"A hilariously cute send-up of the high school experience!" --- Anime Insider
Ones a lonely number, twos company and threes a crowd But this gang sucks at math and I lost count long ago! Its uncharted territory with chapter three of School Rumble, as summer vacation heats things up beach-style! Weve got new players, new crushes, new takes on old crushes And nudity?!? (Not quite, but close! Real close!)
Move over Ahab, Harimas got you beat hands down Though Tenma might not appreciate the comparison! Its not like the girl would even notice
This volume is definitely worth the watch, containing both a comprehensive step-by-step mastering of "awkward situations" and its very own special after school special And yes, curry!
School Rumble The absolutely funniest show youll ever see thats not about anything that rumbles Ever!
Life doesn't get any saner at Yagami High as the zany romantic comedy School Rumble continues--nor is it likely to. Tenma, who's still mad at Karasuma for saying he likes curry better than her, attracts the attention of mild-mannered Kentaro Nara. But Harima warns Nara that he'll pound him into mochi if he even looks at Tenma for too long. A summer outing to the beach sounds like fun for the gang initially. But lecherous Imadori makes a pass at Mikoto, and Harima manages to lose his trunks twice, upsetting rich, proper Eri. Amid these contretemps, Tenma decides that Harima is in love with someone else in the group, and volunteers to help him rehearse a speech declaring his love. Director Shinji Takamatsu manages to keep the characters appealing although they remain terminally clueless teenagers. When Harima starts to look like a complete loser, the filmmakers show him gently caring for an injured cat, impressing Tenma's saner younger sister Yakumo. Brendan Potter and Luci Christian offer winning performances as Harima and Tenma. (Rated TV PG: suitable for ages 12 and older: comic violence, risqué humor, brief nudity) --Charles Solomon

The plot thickens and there's more character development than previous volumes (we finally get to know Hanai's and Mikoto's story as well as getting introduced to a new character). The dvd ends on a cliffhanger which viewers are enticed to find out what happens next. There are new realtionships that are developing, which is ok for this series as there are so many characters and you would like to know who has feelings for who. Also, who can forget about the magnets (though DVD 1 had the best magnets IMO)
The dvd only contains 4 episodes, down 1 from previous dvds. The extras are similar from previous installments as well.
If you are fan of the series, than it's an absolute must to purchase this dvd. If you are new to the series, I recommend buying the first dvd as you will be confused to jump into the series from this volume. Casual viewers might find this volume to be much better than the first 2 as it has situations that viewers can understand (non anime viewers to be precise, the first 2 relies heavily on anime fandom).
