It is, but depending on the medium it's not that bad.

The movie and OVAs follow the manga and are just as graphic. But the original 1984 Toei anime is pretty toned down compared to the manga. Peoples heads still explode but it is shown as a stylized black and white silhouette.

With, anime, sexualization or "fanservice" is fairly tame, so it's limited to stuff like pantyshots, cleavage or exposed legs. There's hentai anime with sex-scenes, but that's low-budget content with different distribuition, and a seperate thing. In real anime, kissing and handholding is as lewd as it gets. Stuff like Kaguya-sama and New Game are wholesome, man. Much better than the adult entertainment that's made by the West.

>nihilism

Now you've lost me completely. I've watched anime for a decade, and I've never encountered one in which the protagonist isn't a good person by Christian standards and, at the same time, is portrayed in a positive light. There's Death Note, which is a great show by the way, but the main character is obviously drunk on power.

Anyone here reading Tonikaku Cawaii? It's pretty wholesome and a great manga so far about a dedicated cute couple do cute couple things. It also has the best statement about love and marriage I have ever seen from a non-Christian (well, I don't know the state of Kenjiro's soul, but I'm being a bit too presumptuous due to Japan's current spiritual state).

Cute girls cutely surviving in an unforgiving land. Due to reasons, one of the girls is an expert on stuff like edible flora and fauna, shelter- and tool-building and trapmaking, so the manga's fairly educational. And the art's great.

Here are some more screencaps on the manga. For the current anime season, I'm watching Bokutachi wa Benkyou ga Dekinai, which is a show about a couple of students that are struggling with their interpersonal relationships and schoolwork, and Kenja no Mago, which is a very well-made fantasy isekai. Great shows, tbh.

People should be willing to watch content that is a little bit more challenging. For example, the main theme in Legend of the Galactic Heroes, which was mentioned earlier in this thread, is examining political systems and their respective strengths and weaknesses. The central conflict is between democracy and autocracy. This gets a nuanced treatment of the sort that's just plain beyond American storytelling.

In general the West seems to like to tie up all stories neatly with a little bow on top. Japan is willing to be more open and invite thinking from the viewer about the ending.

It was definitely Western and from tumblr. I've seen that picture earlier when it was first discovered and made fun of.

How could anyone confuse that abomination for actual anime girls? The styles are not remotely similar. Someone on tumblr was complaining about realism and body diversity. That person was very likely a tranny because the "improved" versions of the Love Live characters ended up looking like ugly aging men.

If you think the teasing won't end in marriage, you're very wrong.

>fanservice to the point of ecchi

There hasn't even been any kissing yet, but I get your point. The manga's plenty lewd, with legs and cleavage.

I'm watching the Fruits Basket remake this season and remembering why this series turned me into a fujo at age 12 and started questioning if the Christian faith I was raised with was really true when boys rabu between two bishies was so pure and kawaii, letting me down a parth of atheism and drgeneracy that I didn't crawl out of until I was in my 20s. Don't let your kids watch this crud fam.

Gyo is an anime movie I can't really recommend as Christian anime for being horror and gruesome horror at that. Even I don't really like it but rather find it well executed and interesting. You know, like those classics that people don't read for fun except in this case the problem isn't boredom.

The anime movie is based on a manga, but the anime changes and rearranges a lot of things. Only the anime is interesting from a Christian perspective.

One thing about the anime is that the monsters seem to act as moral agents in a way that's implied to be more than plot contrivance if you pay attention.

Gyo doesn't give much in the way of explanations for the events, but a viewer can piece out some things from the scattered clues. The entire story can be seen as an unusual treatment of Revelation 16 inflicted on a world where no one seems to make the religious connection and the people in Japan don't pay attention to what goes on outside of Japan.

I bring you Pretty Cure.

Did you know that magical girls can be a Christian allegory? It's about spiritual warfare. When the Cures transform they put on the Armor of God.

Speaking just about HeartCatch, the heart flowers are so obviously souls that I don't think it can be denied. Continuing from that allegorical detail, it becomes apparent that the Cures are fighting the forces of Hell.

There are also good, healthy messages all around.

Haibane Renmei is a truly excellent anime.

Seeing those characters with wings and halos gives the first impression that the anime is Christian… but it isn't really… except maybe it really is, even if questionably orthodox. Haibane Renmei is another one of those that leave important things for the viewer to figure out.

In general, Haibane Renmei is the sort of series that makes you laugh and cry with the characters and has no violence at all despite being made for adult audiences. Overall the show is hopeful and happy, which the sad parts help bring to a greater focus.

If you are interested in magical girls with the Christian theme of self-sacrifice, the final episode of Madoka was delayed to Good Friday because of earthquakes in a moment of divine providence.

I've seen Madoka. It is massively overrated. Consider this post an anti-recommendation.

Madoka is above all despite the cute visuals a grimdark series about young girls falling into despair and dying. It's like a worse Bokurano with magical girls instead of giant mechas. Bokurano was likely a major influence. Madoka likes to have a major plot twist in every episode, but once you look back at the plot, you notice that the successive twists made a pretzel of nonsense. It's pretentious nonsense too.

Deep down Madoka's worldview is very much incompatible with Christianity. The things that might be considered similarities are on closer look more like opposites. I'm currently approaching a hurry, so I'll let a deeper explanation lie.

The fight choreography in Madoka is really bad too. It mostly amounts to the participants doing their damage-dealing thing until someone dies.

Mami's theme was cool, though. I'm not gonna argue the fact that the anime is overrated, but it's not that bad. Heck, I'd say it's decent enough. Are there better options? Sure, but that on itself doesn't make it bad. The twists near the end are surprising enough to leave most watchers pleasantly surprised, which may be the reason why so many people have fond memories of it.

I personally (same anon, different computer) am tired of the grimdark trend and the deconstructions. I suppose Madoka isn't that bad because I managed to finish it, but it's the kind of anime that really doesn't bear thinking about it after the fact, such as the role of the magical girls in the world and the related physics.

Now that I think about it, one way to make the plot make sense when taken as a whole is to take the story as Christian so that QB is really the Devil and most of the surprise revelations are blatant lies that the show never bothers to correct. The suffering of the main characters is because of QB's subtle and complicated off-screen manipulations and illusions. The ending is 100% an illusion from QB that the show also never bothers to show as an illusion. Madoka sold her soul for nothing real and for no good reason, which QB will probably tell her some time after the ending credits of the final episode. That's still not good from a Christian perspective.

For a good magical girl series aimed at adults I recommend Nanoha (first two seasons/movies only). However there is nothing especially Christian about Nanoha except general themes like hope and redemption. Nanoha is a very idealistic show. Now that I think about it, Nanoha is pretty much the polar opposite of Madoka. Even the fight scenes in Nanoha are vastly superior.

Nanoha is really science fiction with sufficiently advanced technology, by the way, so there are no witchcraft themes that people may wish to avoid. So I suppose this post came out as surprisingly close to a Christian anime recommendation for Nanoha.

Are the demons and satanic stuff demonized and portrayed as evil villains that are fought against, or are they explicitly or implicitly glorified?

Real demons would look sophisticated and Christian-like to fool people, not your bat-wing'd, busty succubi or edge-lord cosplay-tier dudes that you see in anime and manga. See 2 Corinthians 11:13-15.

Reccing Spirited Away by the Rain Woman Youkai

It's very similar to that children's book, The Runaway Bunny about a mother rabbit steadfastly chasing after her wayward rabbit son. A lot of similarities between both mange and child's book and our identity as children of God. A lot of unintentional yet good metaphors that you can pick out . Censored the last page because of the weak among us.

New-Agers and satanists who contact demons say their experiences are either with "angels" of light or evil spirits depending on what they're more likely to believe and want to converse with.
