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.

This just kept getting stupider and stupider as it went.

So if an anime were made that was about the soldiers of God finally destroying Satan once and for all and ushering in an era of peace, you claim it would STILL be the Devil's Work?

It kinda looks like Todd almost had a good idea there. While the depiction of women in manga/anime is nothing short of sexual objectification....everything else Todd says it just. terrible.
(Although, as an anime/manga nerd, there are some series that truly are so terrible they need to return from whence they came(but my reasons are nowhere close to Todd's) I'M LOOKING AT YOU, K-ON.)

[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? ]

The Great Mouse Detective has a stripper in it. Bambi battles another buck to the death for a female.

[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.]

In The Lion King, Mufasa is thrown off a cliff and trampled to death. The villian is also eaten alive. In The Hunchback of Notre Dam Frolo falls off the top of the church to his death. He also cracks a woman's head open in the start of the movie. In the Beatuy and The Beast Gaston is thrown off the castle and falls to his death. In All Dogs Go to Heaven Charlie has a nightmare where he is sent to hell and is tortured by demons. This movie also features animals smoking, drinking, and gambling.

Lets go back before anime, in Bambi, the title character fights another buck to the death for a female. In Snow White the witch falls off a cliff and is crushed by a boulder. So no, it's not only anime that is violent.

part 2:

[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.]

Thats interesting. Disney movies had the same effect on me. I used to pretend that I was a mermaid, a genie, a lion, etc... It's called pretend and nearly every child does it, especally before the age of PSP and Xbox.

[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.]

You try to "christianise" every horrible war, disease, and murder in the bible. Shit, one of your first stories is about a guy beating his brother to death.

[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.]

Yes, you know a lot about insanity, but nothing about anime.

[Anime/manga is a product that is best flushed back into the cesspool from which it came.]

Anime is losely based after Walt Disney's early animations. Don't believe me? Look it up?

Guess this bozo never took a Shakespeare class in college and had to write papers analyzing Hamlet or Brutus or Lear or Iago or Lady Macbeth or...oh never mind.

There is a difference between treating or writing about a character as if they were real with the understanding that they are only fictional, and being unable to tell the difference between fiction and reality.

Now who do I know that usually can't differentiate between fiction and reality? Don't tell me! It's on the tip of my tongue. Oh yeah, FUNDIES!!

Dude, if you're not into eroguro, don't look at eroguro. If you're not into anthro don't look at anthro, and if you're not into anime don't look at anime. But leave the people that are alone.

Though, to be fair, some of the eroguro people do worry me once in a while. And there is something I find deeply unsettling about many chibi style characters. Not sure exactly what. But at least I don't take out my distaste for a certain genre or art style on the /entire fandom/. Heck I don't even bother the fans of those genres about it.

Well, I can't think of one time the Bible praises imagination so I guess that's why the fundies think it's evil. Now I think of it God never says a good word about anyone's intelligence either.

What's wrong with Elfen Li-- OHHHH right. The incest. Yeah. The incest. Almost forgot about that.

Interesting that you think even the most innocuous anime is terrible and it should be shunned in favour of the Bible. Parts of the Bible are so disturbing that even the medium of Lego cannot detract from its staggering brutality and callous disregard for humanity as a whole and individuals (often women) in particular. The only difference between the Bible and some of the more brutal anime is that while virtually everyone can tell that anime is fiction and therefore for entertainment purposes only, billions of people are entirely deluded and fully believe in the Bible.

The slippery slope that takes us further into the chasm of depravity and insanity might not be an entirely fallacious one: we see fundies whizzing down it on these boards every day. The point to note is that the slope exists only when fiction becomes an accepted reality. Anime and Manga do not fulfil that criterion. Christianity on the other hand...

"Take it from someone who KNOWS about this topic."

Yeah, they always KNOW about anime, manga, atheism, vampirism, pagan religions, heavy metal music, and Dungeons and Dragons, don't they?

BTW, is there any form of entertainment that isn't "witchcraft", designed to turn one's mind away from The Lawd? To (mis)quote a line from The Amazing Adventures of Cavalier and Clay, "The only people opposed to escapism are jailers."

I guess he got traumatized from watching Elfen Lied or Berserk or something.

It's easy to understand why fundies have always been so outraged against any work of fiction that contradicts their holy book even slightly, because the nature of religious fundamentalist is an inability to distinguish between reality and fantasy, and they naturally assume other people are the same way.

If Todd H. is so fearful of anime/manga and their influence on children, he should probably watch Neon Genesis Evangelion, the most Christian work of fiction ever created next to the bible itself. It's backstory has a global flood, contains lots of gratuitous violence and a group of nutcases that fuck over the entire planet by following the commands of some ancient texts, the cast are the most screwed up people imaginable, angels actually look like angels instead of the fluffy-winged pansies Medieval European painters invented, and anyone claiming to understand the ending is either lying or just as crazy as the person who wrote it. Fundies would love it.

Also, some of the most powerful female characters I've ever encountered have been in an anime or a manga, and even if they're sexualised they STILL managed to be complex and interesting (as Revy and Yoko can attest). Indeed, despite Japan's horrible sexism, in general its fiction is more fair to women than that produced by other nations.

If you cannot distinguish the difference between reality and fantasy (PROTIP: Religion is fantasy touted as reality) then just die or have yourself committed to an asylum.
