Anime is Lit

Oct 8, 2017

This time we’re diving into Natsume Yuujinchou, also known as Natsume’s Book of Friends, with our very special guest Ethan. We discuss why the show resonates with us, how it uses short story techniques to build the overarching emotional storyline, and the use of mental illness allegory. Join us as we talk about one of our favorite shows and unpack what make it so meaningful.

*Note: the name of the Eastern story technique Ethan described is "Kishōtenketsu".
