But death not is so unique that it's hard to fine one just like it.

Code Geass has similarities in its plot (controlling people with a mysterious power, creating a better world, etc.), so you may want to check that out.
Of course, I think Crunchyroll only has season 1.

Yeah I would say code geass might have the most similarities. Especially egotistical protagonists and their evilly insane laughs. Bloody entertaining.

First of all, welcome to CrunchyRoll. Second, there is a stickied thread for anime recommendation requests like this here: http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-7173/recommend-me-an-anime-read-first-post

If you can give some more details about what you specifically liked about Death Note and what you're looking for in another anime then you'll end up with better recommendations.

However it is true that Code Geass is considered to be the closest thing to Death Note. I didn't think it was as good as Death Note.

no because there are other animes out there with a book that can kill you by writing down a name and picturing a face.........
