Ashita no Anime Podcast 03 – Chuunibyou with Charles

Download MP3

This time around I wanted to talk about a newer anime that is currently airing.  Charles and I discuss the themes in Chuunibyou from our respective views on religion.  Charles sees it as a story of growth from an immature view of faith to more level-headed understanding, but I see the characters’ interactions as a metaphor of what it’s like to be an atheist having to deal with a difficult, conservative fundamentalist.  Please be warned, this podcast contains spoilers to episode 7, so if you’re not caught up be aware that we give away some important details of the story as a necessary part of the debate.

And of course, I’m always looking for new guest commentators.  If you would like to have a dialogue with me and voice your opinions in real time on a series or subject matter you disagree on, get in contact and lets see if we can make it happen.

    This is such an interesting topic. When it comes to religion, I honestly have no idea where I stand with my beliefs, but this gives me a lot to think about. And I particularly appreciate this discussion because, for one, you guys are very open minded and respectful towards each other and that is something I rarely see.

      Thanks for the kind words. Certainly, I think we each represent a portion that our respective sides aren’t particularly “known for,” which are atheists/Christians who aren’t buttheads. 😉
