Well first off I had to check to see if the info was true and according to Wikipedia it truly has happened:
Now even for people like us whom can watch a series with such concept and not take it too personally or offensive to any extent aside, we've got to understand that this can very easily be taken as a SERIOUS situation as a "Death Note" is basically a "hit-list" and such things should be taken with utmost caution and seriousness. Its not even funny as a "joke", there is nothing "funny" about creating a list of people that you'd want dead or hurt, its just wrong.Originally Posted by Wikipedia
Yes, its something thats taken out of fiction but the fact is that no chances can be taken when such matter is in debate. But I also dont see the point of "banning" it, especially in a world that we live in offers many ways into obtaining such things like manga with ease. Its really all up to the parental guidance of these individuals and their morality.
But the topic I highlighted in red is a completely different story. I'm not sure what to say on that matter...
