Am I the only one who starts to feel more than just a bit sorry for Ojou? How far will she have to be bent out of shape before she realizes that it's hopeless? ^_^;

As a dedicated Kids Mealer with a slight preference for Flag, I've got to say that I'm not pleased about the complete lack of development in Harima. And the more time is wasted with Harima keeping his hardwired lock on Tenma without at least developing _doubts_ regardless of the efforts of the other girls, the more I dread either an infinite no-progress open ending or the worst of all worlds: The true path.

If the mangaka was planning to give other girls a chance, he'd have to start sowing at least some seeds. I don't see him do that, instead we get more of the same stale humor without progress.

*shrug*

At least I can't say I'm pleased.

Well...Harima had SOME development. The Christmas chapter, for example, when he did a little self-reflection... thinking about his past and his future...and in a way, deciding between his career and tenma... that was some kind of development, right? and he's sorta developed doubts about tenma in the past, like when he tried to forget about his feelings for her after finding out she likes karasuma.

but i agree with you about the fear of how the manga will end. if after all this time and hundreds of chapters, the manga had a no-progress open ending, i'll probably have to lay off manga/anime for a while... i'll be too angry at how much time i spent and hopes i had for SR.

i'll feel the same way if SR ends up a True Odou ending. that would be the worst because all the other SR pairings have put so much more effort into their relationships (all the crap harima's gone through for tenma, eri for harima, etc.), while karasuma and tenma only interact like every 20 chapters!! it would be a huge disappointment if everyone's efforts to be with their special person shows no results while tenma/karasuma get together (who both haven't spent much time together nor put out half as much effort to be together as the others have). i'm a HUGE harimaxtenma fan...but i would even go so far as to say i'd REALLY prefer a flag or onigiri ending over true odou.

I personally hope that Harima wakes the hell up and takes a good look around him. How many guys (anime guys or RL guys) would give their right arm to have a beautiful blond girl like Eri trying their damnedest to get noticed and end up in a serious relationship with them. I understand that this is a "Love Comedy" series but it can be rather frustrating to read (or watch) at times.

Of all the main cast of girls I would have to say that Sawachika-san needs a good man by her side the most. All those little short silent sceens of her just sitting in her big empty mansion looking up at the night sky makes her seem sad and a little lonley. Karasuma and Tenma make a good pair in my opinion so I hope they end up together. Akira doesn't seem to need anything but her friends and, more so, her money . Miko-chan has Asou and even though they broke up, shes a strong character and will be fine (plus I see them getting back together anywho).

All in all I hope Eri ends up with Harima in the end. Some would argue that this would defeat the whole purpose of the series (Harima chasing after Tenma). But a show that can grow and change over time is a far better thing in my opinion. That and I would really hate to see Eri end up totally crushed .

Cosplay Eri-chan is made of awesomesauce and win.

PS: People who complain about plots/storylines but continue to read SR remind me of the "Comic Book Guy" from the Simpsons.

Harima believes that Eri hates his guts. As I have repeatedly said, they bring out the worst in each other. Only way I can see Harima warming up to Eri more than now would be for some outsiders like Akira to make Harima realize that Eri is making fool out of herself for she is infatuated with Harima. ( By the way, I think Akira is capable of doing almost anything ) As long as Harima firmly believes that Eri is out to hurt or humiliate him, there can be no meaningful progress in their relationship.

As for Tenma, Karasuma has such a huge lead, that one kind word by him would make all Harima's effort vanish; Harima is fighting a valiant but futile battle. We have seen that Karasuma likes Tenma. We also saw Karasuma easily defeat Harima in so many ways. For sake of Tenma AND Harima, I wish Karasuma would just whisk Tenma away to somewhere far away. The School Rumble series has so many characters, that it can roll along just fine with Tenma somewhere in the outer space or Harima having no interaction with Tenma.

If Karasuma does make Tenma inapproachable to Harima, what's left for Harima, who will be totally devasted? The girl who can make Harima snap out of his misery is Yakumo, for he just owes her too much to not listen to whatever she says. The problem is, Yakumo is too good for Harima, in many ways. Although I belive Harima will be much happier with Yakumo than anyone else, I don't think he deserves her so it is best if he gets 'tamed' by Eri as a punishment for all his shortcomings. Still, Yakumo has a soft spot for Harima, and I doubt she will push him in Eri's way. If Eri and Yakumo gets into fight, I believe Yakumo will win again, and Harima is much more likely to support Yakumo compared to anyone else save Tenma.

even so, i highly doubt that the prospect of eri's foolishness alone would convince harima of anything

he might see her in a different light, but at the same time it's worrisome and might in the end hurt eri's feelings assuming those exist

maybe i'm just looking at it that way because of how harima turned down what's her face from the nurse's office before, and harima continually tries to kid himself that he's devoted only to tenma

on the other hand i'd like yakumo more if she didn't gain deus ex powers all of a sudden just because someone called her sister names making me think of mandy from billy and mandy

holding more comments until later because i want to finish eating and play more ff12

At this rate school rumble is never going to end till they all graduate. Heck it might even drag off into the college years too which is doubtful. But Usually 3rd year is when things get much more serious and we see everyone seperating and selecting their paths. Maybe that might be the direction of this manga

Hopefully not. Considering how this is a love comedy, if the storyline becomes serious like that, this manga series would lose much of its taste.

I believe there are much room for serious storylines in School Rumble, but I have yet to see the Mangaka's interest in developing them. It may be his intention to keep the things way it is for another year or two. One interesting thing is that most moments that has any seriousness usually had Yakumo being involved.

If you count the serious scenes it's Eri that takes the cake for sheer quantity however Yakumo still has a best serious/silly scenes ratio. That's because Yakumo has gone into the shadow ever since the christmas arc and just appeared now and then. But that's only natural cause SR is at its best when there is comedy and romance (even serious romance) mixed and that's one thing that only Eri can achieve. Yakumo just isn't good enough for a major role.
