“Sometimes you have to pick the gun up to put the Gun down.”  -  Malcom X

Discussion points

  • What are the ethical implications of depicting violence against non-human entities or characters, such as robots or monsters, in anime? 
  • Does this portrayal of violence against non-human entities affect the way we perceive violence against other humans?
  • Is anime more influential than other genres such as wrestling when it comes to being violence?
