Anime are japanese narratives that blend the art of manga to film productions, and has become the subject of discussion in academia by particularizing the Nipponese pop culture or the fantastic reception from the West, making it about 60% of its programming in television channels open. Drawing on the Anthropology of the Imaginary postulated by G. Durand, based in Semiotics discourse practiced by A. J. Greimas and his followers, as well as studies of postmodernity by M. Maffesoli, this dissertation took the symbolic structures as corpus of discursive anime Death Note. The narrative tells the journey of Light Yagami, a young student from Japan who finds a notebook belonging to a Japanese reaper named Ryuk, where names are written may have manipulated their deaths. The images of anime break with moral paradigms when your central character seems to violate the archetypal hero and enter the building of a new constellation of statements that connect the notion of justice, while that allow merge the West. Questioned as myths and what shape or reframe the narrative, and how they reflect a cultural imaginary Japanese, using it for the mitodologia and semiotics of passions. They came up to the mythical traits of Siddharta, Adam and Paradise Lost when analyzed Mouse Yagami, the main character, the mythical traits of Our Lady, Eve, Lilith and Isis when analyzed Misa Amane, and traces of mythic Trickster, Prometheus inverted and Apollo when analyzed shinigami Ryuk. These images mean or fail to mean in contemporary society, highlighting the plurality of new thinking being built on what we call postmodernity.
