  • Chapter 41: We see that despite helping to save the city, ESPers are still demonized and even Rinka isn't an exception.
  • Chapter 44: Rinka is told that she's responsible for the death of the first opponent she fought because she went too easy on him by knocking him out in a serious fight, and she ultimately has to become ruthless in order to save them. When she can't do that, her Enemy Within performs a Split Personality Take Over and blinds the guy, leading to her collapsing and wishing for Azuma to come help her.
    • Whenever she has a fight that she has to be absolutely brutal in, we see her room is trashed in the aftermath due to needing to take it out on something. Then she just sits on her bed in a comatose-like state.
  • Chapter 47: A couple who have ESP are separated in Hong Kong after running away to start a new life, with him having no choice but to fight while she ends up getting sold off. By the time we see her again two months later, she's covered in bruises and brought to witness his fight in the finals after being forced to hurt and kill other people.
    • Likewise, Rinka is forced to watch as she's being sold off to some sleazebag while being called out as nothing more than an obedient dog by one of the other fighters who idolized her believing she could change things. The other fighters who she's faced are terrified of her as well. She wants to do something about it, but can't afford to act just yet until the CIA can move during the finals two months later.
