As part of the Something More series of posts (formerly Spirituality in the Anime Blogosphere), each week, Beneath the Tangles links to writings about anime and manga that involve religion and spirituality.  If you’ve written such a piece or know of one, please email TWWK if you’d like it included. 

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.

  1. I haven’t watched any animes lately. Tha last one was Summer wars that my bro bought a year ago. It was a very good anime. … won international awards too, and was a nominee at the Oscars last year.

    And I’m into romance genre for quite a while now. Tsubasa Chronicles spoiled the genre for me. Too convoluted ! ! So much that the authors just ended it irrationally.


    • Oh, really? That’s disappointing to hear – although I never got around to it, I always wanted to watch Tsubasa Chronicles. :P

      You might consider watching Sword Art Online – more of an action show, but with a really heavy and development romantic plot that is central to the series. It’s currently airing.


  2. The ” genre” meaning other than romance shoujo.


  3. The word ‘Sayaka Miki’ caught my eye. After a read through the er…’Silly Blog’, I found it quite fascinating. Thanks for the link!
