    Wow, some pretty powerful things were said in the latest batch of releases. Harima had the most emotional lines with, "Would you mind not acting so familiar to me?" and when he was talking to Yakumo, "Sure, I have time now."

    As reinard-fox put it, Yakumo was looking for stability, but it seems that Harima is looking for something to cling to as well. I'm not saying that something IS Yakumo, but the possibility finally exists now.

    The same could be said about Eri too, but her motives are kind of at odds right now. In 254 she thought to herself "Hige, I don't think you understand Tenma." I believe in 255 when she tells Harima to go with Tenma, Eri is setting him up for failure (or maybe I should say setting him up to learn the truth, either case I don't think bad of her), but then she sends Yakumo to tag along as well. To me it seems that Eri wants Yakumo to be Harima's support when Oudou falls apart.

    Out of everyone here: Eri seems to be having the most troubled intrapersonal conflict, Yakumo looks like she is willing to take small steps of progress, and Harima by far needs direction.

    I guess Yakumo has more influence, Eri is just a walking catastrophe in Harima's eyes..

    And come on, if after spending with Eri so much they didn't even get near kissing, nothing can help them now..

    ^ There are time when he is grateful of her too, like the Xmas part-time job. He is also happy when Eri let Tenma walk with him.

    But of course, that why it is called love/hate relationship.

    Agreed, Harima needs someone to rely on too. Not so strongly as Yakumo though, considering he has always solved his problems in the past. And yeah, the possibility does exist. The question of chances is another story.

    Well, thats why I said "making him learn the truth" - setting up a failure sounds kinda evil .

    Yakumo gives us a clue about Eri's motives (chapter 255, page 6, bottom): according to her, Eri wants to settle everything here - not only Harima's feelings, but Yakumo's as well.

    True, but... I didn't notice Eri being in conflict with herself. Care to explain this?

    Hmmmm...but is Yakumo talking about Eri or her sister? Certainly it could be interpreted Eri planned this whole thing in a kind of "Let's give everyone a shot and see who Harima picks in the end" sort of way, but is that giving Ojou too much credit?

    However, Imoto-san could have been talking about her sister as well. Yakumo's thought "Let's settle this," could be pointed to her sister's "Then tell me what's really going on!" which could equal "Let's settle this, clear all the misunderstandings and say what you need to say!"

    Perhaps there was something that was lost in translation that clarifies to whom Yakumo was referring, but until it is explained to me I'm going to go with the one who was standing in front of Yakumo.

    True, but... I didn't notice Eri being in conflict with herself. Care to explain this?
    Does Eri still want Harima? That is the million dollar question. If she doesn't then there isn't any intrapersonal conflict to speak of. But if she does, why send Yakumo in the first place? Couldn't she just as easily said, "I'll go with you also to make sure Hige doesn't try anything funny" and then she would be the one close to Harima right now. Instead she told Yakumo "It works out, right?" That itself is a throwback to when Yakumo thought "The one who's most fitting for this person isn't me," in 216. But Eri has no idea that Yakumo is the one who told Harima that she has feelings for him, so it can't be said she was returning the favor. In my opinion it seems like Eri is the one trying to push for the opposing relationship.

    If that isn't conflict within herself then I don't know what is.

    I would think Eri still wants Harima, since she's visibly perturbed when he's handcuffed to Yakumo. As to why she would let Yakumo go with him, my guess is as good as anyone's. But as Yakumo put it, "this will really decide everything", so I'm guessing that's what Eri wants, to have end the whole issue decisively.

    In which case the better question is, what does Eri hope to gain from that? Harima, presumably, but she can't know for sure that it isn't going to backfire on her. Especially when the fact is that Harima likes Yakumo way better than Eri, which he's said to her face more than once.
    You make your face a mask. A mask to hide your face. A face to hide the pain. A pain that eats your heart. A heart nobody knows.

    True, I couldn't find anything that would make me 100% sure about who Yakumo is reffering too. I'll go with the one which I see to suit here the most

    Judging from the emotions Eri has shown during this trip I'd say that she still wants Harima. So, if my guess about "lets settle this" phrase is correct, there is no conflict here and Eri simply gambles trying to get rid of two opponents at once. If I'm wrong and Eri' despite her wish, is giving Yakumo a hand, then conflict is present. Since I see no way to solve a situation with that phrase I can't give a clear answer here either.

    I agree.

    Right now Harima views Yakumo as a little sister. Thats not the type of "like" Eri wants to herself.

    well I don't have much to say on my part.

    Anywayz is it me or am I the only one that feels SR will end relatively soon... next 20-40 chapters or so.

    And will tenma ever find out about Harima's true Identity?

    If it going to end, Harima's true identity would be revealed or at least explained in a sense that it would make Tenma understand his feeling. Even if it is not, there would be a scene for it to make a complete scene. It would go to waste if it is not shown.

    Anyway I hope SR not going to end so soon, maybe 100 more chapter would be great.

    I think Eri sent Yakumo to go with Harima because she thinks that Yakumo is the best choice to support Harima when he gets rejected. Eri knows how much Tenma likes Karasuma so she expects that Harima will only get rejected in this little trip.

    I'm hoping in the next few chapters that Harima does finally give up on Tenma and not bounce back after hearing Karasuma's condition. If he does Onigiri or Flag can finally start being finalise.
