Chelsea Machiela published an article in ViewsHound today called “Animephobia – The fear of Anime.” It deals with the perception of anime by outsiders as something dark and unpleasant.
There are a couple of concepts that Chelsea introduces which I think are worth mentioning. First, she discusses religion (or lack thereof) in anime. She also seems to purpose her piece toward conservative parents, which I think is the best audience for such an article.
Please go give it a read!
