The Simpsons is Going Anime With Death Note Parody

Lisa Simpson found the Death Note and is ready to exact justice upon the world. No, this is not an early April Fool’s joke. DR Movie, the South Korean animation studio that worked with Madhouse on Death Note, animated a parody of Death Note for The Simpsons. In this short clip, the titular Death Note is called the Death Tome, with some new rules.

Every Halloween, The Simpsons has a little Treehouse of Horror horror compilation. Some of the segments reference other works, such as Peanuts with “It’s the Grand Pumpkin, Milhouse” and Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Raven” with…”The Raven.” This year, it will go full anime for one of the three segments. Outside of the clip, you can see the anime versions of Homer and Marge. In the clip, you can see anime versions of Disco Stu, Terri, and Sherri.

Other than The Simpsons, Netflix is also interested in bringing Death Note’s Japanese tale to American soil. It is currently in the process of developing yet another live-action series based on Death Note. It will be different from the Netflix film (in which Light became a white teenager named Light Turner), with the creators of Stranger Things working on it.

The Simpsons will air this year’s “Treehouse of Horror” on October 30, 2022. The Death Note segment will be the second of three, with the others parodying Babadook and Westworld.
