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?

This… Read More Attack on Titan, Episode 33: The Danger of Community
A number of of us on Beneath the Tangles have a passion for fan art, those wonderful pieces that fans like you and me (but with amazing talent and honed skill) create. I’ll be posting illustrations, mostly developed by artists who have accounts on Pixiv, from time and time. Today, I’m introducing some wonderful tarot… Read More Anime Fan Art: Attack on Tarot
Traitors. Traitors! How could could Reiner and Bartholdt betray mankind? How could they start all this destruction that led to so many deaths, including those close to the cadets? Episode 32 starts with a bang (and the animation and CGI stay awesome throughout) as the titan shifters collide. Eren Jaeger is of course especially angry… Read More Attack on Titan, Episode 32: A Titanic Perspective
