Spirituality in the Anime Blogosphere: The Tetragrammaton and C

I haven’t been paying much attention to one Spring 2011’s most highly anticipated (and by now, maybe most disappointing?) shows, [C]: Control: The Money and Soul of Possibility.  But after reading Michael’s latest post at Anime/Otaku, I’m keen on giving the show a chance.

Michael makes some interesting connections between the summoning cards in the series and the Tetragrammaton, which refers to the name that Jews used for God, YHWH.  You’ll realize the significance of God’s name if you’re religious background has some relation to Judaism, or even not (my first understanding of YHWH, after all, wasn’t from church but from Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade).

He goes on to include connections involving the Qabalah religious tradition (I’m not sure if he’s referring to Qabalah or Kabbala – my knowledge of these is at the most, very limited) and the tarot.

This post is really a continuation of a series of posts about C and these connections.  Earlier, Michael went into detail about tarot mysticism and discussed the Qabalah further.

Please visit Anime/Otaku and read the entire post!
