For me, personally...


#1: Ryo Hazuki. Who else could it be?
#2: Nozomi Harasaki. She's cute and innocent, and it genuinely makes me sad that it didn't work out between her and Ryo. I personally hope she comes back, perhaps by being kidnapped by Lan Di.
#3: Iwao Hazuki. He isn't alive for long in the game, but his words are still with me to this day. "Keep friends, those you love, close to you."

Ha. the yen scam has been caught  :D


I'm not going to go with Ryo. I'm going to go for Gui Zhang, Iwao Hazuki and Jianmin. Very similar reasons to James and how words stick with you. Learn valuable lessons from these folks.

1. Xiuying Hong. She is brill.
2. Shenhua.  Mysterious, mystic, enchanting, feral, and containing power that is belied by her innocence
3. Tom. 


Good shout with Jianmin Rob, it was between him and Tom for my 3rd spot. But obviously it had to be Tom.

Oh easy!

Ren (reminds me of a pirate and I always liked pirates)
Xiuying Hong (I love the fact she refuses to help Ryo yet helps him - bloody weirdo!
Joy - I never really liked nazomi as a Love interest for Ryo - shes too well weak for him. Granted Ryo is about as bright as a black board when it comes to knowing a girl likes him, but I always found Joy to be the better pairing for him

Agree with this. I'd never beaten Izumi before my post the other day, but having played on a bit now, she's all over him and there is no reaction. When you say goodbye to her for Kowloon, she starts asking him to spend the day with her and come back to her place and he's just like - Nope, Cheerio!

Well thats my problem with Ryo hes just so one demensional... we have had two games... 5 chapters and he has had no growthat all, despite the fact Nazomi was potrayed as the love interest I just never got the impression he cared that much for her... 8bviously he did due to the late night rescue he mounts late in chapter 1, but even then it didnt feel quite right to me. In the second despite the wude, hongs teachings etc, ryo again doesnt grow any. Though to b3 honest id heard this was to change in number 3

I think Ryo has shown some growth in the final chapter of Shenmue II. It's not super obvious, but it's not meant to be.

My favourites are probably Ren, Fukuhara and Shen Hua. All for very different reasons.

I disagree about Joy. You see, currently Ryo is seeking revenge. It would be quite easy to get in over his head, and an influence like Joy could cause him to blindly pursue that course. However, Nozomi could have kept him grounded and helped him realise that revenge won't bring his father back, only put those he loves at risk. I just think it would fit the narrative better; Ryo isn't a trouble maker.

Really hard to choose, but probably Xiuying, Ryo, and Shenhua. Minor characters, Cool Z, Mark, and Tom.

The question should really be, who are your favorite npcs?

Mine are MArio Grianni, Itoi san, and Kurita san.

How about you guys?
