Duel of the Fates (and Penguins), Jesus Anime = Bad, and Anime and Religion for Buckeyes

The Mawaru Penguindrum front this week is headlined by Kylaran’s post on how fate is symbolized through the “visual landscape of the show.”  The analysis of all sorts of items related to the fate within the show, including extended talk about the fruit and it’s relation to sin and other ideas, is deep and well-thought-out.

Meanwhile, ajthefourth discusses fate and choice over at Altair and Vega, using Adam and Eve as an example.

A short Jesus film, animated by a Japanese animation studio, was released earlier this year.  Sweetpea of Paper Chimes reviewed it, and she was not impressed…no, not at all.

Katie continues to review Christian OEL manga by amateur artists with her strongly positive post on SteeKira’s Broken.

Finally, if you live near the Ohio State community, you may want to attend a Anime Punch’s lecture series this coming Thursday, as it’s focus will be on anime and religion.


As part of the Spirituality in the Anime Blogsophere series of posts, 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.
