Rio Asahina is from a middle-class family where she managed to enroll in the prestigious Shishido Academy on a scholarship. Her parents owned a popular inn that provided a steady income, but one day, her father gets harrassed by the local Yakuza forcing him to assist in money-laundering. He later consults with a business consultant to help against the Yakuza, but was revealed it was all part of a huge con resulting in all his accounts being emptied out through an illegal bank access. Rio's father died of heart failure from the shock of what happened, then she learned the name of the man who swindled them to be Yumeichiro Shirasagi, Tomu's father. For that, Rio challenges Tomu to get Yumeichiro's current whereabouts.
Being a billiards junior world champion, Rio accels in the sport, and believed beating Tomu would be child's play since he was a newbie and that there could be no possible way he could improve in only ten days of practice. This ultimately became her downfall as she took a bluff of Tomu's to request a do-over of his break shot because of an outside incident, failing to realize that the balls were not moved by accident, but were actually rearranged by Tomu, Mizuhara, and Natsumi while the crowds were distracted. Her scholarship was taken away from her loss by Abidani and was forced to drop out. Rio heads for Taiwan to receive professional billiards training after being inspired by Tomu's drive to win during their match. Before she left, she received a letter from Tomu claiming his father is innocent and that he'd find the one responsible for her family's misfortune. Looking out her plane window, Rio sees Tomu send her off if with balloons modelled after pool table balls. She, too, falls for Tomu.
Rio reunites with Tomu and Mika in Macau City where they had arranged a meeting for Tomu with Shyu Oumei, an old aquaintance of Yumeichiro. Tomu loses a gamble against Oumei involving a pit viper, much to Rio's horror. She managed to help slow down the venom and quickly gets him to the emergency ward to be treated. Tomu gets hospitalized just days before the start of the "Class Reunion". To obtain the necessary funds of a billion yen to enter, Rio, along with Natsumi, Yuka, and Mizuhara play at the casinos using Tomu's acquired money in hopes of winning big. Rio also planned to win extra in order to fund the renovations of her family's hotel. Rio goes to play at the roulette wheel, where she won big, but in the end lost it all, along with Natsumi and Yuka.
Rio is an expert billiards player, where she became the junior world champion. She is able to pull off trick shots such as jumping the cue ball, and at one point, caused it to fly off the table towards Tomu's face.
