Please join us for a welcoming, supportive, free-form discussion in which everyone's perspectives will be heard and appreciated, on subjects related to religion in anime and manga.

What have you seen that stood out to you as having religious or spiritual implications? Or as using, or perhaps misusing, religious or spiritual symbols? How has it felt to you to see such? What would you like to see done more, less, or differently?

Our panelists include:
Guy Letourneau, AMV guru of Kumoricon
myself, coordinator of Creation Station
Anat Rabkin, award-winning novella writer

and our very special guest: Carl Horn from Dark Horse Comics!
Carl is the editor for Viz of Ah! My goddess and Evangelion manga!

You won't want to miss this!

Our panelists run the gamut of personal religious and spiritual experiences from various denominations of Judaism, Catholicism, Christian Orthodoxy, and intuitive eclectic ritual. All people welcome of any faith or philosophy.

Sunday, 5p-6:30p, Workshop room. Hope to see you there!

I liked this panel, it was quite civil and informative, we could have gone on sharing stories and info for another hour I bet.

I wish more people could have come, we closed the doors after a bit cause it was so hard to hear over the hallway.
After that people would only peek in then go away.
