So a funny thing happened on the way to the blog migration...or rather migrations. Those of you who have followed us for years may remember that in early 2016, we moved from WordPress.com to WordPress.org, and just last month, we made our way back to this platform. Unfortunately, our WordPress followers didn't make it (despite… Continue reading Re: Another World Where You Once Followed Our Blog But Should Follow Again (or Follow Us Anew)
"It’s just not safe for young girls to go into events, especially in costume. We’re vulnerable." It’s been more than three years since “Cosplay is Not Consent” signs were erected throughout New York Comic Con. The movement, which seeks to educate about actions that should reflect common sense and decency, is now firmly set in… Continue reading Cosplay is Not Consent, but Danger Still Lingers
It's a good time to be a geek. Marvel, Star Wars, and Game of Thrones are the prime properties in Hollywood. Even the subset of geek culture known as otakudom is even getting in the game. As much as Ghost in the Shell was maligned (though I thought it was enjoyable), it's amazing that property… Continue reading Top Ten Arby’s Anime Posts

Thanksgiving is my fav-fav-favorite holiday! I just absolutely love it—the smells, the tastes, the feel, the sights. It's a day I look forward to every year. I also love how that, even if we forget to actually be thankful on this day, the idea that Americans travel the country to eat a big dinner with… Continue reading Happy Thanksgiving!
That's right, today is Pocky Day—and for Koreans out there and others who otherwise prefer Lotte Pepero, its Pepero Day, too! (A little trivia: Pepero Day is just as much a marketing tool as Pocky Day is, but it also has a Valentine's Day kinda feel in Korea and even in the U.S. among Korean-Americans.)… Continue reading Happy Pocky (and Pepero) Day!

I am not a fan of horror anime. I used to love scary movies, but that time has since come and gone. Nowadays, I stay away from things that give me frights, and am even more wary of series that feature gore/graphic violence (sorry, Inuyashiki, I barely knew ye), frightening or otherwise. But I can… Continue reading Seven Creepy Anime for Halloween (That Aren’t Too Scary)
We placed a call out for additional staff some weeks back, and today we're happy to announce the addition of two new writers to Beneath the Tangles! Teresa Christina isn't a new face here on the blog - she's partnered with us for several years now and may be familiar to you all because of… Continue reading Q&A with Matt and Teresa Christina, Our Newest Writers!
