Btw i haven't visit this forum recently, but since when everyone divide themself into Eri-supporters and Eri-dislikers? then debate in every issue and hate each other over that?
One of reason that i find SR oustandng to others is because i couldn't find a character that i can hate for more than half of a chapter, unlike others manga when they often put a bitch who will go around threw rumours or mess ppl date up so she can go out with that guy(freaking annoyed seeing them success).
You can't put the blame of Eri and Tenma feud into any character, because it was done by fate and a series of misunderstand or... by Jin in reality.
If Tenma was not so careless in going around without thinking and mess up people's stuffs (like during Eri's birthday), the whole manga will become boring, and HarimaxEri may not come together in the first place. Actually it will be not the same SR we know.
In contrast if Eri didn't give Tenma the cold-shoulder and the message "Do whatever you want" then the first thing come in my mind will be :"It is not Eri here. Jin probably messed up the story; and instead think of how to solve, he is doing an easier job :changing character 's personality" (it freaking annoyed also see some mangaka did that in other manga). I love misunderstand but i hate conflict. That's why it bugged me like hell, seeing people hate Eri or each other just because that how the story going.
PS:sorry for double posts but since it is too long to put in one and it about two different things also (i don't know where to post this actually)
