Something More: Baby Steps Christian Coaching, One Week Friends’ Bible, and Divinity of the Japanese Language

I’ve skipped posting this column for the last several weeks – apologies!  Thankfully, we’re returning this week with a number of very engaging articles and reviews:

Frank makes some wonderful connections between Kaori’s journal in One Week Friends and the most significant book for Christians, the Bible. [A Series of Miracles]

In Hunter x Hunter‘s moral ambiguity, Annalyn sees an analogy to postmodernist views of right and wrong. [Annalyn’s Thoughts]

D.M. Dutcher has a problem with Baby Steps, suggesting that a coach could serve Ei-chan well, which isn’t a whole lot different from what Christians also need. [Cacao, put down the shovel!]

The Oxford Dictionaries blog delves into the Japanese idea of kotodama, a divinity of the country’s language. [OxfordWords Blog]

Rob reviews recent episodes of a number of shows, including The World Is Still Beautiful [1], The Kawai Complex Guide to Manors and Moral Behavior [2], and One Week Friends [3]. [Christian Anime Review]

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.
