yeah, come to think of it, seems like harima and eri are out of the picture.. it is quite possible that they skipped school, but for eri, it's highly unlikely, since she's not so problematic (yeah, right) these days.. is kobayashi-sensei just trying to slow down the development of the harima factions? or maybe kobayashi's really just buying some time to grow harima's beard..
come to think of it, harima's beard really grows quite faster than that of an ordinary human... he's beardless on a chapter, then he grows a beard the next chapter..
i really admire karasuma in this chapter. with only a simple sentence, he unites the class and captures tenma's heart.. he's so cool. too bad his coolness goes too extreme most of the time... ^_____^
