So my friends have raged on and on about how incredible the Death Note manga is, and now there's an anime being produced. Only one episode is out, and my friends say its incredible. I've downloaded it but haven't watched it yet.

So, is Death Note really good? Any fans I guess?

I think I've heard of this...isn't this the one where one of the main character's name is "L"? Or something like that?

His name is Light. His partner is a death dude.

Basically, I read the manga and the storyline seem so predictable now. I gave up after seeing a preview of the manga so I don't bother watching a show like this...

It is about a guy named Light who happened to be in school and found a notebook at the playground that day. He went over there and check it out, only to see that it was a special kind of notebook. He took and saw the death god (whatever his name is) and they yakked about something. The book can kill anyone as long as you provided their full name and you must picture of that person you want to see die.

Big whoop.

I agree that the plot isn't that great, but from the first episode, the character development seemed promising. I also liked the music and the scenery a lot.

I've seen the first two episodes already and it actually seems pretty good. The basic story line might be a bit predictable, but what really appeals to me is the war of minds that will for on between Light and L. Both of them incredibly intelligents and both of them thinking they are judgment. I really want to see how they are going to try and out smart eachother.

I'm more excited about the movie that came out with Tatsuya Fujiwara playing Light.

The manga's not bad, and I still actually need to see the anime, but yeah, the movie seems more fascinating. And they already made the sequel.

The story isnt all about killing people using the Death Note. The first part is where the police start to investigate who is doing (although why would anyone suspect that Light was doing it in the first place exactly? Its not like anyone was near the criminals when they died that did anything to them...) I think it starts to delve down further since Light finds other people who see Shinigami or something. Then I think there is a point where this one guy is gay for Light or something, but im not sure. I just know the plot is so large you basically need to read all of it, then get a PHD on Death Note. Either that or you just give up your life and read it down to the very last letter...

Anyway, it seems interesting enough. I dont really like the art style though, seems to weird for my taste. I think it has something to do with the fact they never say if Light is sane or insane, or if he is good or evil

I'm addicted.

I haven't watched any anime for a long time. And this drew me back into it. I saw an ep on Adult Swim and was intrigued. It takes a lot for me to even pay attention to a dubbed anime, but Death Note captured me.

I'm reading the manga and watching the subbed anime episodes. I keep flip flopping between the two. I think the anime is better now that I think about it. The animation is beautiful and the music they use is good. The voice acting is good as well.

There are plot twists galore and it is never predictable. I highly recommend it.

Death Note was AMAZING, I watched all of it subtitled.

Are they doing a good job with the dubbing then?

I saw only the "Next Episode..." thing on a dubbed episode. I wasn't a fan of Light's voice.

I finished this series subtitled a long time ago, it was really good. I hadn't even realized the Death Note dub had made it's way around until recently.

Yup, it replaced Bleach on Adult Swim.

I looked at the voices, there not all that amazing. But they didn't ruin it like they did Bleach.

I read like the first book of Death Note but it was one of the weirdest anime series I've ever read so I didn't read anymore.

I don't recall the voices. I only saw the end of one dubbed episode. They're not ear splitting. But they're not amazing.

I'm surprised I didn't check this out earlier.

Of course, since "weird" never translates to "good".

I think it's stunning. It's plot unlike any that I've seen.
Light Yagami finds a notebook, meets Shinigami named "Ryuk". Anyone whose name he writes in it will die, so Light decides to kill off all the criminals, making the world peaceful (so he can rule over it, of course).

Also, wanna know something? I don't give a fuck about the voices, unless they are REALLY god-awful. I live in America. I don't wanna read while watching anime. I wanna hear what they're saying and understand it. Subtitled anime is just plain retarded at times.

Well I finished watching it.

It was really good. One of my favorite series for sure. I do feel it went a little downhill after episode 25 (which is my favorite)

The finale was done well. I'm really interested in watching the Live Action movies now.

Bumpage ...

I'm downloading this and plan on actually watching it again. I remember liking it a lot and it seems like something I'll really like.

I hear the main characters between this and Code Geass are very alike, and Code Geass just owns.

Never owned Code Geass but this anime doesn't fail to deliver. It's got so many twists and keeps you guessing. Their are very minor disappointments, but the series still redeems itself.
