It is funny how easily it is to miss the release of something you like even with all this technology to like the Web with its RSS feeds etc.
The point is that first episode of School Rumble The Third Term was released in July! I just watched it -- first thing I noticed was that it started as if this OVA was episode 25 and 1-24 been produced and released. There is a short review of the whole fictitious season (based on the manga) and then it picks up (if you are familiar with the manga) right at the end of the walking festival.
I have to say I am very disappointed that they skipped over so much great School Rumble material from the manga. I was really looking forward it to being made into anime form. The leading seiyu(voice actors) Takahashi Hiroki and Koshimizu Ami really give life to the characters. Also animators really add the delivery of what is a awesome show.
Enough of my complaints because I want more School Rumble. The episode it very good! Watch it! I am looking forward to Episode 26 when it comes out at the end of this month!
