UNITED STATES: The creators of the famous sitcom, The Simpsons, have announced that one of its segments will feature another famous anime’s animation style for its well-known “Treehouse of Horror.” The segment will be a parody of the anime in its entirety.
The Simpsons brings the parody of Death Note
The Simpsons has been running for over thirty years and is known for its parodies of horror shows. The Simpsons: Treehouse of Horror segments have been a feature since the second season of the show. The segments were introduced as “Halloween specials.”
Starting back in 1990 with a take on “The Raven,” a famous Edgar Allen Poe story, the “Treehouse of Horror” segment has brought laughs and terror with every instalment. As time progressed, the focus of the specials shifted from spooky themes to more modern and less scary stories.
The show also showcased the parody of the hit Netflix series Stranger Things. When the special was in its initial days, its episodes were petrifying. Some writers even believed that they may have gone too far in places.
The last week’s segment, “Treehouse of Horror Presents: Not It,” was a full-length episode that parodied Stephen King’s blockbuster horror movie, It. According to the multiple media portals, the first images from the segment titled “Death Tome” revealed a recreation of Death Note’s look.
The character of Lisa will play the role of Light Yagami in the parody. The otherwise animated characters of The Simpsons seem to have more realistic features.
According to the clip reposted, Lisa is a misanthrope who believes that humanity deserves to go extinct. Soon, the Death Tome falls from the sky, and after reading it, she discovers that any person whose name she writes in the tome will die. She shrugs it off as a prank as the clip ends.
The Simpsons can be currently streamed on Disney+.
