A younger sister to all magical girls, she is a magical girl with a sisterly presence. Every day, she acts as the mascot of her home’s bento shop, attracting customers and warming their hearts. While she may seem to be nothing more than an innocent elementary school student, she doesn’t forget to have concern for the adults around her, and is an admirable go-getter.

Doppel Description

The Doppel of thread-reeling. Its form is a moonlit matchmaker. The master of this emotion has yet to admit that this Doppel is still lurking within her heart. This Doppel spreads a thick sheet of ice at its master’s feet, and appears within the ice. When it attacks, it can also emerge above the ice by switching places with its master, but this traps its master within the ice in exchange. Above the ice, the Doppel reels in and steals every thread of fate it can find. By collecting a thread that its master once tied together in the past, it seeks to return her situation to how it was before. Nevertheless, severing a joined thread after the fact will only bury those who it united deep under the ice. Each time this Doppel is used, the feelings that its master had already given up on will resurface in her heart.

Side Story

The following is a summary posted on 4chan's /pmmm/ general by Summary Anon.

Riko's family bento shop is always busy and while they love her, her parents had no choice but to have their neighbor's daughter babysit her. Riko's childhood memories are mostly spending time with this cheerful and kind elder sister who teaches her homework, gives her gifts when she performs well or during festivals, and taking her out to play. They are as close as sisters.

As Riko grows older, she begins helping out at her home shop, but since her parents often need to work overtime, 'Sis' still took care of her at night when she returned home first. One day, Riko noticed Sis has puffy red eyes, but she refused to share her troubles, but still took good care of her as usual. A few days later, as Riko is helping out at the shop, she heard Sis and her father arguing at their metal shops.

That night, she managed to pry from Sis the reason: she is about to marry far away from the district, and her dad who is worried for her refused to accept it, which is a sudden change of attitude since he was approving of the relationship this whole time. Sis is sad that her beloved father refuses to trust her judgement. Riko wants to help, but has no idea how to. Later that night, Kyubey visits Riko and manages to have her make a wish in which everybody will give their blessings to Sis's marriage. It works, and Sis is happily married and moves out of the district.

In the present, Riko realizes that she is very lonely without Sis and not even her pet dog nor Magic Kirin can ease the loneliness and fear she has when waiting at home for her parents to come home. Rationally, she can understand her parents are working hard for a living, but as a grade school kid, she can't accept this reality.

One day, Riko's parents have to work overtime again and send her home first. After finishing her homework, Riko goes out for witch hunting and is dismayed that her parents are still not back at 2230 after her easy victory. She decides to help set their futons so they can rest after a hard day's work. They call back and explain that they can only return after midnight due to the huge order placed by Tsukasa's dad since he wants to advertise their good food to his customers visiting the next day to expand their market. They promise to take Riko out after this huge order and have a family outing. Years spent being lonely and emotions that have stacked make Riko snap as she calls her parents liars since they have made many promises before and broken all of them. She said they were never there for her like Sis was and claims that she hates them, hanging the phone up at the same time.

Riko goes witch hunting to vent stress. While she manages to win, she almost died since the witch was stronger than expected. She realized that no one will be there to comfort her in the future and she will have to face her troubles and problems alone and gets crushed by despair and helplessness, even thinking she should have not made the wish so Sis would still be with her. Take, a disciple of Tsukasa's dad notices the crying Riko and tries to comfort her and bring her home. But his tactless methods frighten the poor girl since she thinks he is a creep and is trying to sexually assault her. Luckily, Tsukasa comes to the rescue and scolds Take since he is delaying their work.

Consumed with fear and loneliness, Riko confides in Tsukasa, a regular at her shop, about how she feels and the affair with Sis. Speaking from experience, Tsukasa thinks being separated is no excuse for breaking contact, since it is easy to do so if you have the heart. She recommends Riko to speak to Sis on the issue and escorts Riko home after seeing her accepting her advice. Riko messages Sis and falls asleep from exhaustion at home. Her father carried her back to bed when they came home after work.

The next day, Riko receives Sis's prompt reply. She explains that she wanted to contact Riko and visit her as well, but she left home after arguing with her father, and even though he eventually gave his blessings, she is not sure how to face him yet, and thinks it will be awkward if they meet when she visits Riko. Another reason she cannot visit is because she has been hospitalized and is only out today. She invites Riko over instead. Riko asks for permission to visit Sis, but she think they will not give it since they are too busy to bring her out (Sis is married and lives in another district and is too far for a grade schooler to make the trip). However, her parents gave the permission as they sincerely apologize to Riko for making her feel lonely and promise to make it up to her for real this time.

The next day, they visited Sis at her place, and she introduces her husband and her baby daughter to them. She was hospitalized since she needed to give birth, and she hopes Riko can get along with her daughter, just like how she got along with her. Riko fondly remembers how Sis was always there for her, and makes a promise to herself that she will be a good sister for this child, just like how Sis is for her. She looks forward to the day when she can eat her bento and her shop's bento, and aims to grow into such a fine lady.
