Post Reply What Anime Do Atheist Watch?
Posted 10/5/15
I also have a link to what an anime fan of Pakistan watches. If you're asking me what type of person he is, he truly believes in Sharia Law and thinks if proven guilty Homosexuals should be put to death.

You have to be a certain religion to watch what you want now?

Agreed, although to be fair, Atheism has no collective or main beliefs inherent to its followers and denominations :/

Religion and anime don't intersect at all, really. I initially assumed the OP was that wingopanda kook lol

Also, I forgot to mention. When crunchyroll no longer has the license for the show, it gets removed from all areas of the site, including your queue. So it's not a reliable list if you plan on telling people what you have seen.

For example, I had watched the second and third season of hellgirl and gosick (also a few others but I don't remember which were taken off), and they were suddenly removed from my queue at one point. Which is the reason why I created a MAL account.

And because people in Pakistan act old-fashioned, RELIGION IS EVIL AND A MASS DELUSION CREATING ATROCITIES THROUGHOUT WORLD HISTORY! AND THEY HATE GAYS, TOO!
(They also have festivals where they burn straw men. )

An interesting paradox would be whether athies watch Spice & Wolf, which has a Shinto god as the main character, but takes the Japanese view that Judeo/Christian religions are an evil Western fascist invasion destroying nice, peaceful, traditional thousand-year-old Eastern culture.
Paranoia and bigotry love company.

Nah, Wingnut's off the religion shtick now that the Mods are watching, now he's putting on his "Nutty Extreme Right" Halloween costume, and going around doing goofy fake posts about how Donald Trump will save the country (ba-dum-ching!).
Has he found his way to the Gun Rights thread by now, or has it not been ten seconds yet?

Apparently he has a 77% rating with me too. Quite scary. And I thought people like him didn't watch anime.

Except that they all to a man staunchly refuse to believe that Koko the gorilla is really using sign-language, and the trainer is just another happy deluded sheep optimistically fooling herself, because animals are mindless beasts just like humans...

Seriously, what IS the bugaboo preoccupation with that?? Even the "All Catholic priests everywhere are pedophiles; see, told ya so" thing only accounts for 80% of collective athie beliefs, but we're talking about 100 across the board.

I'm just going to assume you are trolling, but the kind of Anime Atheists usually watch is Anime.

I would have thought it would have been religious folk that would have more of a problem watching anime than any atheist. You have ecchi which is 'immoral', you have magic, there are often themes that mock religions, lolicon, sci-fi themes, aliens, genetic meddling, and a whole host of other things that would make it hard to stomach for those with a faith.

The question shouldn't be 'What anime do atheists watch?' and should be instead be 'Which anime can theists actually watch?'.

To the point of the OP - no idea, but I'd assume because atheists like all people are various in their opinions, tastes, and likes - it could be anything.

As someone who is deeply religious (Evangelical Christian), I can answer this question if asked. My partial answer - I avoid excessive anime with ecchi, hentai, and incest themes. Knowing that the people creating the anime are coming from a different cultural viewpoint than me, I view it differently than I would something coming from a Christian perspective. I don't necessarily avoid anime with magic, aliens, or even that which mocks my faith. I find different cultures interesting and how they address such items interesting as well. And, frankly, if a person is unable or unwilling to listen to critical assessments of what they believe without a knee jerk "This is the worst" then they're pretty weak in their faith. For example of an anime/manga Series - I love Blue Exorcist and am currently deep into the manga (vol 13), despite it's wildly inaccurate and strange interpretation of the Catholic Church and Christianity/the Christian faith as a whole. Example behind the spoiler:


That said, my faith is a central part of who I actually am - so it's the main lens through which I view anything (movies, music, anime). So yea, it will help guide what I watch and how I watch it as, frankly, I'm looking to see how what I'm watching correlates to what I believe. Is it antithetical to what I believe? Is it irrelevant to what I believe? Does it portray truths which are part of my faith in a way I hadn't thought of before? I've encountered all three of these things in anime.

There is a thriving community of Christians who watch anime. We're real...honestly!
