Umm....I don't think so. It's obvious that Yakumo loves Harima...look at all the times she's been with Harima. When she talked with the ghost, when she made the food for Harima, when she helped Harima out with stuff....the list goes on...And yeah, this last chapter had Yakumo hesitate while asking her sister to replace her. Yeah I bet Yakumo would really want her sister to be with Harima on the outside, but the inside speaks different. I think what YOU are thinking is what Yakumo WANTS you to think.

Let's take a look back over what we've seen.

The start of the chapter is essentially a copy of the last two episodes of Season 2 of the anime (without the veiled Chobits parallels, of course). In so doing, the chapter keeps the events of the anime consistant with the manga. Prior to the events of Ch.205-207, there were three important differences between the manga and anime:

1) Yakumo demonstrates that she is aware of Harima's interest in Tenma
2) Yakumo starts her efforts to set up Harima and Tenma
3) Tenma replaces Yakumo as Harima's assistant

This chapter's efforts to implement these changes into the manga will probably prove useful if there are any plans to create a third season in the future. If this is the case, it would explain why we've had this temporary shift in focus away from the growing conflict between Tenma and Eri, over the past couple of chapters.

Harima's reaction to Tenma's question on p.7 is oddly ambiguous. If you swapped in Eri for Harima in that exact same pose and expression (complete with stutter and averted gaze) and changed the content of Tenma's question from Eri to Harima, it would be a classic tsundere response. It's fairly easy to see why Tenma misinterpreted Harima's answer.

I'm not so sure if we'll actually see an open conflict between Eri and Tenma, at least for a while. Given what we've learned from the past three rivalries, Eri tends to give up whenever she feels certain that Harima's feelings lie elsewhere. Eri only tends to fight openly when she feels cornered, which may take some doing, yet.

The other point to note is that up to now, Tenma has taken it for granted that Eri's relationship with Harima appeared to be stable. With the events at the end of the chapter, Tenma (hopefully) should be aware that there is some sort of problem between the two. As such, we may see some attempts in the future by Tenma to "fix" Eri's relationship with Harima. Given the fact that we have yet another play ahead of us, there are plenty of possibilities in this direction.

The big question mark floating out here is Karasuma. I'm waiting to see what's going to happen with him. Until we get more information about the big deadline, it'll be hard to determine when the main climax will take place.

I agree. The person who will decide the future of everyone is Karasuma. What he says and do will have immediate impact on Tenma, which will quickly affect Harima, and then everyone else. Until I see Karasuma announcing what will happen when they become 3rd year students, I will keep expecting a reset.

i just want this series to end, as much as i'm interested in the relationship web, the series is starting to show that its running out of comedical ideas. I love the series but i wanna see it end on a high note rather than it turning into a crap story...

I think that either if Karasuma stayed or not, the ending would be the same. I mean, his departure won't change Tenma's mind, she loves him and she doesn't love Harima, as well as Harima loves Tenma and he doesn't love Eri or Yakumo.
The only effect of that departure, is that it would work as a catalyst for the conclusion. It would accelerate it, not change it.
However, I'm quite enjoying the efforts of Eri and Harima to be with their respective loves. In my opinion, those who don't enjoy that, will be very dissapointed at the end of the manga.

if eri does any lashing out, she's more likely to complain that people were pushing her into being with harima in the first place and she just wants to be left alone on the subject, because if anything, she's still protective of her feelings

Maybe so. Then we are left with another reset.

The story progresses...but extremely slowwwwwwwwww...because KJ focuses more on the comedy and misunderstandings.

to a degree i can understand your complaints and not that it's up to me anyway, but if it were i'm sure it'd be full of awesome because i am king of the internet

but i can also understand why the story is going so slow if it's developing the story and characters naturally rather than forcing the hand because people are pressuring the guy to put out material just to satisfy their lust for garbagey assembly line quality material

though i do worry about suspicious filler material that just all of a sudden takes a break from whatever they were in the middle, and i guess that's a stylistic thing but it really bugs me to read through like that

Jealousy rears it's ugly head.

As much as I don't want to gloat, this reaction on Eri's part was most predictable, but at least she thinks she is going somewhere, and the fact that Harima accepted might actually boost a few hopes for Flaggers, regardless of his real intentions for accepting her invitation.

What part of the summary implied Harima's motivation for accepting? Your post doesn't make much sense to me at all.

Eri's reaction is fairly consistant with what we've seen of her personality in the past - there seems to be a number of parallels with the Mikoto incident from early on. The mention of the minor incidents reinforces this - Eri is willing to let pretty much anything slide, save for the betrayal of a close friend. Once Tenma manages to clear things up, as Mikoto did in the past, there shouldn't be a problem.

Perhaps my phrasing has caused you to misunderstand. It's normal for most people, I guess.

What I meant was, whatever the reason for Harima accepting, it's going to be good fodder for some Flaggers and SR readers to ponder about why he did so.

It's exactly part of her personality why she gives the cold shoulder to Tenma, because I don't recall stating otherwise (In fact, I didn't even state that before.) I can't entirely explain why, but Ojou does give me that impression that she wouldn't really care for the minor incidents from her friends. 'If she thinks she is betrayed, then she would act that way' was what I meant.

If things do get cleared up though, we're in for another reset...Though I do hope there can be some notable progress along the way instead.

Well, it's not too hard to see why you would expect that. Eri puts in a lot of devotion into her personal relationships. If you look back, every time one of the girls has a personal crisis, Eri is usually the first one to step in (such as during Mikoto's breakup, Akira's playwriting, or Tenma's early situation with Karasuma). It's to be expected that she takes betrayal pretty hard, given the amount of emotion that she puts into her friendships. That comes hand in hand with a number of the qualities that make her so likable.

In fact, if you look back, most of Eri's initial feuding with Harima was caused by that early betrayal with Tae ("...and you said you liked curry").

A resolution between Tenma and Eri need not reset things, so long as it doesn't happen immediately.
