The anime Burn-Up Excess stars Rio, who is a desk jockey policewoman in Police Town. This beautiful blonde loves the finer things in life, and looking good thus usually over-spends her salary. You can say her real hobby is to stay in debt.

She also became a part of a specialized unit called Team Warrior to help her money problems. She and her unit goes on several adventures including fighting a group of transvestite thieves and exterminating a swarm of robotic insects.
