We have a treat for you on today’s TangleCast episode! As part of yearlong celebration of Beneath the Tangles’ tenth year, we brought back some of the original voices of the podcast, including its founder, Japes! He’s joined today by Casey, Kaze, and R86 as they share how anime has changed the direction of their lives. Not just a hobby for these four, anime has helped them see the world differently, affecting them in personal and spiritual ways, and for most of the group, has also put them on specific schooling and career paths. Join the guest crew on this special throwback episode! (Warning: Check out the time stamp below to skip a short spoiler on Fruits Basket!)
