Something More: Vic Mignogna’s Faith, Gods and Demons of Anime, and Servant x Whose Service?

I missed this big bit last week (thanks to Frank’s site for pointing me toward it) – Vic Mignogna, noted voice actor, discusses faith extensively in the ANNCast. [Anime News Network]

And speaking of Frank, I highly recommend that you read his excellent article regarding Silver Spoon and Servant x Service about how we should value and love people and what it means to choose our own paths or God’s. [A Series of Miracles]

Yumeka dives extensively into the world of gods and demons in anime. [Mainichi Anime Yume]

D.M. Dutcher investigates Dog x Scissors and in doing so points out that a Christian ideal that many find sexist perhaps isn’t that offensive after all. [Cacao, put down the shovel!]

Angelica Belle discovers the Manga Bible series. [Angelica Belle]


As part of the Something More 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. You … really should write about Vic’s podcast! At least I’m super curious as to what your take is (and more relevantly, the various fan opinions and reactions regarding Vic)

    1. Thanks for the interest! I did mill around with the thought, but truthfully, I didn’t even make it through the entire podcast – Vic’s thoughts were mostly the same as I’d heard when I interviewed him. Though perhaps a post about fan opinions regarding Vic might be more in order…

  2. Thanks for the shout out. I’m glad to know there are whole discussions and blogs based on this new art form and how it intersects with Christianity. That’s cool.

    1. Not a problem – it was nice stumbling onto your blog! I encourage you to look into manga; while the form has certainly grown in popularity over the last decade (every Barnes and Noble has an aisle or two dedicated to it), it has existed for quite a long time as, more or less, Japan’s version of the comic book.
