Math Note: A Parody: A Review

If you like Death Note at all...
If you greatly disdain Death Note...
If you have no affiliation with Death Note...

...You will enjoy this parody. Now, I know what you're thinking. Right off the bat. Parodies aren't funny.
I think most aren't either. Though I watched a Fruits Basket parody once before, and almost broke a rib laughing. But I digress.

"School Note", or "Math Note" as it is more commonly referred, is a hilarious retelling of Death Note as a story of a student who struggles with math, until the Math Note falls from the sky. Most of the time while watching, you are assured to be confused, stupefied, and laughing. The parody includes many gratuitous pop culture references, including "The Price is Wrong" music and spot-on dubbing from The Godfather.

All I have to say is, "Salty, Ryuk."

When I showed THC this parody, he would, consecutively after finishing an episode, run to my room, open the door, quote lines, shut the door, and run away, even before I had a chance to say anything.

Go on, give it a shot:

520 Pockā‚§ to whomever can name where the opening dialog comes from.

And part two:

"Every time Light-o studies math, God kills some random guy."

I think what makes this parody so funny, BTW, is the way it makes light of an intensely dark series.

the opening dialog was Kyon's dialog in The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya on the second episode i think ^-^

Technically, yes, the second episode.
You are correct!
