[Site News] Greetings
I am DaCrowz, founder and administrator of Cards on the Table. This website exists in order for myself and a few other media critic friends to share our thoughts and opinions on content such as anime, manga, comics, movies, and television series. We understand that media can be good and enjoyable simply by virtue of being entertaining. However, we also understand that just because something is entertaining does not necessarily equate to it being well-constructed, inventive, or engrossing. Our goal is to break down and analyze media to not only help more selective consumers choose their entertainment but to also view media from a critical standpoint and gauge the effectiveness of the creators’ creative decisions.
