Mostly your right - and the mechanism is so perfect that even organism who live in the same territory (here : people from Japan) can create not a copy, but a mix-match of parents.
There is also the problem of dominating. When the the male and female cell is fused (making 1n +1n --> 2n) the fenotype informations need to join (for example: information about eye colour or skin). Eri, being already half Japanese and Harima being fully Japanese could actually 'cover' European fenotype informations (she does have information about more Asian colour of skin and Harima has only that one). Those could be uncovered in his grandchildren (could, doesn't need to).
Mechanism in joining genes are still a mystery for us (they normally search for corresponding one, if the can't they can mutate or become recessive or not join - which sometimes happens and many funny things happen - eyes are great example because from green eyed mother and brown eyed father you can have grey eyed son - so the information about what pigment should be produced needs to accustom).
The point is - It can all end up the same here And Harima's too stupid to even think about that (hmm, with whom i will have better children - with Yakumo, Eri or Tenma ??)
(Maybe we should send KJ some of our ideas - it could be really helpful for him )
Naaah, let's fuck
Or we can just send him some of our textbooks with underlined parts, which contain important info. (I can't imagine teenage guy thinking with whom of 2 girls will he have better children )
Sawachika group is damn famous. If Harima marries on Eri he'll automatically gain an attention of journalists - "How could a poor mangaka marry a doughter of billioner??!!" So - free commercial.
It doesn't matter when you choose which one you truly love of course, but it's a huge advantage if he 'll choose the right person.
Just to make it clear, I am not a pervert
Let's invite him to our "Itoko give-and-take" club Does anyone know how to write Japanese ??
(this sub forum has already created some traditions - pretty cool )
It may be an half-assed argument but every time someone becomes rich, he become less popular in some kind of jobs (for example : Rappers). If he got rich, people would stop reading his stuff (people jealousy's - it sometimes is a great factor - also based on SR itself see Harima's previous opinion of Eri - based only the knowledge she is rich).
Dark Witch v.s White Prince
1:0 - I'm still curious about that answer Yakumo gave Eri that time. But the point is... somehow Eri forfeited easily that time... I feel it was a great loss for Flag to just forfeit like that.
Oh well, just a biologist
Unfortunately, no. Hey wait, Sharingan Devil, who appeares in Painting from time ot time, is japanese. Maybe he will??
Pretty cool, yeah Biology grounded traditions...
Hm, true. But (if we are talking about crowed), as i can guess, jelousy will apear at the second time, while at first - interest. So if he would be able to write soemthing great at that very moment he has chances of becoming really famous and popular. Some people will stay jelous of course, but most of "readers" will admire his works (and buy them).
What did Yakumo meant will most likely reamin mystery forever. And Eri...well, at that time her character was no developed as much as now, so she just ran away like in Tae's case. In contrast now, she is ready to fight.
"Imouto-san, It seems we're going out" - that was great
Will Harima return to his ex-girlfriend ??
You say she is ready to fight... somewhat I agree she is more prepared than that time, but is she's going to be able to pull any attack. Her confidence were crushed twice lately - by Yakumo ("Harima-san_likes_shrimps" = "Know your place, shrimp") and by Harima himself ("There is no way I'm in love with that girl" ). Can she ?? That time she was weakened while fighting a weak opponent - Tae (which obviously can't be taken seriously, but still Eri had doubts).
Not an attack - I just feel that Yakumo loves Harima, although she doesn't really know what love is - that's why we have all those ghost and Iori chapters. I thought about it like this - Onigiri can't be dead because KJ spend too much time for it. I predict a new 'Ghost girl' chapter which can change Yakumo resolve.
Tenma as the queen of oblivion misunderstood the relationship between yakumo and harima, thus make yakumo thinks "nee-san thanks for your support".
seeing eri doing just as she pleased, yakumo beat her in both fighting drama and new year's game.
the mantra of the dark witch
with her charm yakumo gain controls of every single boy in school, creating a total chaos. which make harima realize "how much of a diamond yakumo is"
hey, can i join too? this looks fun.
Well, that is......WHAT THE HELL?! I would like too see Yakumo's thoughts about her "ex" social possition.
Now she won't hold back - not only because of her pride (No matter how stupid game is, I must win!) but also because she is desperate right now, the myth was destroyed by Harima himself, so she has no choice but to end it all. The question is, who she will fight - Tenma by trieng to grab Harima's attention as in previous chapters or Harima by dirrect attack - confession?
I'd like to see the ghost - and I'm sure we will. Though I think that her 3rd appearence is possible only when Yakumo will select between two choices: to continue fighting or not. And this "selection" is only possible after Harima gets somehow rejected by Tenma, I think.
Yes, Yakumo won back then, but what did she do to her victory? Nothing, it all went to waste. As for Eri, she was able to improve her relationships with Harima (a bit, but still - some 50 chapters ago it seemed totally impossible). Adn Yakumo...is just silently sitting in shadows, not even trying to fight.
Same goes to Eri - she is the True Queen of the school afetr all.
@ Zemaya: You are welcome!
AS for Harima it's pretty simple - since he doesn't pay a crap to others opinion (exept for Tenma) his "Yakumo's boyfriend" status doesn't bother him at all. And Yakumo...now she is serving Odou but who knows what will she do with it after Odou fails (if it will ever fail of course). I don't think that she'll take advantage of her current position, forcing Harima to go out with her. She is too kind for that - and besides it's obvious taht such a move wouldn't work out; it's pretty hard to make Harima do what he doesn't want to do after all - this far only Akira and Itoko were capable of it.
Ghosts and Flags
No, it is not dangerous, since Ghost Girl is just a index of Yakumo's feelings. With the help of her we can confirm Yakumo's interest in fighting or her withdraw from battlefield, thats all. GG doesn't actually influence any plot development. So if she appeares and Yakumo shows her determination towards GG then we can say taht true battle finally is about to begin, tahst all.
And why not? It just takes another form - here Yakumo is the main girl fro Harima and Tenma - the side one. The core is the same either way.
