Bad memories will be replaced by sweet love!
Masaru and Nakamura, as true samurais, will give thier lives for thier masters! If they would interfer, Eri can just order them to perform seppuku. Easy.
Cute little girls - it's just a teenagers' attachment. When he'll grow up (and he will) his tastes will change for sure. Gentleman's choice shall prevail!
Harima is a good boy - he doesn't even know what 'rock' is. He needs a guide in a ways of love - I hardly can imagine Yakumo or Tenma in this role.
With too much cakes you become fat.
A battlefront changed - It seems I will need to defend from Argenta-dono counters and parry all Sir Reinard-Fox attack. A great battle indeed...
Capture the Flag
May it be that this is teenager fantasize,but.. he is an teenager and It won't change so quickly. Also, Yakumo has many forms - of mature woman with glasses (School festival) to Sexy dynamite (Manga Help: after Tenma's birthday) and of course seriously cute "I..I.Lov..Love you" (Manga Help: Sleepover)
Yakumo itself isn't strong enough to capture Harima's heart. It seems she needs Sensei who would taught her techniques - right now her ESP power are only 10 % of what true ESP can do (read : Melancholy of Suzumiya Haruhi)
What lot's of people doesn't notice, is Tenma's charm. Maybe her body isn't attractive, but her honesty and extraordinary way of living makes people extreamly attracted to her. Moreover, her pure heart who can mostly think of positive and kind things is what makes people fell in love with her.
I am the pioneer, the one who creates and experience it first and share with others
Flag - escape!
While having so much forms, in reality we have only one Ya-chan - this one
Other her forms are just a simple pretense. And among all the ways to win Harima's heart pretense is the worst - she hated Eri for that so, obviously, he won't like it in Yakumo too (of course not hate Yakumo but still). In front of Harima Eri si always the same, she do not pretend anymore - the pureness on her heart will break the ice of Harima's soul.
Her heart is pure indeed - too pure. Without noticing she may hurt Harima badly, making him think "What do I do here?"
Most simple attack ever
Tell me, just tell me - after watching this picture and other one with Yakumo - do you actually need more ?? If you like someone and she likes you, moreover she is a total babe - what are you waiting for ?!
It's just Harima to stupid to notice that she could be something more than just a friend and that he actually need a girl like this.
Surely, Tenma being so similar with Harima can be a double-edged sword - they could have no secrets between each other and their life could get boring.
But here you have Eri, who has the same temperament as Harima, which is also a double-edged sword. A choleric and another choleric won't ever find compromise and they will quarell a lot. And the saying that more the pair is quarrelling the hotter it is doesn't always work out. Someone needs to take the compromise - who ??
(choleric,if it exist in english, is a type of temperament (melancholic, sanguine, phlegmatic) which mostly acts on his feelings - and they can easily go out of control)
Yakumo has a little bit bad personality for relationship - she would easily become someone's servant and maid and babysitter. Because she keeps her opinion for herself and hardly ever can lie (it happened 2 in whole manga - both for Harima's sake). If she got in relationship with some bastard, she would use her and make her miserable,but if it's Harima - I think it could be ok. Because both of them needs themselves, the one who needs a little support and the other one who wish for a praise - a satisfaction that she actually helped the person she likes.
Harima is watching taht picture for a long time already, but nothing happened. If he loved her he would start going out with her in the first volume - I doubt that she could have misunderstood his confession (i'm talking about it coz he confessed to Tenma in first volume - so if his target was Yakumo he would have confessed to her too). But he doesn't love her. At least for now. (2 last lines goes for Eri as well of course).
Well, it is not very good of course - two cholerics togather - but it can work out. Which one wil take a compromise - only time can show.
Yakumo is a perfect servant - she can always cheer you up, help you when you need it - it will be perfect for me (I said i liked Eri because she is blondie, not because of her personality), but not for Harima. To my mind, he needs someone who will always inspire him, feed him with energy or else he'll forget about his work (manga or anynthing else) and will return to being a deliquent-like guy. Yakumo is to delicate for that - she can serve, not inspire. Harima needs fire near him, which will inflame him, burn him and make to work. Eri is such flame.
I, Rakk the Harbringer, sacrifice my left arm and my loyalty to Onigiri (oni also mean demon) Anyone attack me will be the trigger for a painfullest war because we fight to live, not to runaway.
Justice never exist, we are the one that create our own justice.
Welcome, Sir Rakk of the Harbingers - we welcome another Onigiri supporter.
We will be waiting for your first tactical attacks.
Human bending power
If it's about motivation - Tenma is better than Eri (not only for Harima). She is the girl who can cheerfully and honestly say "I know you can do it !!", "Let's work hard to achieve our dreams", "Keep working and I'm sure you will succeed".
Eri is ... weak. She doesn't have confidence in her own abilities. That's why she likes Harima so much. But If Harima would need a support, what would Eri do ?
"Don't worry, it will be better" - I can see her saying as much, without much of confidence. Or she could say "You already better than me, having some dreams your trying to achieve" - which isn't helpful because any guy would say "Of course not, you too surely will find your dream" and the discussion begins - so it would just became a great turn around from the person who needs support giving support the one who was supposed to give support (sounds stupid - and that was the point )
Yakumo may not be a great inspiration because of her slave attitude - but her action would never slow down or hinder her loved one. If he had some dreams, she would support him the way she always do it - giving him comfort and doing everything for him which isn't related with his job.
Oh, the second Warior of Onigiri Clan arrived. OK the, I'll use some granages first, hope you'll like them (evil glare):
This is a battle of images (so if rikem enetres is I'm done for).
And one little thesis (from biologically grounded BTW)):
If there is a choince between a girl whose phenotype is like yours (read: japanese) and a girl whose phenotype is different (read: north-european) the choice most likely be the second one.
Weakness -> Power
She is week indeed. But she is also a choleric who gets annoyed easily (I'm the one, so i know) and easily starts the fire of angryness whithin himself. And the view of Harima slacking off and getting too lazy will reveal her wrath for sure. Eri will just say: "What the fuck are you doing, idiot?!" Harima. of course would cry like "You are the idiot yourself" or sth, but this will make him work and everythink will end in a good way (read: Itoko).

I'm a choleric myself - if I get annoyed, I can't stop thinking about it and it disturbs my study. Thanks to my special person who is my oasis, I somehow can calm down. That's why I'm so stubborn about it, I experience it a lot and I think I have this similar with Harima.
.. true, the mix of genes can create a better race and all living forms have this urge to have strong offspring... but I think Harima is too stupid for that.
He is a delinquent-mangaka - Dominate allelum (Harima is AA) (from male or female - probably Harima's mother was some kind of warrior - look at their family, if they resemble somehow Itoko i wouldn't be surprised). Even Eri won't help it with her European origin ....

Hooray for us berserks!!!!
He is dumb all right, butit is the part where molecules, not brains, work. Well, I don't know this subjesct very well (excuse my mistakes if the would be found), so I'll start from far away. Oocyte, when it is about to get fecundated, won't allow any random spermatozoon to enter it; it will choose from those which were able to reach the 'meeting point' to find out the one which is having the most different genotype from oocytes genotype. And this different one will be allower to do the job. In the level of organisms the same things takes places. I don't know exactly which molecules transport the information about the possible partners genotype but some are for sure. This mechanism is the one which makes "magnet effect" happen. So Harima won't need to know about this law, he just needs to catch those molecules. Though like hell KJ would think about such things when creating his story
