Something More: Christ and Hikikomori, Anime as an Escape, and Christian Lessons in Senran Kagura

Kaze writes a lengthy and I think very important article for all Christian anime fans to reach about his experiences and suggestions regarding otaku and hikikomori in Japan. [Nana の Kaze]

Annalyn poses the question, “Is it okay to use anime as an escape?” from a Christian perspective. [Annalyn’s Thoughts]

D.M. Dutcher finds some points Christians can take away from Senran Kagura, a surprising source for such lessons. [Cacao, put down the shovel!]

Dutcher also takes a look at Pokemon X from a Christian perspective, as well from that of a gamer. [Cacao]

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.
