yes Net heaven is perfect.Should you be one of the fortunate ones to be worthy to move to that plane of existence you would be a being of light w/ the power and pure mindset of God(only God would be in charge + have infinately more power). You coul simply pluck any planet in the universe that you desire, give it an Eden-like ecosystem and create real-life anime characters to watch and have fun with.

I think this would be an interesting forum!

However ... If you were reincarnated, what anime character would you like to come back as?
For me ... hmmmm ... okay, this one is a bit tough!
I think there are a few, but the one that is coming to mind for now is Lenalee ... from D. Gray-Man.
She is cute, confident, and able to come out of any struggle despite moments of being unsure of the situation and/or out-come.

We're told that paradise is timeless and pleasant, but not necessarily full of luxury. So, you can probably watch anime, but only anime that has actually been created.

If you're anything like my sons, I believe you are on the "road" of achieving those qualities without having to be reincarnated.

True perfection yes. Speaking from a Christian background two big shifts will take place.
1. The sinful nature, or rather everything that makes us crave wrong and the entirety of human struggle will be gone (no spiritual warfare or demonic junk either).
2. The author and genesis of all good things is forever within sight (Scripture says he will be the sun, or rather take the place of the sun). The result will be perfect faith, perfect security and perfect relationship with love itself.

A couple other things to note.
- We will still have a creative spirit. (So anime is a possibility)
- We won't be miserable (God himself will wipe every tear from our eye)
- We will love more genuinely
-We will understand more
-We will not be angels
-There will be an entire new world to explore. (a perfect one untouched by sin)
- Things such as pride and arrogance won't exist
-There will still be relationships with others

However the crux of it all come down to a relationship with God this side of eternity. Its really very simple, love Jesus, respond to Jesus, spend forever with him. All it requires you to do is admit your imperfect, realize that you need help and that you always needed help. Ask for help and then hardest part of it all LET HIM HELP YOU. He can't step where you don't let him. likewise there is no place he can't step if you do.

Hope this helps...

Lol. Well, speaking from a Catholic background, I believe anime won't be needed there. But in any case, the story in the Bible (found in Luke 20: 27-38) about the wife who married 7 brothers came to my mind:

(27) There came to him some Sadducees, those who say that there is no resurrection, (28) and they asked him a question, saying, "Teacher, Moses wrote for us that if a man's brother dies, having a wife but no children, the man must take the wife and raise up children for his brother. (29) Now there were seven brothers; the first took a wife, and died without children; (30) and the second (31) and the third took her, and likewise all seven left no children and died. (32) Afterward the woman also died. (33) In the resurrection, therefore, whose wife will the woman be? For the seven had her as wife." (34) And Jesus said to them, "The sons of this age marry and are given in marriage; (35) but those who are accounted worthy to attain to that age and to the resurrection from the dead neither marry nor are given in marriage, (36) for they cannot die any more, because they are equal to angels and are sons of God, being sons of the resurrection. (37) But that the dead are raised, even Moses showed, in the passage about the bush, where he calls the Lord the God of Abraham and the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob. (38) Now he is not God of the dead, but of the living; for all live to him." - (Luke 20: 27-38)

Basically, Jesus is stating the wide difference between the state of things (which include material things like video games and yes, anime too) in this mortal life and in that which is to come: that things even like marriage while necessary here, will be unnecessary hereafter.

Also, I will quote a little bit (without all the footnotes - otherwise this post would be even longer!) on the topic of Heaven as it is in the CCC (Catechism of the Catholic Church):

1023 Those who die in God's grace and friendship and are perfectly purified live for ever with Christ. They are like God for ever, for they "see him as he is," face to face.

1024 This perfect life with the Most Holy Trinity - this communion of life and love with the Trinity, with the Virgin Mary, the angels and all the blessed - is called "heaven." Heaven is the ultimate end and fulfillment of the deepest human longings, the state of supreme, definitive happiness.

1025 To live in heaven is "to be with Christ." The elect live "in Christ," but they retain, or rather find, their true identity, their own name. For life is to be with Christ; where Christ is, there is life, there is the kingdom.

1026 By his death and Resurrection, Jesus Christ has "opened" heaven to us. The life of the blessed consists in the full and perfect possession of the fruits of the redemption accomplished by Christ. He makes partners in his heavenly glorification those who have believed in him and remained faithful to his will. Heaven is the blessed community of all who are perfectly incorporated into Christ.

1027 This mystery of blessed communion with God and all who are in Christ is beyond all understanding and description. Scripture speaks of it in images: life, light, peace, wedding feast, wine of the kingdom, the Father's house, the heavenly Jerusalem, paradise: "no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man conceived, what God has prepared for those who love him."

1028 Because of his transcendence, God cannot be seen as he is, unless he himself opens up his mystery to man's immediate contemplation and gives him the capacity for it. The Church calls this contemplation of God in his heavenly glory "the beatific vision": How great will your glory and happiness be, to be allowed to see God, to be honored with sharing the joy of salvation and eternal light with Christ your Lord and God, . . . to delight in the joy of immortality in the Kingdom of heaven with the righteous and God's friends.

1029 In the glory of heaven the blessed continue joyfully to fulfill God's will in relation to other men and to all creation. Already they reign with Christ; with him "they shall reign for ever and ever."


Ok, I'm done now. Let the flaming begin...

"Heaven" and "perfect," two words that seem to be very important but are seemingly meaningless in the face of reality. Sorry, but I'd choose life on this rock and the flaws of humanity over any "heaven" and "perfection."
