Japanese Jesus died for your sins desu~

B-b-baka, i-it's not like I want you to be saved or anything!


You have won this thread.


Good Evening Sir has Jesus Senpai noticed you? The only way to heaven is if Jesus Senpai notices you.


Edit:
Also in regards to Op's question. I don't see why not. He probably wouldn't approve of all anime, but I think he would approve of those that would line up with his teachings

I'm not sure Yeshua would approve of the frequent occult imagery, nor the graphic violence. As mentioned, ecchi is right out. I would think the greatest of the wise masters of old would want an anime that uplifts people morally and philosopically. Kino's Journey is the only thing coming to mind at the moment.

Haibane Renmei seems the closest in religion-type anime imo, not that i watched that many shows in the first place
(a good show btw, though maybe not available on CR)

I would say no... one reason would be because most of the anime I've seen are based off of other beliefs so that would make it an automatic no in my opinion. But, even if he was going to watch one I would think it would be one with ZERO nudity and fanservice.... I'm thinking back and nope can't think of any...

No, no, it's PERFECTLY in keeping with the SS-wannabe tabloid-bait headers, what makes you think it'd be any different?

Basically, if he was around during the Japanese-fear 90's, when every PTA group was trying to demonize all weird foreign anime as "ultraviolent hentai porn", who do you think would be out front calling them "hypocrites"?

Now, as to whether anime would love Him back, that gets into a few old nationalistic cultural grudges...

He probably wouldn't like this anime.

I think some things he would approve of like anime that raises one's spirit but others he wouldn't approve like Ecchi and as a man who believes in Jesus as my savior I must know the name of this Anime and it's listed in my profile that one of my favorite movies is Passion of the Christ and one of my interests is the word of God. I am taught that we are not to flaunt it but when the topic comes up speak about it and I say this time and time again a mistake people who call themselves Christians make is trying to force it on others kind of like that saying you can lead a horse to water but you can't make it drink the water. The word of God is like that it's up to you if take or leave it let him who have a ear hear.

Jesus was all about brotherhood



Loving one another



Defeating the wiles of evil



And accepting peace...




The messages are pretty consistent. He might not watch the ecchi but...


Well, supposedly, there is an anime in existence that features Jesus and Buddha as main characters...never personally watched it, but I hear it's hilarious.

Edit: It's called "Saint Young Men". It's a comedic slice of life, apparently, and Jesus and Buddha are living as roomates

It's an interesting question. And as a Christian who believes Christ was resurrected (and therefore is still alive), this is definitely still relevant.

Would Jesus be an anime fan? The answer is, as others I feel have said, maybe. I think like any entertainment medium, there are things Jesus would be able to participate in and enjoy and there are things which He would not.

That said - knowing Jesus of the Bible there are two things to note: 1) If He's back now as He acting as He did in Biblical times, He'd probably spend way more time as an itinerant preacher sharing the Gospel than sitting around enjoying entertainment; 2) if He's coming back like He does in Revelation, then it's the end and with the actions which occur in Revelation, who knows if He'll have time to watch anime
