Is there something wrong with Ryo?

As you can see in the video, leaving Hong Kong is way more important than spending some time with Izumi... at her place.

Oh, another one of these...

I don't know why people always expect Ryo to hit on every chick that there is. Yeah it's actually the chicks that do the move but seriously, does he have to take all the offers? I find Ryo to be a much more likeable and "realistic" character then the stereotypical macho hero you get in every second game.

Ryo's father died and he has left his home for a foreign country at still pretty young age. He's distant and distrustful for a reason. Also, he might just still have his heart settled down for Nozomi, despite not showing it and keeps somewhat of an honor when it comes to girls. Then you could even consider his bad memories with girls. I sadly don't know where this came from but supposedly the fight with "that boy you fought with" was because of Ryo showing interest in a girl and the other boy mocking him for that. That could've affected his behavior early on.

There was a scene in the first game with Nozomi where he hinted that, had his father not just been murdered in front of his eyes, he may well have ended up with her, but at that moment in time, he's too cut up and disjointed to even consider it. Anyone who feels that they've found "the one" or whatever could relate to him rejecting any advancements from others, coz even though it isn't cheating, it feels like it.

And @SpinDash: It's part of "Young Ryo's" bio.

Yeah, I have always seen it that way too : he's so absorbed in that murder, revenge and might feel that it would be wrong towards Nozomi. Some people also mentioned his general focus and dedication in the game.
And we have enough macho guys/ladies men in games. It's ok to have a different character like this once in a while.

Thank you, thank you!! That was finally the verbal roundhouse kick that those guys needed who always annoy with their "Ryo is gay" parades.

Well, that's just what Ryo was told to look for. If Liu-san told him to look for members of the Yakuza, he would've done that. If Liu-san told him to look out for scantily clad women offering certain services, he would've done that too. \:D/

Guys, I don't think she meant that she wanted some of his time.

I think she means she wants some of his dick








Fun fact, when I was in middle school, my mom initially wouldn't let me import Shenmue II on Dreamcast because, in the UK, there are certain channels where people broadcast the news, in the nude. She was worried that there might be some risque material, JUST LIKE THIS SMUT, in Shenmue II, which is why it wasn't being released in the United States.
