About Us

If you’ve just stumbled upon this site, you may be wondering if this is some sort of joke, some ironic take on religion.  After all, can we seriously be looking for Christianity in anime?  There’s no reasonable intersection between the two, right?

It’s true that there’s very little intentional overlap between Christianity and anime.  Thankfully, that’s not what our site is all about.  When an individual is born-again, she begins to see God’s story of redemption everywhere – in nature, in relationships, even in media.  Paraphrasing Timothy Keller, for the Christian, every story has two parts – the one the author tells and one that reflects the gospel message in some way.  Anime is no different.

We invite you to join us on our journey as we look at anime through a Christian lens, and Christianity through anime and manga.  We hope to create a safe community at Beneath the Tangles, one where we can explore and question spirituality and religion as we chat about anime, and where people of all faiths (or none at all) feel welcomed and are eager to engage in discussion.

Mission

Beneath the Tangles bridges the gap between anime fans and the Christian church by discussing Christianity as expressed through anime and demonstrating faith through interaction with our readers.

Vision

Beneath the Tangles is developing a community where our staff members can use their passion for anime and Japanese media; love for God and for people; and skills and talents to reach out to the English-speaking otaku community and share the gospel message through our words and actions, participating in the Christ’s command to teach about faith and make disciples.

    Hey it’s really awesome to run across your site. I’m a fellow believer and I’ve always thought that Christians should have a voice in popular culture and on popular culture. It’s really cool what you guys are doing. Keep it up!
