What are the connotations of the model of world building as a metaphor for our current engagement with media? What are the consequences for our relationship to fiction? Utilizing examples from the context of popular media culture in Japan, this paper will examine different models of world building – both theoretically and practically formulated ones – and their different problems and implications. It will propose a shift in perspective to the question of fictional bodies in the world(s) that will incorporate ideas by Hans Blumenberg on the disparity of lifetime and worldtime. This shift is intended to re-introduce questions of temporality to the strongly spatializing model of world(s).
