25 Things You (Probably) Did not Know about Ryo:
★His special nckname for Hiroki Uchi: Honey Toast and Piroki
★He is basically a righty, but he got fractures on his Right arm so he uses his left hand a lot. (he cant bend his right hand well)(That explains a lot for me! Like how he cant dance well sometimes!)
★Ryo likes to read a lot of books. Mostly Non-fiction. He loves the Da Vinci code. he likes to read about various subjects.

★In an interview with NEWS where Ryo was absent Keii-chan said "He keeps on going on until he collapsed. He kept persevering even though he did not feel well and he did not tell anyone." Massu added that,"He worried us.He kept on shouldering responsibility when we can share it. " Shige also said that "He is our Aniki. I call him like my older brother since I have no siblings. He always takes care of us before himself." Tegoshi also said "We hope that he would be ok. " (What happened, Ryo-tan?! *panic*)
★When he was shooting the drama One Liter of Tears he kept on slipping into Kansai-ben and he kept on ad-libbing and adding things to it even after he had spoken the speech.He studies the script at home and when he goes to the set, he tries not to have any script and acts like Asou all the time. (I want to see! OMG *flails*)
★He plays the role of an intimidating boy with his speech and he's the cool guy of NEWS but he is really an extremely shy person.

It is my first ever feature and I am happy to say that it is Nishikido Ryo!
Ryo is an older brother to NEWS and that appeals to me.Even though he can act bitchy at times, he is really one that is most concerned for the boys of NEWS and Kanjani 8. He shoulders responsibility and allows the others to just enjoy themselves. Ryo to me is a wonderful person. Who shows the world that he is REAL. Ryo has no pretenses about him. He is what he is, no matter how sharp they think his tounge is.
He is not the most handsome guy but he is hella charming and that appeals to me the most... I mean, just look at his smile! I DIE! That hazukashii smile got me hooked and since then, Ryo-chan is my #1
