Onigiri was never gone, just like Weird Al Yankovic. He might only release an album ever 3 or 4 years, but each one is a success. And now he has his first "Top 10" with "Straight out of Lynwood."

Seriously though, Yakumo does things at her own pace and doesn't keep forcing herself towards Harima, like Eri. Only because Harima is stupid does Eri keep thinking that she keeps having victory upon victory. Take Eri's birthday. Harima didn't really want to go, but because of Karasuma's advice, he told Harima to act the exact opposite of how he feels.
Yakumo, on the other hand, hasn't once been rejected by Harima, even though she hardly makes any kind of move (ie. Wierd Al reference). In this latest chapter her shrimp/potatoes got a big thumbs up, at the new year's festival, or was it the day after, Yakumo paints a mustache on Harima and he grows it out again.
Now that we are pretty confident that Yakumo is indeed interested in Harima, her tactics could be considered guerilla love/warfare. She strikes quick, disapears, and then strikes again when it is most advantagous for her. So onigiri was never gone, it was just lying in wait for it's next move.
Exactly. The thing is we were not sure taht it will ever come back - too much time passed since it's last appearence.
And note that there is already special therad for this question.(though it doesn't mean that discussion about this matter in other threads is prohibited :))
I was pretty worried that something so great and full of missunderstandings (which makes SR so great) will just... dissapear.
I f you think about it, Harima has more "respect" to Yakumo than to Eri
("Even Imouto-san is asking me, guess I need to do it")
He respect Yakumo from the beginning because she's Tenma little sister and she always helps him (in manga and other stuff).

No emotions here, just fact statement. Like "Huh, i'm starving. Gotta go eat something." He may respect her for her help and her behaviour, but this is not enough for love.
When he thinks or talks about Eri he always expresses emotions. Negative or positive, but emotions always are there. It is very important.
