3 is likely to be much more difficult to get into. That said the author really knows how to use the extensive cast, just as Kenji tries to confess his love to Tenma, snobbish Eri manages to get in the way so that Kenji accidentally confesses to her. This volume also sees some more page time for the delightfully odd Karasuma who was fairly neglected in previous volumes.

The main focus in this volume is an obligatory trip to the beach. This means that a large number of the regular cast are forced together, this makes the plot much tighter and more cohesive. Almost everyone likes someone else the trouble is very few of these couples match up, creating a lot of confusion and thankfully comedy. It also provides an excuse for the characters to get to know each other properly, and integrate outsider Kenji into the group more. Even if it does mean his Eri related problems increase by the minute. Thereís also an extremely touching scene where Tenma tries to teach Kenji how to confess his love to girl he likes, little realising it is her.

School Rumble is the type of manga thatís extremely rewarding to itís fans, and there are many gags that might seem extremely random but re actually funnier if you know the background. In some ways this is also itís downfall, there are just so many characters itís sometimes hard to keep track of them all. Personally Iím cheering for Kenji easily the best character in the series.

Rating: 7/10
