Akira's best friend, who is the one responsible for him becoming Devilman.

Akira's best friend, who is the one responsible for him becoming Devilman.
Devilman. He's very loose on morals and believes in extreme mothods in order to wipe the demons. Ryo is also very possessive and territorial towards Akira and dismissive of everyone else.


Added DiffLines:

* BerserkButton: Don't hurt Akira in front of him. Hell, in his introductory scene, he pulls a rifle at the Dosu Roku gang who were picking on Akira!
