Summary
Eri seems to be thinking about Harima a lot lately, heís loud uncouth and defiantly not her type so why canít she get him out of her head? On top of his Eri problems, Harima still hasnít confessed his feelings to Tenma and thereís a major manga competition looming.
Review
By Volume Seven School Rumble has clearly become the Harima Kenji show. This is no bad thing, Harima Kenji is easily the best character in the manga. His twin obsessions of making manga, fuel each other leading Kenji to dig himself deeper and deeper into trouble.

Eriís confusion over her feelings for Kenji cause her to write a graffiti on Harimaís desk which proclaims them a couple. Eri skips school leaving Harima to take all the heat, Tenma gives her blessing for the Eri and Harima coupling leading Harima to run away to sea in his desperation.

The characters in this volume are really starting to develop, most of all itís Eri who has changed and itís nice to see it. Whilst characters such as Tenma are endearing, she hasnít developed where as Eri at least has changed even if she canít work out how.

Of course at itís heart School Rumble is still a comedy, flitting around stories in a heartbeat. On one hand itís nice to have the variety, on the other thereís that constant up-down feeling as chapters change from those you like, to those you hate. Thank goodness for Harima.

Rating: 8/10
