Riko Kumabukuro (くまぶくろ リコ, Kumabukuro Riko), daughter of Kumabukuro, she takes her father's place as announcer during the Kanto tournament.
Riko is determined to become an excellent journalist, and strives to get people to take her seriously. She's not nearly as energetic as Sanada but is still very enthusiastic about her job. While she declares that she's nothing like her father, a running gag in anime is that when she gets too excited, she turns into a miniature version of her father. (She grows an afro in the anime when she gets too excited.)
- Her good looks is what got her an interview with Agon.
- The harder she tries, the more she's about to lose her temper.
When Riko interview the aces in the Kantou tournament, she asked these questions:
- What are your strong points?
- Of all the things you have bought until now, what is the most expensive?
- Imagine today is the last of Earth! How would you spend it?
- Are there any players you're looking out for in this year's tournament?
- What kind of girl do you like?
