Bio: Before Yamatai, Yuri's only experience with drums of any kind was the arcade game "Taiko no Tatsujin", in which she repeatedly lost to her 7 year old cousin (definitely because of some sort of technical malfunction though). Fortunately, real taiko drumming involves lots of yelling, which is something she can definitely get behind. Yuri now feels much more prepared to take on her greatest challenge for whenever she goes back to Japan, but is still gonna need some time to adjust to the Sunday morning practices. She looks forward to being part of the Yamatai family!

Food for thought: The only time the word "incorrectly" isn't spelled incorrectly is when it's spelled incorrectly
