Spirituality in the Anime Blogosphere: Natsume Yuujinchou and Living with Spirits

One purpose I hope to accomplish through this blog is to help readers understand Japanese religion better.  The Japanese religious system cannot be pegged in simple terms.  It is also both unique to Asia and similar to other Asian religious traditions.

That said, one blog I often read had a recent posting about personal practice of Asian religion.  Specifically, it discussed spirits while making parallels to the much-loved series, Natsume Yuujinchou.  The post is a very interesting read, and I hope you’ll check it out!

Living among the spirits; do you believe in Nyanko-sensei? | Canne’s anime review blog.

Update: Canne later wrote a terrific post for Beneath the Tangles describing her religion, which includes a belief in ghosts.
