    Never mind i was confused by the whole thing anyway.


    I doubt it will become like Tenchi Muyo. Tenchi is a harem anime, while School Rumble is not. Harem anime like Tenchi focus on who the guy chooses in the end, while School Rumble has been about unrequited love.

    People seem to have trouble realizing that School Rumble is not a harem series; I blame it on the excess of harem anime floating around right now.
    Well if a classic harem triangle forms, Eri->Harima<-Yakumo. With Eri<-?Harima?->Yakumo, it would resemble the situation Tenchi has been in for the last...oh...decade. lol

    Its totally a hypothetical situation.

    I agree too many people think this is a harem anime though, definitely not the case. It doesn't center around one guy that has 2+ women infatuated with him for apparently no good reason lol


    Well, that's one of Flag’s better advantages. I'd be very worried if Tenma actively started pursuing Harima.
    Indeed.

    The problem is that Tenma won't be returning his love at this rate. So where to go from there? Especially if Tenma never ever feels affection for Harima, whether she gets to be with Karasuma or not.

    Where to go from there indeed, in my opinion, given the circumstances, the chance he ends up alone is the greatest out of all the factions. Let's say he gets rejected, it's just seems pretty off to me at least that Harima would just turn to some other girl just like that (like what happens with rebound relationships,..........but not really). But that kind of ending, even if it supports one faction over another, it won't be satisfying to me.

    That's pretty much a sad note about SR. Lots of one-sided infatuations, and KJ can't satisfy every single character happy at the same time. One's got to give. And if that's the case, I think that person should be Harima. (seriously, who wants to see a girl have sad end? they would be put under "anime characters who can't catch a break"---Sacchin~ from Tsukihime comes to mind, Kolox would know =D)

    Think about whom Harima represents: Jin Kobayashi. If Harima ends up with nobody, it’d be like Kobayashi was saying he can’t get a girlfriend. That alone convinces me Harima is going to end up with someone. Never underestimate the ego of man.

    Also, I don’t think Kobayashi wants to disappoint the majority of his fan base by giving Harima a life lesson; you wouldn’t be the only one upset with that kind of ending.

    Actually, Kobayashi can satisfy almost everyone in the story by simply getting Harima to like Eri instead of Tenma. It’s the most direct path to satisfying everyone, although shifting Harima’s interest from Tenma to Eri would take some work. Luckily for Flag fans, Kobayashi has spent the last sixty chapters working on it nearly exclusively, and isn’t showing any signs of changing that.

    Hmmm..., judging by the definition of villain flying around in this thread, I guess then it is safe to assume that Karasuma is a villain, since that it seems that the only purpose he had in School Rumble is to become the greatest obstacle ever for Harima's love of Tenma. And Harima is, without a second of doubt, is a much more of an important character in School Rumble than Karasuma, which in many ways we could emphatize much much more than the odd turtle-curry-lovers guy.

    ....

    I guess Tenma could be called a villain too, since she is practically the biggest obstacle for the..., um, ..., main character (Eri) to achieve her love for Harima. Since she's constantly in the main character's way by being the one and only person that Harima really fell in love with. Since, of course, it is in fact easier for us readers to emphatize with Eri much, much, more than Tenma.

    ....

    Anyway,

    Cheers.

    PS: Oh, and liekimhung, do I really sound like an American English person? Hahaha..., well, thanks anyway for your comments dude. Its great to have a fellow countrymen lurking in the same forum in the Internet

    Actually yea he could be considered as such in some occasions...but the problem is that no one knows what his intentions or interests truly are...beyond curry, manga, and dressing up in strange costumes.

    Well thats exactly what she is to Eri, an obstacle, but only because Harima likes her and she is totally ignorant about it. Her interests on the other hand aren't clashing with that of Eri's, Tenma isn't in pursuit of Harima. In fact, we know that Tenma cheers Eri on.

    So, you do agree that if we all are trying to adhere strictly to the definition of a villain in this thread, we could also classify Tenma and Karasuma to be one of them? Or do you not?

    Well yeah, at first I want to type it like you did, but in the end I changed my mind since it seems that there's a lot of School Rumble fans out there that think Eri is the sun which all School Rumble's planets revolved around. That Eri is the central figure of all School Rumble's characters.

    ...

    Anyway, I think everyone, or anyone, including me, should stop flaunting around words such as "villains". Ultraness might think of a different meaning when he--or she?--posted the word, but like it or not, that word imply something really negative. In all honesty, do any of you automatically think of Ultraness' definition of the word when the word itself first appeared? I think it would be safe to say that, logically, the very first thing that existed in everybody's mind when that word appeared was that the definition of the "classic villain"--you know, the evil guy/girl, the bad people, stuff like that.

    ...

    Cheerio.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    I mean no disrespect or offense to you by saying this, but you really have no capacity whatsoever to state that. Since, you know, you are not Jin Kobayashi, you don't know him, you can't read his mind, and you are not the person he confided his secrets with. Harima ended up with no one is certainly a probability, and you being "convinced" of something else doesn't automatically refute that simple fact.

    "Satisfy almost everyone?". So you say.
