It's nice to know we're getting closure. I'll miss Sukuran and cast, but I've got the Del Rey books to keep me coming back over and over again.

I hope this means they'll release the third semester anime soon, and it feels less filler.

Semester One was truly amazing.

Let's get Season 2 first! (unless you're in Japan instead of the US like me!)

Crap... Now I need to find something else to read...

Wow, DVD bonus? Usually it's just stickers/artwork/postcards/alternative dust-cover etc.... i.e. flat stuff that can fit in a volume... Well there was that cool Phone Strap....


But, After some searching I found the Japanese price for the bundle is 3480 Yen. Yeah, that's a little much... Kinokuniya is going to prob charge like 40+ USD for these 0_o....

So much for buying the special edition....

WOW, this is really unexpected news, but I guess it does seem it is coming to an end. I still wonder, who is harima gonna confess too (unless of course he does marry Sawachika)?

I also hope the final chapter is a long one

Wow, it's all coming to an end Shocked That I would have never expected now, but it is what it is. Although it did keep me somewhat entertained over the years, it is kind of sad to see it all end, but I'm happy with the way that it turned out. I wonder how Kobayashi is doing with Natsu no Arashi!

Is there a time skip? I ask because I took a look at the current chapter online and the characters look the same as they did in the first volume.

Man, first Black Lagoon gets a third season, and now School Rumble is coming to an end. Lots of big news. I'm sad to see School Rumble end, but I'm glad to finally be getting some closure. Hopefully San Gakki will be a hit.

Wow, its been a long, great run - hasn't it? Hopefully it will be a real closure on everything in the end... I am looking forward to DelRay getting the rest of the manga, and looking forward to the rest of the anime finally coming here too.

HarimaxYakumo ending, please. I'll be disappointed if otherwise happens, since she's my favorite character.

(Disclaimer: I've barely been keeping up with the American releases, so I don't know where the story is in the magazine.)

If you ask me I'd say it's a blessing. You don't want to know how lame the story has become in recent chapters. I start skipping it while reading the Magazine.

By the current arc, I KNOW I will dislike the ending...luckily SR was a comedy and it did entertain me for a long time, but I've become attached to some characters and it's sad that once more, they probably won't get a decent closure. I wonder why mangakas can't wrap up their stories in a better way, SIX YEARS writing a story and they can't give it a more climatic end ? I say this because the last chapters didn't seem to have that "it's ending" feel that we are suppose to feel and anticipate. Oh well, the only thing I can hope for is that Harima at least chooses one girl and that girl chooses him back (doesn't matter if it's Eri, who I don't like that much)...I hated the Ranma ending so much that I don't want to read that kind of stuff again. I know that since they are only teenagers (even though he doesn't looki like one xD)) it's natural that they don't end up marrying or something (that is the other extreme and almost as stupid as the main character ending up with no one)...but if the whole story was about liking somebody, it's just necessary to get a decent ending regarding that.

You've fallen into the same trap I did; thinking that School Rumble is a romance series.

It isn't; It's a gag manga; there's no such thing as plot.
