I didn’t post a column last week, and what a week to skip – there were a number of provocative articles regarding anime and spirituality. But that just means that this column, I’m including twice as much goodness!

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.
