Death note does actualy have a deep sadistic story line when you read it cearfully and you never know how far the russian translated copies go as far as a real pg 13 approval or not. We all know that the english versions are always dumbed down from hot japanese language.

It probably was not the problem but it would have contributed towards this girls death in some way as did Naruto with the other child. Remember this is sadly nothing new as people have used things in the past just like these 2 incidents and have killed themselves. WE all know of people who have killed themselves over video games in the news. I remember reading an artcile where a 13 year old taiwan boy killed himself after he attacked his mum for losing a D2 hardcore character.

Typical stupidity. Why not just declare that she had parents taking care of her and therefore parenting should be banned? They do have more of a chance in Russia to get it banned, but Putin seems interested only in censoring the speech of political enemies, and not entertainment.

Banning Death Note because parents think it drives their children to desire death is like asking to have marijuana banned completely because someone died from a non-marijuana drug but since it was found next to the suicide note it must be a killer.

Sadly all too common. Popular media such as anime and video games are often blamed whenever something tragic happens, which to me indicates that people forget such things were happening long before.

I don't know when people will learn that if someone commits suicide over a piece of fiction (movie, anime, manga, video game, etc), there was probably some other underlying cause or problem. Sure, i've watched some animes, read some manags or seen something that depresses me, but that doesn't mean i'll go kill myself.
