Tenma Tsukamoto is the main protagonist from the School Rumble anime and manga.

Tenma a ditzy airhead with a crush on Karasuma and is the girl that Kenji Harima harbors feelings for.

In the AWA fics, Tenma appeared in Roka Shibasaki's flashback during the events of Chapter 10 of All Worlds Alliance Stories.


Tenma sports dark blue hair in the anime, and black hair in the manga, and has similar color eyes. Her trademark is the small pigtails that wiggle when she's happy or excited. When she is upset or tired, her pigtails come down, just like a dog does with its tail. She is usually seen in her school uniform, even when she went to school in America, as shown in the manga, but will wear other clothes, like during summer and winter break. Tenma is short, immature, and flat-chested for her age, which in turn causes people to mistake her for a middle school student, usually insulting her.


Tenma is shown to have a very naive and positive personality. She usually puts her positivity with her determination to get close to Karasuma. Tenma worries she has no good qualities, as she can only think of the bad qualities she has. She is quite childish, but really wants to be thought of as a woman. Tenma has a habit of misunderstanding and misinterpreting situations, even obvious ones. She is quite naive and gullible, as she is willing to trust anyone. Her pigtails adjust according to her mood.


Tenma is shown to be bad at cooking, sports, and academics. She is the only person who can cook worse than her friend Sawachika Eri. She fails at most sports she tries, but is surprisingly good at archery and skiing. She also learns to swim early in the series. Grade-wise, she usually gets all turtles (which is supposed to represent an F). Tenma is fairly clumsy, only adding to her worries that she is talentless. It is possible that she has a slight psychokinetic power, as she talks about bending spoons a few times to Yakumo and was once shown bending a spoon in an OVA. She has also shown some martial arts abilities to some extent, for example, in episode 5 during the flashback of her and Harima's first meeting she is shown to be able to flip Harima onto the ground despite his size.


  • In the AWA fics, Tenma is hated by Roka Shibasaki to death.
  • In the AWA fics, Tenma was bagged in the head by Roka.
