Theme 

The theme of "Ryuko" is  "There is good and evil on both sides of the same currency."
The author thinks that each righteousness is the same as the number of humans.
In other words, it is sometimes evil.
This story is not a moral trial or a mere revenge play.
It is the story of men and women who discover or lose sight of each righteousness.

Another theme is "Father and daughter".
Ryuko suffers from a deep karma of father murder.
The father and daughter of China Mafia who is the enemy of Ryuko also suffers from the cruel tradition of the organization.

These two themes are intertwined complexly.
It is a story of a person who believes in"righteousness" in confusion, despair, blood and gunpowder smoke.
