I am not sure what to make of this, but St Paul's famous verse about "seeing through the glass, darkly" is used in the original "Ghost in the Shell" anime film. The quote is actually significant in the story's development. Hard to say, what sort of spiritual clout St Paul possesses in the world of anime, but the situation is probably similar to what is sometimes experienced in the West: religious texts from distant lands are perceived as intrinsically profound, mysterious and almost like hidden knowledge of unfathomable magnitude.
