Riko finally overcomes her fear with dogs?
With nationals growing near, the girls have to find a way to pass nationals. With that, they have to figure out a theme for their performance. We’ll probably find out what it is in the next episode.
Aside from that, on the way home, Yoshiko found a dog and decides to keep it. Meanwhile, Riko’s mom tasks her daughter to bring Yoshiko’s phone back. After Riko went to find Yoshiko so she can return the phone, she saw a dog. She is afraid of it. Of course, Yoshiko tasks Riko to look after the dog. That is funny since Riko fears dogs. This is about to change.
When Riko took the dog home, she is initially afraid and try to avoid it. Eventually without realizing, she grown closer to it. This causes her friends to notice that Riko is acting strangely. Yoshiko eventually visits Riko’s house to take the dog and Riko starts fighting over it. Thankfully, Riko’s mother found the true owner of the dog. In short, Yoshiko and Riko have to bring the dog back to its owner.
The next day, the girls notice that Riko and Yoshiko drawing a picture of a dog in the sand and throw a stick. Eventually, Yoshiko goes out to get the dog back because she has suspicions. Of course, stealing a dog from someone would be a crime. However, Yoshiko manages to get the dog to see her. Sadly, it wouldn’t come to her.
Aside from the dog, Yoshiko finally reveals how she became the fallen angel. It seems that she has bad luck since she was a child. When she goes out, it would rain. In exchange of the bad luck, she believes that she has special powers. While she tried to use her powers to summon the dog, it doesn’t work. It makes me wonder if it’s just a coincidence. Either way, Riko’s bonds with Yoshiko strengthens despite not getting the dog back.
In short, Riko overcomes her fear for dogs. In the end, she is seen touching Shiitake without hesitation. Yep, it only took 18 episodes to get to this and Riko should be happy for her accomplishment.
