Hi! I’ve been lurking for a bit and decided to introduce myself! I live in America. I’ve watched the Higurashi and Umineko anime (Higurashi first), and have read the first three visual novels of both. I’m currently reading Umineko in particular right now and am really into it. I might go back and read Higurashi some more some day though. I first got into the series in 2009 and 2010, but only got back to Umineko with the English release. I read the first couple Umineko visual novels on online playthroughs, but when they were removed I just kind of stopped. I was only 16 at the time and I couldn’t see my parents letting me get Umineko when it didn’t have a true English release. Since Higurashi got an English release on ios around the same time though, I got into that. I got back into Umineko with the official English release and really love it.
I found out about Rokkenjima from when I read somewhere that there was a spoiler free Umineko podcast. I kept that in the back of my mind, and wanted to see if I could find it just by looking up “Umineko spoiler-free.” And that led me here. Since I’ve been so into Umineko lately, I really wanted to read more about it, but have been terrified to look up stuff about it. A mystery series seems like the worst thing to get spoiled, so I’m really grateful to have found a place I can go without worrying about spoilers. I need to get out all my excited energy, so this will be perfect. I haven’t been into forums for a long time, so I might not post too much. But I’ll definitely browse the forums a lot and might at least give some thoughts on Umineko after I finish each chapter.
I like video games, anime, animation in general, and I enjoy to write a lot.
Edit: Oh frick, the site’s closure was announced after as I make my first posts basically. As long as the forum archives are still available, I’ll still be happy to enjoy the thoughts after that. And I’ll still look forward to having an enjoyable time in the last bit of time that the site is open!
