Maybe Yuu's actually impotent. It seems strange that Akiho would get so depressed over unintentionally cockblocking Haruna, especially if she really was two-timing Yuu.

Good thing Haruna has a certain alien friend who could probably whip up something to fix that

^ Agreed on the two timing, but I don't think she cares enough. Since she is not taking the relationship seriously.
It looks like Yuu(IMO) wants to really try to make this relationship work, but Akiho is not interested in a serious relationship. She really needs to tell him this because if she doesn't she is only going to get hurt him a lot more in the end.

I don't have a problem with Haruna being the shy girl. I actually like her. The problem I have with it is the complete lack of real development this series still seems to show. Rito being so dense really starts to wear thin after a while and Haruna being shy just exacerbates the problem.

Same here, while the deal with "person Haruna was based on" was not nice, that doesn't matter to me when it comes to who Haruna is in the story and well she is a rather very boring character on the whole, which is why I can't really like her too much.
She's a character that won't stand out compared to the rest but somehow ends up being very fun when the "switch is flipped" evidence with this drunk chapter and the sadistic one(still prefer her sadistic side much more)

I'm still fine with the way this series goes atm, it has some development as it goes, not alot but it's there.
But then I've long known to not expect a great deal of development from this and just enjoy the fun!

There's also the problem of the girls around Haruna totally overshadowing her. They are generally more interesting and flashier characters, the alien girls are quirky and cuter, plus they have their own situations and the human girls stand out more as well (Yui for example has hotter body and a flashier personality).
She isn't just the shy normal girl...she's the bland generic shy girl that usually sticks to being a background character.

In any other manga (or at the beginning where there were fewer girls) Haruna would be fine with the character she is now, fewer competition and fewer girls to steal the spotlight. But with her type of character actually winning back the spotlight is hard unless something outrageous happens like her flip being switched. There's a reason why an intoxicated Haruna (who is much flashier and forward) is so much more popular than her normal self.

This conversation was started to explain why most people aren't into Haruna, NOT because of the woman she was modeled after but because of other factors...

She was modeled after his wife, which is why she fell out of the spot light after their little domestic dispute. Falling out of the spotlight made her less popular because she was now just a side character who only existed to keep Rito and Lala from moving ahead with their feelings. So being modeled after his wife is a factor in her lack of popularity.

I'm not too sure she was ever based off Yabuki's wife. I know she tryed to sue him and jump over it but if I remember correctly there were interviews that said she was mostly designed by Saki, remember the Exwife seemed a little batshit crazy.

Anyway Haruna has never realy fallen out of focus, she's even had more panel time then Lala has through out Darkness and it never decreased durring TLR. As I've said before. Haruna's problem has always been any major (and most minor) development from her and the hearem colapes (first it would have ended up with just Rito and Haruna, now it would be Rito, Haruna and Lala maybe Momo and Run.) So it has all been pretty much fluff therefore easy to forget. You can only go to the Rito/Haruna fail at confessing to each other well so many times before it becomes stale and once the confession happens all the other relationships become locked in place, do you really think as it stands now Rito would engage in any building up any more of the relationships if he knew the love of his life returned his feelings? He's just starting to get over feeling guilty that his other love and her younger sister is encouraging him to hook up with Haruna (and more) as well. The other girls just have to worm their way into his heart to the point they wont be left behind when Rito and Haruna do admit thier love fore each other.

I really doubt she fell out of the spotlight because of the dispute, like I said...she was simply overshadowed by the more interesting and flashy characters that started to show up.

Next story arc: The To Love Crew heads to the magical land of Oz, where they will receive the wizard's gifts!

Haruna will get courage.

Nemesis will get a heart.

And Rito will get a GODDAMNED BRAIN.

Jesus Rito, are you still clueless that Haruna digs you!? That flashback to what Momo said hinted that he might be starting to get it, but amazingly it still hasn't clicked!

Anyway, I agree, drunk Haruna is fun. She should come around more often!

And what a considerate onee-chan she has, who feels such deep guilt and regret at preventing her lil sis from getting some

I think Rito is holding back ever since from what happened with Momo, I thought he was gonna give in. when he she was advancing on him and he touched her shoulder and she moved back.
That probably gave questions in his mind is it really right to do it and he might do something he cannot undo anymore.

The latest chapter was good. Drunk Haruna was pretty funny, and I also like what they're doing with Nana.

That said, Haruna just isn't for me. I've felt this way since long before the ex-wife thing, so it's not an outside factor. I just don't find her very appealing. Her character design is just okay, and I find her to be boring. I understand why she's so normal. With all of these zany characters, there needed to be at least one normal girl. But even so I just can't get into her character. She does have some interesting quirks, don't get me wrong, and she's had some good moments, but she's just not for me. I'm more of a Yui, Momo, Mikan kind of guy.
