It makes much more sense this way. The whole point is that the Casull siblings are so strong because they have each other, while Chris is entirely alone (. . . for now

glad this wasn't animated because I'm not sure I could take the emotional beating that Orikasa Fumiko's acting would surely have provided. It's bad enough hearing it in my head. Also, d'awww at the "incantation."
