This article considers social control and closed worlds in various manga, providing an answer to two theoretical questions: to what extent do closed worlds and immersive narratives dovetail within science-fiction manga (and anime), and can a general “range” of possible interpretations be outlined? The article answers these questions by using Shingeki no Kyojin as a point of reference, given its near-prototypical closed-world setting, for discussing four other manga (Blame!, Nijūseiki Shōnen, Btooom!, and Yakusoku no Neverland) and three anime (Shōjo Kakumei Utena, Ergo Proxy, and Texhnolyze). Like the point of reference, these works also blend themes and aspects from other seemingly distinct genres. In these works, closed and controlled worlds double as settings and themes that permit authors to develop immersive narratives.
