I’m very pleased to announce that the December issue of the Christian Research Journal will feature an article that I wrote on the topic of animé. The article offers a brief overview of animé’s growing influence in American pop culture, takes an honest look at some of animé’s darker aspects, and then discusses several animé titles and series that Christians may find praiseworthy and thought-provoking.
It was a fun piece to research and write, and if nothing else, it may be the only animé-related article you’ll read that discusses gnosticism alongside Ghost in the Shell or mentions Bertrand Russell in a review of Attack on Titan.
