I had heard a lot about this manga and even seen the movie. The actual manga is far better, with beautiful artwork and deeper look into the characters.
A bored Shinigami wants to spice up his acquired years of 'the same old thing, day in, day out' of his own world by acquiring a second Death Note and dropping it within the human world, in Japan.
A bored and frustrated, but brilliant student, named Light Yagami acquires this dropped note book and begins a quest to rid the world of low-lifes, or even those who stand in the way of his carefully considered selfish plans.
Volume 1 concerns itself mainly on Light's experimentation on how the Death Note works and how much he can stretch its abilities to fulfill his overall plan....Continua
This novel was a bit darker than I had originally thought it would be. The story was very interesting and I like seeing how the character of Light is not exactly good nor evil. There are interesting choices made and I like how they are playing out. This is definitely more for older teens and adults. A good story that I can't wait to read more of in the next volumes....Continua
My new favorite Manga. It has everything that I love in a good story, and spectacularly drawn characters. Mystery, violence, and many fantasy elements are combined, making this series stand out. Read it, watch the anime, and you'll love it too....Continua
