This is a mystery that has puzzled me more than anything elss God has placed before me. Sure I can agree that one reason may be the genres of Hentai (Porno shows) and Ecchi (extreemly risque situations and reviling clotiong), but if this is your only reason, then you may as well kill off cartoons in general as american cartoons have these kind of genres to.
My main argument to those I know that are Anti-Anime is this “Anime isn’t a genre, it is an art style” (my most basic argument) and this “Hentai and Ecchi are just a 3 inch tip of a thousand foot ice burg”.
I have even pointed out that some of their kids favourite shows (ie. Sonic the Hedgehog, Kirby, Hello Kitty, these are just to name afew) are in fact 100% Japanese Anime. But they either refuse to belive me, or make up some excuses.
I feel as though Anime needs an apologetics course of its own soon. I have read to many articals by Christians that are anti-anime, and seen to many people that are anti-anime. It is just crazy how a cartoon style can be hated this much.
Reply with your thoughts, and help me understand why some christians think this way so that I can better explain to them why anime is not the “creation of Satan” as they so famously say all the time.
