Ohk, Now anybody that knows anything at all about anime has heard of deathnote, It has a ridiculously large fan base most of them being diehard L fan girls >< .
Haha, Anyway so although I watched Death Note about 2 years ago I thought it might be a good idea to review such a big series to get this newly anime dedicated blog rolling.
Death Note is a 37 episode series and as any well known shonen series it started in Shonen Jump’s weekly magazine as the manga written by Tsugumi Ohba. The series focuses around a Super Natural notebook found by a young university student by the name of Light Yagami, the notebook was dropped by a shinigami looking for some entertainment.
Lights father happens to be the chief of police and thats where light gets his firm sense of justice from and he hates the world that is now filled with crime. Light opens the notebook and finds out that it has the ability to kill anyone that is written on its pages, But of course there is a set of rules that helps the series advance in plot and create a few interesting twists.
Light starts killing the criminals with the extreme power that he now posses’s but along comes a world famous really rich and rather weird detective. His name is unknown to most and goes by the alias of L and his mission is to track down Light and make him pay for killing all the criminals.
Did I happen to mention that both of them are genius’s that come up with very precise plans to out do the other in the on-going game of cat and mouse. Death Note is different from most other shonen series because there is practically no fighting action, Its got a plot line that lures you in with its very intriguing mysteries.
Death Note all though some may some is over rated is definitely a series that is worth checking out, even for people that only like the more action type anime its still worth a look. There is a midway point that takes the series on a rather sharp turn and the plot develops rather well from that point on.
Funimation has made a rather bearable dub for all the animaniac’s that enjoy getting their dose of anime in english and 3 live action movies are released. Therefore if I were you I would go buy the series or if your broke at least go rent it out.
