Its probably a stupid queston but can't fin it in the FAQ, what do you mean by sprite background?

I'm pretty sure it means the background of the image must be transparent, not a block colour (usually white)

Writes: Teru Mikami Comes to our meeting with the wrong notebook, writes everybody's name except kira. Kira confesses and gets arrested, kills himself with his pen.

"The human whose name is written in this note shall die."
