<p>Every day, media uses its various outlets to bombard the public with tons of information. Media&rsquo;s entertainment sector uses the seemingly innocent genre of cartoons&mdash;specifically Japanese anime&mdash;to convey its ideas.</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>But is anime really that innocent? In <em>Prince of Media: The Anime Cartoon Attack,</em> author D. J. Harris shows how anime storylines are not as harmless as they might appear at first glance. In his review of more than thirty anime cartoon series, Harris explains how the storylines are used to manipulate viewers&rsquo; opinions about personal and spiritual matters and how those behind anime production impose their often anti-Christian ideologies on the viewer.</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>This study shows how exquisite drawings and beautiful music are used in anime as tools to deploy a low-level brainwashing scheme on unsuspecting viewers. Equipped with the power of knowledge, viewers can discern the hidden messages behind what seems like innocent entertainment.</p>
