I will give my eye teeth to see that. O_o

you know, i don't think i'll be envious being the "target" of Akira's affection.

it'll be Angel Heart/FMP! all over again....

But isn't Mikoto deeper into the basketball faction than the flute one? I don't know since I haven't read the manga yet and only seen up to SR-S2-ep3. Having not encountered the basketball faction yet, I'm currently rooting for the flute faction.

Flag faction for teh win! It is indeed the faction with the most chemistry. However I feel sad for Eri though because so far it really looks one-sided, and barely above the onigiri faction. I'm not sure if the situation would happen with Yakumo, but if Harima would really go for Eri, she'd succomb in less than 5 mins of air-time.

Akira also needs to have a decent faction, I see lots of potential for good faction humor with her.

Well I'm glad that I'm not the only Oudou fan around.^^ I think they'd be great together. Not to mention the theme of "little innocent girl changes a delinquent's life forever" is incredibily cute. I really like things like that. And Tenma's love for Karasuma is a JOKE-really, he's barely a human. XD When they pulled the gag "Karasuma is an alien" episode, I seriously believed it. I thought "ZOMG this makes sense for how WEIRD he is!!"XD

I'm also leaning towards Flute. Hanai and Mikoto...yeah, let's face it, Hanai (thinks he's) in love with Yakumo for only her looks.

I don't really like Onigiri or Flag. Harima doesn't love or even LIKE either of them. Yakumo isn't even sure if she likes him and Eri's WAY too proud to consider the thought of confessing. Plus Flag is way too goofy and weird for my tastes.

I think Applejuice is cute.^^

BTW, I was for Onigiri. I cleaned up my sig - too fanboyish.

I dunno about anyone else but which hairstyle do you prefer Harima to have in the show. Their is his usually hairdo which you see now and my favortie look is towards the end of season 1 when he had like short kinda spiked hair.

Harima (spiked hair version) + Eri!!

Although I like and can sympathize with both Yakumo and Eri, I still prefer Onigiri, just cause I like Yakumo's character more than Eri. But I wouldn't mind if Harima ends up with Eri either.

So my favorite is Riceball.

I dunno, Harima/Yakumo feels like a mentor-apprentice relation. Yakumo's love for Harima feels like a student's infactuation for her teacher.

Overall I only hope that pairings get finalized at some point and not have the whole manga/anime air with relations "in the air"

Seriously, I hope - really, really, really, hope that YAKUMO ends up with HARIMA.

See, this is where I think many shounen comedy romance genres got it wrong. I don't don't see how:
Get together = End of troubles

If anything, it's the start of a whole new set of humor and misunderstandings. It's all in the hands of the author however...

I never thought that I'd live to see the day where an Oudou fan calls Flag "goofy."

I've seen a number of shounen romcom series continue on after the main couple gets together - but I don't think that it works very well. In my mind, either a series should pair the main couple up at the start, turning the story into a comedy about the ups and downs of the relationship, or it should get them together at the very end, making the story focus on the chase.

The reason is because they're both very different types of stories. When you have a character chasing after his/her crush throughout the series, you build up tension in terms of crisis-catharsis cycles. The moment of peak drama/tension is when the main character finally makes his/her feelings known - which is the peak point of the story. When you continue on with the relationship, you never reach the same level of tension that you did during the confession scene, and the remainder of the story feels weak by comparision. I'm yet to see a good exception - but maybe that's just me.

On another note - are we ever going to turn this into a poll?

Since I just watched S1 + OVA again, and read through the factions on the WF site, I have a bit clearer view of all that has happened up till now. I can understand why Flag has been the most popular pairing, since the chemistry is good. And it's comedy gold.

But Yakumo is my favorite character, which is why I tend to support Onigiri. After thinking about it, do the factions actually mean they are supposed to hook up? Since that doesn't seem necessary to me, I'd be satisfied with them developing a close friendship, as long as that makes her open up a little and smile more. Being able to read people that are interested in her obviously causes her to distance herself from them, and if Harima's obsession for Tenma allows them to have a normal relationship then so be it, it'll be good for her that way too. Harima developing an interest for Yakumo might be the worst thing that could happen (under that condition she could read his thoughts and she might distance herself again), them being friends might be for the best. Anyway, I think I'll settle for Kids Meal for now, so I don't have to make a choice between the two pairings.

About the listed pairings, there are several that aren't serious so could be stricken from the list imo: Pencil, Mission Impossible, Cousin, Royal Flush, Bloody Mary.

From what I understand, they're just potential couplings. And yes many of them are far-fetched, but that's part of the fun

One of the "problems" is that there are really too many options for a poll. To this end, I've trimed the list down a bit to hopefully make it a bit more managable.

Are there any problems if a poll was added to this thread with the following choices (don't forget it would be a multiple choice poll).

Flag / Jersey Faction: Harima x Eri
Oudou / Correct Path Faction: Harima x Tenma
Onigiri / Riceball Faction: Harima x Yakumo
Kids Meal / Monkey Faction: Harima x Eri x Yakumo

True Oudou Faction: Karasuma x Tenma

Dream Come True Faction: Hanai x Yakumo
Flute Faction: Hanai x Mikoto
Kite / Chocolate Faction: Hanai x Akira
Glasses Faction: Hanai x Yuuki

Applejuice / Apple Faction: Imadori x Ichijou
Banana Faction: Imadori x Lala
D Faction: Imadori x Mikoto

Basketball Faction: Asou x Mikoto
Chinese Food Faction: Asou x Sara

Cookies / Dynamite Faction: Tani x Tae

That list looks good to me, I see now I forgot to add Curry and Under The Moon in the list of options that aren't serious (eventhough Karasuma is very serious when it comes to curry, it isn't actually a real pairing ) and could be removed.
