Jin Kobayashi

Jin Kobayashi is the author of School Rumble, a cheerfully bizarre manga with the tagline “Subtlety is for Wimps!”. School Rumble is the story of a sweet, dopey girl with a good heart, the clueless boy she’s in love with, and the even-more-clueless guy who’s in love with her. Kobayashi’s manga is composed of about a million extremely short stories (frequently an entire chapter will be constructed around a single joke), which means that his love story moves forward at a glacial pace. But that’s okay, because this isn’t the kind of story you read to tug at your heartstrings—it’s the kind of story that you read, marvel at its ridiculousness, and still find yourself giggling about when it pops into your head a week later.
