Mileposts: Kirito x Asuna, Karuta God, and I Can’t Believe This Got a Thousand Hits
  Periodically, I like point back to some of the more than 900 posts we’ve written here on Beneath the Tangles.  “Mileposts” is about blogging milestones – those little breakthroughs when posts hit certain numbers of significance in terms of hits.  Three articles recently hit such mileposts.Happily...

Summer Anime Pickups – Futsuu no Joshikousei ga [Locodol] Yatte Mita: First Impressions
 It hasn’t escaped my attention that when there is a genre of anime that I’m not a fan of there’s always a “but”. For example: I’m not a fan of magic girl series but my top anime of all time is Puella Magi Madoka Magica; I’m not a big fan of mecha series but my #2 top anime of all time is...

 Now that I finished up with the spring season final impressions, it’s time to move on and begin focusing on the new anime of summer.When I did the preview post for this season, about a month ago, I focused on series I thought would be the best. By and large these ten titles (nine, actually, Kantai...

Sports Anime Should Be about Art
  This below post was kind of something that came to mind after I hit “publish” on the previous post, and it’s too big to just edit into my previous post. So. To summarize my last post, I am just complaining that sports manga/anime stories shouldn’t be taking sports just as a...

Sports Anime Is Really about Character Development
  This is the trigger, but I gave this topic a lot of thought over the years. And it still is kind of the same thing. The problem about sports anime is that isn’t about sports most of the time. I think it might mean I should give ESPN’s oft-praised 30-for-30 a try, because as they say in...

Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)

The quest for good sports anime
Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  An off-hand comment by Nova how he boycotts sports anime reminded me about this: I had pretty poor record with it. Not that I boycott it strictly like Nova, but I never was enthusiastic about it and neglected the genre. It is high time for the neglect to be rectified. The recent failure of Yowamushi...

Aldnoah.Zero Wins Round One
  I haven’t sampled everything this summer season but I think I’m at a point where I can comfortably say I’m ready to take my picks and go on. Part of this is thanks to not having to worry about 2 noitaminA shows, because of the double-length Psycho-Pass rerun. Part of this also has...

Baby Steps - 15
  I'd love to see what this guy could do on clay.Tennis, like all sports, has a good number of peculiarities about it.&nbsp; I personally don't think there's another sport that so heavily centers on the battle of minds and wills that takes place in every competitive match, and I think more than...

Manga of the Month: 87 Clockers
 87 Clockers (87超频者) by Tomoko Ninomiya There are several web sites devoted solely to telling you if Abe Vigoda is alive or not. He has been reported as dead by several major news sources over the years to the point that is has become a running joke. In a way I feel 87 Clockers needs the same...

In my last Chihayafuru post I alluded to the 2009 British Open as a model for what was playing out.&nbsp; For those of you not sports fans, that was the event in which Tom Watson was one hole - one putt - away from winning his sixth...

Why I Like Sports Anime?
 As I found myself following quite a number of sports anime this season, I can’t help but to take a step back and wonder why I like sports and competitive game anime. Over the seven years of me watching anime, I’ve watched many sports anime such as Bamboo Blade, Slam Dunk, Chihayafuru, Kuroko...

Media Month in Review – May 2014
  I use this post to go over all the media consumed/experienced over the past month, with 2-4 sentences per item. A way to give short thoughts on each topic. Movies: Only anime-films this time around. Didn’t catch anything this month either. Hope to fix that with both films at home and at the...
