Ragnarok SagaEdit

Siegfried ArcEdit

Renka is first seen when Kensei and Kenchi come to her shop and try attacking them to force her father to come home, but he escapes. She then tags along with Kenichi and when he says he's his student, she attacks him to see how tough he is and thinks he's lying about being his student. When the two sees the Chinese Mafia cause trouble, Renka and Kenichi step in easily defeat them. She then forces them to take them to Sōgestu. She then became rather impressed when Kenichi said he won't let her go alone in this, causing her to blush (and kick him again for trying to be a "hero"). When confronting Sōgestu, she tried fighting him but was easily defeated and saved by her father in time. When the building was colapsing from the fire, Renka was shocked when Kenichi tried to save Sōgestu from the building but was forced back into the elevator from dying with him. After a few days had passed and the Mafia was arrested, Renka was irritated by how her father got away again and even showed that she wanted to take Kenichi back with her to China.

Relations ArcEdit

Some time later, she travels to Ryōzanpaku after finding out from Hakubi when he was drunk to tell her. She shows how glad she is to see Kenichi again. Just as Kensei tries to leave, Renka threatens him to tell her mother about where he is and he's forced to stay for now. When Renka states she also wants to take Kenichi back with her to China and even clings to his arm, Miu sees this and Kenichi pulls away from her and states he doesn't want to go. Renka, seeing that Miu doesn't want Kenichi to go, decides to stay for a while. Renka continuously would switch with Miu on several of the things she usually does with Kenichi such as sparing, giving him her food, making Miu jealous and even angry. However, once Renka saw why Kenichi wants to learn martial arts because of Miu's influence, she states to Miu that Kenichi just saw her first. Since then the two have developed a rivalry for his affection. Miu would play with Renka due to her cat like hair and would cause the two to almost fight each other.

To teach Kenichi a finishing move of his own, she would take him to a public pool park (though it was more of an attempt to get closer to him). However, all the masters and Miu also went. She became annoyed by Akisame's rough training on Kenichi. When some thugs would attack Miu and try to embarass her, Kenchi would step in and defend her and Renka would watch in amazment from how strong he truly is. However, those thugs were actually from Hakubi to bring Renka back and didn't mean to cause trouble. She decided to go back due to Hakubi needing her assistance and can't run the shop without her.

Yami/YOMI SagaEdit

Spark ArcEdit

When Renka was taking down some thieves for stealing someones wallet, she's shocked to see Kenichi again and asks why he's there and precedes to chase him. When Hakubi decides to talk alone with Kensei, he tells Renka to take Kenichi on her own for a while and she happily does . The two run into more thugs and defeat them. Renka wanted to have a date with Kenichi, but her chance got ruined because of the thugs and Kenichi got lost. Renka appeared again to assist Kenichi in the battle against Yami disciple Spark, who specialized in the Drunken Fist martial art. When her father Li Tenmon arrived, he easily defeated Renka and the Alliance due to Niijima discovering that he's a master class opponent. Afterwards, she went home.

Master-Disciple Tag Match ArcEdit

When the Three-Headed Dragon team was traveling to China and in trouble on the train they were on, Renka saves them. She then calls Ryōzanpaku and asks Kenichi to help her deal with them on what to do with them since he's fought them before. Yinlin Chou would note that she's in love with Kenichi despite her trying to deny it. During the fight between Apachai and Kei Retsumin, a master sent to assassinate the three headed dragon group, she was able to read most of the shockwave orbits that surrounded the two combatants and was even able to guide Kenichi through them as he attempted to remove the birdcage on Kei's head. It is worth noting that the Three-Headed Dragon group were present during the fight, and although they proved to be formidable martial artists during the D of D tournament, none of them were even aware of the shockwave orbits. Even Kenichi was initially unable to see them, although he was later able to once he discovered that the shockwave orbits utilized principles similar to those behind Ryuusui Seikuken.

Renka vs Chikage

After the Three-Headed Dragon team now works at Hakubi's shop, she transferred to Kenichi's school and started a fight with the YOMI member Chikage Kushinada but stopped fighting at Kenichi's insistence. Having spoken with Miu about Kenichi's plan she agreed not to reveal Chikage's membership of YOMI or fight her. She then met several members of the Alliance and claimed the title of leader which she justified by beating Nijima in battle (which Kenichi describes as "the reasoning of a savage") when he was incensed by her claim. She then declared that she’d defeat them all to solidify her claim. The fight was broken up before it could begin once again at Kenichi's insistance and Renka apologized profusely which led to Ukita and Takeda accepting her. When Kisara notes how similar Renka is to a cat she accepts her despite previously disliking her due to how well endowed she was in comparison to herself. Later she is shown fighting alongside Ryō Ma's two disciples against a Master class fighter intent on fighting Kensei. The three of them defeat him with minor assistance from Takeda. Renka impressed with Takeda's powers insists they should spar which results in them battling with Renka blissfully unaware of how much they are putting at stake.

Castor vs Renka

When Kenichi is invited to a tag team match between a master of his choice and Diego and Rachel, Renka chooses to step in on his behalf due to his absence at the time and his unwillingness to hit women. They enter a ship where the fight would take place, and Renka sees first-hand herself the might of a Yomi disciple. She is then seen squaring against Rachel Stanley on the outer side of the ring (due to Kensei and Diego already occupying the inner ring); Rachel made the first move when she easily sneaked behind Renka and then followed up a supplex that smashed Renka's head to the deck of the ship, only for Renka to quickly recover. After a skirmish of rapid kicks, Rachel clasped hands with Renka, twisted them upwards, and then maneuvered Renka into a Romero Special grappling maneuver, solely to embarass Renka by exposing her underwear for the audiences to see. However, due to DIego being defeated by her father gives her the chance to defeat her. Unfortunatly, due to the bomb found on the ship, the fight is undecided and she runs over to where Kenichi and Miu are. She thanks Kenichi for his efforts for protecting her and when her top comes undone from her fight, she becomes embarrassed and kicks Kenichi in the face for it. The next day at school, Kenichi would thank her and state how grateful he is to her, unknowingly charming her further and making her blush.

Later she is seen fighting several weapon assassins. While worried at first since Kenichi picked a fight with the most skilled weapon Assassin, she is later impressed by how much stronger he has become and clings to his arm, much to Miu's jealousy who also tries to cling to his arm.

Hachiou Executioner Blade ArcEdit

At the Ryozanpaku headquarters, Renka is informed by Kenichi and Miu of Shigure's capture by Yami. Renka thinks that the fight is getting too reckless for disciple-level fighters to be involved, but Kenichi insists that he wants to keep fighting despite the danger.


  • Renka is one of the four girls that are in love with or have developed feelings for Kenichi. The other three are Miu, Raichi and Izumi.
  • Renka bears a virtual resemblance to Ranma 1/2 character Shampoo. The two are 16 year old Chinese girls who are skilled at Chinese martial arts and are rivals with the leading females for the affections of the main protagonists. Renka's tendency to act like a cat is a possible reference to Shampoo's cat curse.
  • As the daughter of Kensei Ma, and a member of the Ma family, Renka has been taught all types and styles of chinese kenpo, and has at least a very practical level of skill in all of this martial arts. Athough the specific type and styles of chinese martial arts that she uses are currently unknown, In battle 328, Renka mentions a type of kung fu called Kinna jutsu during her fight with Rachel Stanley which involves focusing on attacking and restraining the joints of the opponent. This would imply that she specializes, or at the very least has skill in the use of this martial art. Whether or not this true is currently unknown.
