Riceball FTW!
I still think Harima is unworthy to hold Yakumo's hand.

K, I'm cheering for Flag myself but honestly I think that Eri would win if both Yakamo and Eri were to one day realize they both have feelings for Harima. Why? Yakamo is too docile when it comes to her own satisfaction and fulfilment. She will do almost anything for people she wishes to help, put herself at risk, stand up for people, help them, support them whatever. But when it comes to herself she's very submissive. She just doesn't have it in her at this point to be agressive and assertive enough to compete against Eri who has demonstrated herself to be a lot more assertive and agreessive in obtaining that which satisfies her.

They both know of their feelings towards Harima. Only reason Eri has a chance is that unless Karasuma makes everyone belive that he consider Tenma as his girlfriend, Yakumo will support the relationship between Harima and Tenma and won't do anything to jeopardize it. If Eri starts being much nicer to Harima and everyone around her, Harima can't help but notice it, since he is the only person who frequently is harmed by Eri, and he may start to think about Eri more than Tenma. Eri better not get Yakumo angry, for that might make Yakumo pursue Harima more aggressively, and it will be almost impossible for Eri to overcome the lead Yakumo has built in Harima's mind.

Again, the point that you seemed to have missed is that this is a story. You don't need to be able to see a path to the finishline to know that it exists. The odds don't matter - and in fact, chances are that the least probable outcome is the most likely one to occur. Underdogs always have an advantage.

The difference between a story and a random string of events is that the story is built with a central concept or idea in mind. Everything ties back to that central idea, which gives the story a unified feel as a whole. That's one of the reasons why the story is likely to end when it comes full circle with Karasuma's departure in March.

With regards to Onigiri, the reason that the faction is unfeasable is simply because the events of the story are not built around it. At the very best, its entire existance is tied back to Flag. You can see Harima and Eri interact on their own. By contrast, have you ever had a moment where you saw Yakumo and Harima interact where it was not linked back to some conflict within Eri?

The other point working against Yakumo is the nature of her success against Eri. In a matchup between Eri and Yakumo, Yakumo will always win. Why is this balanced? The answer is simple - Yakumo isn't conciously entering into conflict against Eri, so she isn't actually trying to antagonize Eri. The real conflict lies with Eri's inadequacies - it's really a battle of Eri against herself.

Do you really expect Yakumo to suddenly decide, 200+ chapters in the series, that she loves Harima, and use her God Mode Hax to win him over, coasting effortlessly throughout the series after Eri has overcome so many obstacles and put in so much effort just to get where she is?

And we haven't even factored Hanai into the equation, either.

She cooked for him to help him hide his dislike of shrimps. How is this anything new?

Yakumo is still unconfirmed, as always.

I just came across this thread and I was wondering why Harima x Tae (school nurse) isn't up there. Even though it isn't a very realistic combination, I would think it would be a good candidate. I hope I don't look like an ass for going a little bit off topic.

I think at this point Harima x Eri is still more likely. They really haven't even hinted that much to Harima x Yakamo... I don't know I think Harima x Yakamo would be a very wierd yet somehow boring relationship, he'd be with the sister of the girl he orginally liked and that in itself is messed but I don't see the passion there. Harima x Eri would be both funny and cute. There's definately passion there ^^

I don't know I like bandaid faction. It sounds cute... even though it's not something I'd support in the first place Flag faction will rule supreme!

He made no secret that one of the model for Harima is himself so I won't be surprised by Harima's taste in food. About his wife, I have not seen anything conclusive about it, since Kobayashi Jin likes his privacy. Finally, Curry ranks close to Ramen in Food power ranking.

Flag Faction +1

Honestly with the way the anime is going...its hard not to choose it, especially seeing how cute Eri is around Harima ^_^

Also, seeing how Yakumo's probably not the "type" of girl to get this guy in this kind of anime, chances r it will be between Tenma and Eri, and judging by the way CH.207 went, we might see some kind of resolution soon enuf O_O

Alas, there's little love for Oudou in particular and Tenma in general.

Oh well. Akane and Naru would probably lose popularity polls, too.
