Season 34 of The Simpsons will feature an anime parody of the popular anime and manga Death Note. Simpsons showrunner Matt Selman shared this information with Deadline.
The parody will appear as one of the long-running show’s stories told in this year’s “Treehouse of Horror” episode. Speaking with Variety, Selman added that the Death Note parody was animated by “an entirely different studio” and is “incredibly authentic Simpsons anime.” Selman added, “I really think people [are] gonna freak out over that. We’re not trying to take on every single anime, it’s an unbelievably rich and diverse genre within itself.. it’s just one beloved thing, this show Death Note.”
