* [[spoiler:Kanou]] dies in episode 14 of ''Manga/NurseAngelRirikaSOS''. As Ririka cannot reveal that he [[spoiler:is an alien from another dimension]] she instead opts to say he [[spoiler:went back to London]]. She spends the episode [[HeroicBSOD distraught and in tears]] due to being unable to tell anyone. Her friends just think she's upset because [[spoiler:her crush]] moved away. It doesn't help that no one but her friend Seiya is allowed to know, so she has no shoulder to cry on. This is one of the things that makes Ririka [[IJustWantToBeNormal doubt]] being a MagicalGirl.
