How long can you manipulate a person with a Death Note?

If you write die of disease with a specific disease's name and the person's time of death, there must be a sufficient amount of time for the disease to progress. If the set time is too tight, the victim will die of a heart attack after 6 minutes and 40 seconds after completing the Death Note.

Let's say Y has a Death Note. He also has Shinigami Eyes, and because he's a genius he can read in Shinigami time. So he wants to kill Z.

He writes:

Z, bradykardie, dies of bradykardie at 11:59 on this date: 25.07.2062. Till he dies, he will always do whatever the person he knows as A tells him to do.

(Yes, Z is destined to die at the mentioned date.)

(A won't die, since he already wrote his own name in his Death Note.)

Would this work?

• Don't forget about the 23 day rule, mentioned right after the section you quoted. Jan 3, 2015 at 22:56
• @キルア The 23 day rule only counts when you don't write the name of a disease. Jan 3, 2015 at 23:05
• @AnonymUser incorrect, it counts for anything. this answer goes into detail about the 23-day rule using examples which aren't diseases Jan 5, 2015 at 21:02
• @Memor-X Actually, chck the wiki. Rule 28 "If you write die of disease like before with a specific disease's name, but without a specific time, if it takes more than 24 days for the human to die the 23 day rule will not take effect and the human will die at an adequate time depending on the disease."
