Title: I hereby proudfully announce the first *Harima Kenji*- fanclub
Post by: Private Prinny on March 06, 2005, 09:05:24 PM
Well, as said before,  I am the only member (at least now;D ) and so call me  the Founding-Geezer
Hereby I invite you all, to join in!

Because....I pity(?) him so much! He is such a looser with the sharp misunderstanding-skill!
He is just like me! Well, really!
Although I am one of the few people in my large friend-circle who doesn´t own a motorbike, but I also have this sad expression-look, think way to much about the girl I love(also pretty one-sided:-[  ), and make the same mistakes and misunderstandings!
He is just my super-anti-hero!
Way back it was Vash the stampede in Trigun, but he was to damn silly!

So, why am I so unlucky and unskilled when it comes to sigs- and avatar-making?

I really like the v04 cB11 p02 -picture of him in the top left corner so much!
I sat here today and laughed  histerically about twenty minutes ,with no obvious logic reason,  my a$$ of, when I saw that expression on his face! This remebers my quite a lot of me, when I look in the mirror-windows, just when I arrive at  my university every morning.  So, now I now, why my folks call me" Mr. Schlechtgelauntheit" <-- Mr. bad mood/ mr. sad mood!

So want to stop my hole from blubbering so much nonesense here?
Make me a good Harima-Sig! 
insane laughter echoes arround

Oh, and a big
Hurra!
[/size][/color] to all you yanime-staff for your work, and especially for this series!!

Well I hope your club goes well, cuz I sure can say that I support Harima anymore (ever).  Any guy who is hung up on Tenma over all the other hot girls is well...not cool.  But up to that point I still felt a little sorry for him UNTIL he turned down the Nee-san that he was staying with!  Just no.  Nee-san, Akira/Yakumo (I can't decide which is better...shut up I like Akira!), and Eri...in that order.  Harima still has a way to redeem himself, and he better do it.  Sorry I can't join your club dude, but good luck to it :P  BTW, I like your sig.  NIS games rule!

Harima truly shines at being the main character of SR. His tendency to mess up or misunderstand anything is both touching and hilarious. Thus I'll proudly support your club!
The rest of the male cast is rather good as well.

Any guy who is hung up on Tenma over all the other hot girls is well...not cool. But up to that point I still felt a little sorry for him UNTIL he turned down the Nee-san that he was staying with! Just no. Nee-san, Akira/Yakumo (I can't decide which is better...shut up I like Akira!), and Eri...in that order.

Well, I would say it's a matter of personal preference. I, for instance, prefer the dense and funny Tenma over all those you quoted, hands down. Plus I think she is well matched with Harima, as they are both champions of utter stupidity :P

I will join this fanclub of the great (meaning sometimes pathetic) Harima Kenji.  you must admit the animal thing is awesome.  also all of us know he is alot kooler than the "other".  he shall not be named
Title: Re: I hereby proudfully announce the first *Harima Kenji*- fanclub
Post by: cccnnn on March 08, 2005, 05:39:57 PM
Harima is one of the coolest male leads in manga.  Typically in romance/comedy you have loser guys or average guys or average losers getting hot chicks, and then you come to SR and it's a nice change to have a hilarious dumbass delinquent going after a not-so-hot chick.

Yah, i'll join this club..but only after I join the Eri fanclub XD
Title: Re: I hereby proudfully announce the first *Harima Kenji*- fanclub
Post by: Tenchisama on March 10, 2005, 06:31:46 AM
ok I will join because he is cool and he has a motercycle althought I must admit
he was kinda dumb to turn down nee-san but otherwise is cool
Title: Re: I hereby proudfully announce the first *Harima Kenji*- fanclub
Post by: Private Prinny on March 10, 2005, 09:05:37 AM
Wow? It actually worked?
I thought, I was the only one who like him!
And it IS refreshing, not like Ichigo, open sesame ranma,etc...
a romantic/comedymanga, where not the average boy is piled under hot woman until volume 3 or so!

you are right!

nah, not my tipe! But, the panel, who harma confesses to her, and then is pulled away from the other girl, where eri kicks him.....that expression on her face!  :o ;D ;D
Who of us would do the same, and which one has actually lied?
LOL!

BTW, I like your sig.  NIS games rule!

Yeah! Which did you play?

"Who of us would do the same, and which one has actually lied?"

Yeah that was what I said when Harima turned down Nee-san (the name is finally given but I forgot it). :P

As for the NIS games, I have Disgaea, La Purcelle, and Phantom Brave.  Wanted to try Rhapsody for the PS1 but that's impossible to find now a days.  Can't wait for the other two to come out this year.

Yeah...try to find Rhapsody in europe...
better chance on winning the jackpot somewere.
Anyway, you mean Makai Kingdom and Atelier Iris?
Title: Re: I hereby proudfully announce the first *Harima Kenji*- fanclub
Post by: shinaku on March 11, 2005, 09:21:10 AM
Yup, Makai Kingdom in June, and Atelier Iris in the fall.  Makia Kingdom looks really cool since it's like a hybrid of Phantom Brave and Disgaea.  Cool artwork too.  I don't much about Atelier Iris other than it's a not really a strategy rpg and the item creation concept.

Well, thought of openeing a thread about emberassing things....
but there is already one...

Wanted to open one ,because especially two things what happened to harima actually happened to me too, in nearly the same way....
well, now it is pretty obvious why I am a single?  ;D :-\

Why haven't I replied to this thread yet? Oh well. Now I have replied. And I think Harima could be the best male lead character in any manga like this that I've ever read. He's so.......'not your typical nerd that somehow gets all the beautiful women to fall in love with him even though there's nothing great about him' kind of guy. ::)

Well Roots, let's do a little Compare and Contrast between you and Harima to see why Harima gets all these hawt girls and you don't.

                   Harima                                 vs                                   Roots:
-badass delinquent                                                   -a computer engineer (who goes, "Nii!")
-can beat up knife-wieldingYakuzas                             -can beat up: old ladies, parapalegics, little kittens, and (maybe) girl scouts
-complimented by hawt Onee-san on his looks              -complimented by Cgoten on his looks (in a prank phone call)
-athletic                                                                  -he does cross-country running

and the defining moment of this comparison:

-is a fictional character in a fictional literal masterpiece     -a fictional online entity

-can beat up: old ladies

Hey, that is quite a skill! Definetly not something to make fun of!
Wish I can do the same thing!  ;D
Even when my life would depend on it, I couldnt do that!

Man, Roots! Are you routhless!
Title: Re: I hereby proudfully announce the first *Harima Kenji*- fanclub
Post by: Draconis on March 17, 2005, 12:24:53 AM
I have to agree with roots though, Harima is a fantastic lead character. ITs awesome that he draws alot. I wish I could be like him. Wearing shades, having a goatee, and being skilled enough to draw to receive praise from editors, be strong enough to take down droves of thugs, and still look sharp enough to get the eyes of all the ladies.(well except for the one that he actually wishes he could get. Karma, anyone?) Man, but you know you're bad-ass(and stupid probaly) when you wear sunglasses all the time. (background music: "I wear my sunglasses at night....") But that all adds to the image.... and the character.
If only i were like him during my highschool years when being a deliquent didn't get you into a jail cell.(at least not until senior year that is.)

Harima-san is so damn hilarious, especially in Volume 3. OMG I read volume 3 last night and I died laughing because he was so hilarious. I got to give Harima-san props tho for trying.

I'll join this fanclub LOL. Firt time joining any fanclub at all and it's an anime fictional caracter... (aya what am I becoming...)
Anyways I like Harima Kenji mainly because of the same reasons the others do.... He's not your typical male leader caracter in these kinds of mangas.
Anyways he's cool.

Title: Re: I hereby proudfully announce the first *Harima Kenji*- fanclub
Post by: Kitomo on April 01, 2005, 07:50:51 PM
why didnt i think of this... in any case, harima is just damn awesome. the truant badboy who can beat up gangs single handedly, coming home to draw manga - perhaps one of the most notably great things about him is that he doesnt attract girls right away - hes actually just a really good guy at heart, and after the ladies realize this - (and get past the glasses and the beard) hes really pretty HawT. and he isnt a downtrod loser who lacks any social skill or physical prowess and still lands babes left and right [just pointing out my distaste for those types of animes].

so okay, hes no mathlete - and he certainly isnt a genius, but hell - no one cares (anyone read GTO?). i read a few of you guys complaining that he didnt decide to bone the pretty ne-chan he was staying with when he was in his little rut, well - lets think about this logically... hes just been heartbroken, and she told him her boyfriend just broke up with her, which means shes on the rebound. taking advantage of her in that situation, or allowing her to make a stupid decision like screwing the first guy she meets LITERALLY in the street - stupidity or not, he did the right thing. shame on you for condemning an innocent man! (plus it would ruin the rest of the manga)

the fact that Harima only sees Tenma in his eyes is admirable, even if it doesnt make sense. it shows what kind of a person he is, and frankly - there are way too many wannabe players out there trying to get it in every girl they can, so kudos to harima for keeping his wang in check. although i think in the end, harima may end up alone meditating in a zen temple or something - fine by me, i support you harima.

consider me your newest member to this club, ok@yy?


ps: naked harima for teh win!

I think that they are suit for each other.

But then, where do I put Tenma-chan?

Post by: Hostile on April 04, 2005, 12:47:31 PM
Tenma can get with Kurasuma, be a loner, or maybe Nara will somehow get her. I personally don't care what happens to Tenma now until Harima gets it into his head that Yakumo and/or Eri are both great girls  ::)
Title: Re: I hereby proudfully announce the first *Harima Kenji*- fanclub
Post by: Zellgadus on April 05, 2005, 08:48:27 AM
I also think like you. Tenma is not worth Harima! I mean there are many other nice girls that do feel something about him it's just a shame he doesn't see this. However I feel that it is the charm of this manga!

He hasn't the chance to do it. A couple of times he's closed to saying it but it doesn't work.

You see some relations, between other couples to be, strenghten.

There is a fight though! A cool fight!! For Nee-Chan.

Well for me it is this miracolous expression on his face nearly every panel, which makes my laugh and even more laugh, or sometimes even pity him!

Think of the scene
*SPOILER AHEAD*
where he holds the girl and is totally naked!
OR my personnal favourite....when he arrives at nee-chans house to fix the AC !!!
Hilarious, just hilarious!

The AC scene is hilarious, especially when you see if from Yakumo's perspective. Its just too good.

Post by: Private Prinny on May 13, 2005, 03:44:03 AM
Well, sorry, at least i was righteous (?) enough to write *spoilers ahead*
Do not blame me!

And number one panel (or better page) in the whole manga for me is still the scene where yakumo is taken away from the huge tidal wave of thoughts: "I LOVE YOU YAKUMO!" That was CULT!

Wait, was this also a spoiler?
No?
*Phew!*
Title: Re: I hereby proudfully announce the first *Harima Kenji*- fanclub
Post by: Aoshi101 on May 13, 2005, 09:21:04 AM
that was a great scene. my fav one was when Tenma put on Harima's glasses and seaweed and was shownig Harima how to say 'I like you' or 'I love you'. I forgot which. I was dyin from laughter when I saw that.

Title: Re: I hereby proudfully announce the first *Harima Kenji*- fanclub
Post by: flightoftheunicorn on May 28, 2005, 05:32:00 AM
I think Harima is d-r-e-a-m-y and so sweet.  I love his tough-guy, soft-heart personality.  Sigh.  Marry me Harima.  I'm lovesick. ;)

A lot of people think he's nuts for liking Tenma when there are so many other much prettier girls in his class, but she has a unique appeal that's all her own: she's kind; she's pretty in an innocent, pure sort of way; and she's funny (though she doesn't know it :) )

I think Harima's love for Tenma is real love, because even though there are all these other gorgeous girls around him, the only one that matters to him, the only one he has eyes for, is Tenma.  I personally think it shows great character that even though that really beautiful girl he's living with threw herself at him, he didn't want her at all - it shows how true his love for Tenma is.  (P.S. I haven't read the manga, I watched a couple of the episodes of anime, so maybe some of his reactions to the people around him are different in the manga than the anime, I don't know.)

I'm new to this kind of fan chat posting room, so I'm not sure if this is going to work, but I'm trying to modify my post and repost it ... here goes ...

Yes, he is so hilarious.  I don't think he's stupid as much as that he's so lovesick over Tenma and clueless about how to act around girls, in general, that he ends up saying and doing some really goofy things.  Hilarious stuff - I'd love to see more humor in this series - laughter make life sweeter, and so does love.  I hope that, someday, someone will love me as deeply as Harima loves Tenma.  (Yes, I'm a soppy, goofy romantic - that's just me. :) )

P.S. My favorite humorous scene from the anime was when Tenma was trying to teach Harima how to confess his love to the girl he had a crush on (not knowing it's her he has a crush on).  Tenma was so hilarious, when she grabbed his sunglasses and put some seaweed on her face to look like a beard and mustache, and imitated a gruff, nonchalant sort of guy.  (Which, actually, Harima is not, because deep down he's a real sweet softy.)

an addition a few days later ...

Harima's the kind of guy who's funny and attractive to girls as a cartoon character, but in real life a guy like him would be too violent and angst-ridden for the taste of most girls (myself included).  Cartoon characters can get away with bad behavior and character flaws (punching lots of people and explosions of anger) that girls wouldn't want in a guy in real life.  Some things are only funny in cartoons.

author: Kitomo

"so okay, hes no mathlete - and he certainly isnt a genius, but hell - no one cares (anyone read GTO?). i read a few of you guys complaining that he didnt decide to bone the pretty ne-chan he was staying with when he was in his little rut, well - lets think about this logically... hes just been heartbroken, and she told him her boyfriend just broke up with her, which means shes on the rebound. taking advantage of her in that situation, or allowing her to make a stupid decision like screwing the first guy she meets LITERALLY in the street - stupidity or not, he did the right thing. shame on you for condemning an innocent man! (plus it would ruin the rest of the manga)

the fact that Harima only sees Tenma in his eyes is admirable, even if it doesnt make sense. it shows what kind of a person he is, and frankly - there are way too many wannabe players out there trying to get it in every girl they can, so kudos to harima for keeping his wang in check. although i think in the end, harima may end up alone meditating in a zen temple or something - fine by me, i support you harima."

my response:

Thank you Kitomo!  Finally!  Someone agrees with me!  I also think Harima deserves credit for NOT being sleazy!  He's a great guy with a heart of gold!

Well said!
I haven't seen the confession-practice-session in the animated series, only in the manga but it is still so dangerous to my health (dying cause of hysteric laughter!)

its dangerous to anyone's health because those practice confession sessions are one of the major highlights of the manga.

Well I watched the anime first before going to the manga, but comparing the two I would say that the anime is on par with the manga in terms of story and art.

Actually, it felt rather weird at first reading the manga where each chapter was like 6pgs avg...

It did feel weird cause the average chapter is like what 20-30 pages long but these are around 7 to 8 on average.

HARIMA GO GET YOUR WOMAN!!!
