Here I am, rock you like a hurricane!
Hello @Miterosan Don’t worry too much about Pandora! We’re all friendly here, I swear. My guess is you tried to join in the Discord too soon. We have a rule that makes it so you must obtain the “witch” badge (which takes like a week I think, if not less) first. We do this so that a bulk of the focus stays on our lovely forum. After all, the forum is and always will be the heart of Rokkenjima!
The best way to get involved around here is to follow along with our tea parties (which follow the Steam versions of Higurashi)! We have a podcast at the end of the tea parties (which you can participate in)! I recommend checking out the spoiler free sections for all the arcs we’ve covered (1-5), or listening to the podcasts to get a feel for our community and the theories we create! I also recommend rereading Kai on Steam along with everyone else! It’ll make the experience better! In the meantime, you can check out the newly translated arc, Someutsushi! It’s fairly short, but it’s still fun!
However, if you want to talk about the stuff that happens in later arcs now, you can! You can talk about the full series as a whole, or spoilers on an arc per arc basis. We also have all of these things for Umineko (which if you haven’t read yet, please read Umineko)! There are also other fun 07th Expansion content on this site, like Higanbana, Rose Guns Days, Iwaihime, Hotarubi, and TRianThology! I recommend checking these out too if you’ve never heard of them! I know that some of them (Higanbana and Rose Guns Days) have been translated into English, so if you haven’t read them yet, please do!
Of course we also have other ways to get involved! We have a place to talk about general gaming, visual novels, your favorite movies, pets, dream crossovers, you can share your MyAnimeList and VNDB, and you can even talk about your favorite caffeinated beverage! There are plenty of ways to get to know people around here! As Vyse says, there are a lot of other Germans running around too! I think @SuperM, @Aurarcane, and @Replicator are German too!
I really hope you enjoy it here! Now, go! Make some new friends!
