Fruits Basket is definitely a must see TV show. It is similar to School Rumble, not as much as some of the other TV shows, but if you ever feel like watching a great romance/comedy series with a little bit of sadness, Fruits Basket will blow you away in all of those aspects. ;D
Aside from having adorable character design and wonderful colours, Fruits Basket and School Rumble approach humour in the same style. There's a variety of characters and they all have bounds of energy. Both series have romance, but execute it differently. School Rumble initiates through love chasings, Fruits Basket brings it in subtly through character depth.
Fruits Basket and School Rumble are two romance-comedy-school life anime! They are both about love and misunderstandings, careless moments of one's school life and how to overcome minor problems (from being caught up in a funny romance trio, to being in a family where a hug might turn you into an animal!).
Fruits basket. and School rumble. are both random funny romantic comedys. they both center around a girl who is very kind hearted and caring. each anime has a little romance in it School rumble. more then fruits basket. if you like fruits basket you should like school rumble too (and vice versa) both amazing animes.
Lovely Complex is a story of a boy and a girl. The girl, Koizumi Risa, is much taller than the average Japanese girl; and the boy, Atsushi Otani, is much shorter than the average Japanese boy. Due to their immense difference in size and constant bickering with each other, the duo is unwillingly the school’s comic relief. As Risa and Otani continue to provide endless laughter for the masses, their friendship develops; and with that, so does Risa’s feelings for Otani...
Love isn't always easy - especially in high school. Gear up for the crazy antics of lovestruck teens with the fighting spirit to win the ones they want in Lovely Complex and School Rumble. No heartbreak is too great, and no opponent is too strong/beautiful to stop these hysterical characters from their pursuit of the ultimate high school romance.
School Rumble is a funny romantic anime; well, I'd say a hilarious romantic anime. Even though the presence of "romance" and love is not as much as in Lovely Complex, you'll definitely love it anyways. Both have moments that make you want to cry and laugh, and are adorable! I know for sure that at least female anime fans would love these.
Lovely Complex and School Rumble are both romance comedies that take place in high school. Both anime feature a slowly developing relationship. Also School Rumble has this joke-killing drama at times and love polygons, while Lovely Complex never gets strong at drama and barely contains any love triangles. If you're into romance comedies then you should definitely watch those two, since they are quite hilarious most of the time.
Each of these series are mostly comedy but have a decent amount of romance going on. While in a school situation, a lot of misunderstandings and failed attempts at love happen, making these series go well together.
While visiting his hometown, junior high school student Michishio Nagasumi's life was changed forever when he nearly drowned. Though he was saved by a mermaid named San, there’s a catch -- her family is part of a merfolk mafia, and they abide by a strict rule: If a mermaid is discovered by a man, either he or the mermaid must die. That is, unless the man marries into the family! Faced with such a decision, Nagasumi can only oblige their customs and become a "happy" newlywed. Now, with a new school year around the corner, Nagasumi must find a way to deal with his new bride, keep her true nature a secret, and most importantly, escape inevitable death at the hands of San's over-protective father’s gang!
Overall Seto no and School Rumble have a lot in common, starting with the types of characters, ranging from a lead sporadic guy to a deeply in love girl, followed by the overall humor that both share. Whether they're going to class, participating in school events, or just at home, the anime both share the same slapstick and random humor that almost all can enjoy. If you enjoyed one of them there's a very good chance you'll enjoy the other.
both animes havea very simillay kind of humor full of funny characters andevents.love tangles,misunderstandings,weird creatures...all and all both are great romanitc comedies.
These shows both feature a fast pased comedy adventure. Every episode is hilarious and leaves you wanting more but the main plot isnt focused on as much.
Both School Rumble and Seto no Hanayome share the same random slapstick type of comedy. At points none of them make any sense at all. If you are looking for comedy with a plot neither of them is your cup of tea. But if you just want mindless laughs both of them are good fun.
Both have lead men subject to pain and misunderstandings while trying to win the heart of a lady. However, I must say San from Seto no hanayome is a more interesting leading female than her School Rumble counterpart. Both anime keep adding characters to the mix throughout the anime to keep the comedy fresh and create new situations (Not something I particularly enjoy, but to each its own).
At Cromartie High, it’s tough being a delinquent -- a fact that do-gooder Takashi Kamiyama intimately understands. When he’s not engaging in contests of strength and rival gang wars, Kamiyama can also be found submitting punny jokes and planning his own rise to fame within the delinquents’ ranks, and that’s just the beginning! With friends like robotic Mechazawa, a giant gorilla, a hairy man from the 80s named Freddie and a clan of delinquents with mohawks that flow in the wind, how can anyone not enjoy high school?
Hilarious with just the right amount of random, which by the way is plenty. And oh yeah they both take place in school/classroom. Just another day in the life anime with gorillas, robots, love, and aliens. Whats not to love.
Both shows revolve around the life of a school student constantly at school. School rumble is longer and tries harder to put story behind their episodes which is necessary to some point because there are so many episodes. Cromartie is more focused on outragious comedy and will achieve it at all costs.
A delinquent is at the helm in a ship driven by oddball comedy, unorthodox situations and in Cromarite especially, hilarious conversations. Whiel the characters bounce off each other for jokes and a few gags, both have their roots in comedy and in School Rumble's case, a bit of romance. The randomness helps bring them together and both have excellent dubs.
Ayumi, Kei, Koyoi, Rika and Nao are five middle school friends whose hot topic of conversation is, as always, love. Ayumi dreams of having a boy confess to her and can't understand the idea that receiving unwanted confessions can be troublesome. She even believes that she will happily accept any guy who approaches her - that is, until she receives a love letter from Misao, a large, delinquent high school boy whose very presence makes small children cry! Not wanting to date him but too scared to reject him, Ayumi has no idea what to do, especially when Misao, now nicknamed Beast-kun by the girls, begins following her to and from school. To make matters worse, Ayumi then falls for Mamoru, a boy in her class who is Beast-kun's brother! With plenty of experiences in life and love left ahead, will the girls retain their naive beliefs, or is it time to shake off that brother complex and realize that appearances aren't everything?
Both of these series focus primarily on love, and in particular love triangles. While School Rumble takes a more obvious and random humorous look at the subject of love, both series use a lot of comedy in the storytelling. If you liked one, it's worth watching the other.
Both series are lighthearted slice-of-life comedies that don't really take themselves too seriously. There are a lot of similar characters in the series. You can pretty much find a counterpart for every character in the other series (Tenma = Ayumi, Eri = Kei, Harima = Misao ..... you get the idea). Also both series tend to spend a few episodes on each of the characters and then move on to the next. Because of that, it is very difficult to classify anyone as "the main character". Rather, there really isn't such a thing as a main character in either series.
Both shows have a delinquent who's not your typical delinquent- they're a lovey-dovey guy who just wants to convince the girl he loves to love him back!
Both are jam-packed with love triangles, unrequitted love, and minunderstandings about all things love. They're full of cute girls and funny guys and a bunch of slapstick humor that may or may not make you fall out of your chair laughing. Both have huge casts of fun and exciting characters who will have you rooting for them (or cursing them, depending on the role) until the very end.
Hatsukoi Limited has more fanservice than School Rumble, so you've been warned.
