First there were OS-tans, then ship girls, now there’s Puritan. A Christian newspaper called Christ Weekly recently announced a new comic strip containing anthropomorphized denominations. One of the characters, Puritan (of the pun Puritan) will be a middle school girl while her brother Reformed Church (Kaikakuha-kun). Other details about this endeavor are, unfortunately, not here at the moment.
It will be interesting to see how it plays out, and I hope it’s received well, as this would not be the firs time religious figures played out in manga form.
