Ryomou's anime incarnation is much more taciturn and serious than her manga self to the point of being almost unemotional. She is not shy or spoony and acts uninterested in relationships. In one scene she isn't even phased when Saji puts his hand down her shirt and gropes her. However, when she is around Saji, she is shown to have feelings for him. It is shown that, when in romantic-like situations with Saji, she becomes highly embarrassed to the point of denying what she really wants to do. Her magatama is also shown as being silver in the first season, and by the second season she is arguably as strong as Myousai, though she retreats during their first battle in order to protect the Dragon Jade. She doesn't have a past relationship to Seito and Ryubi either. Instead her dragon appears to be her own, though how she got it is not known. She also appears to be closer to Hakufu than she does in the manga and goes out of her way to help the Nanyo leader whenever she can. She even went out on her own to find the Dragon Jade to save Hakufu. She was badly injured after being ambushed by Teni. Chou-un came to her rescue but Ryomou awakened her own dragon, defeating Teni. Chou-un was able to knock out Ryomou, bandage her and return her to Nanyo after stealing the Dragon Jade. Chou-un stated that if Ryomou was not injured during the awakening of her dragon, Ryomou would have been able to defeat her. Ryomou recovered to full strength and played a part in the Battle of Chibi, defeating Myosai. She is now working along with Hakufu in a cosplay cafe, dressed as a cat maid (Ryomou even wears a heart-shaped eye-patch). In the third season it's revealed that she and Hakufu lost that job and numerous others because of Ryomou's clumsiness and beating on customers. Ryomou's dragon unlike Hakufu's did not go back into hibernation after Chi Bi and it is revealed to be killing her. Cody manages to grab Ryomou alone, and attempts to persuade her to be his partner. She is usually viewed as somewhat unfriendly, however Ryomou had changed somewhat after meeting Duncan and Courtney.
