Death threat is a manga and anime series originally written by Tsugumi Ohba and illustrated by Takeshi Obata that has achieved cult classic status over the years. The original series explores the journey of a seemingly normal but genius teenager who receives a Death Note, a mystical and powerful notebook, which grants him supernatural power over the fate of other humans.
