    I first caught "DEATH NOTE" on television via the Cartoon Network. I've heard so many impressive things in regards to the storyline and also saw the series featured on NPR. To get the critical acclaim it had received worldwide, I realized that this series must be special and had to check it out for myself. Needless to say, I absolutely loved the series.

    "DEATH NOTE" is a 37-episode TV series that was created by Studio Madhouse and featured on Japanese television in 2006-2007 and featured in the US in 2007-2008. The series has spawned a popular manga series, a novel, three live action films and has captured the attention of anime and non-anime fans worldwide.

    The series focuses on the character of a very smart high school student named Light Yagami. Bored with his life, he comes across the "Death Note" that has special instructions that if one was to write their names on the Death Note, the person would die. They would die of a heart attack if there were no instructions on how the person is to die. Or die the way the person possessing the Death Note wrote down.

    The Death Note is from a Shinigami (death god) named Ryuk who seems to be bored in his own world and thus starts to enjoy how a person like Light starts to use the Death Note.

    For Light (who goes by the name Kira), starts out using the Death Note by writing the names of criminals. He starts to win supporters due to his ideology of creating a new world without these criminals. But with so many deaths occurring, the police and the International community begin to fear this serial killer. And along the way, Light is suspected by the police as a person of interest (a person who could be "Kira") and then Light starts to use his Death Note on those who are onto him.

    Just like the release of the first season, Death Note season 2 box set contains every episode of the show's final run.

    Plot-wise, Death Note is just as strong with the best animation I've ever seen in anime (or any show for that matter). The story this time isn't as compelling as season 1 (Near is nowhere "near" as interesting as L and no one else is very likeable), but the show keeps you hooked and wraps things up in a very satisfying conclusion.

    Instead of the extras posted just on individual discs, this DVD set comes with a bonus disc which contains the makings-of and interviews with the original Japanese cast and creaters. To me this gave the buyer an equally compelling reason to purchase this DVD set even though it's a few episodes shorter than first season. I can't say whether this set is still worth owning if you already have the individual volumes, but if you don't it's more than worth the $$$.

    Like I said, if you're an anime buff and looking for something intriguing (and mature) this show is NOT TO BE MISSED!

    This is one of those animes that people who have never seen an anime before may fall in love with. The conclusion and climax to this series is one of the most intense anime moments I've yet to experience. Luckily the voice acting in both the English and Japanese dubs is spot on. Some of my friends have stated that they were annoyed by Light's voice over time, but I did not share the same experience. If you are looking at this, you've probably already seen the first part so you know what you are getting into. There is too much I would spoil by trying to summarize the plot on this set.

    I found it incredibly satisfying, yet heartbreaking.
