I had a random question pop into my head regarding Death Note and the character Kimi from Horizon of the Middle of Nowhere. Since I'm not all that aware of the lore and rules behind the Death Note I decided to ask here.

In Horizon when Kimi is attacked by Slicing Dragonfly it has no effect because her name is meaningless to her. Since the Death Note uses a similar mechanic via writing down someone's name would Kimi be immune to the Death Note since she doesn't recognize her name as something that identifies her as a person?

Doesn't matter if it's meaningless to her or not, doesn't matter if SHE doesn't recognize it as her name or not. In the end, it is her name and she would be affected by the Death Note.

THOUGH THIS IS WHAT I THINK.

Not a fan of Deathnote although I have watched it. Just speculation, as all cross story interpretations are, but I'd guess Aoi Kimi would be immune to it just like Tonbogiri's binding. Metaphysics are different in general in HOTMONW, the only reason the Deathnote is special really is that its in a world of normal human beings. I'm fairly certain that Neshinbara and Shakespeare could probably do the same things the death note does while writing on a napkin. Tonbogiri itself could probably make someone immune to the Deathnote as well by just making someone nameless.

The Tonbogiri is a supernatural weapon as well that works off of names. In the world of Horizon it is possible to strip someone metaphysically of their name entirely. If the Tonbogiri does not work on her it means that her name doesn't exist on a metaphysical level, which is what the Deathnote works on, as evidenced by the fact that you have to know a persons "true name" for it to work.

Hmm... okay, then why couldn't L be killed simply by writing "Ryuzaki" in the Death Note? He recognized it as his name, responded to it as his name, it had meaning to him, yet it's my understanding that they had to use his "true name".

I suppose in the end it's an apples and oranges question. Trying to apply the "rules" of one story to the "rules" of another. Still, if given the chance I'd love to pose it to Ouba -san.
