Something More: Serve Like a Librarian, Arrogant Aldnoah, and Doraemon Temple

The fall season is in full swing!  But the articles below are largely for series from seasons past (not that it’s a bad thing to reflect on shows we’ve already finished).

Frank has been commenting on Hanamayata all season long, and concludes with a post covering Christian themes in the final episodes and the season as a whole. [A Series of Miracles]

Frank also extols the virtue of servanthood, as demonstrated in episode 2 of Daitoshokan no Hitsujikai. [2]

Although not specifically about anime, I”d be remiss to leave out Taylor’s recent post on Legend of Korra and facets of Christian spirituality. [Taylor Ramage’s Blog]

Continuing a trend of mixing anime with Buddhism, Doraemon has been painted onto an ancient Thai temple. [Kotaku]

Rob reviews season one of Aldnoah.zero, and adds in some commentary on the value of humility. [Geeks Under Grace]

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.
