How I heard about Ryako
Twill Distilled from Wreck The System was chatting with me and asked if I had heard about Ryako. I did not at the time, but I looked her up right after I heard about her.
The funny thing is that she joined the chat room when we chatted about how cool some of her songs are. Much thanks to Twill to tell me about Ryako.

Wreck The System:
I am lucky to live in Belgium, the same country as Ryako. She private messaged me about a musical which she participated in. I went to the event.

Brussels Light Opera Company
The event itself was enjoyable. I had never been to a musical before. I had, however, seen “Little Shop of Horrors” which is a musical. I highly recommend it and Ryako also likes it.
The costume designs were neat and the actors performed well in my opinion. The Chorus was great as well. I enjoyed it and was not disappointed.
The play was “Kiss Me, Kate” written by Samuel and Bella Spewack with music and lyrics by Cole Porter. A musical adaptation of Shakespeare’s “A Taming of the Shrew” directed by Fred Graham.
Talking with Ryako
Ryako did not have much time, but she was very kind. She gave me a bag with merch, gave me a hug and we had a chat.
She gave me a lot of merch (including a T-shirt which is not in the picture since I was wearing it). I expected to get nothing, but I got so much. She was able to do so much in such a small time.

The picture with her was made pretty quick. It is not my best picture, but it is nice that it exists now.

She did not have much time to work on the Full Of Stars video and was pretty exhausted. She also was busy with the Nerdcore VPC which you might know. I believe that she will make it in the genre. Her voice is great.
She will have more time for music now that the event has passed. I wasn’t able to ask a lot of questions because of the time. She also likes Twin Peaks which is awesome.
More about Ryako
I find her website well designed. I usually don’t like all caps, but it fits the design. It also contains a text game if you look good enough.
She blogs from time to time. It is a nice thing to read if you like her.
