DEATH NOTE is an intricately plotted mystery/horror manga series (the anime adapation of which is currently running on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim) that centers on a mystical notebook that causes the death of anyone whose name is written in it.
Apparently that fantasy is too real for school officials in South Carolina. They've removed a student from middle school for keeping his own "Death Note," with seven names written in it.
Perhaps some counseling might be appropriate for such as student. But the principal is quoted as stating, "We treat situations like this the same as if a student called in a bomb threat or brought a weapon to school[.]"
Sounds like somebody's taking anime a bit too seriously -- and I don't mean the student.
