Yuri the Princess of Lies, an Impossible Anime Dream, and the Christianizing of Princess Mononoke

Draggle continues to draw connections to Gnosticism in Mawaru Penguindrum, but this time also quotes Milton and discusses the “Princess of Lies” connection with the “Prince of Lies.”  Vucubcaquix investigates the parallel between Yuri and Satan even further, calling it the “most provocative idea in this episode.”

Zeroe4 reflects on the impossibility of his dream to create anime, before emphasizing his faith and his willingness to fight for it.

Daniel Mumby graciously offers apologies for those offended by his earlier analysis of Christian themes in several Miyazaki films.

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.
