Welcome, Danila! It’s good to see some fresh mea- I mean, new members from some less common places, we’re glad to have you here! I’m glad you loved Umineko and Higurashi (although I haven’t read the later), you’ll find plenty of people here who love both as well.
I’m a second year student myself, and I did Japanese in my first year! Sadly I wasn’t able to fit it in my second year. (Computer Science major) so I’ve had to drop it, but I do a little self study in my free time. If you ever need help with the language, my knowledge isn’t limitless, but I do know some things, feel free to ask.
We all have that problem, getting friends to read Umineko or Higurashi… I’ve been unable to make a single one of mine read it, so you’ve chosen the right place to meet those that have, good job on getting a fellow student to though! And you play an instrument? Almost everyone in my own family plays instruments (Brothers play sax/trombone, etc)… except me. I’m sure you sound fine, trust me, hearing my brothers play their damn instruments all day gets… irritating as hell.
Sorry for the late welcome, Australian time tends to make it a little… difficult at times, and we share your currency dropping woes as well. Needless to say, welcome, and we hope you enjoy your stay at our little tea party.
