sigh. Do we really need another Death Note thread? This is going to turn into another Naruto/Bleach series.

I got into the series when the manga was still being written. When I first read it, I really enjoyed it: the art was nice and the plot kept me entertained (except for the whole Yotsuba group arc - that just bored the hell out of me). I was really excited when I heard there was going to be an anime. The movies..eh. The OSTs are amazing, though. & I love the BB novel.

While I enjoyed the series initially, fandom has gone and completely ruined it for me. But I still love my sexy, sexy Ryuk~ :3

Note: When I use the word "you" I'm not addressing anyone in particular, I'm just speaking generally.

You shouldn't believe what people say so easily. When people say "this is the best anime in the world" it shouldn't be take to it's literal meaning. To me, it just means it is an anime worth watching. And I do agree that Death Note is worth it. From all the anime I've seen, I haven't encountered a story like the one in Death Note so I feel it's worth, at the very least, a small look.

People tend to exaggerate, especially younger anime watchers so is it really such a surprise to hear the phrase"best anime in the world"? ... Also, the word "smart" is a generally used term which people like to use. I think people are just subtitling the word "smart" for the word "cunning"--which is probably a more proper word to use. Smart seems to denote having a lot of "book-smarts" but the type of "smart" displayed by Light and L is probably more related to cunning and deception--like two masters of chess battling each other.

Its Overrated because of the idiotic fans who think that its the best anime on the planet cause its more "mature" than Naruto/Bleach.

DN is a good anime. It was first Popular among the college students here then once it reached the high school and lower level fandom, it became hyped and overrated. Seriously High School take anything good and make it shitty. Take Facebook for example.

Overrated means its somthing you DON'T like that everyone else likes. No one else seems to get this.

Anime wasn't made to please. Mainstream = Money for the companies.
The more we buy, the more mainstreat it gets. Its going to be popular then fade away....simple as that

Why would FANS ruin a series for you..? I personaly, think early fans of a series don't want more people to know about a series, because it makes htem feel more proud about themselves.

Anime is made for profit. NOT to please you people on weather or not it goes mainstream.

Fans ruin series cause they keep on claiming how good the anime is and they are cool because they watch so and so. The more experienced people are like STFU just watch the damn thing without praising it like its a religion or something. Theres a reason everyone hates Narutards.

DN is a good series (until L died at least) and still is. Now if people will just shut up about it being like the best anime they've seen.

........? People like a series, no need to hate on them for that. They LIKE a show. in their OPINION they think its the best.

How could someones simple OPINION ruin a show for you.

if an opinion is repeated over and over, it can get annoying. that's how many people started to stop caring about mainstream stuff like naruto and Inuyasha

You need to read what I actually said and not just the general overview of it. I mean the fans PRAISE the anime like its the best thing that they've ever seen. Especially kids in the 12-15 age range. And a) they make retarded posts on forums like this thinking they are the only one that have seen it and need to tell the whole world about it. or b) they provoke the older audience who actually UNDERSTANDS the inner plot of the anime instead of the general outline of Kira killing people with a notebook.

And besides, less noticed animes are less likely to be lisenced. So thats another plus.

I'm pretty sure DN has gone the way or Inuyasha and Naruto because the other day in the mall i some some tiny emo kid with an actually Death Note and a pulled it out of his Death Note messenger bag. So i will assume Hot Topic is now Selling DN merch.

ah crap, of course Hot Topic would pick up on something like that. DN is like emo person's god. Oh well, Hot Topic is an interesting place to begin with.
