Congratulations to Ryo! He's the first NEWS or KANJANI8 member to take home one of these awards, and despite what I initially thought, and despite what certain others say, I really think he deserves it. Last Friends had a lot of potential, and though it certainly went down hill half-way through, it was still well put-together, and Ryo, Eita and Juri did a good job with what they had to work with. I'm certain some people will say Eita deserved the award for BSA more than Ryo did, but I think if anything can be used against that statement, it's ryo's performance in episode 10. It took some serious acting chops to be able to evoke in viewers even a smidgen of compassion for Sousuke after all he put Michiru through, and Ryo pulled it off with aplomb. Wow, I should really stop proving what an eternal pessimist I am. I shall end here.
Congrats to the little one!
