This week I have three Shintō related entries.
ikigami (living human deity) 生き神
Kojiki (Record of Ancient Matters) 古事記
Nihon Shoki (Chronicle of Japan) 日本書紀
It is interesting that I could not find the word ikigami actually used in Kamichu! If you find it there please let me know the reading on your DVD player so I can add it to my notes.
Of course it is also interesting that the one case where I have spotted the word is in an action show where the main character is hitting on a novice Catholic nun.
Check back next week for more religion related entries.
