Me and my friend were talking about parent's treatment of kids (for some reason) and I thought of a story that was quite similar to this show, but thankfully obviously less exaggerated.

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/sport/motorsport/formulaone/11204319/How-Max-Verstappen-learnt-from-his-father-Joss-silent-treatment-in-his-progression-to-F1.html

Long story short for if you don't want to read the article; it's about Max Verstappen, the F1 driver, and his father back when he was go karting at 15. His father was an ex F1 driver and coached him all the way to F1. He made a "rookie mistake" and crashed out during the final race of the weekend at World Championships after winning all the qualification races and qualifying first. His father was so irritated with the mistake that he just left the track without helping his son pack up anything, then refused to speak to his son for 7 days straight. The father said he wanted to teach his son a lesson that would hurt him and that he's glad it happened because his son uses his brain a lot more then he did before he received this lesson.

I don't get what they're doing with the last episode and it concerns me. They omitted information the episode before for drama but now they're actively breaking with how things are supposed to be and I don't see what they gain from it.

Hanebado episode 5 from my YouTube comment that I had posted. I’m just going to say it since our topic is mostly include Ayano’s Mom and Connie the “so-called prodigy girl”.

Hate Ayano’s Mom & Connie so much! The mother abandoned her duties to help raise, nurture, and aid Ayano. But no she did not fulfill her role and replace her own flesh and blood for another child as her own “child” & “so-called prodigy”. The ending where we saw Ayano’s creepy dead eye smile indicates that her condition in her mental state is not well since her first lost, her mother abandoning her at a young age, and photo with Connie left her traumatized and possible obsessed with revenge. The only reason that makes me sure is Ayano’s Mom does not want her pride to be ruined by her daughter’s lost and wants her own child prodigy who she can be proud of. The mother thought that leaving her daughter behind with the grandparents would be better however the trauma changed Ayano’s personality. The pride of the mother is nothing but poison and a tool that turn Ayano into a victim of despair and tragedy as well to obsession to get revenge on her mother and Connie. I hate the mother and Connie very much. If my kid lost, I would tell him/her that when we lose, we can always try to stand and get back up to win again.

Also, Ayano lived with her grandparents for about 10 years without her mother. In those 10 years, Uchicka should be doing her role as a mother is to take care of her daughter, celebrate her daughter’s birthday, watch her daughter’s play, and even watch her to become a beautiful woman as she grows older. Staying, raising, and watching our own children and help the to grow up to become better people is one of life’s greatest gifts. But the way Uchicka abandon and neglected Ayano is unacceptable in both moral and mental way. Uchicka’s abandonment on her daughter is immoral as a parent and not supporting her daughter and not there to teach and watch her to grow up. Her reason to leave without telling her daughter why is illogical and have no clear judgement. This cause Ayano’s mental health with scares and trauma which can affect their own self. If she was a true, loyal, caring mother where was she during Ayano’s time of need? Where was she. To celebrate Ayano’s birthday and wishing her he best? Where was she to watch her daughter to go to her first middle school and high school? Where was she so that she can teach Ayano the moral sense between right and wrong? Where was she when Ayano is growing up?...
She was nowhere near Ayano, just left her and flew to Denmark to train her “so-called child prodigy” as her new replacement! She was too busy winning championships instead of caring for her own daughter! She didn’t even send a gift, card, or a phone call because she never bother celebrating Ayano’s birthday! Uchicka is never there to help her daughter grow to become a better person. Uchicka is never a good role model as a caring mother, but a bad role model as a mother who abandons her own kin.
Because one small event, will change a person’s life forever... and Uchicka changed her own daughter, Ayano, into a person who will become a worse version of herself.

Episode 6

And now, an episode about Riko as the club captain is graduating at the end of the year. She had a tough time in last year's torunament, but she's determined to win in her final season and wants to do so in style as she gets thouse new uniforms. Riko's first opponent in the prelims is Nozomi, and she's falling behind as the nervousness is getting to her. After the timeout, she finds her groove and while she realizes she doesn't hit hard like Nagisa or have god-like reflexes that Ayano does, she has her own playing style with those long clears to give her time to react. In the end, Riko lost, but she made Nozomi work for it seeing that she's a much stronger player and was holding back hoping to save her stamina for the next opponent, but she needed to use every bit of it against Riko. Pretty nice insight on Riko there going to show that while she has seniority, her game just isn't as strong as Ayano's or even Nagisa's.

Now that was an excellent episode. So sad that Riko lost so early but it was going to happen eventually as she's just not one of the main girls. I hope we'll still get more time with her though. Next episode should be very interesting. That final exchange with Kaoruko was perfect but then mom shows up too? Can't wait for next week.

i do hope that ayano gives her mother a cold shoulder once they reunite. she dosen't really deserve to get ayano's forgiveness. i mean, she abandoned her, and for what reason ? even if she didnt mean any harm , she never really was a mother to her. she was never there when ayano needed her the most, and all that mattered to her was to raise ayano into badminton stardom . there might be some truths that still haven't surfaced yet , but i would be upset if ayano decide to forgive her.

can't wait for ayano vs conny. i hope that ayano absolutely crush her. i just can't stand her and ayano's mother :P

Episode 6

When it comes to todays episode i really like that it focuses on someone else instead of getting more of Ayano and her mommy issues. We get to finally see more of Riko and unlike Nagisa and Ayano she doesn’t feel as confident. With a tournament coming up it’s her last chance as a senior to participate and she sure wants to win. However she is facing a friend from another school Nozomi and Riko is sure she is going to lose. Nagisa on the other hand believes that she can win and it’s Riko mindset that will lead to her losing.

When it came to the tournament the girls sport some new uniforms and Nagisa’s sure shows a lot more than it should lol. It’s great to see that Nozomi isn’t like Kaoruko all full of herself and shows respect to the player she is playing. The match between Nozomi and Riko was one sided with Nozomi coming on top, but after some advice from the coach and encouragement from Nagisa, Riko manages to come up with a strategy to turn things around. However the match goes in favor of Nozomi but at least Riko can rest assured that she tried her best till the end.



Now that Riko had her time to shine this week we are back next week with Ayano’s mommy issues once again. It seems that Uchika wants to check out how good Ayano has gotten since starting to play bandminton again? Well whatever the reason is it’s only going to bring Ayano more pain once she see’s her. Lets see what happens next week?

I actually pretty curious about what her mother's reasoning may be. Like, I don't think that her abandonment is ever going to be justified, but I'm curious to see what was going through her head when she abandoned her daughter.

Man, those new uniforms are very...figure hugging ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

And that opponent coach looked so molester-shady, like the show is saying "he is a bad guy".

It was sad for Riko, but I felt that there wasn't enough development time to feel emotionally attached to her - this episode was the main focus we got.

Can't wait for the next episode angst

Ayano should have beat the snot out of Kaoruko and then thrown the handkerchief at her afterwards; "use it to clean up your blood, bitch".

It's one thing for a antagonist character to challenge the protagonist due to some kind of rivalry or because of a mentor figure, but it's another thing to continue to imply that she is basically a "illegitimate" daughter to her mother because she isn't "great" at badminton.

You know, I understand wanting to add depth and a sense of drama and rivalries, but I feel this anime is a one trick pony when it comes to Ayano. Everyone is a total bytch to here for no damn reason, and now they add more mommy drama, so she's mentally effed up on court?

I'm about at my limit with this show. I really want to like it, but the persistent attacks on Ayano really annoy me.

I guess most of us wanted Riko to win including myself. Once again the animations were on point with their badminton play. Even though Riko lost, she had fun but seeing her cry was rough.
