Spirituality in the Anime Blogosphere: Gundam and Questions of Life and Death

There are only a couple of links this week, but they’re good ones:

Last week, I mentioned that Zeroe4 was beginning a series musing on death from a Christian perspective and in association with anime.  His post in the series sets up context, giving his feelings about life and death.  His next post in the series is really terrific, using anime like Code Geass, Death Note and particularly Gundam series to talk about war and more emphatically, the “war for our lives.” [Zeroe4]

Landon’s post about Samurai Pizza Cats is really a lament about college, including a section on an “evangelical atheist” professor who not only drove him crazy, but challenged his beliefs. [Mecha Guignol]


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.

  1. Inspiring me to finish an article I started last year on similarities between the perception of death in Japan and Medieval Europe…must finish that soon.

    1. Interestingly enough, that show is one of Zeroe4’s favorites, so I wonder if he’ll write about it as he continues his series. You might want to check it out – it’s a very cool (if uneven) show and it’s a Key production (Clannad, Kanon, Air).

      Hope you’re doing well! After your Valentine’s post, I’m now wondering how things are going with that guy you wrote about. 😛
