Hello! I am quite new to this forum, but I was spurred on by my love for Ryo.
(I normally don't fangirl... whatsoever... so if I fangirl over Ryo, I'm pretty sure he's just that awesome to me.)
I actually started liking him from Last Friends. The character he played was quite interesting to me. So, I naturally looked him up.
The Ryo from Kanjani 8 and NewS was quite different from Sousuke Oikawa, to say in the least. Obviously, his acting really amazed me, even more than his infectious smile.
What actually got me started on Last Friends was that my most favorite singer is Utada Hikaru.
It's sort of strange to say to other Ryo fans that I started liking him from Last Friends, since I've heard so many times that he was very different, and even terrifying. I personally got a bit of a thrill watching in ways. I noticed you could never ever see his eyes, and his face was completely blank. The thrill I got, was probably "Wow, this character, his acting, is truly amazing."
His personality is one that I actually like. One of the main things about celebrities is that I have to know that they are someone I would like personally, and this is what made me compelled to join D addicts.
This is basically it! Though, I do have a question, does anyone have this picture? A good quality one? (I ripped it from a youtube video.)
(I'm really in love with this picture, so if anyone has it, I would greatly appreciate it!)
