It is more or less an ease-of-use limitation of git blame.

There are some that want an ncurses only version of git blame
that could
use arrow-key style navigation for historical commit

git gui blame kind of works, but it's not ncurses/text based.
git-cola kind of works too, but it's not text based either.

Are there other existing tools for blame history viewing?
