My friend introduced me to osu! 6 months ago, and I still remember how he raged when he taught me how to play it lol.

And here I am.

I discovered this cool new rhythm game for the DS called Elite Beat Agents in Nintendo's Holiday 2006 catalog, and really badly wanted to play it. I ended up not playing it until I picked up a DS flashcart in 2008, which led me to discover that it was a westernized version of this Japanese-only rhythm game called Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan. I ended up beating both games, as well as the Japan-only sequel Moero! Nekketsu Rhythm Damashii: Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan 2 (that name is still fun to say). I got good enough to beat them all on Hard, but still to this day haven't beaten any of the games on Insane (due to the incredibly punishing HP drain).

Then after my DS lite broke in 2009, I still had a craving for that rhythm-based circle-clicking gameplay. I discovered a PC clone of Ouendan in 2009 known as osu!, and immediately quit after bringing my playcount to about 12 (partially due to the difficulty from playing with a terrible wireless mouse at the time, but also because osu! lacked the fun storyboards that changed depending on how well you were playing. I also came in with the mindset that only the "authentic" maps were good, so I didn't even bother even looking at most of the maps that people made).

I then rediscovered osu! in 2012 after getting back into anime, playing a bit of osu!droid (and complaining about how laggy it was), and realizing that my new laptop was perfectly capable of handling the game. It was then when I realized how much progress has been made with beatmapping since I first discovered the game, and I think it was this video (or at least a video of this map) that kindled my desire to get good at the game. And after nearly 2 years, after all sorts of osu!-related setup changes, here I still am!

i was looking for a game for asians
This might be weird but a few years ago I was totally in love with The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya and after random search that was based on it (on Youtube), I came across the beatmap and was like "aww dude this looks cool".
Next thing I know was that I hit that download button and started playing this awesome game.

I was in the mood for Taiko back then around 2012 april, with some help from Google i stumbled on a pc version of the game, played Taiko mode on Osu and didn't like it, prefeedr much more on the standard mode

Fast forward and now i'm here grinding my skills clicking on dem circles.

I was a new Vocaloid fan at the time, and I'd found a few gameplay videos.
About 11 months later (more or less), I came to the site, slapped the download button and started playing.
And, here I am.

Basically two germany Letsplayer brought me here (https://osu.ppy.sh/u/476241 and https://osu.ppy.sh/u/501813 (both inactive :s)) since they were streaming it from time to time.

2 years ago, a friend told me about the game, and I saw some videos. I thought that the game was really cool, and started playing. And I went back to play, with this new account.

i first heard about it while playing latale years ago, i asked about it and it didn't really interest me since i had no interest in rhythm games back then.

then when i started playing was when my friend told me to play osu, i decided to give it a try. Got addicted instantly ;w;

Airgearxtream told me to download the game because he said it have anime openings. He taught me first CtB. Then I saw people talking about osu!standard in #osu, so I played standard too.

(he was raging when i don't follow him)

Saw it on YouTube, I was basically jumping around and clicking at random videos and I stumbled across an osu! video. It was a replay from some top-tier player, don't remember who, but I remember thinking, "Woah, this game looks like it'd be addicting, I'm going to try it out."

I was right.
