Appearance Edit

Ryo Saotome
Ryo has long yellow hair reaching down to his shoulders with dark brown eyes. Ryo wears a necklace shaped tag around his neck and a dark blue uniform with a white undershirt that is worn unbuttoned at the top. Also dark green pants and tan shoes with white laces.

Personality Edit

Ryo's glowering facial expression gives way to his personality. In keeping with a school delinquent including a rough manner of speech, being hot blooded and having an unkept appearance. He skips class without a care, receives terrible grades, the list goes on. Despite all this, he is a huge animal lover, freaking out about how cute cats are and is quite friendly if not angered. Ryo also has no problem asking for forgiveness, especially when Mitsuki is not happy and will gladly declare his stubborn kohai as his 'little brother'. He also shows soft tender moments.

Story Introduction Edit

Ryo is fanning himself with a magazine before having the wording of his language analysed by Satsuma. Contemplating it for a moment, he then states that it is not the issue here before asking if it is any way to speak to him. He is touched by the emotional feeling of the song Hinata shares with him.

With Saku joining the singing club discussed more, Ryo thinks it should be easy then as Hinata sets about having him involved.

Episode 3 - Dolente Edit

In the clubroom he advises Hinata to be more assertive in attempting to get Saku to join the music club. He meets Saku in person after accidentally bumping into him on the stairway.
