  • Different but still good
    Though it differs to the manga and anime it was still thouroughly enjoyable, the characters have their differences but are still just as lovable! I really enjoyed watching this and would definitely recommend it. I binge watched it in two sittings, to be honest, I didn't want to stop watching

  • Grows into a stunner
    At first the Drama is somewhat bland the vast differences between the Anime and the Drama can be a bit off putting, but after a few episodes you stop caring about the difference completely and just get sucked in.

    The actor's are surprisingly talented and the later episodes are simply jaw dropping, unlike the anime where Light starts off as a super genius with a penchant for self worship. The ...

    Full of surprises and plot twists
    Before I start this review, I want to make it clear that i've never seen the original Anime and this is my first time watching a J-Drama (or whatever the correct term is), so bare in mind that I am writing this from a noobies perspective.

    The basic plot for those who don't know is about a guy called Light who picks up a book that a daemon dropped and he discovers that he can kill people by ...

    The view from a diehard Death Note fan.
    So, to make this short. I am a hardcore Death Note fan of the original anime when it was aired in Japan back in 2006. I later read all the manga's and I own them all in physical form, both manga and anime.

    A New Take On A Classic Story

    I've been a fan of Death Note for a while now, I 1st watched it a long time ago, and since then had re-watched the anime and another live-action adaptation multiple times. Honestly the Anime was better than the previous live-action adaptation.

    However ...

  • From the Point-of-View of a First Time 'Death Note' Watcher
    Unlike many others who are avid fans, I vaguely remember watching the original Death Note series a couple of years ago. I remember some of the events from the first episode of this new series, but none of it caught my attention too much. But now I've seen this live-action adaptation.

    I have nothing to base the character portrayals on from the original series or manga, but I really enjoyed ...
