Applesauce is interesting. I’ve hard it lots of times. I mean, here in the good ‘ol U.S of A, it’s the premire children’s snack. Well, apart from a healthy dose of Goldfish, Cheetos, and other corn syrup-laced foods. Yet, if you were to ask me how applesauce tastes, I’m not sure I could really describe it other than “like applesauce”. Is its’ taste distinct? Does it have a texture and feel all of its’ own? Yes. It’s unique, and yet not easily known, despite how … Read more Me.
Before we get started, let me get this out of the wa: Happy New Year! It’s a brand new day, the joy is high, and we ride together towards the sunrise of 2018. It’s been a long year, full of change, mystery, and discovery. Yet through it all, it’s been amazing. Hope flies high like the proverbial bird, but 2017 has been the year I’ve finally seen the sky myself.
As of today, June 22, 2017, it has been officially 2 years since my first attempt at writing a blog post discussing anime and my faith, way back when on Google+. Time really has flown, and so much has changed. From the site to my writing style to even the amount of anibloggers I knew, I still can’t believe how much the blog has evolved, and how I’ve changed because of it. I’ve gotten to meet some really amazing people, and been able to participate … Read more 2-Year Anniversary!
I looked in the mirror this morning, and I couldn’t see my face. I drove to work this morning, ate my breakfast, sat down at my desk. I talked with people. I couldn’t see their faces. They couldn’t see mine. We laughed. We parted. I’ll go home tonight to my family, maybe visit some friends. All of us, faceless. Hiding behind the masks we call ourselves.
Today I wanted to try something different on the Asian Music Friday (I seriously need to come up with a good name for that) feature here on Unsheathed. Analysis is fun, band introductions have their place, but I wanted to speak more directly to you all and share my personal journey into KPOP. How I got into the sphere of Asian music, and how I changed as an individual because of it. It’s a period of my life that I simultaneously love and yet kind … Read more My Story
Looking back on the year and a half that I’ve been writing here at Unsheathed, it’s amazing to see how far I’ve come, to say the least. From random ramblings on a Google+ page to the full-fledged website that I word vomit on now, it’s been a very unique experience. I’ve especially enjoyed coming into the larger aniblogger community; even as small as I am, I’ve managed to carve out a small niche that I feel grows with each post. It’s been so much fun … Read more Dealing With Indirect Peer Pressure

A lot of things come only once a year: Christmas, Thanksgiving, your birthday. Each of these is a special occasion because of the event that the celebrate, the memories that they hold, and the promises for the future that they bring with them. And today we celebrate a most momentous occasion: the first birthday/anniversary of the Unsheathed blog!
Out of all the shows that this anime season has brought me, I’d have to say that the most fun for me to watch has been My Hero Academia. Don’t get me wrong, I do love the more serious, gritty tones of Joker Game and the ridiculous psychological mess that is The Lost Village, but MHA has kept me entertained and interested in the characters in a way that resonates with me more than the other shows, and for good reason. It touches on aspects … Read more An Explosive Personality
Hello everyone! I’m sure you were expecting me to post the last in my series on BIGBANG’s MADE album, and I was as well. I’ve been writing a lot and I’ve got a lot of different ideas floating in my head about how to approach it, but that’s kinf of become my problem. I’ve basically been word vomiting all over the Word Document I have for the article, and I’ve got nothing concrete to show you all. I express my heartfelt apologies. I believe that … Read more 죄송합니다! – I’m Sorry!
