Death Note

Recommended Posts

Light Yagami is a brilliant, but bored, high school student who resents the crime and corruption in the world. His life undergoes a drastic change when he discovers a mysterious notebook, known as the "Death Note", lying on the ground in the year 2003. The Death Note's instructions claim that, if a human's name is written within it, that person shall die. Light is initially skeptical of the Death Note's authenticity, believing it is just a prank. However, after experimenting with it and killing two criminals, Light is forced to admit the Death Note is real. After meeting with the true owner of the Death Note, a Shinigami named Ryuk, Light seeks to become "the God of the new world" by passing his judgement on criminals.

Soon, the number of inexplicable deaths of reported criminals catches the attention of the International Police Organization and a mysterious detective known only as "L". L quickly learns that the serial killer, dubbed by the public as "Kira"(derived from the Japanese pronunciation of the English word "Killer"), is located in Japan. L also concludes that Kira can kill people without laying a finger on them. Light realizes that L will be his greatest nemesis, and a race to prove mental superiority between the two begins.

If the anime turns out like the manga it will be fantastic for the first half and then it will start to get really mediocre after that part. I love it up to a point (even if the Naomi Misora thing will ALWAYS be a squick), but after a while stuff goes down that really sort of bites.

I read the manga in June, it was amazing. Still one of my top favorites. Volumes 1-6 are amazing. 7-11 are kinda lackluster, but it picks up again for the finale in volume 12.

I saw the first movie, it was pretty good.

I've also been watching the anime since early November, it's one of my favorite shows. I love it.
