I just found out today that people think anime/manga is evil. When i saw what people are saying i say"HUUUUUH!?!"
Apparently some people,MOSTLY Christians, are saying anime is evil and will go to hell and whatnot for watching it. I honestly think people who are like that are hypocritical.
First of all watching anime would be a sin wouldnt it? and another thing dont u think it is impossible to NOT sin? everyone has sinned. im betting if ur reading this right now u hav sinned at least a few times. People lie, steal a cookie or two, or cursed once in a while when hitting a door. i know i have done those three and am a little sorry for it. But becuz we have sinned does NOT make us into major sinners who are going to hell 100%. Hasnt everyone heard the Christian saying that all are equal in front of God's eyes? and Jesus died for our sins? When you're in front of the Gates of Saint Peter do you think you'll be judged to go to hell just for watching anime?
If i meet a person who tells me anime is evil and says im going to hell ill tell the person that theyre going down with me if i am.
also here are some links:

That Riuva link is the most stupidest crap I have read in my entire life. Anime is what you make it to be. Excluding anime, there are movies out there that have violence, suggestive themes, and or suggestive comedy. Does it mean those TV Shows are evil? Not really, if someone becomes a murder because of a TV show, it doesn't mean that show was evil, just that person wasn't smart enough to know what was right and wrong. This puts the same topic of video games are bad, because it turns people into ruthless killers as it has in TV Shows and in real life. TO ME, those people are too weak think that such thriller can be made in real life as in video games esp when something as extreme as violence. I'm sure a few of you have watched an anime and wanted to kill that person so bad or yell at that person so much you'd break your computer if you couldn't hold it in anymore. Does that mean you'll kill a real person if you have the same urge? I hope not. People have motives which technically is a sin depending on what the motive was, but as long you don't get tempted by the motive, I don't see anything wrong. We're human, God of all people know that. Even if you're a person who doesn't believe in the God, it shouldn't stop you from doing what is morally right. Evil is what you make of it. In the end, Anime itself isn't evil... if you're so obsessed with anime you call it your God, then well you could call that a sin. But if it's a hobby or whatever, I don't see what's wrong with watching anime or even loving it. In the end everyone sins, it's who we are, none of us are perfect. There are the few who have done more than just sin are in jail because of it. Even those people can be saved, I have friends who go by the Bible and the laws of God too seriously, which isn't a bad thing. But don't let yourself get caught up in what's a sin or not. Esp if you have to think about it... you know what's morally wrong already. Steer away from that and you're good.

Anime could never be evil. No matter how much fucked-up shit they put into it, there is no conceivable way it can ever be considered evil.

I personally think Catholics are worst. Mostly because the schools that my friend went to, the nuns were so strict about everything supposedly. My family is Christian and they watch anime lol.

True, some might not be good for children, but not all of them.

Another thing is outside Japan specially in "western" countries, cartoons are traditionally viewed as shows for kids, while in Japan its also treated as an alternative to live action shows.
This explains why they have anime targeted at older viewers which may contain adult situations, sex and violence.

People not familiar with anime tend to bunch up all anime (for kids and adults) together with western cartoons which are mostly targeted at kids, this is where the problem begins.

This is when you break out your Miyazaki DVD collection and start educating those who are ignorant about anime.

Oh what pretentious nonsense.
Finger pointers. The people who will tell you not to let your children read the newspapers. Don't watch this. Shelter that.
And the end result is an unknowing disconnected from the world idealist that wants to commit suicide at the first dose of reality.

I know exactly what you're talking about... I deal with this a whole bunch.

Yes it's mostly Christians, and to most of those same Christians not only is ANIME evil but:

Harry Potter (witchcraft)
Pokemon (it's anime i know but they tend to pick on it a lot :because pokemon are "monsters")
Videogames (time consuming, violent, and "useless")
The Golden Compass (the writer is an Atheist)
Barack Obama (democrat)
Anybody from any religion other than Christianity, really.
Metal music
Magic (and any story, book or game that has it)


I like all of these things. According to them, I'm going to hell. ("I'm on the HIIIIIIGH WAAAAYYYY TO HELL!!!")

But ummm don't get me wrong, not ALL Christians think like this

Saying, "Christians think everything is evil" is like saying "Black people liked fried chicken". Really now guys? I am sure there is some Bible thumpin' southern fire and brimstone pastor condemning "those chinese porn cartoons!", but to say Christians are narrow-minded anime haters is, in and of itself, narrow-minded.

Don't let the few typify the many, and take it from a Christian that anime is certainly not evil.
