Dead Like Us: Shinigami, Death Lore and Japanese Media
Hosted by Anime Anthropologist
Shinigami seem to be everywhere. But what exactly are they? Where did they come from? How do they relate to Japanese culture? Or are they simply a modern creation. Dead Like Us explores the origins of the shinigami idea, how it fits into Japanese religion, mythology and folklore, and how they are both a foreign concept and quintessentially Japanese.
