Poetry in Anime: The Power of Words in a Visual Medium

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

Japan has a rich sense of literary tradition. The dense poems of this island nation have been written, spoken, and chanted for ages for use in everything from courtship and spiritualism to politics and philosophy. Much has changed within the nation, and with it the poetry of its people and how it is delivered. Join Ink of Otaku USA and AniGamers.com as he points out instances within the relatively new medium of anime where the ancient power of traditional poetry is leveraged for humor, introspection, and drama.
