What are some stories you see commonly referenced to in anime?
Get in here /lit/.
The bird fights its way out of the egg.
The egg is the world.
Who would be born first must destroy a world.
The bird flies to God.
That God's name is Abraxas.
So what books (obviously no LN or manga) did you guys read because of anime?
For me: Genji monogatari, pillow book, alice in wonderland, diary of anne frank (and I would love to read Shin Sekai Yori but I can't into moon).
