Anime is an audiovisual, symphonic narrative form characterised by diversity, fluidity, hybridity and intertexuality. The abundant borrowing of images is a common practice in both manga and anime, and is considered as homage to the pretext and/or the establishing of a provocative dialogue between texts. This paper will discuss some of its distinctive characteristics, mainly intertexuality, using Yoshitoshi Abe's enigmatic "Haibane Renmei" series (2002) and Haruki Murakami's novel, "Hard-boiled Wonderland and the End of the World" (hereafter HBW/EOW) (1985).
