Death Note - The Complete Series

I`ve been a fan of Death Note for only a few months now, but I knew that this box-set was a must have. It didn`t disappoint : the special features gave an interesting insight into the making of the show, it has both English and Japanese dubs, which is good for those who prefer one over the other, and the `booklet` with the illustrations was another nice touch. (^ w ^) If you`re a die-hard fan of this anime, I`d recommend this boxset. It`s a unique, thrilling anime with intriguing characters and a gripping plot, which keeps you guessing and wondering, right up until the end! (Also, Light FTW! ;D )Report this review
This show has such a simple premise; a student finds a notebook and discovers that if he writes a person's name in it, they will die. Fortunately there are rules to the deathnote and these are fully exploited over the course of the show. What makes the show fun is that the lead character is essentially the villain yet you can't help but admire his intelligence and ingenuity throughout (it's a bit like an animated "Dexter" at times). When L, the super detective gets involved the show gets really interested as the two characters get locked into an intense battle of wits that will constantly have you saying "I'll just watch one more episode". The only thing stopping this from getting a perfect score is the lousy middle arc with the amnesia, 2nd deathnote holder, and the death of a favourite chracter. Fortunately the first and final arc are strong enough to overlook the middle arc though and the penultimate episide has one of the best cliffhangers ever. An anime show you can confidently give to friends.Report this review
