When I first began Beneath the Tangles, we were 100% editorial-based – I didn’t do any episode-by-episode posts of series. In fact, I didn’t even do my editorials on current series. In 2010, I wasn’t keeping up with current anime. Instead, I was writing about past shows that I had a lot of affection for, like Cowboy Bebop and Tenchi Muyo.
But as writers joined who were, frankly, far more into anime than I am, and as I got into the swing of watching new series, we began posting articles that were a lot more current. A lot of you may have joined us, in fact, because of our weekly posts on Your Lie in April, Mekaku City Actors, Zankyou no Terror, or any of dozens of other shows we’ve blog episodically over the years.
So while our focus remains on our unique content, we remain relevant by discussing shows in the here and now. We also provide preview posts to help you make choices in the jungle of new series each season, and break down completed series through a collection of review posts each season.
Our intent is continue to deliver content that meets our mission, but that also connects with you, the readers, and your interests each season. Please consider helping us continue to craft great blog posts and build community by donating to our site. We’re asking for a $2 a month commitment from you.
