When I started to read the manga a couple of years ago and then wached the anime version of it, I never thought, that Rika would be my favourite character in this series. She maybe has the most advanced personality in this show. The recent episode 10, the scene with Kodaka on the rooftop is really something. Rika beeing the first one to engage someone with "Afterall, we are friends, right?", certainly never saw that happening. Many things, I didn't expect, but that is, what maybe makes Rika so damn interesting.
