Any recommendations for a drama with religious themes?
Someone recommended "Black Butler" to me earlier today and I'm loving it. Its London setting, its dark mood (balanced out with an appropriate amount of humor--*cue captioned shot of Sebastian's latest dish*), its Faustian theme, its soundtrack (there were Gregorian monks chanting menacingly in the background in the last episode).
Anyone have any more shows or movies with religious, philosophical or existential themes I might try out?
You might like Trinity Blood.
Neon Genesis Evangelion followed immediately by The End of Evangelion.
Watch those then get back to us.

Enemy of the State
Kieli is a manga you should pick up. Its only 2 volumes long but its good.

Great suggestions, everyone. I will check into some of those. And yes, I imagine anime is not really a genre where theologies get developed, but I'm about equally interested in philosophy (I majored in both in undergrad) so I'll definitely take up KT Samurai's offerings. Y'all rock.
