The latest episode of the Postmodern Realities podcast features yours truly discussing animé: how I first discovered animé and became a fan of it, popular titles and influential directors, the diversity that exists within animé, and even how animé 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 animé’s origins and growth in popularity, as well as several titles that might be of particular interest for Christians.
