Whoever fights monsters should see to it that in the process he does not become a monster. And if you gaze long enough into an abyss, the abyss will gaze back into you. - Friedrich Nietzsche
Harima linked to Eri's father by curry or meat and potato stew??? lol.
No way theres such a thing as an Electra complex in that case... and by Elecra complex I think it might be taking it too far.
All I said in one of the threads is that Harima kinda looks like Yakumo and Tenma's father. So that sparked a reason why Tenma said I like you... in the first first episode of school rumble when she was sleeping, not because she loved her dad ewww but because she missed him. "although I dont know wether she said I love you or I like you... the translation is the key" and Im not talking about the episode where both are dreaming. IM talking about the episode where he explains how everything started. The episode where Harima gets the scar by saving tenma.

I think you are missing the connection.
Yakumo seen her father when Harima was sleeping on the desk (back when she brought him into their house) and in I believe a later character we see Yakumo and Temma back when they were younger were Temma destroyed a book that Yakumo got from her father and she getting very upset about it.
It does not mean Yakumo have a Electra Complex but it can mean she does see Harima as her father and since she was very close to her father she loves him as "father" and not as "men" but cannot see that.
It's actually more of an issue of if Yakumo develops a romantic interest in Harima because she views him as her father, then the Electra complex issue comes up.
But even there, a discussion of the complex isn't really necessary. If Yakumo develops a romantic interest in Harima because she views him as her father, then it would be a sign that she doesn't love Harima for who he is - she would only be interested in the fact that he resembles someone who she does love.
The Electra Complex issue is irrelevant to a discussion on Eri's relationship with Harima, because we've seen that she is attracted towards Harima even when she isn't aware of his identity (during the Omiai arc). As such, we know for a fact that she loves him for his innate personality, rather than an image that she has projected on to him.
well this comes up made me think on shool rumble yakumo and tenma parent havent appeared or we dont know if they are dead on not, if they are dead or far away maybe yakumo just missed her father and reflect to harima but i think it has nothing to do with the issue of her attraction to harima it has something to do on that episode where she told sara
The part where she passes out... and hugs Harima in the middle of her dream... yes, it looked like she was gonna kiss him in the lips but I think it was just gonna be a hug or kiss on the cheek... thats what I was talking about not Yakumo... but at the same time... I dont know if you ever heard that most girls usually choose their partners with somewhat similar characteristics as their male progenitors... A.K.A. fathers... I dunno... but NOW you are more than free to contradict me on that part with Tenma hugging Harima
Sorry but the only dream I recall is Harima dreaming that Temma is dreaming about him, waking up and then realizing she loves Harima, the chapter is quite clear its Harima dreaming.
So far the only real romatic scenes with Harima and Temma were the train and Harima hugging Temma saying "I am sorry" because he broken her curry plate.
I really do not see Temma seeing Harima as "father", she is pretty much seeing as a "monkey" most of the time.
^That's the special chapter that was included in volume 2. It was animated in the first season of the anime. I downloaded all my SR from Stop Tazmo and never knew about that chapter until a few weeks ago. I always thought that episode was a filler.
Back on topic...
I wonder what Tsukamoto Daddy did for a living. Was he at that desk because he was working? This makes me think he is/was a writer, which is very simular to what Harima does as a mangaka. And for some reason I think he was the author of Yakumo's "Lost Little Ghost Girl" book (I think that was what it translated to), so he might do illustrations as well. If that were true, then Yakumo definitely has a Electra complex.
