FUNimation and crew,
I started watching School Rumble not to long ago only to find it had only two good sized, as in average, semesters (seasons) to my dismay and only two episodes in semester three . Feeling like it was far from finished and thinking it could still have the third semester completed as well as two more semesters added to the series, at least, I entered a deep dark depression full of despair. Harima, only wanting to see Tskamuto happy, and she was after finally getting together with Karasumo, could have gotten together with Tuskamuto's sister or Eri considering they both grew attached to Harima and began to love him and I'm sure Harima after the experiences he shared with both of them I'm sure he grew somewhat attached to one, or both of them, could have given them a chance to date him. Although it was a happy ending, a great anime and probably the best I've seen it was still very depressing to see such lovely work make so many depressed. I heard many more than me comment on Youtube on how they cried and I believe it was for the same reason as me.
The ending was only happy because Tskamuto fought to keep her love and got him, but what about the other's who fell in love I would like to see them happy for getting the one they love. For example Harima, who had achieved his main goal to keep Tskamuto happy and that's all he truly wanted even if he wasn't the one with her, could have been set up with Tskamuto's sister who fell in love with him or Eri who fell in love with him as well, but instead it was three broken unsatisfied hearts, the hearts of three of my favorite characters (next to Tskamuto). I thought it would be nice if Eri started to stop picking fights with Harima but not completely and not so suddenly because it's just her nature it's what makes her Eri, until she confesses her love then they could get together since I don't think Harima thinks so bad of her after what she admitted to him in semester 3, or if instead of Eri, my choice, you could have Harima continue using Little Sister a.k.a Tskamuto's sister as an assistant for Harima's magna until she confesses her love for him then they could get together, but I still think Eri as the better choice. I think Eri's the better choice because Eri a super rich girl and the boy who used to live on the streets it seems like it would make a great relationship and since you know Harima's not after the money, because of all the chances he could have her, and all Eri want's is love and someone who could put up with her and comfort her considering that's what he's done with her so many times it seems perfect. I also thought since you see Little Sister's middle school year in semester 1 you could do a semester 5 and we could watch Little Sister's last year and see how it would be for the others in life outside of High-School.
I give these ideas to give you ideas on how to expand this anime beyond two semesters and two episodes mostly to help clear up this depressing mood I'm having and I think many others would be happy as well.
But if you don't expand this series I'll be able to understand. I'm not all that sure about the cost to make an anime series but I'm sure It takes some funding or you can't take the risk because it may all go bad and you'll loss a bunch of cash but I'm sure it'll make a lot of people happy if you continue the series. I may only be 14 now but I still understand this kind of stuff takes funding and understand it may not continue making things worse for me than some my age but I believe it could continue and benefit everyone including yourselves.
But if you do decide to go the path of finishing up the series I would ask that the ones working on it review how the characters act and react to different things, as to keep the characters as remembered throughout the series, by watching the series until they get a good feel for the characters.
Again, great anime but very depressing because it was so great but the work seemed like the series could have a lot more in it.
An Anime Fan and a great fan of School Rumble,
I would most appreciate it if you gave me some update on the progress as to give you the view and opinion of a fan on what might need a little touching up. Just email me at [removed - see rules - Shiroi]
P.S I'm not saying this is a terrible anime because I actually think this is one of the best. It's the sudden stop and feeling that the characters have much to do till the series is completely finished, leaving me and probably many others into a depressing mood. I hope you can finish the semesters and make many people happy by putting many hearts at ease knowing they will get to see their favorite characters happy not just for another's love but for their own.
Anime are like people depending on the one making them and raising them determines how good it'll be and if people come to love it they'll wish it was their child but if it dies and they don't think they got to live a full life they enter a deep dark depression but unlike children anime can be brought back to life if done so soon. I think this was a fantastic anime but I don't think it got to live a a long enough or full enough life.
