Quote# 83711

I have read through the comments posted on crossroad.to, concerning anime/manga. I have to say this about most of the readers comments DEFENDING anime/manga: Do you (anime/manga fans) not realize that you are replacing life with this anime/manga hogwash? Going into excruciating detail about some FICTIONAL cartoon characters as if they were real? Don't forget, that anime/manga is directly associated with the anime/manga that portrays girls AND women as throwaway toys, only good for sex and abuse? I have seen some of the most brutal of the anime in years past, and, technically speaking, ALL anime/manga is of the same roots. You can't have one genre of anime, without realizing the extent and brutality of the others.

Anime is MAINLY for adults, evidenced by the storylines. Some anime is just plain BORING. Some is DISGUSTING. ALL of it is like watching soap operas: The gullible and reality-denying individual treating fictional characters as REAL, hence the troubling trend of little kids acting like they are gods, superheroes, wizards, and animals. Even if there WERE such a thing as CHRISTIAN anime, the roots would STILL be there. One could not perceivably "christianise" something that is inherently evil.

No matter how many of you DEFEND anime/manga, you NEED to realize that this genre of entertainment is nothing short of witchcraft, REGARDLESS of the messages/storylines presented. Anime, like other ungodly trappings in life, has been designed to rip you from the real world (God's creation), and stuff you into a state of mind that neither pleases God, nor will ever draw you closer to Him. Take it from someone who KNOWS about this topic. When you begin to blur the lines between good and evil (whether it's a little or a lot), you push yourself farther and farther into the chasm of depravity and insanity. Anime/manga is a product that is best flushed back into the cesspool from which it came.

Excuse me??? Nobody I know treats anime chars as real...
unlike certain cultists who treat the chars of bronze age mythology as real.

There is so much fail and stupid here I don't even know where to begin. I guess I'll start by pointing out that anime and manga fans, just like fans of all fiction, know the difference between fiction and reality, and talk about characters as if they were real (itself a questionable assumption) just for fun, with the full knowledge that such characters do not exist in the real world. If you're only going after anime fans, Todd, then you are being a major hypocrite. Either that, or you have all the subtlety of a sack of bricks.

Secondly, there is some major ignorance about this medium. Though I am amazed that Todd H. has managed to avoid the so-called "Animation Age Ghetto" (and I must give him some credit for that) he fails totally and utterly when he claims that all anime is filled with nothing but violence, objectification of women, and porn. (But now we know just what kind of shows he is watching...) Japan is far behind the West when it comes to gender equality, and this is a bad thing, but that doesn't mean that Japanese people and their media have no respect for women.

As for it being witchcraft, that took this screed from "ordinary" fundie to batshit super-insane fundie. Not even the most diehard otakus think that any fantastic stuff shown in anime actually works. It has nothing to do with the occult. Do fundies really seriously conflate everything they don't like?! Because this is the most pathetic attempt I've seen to link anything to witchcraft.

And as an aside, I'd love to read what Anon-e-moose has to say to this guy.

How is that different from the Bible?

Hm...this is something.

One of the most notable things I read into it is "imagination is bad!" Yeah, I guess learning how to tell the difference between wheat's pretend and what's real could be a problem for fundies.

Someone doesn't like Hentai. How very sad. To be so uptight about animation that one squeezes a diamond out of their ass for God.

the troubling trend

0.o Look, Todd, just because you had no childhood and don't understand what fun is doesn't mean you have to try to ruin it for everyone else.

Also, if you're going to say that anime and manga are evil because the medium has been used for pornography? So has every medium.

Just saw another line I felt like pointing out:
I have seen some of the most brutal of the anime in years past . . .

Basically: I watch hentai, guys! But I don't think other people should.

Some of the anime's I've watched have some of the strongest female characters I've ever seen. and oh the irony.

Indeed. As long as we're bringing up anime tropes here, this diatribe seems like an example of All Anime Is Naughty Tentacles.

"And as an aside, I'd love to read what Anon-e-moose has to say to this guy."

Oh, believe you me, so do I. As soon as I read the OP's first sentence mentioning anime and manga, I got a huge grin and made a mental note to get some popcorn ready.

Wait! What? Fictional characters not real?
Oh! The horror!

Hang on just a sec...

Okay man, I hate anime too but it's not witchcraft, bro. As you so wisely pointed out, it's fiction.

Todd, just because you capslock certain words, doesn't add weight to your argument.

As for treating fictional characters as if they are real.. how's that bible thing going for you?

I'm not even going to...

"ALL anime/manga is of the same roots. You can't have one genre of anime, without realizing the extent and brutality of the others."
There are plenty of violent, sexist, hateful books, too. (Like... uh... the Bible...) does that mean we should abandon literature altogether? After all, Harry Potter, How to Kill a Mockingbird, and yes, even your own Bible... they are all printed words on a page.

"..the troubling trend of little kids acting like they are gods, superheroes, wizards, and animals."
It's called make-believe. Kids have been doing it since basically forever - certainly long before anime and manga were popular in the west.

I would smite you with a dragon slave but the blast from the irony meter breaking did more then enough damage.

Your Bible puts rape victims to death, in Joshua they are commanded to kill and rape unbelieving women. And some animes and mangas have female heroes.
