Collaboration

Japanese are good at making creative collaboration between products to make a bigger noise and sales. So, how can they miss this hottest song!! 

On 29 October 2016, the latest sequel of the popular movie series Death Note came out. If you are familiar with this series or the original comics, you must be able to recall the Death God Ryuk from this interesting movie.
