Parents and Death Note

Journal Entry: Thu Jun 19, 2014, 10:23 PM

So today, I got a bunch of Death Note merch, including an adjustable Chibi L figurine. As I was playing around with and trying to figure out how to swap out the facial expression band stuff, my mum came in and asked me what the hell I was doing. I explained that I was trying to make L sit on his chair (the L way, that is). Being the curious parent she is, she asked me if she could watch or read Death Note.

The first two volumes are being borrowed by a friend right now, so she wouldn't be able to read it. However, I could invite her to watch it with me... But I'm not sure if I should. There's nothing too inappropriate, other than the fact that the series is centred around a notebook that can kill people. So, should I let my mum watch Death Note?

And if yes, sub or dub? She's watched a sub before (Ponyo), and I like the sub more than the dub, but since Death Note is really confusing, maybe dub would be best?

  • Listening to: Welcome to Night Vale
  • Reading: Lord of the Flies
  • Watching: Doctor Who, Ouran High School Host Club, Other

Knowing your mom.... I'd say no.... But if yes, then sub so she gets confused and won't stop you from watching Death Note.

But then again your mom may be completely different than the way she is at Guides and other stuff. So it depends I guess. .-.

XD this is the person who recommended the matrix to me (which is rated R because of the violence and gore, apparently). I think she acts that way in  Guides to seem more intimidating

Okay then yes and give her an option to sub or dub. xD

I wouldn't allow someone younger than yourself to watch it, as this anime circulates around death. However, seeing as your mother is obviously an adult, I think she can handle it XD There isn't that much violence in it, and pretty much all the deaths are quick (especially Matt's ;-; )
I think you should ask your mum on the preference of how she would like to watch it. Some people find it more entertaining with subs, while others find it easier with dubs c:
