Video Interview with Reika

Reika hails from Osaka, Japan.

She is a Japanese cosplayer with 20 years of experience under her belt and one of the most looked upon and sought after Cosplayer internationally. Her charismatic and realistic cosplays of Jinguji Ren from Uta Prince and Levi Ackerman from Attack on Titan, on top of many other successful cosplays has propelled her to the top of her game.

Reika has guested at Animanga events in over 30 countries , how spectacular a record is that?! Reika was a guest at the Sydney Manga and Anime Show (SMASH!) early this august and The Cosplay Chronicles managed to snagged an interview with her.

SMASH! is a Sydney based Anime, Manga and Cosplay event that is held annually with a huge dose of awesomeness. Check out my previous coverage of SMASH by clicking here!

In the short span of 20 minutes, Reika has charmed us with her candid and sincere answer  while we bombarded her with questions ranging from her Cosplays to how popularity has (or has not) changed her. Check the video below!
