So there was this facebook page that said anime was satanic and blah blah blah and I noticed that there is a lot of people and Christians that feel that way.
It made me start thinking. I really don't care either way if it is or isn't because I love anime but there are quite a few that features the demon lord in a positive fashion like Demon King Daimon, Maoyu, High School DXD and a bunch of others. Then there are the ones that show Christians in a negative fashion like in Hellsing.
What do you guys think do you think anime is satanic? Is it just certain anime? If it is certain anime do you stay away from those or does it not matter to you? What are your general thoughts on the subject?

best question ever.

I personally think it's absurd, I'm christian myself and I know that sometimes Christianity goes overboard with it's imposed logic.

The Facebook page you saw was most likely from one of the occult sects of Christianity. Because the modern Christians are not as severe when judging others.

It's anime there is no special meaning behind it, entertainment purposes only.

god/religion is man made therefore anime can not be satanic because it doesn't exist.

isn't anime man made too? I was just saying that the folklore behind the characters are also meant to be bad too.
In Demon King Daimao the demon lord was supposed to be a really bad guy and a lot of people didn't like him for it but there were a lot of people in support of him and then God was a tree that wanted a girl dead.
I think most of it doesn't make a whole lot of sense but I was just curious what you guys were thinking of it. Very interesting comments so far though.

Anime is about as satanic as peach cobbler... which is to say that it's not (obviously).

Anyone who tries to tell you that its satanic has lost touch with reality and can't tell fantasy from reality. It sounds like something those Westboro nutjobs would put up.

It's just a mob of obnoxious bible thumpers who know little and understand far less about what they're attacking. Although in the case of Demon King Daimao and Highschool DxD they do seem to be almost purposely offensive to religious people, while entirely glossing over the subject matter by daubing the demons/devils with very humanist character traits.

Maoyu, I've not seen enough to really be able to determine whether that could be considered 'satanic' or not, but I'm thinking no.

As for Hellsing, love it though I do... It tends to paint a pretty dark picture of absolutely every aspect of society, one in which nobody isn't bad so much as being slightly less bad than others.

Ultimately, no. I do not believe that anime is satanic. And though there might be some anime series out there that are, I've either never noticed or just failed to care; unless you count Bible Black. ¬_¬
