    Well, the reply is a threat to Flag because had Eri had just stopped and given up after finding out about Harima's interest in Tenma, Flag would have come to a standstill. By wrecking the manga, we have a future incident to keep the momentum up. She'll have to try to make it up to him somehow, down the line.

    Everything boils down to having an available storyline to keep things moving. If you do, no matter how bad things get, you always have that next event to fix things. For example, that manga association was pretty important for Onigiri - as long as it was maintained, you knew KJ could start up an Onigiri chapter at any time by bringing Harima's manga into the picture. In the case of Flag, there is no steady source of upcoming events - we only have "random chance" on our side to push the two together. That's why events like the movie can serve as a safety buffer for later chapters - they're like a guaranteed source of Flag interaction.

    Oh thanks Swampstorm.
    I think i understand u'r meaning. By tearing up Harima's manga script, Eri will be prompted to make up to Harima thus increasing their interaction. If Eri just become standing still and do nothing about it then the chances are slim for them to interact cause maybe Eri would be shy or there is no condition that can force her to interact ( such as make up for tearing his manga off ).
    Is that right ?

    PS : Ajax --> Draw Eri ??? For what ? is it for the party ?

    Flag is in very little danger of being written out as Onigiri was, since the final arc will probably involve the return of Eri's true fiancee Shawn and his henchman Max and Harima fighting one or both of them; naturally, Eri would be at the center of the action. Right now, the only serious threats to Flag are Harima's continued fixation on Tenma and the possibility that Tenma's feelings towards Harima could change. However, the DVD plot becoming a love story between Harima and Tenma could easily either catalyze those threats or smother them, depending on how Harima, Tenma and Eri react.

    Tenma's reaction is particularly critical, as she has never really considered the idea of herself and Harima together.

    Was Shawn really the fiancee? At the end of Ch.181, it looked like he was one of several people who Max's group worked for. Also, Shawn seemed to be fairly focused on Karen, throughout the Kyoto arc.

    Whether that plotline gets worked into the final story arc or not, Karasuma is going to have to play a major role as well.

    Well, the biggest problem is finding a way for everything to work out without letting anyone go out of character. That's a tough task, with Harima and Tenma both dead set on their respectively conflicting goals.

    It was implied that Shawn was the true boss of Max's gang, and thus Eri's fiancee, by the heavy focus on him in the final page of 181. Also, Shawn was the only member of the British aristocrats (where do these Japanese stereotypes of Europeans come from, anyway?) to be introduced as more than a cipher; it wouldn't make sense for the fiancee to be one of the others who weren't properly introduced.. I think that Shawn's interest in Karen was just a minor thing used as an example of his playboy personality.

    Also, he just reeks of "Final Boss". Perhaps it's the resemblance to Sephiroth.

    Well, we didn't get to see the people to whom he was talking to, though, so we don't know if there were any familiar faces in that crowd. We know, for example, that Shawn previously knew Harry. He could just as easily know other members of the main cast. I don't have enough information right now to be sure of what his role really is. I'll be withholding judgment on this one until we get more clues.

    Well, during the Kyoto arc, every member of Max's gang had a counterpart in the regular cast - Harima, Hanai, Ganji, Imadori, and Yoshidayama. Based on the Karen event, Shawn was set against Imadori, with the focus being on Max vs. Harima. While Shawn may have been promoted in terms of importance since then, it's equally likely that he's just the messenger.

    I also had the impression that Max was just Shawn's lackey. Im pretty sure him messing around with Karen is just to show how much of a playboy he is, playboys don't really care about the fact that they're engaged.

    Agreed, besides wasn't Shawn flirting with many other girl before Karen?
