i vote for (d)
i do agree vekou,bout yakumo and eri.i did notice harima more nice to yakumo rather then eri.in the earlier story,eri do bully harima a lot.remember she shave his hair?
Wow, a great chapter i must says. Eri is heading toward the righteous way again . That slap is very decent to me too. May the slap becomes something that awaken Eri's so she can "wake up" and say her true feelings.
Maybe it will be something like this :
Tenma : shocked and can't say a word
Yakumo : yelling at Eri and say that what Eri has said is very awful
Eri : Silenced, and thinks deeply.
Tenma : stops Yakumo and apologize and then she takes Yakumo away and leave.
Eri : still silenced in front of her house ...
If Harima gets in the fight, there are almost zero hope for Eri to get his support. Remember, Yakumo slaps Eri mainly because of Tenma waiting in the snow ? And when Harima called Yakumo, Yakumo didn't say "What, Harima-san is with Sawachika-senpai last night?". She says "Eh, Sawachika-san is not with nee-san yesterday ?" That show Yakumo is concerned more about her sister than the fact that Harima was with Eri the whole night.

i thought the slap was justified.
we all know that eri was trying to apologies, but thats cos we can read her thoughts, Yakumo can't, from her pov, her sister was being yelled at for doing nothing wrong. eri's last line could be an apology and it could be not, we don't know for sure. Eri tried to say sumthing rite but always changes her mind afterwards, what makes the last line any different? her pride could still get in the way.
i'm actually really peeved at the last few chapters, i've always liked Eri and Yakumo, and both characters, especially Eri has not been shown in a good light recently.
was i the only one who saw the slap coming?
it was quite obvious when Eri was still belittling Tenma(who's almost collapse form exhaustion and the cold) that Yakumo was going to get physical (i actually thought she was going to pull tenma back).
if u think back to the events before, i'm not one that knows SR off by heart, but i do remember two incidents when Yakumo reacted physically.
the first was when Hanai went to ask her to join the dojo at the very start, he belittled Tenma in his thoughts, so Yakumo attacked him.
when they were at the festival and Eri said sumthing about Tenma, Yakumo challenged her to a match (that batting game) and she was very forward on wanting to punish Eri (painting her face black).
Yakumo loves her sister alot, and to her her sister is the best, anyone who mistreats her sister in front of her always ends up on her bad side, and she attacks.
it was very 'in character' of her. if she had stood still without doing anything, that would have been out of character.
and i don't think her anger had anything to do with Eri and Harima going out. her reaction to the news was only about her sister.
i believe the slap was well deserved and also used well. yes, voilence doesn't solve anything, but in this instant it was necessary.
the current problem with Eri is that she's thinking too much into the current situation. hopefully the slap would jolt her back into the past where her and Tenma are friends so she won't be going on and on about sumthing she can't get her head around. its only confusing her and making her react badly.
i doubt there would be a cat fight or anything of the kind. i think there would be silence and Tenma fainting, she was on the verge of fainting throughout the chapter, and yakumo would just take her home. and no one will find out about the slap (not even Tenma), Eri will then apologies to Tenma and they go back to being friends.
while Eri and Yakumo continue their silent rivalry like in the earlier chapters before they cleared up the misunderstanding bout yakumo dating harima. then there will come a chapter like that of the school fest where they will duke it out once more and return to being unconcerned of each others existence.
gosh...my two favorite characters have no future. so much for my support of the Bloody Mary faction.
I actually could see Yakumo getting really serious right know - she is at her limits of "perfect nice girl" here. (everyone, who supress their feelings like that can explode, but it's not a good thing)
Haha i don't agree with you two liek and tieuyeunu.
Everything Eri said and what Yakumo did were both the right things to do . In fact i am happy because they did those things. It showed their character development in an positive ways and i don't think either of them should be regret about those actions. Especially Eri. But an apology will need for keeping their relationship.
Haha seemed everyone is blaming Eri so carelessly. No one trust in Tenma's words? Don't you guys (or gals)ever think Eri doing all of these on purpose?
PS:everything up to now based on theory, have to wait for next chapter to decide anyway. Still I think Eri will walk away, rather than "backfire"
But even Eri was surprised at how harsh she was being to Tenma. Tenma's words about how, "Eri-chan is a good person," were so sad and blindly faithful that they suggested the opposite is true, at least in this situation with respect to Tenma.Haha seemed everyone is blaming Eri so carelessly. No one trust in Tenma's words? Don't you guys (or gals)ever think Eri doing all of these on purpose?
And I think that the proud Ojou-sama will not tolerate a slap in the face from her junior and rival, and will strike back immediately. Eri could walk away, but I doubt that she will be calm enough to in this situation. Also, without an apology to Tenma, even walking away isn't a good reaction.PS:everything up to now based on theory, have to wait for next chapter to decide anyway. Still I think Eri will walk away, rather than "backfire"
Oh, she is doing this on purpose - no doubt about it.
So she will walk away means the idea that Eri will apologize Tenma after getting slapped will backfire.

well actually chapter 210 shows that harima is finally seeing eri as a girl, when before it was "annoying spoiled princess" in 210 he was actually thinking of her as a girl, which is why he got embarassed when they went to the love hotel, so maybe he's starting to develop feelings for her and will support her if he got involved
oh, and i actually qute like the recent developments, because kj is showing the bad sides of both eri and yakumo, which makes them more human and also teaches us never get in the way of a girl in love
