Every day, media uses its various outlets to bombard the public with tons of information. Media’s entertainment sector uses the seemingly innocent genre of cartoons—specifically Japanese anime—to convey its ideas.
But is anime really that innocent? In Prince of Media: The Anime Cartoon Attack, 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’ opinions about personal and spiritual matters and how those behind anime production impose their often anti-Christian ideologies on the viewer.
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.

Tell us a little about yourself. I am a father and a cartoon lover. I loved watching cartoons eversince I was young.
What was your motivation behind this project? As the cartoon genre grew more and more as time went on I started noticing changes in the boldness of the underlying messages with these cartoons especially anime. So much, that I couldn't ignore them anymore and just enjoy the cartoon feature.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? Hopefully, people will gain a little insight on what is being communicated by the anime cartoons to the viewers especially to our children and young adults. How the cartoons are used as vehicles to deliver messages about politics, morals and religion matters.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? In doing the research I began to see more in depth the type of deception these anime cartoons are working together to deploy.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? My favorite author is Frank Peretti. It was his book, "Piercing the Darkness" that inspired me to write this book as well.
