Matt Selman, executive producer of The Simpsons, recently revealed that The Simpsons will be parodying the anime Death Note.
Halloween Special Episode
One of the most popular animated series in the United States, The Simpsons has never shied away from parodying other shows or even famous people. But she doesn’t stop at anime either and has already had successful titles such as »One Piece«, »Naruto«, »Bleach« and »Attack on Titan« themed.
Now another anime hit joins this list with »Death Note«. Speaking at San Diego Comic-Con last weekend, Matt Selman confirmed that the anime will be parodied as part of the Treehouse of Horror series airing this Halloween. For this purpose, another studio is commissioned to make the “Simpsons” into a full-fledged anime.
The anime adaptation of »Death Note« consists of 37 episodes and is based on the manga series by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata, which was published in »Weekly Shonen Jump« magazine between December 2003 and May 2006. The publisher TOKYOPOP published all twelve volumes with German translation, while the anime adaptation is available from KAZÉ Anime.
