There are difference between being tsundere and complete asshole. Even Eri saw the difference, but that's barely an excuse.

One of those little things that you learn to pick up on through social interactions is that you just don't c-block a friend that you intend on keeping. Tenma knew that Eri loved Harima - she was the one who pushed Eri to ask Harima to stay over. Yet she suddenly gets the urge to start monopolizing all of Harima's time.
Do you remember what the girls did when they saw Tenma's interest in Karasuma? They found ways to bring the two together so that they could be alone. Ep. 10 S1 is a perfect example. And it's not that Tenma has a "monopoly" on Karasuma either - the girls tried to help out because they were Tenma's friends and it's the natural thing to do.
It's not an issue of Tenma being stupid or ignorant - it's simply the fact that Tenma does whatever she pleases, whenever she pleases. If she was the least bit considerate, then she would have been all the more sensitive as far as Harima was concerned. Yet I'm suddenly expected to feel some sort of sympathy when emo Tenma decides to go out into the snow of her own accord in a grand gesture of self-flagellation. Hurting yourself doesn't fix or resolve anything - you have to fix what you break. The simple fact is that by placing Eri in a guilt trip, the real problem was never addressed, and Tenma is still every bit as inconsiderate as ever.
On one hand you claim that the reason why SR is so weak right now is because Eri isn't as charming as she was before. But given that Eri hasn't made more than the odd cameo over the past 20 chapters or so, don't you think that the problem lies more in the characters that are "supposedly" holding up the story for the time being?
The only two characters who have done anything remotely heroic lately are Karasuma, for bravely keeping that secret to himself all this time in the face of his love for Tenma, and Eri, for trying to give Harima an opening to go with Tenma in full knowledge of the fact that it could doom her own relationship with him. So your blame is misdirected.
What is Mr k function? and What is Miss E function? From my point of view, their function is simply adding the third person view to the situation. They both get sympathy from people and yet they already get more that they were meant to be. Mr K is a variable in the mathematical equivalent. Miss T in other hand don't have any rival for Mr K, so she would not understand how its is like to have somebody you love loving another person(you might wonder how Miss T will feel if Miss Y love Mr K too?,who will sacrifice for the greater good ...lol and meh.). Miss Y?You all should understand her function if you read carefully from her first appearance.
What I do agree is, Mr K know everything that happening,who like who (like the James Bond girl in SR). What he doesn't acknowledge is why he is there.
woot,well,next chapter is the ONE
@Swampstorm : As far as I see reason, I don't see justification - because there is none. As much as Tenma might appear inconsiderate, she is very considerate for Harima, who is her friend and has as much right to talk with him as anyone else - especially since Harima appears to want to talk with her. Eri had lot of chances to confess to Harima, Tenma never tried that so her motives about Harima were obvious.
And as far as we need to go for this whole tsundere situation - even Rui-clone can be jealous of precious "Ikari-kun" or doctor Ikari and act under emotions like slapping people. That doesn't mean she has a right to do it nor it's appealing. See, Yakumo slapped Eri and that wasn't appealing too - actually that whole situation was a mess to begin with... and now the manga looks like "Nothing really happened - we are starting from point zero" - at least in Harima case...
..because in Tenma case it was starting to move - but move in most boring way, because every Karasuma x Tenma situation looked like just an add-on to Harima x Eri or Harima x Yakumo, both pairings which in my opinion look more like ex-ex v.s ex-ex.
^an add-on. Eri knew she was wrong at the end. I was hoping that she was gonna apologies but it never happened. Anyway she did felt guilty at the end. So she did repent on her actions.
The Karasuma x Tenma pair has always been too perfect before. The only problem that it had was Karasuma leaving but now it looks like its going on a direction that is too hard to predict. Hopefully its gonna get a happy conclusion. Both for Tenma and Karasuma. even if they don't end up together.
Tenma going to America - it's not like there are any parents to object it Harima fallowing her using Eri help, ending up getting lost...
LOL! feel like reviving the "Parents-thread"?
If Tenma does ends up following Karasuma to America. SR will be ending soon. Now thats Tenma's gone. Harima will definitely be more open-minded to other people's affection. Yakumo or Eri. ^^
^ahh, Harima still in trouble though, he has to choose.keh keh
Quad love have many problem ..wait pentagon...wait is it hexagon? ahh nvm
Harima: My first love has ended and now a new love is burning within me
"Unknown girl": Hario~! <3
