Anime fan since Akira, Serial Experiments Lain, Voltron, Robotech. Just kinda grew up with it.
Lots of friends watch Anime, and there's a club of anime fans at work.

I grew up believing in God, but after I reached adulthood the idea seemed quaint and not very relevant to my daily life. I began practicing Nichiren Buddhism eight years ago, which does not include the concept of a sentient all powerful being. I am a person of faith, but my faith is not in something outside of myself, but rather the universal buddha nature that I believe all people share.

In my social circles outside of family, people that have a devout belief in God are rare, and mostly outnumbered by the people who like ( or who have at least occasionally watched ) anime.

I love when atheists treat it like a religion, they try to find fellow atheists and try to recruit people to their belief...KINDA..like.....RELIGIONS

That's more to do with the homo sapien natural tendency to create & network with groups that share some commonality. Wee back in ancient times it helped to ensure survival.

I am an Atheist have been since i was around 14 or so but always had doubts when growing up.
I am 21 Native American.
I live in South East Oklahoma, USA
My dad and I watched Dragon Ball Z when i was around 5 that is what got me started in anime. I continued with the likes of Yu Yu Hakusho, Inyuyash, and Cowboy Bebop at around age 10.
Most of the friends I have love anime just as much as i do.

They're not lost souls. Everyone is an atheist at some point in their lives.

The Bible says that we have a right to question and search for the truth. Atheism is simply not believing in God but doesn't mean they won't become believers later on.

Lost Souls are those who know there is a God but decide to worship satan, or those who know there is a God but do everything that angers God, like a priest raping a child, ISIS or a believer who looks down on others and thinks he/she is righteous or those who know God exist but they still refuse to worship him.

Those who believe in God have a greater responsibility than those who don't.

Romans 1:21-22 “because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. Professing to be wise, they became fools.”

Luke 12:48 “But the one who did not know, and did what deserved a beating, will receive a light beating. Everyone to whom much was given, of him much will be required, and from him to whom they entrusted much, they will demand the more.”

Err...I'm not atheist, btw.

Never really like the word Atheist to describe it and usually avoid it at all cost.

When I do think about it, I guess I have been a little bit agnostic here and there in the past but... atheist? yep... that's me.
