Gods and Shoguns: Christianity in Japan
Hosted by Jeffrey Rubin
Christian characters and iconography are extremely popular themes in anime. They cross all genres, from Kotomine Kirei in Fate/Stay Night to the almost limitless number of Catholic school girls in shoujo manga. But why? Christians only represent about half of a percent of Japan's population. In this short history of Christianity in Japan, you'll learn why such a minor religion is so disproportionately represented in anime and manga.
