Spirituality in the Anime Blogosphere: Samson, InuYasha, and Wearin’ Hair

Niko Sylvester wrote an interesting article for Mania.com this week about “hair shirts and legendary” pelts in anime and manga.  He focuses on two pieces in particular – GeGeGe no Kitar and InuYasha.  The post isn’t particularly focuses on religion, but Niko does mention myths and folklore, and begins his piece with the story of Samson (while also mentioning the Bibilical leviathan).  Niko’s an expert on this topic – I recommend you give it a read!
