Literature, art, music, film, and more have been influenced by the movement known as "eroguro." The words “erotic” and “grotesque” take on new meanings in this hard-to-define movement and create something both unique in style and distinctly Japanese in execution. Join A-to-J Connections as we look at all aspects of ero guro such as its historic and cultural background, the Abe Sada Incident, some of the amazing (sometimes disturbing) art that the scene has created, and its influence in film, anime, manga, music, and literature. All these topics and more will be covered in a panel like no other! Please note that this panel is NOT for the faint of heart and will feature some images and videos you probably won't be able to unsee!
