Happy Fiftieth, Ryu!

They grow up so fast, don't they? Street Fighter characters, that is. One day, they're just a bunch of pixels in your favorite arcade game. Next thing you know, they're being cast in live-action dramas including one regrettable movie with Jean-Claude Van Damme.

Sigh.

Enjoy middle age, Ryu. It's pretty damn impressive if you've been able to actually maintain that 150-pound fighting weight after all these years.
