Death Note Stirs Controversy in China
posted on 2005-02-06

Imitating events in the manga series Death Note, Chinese school students in the city of Shenyang have take to writing death notes. The students buy special stationary and follow instructions such as "Write the cause of death and the person's name backwards and the person will die in 40 seconds."

A middle school student told the Shenyang Night Report, "Many of my friends have Death Note. When they are tired of studying, they have fun by writing down the names of teachers they don't like."

Some Shenyang schools have banned the manga and related stationary, the newspaper called Death Note, "Poison, creating wicked hearts." Others however, including one major Chinese newspaper, feel that the ban is an over-reaction and is inappropriate. Some have suggested that overreactions such as these are what stifle creativity in China.

No it isn't? I just went to China last September and people were selling Death Note DVDs... (probably fake)... and merchandise, and manga at a manga book store. >___>

But yeah, I read that somewhere.
Something about kids threatening teachers and stuff "I'll kill you with my DN".
