I would say now, it is a 50:50 for yakumo and eri. I am little dissapoint with chapter 198. only a very little progress with Eri. Yakumo already reached a very close relationship with him. Harima can tell all his idea, dream and even share his secret with Yakumo, but Eri..... . Still need more progress
mmmm dont think so ch198 was ALOT of progress towards Harima getting over his idea of Eri as a princess, i think once harima's vision of Eri as an "ojou" is dispelled and sees her as the type of person she really is behind that proud persona, surprisingly insecure and vulnerable, their relationship might hit a big milestone... also things could develop much more quickly since Eri is actively looking for him
right now Yakumo doesnt really actively look for encounters with Harima at all, shes focused on taking care of Tenma because its clear Tenma is #1 in her life
but im sure something will happen soon between Yakumo and Harima again, it usually happens like this Eri gets a moment then Yakumo etc.
Most likely. Too bad Yakumo is that passive about Harima. If things remains as they are now she will never get him.
id say thats the biggest problem, you see Yakumo isnt the type to go after guys right? shes to nice and shy, in addition shes naturally a boy-magnet
it just turns out though that the best man happens to be immune to her magnetic beauty lol
either he goes after her by some strange happenings... or she decides (also by some event) to take initiative ... maybe the ghost girl convinces her somehow who knows
otherwise its a farcry for a YakumoxHarima relationship
To my mind that Ghost Girl confirmed that Yakumo loves Harima.
We have to wait for:
1) Yakumo takes initaitive
2) Something as always in SR happens that will make Harima and Yakumo closer as man and woman not as friends.
Or else this relationship won't grow to anything bigger then "just friends".
the Ghost Girl incident also solidified the fact that Yakumo may love Harima but that she still puts Tenma as priority (probably will stay that way until Tenma can stand on her own two feet, as it is right now Tenma seems to need Yakumo around lol)
It seems that Tenma need something like 200-300 years to learn how two stand on her own feet. At this rate Yakumo will be alone forever. And ghost girl said it too. It looks like something really serious must happen to Tenma and Yakumo for Yakumo to understand that her own business is not less important that her sisters business.
If Tenma able to be Karasuma's girlfriend, then everything will be clear.
Harima is broken heart, Yakumo now able to free from his sister (Tenma will have more attention to her boyfriend), Eri will have more chance to be closer with Harima, and so on2
