Ever wish that all the criminals in this world deserve no second chance?

Ever wish that there is something that can make that particular wish of yours come true?

The answer is Death Note.

Death Note is one of the best anime that was aired last year,along with Code Geass,Gurren Lagaan and Claymore.It is unique,it is not your typical shounen anime.It actually makes you think about the morality of killing of criminals,and whether the deserve getting second chance and lastly,does mankind has the authority to act as God.

Light Yagami is just a normal intelligent teenager until he found a book,a book that will change his life forever.Throughout the series,one may find themselves questioning whether Light should be applauded for what he did,as those deserve to die for the crimes they did may got away with the help of lawyers and the inefficiency of the law.

At first,one may argue that what Light did is noble and righteous,however it is shown clearer as the series progresses that Light is getting more and more obsessed with what he is doing.He may be intelligent,but he is also arrogant.And that arrogance eventually led him to his dead end.

Along the series of course,Light would find himself having to face numerous people who wanted to catch him.I would say despite the presence of Mello and Near,i still think L is his best "rival"..If only Light doesn't involve himself into something like this,both of them can be good friends.

This series,despite the good plot,still had its flaws.It lack character development,as for a 37 episode anime series,the number of characters exceeded what it should have been.As a result,it lack explanation on the character's background.


One of the things that i like about Death Note is it has many awesome climaxes that makes you want more.Death Note is excellent at the beginning,but the Yotsuba arc really almost ruined it.The climaxes weren't that interesting anymore,and it is from there it went downhill.But luckily,the series pick up again after arc ended.L should have stay in the anime,as his interaction with Light is what amused me and captivated me.

MADHOUSE did an excellent job with the animation.The scene during Naomi's last moments are awesome,with the snow falling over the place.The music is haunting as well,and it fits the show nicely.I am just so glad that it is not GONZO that pick this series up,as the manga is a rare gem and it shouldn't be destroyed by the hands of GONZO.

Death Note may not be the BEST,but nevertheless,it is still good and worth watching.

yeah totally death note does show us the reality on killing moreover giving criminals a second chances true they could have derverse that second chance but, the world needs to be shown that people like that can not be living like this in out world. Light shown truth into what he was doing but he was young and powerful and that ended up to his death. Overall this short anime really did reveal if not reminded everyone else that in our world have people making if unsafe for us. So to you anime watchers that may read the comments ask yourself after watching and finishing your anime the questions that you may kept on asking through out the beginning cause anime does teach quite alot believe it or not. Thanks for creating Death Note

Death note is basically about a strategy game. It is a fresh anime as it employs more "brain" then "brawn". But this show gets abit boring as more chess players are introduced into their little game of forcing each other to reveal their identities. It might be surprising to you that normal events and reaction may, consquently, cause others to perceive of your actions. But around half of the episodes it starts to get boring. That's my veiwpoint anyway.

I agree,this is one anime/manga to look out for.Even though the story itself may be a little too much,it's a really enjoying watch.It's not the typical anime where good vs bad and the good guy wins.It really lets us see the world through other ppl's viewpoint.It's an anime which really requires viewers to actually think.Still,it really lacked character development though.

Death Note. Very enjoyable. It's a suspense thing for me, but after L died, I stopped watching. As soon as I saw Mello, he disgusted me (sorry any Mello fans). I love Near and L though, I have a bit of Mikami in me as well.

Light is a bit too power hungry, I think. But he's still enjoyable. Ryuuk, ahhh, good times. L is love. And the rest of the investigation team isn't in depth enough.
