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 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 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.

3.0 out of 5 stars 3 & 1/2 stars. Here's why: November 24, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
**Contains NO story spoilers.**
--This review is for Death Note vol. 7.
My husband and I have loved watching this series, and have impulsively bought the next dvd, and then the next dvd, without caring how much money we had left in our bank account because this show was so addicting... and we are finally caught up waiting for December 30th for the next volume. Hard to wait! We went through the available dvd's really fast.
It's a great series, but it has dipped on this volume... Let me explain.

I browsed through the other reviews and was absolutely stunned that NO reviewer has mentioned, (or maybe they all didn't notice?), the one main thing that jostled my like for this late turn of events on this volume 7: On the second to last episode, AND including the last episode on this dvd, the animation is quite different to me. And I happen to -hate- it. And my husband has noticed the difference in the animation as well. It's really hard to explain how it has changed. And I would call it a subtle change since it seems no once else has noticed it. So, why should I be so bugged? Because. it. is. different. to. me., it's. not. the. same., and I don't like the change. So, in my anger on this fact, I would say that it looks cheaper. It's almost as if the main animating company didn't have enough time to finish animating the rest of this set of episodes, and hired out for someone who is not as good and it was just quickly pumped out and uncared for. That is a theory of ours, not a fact. It's just what it seems like. And I would say that it looks like the same bozos who animated that old G.I. Joe cartoon from the 80's got the green light to animate the last two episodes on this volume. =A joke, not a fact. And please heaven forbid that the animation remains this way!

Help!!! Please!!!!
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.

Can anyone tell me...
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.
