Is it a Christian thing?

    I think it's more a cultural thing (but: yes, culturally influenced by Christianity).

    I thought it quite odd

    but interesting

    while watching the sub

    to see a large crowd of Japanese people

    happily cheering "Satan! Satan! Satan!"

    It's just not done in the U.S.

    (and, of course, in the U.S., and probably in Canada, UK and Australia, strict-devout-fanatic Christian parents would be horrified to see their children watching such a thing).
