Specifically 'Iscariot'.

Though discussing that would be more organizational than religious in nature.

Leave it to the Japanese to describe western religions in debth and how they operate... yeah, that's the same as asking me to describe Shinto in the same manner.

if you think about it
bleach is a religion (don't know how to call it )

you cannot absolutely be more wrong.. bleach is not a religion.. it is an anime retard.


i didn't call Bleach anime a religion
i've just said that the bleach philosophy is somehow like a religion


i know my english is poor but don't call me retard straight away


technically, religion is a belief, culture and individuals who celebrate rituals. soul society and all are completely far away from what religion is truly about.


and what they celebrate in haruhism ;p

for me religion is something like a description of the universe laws (e.g: souls go to soul society after death) so it counts :D


wht do u mean by that


i don't know how to describe it precisely
which part you don't understand?

Really.

Religions based on animes are disappointing.

I've hardly seen any example of an in-universe religion.

Main problem is that few, if any at all, animes use religion/s as central element of the plot. And when I say central plot I don't mean how it's presented in, I don't know; Trinity Blood, Hellsing or Angel Sanctuary. Yes, there are references to RL religions, but the focus is still on some super-powered protagonists. My guess would be that animes avoid it since its a controversial question how it would be presented.

Why don't they make use of developed fictional religions? Beats me.

isn't haruhism counted more like a fan group rather than a religion?

Ishbalans from Hagaren, the Vatican and the God Hand in the Berserk manga, also there were those cultists from G.I.T.S. 2nd.Gig, those that killed themselves on the roof of that building.
