Christian anime thread Anonymous 09/09/2022 (Fri) 01:45:42 ID: a9ff60 No.17692
Talk about wholesome shows and cute waifus.
>>17692 Trigun <3
Good lucking trying to find good anime that isn't sexualized or has some satanic themes like magic in it.

>>17697 Friend, I don't think you know the difference between anime and hentai. Pic related is how "sexual" the average non-hentai anime (that's neither aimed at little kids) gets. And also, you must think Harry Potter is satanic too, right?
>>17699 Bro, you don't think this is lustful?
>>17703 Bro, you think this is lustful?

>>17699 Harry potter is satanic, just look at the types of people who still pay attention to it today. And that image you posted *is* lustful, just because jew-made american live action sitcoms do the same thing and nobody questions it doesn't make it any less of a sin. >>17707 >Bro, you think this is lustful? yeschad_jesus.jpg
>>17699 > you must think Harry Potter is satanic too, right? It is. They even use real witch spells
>>17707 It is. She's not even close to modestly dressed.
>>17710 /christian/ is satanic, just look at the types of people who still pay attention to it today.
>>17699 I know the the difference between hentai and anime, and i've watched Toradora and it has more sexualized moments >And also, you must think Harry Potter is satanic too, right? see webm.

What is /christian/'s take on non-non biyori? Is it also degenerate?
I think Ghost in the Shell might be the only Anime that has very little fanservice and is also good.

>>17697 >>17710 >>17711 >>17718 >6. Put effort into your posts. Low-quality threads and posts (including bait, off-topic, flaming, or nonsense/schizoposting) will be deleted. christianjanny, do something about those posts >>17729 Anything, including the most wholesome things, is "degenerate" if you have a dirty mind and can only find "sex" or whatever in it. The pic you posted is a good example - it's very cute and wholesome, but if you're a coombrain schizolord like at least 40% of this board, you'll find it to be "yuri loli hentai" or something.
>>17731 It's not nonsense or incoherent ramblings but it is kind of off topic (since it's related to media), he asked if harry potter is satanic of course i'm going to tell him that a medium based of practicing magic is satanic, this is a Christian board of course we're going to be telling a lot of people that certain things are satanic, it's part of the warning against sin.

Clannad... is really wholesome and beautiful... and I don't think it's possible to fully explain it and how it impacted me just in one post but... It's basically about a boy who had no motivations in life or anything (like me before watching it) but then he gets to know some girls and he learns about their life and he helps them in overcoming their problems, and he falls in love with one of them... and like... this anime literally changed me as a person... I was about 15 at the time, before watching Clannad I was an antinatalist depressed nihilist doomer with no emotions but after watching it I thought "hey maybe the world is not so bad and there are good things in life and there's still hopes and happiness... and it would be good to get a wife and children" and I became able to feel emotions and to cry and I learned what love actually is (before I used to think love is just "when you hug and kiss someone" or "when you don't call niggers by the nword that's love, etc" like a hippie) and it changed me in other similar ways... Like, if you know some kids (more like teenagers), especially if they're already into anime, recommend them this show... it's gonna teach very valuable things to them and give them good role models...
Learn proper grammar/sentence structure.
>>17731 Zoomers need to be taken away from electronic overstimulation for their own good.
>>17739 A similar story with me and tri-gun, it not only helped me appreciate things more but it also opened my eyes to many of the inconsistencies of my views. Such as valuing human life (anti abortion) but believing in killing people I don't like or invading other countries preemptively aswell as other things.
>>17730 There are others, like the world god only knows, which is very funny, amagami, kaguya's anime, especially the first two seasons, takagi's teasing anime, etc. You should try some of them. One of my favorite aspects of anime is that it has romance that caters to men, with girls that you'd like to marry. This stuff is really very different from western romance fiction.
>>17692 >>17699 >>17729 >>17739 >>17757 There has been a concentrated effort by a certain mudslime to shill anime/manga as "based and christpilled". To all anons browsing this thread do not be fooled by such sly tactics.
>>17758 Can you prove that? I think it's more just average weeboo anons forcing anime on Christianity.

Gonna recommend the pretty old but delightful show Alps no Shoujo Heidi. Touching story and characters, with from my point of view nothing indecent in the show. Given the origin of the book it's based on and the location of the show, it also has some Christian elements portrayed in it. So if you're into slow paced sweet shows, it's definitely recommended.
>>17771 Non-hentai anime still has softcore porn in it.
>>17773 Then stop watching soft core porn.
>>17773 Besides monogatari, name one.
>>17775 spyxfamily
>>17766 Christianity is a threat to the emperor's divine authority and japanese culture in general.
>>17774 >>17775 The point is that there is a lot of anime that is not outright porn, that nevertheless has stuff like gratuitous cleavage, panty shots, fan service, lewd/ecchi humor, etc.
>>17791 As long as stuff like that is not too over the top and doesn't make you lust, it most of the times wouldn't be too problematic - on the contrary, it would be kinda based since it emphasizes the beauty of one of the most beautiful of God's creations - the female body (and femininity in general)
>>17795 I would caution you to not be too overconfident, and not see how close you can get your hand to the flame without burning it. You may think that you can "handle it," but how do you know how such things are affecting you? As the scriptures say: The heart is deceitful above all things, And desperately wicked; Who can know it?
>>17795 just because God created the female body doesn't mean he wants you to lust after it watching Japanese cartoons, it's because he wants you to marry an actual woman.
>>17791 Yes, so stop watching soft core porn. Anime is a style of art, you choose what to watch.

>>17796 You must have severe problems if you don't know things as basic as how you're feeling (in this case, whether you're feeling lust or not). >>17797 I never said it's good to lust after women from anime, and also it's art, so maybe you're also gonna say that old paintings depicting femininity (e.g. pic 1) are also bad?? You want all women to look like pic 2!??...

The worst boon of image boards is their tendency towards wanton verbal abuse amongst members. It's a unique environment where one can can make an innoffensive post with the purpose of feeling good with friends and still be subject to swathes of hatred. It's this very fact that simultaneously draws in many angry individuals to unhealthily express themselves towards another and drives away the few content. Then our happiness has fled from the warpath of our rage. Surely there's a better way to live. Regardless, watch Mahou Shoujo/Puella Magi Madoka Magica if you haven't yet. It's an absolutely splendid show. I let it sit on my watch list for far too long but it was a phenomenal piece of media and I'm glad I was able to watch it with my girlfriend. I've been quite obsessed with it since then and while the third movie had an unfortunate conclusion I still love it and the series as a whole. Additionally, you must watch the show first it's significantly more detailed although the movies really flesh out the animation so well.
>>17805 >so maybe you're also gonna say that old paintings depicting femininity (e.g. pic 1) are also bad?? Any depiction of a nude woman can be sinful, but the solution isn't to completely cover women, it's for men to have control of their mind.
>>17805 >You must have severe problems if you don't know things as basic as how you're feeling (in this case, whether you're feeling lust or not). Jeremiah 17:9 is an observation about humanity in general. The point is that none of us are aware of the depths our depravity. Psalm 19:12 says: "Who can understand his errors? Cleanse me from secret faults." We sin more than we even know about. Look at some of the examples in this very thread. Look at the image in the OP post: >>17692 It's ostensibly supposed to be an example of a "pure wholesome Christian waifu." Yet it's literally crypto pin-up art. The "Christian knight waifu" has huge breasts that her tunic hugs the form of, and she has a short-skirt and thigh high combination that draws attention to her bare thighs. Or look at this post: >>17699 Once again, used as an example of something supposedly benign and yet the woman has a form hugging outfit that brings out her breasts and shows off her cleavage. On top of that she literally makes a lewd reference to wanting her breasts to get bigger. Literally examples of the concept of "Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil..."
>>17823 Yet God made garments for Adam and his wife to cover their shame after His discovery of their transgression, a shame which all humanity inherits, and set the precedent for a necessary modesty before Him. Human nature after the fall is to sin in its helplessness without the Lord; what God made is good, yes, but man delights in perverting it against its original purpose so long as he acts after his own purposes without being led of the Holy Spirit. The weight of sin not only bears upon the beholder, but if one should knowing encourage sin, the Lord says: >And whoever shall cause to stumble one of these of the little ones believing in Me, it is better for him that a heavy millstone should be hung around his neck, and he be sunk in the depth of the sea. >Woe to the world because of the causes of sin. For the stumbling blocks are necessary to come, but woe to the man by whom the offense comes! Matthew 18:6-7 So therefore, there is a duty of Christians to maintain an environment that encourages self-discipline and wholesomeness in faith.
>>17831 Is this imageboard not a public space? Do you write a message or paint a painting without meaning for it to be read or seen by yourself or others? Do you think it befits a Christian to be faultless in public and debauched in private? That art, as artists believe, should be for art's sake, is such a Christian notion to you? All a person's thoughts and actions interact to the edification of or the deterioration of their soul. I'm not speaking merely of art but of all human activity.
>>17831 >not what they do by themselves in their own time And no time is your own time for all your time is on God's watch. Luke 12:20-21 “All things are lawful,” but not all things are profitable; “All things are lawful,” but not all edify.  1 Corinthians 10:23
>>17834 >I try not to engage too much with such ideologies of intense regulation of others. And where did I put injunction on you to follow my word? Did I say to make laws to restrict freedom of expression? And how eager were you to pass judgement, and to mock, by making a ridiculous comparison to Wahhabist Islam, yet you speak as if you do not regulate others. You cite Matthew 7, but I was not the one who judged for each of my posts was framed as a word of advice to be considered at the discretion of the reader, and advice based on the gospel you casually dismiss as "words on parchment and self-righteousness." My message to you and to those who would sympathize with your position would be to heed your own preaching lest you be condemned by it, for I asked nothing but for the Christians of this board to examine themselves and to self-regulate as to not bring others into sin. I could have called you many things, but I opted not to for charity's sake, to not repay spite with spite; evidently you do not purpose to reciprocate.
>>17840 And if by some sophistry you attempt to cast vigilance in keeping the commandments of God as a wicked thing, I present to you Matthew 24:45-51: >Who then is the faithful and wise servant, whom the master has set over his household, to give to them the food in season? Blessed is that servant whom his master, having come, will find thus doing. Truly I say to you that he will set him over all of his possessing. >But if that evil servant should say in his heart, ‘My master delays,’ and should begin to beat his fellow servants, and to eat and to drink with those being drunkards, the master of that servant will come in a day in which he does not expect, and in an hour which he is unaware, and will cut him in pieces, and will appoint his place with the hypocrites, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
Anime is based as it's a trojan horse for dharmic/shinto philosophy veiled under the aesthetics of Christianity, it helps westerners and Christians deprogram their cult indoctrination.
>>17818 >>17827 >>17832 >>17833 >>17840 Ok we get it you get all lustful and start cooming and thinking about sex 24/7 just from looking at paintings and drawings, but that's your problem so leave this thread if you hate anime so much and don't watch anime and maybe go live in a moslem country or in a cabin in the woods since you won't see even an inch of female skin there. Incel faggot. >>17848 Falseflagging, Dharma isn't even Japanese it's pajeet, and you literally can't be a Shintoist if you weren't born Japanese
>>17859 >Dharma isn't even Japanese it's pajeet, actually Dharmic in this context refers to religions originating in India, Buddhism being one of them, and since that existed in Japan for a very long time, and even got syncretized with Shintoism in some ways, it's not unreasonable to say that the culture has some Dharmic influences at the very least.

In return, you bitterly revile us and slander us as "cooming incel faggots." At best you have an unhealthy attachment to anime that drives you to insult and slander your brothers in Christ; at worst, do you even have the Holy Spirit in you, if you are capable of saying such cruel and biting remarks in the defense of godless secular entertainment?

Not him, but the posts he quoted were gentle. >even the contents of your posts at face value implicate that you're cautioning against an entire form of media because you disapprove of it. All media is evil, it's made by evil people, world wide, the only difference is in the older days they had to hide their contemporary modern secular aspects subliminally, one example is they got John Wayne to dress like a homosexual. I've gone to other countries and their media has the same "in your face" symbolism as the US.
>>17873 >We try to gently caution you in Christian brotherly love about the more questionable aspects of anime and anime culture. No offense but we don't need you to do that. We all know what things to stay away from.
>>17875 Once again, a lack of self control is projected; yet pictures like these >>17692 >>17699 are considered wholesome or benign, which demonstrates a lack of discernment. And once again, you try to make the argument of "self-control is being able to look at scantily clad women without feeling lustful thoughts." Yet that is completely anathema to scripture. In fact, lust and sexual immorality is the one sin that God literally instructs us to actively run away from: "Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body." -1 Corinthians 6:18 "Flee also youthful lusts..." -2 Timothy 2:22a Self-control of lust, in a Christian context, is not training yourself to be able to look at a naked or scantily clad woman for hours on end without feeling thoughts of lust. It's having the humility to recognize your human weaknesses and limitations and submit to Christ's rules and commands over you in such things. Look at David: all it took for the man who wrote most of the book of Psalms, a man anointed by God and after His own heart, to commit one of the most flagrant and monstrously rebellious chain of sins, including murder and adultery, was to merely look upon a naked woman bathing. Do you really think you are that much better than David? Jesus in fact says we should be so fanatical about rooting out any possible sin and danger to our salvation, that we should be metaphorically be willing to rip out an eye or cut off a hand (Matthew 5:29-20.) Christ says those who are unwilling to deny themselves and go through suffering and sacrifice for the sake of God, are not worthy to be His disciples. (Luke 9:23; Matthew 16:24) Jesus even said that we should be prepared to hate even our own family and friends if they are stumbling blocks to salvation (Luke 14:26.) Yet you seem more offended and scandalized by the possibility of having to hate Japanese cartoons, than by having to reflect on your possible shortcomings in discernment, or the reviling response of those who wish to defend such an attachment. >>17880 Yet judging by the responses in this thread, that assertion is questionable, at best.
>>17883 >And once again, you try to make the argument of "self-control is being able to look at scantily clad women without feeling lustful thoughts." Yet that is completely anathema to scripture. Who is making that argument? Everyone here in support of anime has said that you should avoid the pornographic and degenerate content within the medium and not engage with it.

>>17859 >Falseflagging, Dharma isn't even Japanese it's pajeet, and you literally can't be a Shintoist if you weren't born Japanese Because of people like you, Christians have a reputation of being low iq. Dharma wasn't invented by the poos since india is a multiracial/multicultural shithole and the Buddha literally copy-pasted hindu metaphysics/philosophy unto his own. >>17890 You people are addicted to the imitation of the real. The difference between Anime and Real life is that in Anime the human beauty is exaggerated and idealised, every thing is clean and free of flaw unlike 3d humans who's form is flawed in one way or the other. Anime nudity and beauty therefore is more potent and dangerous than regular beauty as it is not restricted by the shortcomings of 3D.
>>17891 The last time I watched anime was almost half a year ago. Quit making assumptions about people you don't know.
>>17892 You misunderstand the story of David.
>>17892 You malign and misunderstand Paul; then you portray David as a monster, and the commands of the Lord as monstrous. At this point you sound more like a Gnostic or Liberal or Modernist, than a Christian, and the rest of your post seems to bear out this conclusion.
>>17897 If you can't get something as basic and Christianity 101 level as Paul and David and God's commands for David in the Old Testament, it's no wonder you have such a liberal attitude towards modesty and lust. If you're not a Christian with a basic grasp of Christianity, then we're wasting our time talking past each other. It's just going to be me approaching the issue Biblically, while you approach in a non-Biblical manner. In other words, you need to convince me that you are a Biblically sound Christian who can understand these issues from a Biblical perspective, or I might as well conclude that I'm talking to a wall.
>>17900 What a civil troll.
>>17900 I'll try this one more time: The opinions you expressed on Paul and David: if you were to express those opinions in a Christian catechism class, they would not allow you to progress or get baptized, until you were corrected. Do you understand? Do you understand how out of bounds and even heretical your views on Paul and David are? Your views on Paul and David are so beyond the pale, that you would not be allowed to pass a catechism class. Because of this, I have good reason to believe that you are not a Christian. I am no saying this as just a crass boorish insult or ad hominem. I am saying this sincerely and out of alarm and great concern for you. Because if you cannot get the basic fundamentals of Christianity correct, then your ability to process the world from a Biblical Christian perspective is damaged. This explains why your view on modesty and lust is so off base. Are you a Christian? Do you understand why you are wrong on Paul and David? >>17901 I'm trying to give the poster the benefit of the doubt, but I'm starting to come to your conclusion as well.
Are Hiremasa Yonebayashi's anime movies, like When Marnie was there, any good? I've seen people recommend them, but I've never watched them myself. They sure look cute.
>>17892 >in myself personally We who are strong have an obligation to bear with the failings of the weak, and not to please ourselves. Let each of us please his neighbor for his good, to build him up. For Christ did not please himself, but as it is written, “The reproaches of those who reproached you fell on me.” Romans 15:1-3
>>17900 >Denying people's faith and relationship with the Lord at any turn that a disagreement is no longer easy to refute. Faith has to bear fruit to be good and so far you haven't produced anything that would help the Christians on this board, but only to serve yourself: >Beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves. By their fruits you will recognize them. Are grapes gathered from thornbushes, or figs from thistles? So every good tree bears good fruits, but the rotten tree bears bad fruits. A good tree is not able to bear bad fruits, nor a bad tree to bear good fruits. Every tree not bearing good fruit is cut down and is thrown into fire. Then surely by their fruits you will recognize them. >Not everyone saying to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter into the kingdom of the heavens, but the one doing the will of My Father in the heavens. Many will say to Me in that the day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons and in your name perform many miracles?’ And then I will declare unto them, ‘I never knew you; depart you from Me, those working lawlessness.’ Matthew 7:15-23 Free grace is a misreading of Paul, who you also deny.

This thread is proof that anime is idolatry
>>17914 Anything can be idolatry
>>17917 Why didn't the Calpis stop ;_;
>>17917 Then why are your beliefs on Paul and David so radically wrong?
>>17935 > I will suggest thread goers watch Lain although I'm positive that people will take issue with it only seeing it for what it is at a surface level. Doesn't she "become a god" by the end?
>>17935 Eeeeh I'll be honest, Lain is kinda bad... to me it seems like just some stoner psychedelic 3deep5u pseudo-philosophical incomprehensible bullshit... most boring anime ever... I had to watch it on 2x speed... and also the audio and especially the visuals are very unpleasing... Lain does not look cute at all... And also the message about Internet not being that good of a thing, which I do agree with but, is too superficial and vague at the same time in this show......... Or maybe all of what I just said is wrong and I'm just a "normalfag" or whatever... Also why are you falling for crypto-muslim bait again?...
>>17935 At this point, I could care less about the anime issue. What I'm more concerned about is that you present Paul's attitude towards marriage as a bad example and an excuse to have a lax attitude towards lust. Paul certainly viewed single life as a better gift from God than marriage, both for spiritual reasons (being able to serve God with one's compete full time and attention ) and practical reasons (in times of extreme strife, it may be better to not have children, at least for the time being.) But he never outright demonized marriage. Jesus Christ Himself plainly stated that being single for God was not a gift for everyone, and that the vast majority are better off being married (Matthew 19:11-12.) I am also more concerned about your portrayal of David as just a reckless psychopath. The fact is that the majority of the time he was following God's direction to build up Israel; it was no guise as you say. In Hebrews 11:32, David is listed amongst those in the Hall of Fame of Faith, for such things as in Hebrews 11:33-34: "who through faith subdued kingdoms, worked righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions, quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong, became valiant in battle, turned to flight the armies of the aliens." In short, most of the time in battle, David was following the Lord's orders. Even in trophy getting and looting. Throughout the Old Testament, God would even give specific instructions on what to loot and how much, and when to avoid and even burn loot that was defiled; even sentencing to death those who took loot against this specific command. In other words, by calling David a psychopath, you not only impugn the character of David, you impugn the very character of God Himself. One of the key tenets of Gnosticism being that God in the Old Testament is an "evil false god," is one of the primary reasons why I was fearful that you might have been a Gnostic. I would much rather you repent of your attitudes towards Paul and David, than anime; for if your basic misunderstanding of such essential issues is resolved, then perhaps the minor issues will resolve themselves.
>>17951 Why are you still trying after being such an asshole?
>>17952 Because sound doctrine and salvation is of more importance than how others view you. If I am an *he for being concerned about the fact that his view of Paul and David is not proper Christian orthodoxy than so be it. If I am "out of my mind," it is for God. (2 Corinthians 5:13-14) You yourself should control you tongue. Read James 3:1-12.
>>17955 Do you honestly think you could help anybody by ignoring them confessing how the church had hurt them? You're so obsessed with God that you can't deal with people.
>>17956 He cited his past as evidence that he is a Christian. Your tragic past does not make you a Christian. You can be an orphan raised in the woods by wolves and that will not save you. Once again, if one cannot even get Paul and David right, one's theology is in jeopardy. I'm not going to ignore doctrinal issues just because bad things happened.
>>17958 that's because he thinks salvation is based on his feelings and not on the prescription of God, it's a common cope

Missed opportunity on the ending in my opinion and we'll never get adaptations for the rest of the novels but it's genuinely good. It's essentially a story about growing up and learning to love. Not love in a romantic way but in a "loving your neighbour" kind of way. Despite the fact that it's set in a Catholic school, it's only vaguely Christian themed in terms of visuals. They never use those rosaries to pray. That said, what does it mean for a story to be "Christian?" What are the criteria? Is it >Visual theming >The characters are Christians >Christian themes presented: love, mercy, justice etc >Direct adaptation of the Bible >Only contains "safe for children" stuff ie sinful things are only ever shown to be called out as wrong for the story's moral ? Knowing this would help a lot in recommending stuff.
>>17972 Actual Christianity is boring, repetitive and semetic. Christian aesthetics on the other hand are very cool, like those biblical references in Neon Genesis Evangelion with the crosses, angels and sephiroths etc. If it weren't for anime and vidya I wouldn't be a Christian.

Daria is pretty good. It's slice of life about teens in the 90's and it's very cozy. I hate main character a bit because she reminds me a lot of autists I know irl but the rest of the characters is very likeable especially Trent who is a cool shizoid. I'm afraid there are not many good waifus because best characters are male.
>>18085 Yes I noticed that only animes are mentioned in this thread so I decided to add some diversity. I'll see if I can remember a good live action show too.

>>18087 >diversity
>>18091 There is nothing the bible that speaks against diversity, acts 17:26 is about earlier times. God doesn't care about /pol/ racial politics.
>>18048 I suppose "not enticing sinfulness" means "not full of provocative fanservice" but I'll also assume that in cases like a beach episode, the fact the women are in swimsuits doesn't fall under this. It's tough to come up with examples off the top of my head. Partly because I've watched hundreds of anime and can't remember how much fanservice most of them have. I can at least tell you if it's a significant and deliberate part of the show. My absolute top, most favourite, the only one I can unreservedly give 10/10, flawless masterpiece, best anime ever made is The Tatami Galaxy. It's hard to say anything about it without spoiling it but I can say it's better than neutral on presenting a positive message and life lessons. Essentially, the overarching theme is MC's character growth from someone petty and spiteful to a better person. Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann is packed full of fanservice because it's a show about growing up to be a red-blooded male no indecisive, weakling MC here so don't watch it if that's going to be a problem for you. Just to warn you, the female lead spends the whole time in a bra and short shorts. It is a good story about overcoming adversity though. Second season not quite as good but still good. I've shilled Sakamichi no Apollon here before. I've only read the manga but it's pretty good. Can't comment on the anime adaptation. Has two Christian characters. It's mostly about friends who play jazz together. Good friendship and sticking-together themes. Also has some characters that fall on hard times because they get sucked into commie politics but it doesn't dwell on that much. If you're so /pol/ that people liking and praising black jazz bothers you, well you've been warned. Ending feels very rushed. It's times like this I wish I'd kept a list of everything I watched. If I think of any more, I'll add them. >>18082 >The visuals aren't very good >the soundtrack is just ok Aside from being triggered by your poor taste, I want to say I refuse to denigrate close friendship by equating it to homos. That goes for men or women. People who do this are projecting their own degenerate fetishes in my opinion. There is an actual romantic pairing if I recall but it's not these two. >It's very slow Yes it is. Watch it when you feel like a slow, comfy slice-of-life show that focuses entirely on character relations and growth.
>>18111 >I think this topic of celibate same sex relationships is interesting myself. Funny how the Mod actively purge funposters while this thread stays up despite turning into subliminal LGBTQIA+ propaganda.

>>18117 ignore him, he's the local schizö.
>>18087 That's because it's an anime thread.
>>18111 I mean people can interpret what they like but it doesn't make it there. I am looking at this from the standpoint of the four loves: storge (affection/familial), philia (friendship), eros and agape. Which of these does "romantic friendship" fall into? Certainly the relationships between the onee-samas and petites soeurs can in no way be called erotic. It's closer to familial affection than anything else. Like I said earlier, the show is about love but it's not about homosexual relations. The kind of love that is shown in this show is characterised by patience, consideration, grace and wanting good for others. SPOILERS Yumi's character arc over the entire show is that she goes from someone who needs the love of Sachiko and is quite jealous over it to someone who is able to give love in abundance to others, particularly her soon-to-be petite soeur even when she's unreasonable. There's a good quote towards the end where Yoshino realises that Yumi is growing up without her. SPOILERS Regarding Answer, it's a good example of what I'm talking about. Youko is interested in making Sachiko her soeur but, out of consideration for her difficult position, doesn't want to force the issue by outright asking. Nevertheless, she still wants to talk to her. It's clear from the way she presses Sachiko on her lessons that she wants her to want to do them and not out of some irresolute habit. In this way she shows she cares about Sachiko. She doesn't want to selfishly make Sachiko her soeur. Sachiko understands the entire subtext and quits her lessons because she realises Youko is right thereby accepting her love. It's not stated why Youko was interested in Sachiko in the first place but my interpretation is that in part she worried that Sachiko would have a hard time making friends because of her hectic schedule. This again shows the kind of love we're talking about here. I think this because I've seen the anime and read some of the novels and that's exactly the kind of consideration that shows up. >Other books and real life I'm not talking about that. >celibate same sex relationships So a regular friendship? What are you talking about? ------------- After thinking more about what you wrote and what I've written above, I want you to tell me exactly what you mean by "romantic friendship" because I actually have no idea. Romance is a word that describes a certain sentimentality. What exactly is romantic about these friendships?

I find it sad that anons can't even discuss fictional homosexual romance without thread derailing retards thumping their bibles.
>>18160 I find it sad that fags hate the God who made them.
>>18128 OK it sounds like we're actually talking about the same thing. Your use of different terminology was what threw me off. Yes I think it's clear that the relationships in marimite are intensely close and I think that's a big part of what makes it so good. It makes the portrayal of love more clear by taking an extreme example of it. >>18129 I take the view that only what is written in the story matters. The author can't come back after the fact and claim it meant this or that all along. What is written is what is written. For example, Rowling can claim all she likes that Dumbledore was gay all along but there was never a shred of anything to suggest that. That's why I spent all those words in explanation: to show why I think the way I do. Looking at wikipedia's page on Class S, I'm interested to note they list Little Women because that's exactly the genre of literature I would place this in. Although I was thinking more along the lines of Anne of Green Gables and books by Jane Austin, the Bronte sisters etc. Anyway thanks for your clarification. You studied the four loves in highschool? Did you go to a Catholic school or something?

>>17842 >Nausicaa of the Valley of Wind Like a lot of Miazaki stuff this was a very beautiful movie but that scene where she beats up the soldiers and than faints for no reason really broke my immersion. I mean she'd have to way like 80 pounds at most and those men had all been trained and conditioned for close combat, the male love interest (I forget his name) even struggles with one later. She takes a lot of risks actually which you'd think she wouldn't get a way with being a princess. Also the giant warrior melting was depressing and kind of gross but thats a different issue.

>>18223 >manga rec Based. Another good one is Sounan desu ka? It's about a group of 4 shipwrecked highschool girls on an isolated, uninhabited, pacific island, their friendship and struggle for survival. It manages to both be cute, as you'd expect, and tense. There's realism, and they face plenty of danger and challenges. The artwork is often stunningly beautiful, and it's even educational if you ever find yourself all alone in nature. One of my all-time favorite manga.

>>18421 Whatever fruitful discussion we were having earlier has dried up. Now there's nothing but a two-pronged demoralisation attempt trying to false flag both sides. Even in talking about anime, it's gone off the rails. The topic was Christian anime so I expect an explanation of a recommendation's Christian themes. It's disappointing because I thought I was having a good discussion with 4ed378. But after seeing the behaviour in his latest posts, I don't know anymore. I have to wonder how he thinks the thread has turned out. Does he think it's still going in a positive direction? He has 40 posts in here which is a lot more than anyone else so he's had more of a hand in the discussion. He must have some opinion on the matter.

Yes, there are a few bad apples here and there (lgbtp anime, anime porn, etc) but in general it's way cleaner than contemporary western media. And most of the time when you see an "anime" on the internet promoting trannies or something like that, it's not even anime but rather some random western kike shit but with an art style reminding of anime. Oh and by the way not only anime is not an islamic plot to subvert Christianity, but it also is forbidden in islam since art is haram. So, by watching anime you're literally fighting islam.
>>18449 >Oh and by the way not only anime is not an islamic plot to subvert Christianity, but it also is forbidden in islam since art is haram. So, by watching anime you're literally fighting islam. Lol >Indeed, since the emergence of Islam during the 600s, positive narratives about icons, the making of devotional paintings, and the preservation of European printed images of Jesus Christ can be found across Arab, Persian, Turkish, and Indian lands. >These textual and visual materials disprove the notions that Muslims are inherently adverse to figural representation and that they might consider a depiction of Christ, like the Salvator Mundi, a graven image. >The story of images of Jesus Christ in Islam can be traced to the earliest Islamic texts, which describe the Prophet Muhammad's reconsecration of the Ka'ba in Mecca upon his return to the city after a period of exile. >Writing in the 8 th century, Muhammad's biographer Ibn Ishaq informs us that Muhammad smashed approximately 360 idols that represented the pagan gods of Arabia. At the very same time, however, he is said to have safeguarded an icon of the Virgin Mary and Jesus Christ, possibly of Coptic or Byzantine manufacture, which was stored inside the Ka'ba until the building's eventual destruction in a fire.[1] >This detail indicates that Muhammad's act of iconoclasm did not seek to obliterate images ipso facto. Rather, he attempted to overthrow paganism and polytheism—via their associated objects and symbolic stand-ins—in order to establish a purely monotheistic world order, even as he reasserted the positive value of maintaining an image of Mary (a holy woman) and Jesus (an Abrahamic prophet) in Islam's holiest site.
