99% of the world would use the death note in either a stupid, or horrific way. Light, despite his academic intelligence, had no sense of justice whether he claimed to or not. Maybe it was the Death note that corrupted his mind, but I think in the end, pretty much anyone would've done the same and gotten themselves killed. No human can decide the fate of others. It's not possible for things to end well. I'm sure there are at least a few people who could use the death note correctly in this world, but the chances of one of those people getting their hands on something like that are little to none anyway.
kes you alot smarterl..
Nah I don't think death not affects the health of kids/teens unless they are already partially insane or believe things in animes
I'm a teen and I watched it. I haven't gone crazy. I have plenty of friends that watch it. They're not crazy.
In my opinion it is all depending on the i devidral in question. I think shows like this can efect a persions mental state but it might be a raire case.

What a great question!
haha i kid i kid. sorta...
In 1981, John Hinckley attempted to assassinate President Ronald Reagan due to his obsession with Jodie Foster as a result of watching the movie Taxi Driver.
In 2004, a chinese kid committed suicide by jumping out of a 24 story building because he thought he would be able to meet his World of Warcraft character by doing so. (not the only suicide to occur as a result of WOW)
Can TV, movies, games, books, etc... affect the mental health of people?
Yes, but not to everyone, and not to any particular age group. The is an incredibly small percentage of people who are already f***ed up in the head that will go ape s**t as a result of these forms of entertainment.
Being messed up in the cranium isn't the only thing that'll lead people to do stupid things. Poverty often results in criminal activity. Just look at poor countries.
Some people can just lose it for the moment. For a while it was legal to kill a man in Texas if you caught your wife cheating by claiming temporary insanity. Temporary insanity is something you can still claim anywhere in the U.S. to have your sentence reduced of even have the charges dropped.
The key thing to remember is that everything affects everyone in a completely different way.
However, a mentally healthy, and generally happy person will not be affected by a show like death note or any other scotch forms of entertainment. The people that tweak out as a result of these things will more than likely have something else thats affecting them beforehand, and then the show or whatever just pushes them over the edge.
Kaleohano derailing threads everywhere he go
Only if there's something wrong with your mental health to begin with. Kind of like when people blame violent acts on violent video games or movies; they started out that way and were possibly influenced. But, never seen it, so yea.
i think so that it is possible in the child's and also for old persons who are nearly to die, the reason is that the children has less mind and knowledge so when they read about the death in some notes they take it seriously. similarly the old persons know that their death time is near because they live their life allot, but after reading these types of notes they become feared.

Anime is a lot like sex. Done right it's a beautiful act of creation that brings a little more light into the world. If it's sick and wrong... it's even better.
