More amazing is that the anime version manages to keep the manga's mind games nearly whole. Unlike most people, I find the characters of L's successors, Mello, and especially Near, not to mention the background of all three young men being orphans raised in a home full of brilliant children for the express purpose of picking certain of them for duties such as L, aka the Whammy House, to be much more interesting. Particularly in the fact of their different approaches from L, their similarities and drive to beat each other to avenging L and to end the reign of Kira - all while Mello does so with a dark, passionate drive and seeming hatred of Near and his passive, painstaking method. In a way seeing how Mello and Near interact gives you more of a perspective of L's background than watching L himself for a majority of the series.
Basically, if you've made it this far through my review I'm surprised you haven't already hit the 'One-Click' buy button. This is the point of the anime where you go from the long, steady, plodding pace of Death Note to the beginning of the brawling, psychotic stampede to the end of the series.
The Bad Part: It technically ended with the resolution at the end of the first "season". You can tell what part I'm talking about when you see it. Then because the fans loved it so much and they pressured him, he went about making a second "season". Think of it really being two books in the set. The second set of episodes takes some episodes to really get along. He had to take it slow to keep the human reactions in the show realistic as opposed to them "magically" figuring somthing out or slipping up. So that's it's only real downside.
There is one other part I don't particularly care for, but I can't say because it's a spoiler. If you enjoy the series, you'll know instantly what part I mean when you see it. ;)

everything is perfect. Product arrived in a short time not damaged; it is exactly as described. The package was very accuratedPublished on June 18, 2012 by phenomenup
Did anyone else find it extremely ironic that a huge picture of Near graces the top of the packaging for the Mello figurine? It's easily 3 times as large as poor Mello. Read morePublished on October 15, 2009 by Ashley Crutchfield

I'm sorry to see nobody has posted a reply. Usually, Best Buy is very accurate on how many episodes and what episodes are on each disc, when it comes to anime. However, I'm guessing that one of the dvds will have five episodes, that is if it is true that there will be 9 volumes.

Hopefully youve received your dvds in the mail, and youve found out that its both English Dub and japanese language with English subtitles....either one, you can watch it either way. So ya. Its pretty cool. I love bilingual anime dvds. Best of both worlds.
