 You know, I love it when he comes out of nowhere and hits you with his powerful Jesus ray
OF LOVE.

So yeah. I'm not sure if others share this sentiment, but Jesus is awesome. 

And after how many months, I'm reading a manga that caught my interest, about a demon who met an old priest and then became a priest himself, and an angel that was supposed to deport him but instead fell in love with him. 

Although you can read it yourself ;) It's sweet, it's sappy, and actually very well-versed in angel/demon hierarchy, from dukes to dominions, from cherubs to marquis. 

And it's shounen-ai, in case you've got issues with that.

Four scans from volume 3. 















I'm one of those people who knows Jesus=love and hugs and other awesome things.

Believe what you will, but my faith lies in the Jesus that will say "I love you" and that's as huggable as this:





In case you're wondering, yes I made that Jesus plush toy and yes I'm studying for our Christian Life finals exam tomorrow. While reading manga. Yes.

That's quite something. The medium isn't my favourite (nothing against shonen-ai as such, just not my favourite), but the message? Great stuff.

I recall a priest whose church I went to who used to note that Jesus must have been HELL to be an apostle for. Not just the fact that he had the sheer charisma to achieve what he did, nor yet whole endless forgiveness thing going on (which must have been magnificent to watch, but be a bitch to live up to... I should add I'm paraphrasing the priest here), AND the balance-upsetting lessons (many of which would have been pretty much groundbreaking to the Jewish society of the day), but that he would have been like that ALL THE TIME! How do you keep up with that?

The notion of Jesus even loving a demon because, perhaps, he sensed there was hope for redemption there, or even that it didn't matter whether there was or not, is pretty darned fantastic, and the phrasing works too.

Yeah definitely not a pushover, and the Apsotles must have been a fairly odd looking bunch to boot, fishermen, tax collectors and the like, hardly a genteel crew.

The love would be there for sure, but there would be a determination behind it which might be either invigorating, or potentially terrifying.

Oddly, and possibly blasphemously, I'm reminded to the scene in Wonder Woman where she discusses the effects of carrying her lasso with her all the time. It means she can never, even if she wants to, look at things through rose tinted glasses, she sees things as they are, all the time.

There's also a line in the "Common Grounds" series where an immortal character mentions meeting him, and when asks, all he'll say is that he was "the nicest guy you'd ever met". Now, that never quite rang true to me, I can see Jesus as many things, but I never see "nice" as being his primary adjective. It's a worthy adjective to be sure, just... not quite right in that context. IMHO

Endless forgiveness is a relative term. I remember quite a few passages in the Bible where Jesus was basically saying, "God, humans suck! How much longer do I have to put up with this crap?"

Crowley/Aziraphale 4eva, yo.

Is the guy saying he will love him Jesus? Because if so, Jesus has way better hair here than in any other depiction I have seen.

It's a good message. I always found Jesus pretty soothing.

In romance manga (be it shoujo or shounen-ai), everybody is pretty. EVERYBODY.

Here, this is what Prince Charles of Wales looks like in shoujo manga form:

This is really good art. I love how the men look very pretty, yet obviously male.

And while I'm agnostic, I love the portrayal of religion here. I'm so used to see religious people portrayed as bigoted (although, to be fair, the most powerful and influential religious people do tend to be bigots; I'd much rather trust a priest than the Pope), it's really refreshing to see a portrayal that focuses on the "be excellent to each other" part.

I don't have a problem with shonen-ai.

I can quit anytime I want!


(Seriously, though, love the manga ^_^.)
