Well that was a bit intense!
Our launch Death Note Month of... event in honour of Light Yagami elicited FORTY-EIGHT posts to site, plus associated webpages et al. When the three voice actor interviews come in, they'll make it fifty-one.
To say that we didn't except that is a bit of an understatement.
So, ready to do it all again?
It's Matsuda Month! (Finally...)
If you're wondering what it's all about, then you really weren't here last month. That's when we discovered it's about whatever mind, imagination, talent and inclination can produce, but this time with the subject changed.
In February, it was all about Kira. Now it's March, and Touta Matsuda gets his moment in the spotlight.
What have you got for me, you amazing people? We have a brand, new archive to fill.
Call Out for All Things Touta Matsuda from Death Note
There's more about that on the Death Note Month of... homepage, and the various ways in which content might be added is on the submissions page.
Of particular interest are essays, images, opinion pieces, whatever, which tell us something we may not have realised about Death Note's Matsuda. A nuance in his name; a tell in the way he acts, dresses, speaks; a facet in his plot-line or history, which you'll only know if you have some obscure insight; or a detail of his characterisation which skips the masses by.
Because most people seeing Matsuda's event coming up were more than a little disdaining - what do you want a Month of a Matsuda for? He's nondescript. He doesn't do anything!
No, only shoot Kira and denounce Near. So, what have you got to tell them they're wrong? Or do you agree? Write that instead.
As usual, we'd love to hear from Death Note fan artists, writers and cosplayers. You each have your own page, with a questionnaire apiece, regardless of whether you do or don't cosplay Touta. Or simply send us a photograph, gallery link or email of your Matsuda work, if you want to participate, but not bother with the sharing of secrets.
We'll post them roughly as they come in. The last day for items to appear is March 31st 2016.
See how organised we are this month? All the lessons learned, even if we are a bit late.
And on That Note...
Also there is a slight backlog in Matti responding to emails etc, because of said real life inconsiderately intruding. Thank you for your patience and all that. No-one will have been forgotten, though again it may be early next week before anyone answers.
But you'll be busy anyway, writing your Matsuda stuff.
