I recently received permission to post artwork from Siya_Ho, who focuses on Attack on Titan among many other series. I posted one of her pieces on our Instagram account, where it received a ton of attention, so I thought I’d bring this fun post here as well! Which character from Attack on Titan are you,… Read More Which Attack on Titan Character Matches Your Height?
What does the lowly birth of Christ in a manger have to do with season three of Attack on Titan, and especially that scoundrel, Kenny Ackerman? Far more than you could possibly imagine. Join Matthew of Team Anchester as he prepares us for Christmas by explaining an unexpected connection. Here’s this week’s CQ (Cast Question):… Read More TangleCast 43: A Very Merry Attack on Titan Christmas
While most of episode 46’s focus was on the shock value of Attack on Titan that we may have forgotten (though this episode was very heavy on being gross—titan brains and guts—than on typical violence and gore), there remained strands of two journeys we’ve followed along this season, those of Historia and Eren. When Historia… Read More Attack on Titan, Episode 46: To Become a Queen
I’m a skeptic, especially when it comes to the “goodness” of humanity—even how it’s expressed in anime. When Nile, struggling with himself about what’s right and wrong, chooses to side with Erwin in doing what he’s feels is right, I almost harumphed. In Attack on Titan‘s fascist society, I felt it would be almost impossible… Read More Attack on Titan Episode 42: Doing Right or Doing Might
Ten minutes into episode 40 of Attack on Titan, I decided to read the Wiki article on Rod Reiss, whom the episode revealed as Historia’s father, to help jog my memory since it’s been so long since I read this portion of the manga. But the article on Reiss was so convoluted that I gave… Read More Attack on Titan, Episode 40: Saving Historia
The first two episodes of Attack on Titan this season have been excellent so far, but they’ve been missing something. Something big. Something titanic. That’s right—besides about 10 seconds of Eren trying out his titan powers, and a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it flashback of Connie’s mother, there haven’t been any titans at all this season. That’s according to… Read More Attack on Titan, Episode 39: No Time to Think
This season, the Beneath the Tangles team decided to do something a little differently. Instead of asking every staff member for a number of detailed reviews, we are asking each staff member who watched new anime during the Spring 2017 two questions: What was the biggest surprise of this season for you? What was your… Read More Spring 2017 Anime Thoughts
All season, I’ve been looking forward to a key death in this series (SPOILERS obviously ahead). For all the deaths that occur, mostly to young people that I think we’re supposed to connect with (no matter how little screen time many of them received), the one I most connected to, and perhaps the most tragic… Read More Attack on Titan, Episode 37: Fail Like Hannes
In the midst of all the fighting in episode 36 (and other than those terrible, off-speed horses, the actions was amazing), we’re inching closer to the central question: what are the titans? There are many pieces that once put together, will present that answer, and one has to do with Reiner and Bertholdt. We know… Read More Attack on Titan, Episode 36: Theirs Not to Reason Why
Reiner is so very confused. At one point in episode 34, after joining with his partner, Bertholdt, to kidnap Ymir and Eren, he complains about how he needs a break and promotion from the military. The problem is that Reiner isn’t a soldier; he’s the enemy, but he’s lived as a soldier for so long… Read More Attack on Titan, Episode 34: Who is the Enemy?
