    Well, that was funnier than I thought. XD

    Also, I thought the worms that were all over the Raging Boar God from Princess Mononoke were really patches of his blood. Chew over that for a moment, now.

    Yeeeeeeeeah. @_@

    And now I'll have nightmares filled with Tom and Sam's spooky faces. Thanks.

    Monsters covered in worms continue to be gross.

    Happy Halloween guys!

    Well, yeah... but that'd be a really predictable list.

    Dig Deeper into Death Note

    A shounen franchise of enormous popularity, Death Note started with Tsugumi Ohba's manga, illustrated by the popular artist Takeshi Obata. The series is essentially an extended police chase thriller, but with added twists, including the existence of Shinigami (death gods) who can control the death of humans.
