I think, the Fear behind this all is the Amok raids in the past. If you want to understand the feeling here. (I assume that). So it is not only an Cosplay thing to them. So take that in consideration

Not this again. Sociopathic teenagers seem intent on giving Death Note a bad name.

I mean sure it's not quite as stupid as watching Breaking Bad and deciding to throw away your life and cook meth with your buddy but it's still quite concerning. Not to mention it's a pretty awful interpretation of the show's themes.

Oh boy this again! Sad

Some discipline may be necessary, but obviously what's more important is that this girl gets the help she needs. Writing the names of people you want dead is probably the sign of a mental health problem.

True story. I got bullied a lot in middle school. Eventually, I thought it would be a good idea to keep daily log of the things other students did to me in class. One of the bullies found out, went to the principal about it, and I ended up getting in trouble! Apparently writing things about other students without tgeirxknuwlefge or consent was against the rules and I was asked to stop immediately.

So stories like this don't surprise me anymore.

I agree, discipline is necessary... for the 17 students that were likely bullying this kid.

Given America's current run of what feels like one mass shooting a week, them reacting to finding a list of names & causes of death makes sense.

Also, is this an actual Death Note (as in was inspired by Death Note in using a branded notebook( or a death list? Because Death Note didn't invent the concept.

Getting one's hands on a Death Note without getting caught will hardly go according to keikaku. . . . . . .

Oh my god, not this again. The girl shouldn't get punished for something like that. I think that they should take this as a cry for help. I once drew a picture of the people i hated on badly drawn tombstones because they were bulling me and i wanted them gone. I didn't get in trouble for that. This needs to stop, it's just an imaginary thing. If they believe that a book can actually kill people then feel free to take away books and pencils. (That last sentence was sarcasm)

Seriously? The fourth time this year? And it's been going on for several years. I mean, I get why they're concerned, and I get why someone would do this as a venting method, but it gets so tiring to keep seeing this happen. And it's definitely not the last time.

Just once I wish that one of these cases revealed that said teen isn't mentally messed up and just a bad seed.

I don't think they ever mentioned that the girl was mentally messed up or a bad seed. I read that she just wrote down the names of the people who bullied her because it was wrong to actually do harm to them. (But that was said from a friend of the girl who owned the notebook.) But that doesn't really sound like either to me.

I have a Death note myself with hundreds of names. If a friend's name is in it I do it right in front of them and come up with the most abserd cause of death possible.

Though not long ago I figured people freak out over nothing so I placed a disclaimer in the back of mine starting it was for entertainment purposes only and no harm is in reality actually wished on anyone. But that's mostly because of the large number of Political names contained within,

I live near an apple orchard anyways. I doubt Ryuk can be bother to follow through on anything as it is.

To aviod confuses it's a literal branded deathnote replica not a random notebook.

School needs to investigate what those 17 students did to the death note owner. American school system always let the bullies get away. A lot of bad things happen because school doesn't do anything to the bullies.
