Rie: "I know you see a lot of girls. Who's your favorite?"
Sojiro: "That's a given...It's you Rie."
Rie: "Liar."
— Sojiro and Rie[src]

Rie (理恵 (りえ) Rie) was one of Sojiro Nishikado's flings. They slept together at least once. She appeared to harbor deeper feelings for him than he did for her.[2]


Rie and Sojiro, possibly met and slept together previously. On one such occasion, Rie asked Sojiro who was his favorite girl. When he replied "it's you", she asked if he was serious and if he would stop seeing other girls. He replied "uh-uh".[2]

Behind the scenes

  • Rie appears in a minor role in "Story of an Encounter", which is told from Sojiro's point-of-view.
  • In Meteor Rain, Rie is combined with another minor character, Mina, and renamed Julie. After she sleeps with Xi Men (Sojiro), they have a similar conversation to the one in the manga.
