30+ Of The Greatest Anime Characters Who Are Christians

Some Anime writers do not treat Christianity any better than Shintoism or any other religion.

Some writers use them for visual, conceptual, or comedic factors, but they usually do not bother with authenticity or accuracy.

That is why you don’t have to expect much from Christians, priests, and nuns to follow Christian traditions.

So here’s a list of Anime Characters who are Christians.


1.) Canute (Vinland Saga)
