There are more than a few shows that stupid Christians would probably classify as satanic. Just let them spew outdated bible verses at you from their uneducated and biased perspective.

Religion is just something people made up on their own, and it gained a following. Bringing the will of God into politics or discussions regarding anime, ethnicity, and the like is asinine and pointless.

I do not mind religion, but I dislike people who rely on God as the basis for every pathetic aspect of their crappy lives. A reasonable person should be able to form their own opinion without the influence of that damn book. I have met plenty of people who have embraced and accepted God as their savior, but they recognize that some of the teachings are outdated and that we need to adapt to progress. I don't mind that. If that is your stance, more power to you. But when stupid people blindly accept the outdated messages in the bible (an interpreted text...) and revoke the changes in society they despise while accepting what benefits them, I lose my composure. It would be nice if these idiots would focus their efforts on issues that actually matter instead of wasting time debating and criticizing crap that is insignificant.

I happen to be Christian and I don't see anything wrong with anime. It's the same with any other form of media. There are people who claimed books, movies, tv, etc. was satanic. If they want to believe that, then it's fine. People who say these kinds of things are hard to persuade and would never move from their position.

There are anime out there that will portray Christianity in a negative light, and some that don't (I think Trigun is an example of this). Again, this is in every form of media since not everyone believes in the same thing.

Besides, for all we know, God could be the biggest anime fan in existence.

They really dont know what satanic is. If look at history, things shown as evil was just competing religions. The image of the devil is based on a pagan god.

EVERYTHING is satanic except for your own primary "Holy Book" and perhaps some of the text surrounding it. Everything else is EVIL(tm)

I think the problem is that people are scared to think and/or be ostracized from their friends and society....

a), because the evil one (pick a definition) is always out to get you, relaxing your guard just an INSTANT could cause permanent and instant problems / damnation. So anything that isn't just a cute little puppy must be vetted by your religious leaders or subordinates and even then you'd better hope that puppy isn't already possessed.

b) anything that looks bad/evil must be, because $deity is good and wouldn't try to trick you while ! $deity is ALWAYS trying to trick you and lead you astray.

c) people are weak and easily confused, so anything that hasn't passed religions mustard is suspect, and anything appearing bad IS LITERALLY bad. New things especially because they're not knows pure. Only the highly trained elite with the fortitude to withstand Evil(tm) can glance at or touch evil and non-holy things without being tempted and corrupted.


There was a big deal years ago with Catholic Church members and the movie The Da Vinci Code. Most of the people I heard were objecting to the movie because it could damage someone's faith.

Excuse me?? If a single movie is enough to make you break your religious convictions, you already don't have any.

Same with Harry Potter. "Ooooh, they use spells, that's not listed in my book as good so it's evil."

Give Me A Break. You'd better have Little Johnny (and even adult Julie) learn about opposing views within your framework unless they're always going to stay within their closed-eyes bubble world. If everything you see is always pure white, then you're going to have an impossible time when something else appears in front of you. Maybe that's the trick -- if you never notice it, it's just not there.

I'm currently talking to my cousin about this -- his father is a pastor and his son is just now starting to get into anime. And I'm warning him about this exact topic ("Is Anime Satanic?")

My response is: Not at all, but he's your son so you should keep an eye out watching over him -- just like you do with everything else. Ask him what he's reading, watching, listening to, and talking about, and talk about things when necessary. Guide him about the things you think are good and show and warn him over the things you think are not.

There was multiple studies done with kids finding a hidden (unloaded) gun while an adult was out of the room (but others watching via cameras.) The kids who's parents kept guns away from them and were positive the kids wouldn't touch it were shocked when the kids grabbed it and started playing. The kids who's parents had trained them about guns immediately went for an adult for help.

You train kids to mostly do the right thing and to ask questions if necessary. It's called ethics. I'm not sure we have it anymore; it's all instant gratification and me, mine. But then again I'm just an old fogie.



I suppose I'm getting way off topic here. NO, anime isn't Satanic, but I could see how some people could see it that way. Too bad for them.

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?


It depends on what view angle your coming from when asking such a questions. Some would say that anime is satanic and some would say that they aren't. Even if you look at movies and/or video games there're a lot of movies/games that are satanic in different ways, while there are other movies/games that aren't satanic at all.


There are video games such as Dark Souls, Demon Souls, Soul Sacrifice, Final Fantasy, Diablo and Dragon Age that can be arguably satanic for some people. But there's also games that aren't satanic and in fact that doesn't show any type of satanic visions inside them such as Battlefield, COD, Mirror's Edge etc.

The same applies for movie, there's a lot of movies that aren't satanic and a lot of movies that are satanic.

Here's a better question "What is satanic and what isn't satanic?". Because depending on whom you ask your going to get a different answer!

Given this forum's obession with dupes. Necro is going to happen. People are expected to look for a thread that matches the one they are thinking of starting and post to that thread instead of starting a Dupe.

So Dupes or Necro choose one.

Lately, I just think a certain someone has just been really bored with the lack of forum activity around 3AM EST.

So they go digging.

Because where else would we be able to disclose our unbiased and completely objective opinions on the nature of anime other than an anime site? While also having the bonus to flame and make blanket statements about Christians and all religions as a whole!
