Notice for Review Requests

I receive review requests weekly. However, my personal schedule is hectic and I no longer review actively. (I also manage another blog called The Toronto Cafe and Food Blog). I do read every request sent but I apologize in advance that I do not reply to them all.

If I do take on a request, I will forewarn that it may take some time before I can review it. I am now looking to review adult fiction and self-help books instead of young adult fiction because I have grown out of it. If you are to request a review for either adult fiction or self-help, I will more likely to give it a shot.

In the meantime, Stop, Drop, and Read! serves as an archive book review blog. When I have the time, I may post a review. Thank you for understanding.

School Rumble by Jin Kobayashi

Title: School Rumble
Mangaka:
Jin Kobayashi
Age Group:
Teens
# of Pages: Approx. 170
# of Volumes:
17
My Rating:
4/5

Tenma Tsukamoto is madly in love with the simple Oji Karasuma but ever time she tries to confess, something foils her plans! Or she ends up messing it up herself!
Kenji Harima is a scary delinquent who likes Tenma very much. But every time he tries to get closer to her, something bad happens! As both of them try to score their love, many events happen in between. Unplanned situations, friends jump in, this and that, oh the drama!

This series setting is more or so goes on as a daily basis plot line. So everyday = new and random events. It evolves around every character within the manga, revealing a bit of their background each. It's very cute but I definitely recommend the anime. The anime is much funnier than the actual manga itself! Since the anime ended abruptly, I think the manga would be more suitable if you want to know what happens at the end (but I don't think the series have ended yet in Japan). There is a second season that recently came out so I would have to look that up also. So far what I've read, the manga and the anime stays close to each other. So no confusion whatsoever if you want to pick up one or the other.

Please do not hotlink.


If you want to use my scan of the book then save it and upload it to your server, or to an image hosting service. There are plenty of those that are free.
