New Kazuma Kiryu’s suit and hawaiian shirt for Animal Crossing: New Leaf.
They go really great with the Kazuma Kiryu Mii over here (by the same designer!)
Kazuma Kiryu in Hot Shots Golf 6 DLC trailer released!
Kazuma Kiryu coming to Hot Shots Golf!
Hot Shots Golf: World Invitational (Everybody’s Golf 6 in Japan) will soon be getting a new DLC character. Kazuma Kiryu will be making his PS Vita debut as a $5 DLC with new voice recording exclusive to the game; reports Siliconera.
There has been no official word from either Sony, Sega or Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio and no official source can be found. Also it is unclear if he will make it out of Japan and become available for purchase in the US.
Note: The picture at the top is from Yakuza 3.
Haruka and Kazuma by きちろうじ
This may be my new favourite fanart. Love it.
Why I love Yakuza 3. Summed up in one image by 斤染.
A lot of people didn’t like the orphanage stuff in the beginning of Yakuza 3 saying it broke the pacing of the game. Personally, I loved it. It was good to see Kazuma after the events of Yakuza 2 trying to live a normal life. It set the tone for the game and later when the kids were in trouble you actually cared!
How often do we play a game where the protagonists child or love interest, that you’re not invested in, is kidnapped or killed and you’re expected to care? Yakuza 3 gave a character to every child, every person in Okinawa. Made you care for them by being a caretaker, provider and friend.
What some people consider the worst part of the game I think is one of the best story/character setups in the medium.
What is Akiyama looking at when he comes in to frame?!
I am d’awwwing so much right here. Seriously. I should not find Kiryu so bloody adorable.
BUT JUST LOOK AT HIM.

Here is a translation of the conversation between Kiryu and Haruka in the Ryu ga Gotoku 5 demo. This is clearly a reference to the first game!
- A dog being attacked by punks
- Young girl named “Haruka” dressed pretty much the same way as Haruka from the first game
- Her real father is dead, just like the real Haruka
Hey, thanks a lot!
No problem. You’re not hurt, are you?
If you like, I can walk you home
But… I ran away from home after a fight with my dad
You ran away from home?
I still don’t want to go back yet… Dad is surely mad at me
…What’s your name?
My name? It’s “Haruka”
Haruka!? Heh, so you even have the same name
Huh? As who?
<screen fades to black>
So you’re living away from Haruka?
Yeah… I don’t think we’ll see each other again
Huh? Why? Why not?
There are many reasons. To be honest, I do want to be with her,
but I guess that’s nothing more than selfishness on my part
Besides, I had reached my limit pretending to be her father.
Perhaps the time was right to move on
What about you? Why did you run off from home?
He’s not my real dad
I guess I’m a lot like your Haruka, aren’t I? How mysterious…
My real dad died a long time ago. My current dad is usually really nice,
but the store hasn’t been doing too well lately and he occasionally yells at me
I stormed out the house after saying “My real father wouldn’t yell like this!”
When I mentioned my real father, he just stared at me with a look of real surprise on his face
At that moment I knew I said something I shouldn’t have. That’s why he didn’t chase after me when I left
Yeah… Both dad and mum are probably glad to be rid of me…
So I can’t return home…
Where is your house? I’ll go and get your father
Relax. He may be a little shaken up, but he’s not a man who would be glad to see his daughter run away
Besides… It’s a parent’s job to bring back kids who run off. Kids should wait for them
Where is your father now?
…My house is a store named “Port Gale Tea House”. My parents should be working there
“Port Gale Tea House”, huh? Alright, I’ll go and get him. Wait here for a bit
Great work as usual by KHHSubs
This one to!
In his fifties. No way. Look at that precious face.
Just like his voice actor/face model Takaya Kuroda <3
Although I’m pretty sure they’re both still in there late 40’s!
