Given Ryo's popularity, people will have a hard time finding a reason to not put him forward. As this has shown, giving Ryo the axe for Transformed was a bad idea.

That's my bad, I misread it as being one of the new Sumo stipulations. Still, it's terribly unnerving having the format changed on the fly, no matter who by! I hope you're right about it being nothing to worry about.

Ryo's edged ahead of Miku to nab second place. There's only a handful of votes between them at the moment so their positions may fluctuate, but Ryo's had the greater momentum for a while now. Senshiro, get ready!

Segata was considered for the first game but it's another character rights issue that put that idea to bed. The character isn't owned by Sega, but the Japanese advertising company they enlisted for promoting the Saturn. So out of the top three only Ryo really has an outward chance to appear since he's not a licensed third-party character.

Actually the bigger the numbers for any given character, the easier the conversation is to convince SEGA there is a call for that character, either as DLC or in a future game.

Put it this way, if we had 50,000 votes for any given character - that would be very hard to ignore when it comes to DLC requests. That's not a challenge BTW!

obviously no character is going to reach that figure, but lets continue to push ryo as hard as we can.

Ryo's currently back in third place behind Miku. For ease of reference I've cobbled together a page that shows live rankings, although it is slow to load: http://teamyu.net/race

and then we find out that sega sold the rights to yu and can't put him in the game, meanwhile yu suzuki is using that license for printing official shenmue t-shirts to fund his smartphone games...

Sega owns all rights to Shenmue. Despite Yu created it he can't do anything without consent from SEGA

After the support he's been getting it would be the only justifiable reason for not putting him in the game, quite frankly.

miku is always only a few votes ahead of us, I know she is disqualified anyway but if we show ryo gets more support than someone as popular as her then that would be sending a strong statement to sega

Segata Sanshiro is already in the game, albeit in the background.
