Spirituality in the Anime Blogosphere: Fashion, Madoka, and Redemption

As I blogged about a week or two ago, the anime blogosphere was set ablaze with posts about the final episodes of Puella Shoujo Madoka Magica, with many focusing particularly on the spiritual aspects that were clearly being emphasized.  I wrote a post in that vein as well, which coupled with another spiritual post I wrote regarding the series.  I just couldn’t get enough of the Christian themes I saw in a series I regard as one of the very best I’ve ever watched.

And the post just keep coming.  A few days ago, 2DT wrote a most interesting post analyzing the series and it’s spiritual nature from a viewpoint I would’ve never though of – magical girl dresses.  What do the dresses of the girls in the series tell about them?  Particularly, what does Madoka’s dress say about her ultimate actions in the series?
