Friendship, in all its iterations, can be a beautiful thing. It can be warm, it can be supportive, and it can be loving, but it can hurt a lot too, especially when you feel it slipping away from you. So it's fitting that a show built around central themes like "friendship" and "teamwork" would also spend time on its cloudier side. We saw a few episodes ago with the third-years how something like sacrifice could morph into isolation with just a simple lack of communication. This week, we see how Chika's strident support for Riko can have other unintended consequences as well, namely feelings of increased abandonment from You.
