Okay so now you know how Death Note affects China and Korea, but what about America (beyond Madonna)?
Well a high school student in Virginia was caught with a Death Note. Okay not a real one, but basically it was a hitlist with other students names. Here’s a link to the situation on nbc12.com. Unfortunately someone didn’t know how to spell Japan. They wrote Japen instead. I thought someone was supposed to edit what was typed for the news networks. Apparently not. Click here. It’s a lot of publicity for anime and manga but not in the way that anyone wants. Its probably going to end up as another ban in schools. Remember when Pokemon cards were banned?
There’s also a website for death note where you can type in how you want someone to die. Here. Sounds scary? If you don’t want to write in it, you can read what others have written and I have to say people are mean when they can hide their identity. But then doesn’t the manga Death Note teach us that?
