Hi there, everyone!
My name is Len. I’m a 22 year old from California. One of my friends told me about this place, and so I was interested to see what it was all about, since I recently just jumped back into the fandom since I just finished reading Onikakushi recently and am now on Watanagashi. I first got into Higurashi back in middle school because I saw a lot of videos on it on Youtube, so I marathoned a bunch of it late at night on a computer and absolutely fell in love. Of course, I hadn’t known about the visual novels at that point until later on, so I pretty much started with the anime. I then read all of the Umineko visual novels - since I had heard that was by the same person who did Higurashi and read through those as they came out.
If you look at my avatar, it’s clearly obvious who my favorite character is. I also love Bernkastel and Ange from Umineko, but honestly, I love everyone from the Higurashi cast? I’ve also read a bit of the Higanbana manga but haven’t gotten into Roses Guns Days which is probably something that I should amend at some point.
As for interests outside of 07th Expansion, I’m into a lot of video games as of late - Dangan Ronpa, Ace Attorney, and Zero Escape especially. I also enjoy the Final Fantasy series as well as Kingdom Hearts. I am also a huge animanga fan - as for things I enjoy, they are wide and varied, but stuff I’m mainly into are Pokemon, Haruhi Suzumiya, KEY anime (and visual novels!), Fate/, Detective Conan and a bunch of other things. My anime list also pretty much shows the stuff I’m into. Although it’s a bit outdated.
Other than that, I’m a roleplayer who enjoys writing and voice acting and singing. I actually sang a cover of Naraku no Hana during middle school in front of the whole school, so that’s a thing, I suppose.
Nice to meet all of you, and cheers to some interesting discussions. (Although, I am, admittedly, a bit shy at times.)
