As is typical with creative circles, we do look to add to our numbers to increase the flexibility and skill set of the entire entity. Besides KOU, I already had two people in mind when I began EtherFuture, but I wanted to wait until we had gone through at least one legitimate “rite of passage” experience with just the two of us. Ours was AnimeNEXT ’09.
A month later, I felt EtherFuture could take the next step. XION (http://sasionstrife.deviantart.com), our newest addition to the circle, is an essential portion of the next step in expanding our capabilities as a creative circle.
