Melissa Costa began her visual kei adventure in 2005, but was already a fervent visitor of concerts in the local rock and metal scene since her early teens. Seeing many bands perform in both Europe and Japan became her dream occupation. Melissa is about to finish her B.A. in Japanese Studies at Leiden University of The Netherlands. Her passion for languages and writing made her want to pursue a journalistic career, and now she is in Tokyo to bring the heat of the live-houses to you.
