    Death Note Complete Series And OVA — Collector's Edition

    Death Note has succeeded where many animes falter, transcending the line between the mainstream and the obscure.

    Originally conceived as a Japanese manga, like so many before it, Death Note was adapted into an anime.

    Following the protagonist, Light Yagami, the series posed a creative concept involving a supernatural notebook called the ‘Death Note’. Using its power Light could kill anyone with the stroke of pencil, simply writing their name and watching them fall, no matter where they were around the world.

    Over the course of 37 episodes, anime lovers were able to witness the many twists and turns across its engrossing narrative.

    And so, of all the anime gifts available, the Death Note Complete Series Box Set is guaranteed to make a killing — pun very much intended.
