    Default Desire Climax. Kinda

    Up to this point I was sure that SR will end in few months, maximum at the end of a year. But now... Eri said that they "Should take it slowly". Her reasons for saying this probably came from those talkes with Akira, when an advise to take both goals in the same time was given. Eri probably means that she won't rush in getting Harima and now will move forward slowly, without making any risky moves.

    The question is: does KJ also plan to move forward slowly, making story longer and longer? Or it is just words of a character that do not have behind themselves any special meaning? Of course, nobody knows for sure, i just want to hear your opinions on this.

    I'm not sure if I want him to make this long or not. Story speed up in recent (20+) chapters, one faction died, another one is even less alive then it was and the third one seem to have its' success granted. If so, then, to my mind, it would be better to simply solve things in some fast way, wihtout stretching story making pointless filler-like chapters, since stretching would probably low manga's quality. On the other hand, I don't want one of my favourite manga's end too fast... What do you thing about it?

    I doubt it. I thought School Rumble was appoaching an ending before Chapter 227, and my opinion has not changed after reading it. For an ending, I don't think he'll go much further than showing the main pairing clearly has feelings for each other; or, I doubt he'll actually show it developing, choosing to end the series shortly after a confession.

    The second possibility seems more likely to happen to me. The question is, how long will series last untill confession? It is true that even without Eri's activeness Harima's shattered feelings can be directed at her simply by KJ's favourite train of misunderstandings, but this train can be pretty long too. Eri's participation is needed to make Harima sure about himself anyways.

    I don't think that Eri's words have special meaning beyond her own intentions. Usually when one character suggests that they take things slowly, it is when both characters are aware of their mutual interest but are not sure how to proceed. That is not the case here, since the relationship is still one-sided with Harima clueless on Eri's true feelings.

    Basically, Eri's words probably mean that she doesn't intend to try and rush things as she was doing from 196 or so onward. They don't apply to Harima; if he does fall for her in the remainder of School Rumble, they will probably get together quite quickly.

    I agree with it. Although I'm not sure if Harima can fall for Eri complitely without her doing anything at the finall stage.

    On the other words, Harima still needs a catalyst to make his love toward eri grow or to make Harima acknowledged that he loved Eri. And maybe Shawn will become that Catalyst in the end .

    I think that the manga will still last for at least half a year or a year more. KJ can prolonged the story by putting more concentration on other characters developments and not dragging Eri x Harima stories far longer than it meant to be, thus preventing the manga going to a bad direction IMHO.

    Yeah, Harima need help form outside to fall for Eri.

    Yeah, that's possible. Hence Flag will take it slowly.

    ^ I agree that Harima needs a catalyst to help them get together but I would want a finality with his feelings towards Tenma. The series will undoubtly keep going for awhile. until this events happen. ^_________^ MOAR SR!!!

    Im 1oo% sure the catalyst will be Eri's father or arranged groom...
    and Im confident that the only person I can think of with enough courage to take on the "Americans.. British, Brittons I dunno", Eris Father and the fiance is Harima Kenji.
    And yes... this trully supports flag...
    theres a reason why the British or Americans are there in Japan.
    "someone please make this clear for me, wether these fools are british/brittons or americans" .
    And I think there will be more developments and confrontations between the foreigners and Harima as the story develops...

    Furthermore, one reason why I think her father may be one of that "catalysts/obstacles" is because he is the one that arranged the marriage between Eri and the British guy, for this reason I think Harima will have to get rid of his current bad reputation and prove her father "and himself" that he is worthy enough to take her hand.
    I think Harima might have to face the Americans at one point or another.
    Especially the supposed fiance... I really wanna see that happening.

    Well, Tenma seems to think that Eri and Harima are taking things too quickly after Chapter 227. Eri may have mentioned taking things slowly to create a sense of irony in Tenma's misunderstanding.
