Ryo and Asuka are both expert students at Duel Academy and in the Obelisk Blue dorm. The two are often seen together and confide in each-other. The two are often seen together throughout the first season.
Ryo helps Asuka get clues about what happened to her missing brother, Fubuki, years earlier. Ryo is shown to be concerned about her well-being. They are both chosen to protect Spirit Keys when the Seven Star Assassins arrive.
At the end of the first season Ryo graduates and goes into pro dueling. After a string of losses he takes on the identity of Hell Kaiser. They are not shown together after this.
Royalshipping is a common ship and is among the most popular ships in the fandom. Their closeness in the first season led fans to think that they may have a relationship. This ship mainly rivals Fiancéeshipping.
