Given her newfound power, Lisa will most likely serve as the protagonist of the parody trying to fix the world. However, her journey isn’t as easy as she deals with some unforeseen consequences along the way. In the background, fans can also see anime versions of Disco Stu and the twins, Sherri and Terri.

Excited about the Halloween special, fans took to Twitter as one wrote, “I can’t believe The Simpsons made a Death Note parody.”

“The Simpsons doing a Death Note parody is something I never knew I needed,” wrote another.

“This was the same studio that did Death Note. I really love how they did the Simpsons here. Homer looks more like Carl of ATHF though lol,” tweeted a third fan.
