    There are a lot of Shinto themes in all of Miyazaki's movies, but Spirited Away is the one most religion and film students think of in that context. Here's a pretty good article from the Journal of Religion and Film just on Spirited Away and Shintoism.

    Shinto was the state religion of Japan until just a few years ago.

    It has many many followers still today.

    Amanterasu bless you.

    As for the movie. I dunno, never seen it.

    But christians should ask thierselves, what if shinto is the true religion? Maybe they better convert.

    There are a lot of shrines and gods/deities in the film, which relates to its setting [shrines in teh beginning] and characters [gods].
