Podcast: Unpacking Anime’s Thematic and Spiritual Depth

The latest episode of the Postmodern Realities podcast features yours truly discussing anime: how I first discovered anime and became a fan of it, popular titles and influential directors, the diversity that exists within anime, and even how anime depicts Christianity. It was a lot of fun to do, so thanks to Melanie Cogdill for the invitation.

Fun/awkward personal note: After we finished recording, I was suddenly struck with anxiety that I’d mispronounced “Studio Ghibli” throughout the entire thing. (But I didn’t. Whew.)

This appearance is a follow-up of sorts to a 2014 article that I wrote for the Christian Research Journal in which I discussed anime’s origins and growth in popularity, as well as several titles that might be of particular interest for Christians.
