He encounters Akira, who wonders what he is working on, and he asks her to ignore him. She then tells him about their Ski trip, and is enjoying observing his reactions. He decides that he can’t go because of the manga, and tells her to have fun for him.

Dream Jump…

  • The girls are skating, having a lot of fun, when they wonder where Tenma is, who happens to be doing a ski jump and is obviously pretty good at skiing. Akira is in a snowball, obviously enjoying being inside of it.
  • Everyone is surprised how good she is, and she says that it is always helping Yakumo with her skiing.
  • Some guys begin hitting on them, doing a heart in the air. They had already left however, saying they must be good men in order to hit on them.
  • She is acting a bit self centered, and meets Karasuma, who is on a snowboard and is in a covered in snow that looks like a snowman. Him seeing her self centered makes her a bit hurt.
  • They decide to do I love you very much along with the other girls, each one doing a character, but it ends up coming out as you are fat. He agrees with this, and leaves.
  • Karasuma then proceeds to do Thank you very much in the air, then leaves.
  • Lala along with Harry, Tougou, Imadori, Karen, and Satsuki are all at the skating rink, as Lala had wanted to learn how to skate.

  • Iori comes in and puts his cold paw on Yakumo’s forehead, then Pyotr comes in and does the same, much to Harima’s discomfort.

Overall Summary and Thoughts…

  • This episode was pretty interesting, it had some elements of comedy, but also other more serious elements too. The beginning skit was pretty funny, what with the encounter with one of women’s worst enemies, the bathroom scale, and Tenma being heavy from the New Years festivities. The skiing part was a part of the manga, and was pretty interesting to see animated. It’s amusing to see Karasuma being the oddball that he is, what with being covered with snow which is shaped like a snowman. Also was interesting seeing Tenma actually being pretty excellent at something, what with her jumps and such. The characters that they created while in midair was also pretty interesting, and was just as funny as the manga to see the ‘You are Fat’ sequence animated. The Ice skating part I do not remember from the manga, and is likely a anime only addition, but I felt that it was created pretty well in the spirit of the manga, and fit in pretty well. The sequence with Yakumo and Harima I also believe was a new addition, though I think I remember the reference to the rabbit. It has been a while since I last touched the manga, so it is a little fuzzy. I must admit I found the ice skating part to be the funniest part of the episode, what with the Lala+Imadori interaction. It is always fun to see the hijinx that those come into. Karen being good at skating wasn’t a surprise, since she is proficient in almost any sport that she does. Lala in the speed skating costume I felt was a really nice touch. Overall, I liked the episode, perhaps it wasn’t as interesting or as funny as some of the previous ones, but it was still enjoyable.

School Rumble Episode 24

Pre-OP

  • Hanai has been floating on the kite for two weeks, when he gets caught in a thunderstorm and flung by a tornado.

Southern Rainbow of 2C…

  • The whole class is on a luxury liner that belongs to Eri’s family. Everyone is enjoying the last weeks of their winter, by using the ship to go somewhere warm. The topic of Harima comes up and Mikoto asks Eri where he is somewhat slyly, implying that Eri would know, which makes Eri slightly embarrassed, who then says she doesn’t know.
  • Harima is in the ship’s hold, working on his 30 page manga that the editor had him redo. He is depressed by the fact that he can’t go with Tenma.
  • Tougou and Harry are meeting the ship later by paddling a Kayak.
  • Eri comes in on Harima, who hides, and she drags a tuna that had been defrosting. She asks anyone for help, and he brings it out and tries to cut it, but can’t, which makes Eri angry and she gets Masaru.
  • Masaru goes to the bridge, and Nakamura goes to check on the guests, and tells Masaru to just keep the ship going forward.
  • Tougou and Harry finally comes up on the ship, when Harima then notices reefs in front of the ship.
  • Harima and Eri go to the bridge to try to turn the ship, but Masaru won’t let go of the wheel, and the ship crashes into it. This breaks the engine and radio.
  • Nakamura and Masaru then go out in the kayak to get help.

Mysterious Yakumo Island…

  • Hanai wakes up in a foreign place, where he comes face to face with a tanner Yakumo, who is surprised when he puts his hands on her asking why she was there.
  • As he is walking around the town, he comes across Lala, who would appear to be the actual Lala. Eri is the queen of the land, and Yakumo is the sacrifice of that year.
  • He goes to go stop them, and when they explain that a great peril will befall their land with no sacrifice, he decides to go defeat David, the demon that was the peril.
  • While out in the forest, he sees the statue of a Kuuta panda, talking with Yakumo about it when David, who is what would appear to be a giant pig. He tries to attack it, but his sword breaks after a few hits on it.
  • He then notices the eyes and puts his glasses on the statue, which awakens it and creates a giant pair of glasses on it. The statue then punches the pig away.
  • In appreciation for what he did, Yakumo’s father decided that she should be his wife. He decides that this isn’t where he belongs and goes back onto his kite, and floats away.

The Seven Seas…

  • Everyone wakes up from being see sick, and they all had the same dream, and it was the events that Hanai experienced.
  • Hanai then appears, and they think he has brought help, but he is also stranded.
  • They run out of food, and are all depressed. The ship gets colder and colder Tenma goes out and sees Penguins on an ice bank, along with Karasuma in a penguin costume.
  • Seeing Karasuma gives Tenma strength, and the will to go on. With this, everyone gets energy.
  • A whale comes up and out of the water, and is on a collision course for the ship, but sees Yakumo and stops, getting flustered and falling in love with her.
  • They then tie the ship to the whale and use it to move.

Overall Summary and Thoughts…

  • This episode was pretty interesting, the only part that was in the manga was the middle section, with Hanai in the foreign land with the classmate clones. Not too much humor in this episode, compared to some of the previous, but still entertaining. I felt that the way that the ship part fit in pretty well, and liked their explanation for what happened to Hanai a bit better than the manga, which it was Akira telling a story of what could have happened to him. Overall not too much to say about this episode, the parts certainly aren’t exactly the quality of the manga elements, but still passable. Well, fillers are not usually as good as the original manga content in most series, so it is not surprising that this isn’t as strong as earlier on in the series. This leaves me hoping for another season, as I think it would be really interesting to see what they do with the Kyoto arc. I am only hoping that it won’t be another 2 years delay like it was between season 1 and season 2. I must admit though that it was pretty amusing with Hanai putting his glasses on the statue and it coming to life and beating a giant pig, all because he recognized the eyes of someone who needed glasses. Overall, a pretty decent episode, though nothing too special compared to other episodes in this season.

    I don’t think they did a good job with the transition of the “I love you:you’re too fat” scene. The manga had more effect since the equipment didn’t move. (If they didn’t do that shift thing and instead had them there in the first place… I mean, the viewers already know it’s “I love you”, right?)

    ep24 picture 5, is that the Sharpshooter? (i.e. Bret “The Hitman” Hart’s submission hold)

    say, what’s with itoko with that leather?

  • September 25, 2006 at 11:49 amqin

    leather is fun? :D its harima just imagining how screwed he’s going to become after reading some notes she posted.

  • September 25, 2006 at 4:03 pmGil

    Itoko went out. Locked Harima out of the apartment(again). But Harima copied the key and now he’s going to be dead. =)
