Suicide attempt, disappearance and departing. (Ryuu in melvel)

Things like this makes me so sad, and I really hope he will be alright.

Back in September 2015, melvel’s bassist ryuu tried to kill himself by jumping from a balcony.
The reason was problems within the family.

And probably depression.

Ryuu survived and recovered with intensive care at the hospital.
I believe he was back on track with the band in January 2016.
So many of us was hoping that he would be OK by then.

But a while ago, the band lost contact with him.
And he didn’t show up for their one-man live this July 7th.
That was very worrying.

And as many melvel-fans have feared for some time now, it has been announced that ryuu departed on July 16th due to bad mental condition.

I’m pretty sure that the band found him and that they all came to this conclusion. They knew what he’s been through before and wouldn’t exclude him without knowing he’s OK.
Thank Goddess he’s still alive.

Ryuu is a young and depressed young man and things have become too much for him.
I believe there might a huge pressure on the members of a band.

It’s a good thing that he only focus on himself for a while.
And I hope he gets all support that he needs.

Please get well, Ryuu!

When I watched the music video below, I noted how happy Ryuu looked. Apparently he wears a mask – like most of us.

Welcome! This is not an actual news site but a personal blog, run by an ordinary person who loves visual kei. This is my space where I ventilate thoughts and values and shares happenings within the scene. My goal is to make information easy to access and to support artists and movements that I admire. Especially smaller bands that need an extra push in the djungle of major bands. English is not my native tounge so please condone my linguistic mistakes.
