Why Ryo?

Simply, Shenmue is my favourite game forever. I still own my Dreamcast (yes) and still play Shenmue. Shenmue was the game with which I learnt most of my English since I was a kid! And I love the game because it's so immersive, it has a life of it's own in which you participate! It's a crazy premise and such an ambitious project that became a treasure and which couldn't save the company SEGA, but at least they went away with their heads up and proud ♥
And Ryo is the cherry to top it all. He doesn't look as charismatic as we make him out to be, but in a way I think he stole our hearts ^^. I feel for him when I play, I always try my best to kick those sailors out! And I love to see the story as if it was a japanese Dorama :3 All in all, Ryo is a nice change for a protagonist, if you ask me.
We always kinda get the same type of protagonists if you know what I mean, but with this story it was different and I like that. Besides it makes you feel like you could find a Ryo in the streets! I think I'm ranting way too much now, just so you know, Ryo is really dear to me as is this game ♥
I'll be happy to get contacted about the game or the character any time! You can contact me here :D

What is a fanlisting?

According to TFL.org: "A fanlisting is simply an online list of fans of a subject, such as a TV show, actor, or musician, that is created by an individual and open for fans from around the world to join. There are no costs, and the only requirements to join a fanlisting are your name and country. Fanlistings do not have to be large sites (although some are), they are just a place where you can sign up with other fans."

Site and layout

This fanlisting is run with Enthusiast and is maintained by Janna.
You are currently viewing version 1 of Suedehead. I wanted it to resemble the Memo Pad in which Ryo writes his diary and important stuff! I don't think I succeeded much, but I like the outcome :3
Why did I name the fanlisting with such a weird name? HUH? Well, Suedehead Ryo is the nickname (besides baby boy Ryo) given to him by the woman at the Abe Store in Sakuragaoka.
A Suedehead is "a young person of a subculture characterized by an appearance similar to that of skinheads but generally with slightly longer hair and smarter clothes." I think she calls him Suedehead because he's always been of the rebell, reckless type. Just like others call him punk out of disrespect, I think he gives out the idea of him being a bad guy :D Which I think suits him in a way! Besides I love that word and style, so I thought it was fitting ♥
