i was browsing oricon and saw this:
some sort of talento ranking and Ryo is in there! I can't understand the whole article (translation please?) but I kinda understood that HE'S THE ONLY MALE in that ranking. Nakama Yukie is first, followed by Kuriyama Chiaki then Nakashima Mika, and some others like Shibasaki Kou. Oh Meisa, whom I call Mercy (thanks to her character in Haikei) is one rank higher than Ryo. So I guess this is something Ryo can be proud of. There are also comments on how he's "so very cool/handsome".
EDIT (2208 local time): ok, it's the ranking for raven-haired people. but what does the article say?
