Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Postmodernism is a literary movement present throughout the contemporary culture of the day. It is a driving factor in literature, art, philosophy, and society. In this respect, current anime has several postmodern tendencies that ultimately drive character development and work to construct the individual worlds presented. The foundational question of postmodernism focuses on the nature of reality and how we, as individuals, construct our own interpretation of reality. In this panel we will be identifying the postmodern construction of Jinsei Kataoka’s written work along with Kazuma Kondou’s illustrations within the world of Deadman Wonderland.
