It still works out cheaper for me since I live in Norway, Amazon use couriers and that item has $39.70 shipping charges but on here massdrop is really reasonable, just $7.58 with shipping

I don't get it. It shows more information expensive on Amazon.
I've painted professionally and have taught watercolor for years. Sakura has always been student grade.
These are definitely more student grade than artist grade, they are pretty but lose clarity quickly when you try to mix colours and also tend to have lower lightfastness. Good paints for sketching though.
Aren't these the chalky watercolors ? :( Im still tempted to get one because of all the color options!

Some are, some aren't, but they tend toward chalky, yeah. Some colors are also pretty weak/thin regardless of how much you presoak, so that's something to consider too.
Are these student grade? Or professional grade?

These are considered "Studio" grade.

I was wondering this too since Blick recently listed these studio sets and placed them under Artist grade, and I thought that maybe it was a new formulation, but when I went to look, per https://sakuraofamerica.com/water-color-studio-sets : > High quality student grade half pan watercolors, formulated to blend easily
I'd list Koi as above average for student grade, but if you're looking for professional grade, it definitely won't compare.
