Great Stuff For Anime Fans

Looks at Anime through the lens of Christianity, highly recommend!

Good stuff

This podcast provides good thoughtful content on a neglected area, the intersection between faith and anime. It’s fascinating stuff.

Nice Lagniappe for Your Anime

The podcaster is very articulate and is good at patiently constructing a theme. I learned something extra about Berserk today which the podcaster paired in an interesting way with what happened during his religious retreat. This podcast seems like a good way to occupy my mind when it would not otherwise be occupied.
