"An idol... I'm already a vocalist in a band, y'know. Well, there's no way you'd know that... For someone like me to become an idol... Are you for real? I can sense your enthusiasm, though, so I guess I'll listen to what you're saying."
Ryo is a horror movie and death metal fanatic, though she appreciates music genres like jazz and classical. She is a good friend of Koume Shirasaka, as the two share many interests. While she enjoys horror, she tends to be bored by most horror films. That said, she isn't immune to fear like Koume and can be scared by ghosts.
Before becoming an idol, she was a vocalist in a band, and in the anime, she was introduced as a member of Natsuki Kimura's prospective band.
In Starlight Stage the Producer attended one of Ryo's band's concerts, which wasn't successful. The rest of the band members wanted to quit after the concert. Despite this, Ryo expressed her wish to keep singing so that people could listen to her songs. A couple of days later she visited the Producer and, encouraged by the other members of her band, Ryo accepted the Producer's offer and became an idol.
It is revealed in Starlight Stage that Ryo used to be a prim-and-proper princess type with an interest only in classical music, but to break free from that image, she became a vocalist and got into rock music.
In the tie in Cinderella Girls Theater skits, Ryo is introduced with a cool reputation. However, she is a kind girl who cares about the other younger girls, like Chie Sasaki and Koume Shirasaka, and how they feel. Her company often gets her into trouble, but she admits that she enjoys their antics as long as they end peacefully. She will often put the show ahead of her own health, and is willing to dash over a mile on foot to get to a live event on time. Ryo sincerely enjoys the stamina drinks the Producer gives her.
