I am Tidulimar, either Tidu or Limar for short and I am from germany.
My first contact with Key was through the Clannad anime - I cried so much, but I still loved the whole experience, the characters, everything. It left a big hole that was hard to fill for a while.
Many years before that, I stumbled upon a Visual Novel in the internet mostly by chance. It was Kana~imouto~, and I really enjoyed that type of storytelling. However, I only read one route and did not continue persuing VNs for a while.
A year or two after watching Clannad I decided to look for more of these since I really liked the medium and I just quit the MMO I was playing and had a lot of time to fill, and only having heard good things about Key/Visual Arts, and after that Clannad experience, I explicitly looked for their newest entry first - at the time: Rewrite.
And uuuh boy did I have a blast with Rewrite. I read it within a few weeks and I completed it this time, all the way up to unlocking the secret ending - just a little bit before the first anime season started airing. I knew I needed another Key VN to fill the void it left, and got LB right away.
However, I slowed down. A lot. The MMO had me back and I started playing a bunch of offline games I did not have the money for. I continued LB every now and then, and finished 2 routes, just to find out about the official english release coming out soon.
I knew about this site for a while - when I read Aspirety’s route reflections on the super old blog - but I did only read a bit. Now, with the english version release of LB coming up, was the perfect opportunity to sign up!
Oh, and I also watched Angel Beats at some point :).
I am happy to finally be here and excited to contribute in the conversations you have here!
Edit: I realized I forgot I wanted to talk about what else I like here - after typing that wall of text I just forgot about it.
Outside of Visual Novels I enjoy very similar media: books, video games, music and anime - though books kinda lost a lot of priority nowadays. I also sometimes do some simple programming which I enjoy, but never something big. With my friends I enjoy role playing - like Shadowrund and other systems. To be honest, most of my time I enjoy “with” people is just socially doing things I could do alone as well :O.
