"Going into excruciating detail about some FICTIONAL cartoon characters as if they were real?"
Ahem . . .

"...One could not perceivably "christianise" something that is inherently evil.
I honestly wouldn't hold my breath on that one, if I were you. History is replete with examples of how Christianity (along with every other monotheistic religion)has been used to legitimize various actions against fellow human beings that can easily be construed as "evil".
Think the Spanish Inquisition, for instance, or maybe the Salem Witch Trials. Those are actually fairly minor examples, off the top of my head.
Just a word to the wise, though. *shrugs*
The rest of your post is an almost classical example of syncretism: the attempt to reconcile disparate or contrary beliefs, often while melding practices of various schools of thought.
Or, in the vernacular: "Maximum Fail".

Not religious but I agree, anime is for fags

You know, most of what he's talking about I've mostly seen in Hentai...one wonders what anime HE is watching.
Going into excruciating detail about some FICTIONAL cartoon characters as if they were real?
Your hypocrisy aside, I myself like analyzing characters I'm really fond of. If you have your viewers doing this, it's a sign you're succeeding somewhere. I'm not sure who said this, but it's great advice for writers: "Make a person, not a character."
...and, technically speaking, ALL anime/manga is of the same roots.
Is this guy aware that the "Godfather of Anime", Osamu Tezuka, considered Walt Disney a large influence?
Anime is MAINLY for adults, evidenced by the storylines.
Ever seen a Studio Ghibli film? Many of their films are child friendly.
Most of the more "adult" stuff is shown late at night or, in hentai's case, on DVD. Japan also has a belief that anime is for children, believe it or not.
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.
Superbook would like a word with you.

"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."
- Considering Christianity's roots are the mythological and ritual traditions of pagan mystery cults I find this comment particularly hilarious.

Hey, it's a moron who doesn't know the difference between 'medium' and 'genre'.
He may as well say 'the genre of movies is bad, because porn movies are from the same source arglebargle'.

"Is this guy aware that the "Godfather of Anime", Osamu Tezuka, considered Walt Disney a large influence?"
Osamu? That sounds a bit too much like Osama. or even worse...Obama.
Proof that Obama is the antichrist and anime is his tool of destruction to bring down America!!!!!!!!!!!

You know, I'd be pretty freaked out by Evangelion if I were a hardcore Christian.

Heh. Most brutal? Don't make me laugh. I highly you ever read Hellsing or Beerserk (Among others). Your head would have exploded.
EDIT: Heh, Beerserk >.> I meant Berserk, not some dude angry because they don't more booze.

"anime/manga is directly associated with the anime/manga that portrays girls AND women as throwaway toys, only good for sex and abuse?"

Ergo you, Toddy-boy = Hibiki Tokai (above, r). Q.E. and D.
Never mind blasting an argument out of the space-time continuum, yours has returned - on the fold-drive section of the Event Horizon - back to the Chaos Dimension, to be hideously raped & mutilated for all eternity. Liberate tutame ex inferis.
*- Not for nothing is "Vandread" one of my all-time faves.
**- I can highly recommend this, as the perfect anti-"Naruto"; it's the anime equivalent of "Fawlty Towers" - 12 episodes of pure comedic perfection. Two words: Norio Wakamoto.
"Wait, wasn't Superbook basically Christian anime?"
Decades ago, Pat Robertson - via showing "Superbook" on his Christian TV channel - effectively pioneered anime on US TV, popularising the genre there (even before the influence of the likes of Fred Patten & Carl Macek). America is the biggest consumer market for manga/anime outside Japan. Yes, that's right Toddy-boy. A Christian is directly responsible for Yuri/Yaoi/Ecchi/Hentai in the US.
Enjoy your paradox.
You need some tea & cake. Relax. ~_^

Stop the presses! A fundie actually said something that I agree with!

ALL I SEE IS CAPITAL WORDS!!
9/13/2011 2:49:23 PM
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?
Nope, much to my amusement.
9/13/2011 3:18:59 PM
*slow clap* Bravo, Anon-e-moose! Bravo! I can only imagine how you would blow stuff like this out of the water in PERSON.
As for you, Todd, I may not like everything in the anime/manga genre (Something lighthearted/comedic is indeed my boat) but you don't see me badmouthing it like it's the stupidest thing ever created in the history of human art. Ya don't like anime? DON'T WATCH IT. Don't make SUCH A FLYING FUCKING DEAL about it! We clear?
Who am I kidding. He's gonna be back here, I can sense it.

"Who am I kidding. He's gonna be back here, I can sense it."
Stop it, you're turning me on. His tears of impotent rage as I expose his own more than infinite FAIL in person will be ambrosia & nectar to me.

And as for your post, (*Blushy-blushy
*) You're too kind. Those expecting me to explode cranially, a la "Scanners", rest assured, I channel my energies into destroying arguments. Which reminds me...:
"Not religious but I agree, anime is for fags"
Never smoked in my life thanks, but I agree, pork meatballs in onion gravy would make for a tasty, nourishing, traditional & wholesome
meal whilst watching anime.
Will you be saying 'I love the smell of annihilated arguments - and Americentric (therefore failing) slang terms - in the morning. Smells like... victory.', or shall I? Oh, and you clearly spend too much time on 4chan's /a/ for your own good.
...just saying. ~_^
Continuing on the annihilation theme, as for what Toddy-boy says here:
"Take it from someone who KNOWS about this topic"
Which is Why I'd be glad
if he dared show his face round here. I'm suuuuure
he'd be able to identify the anime series these characters appear in:
I'm already savouring the merest whiff of destroyed arguments in the air. And it has notes of... Superiority.
...oh, and as for:
"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."
Toddy-boy has clearly never heard of the likes of "Azumanga Daioh", "K-ON!", "Hidamari Sketch" and "A-Channel". Still smelling those aromas of annihilated arguments in the air, pal.
"hence the troubling trend of little kids acting like they are gods, superheroes, wizards, and animals."
Almost from the start, has there been characters in anime who are
God(desse)s - Belldandy, Urd, Skuld & co. in "Ah! My Goddess". And Urd is the result of God fucking the Leader of Hell, Hild, no less.
; superheroes - Joey Jones and his eponymous robot companion in "Heroman"*. Created by Stan Lee, no less.

As for 'Animals', Google the word 'Catgirl', Toddy-boy. And have an aneurysm in the process. Three words: "Tokyo Mew Mew".

@ J. James:
Plus the horrific violence, the diapers (in the manga), and all of that. Not that I judge Elfen Lied based on that - only seen a little of it and thought it was alright.

You are a moron, anime/manga is wonderful and the people who create these wonderful animes/mangas have more of a life than you ever will.

Just been reading the site this quote's linked to, and it makes me wonder - as one of the anime series condemned by such being "Pokemon" - if the webmaster is a Slowpoke him/herself? When was the last time this site was updated?! Or mayhaps it's better if he/she is, and hasn't kept abreast of anime post-2000 (I mean - "Sailor Moon", "Dragonball Z"?! Their living under a stone levels are OVER 9000! XP )
For a start, one of the underlying motifs in "Kiddy Grade" (2002): immortality. As an 'ability'-user (C, then later G-class) in the GOTT, Eclair is never allowed to die, but is reborn in new bodies (many times in the past, re. flashbacks to her former lives; most of which were bloody & brutal, used by her Nouvlesse/GU masters for their own nefarious ends; thus Alv turning against the Nouvlesse). The concept of eternal life without 'Spiritual salvation'; no latest series of "Torchwood" required.
Then more recently, "The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya" (2006). In which a high school girl - without even realising it - is God.
Frankly, Toddy-boy, 'anime/manga that portrays girls AND women as throwaway toys, only good for sex and abuse' is the least of your problems. Three words: "Neon Genesis Evangelion".

Wow, if you hate anime and manga so much, then DON'T WATCH OR READ IT. It's that simple. And it's hard to say something everyone else hasn't when there's been 124 comments, but after reading the second sentence my irony meter went kaboom.
Anon-e-moose, your long posts with all the pictures slow down my computer, but it's worth it because they always make me lol.
