I find it very interesting at the choice of names in Anime. I have watched some of it years ago and even then the references to after life and names such as Seth Knightroad and other spiritual references are more than a coincidence.

Indeed, Trinity Blood makes a huge Biblical reference in naming their main characters. The whole anime revolves around a drama played by the siblings: Cain, Abel, and Seth.

In the anime series, Evangelion, the first 2 so called "angels" to land on Earth were named "Adam" and "Lilith." A huge twist in the Evangelion series happens near the end when the last angel tells mankind that we are, in fact, born of Lilith, not Adam and Eve. How's that for a mega-twist?

There was also an anime a few years ago called Ah! My Goddess. The main characters in this anime were named Skuld, Urd, and Belldandy. These names were taken from Norse mythology. The Norns (named Skuld, Urd, and Verthandi) were the sisters who weaved fate and chance.

Anime writers do their homework well. They like to weave in factual and mythological data and legends with fantasy and twists to produce fantastic stories that teeter between what is believable and what is wondereful fantasy. There is no entertainment like it in the United States.

I found the wicked battle during the last episode between Cain and Abel. Abel is the demon-looking one. You'll notice that Cain uses a large spear which fans suggest is a reference to the Spear on Longinus. Abel's scythe, I assume, is merely a reference to the Grim Reaper.

There is a short flashback during this clip that shows all siblings when they were younger and still human. Lilith makes a short appearance here too as their mother-figure type.

Lilith is a festival in Ancient Babylon. Mixing the two stories or threads has always been used to cloud the water. Babel is confusion and confusion is the method of operation of the dark side. The Matrix used Christianity and eastern religion mixed to draw you into babel if you were not well studied.

It seems like that would be backwards having Abel as the demonlooking one instead of the evil Cain as found in the Bible?

Actually, Lilith was mentioned in the Apocrypha as Adam's first wife and again in the Dead Sea Scrolls. I tried to find what council it was that rejected the apocrypha, but that's a lot of reading. Lilith appears in the scrolls among a list of condemned creatures (i.e. demons and those who lead man astray), not events or festivals.

Quote:
"And I, the Instructor, proclaim His glorious splendour so as to frighten and to te[rrify] all the spirits of the destroying angels, spirits of the bastards, demons, Lilith, howlers, and [desert dwellers…] and those which fall upon men without warning to lead them astray from a spirit of understanding and to make their heart..."
She also vaguely appears in the King James Bible as a screech owl. I'm not entirely familiar with this reference though.

Well, according to the anime, Cain was originally the good guy like centuries ago. Abel, at this time, was ruthless and murdered hundreds of people. He later took up a life of worship and became a priest and still is as of the end of the series. I'm not sure what happened to Cain to make him crazy.

I'm not sure why they look so different in their Crusnik forms, but it doesn't seem to have much to do with their moral alignment.

I have read the entire Apocrypha by Edgar J. Goodspeed so you might have read another Apocrypha that I did not. Lilith was celebrated in Babylon and it was Cains people that built the hanging gardens in Babylon and so it would fit that Cain and his children would try to bastardize the Bible and the real truth of what happened in the garden. So is Anime and the Pagan religion tied in any way ?

No, Paganism has no more ties with anime than Christianity does. Writers just like to use mythology and sometimes religious lore in their stories, but they aren't meant to be a verison or rewriting of them. There are as many animes with Christian themes as there are any other, but many of them are religiously neutral.

Even some of your childrens animes have some touch of mythology and religion. In the 4th season of Digimon, the main characters are lead by 3 "celestial digimon" named Seraphimon, Ophanimon, and Cherubimon. These 3 names are obviously taken from three notably high ranking angels in the Hierarchy of Angels: Seraphiel, Ophaniel, and Cherubiel.
