Behind where I looked back (Who’s in the front?)
I raised my claws at the darkness (and ripped the night apart)

Raindrops turn into droplets of blood
and run down my cheeks
If there isn’t a place for me to return anywhere
anymore

Take these fingers, my fingers
I’ll take all your fingers away
To the unopenable forest where cicadas cry
There’s no turning back anymore

OK LET’S TALK ABOUT HOW FUCKING STRONG RIKA IS AS WE CAN SEE FROM THIS SCENE

OK FIRST, SHE FUCKING HURLS A CHAIR HALFWAY ACROSS A SCHOOL ROOM WITH SUCH FORCE THAT IT COMPLETELY KNOCKS SATOKO OVER

SECOND, SHE THEN DRAGS ANOTHER CHAIR OVER AND BEGINS TO BEAT THE SHIT OUT OF HER WITH IT SEEMINGLY EFFORTLESSLY

AND THEN SHE DROPS THAT CHAIR AND IT MAKES A SATISFYING BOOM NOISE WHEN IT HITS THE GROUND SIGNALLING THAT IT IS NOT LIGHT WEIFGHT CRAP AND SHE DOESNT EVEN BREAK A SWEAT (she does do a dramatic (singular) pant though but that is it)

RIKA IS A NINE YEAR OLD GIRL LET ME REMIND YOU HOLY SHIT

ALSO IT IS CANON THAT SHE IS A STRONG MOTHERFUCKER AND NOT JUST DRAMATIC ANIME HERE

SHE PRACTICES FOR THE FESTIVAL RITUAL WITH A FUCKING HEAVY HAMMER THAT’S USED FOR MASHING SOMETHING I CANT REALLY REMEMBER. AND THEN THE ACTUAL HOE USED IN THE RITUAL DOESNT LOOK ALL THAT LIGHT ITS ALL METALLY AND SHE HAS TO SWING THAT THING AROUND WITH DIGNITY AND DISSECT MATTRESSES WITH IT

FORGET ABOUT BEING SCARED OF RENA OR SHION, BE SCARED OF RIKA CAUSE SHE CAN BEAT YOUR NASTY ASS AND THROW YOU OFF A CLIFF

Satoko, shut your mouth for a second. Since you had the same face as my best friend, I endured it for a while. But I am just about fed up with that arrogant voice of yours. The next time you decide to bully me, I won’t listen to any of your excuses. With that in mind…Nice to meet you.
