any guesses on whos coming to visit poor Harima in the hospital? a school nurse perhaps? :D
I would like too see her after such a long break, though it wil most likely not happen :( And we already know names of 2 visitors.Quote:

Remember, the element of surprise is crucial, and it's only present if Harima gave up.
Nothing changed form volume 2 (?), when Tenma came to hospital after Harima was hit by the truck - expept for the fact that back then he tried to confess. So i don't think that it is that much of a high point (although nothing prevents Harima from thinking that it is) - Tenma is Tenma as always - her friend is hurt at her sight -> she helps. Same as in situation when she tried to help Ichijou to get Imadori - Harima is not special here.Quote:
It wouldn't be a surrender if Harima loses interest at this point since he would have rejected Tenma on a relatively high point for Oudou (Tenma went out of her way to visit Harima at the hospital; Harima should be jumping with joy),
Depends on how you judge about this lowest point - Harima was actually troubled enough to forget about his "avoid ojou" tactics and play active part. I'm not sure if this is that much of low point if we look from this position - perhaps it's otherwise. The fact of Eri dissapearing from the screen (why - we don't know - it is her own desision or KJ just wanted to focus on Oudou for now) doesn't mean that Flag is dead. We still do not know what Eri think about this scene and can't assume that she is smashed by Harima's "rejection".Quote:
while it would be a surrender if Eri gave up since Chapter 217 was one of the lowest moments for Flag. This difference is what makes me think it's possible, if not probable, Harima no longer loves Tenma and that it's not lame if he no longer does.
Yeah, now it sounds different. This hospital moment was a great chance for Harima, but he missed it. You are right, it is not like Harima. Taking a break from a fight after losing a battle to Karasuma and suffering phisical pain, huh.Quote:
What matters is that it would, or should, be a high point for Harima. I guess I wasn't specific enough in my last post. I regret using faction names instead of mentioning the highs and lows refer to the characters.
Well, I'm still not sure how Eri feel and what she thinks about this episode. I'm not sure if she understood what Harima was saying - although yeah, i find it strange if she didn't - but her reaction was way too calm and her face afterwords was not in pain either. I would prefer to wait for her next appearence to judge about her current feelings.Quote:
I guess I shouldn't have called it a low point for Flag, since I meant it's a low point for Eri (although the two mean much of the same thing).
