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. The panel explores concepts from Japanese religion, death customs and folklore and media representations.
