I like the idea of religion being put in a manga form, just for the aesthetic possibilities, but I fear that it will be one more transparent way to make archaic religion look contemporary. I think that there should be more historical manga, and maybe one that explores the origins of multiple religions, without being propaganda for any one. However, even though I am all for edu-tainment in the right doses, there's nothing I hate more than something that's overtly preachy, or comes off like a text book thinly disguised as a manga.

I was poking around the web when i found this article:
(http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2007-08-24/christian-manga-bible-with-japanese-artists-announced)

I'm not Christian but his seems like it could be a pretty coll idea, some people are saying its a desecration of the bible though, personally i don't care if it goes either way, however I am curious about what people her think. Whats next a anime bible???


If the manga is drawn by Yoshikazu Yasuhiko (pen name: YAS), it will automatically be awesome and I'd read it if I could get my hands on a copy.

*reads article*

EDIT: Wait, HE IS one of the artists! I'm gonna try finding one of these!

I don't see the good in making a bible in manga form.
It's like making an anime that will lecture you; I'm sick of lectures so I'm going to pass on reading this one.
If ever I want to read about Christianity, I can just stay after class in School.

Manga version of Bishounen Moses
"Oh no, the sea! How will we cross the sea? "
"I guess I have to use 'that' technique..."
"That technique?"
"Level 82 Attack: Part the waves!"
"Impossible! How can he use this attack...."

i think its a good idea im cristian btw

people are forgetting that the bible is only a tool to get across god's words so if this 'manga bible' gets god's message to a few more people then there is nothing wrong with it

Actually I don't know how deeply japanese understand christians and I have a feeling they are just doing it for the money and not for the sake of religion. On the other hand, it COULD turn out pretty good and not only a low quality manga stating Jesus as some kind of a magical superhero. And if it ends up with misconceptions and foolish ideas all over- well thats just too bad cos it can't do anything to damage Jesus:)
