The characters are back on the ice and bringing some potentially good drama with them. With Riko getting hurt that does put some pressure on everyone and should allow for some character development. That’s presuming of course that this isn’t minor and she misses next to no time. Something I think is possible since the show is 100% averse to giving the other characters on the Dream Monkeys any screentime or putting someone who isn’t a main character on the same line as main characters. Putting the potential negatives aside though, it was good to give Riko and Naomi some focus together.
