Konnichiwa! It’s been a while, hasn’t it? I’m sorry for the impromptu absence: being a freshman in Biomedical Engineering has been quite the new (and busy) experience for me.

The combination of school and blog and Internet has really taken a lot from my time with my family, and even my time with the Word. I’ve been in there a little, but not a very large amount. This has led me to think a lot more about myself…Continue Reading “Update – Unsheathed Hiatus”

Konnichiwa! As Unsheathed has finally started to begin its long journey, I wanted to give you all a heads-up on what to expect in the coming months.

The Winter season is from January to March, the Spring season is from April to June, the Summer Season is from July to September, and the Fall season lasts from October to December. With that in mind, here are the features you…Continue Reading “Plans for the Fall Anime Season”
