Editorial Reviews

As the macabre fantasy Death Note begins building to its climax, the story grows increasingly complex. Although he agrees to release Light and Misa from prison, L still believes they are the murderers Kira I and Kira II. To ensure Light does nothing without his knowledge, L has them handcuffed together, like Tony Curtis and Sidney Poitier in The Defiant Ones. Misa's notebook has fallen into the hands of the board of the Yotsuba Corporation, who are using the attendant Shinigami (god of death) to eliminate businessmen whose interests clash with theirs. Light, who only used the notebook's powers to kill criminals, is appalled at these cold-blooded murders. He and his father want to arrest the board members, but L is more interested in capturing Kira. The tensions between their approaches, interests, and suspicions lead L and Light to clash and even punch each other out. The Limited Edition comes with a collectible figure of Misa. (Rated Teen+ Older Teen, suitable for ages 15 and older: grotesque imagery, violence, violence against women, tobacco use) --Charles Solomon

Product Description

After fifty days of confinement, the killings continue, and Light and Misa are released, only to face the ride of their lives with a seemingly crazed Soichiro. Then Light rejoins L in the investigation and notices a strange connection between the recent Kira murders and a business outfit called the Yotsuba Group. Misa agrees to pose as the Yotsuba Group's spokesperson, with the eager Matsuda playing her manager. But Matsuda may be getting himself in too deep when he decides to do a little snooping at the Yotsuba Group's Tokyo headquarters!

This is where the show starts to get even more interesting. We find the character Light continuing to play the role of "god of the new world," ending the lives of the people he deems evil and unworthy of life. Light continues to write names in the Death Note, with the genius detective L hot on his trail. Light stays sharp so that he can eliminate L, keep his grades up, and keep Ryuk from going into withdrawal by feeding him apples. The show begins to start getting much more interesting in Volume 3 with Light entering college and L begins to keep an even closer watch on Light. More importantly, the revelation of another Death God coming to Earth with a second Death Note. The Death God not only gives the second Kira a Death Note, but they also provide a nice pair of Shinigami eyes to the owner allowing them to see everyone's name and lifespan by just looking at their face. What will this mean for Light?

5.0 out of 5 stars Death Note is an anime worth giving a watch December 27, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Death Note is truly a well written and mind thinking anime for people of many ages. Just when one may think you know where the story maybe going there is a twist in the story line. I would also highly suggest the Death Note books.

5.0 out of 5 stars A battle of minds February 18, 2008
Format:Amazon Instant Video
I really enjoy this series. What would you do if you had the power to kill people just by picturing them in your head and then writing their name in a notebook? Would you do it, even if it meant eternal damnation? This is the power given to a high school student who uses it to "create an ideal world". But the laws of man cannot be ignore. A police force stumped calls in the greatest detective of their time, a man known simply as "L". "L" has never failed to solve a case, but can he catch a killer who never has contact with his victims. Can a high school student continue to kill without leaving any evidence? Watch and find out.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Whammy Boys! December 23, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
There is thus far nothing wrong in my world regarding Death Note, including the more recent attempts at beating a dead horse with a stick with the live-action "L-change the WorLd" and the BB murders novel. The only disappointing thing for me was the decision to not include L's successors in the live-action Death Note movies (though there is a vague nod to Near at the end of "L-change the WorLd"). Considering that the original manga is really an extremely convoluted mind-game of chess, where there are more thought bubbles than speech bubbles, it's amazing that they were able to pull off fantastically the first two live action movies albeit in a truncated form.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome May 30, 2009
Format:DVD
Death Note vol.6, Great Quality, I've had no problems in video frame being slow or skipping. The Series itself is clinching, I strongly advise to watch them in order for spoilers are in this one and others. Quite basically what the main plot boils to is that a young boy named Light, picks up a Notebook, whoever name he writes in it with the picture of him/her's face in his mind, dies. He has many people attempting to hunt him down, but only a select few show great difficulty towards his goal. He meet's a few friends to help him along the way, Some are quite normal while others are abit more...out there. If you have never watched anime before this is a great one to start out with.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great way to practice listening to Japanese December 24, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The series is great and a good way to practice listening comprehension with Japanese as well as be entertained. It is a dark series, but for those that like murder mystery, suspense, and horror, it is a great watch.

Since I first saw this on Adultswim I became completely captivated by this new import from Japan. I have bought all the current English dubbed dvds and this series has now become my favorite anime. This series has intrigue, suspense, supernatural elements including horror. A very faithful adaptation of the hit manga series.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best series ever.
Honestly, this is one of the best tv series ever simply because of the mental part of it. There isn't so much action in the sense of people fighting. Read more
