Yeah, I think Arisa really had her heart set on creating a volleyball life in her home town more than whatever kind of the Maiko Kano is doing ... being a celebrity retired volleyball player? That's what makes what happened over there with the Sendai organization tragic to me
Multi-tasking as both coach and player in a small team without a stable footing while doing PR for their prefecture was the wrong move for her. There's a reason that's not a thing. She made it a one-woman team where she had to do almost everything with very little acknowledgement from the volleyball field.
