The Tangles Anime Podcast: Episode 10

For episode 10, JP (Japes) will be giving a bit of a commentary on his impressions of life in Japan and what it means for a Christian otaku. The episode takes place on the scene, in the mountains of Kanazawa, Japan, and due to this drastic change in topic and formula, the episode is significantly shorter than usual. Next month’s episode, episode 11, will also feature a different podcast layout, but will include both Charles (TWWK) and JP (Japes). Thanks for listening!

  1. What you described about Japanese Christians always eating together after church… that sound very beautiful. It sounds less like a social club and more “familial,” as you said, like an extension of your family, and even as something of a loner, I long for that sort of community.

    1. Agreed! It’s one of the best things about the Japanese church, I think, and something that seems to be ignored by Christians sharing about Christianity in Japan for some reason.

      1. The funny thing is all the churches I’ve been to were fairly large (maybe smallest was like 100 people) so I also haven’t experienced those after service lunches, but this is obviously a combined effect of being in Tokyo and going to international ones rather than Japanese ones. Honestly kind of disappointed in myself in not exploring other churches. Maybe I should make an effort to do so in my few remaining months…

    2. Also on this topic, I thought I should mention that Korean churches to the same, at least in my experience. I went to a number of different Korean churches growing up, and each one sat down for a homemade meal in the fellowship hall after service. I remember helping my mom prepare one or two of these meals.

  2. Despite not being Christian I actually really love this podcast. Really glad I stumbled across this one. I enjoyed hearing about the lifestyle you live in Japan at the moment and learning about the Christian culture in Japan. Keep it up, your podcasts are great!

    1. Thanks, it makes me really happy to hear that! Next month the podcast will also be covering my time here, so I hope you’ll check it out!

  3. I just now got to watching this episode and it is interesting hearing about your second time in Japan. I am sure it is very different.
