Supposedly, I've always been told things that distract you from the remembrance of God are haram. It's possible to justify why cartoons anime and video games may be ruled haram. Research shows that movies, dramas and video games can have temporary or even permanent effects on us.

Then it means everything is haram? I mean spending time with family,going out with friends,working and studying. Because depends on whatever you're doing you're focusing on that thing like having a conversation, Correct me if I'm wrong.

Anime fan here. If watching Naruto, Bleach, or One Piece will lead to haram acts then they should be avoided --- the same goes with video games and cartoons etc. But the shows themselves aren't haram just because they have characters who can cut buildings in half with swords, or can cause explosions with their boogers.

Btw, what's your favourite out of those three?

Salaam dear brother @CyborgNinjaDude

 

This is the extent of my knowledge, you may want to confirm this with someone who is more learned:

 

With any visual media, if a series or movie is known to be pornographic (like "Game of Thrones," for example), then it is not permissible to watch. If you know the content is reasonably decent (morally), then it is OK. However, even if it is not explicitly haraam to see every scene of a given movie, one must be careful that if there is some subversive element that one not become influenced by it. I think for people who lack a certain deal of mistrust / suspicion / critical thinking toward visual media, certain shows or films could be considered haraam even if they have no sexually suggestive scenes or excessive violence.

 

And of course, for anyone, regardless of their ability to see through subversive content, if something draws them away from God then of course it becomes haraam on them. This is a principle of fiqh.

 

In my opinion, stay away from visual media which has bad content, because seeing certain things can be harmful to one's soul. Also: learn how to view every movie or series with a critical eye, even if you like it. As long as you do this, you should be good to go.

I think so too, If it has bad influence on you then it becomes haram. And Naruto is definitely my favorite.

Argument sounds logical. I'll try akagi out.
