I suddenly recall that incident about a year ago where supposedly Noe and another Team NIII member were sharing a hotel room with Rika and caused Rika to move out and pay for her own room because they were telling her she didn't deserve to be center. Back then I thought it was just a rumor but makes me wonder if it was true after all..
I feel like Rika has definitely been bullied in that group. Poor girl, she was hated by fans for speaking up about the bullying in the group, for isolating herself, and for being a so called 'bitch' (I must admit i did not like her as well), all while multiple of her members were 10x worse than her, even going as far as to get their boyfriends to assault Maho. They were basically wolves in sheep's clothing.
