I was talking about Taoism with a couple of friends from school one day, expousing the benefits of this semi-obscure Eastern philosophy, when one of these said friends pointed out that I had become quite comical, talking about such serious things while wearing an Anime tee-shirt which sported the cocky-looking Ryoko of "Tenchi-Muyo!" fame.
As I proceeded to point out that spirituality and a fondness for Japanese cartoons featuring large robots and incredibly complex teenage love triangles were not necessarily exclusive of each other, a thought struck me; what if I could explain Taoism using Anime? The Tao flows through Anime just as much as anything else, right? If they could do it with Winnie-The-Pooh, I could do it with the volatile relationship of Ranme And Akane.
Well, this homepage is the product of that friendly argument. Hopefully, it will provide an introduction the Taoist concepts which I find so useful, while doing it in an enjoyable, humorous manner. So strap on your mecha and dive in. The Tao awaits you.
