So hey, have any of your read the Death Note manga?
I was wondering if it had any extra bits than the anime. It's about 100-odd chapters long and don't really feel like reading it if it's going to be exactly the same XD
I'll read it sometime though, I'm sure. Just looking for an incentive to get me reading it.

Anyway, discuss !

Contrary to the movies, the anime series closely follows the original storyline of the first seven volumes of the manga (L's arc) then rushes significantly through N's arc by accentuating many action scenes and skipping monologues or long discussions between characters described in the final 5 volumes of the manga series. There are also a few changes on the character designs, adapted by Masaru Kitao, and the order of facts, as well as a few additional scenes not featured in the original manga. It is also set in the year 2007, instead of starting at the year 2003.

I've never read the manga before, but I think I'll give it a try since it seems that N's arc is better in the manga then in the anime. ^^

:OOO They sound amazing. I'm going to try and buy the anime series off eBay tomorrow. :3
I've found a seller selling them off for abouts £20. n_n
The movies are extremely cheap on there too.
About £15 for both Death Note movies.
I'm aware they might be copies but tbh, as long as the movie is watchable I couldn't care less.
