Ryoya was the first SD Graffiti boy to be released. His body is an upgraded version of the SD13 boy body, with the jointing system and stylistics based on the SD17 boy body. He has the same hands and feet parts as the SD13 boy body, and he is the same height and with the same overall basic measurements, so he can wear SD13 boy clothing without problem. However he seems to be somewhat slimmer overall in the torso region. Like the SD17 boy, he has a double-jointed torso, double-jointed elbows, double-jointed knees, and a swivel thigh joint.
Although Ryoya was originally intended to only be available for sale until sold out on the day of Dolpa 21, due to the overwhelming demand from fans in advance of the event, Volks decided to offer a limited number of pre-orders for him as well once the actual numbers of him sold out. Pre-orders also sold out completely and are due to be delivered in mid July.
Those who purchase Ryoya were given a special application form to apply for 'Ryoya's Suisei Academy Junior High School Uniform' if they wished to purchase it. This item was sold by lottery to applicants and was not a guaranteed purchase.
Ryoya comes with his left ear pierced to allow you to insert his earring. He is the first Super Dollfie boy to come with a piercing, and one of only two ever. (The other is Olivia 2nd.)
Ryoya is a part of the 'Tokyo Boys Story' story arc, along with Shirou, Tsukasa, Isao, Yukinojo, Jun, Olivia, and Ami. He is the new protagonist of 'Chapter Two' of the story, which is set four years after the initial story.
In some shots Ryoya was pictured with a Tsukasa on an SD17 body. However this version of Tsukasa was not released at that time; he was a display model only, perhaps to emphasis the time that has passed since Chapter One of the story.

To someday meet that person, Joe...

Even now Isao talks about Joe so cheerfully, but I barely know him.
Back then I was just a kid, and all I could do was watch the four of them from afar.
All I have is just the vaguest memory of those incredibly broad shoulders of his, the other three gathered around him.

I wonder if someday, the day will come when I meet him face to face.
I hear he's in my hometown of Los Angeles.
If Tsukasa says he just has to go, maybe I could go with him...

Ryoya Konoe. It's been six years since he joined the Konoe household.
Ryoya has finally come to accept this name, and to being called the second son of the family.

Coming to accept each other's presences, and living together in the now.
This is the bittersweet "now" of these boys; their chance encounters with friends and family.

Tokyo Boys Story.
Welcome our newest protagonist, as the "now" of these boys who first found each other in Tokyo at long last comes alive.
