Ashita no Anime Podcast 03 – Chuunibyou with Charles
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.
