Judaism and Anime
Hosted by Froborr
From the crossplosions in Evangelion to Madoka's use of Faust, anime is full of Western references. But Christianity isn't the only religion whose myths and symbols appear in anime. From the legend of the Golem, without which there'd be no mecha shows, to putting the Sephiroth into everything, Jewish symbols and stories are everywhere, too. Join us to explore the Jewish myth and folklore used in such popular anime and games as Pokemon, Evangelion, Gurren Lagann, Fullmetal Alchemist, Final Fantasy, and The Big O.
