The new season of fall anime has arrived, and the TangleCast has got you covered! David, Peter, and Holly run through the slate of popular returning series this season, as well as a number of the new ones that piqued their interest. Come take a listen as you figure out what to try (and what to avoid) this autumn! We also have a fun game where the team “drafts” anime characters for a basketball team, and we’d love for you to tell us who’d you pick in an anime v. Space Jam game!

And we want your feedback as well! Each week we ask a question on the podcast and feature your answers on the next episode. Here’s this week’s CQ (Cast Question): If you could choose any one anime character for your basketball team, who would you pick? Better yet, give us your entire starting lineup!
- As Peter mentioned, he and Twwk are super excited about more Chihayafuru. Lucky for you, Kaze got to take a sneak peak at the first episode, which is still a few weeks out from airing.
- Our light novel club covered the first volumes of a couple of series airing this season—Ascendance of a Bookworm and and Didn’t I Say to Make My Abilities Average in the Next Life?! We highly recommend both volumes.
- New to Psycho-Pass? The first season, as the team explains, was highly acclaimed.

Hey, Thanks again for the Tanglecast. I always enjoy your content.
Thank you so much for your encouragement! If you ever have any ideas for us or a topic in mind, please let us know! 🙂

myles.netherton (MUTUAL): Major Matoko Kusanagi. I would actually just leave it to her. She’s ridiculously agile and trained for any level or stimulation of combat, her thermoptic camouflage inhibits her to be seen or tracked…anywhere, and just how entertaining would it be to see animation of her caliber up against the bad guys from Space Jam??
Ellie, little.pink.witch (MUTUAL): i would pick eren bc he could just go titan and destroy the other team, i win 🙂
Cory, kokorodaki (MUTUAL): Yuu Otosaka from Charlotte (this isn’t surprising, is it?). he can briefly possess any person to permanently steal any powers that might have and use them himself, so amazingly powerful opponents benefit him, and he’s already got a bunch of great powers, so less powerful opponents aren’t a problem. his mental state is… questionable at the end of the series (but that’s not really a bad thing for a superpowered basketball game, right?)
aranchopancho_official: I Need only hisoka 🔥🤡
__childish_brandino__: ya made me think but (pg) Shikamaru Nara cause floor general, (sg) saitama (sf) Uchia Madara cause we all saw the iso vs the shinobi alliance, (pf) armored titan cause stretch 4’s these days (c) All Might. Then off that bench (pg) Shinobu Kocho cause you got a bit more athleticism than your lazy smart starter, light footwork, agility, floaters touch, (sg 6th man) Speed-o-sound Sonic cause speed kills, fast break, cuts to the basket, (sf) 9 tails cloak Naruto with all those hands for D and you need a talk no jutsu guy to motivate your team when they are down. (pf) 1st Hokage, (c) Koro Sensei with all those tentacles and speed he getting blocks and lobs.
maria_cuty95: So a team of 5, my team will be: Minato Namikaze from Naruto because of his Thunder god jutsu, he is so fast no one will know what hit them. Deku from My Hero Academia because of his strategic ability and his power. I would like to have Vegeta because of his determination and pride, although he wouldn’t like to play. Tomoya Okazaki from Clannad, although he has an injury he knows the rules of basketball, and I will go on a limb and assume no one in the team knows them. And lastly Wendy from Fairy Tail, because like mentioned in the last podcast about Tsunade, she has the ability to heal, although to restore stamina, plus she can use any kind of support magic so that will be super helpful. I don’t know if we could win but it will definitely be fun 😂
zhockerzo: Pg: Me, SG: Jotaro Kujo SF: Broly PF: Armored Titan C: Colossal Titan.Bench: Adult Naruto,Natsu Dragneel,Elfman Strauss,Sinon,Lavar Ball. have an extremly tall team I got to say.

Marian, marsyyan: Osamu Dazai to cancel out all superpowers of the other players who are NOT his teammates :3 But Dazai might get fouled out because of touching other players
shirtlesskaneki: Saitama, Soul, Maka, or Death the Kid
Cecilia: I love this question! My answer is super lazy but I’d pick the members of the Karasuno High volleyball team (haikyuu) because they jump high and have great teamwork! 😂
Judy, (Kusuguru Usagi): A few characters I thought of are: Makoto Kino, aka Sailor Jupiter, Alucard (Hellsing), Alexander Anderson (Hellsing)
