In the Garden of Penguins, a “Professing” Fan of Fullmetal Alchemist, and Kamehameh-AMEN

Last week’s episode of Mawaru Penguindrum contained a parable that contained religious allusions.  Draggles educates us on a gnostic spin on the creation story I was unfamiliar with, as well as the famous myth of Prometheus and fire.  Ephemeral Dreamer also discusses Adam and Eve, emphasizing temptation and the apple while going into detail about this Mary Had a Little Lamb, as well as the nursery rhyme.  A Day Without Me writes that Sanetoshi is clearly a Lucifer figure.  Joojoobees, on the other hand, compares the story to an Amaterasu myth.  inushinde finds an interesting connection in a different myth, that of Hades and Persephone.  Monsieur LaMoe goes into detail about Aum Shinryko and provides some insight about Japanese spirituality following the sarin attacks.

Zeroe4 is looking forward to Fate/Zero, even though he dislikes the use of magic of the power of pride in the series.

The Argus, Wesleyan University’s student newspaper, features Dr. Attiya Ahmad, a professor in the school’s religion department, who happens reads Fullmetal Alchemist for fun.

PanOrient News presents a short profile on Saint Young Men.

I found this Y!A question about DBZ and Christianity quite hilarious.

About TWWK

TWWK, known to outlaws and lawmen alike as Charles, lives deep in the heart of Texas, where he drives cattle and boot scoots (not really - though he does sport a pair of rattlesnake boots). Somehow in this frontier, he also finds time for his wife, children, and church. Oh, and anime, too.
