Announcement: August Vacation Coming

Scenic Digby -a gorgeous town in western Nova Scotia.

Good evening readers. Tonight, I’d like to take a moment to announce that I’l be taking a one-week vacation in August. I’ll be venturing to the not-so-frosty lands of Nova Scotia from August 13 through 17. During this week, I’ll be unplugging from most networks. I’ll be off of Twitter, away from Facebook, and unavailable to answer your e-mails and inquiries. Because of this, I apologize for the inconvenience in advance.

While I won’t be around to answer communications,, I still stand by my commitment to provide you with quality content in a timely manner. As we get closer to the date of departure, I’ll be preparing content while also reaching out to our staff and other members of the community to ensure that we don’t see gaps in coverage.

As always, I’d like to express my gratitude to you, dear reader. Without you, there is no Anime Herald. Thank you, as always, for joining us.
