If Eri confesses to Harima First, before Harima confesses to Tenma, wouldn't there be some kind of time lag where Tenma, may or may not notice that Eri is no longer herself and worry about her and possibly spend most of her time comfiting Eri with the rest of her friends? She could possibly find out who Eri Likes (With comfirmation from Eri) and Tenma would possibly start to avoid Harima, decreasing his chances to find a good time to confess to tenma.
But Since We know how School Rumble is... Harima will try deperately find a way to confess to tenma before tenma confesses to karasuma... and accidently confesses Yakumo this time LMAO! or accidently confess Eri again....either, or is good lol be funny if he confessed to both of them at the same time.
If it about Tenma, I think it will take a long time before Harima do his confession (how many times actually had he tried to do it?). But Eri, I think she can do her confession at anytime she wants, she just have to wait the moment when she is just alone with Harima. About Yakumo, I think she will do her confession to Harima just after Harima rejected.
@ kniteowl: That time lag is possible, I agree. And will be quite rumbled for sure. Though I think that Tenma may also try to make Harima accept or at least give Eri a chance. Anyways, there will be even more rumble at this rate.
@ Snah: I doubt that Yakumo will confess that easily. She doesn't have that kind of character after all. She has developed, yes, but not that much to overcome fear that easily. As for Eri, i think she needs to become more desperate, mostly by seeing Harima X Tenma scenes of course. Only after that she'll be able to confess.
I'm not sure how responsive Harima will be to Tenma after he is rejected, it's questionable whether he will listen to Tenma whether or not he'll give Eri a chance. Unless it's rumble and he mis-understand Eri for Tenma.

Or Tenma, Mikoto & Akira Set up Eri and Harima
Tenma Phone's Harima: Can you please meet me at this location at 7:30?
Harima: YES WOHOO *DATE!!!*
*Harima ends up alone with Eri*
Harima: WHY! WHY! WHY DO YOU HATE ME GOD (or should I say KJ)... WHAT HAVE I EVER DONE! HOW CAN I ATONE FOR MY SINS!
Btw how would Yakumo React if Tenma Starts to support Flag, After Harima's Confession???
I'm not really so sure about Tenma supporting Eri - if Yakumo would make her feelings toward Harima more clear, at least to Tenma - whom will Tenma cheer for victory. I think what will happen in not that much of time is clash between Onigiri and Flag.
Onigiri ways is "Harima should stay like he is - that's all what I want"
Flag way is "Harima truly loves me - He should be with me"
Odou way is "I can't eat , I'm so full~~"
- obviously, everyone has a different point of view
- it can't end up with draw (neither of sides will be satisfied)
It will be Tenma to decide, who will be with Harima
a) Tenma goes for Harima :D
b) Tenma rejects Harima, support her little sister
c) Tenma rejects Harima, support her best friend
.. poor Tenma :D (and poor Harima of course)
If Tenma can't choose she could always support the kids meal faction, or join the monkey faction but that's extremely unlikely to happen, I'd doubt if any the girls are willing to share, even if Tenma and Yakumo are sisters.
Who do you think will confess first? Eri, Harima, Tenma or Yakumo? Lol they could all Confess Simutaneously
How about Iori now can transform into cute Human form. And with a very similar face with Tenma since she stays with her in long time. Then accidentally meet with Harima and ..... Harima now has his new love :p
After reading ch. 206 I can agree with bahamut_zero.
Iori is the one who have more chance end up with Harima then anyone else :D. It only can be if Iori is she. Did we know it sex?
But... Iori have a date when she switched with Tenma. I know, I know Hige thought that was Tenma but... it was date after all. :)
Iori is male If i remember correctly (someone already said that on this forum).
May be ya right and it is male. But it could be very funny and unexpected pair.
I don't know Harima will confess to her or not. Only KJ knows this. I think that if a plot will be developed in the same way than he must do it soon.
Most probable variant of confessin and result of it was wrote earlier by others.
