Re: Rikopi. I'm just baffled by these posts about her. I guess we just have to agree to disagree here. You guys have been reasonable in your posts, so I respect that. I think she's fine the way she is. I liked her recent appearance in the 2-ki sport episode. But yeah, the spotlight seems to favor the shin 2-ki members like Kira, Onuma & Oozono recently. It's perfectly fine to me to see the spotlight being shone on different members. Early on in 2-ki appearance, I love Honyo-chan's visual (and I still do)...but I found Rikopi to be the more...interesting/quirky, I suppose. And not too shabby on the visual front at all. I felt she did get quite good screentime early on in 2-ki appearances on Keyakake. Why the hell am I standing up for Rikopi? She's not even my oshimen. Sorry if I bother any of you guys. I like her and I still can see her as a reliably good variety member. She is definitely not beyond salvage. I see the group as an ensemble cast of interesting characters/roles and the focus/spotlight can change from time to time. But that's just me. For the shin 2-ki members: I read mentions about Endo and Kohsaka. At least, Hikari still being touted as a great dancer. Kohsaka...well...hopefully tonight's episode could change that. I love the group too much to give up on any members, past or present. For however long it may last, this is my way to support Keyakizaka.
