I don't really see why it should be considered satanic...at the end of the day, it's just entertainment, right?

As a Christian, I can confidently say that all things are permissible, but not all things are beneficial or edifying to the soul. I personally love anime, and when I see subliminal or symbolic messages or images in anime, I just recognize it for what it is, knowing that every successful thing in this fallen world must have some connection with Satanic influence in order so that it will win the popularity and fame contest. When Satan offered the riches of the world to Jesus under the condition that He bowed down and worshiped him - another way of saying "sell me Your soul" Jesus refused his offer and said. "Thou shalt not tempt the LORD thy God." Anyone who sells their soul to Satan is going to inherit the kingdoms of the world, but they will be cut off permanently from inheriting the Kingdom of God and Eternal Life with God.

I am the type of Christian that can watch anime and not take anything to heart. I may not agree with everything that is said in some animes, but I don't let them influence my mind so that I start forming my own way of life off Eastern concepts of spirituality. In most animes they believe in gods, spirits, demons, reincarnation (Rumiko Takahashi's Kyoukai No Rinnie manga for instance) but they lack one thing... having a knowledge of spiritual things, they deny the Power thereof. For I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ, for it is the Power of God unto Salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first, and also for the Greek (Gentile world.)

There has been one thing that has baffled my mind for so many years... how can people honestly not see God unless their heart was darkened. If only we knew what forces of darkness waged against us. Influencing with deceptive whispers in our inner persons to keep us blinded of the very things that evidence the existence of God. For His invisible attributes are clearly observed by what we see in the Creation of the Universe and the World. For the Heavens declare the Glory of God and the beauty of the creation on Earth declares His Handiwork. How can we honestly deny that the Innate Intelligence within us, cells, electrons, living organisms in and with the body, functioning intellectually in both movement, response, and impulse. Yet we do not think to ourselves that something higher is not controlling these inward functions? The rich man in the Gospel of Luke went to Hell according to Jesus' story. The only thing he regretted was that his unbelieving brothers were going to end up in the same place when they die apart from God. Abraham spoke, "If they will not hear Moses and the Prophets of the Old Testament nether will they be persuaded to listen to someone sent from the dead." The truth is, there is so much spent up hatred toward God within every individual that walks the planet that even though the Truth stands out to us and grabs our attention that darkness in us separates us and blocks us, blinds us even, from accepting it.

Let it be known that everything under the Sun that is accepted has no part in Christ. For Christ was rejected by the Will of His Father in Heaven. Anime does not target the sin nature within humankind therefore it is not a threat to Satan's kingdom or those who are both knowingly and unknowingly children of him. Satan is the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now works in the children of disobedience toward God. Jesus was hatred by the world, beginning with His own kinsmen according to the flesh because He testified against the evils of this world. Anime will not testify against the evils of this world. Therefore it will be loved by this world.

I am not writing this to condemn and judge. It is the Word of God that condemns and judges in righteousness and holiness. I lie not, my spirit bearing witness with the Holy Spirit, that it troubles me night and day that so many people are going to die in their sins, and will not take part in the First Resurrection of Life. Also I know the dilemma. There are many who have called out to God but experienced no sense of conversion to Him. That is because they are trying to connect with God by means of their own fantasies. For the wages of sin is death... but the "Gift of God" is Eternal Life THROUGH Christ Jesus the Lord, and again... "No one can come to Me (Jesus) unless my Father has given him access to Him."

I don't think ANY anime is. It's just stories and ideas that are animated, it doesn't mean anything. Is it possible? Of course it is, but it's very unlikely.

Well, I'm not really a 'Christian', but I was kinda raised as one, but in a broader sense, everything has 'evil' in it, so when it comes down to it they just don't like it and want mindless Christians to back them up

If any anime is Satanic, it's gotta be Sword Art Online. I mean, have you seen the extreme fanboys/haters?

Exactly. I was sort-of raised Christian, and went to a Christian school for 5 years. I almost felt brainwashed because they hammered things into me, like telling me homosexuality was wrong. I'm glad I started thinking for myself for what was right and wrong. If I stayed that way, I may have just blindly believed anything other Christians told me to believe.

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?


Being a Christian myself, and an Anime fan, I find these questions ridiculously hilarious. Just like anything it depends on the presentation.

For example in High School DxD, Irina, Xenovia and Asia are depicted as devout Christians even though Xenovia and Asia both became devils. They aren't treated as stupid or misguided and the characters are treated with respect. Like all Religious organizations there are those who have lost their way

Mayou is interesting in that it shows that no matter who wins, everyone loses, but again as with High School DxD the main Religious character (Knight) is shown with respect to her beliefs, and that their are evil people who pervert the teachings to follow their own agenda.

Even in shows with a clear Anti-Religion message (Scrapped Princess) the presentation shows that their are good people within that religion just most are corrupt.

So like I said it's all in the presentation.

and like AnimeCrazy said, at the end of the day it's all entertainment.

i think religion as tools created by humans. so for me there is no question of anime being satanic or not. humans by their action become godly or satanic.

Depends on the anime and it's theme. Anime is just like any other medium. It comes in many forms. It's like asking "Are books Satanic?", makes no sense.


You should start that thread. Why? Hopefully if enough people trying to turn it into something it is not, maybe it'll remind the rest of us that while there are many debates worth having, not all venues are suitable for such things. I'll cut it short there, lest I prove even more of a hypocrite.

My sister asked me the same question since she has 5 year olds and the little old ladies at her church were running around accusing everything of being satanic. I told her that those ladies had WAY too much time on their hands for one thing. I also pointed out that either Jesus dealt with satan once and for all like he said he did, or he didn't. I tend to trust that he did what he said he came to do rather than going around saying he started something but didn't finish it. if its finished, why worry about something he finished and took care of? if he didn't finish it, then you have much bigger problems than if your kid watches pokemon or not.
