The best way to describe School Rumble would be to compare it to the old Road Runner shorts. Tsukamoto Tenma and Harima Kenji are both Coyotes, and Karasuma Ooji is the Road Runner. And while Harima's quarry is Tsukamoto, she's not as smart as the Road Runner. She's quite dumb, actually. So is Harima. That's where the show gets a lot of it's humor.
These people get into really absurd situations in the pursuit of love.
