Anyone seen the new English one?
Holy cow, whats with the new death metal opening  ???

That one joke was funny though.

Misa: I couldn't live in a world without Light!
L: Yes, that would be very dark

:D

That bit did make me smile.

I dislike the new music at the beginning and end, though.

Yeah this episode did make me giggle a bit, but the op and end song was a tad too much :P. Other than that I consider this episode in the series as a filler ::).
Kid: Oh wow I'm being deflowered by a grown woman!
Mother: By the way I'm your mother
Kid: OH GOD NO

EDIT: That's where it becomes rape if you were wondering.

Well, it's over.  The english dubber version just finished today.  Anyone else follow it all the way through?  What'd you think?

Hmmm, hasn't quite finished over here just yet.
Think I'm on the second to last episode, and for what it's worth the series was amazing.

I definitely have to give kudos to the story directors of the series, very well done.

The last one airs tonight.

I think I know how it ends though. It was a good series.

From what I heard the English version is better than the Japaneese because the actor doing Light's voice puts alot more emotion into his voice.

Anyway, I thought the last episode as a whole was pretty good, but the very ending was somewhat disappointing.  I disliked how it deviated from the origional manga (which I stumbled upon a week or so ago).  I just don't think light should have gone as quietly as he did at the very end.  Ryuk's ending dialouge should have been said to him, not off in the distance.

Also, epilouge.  You can't end a series like that without an epilouge.

Yes Brad Swaile has a way more dramatic tone compared to the jap dub.
He does a marvelous job at Light, which proves the Viz's pressure to find good voice actors.

As for the ending it was phenomenal, the tone, the plot outline, the epilogue, character actions everything was great. I'm not going to spoil it as I wish not to ruin it for others but it's worth the watch.

I have to say when I have the opprotunity I'm definitely buying the series on DVD.
Worth the money and for special order you can get an honorary deathnote copy ^_^

I think I liked the voice actor of L the best in the series. That guy was great.
It was on par of the voice actors in the Ender's game audio book.

(I know that's random, but it's true)

[Edit]

Just saw the last one. Your right, the English voice actor of Light is a lot better.

It didn't end as I had wished, but nonetheless the final episode was absolutely brilliant.

Yeah L's voice was well done too.

And Brad's was magnificent.
If anyones a Gundam geek you will notice that Brad voices Amuro Ray from Gundam 0079 and Complation movie Chars Counter attack.

Just a fun fact for all :D
Have to say Brad really but the dramatics in well, made the real psychopathic character come out really well. I was very pleased with his performance.

It didn't end as I had wished, but nonetheless the final episode was absolutely brilliant.

To get the leverage on American TV you could have watched it in Japanese dubb online if you hda wished to Brandon. Sort of like how Bleach is blisteringly ahead of the US in comparison to where we are now, but that's just my thoughts.

Why would I want to watch fansubs when I'm content waiting for the allotted time slot each Saturday?

I prefer to only watch TV on the internet if I've missed something or can't see it otherwise.

I thought the ending was lacking, but that might be because I read through the manga first.  They were exactly the same right up until Light started freaking out.  I'm going to spoiler it in case anyone wants to read it for themselves.

When Light calls out to Mikami to kill everyone after getting shot, Mikami doesn't kill himself.  Instead, he freezes for a moment before screaming at Light that he can't be god because his plan failed (or something like that, it's been awhile).  Then Near says that he won't kill Light, just lock him up in a place where he'll never see day light or hear another human voice for the rest of his life.  Light continues calling for help from people who aren't there before spotting Ryuk and crawling towards him.  He pleads to Ryuk to use the notebook, and Ryuk agrees and starts writing.  He then says the same thing that he does in the anime, that he isn't going to wait around for Light to die on his own.

There's a flashback to when Ryuk first appeared, when he was explaining the rules of the Deathnote.  Just after he explains that the user can't go to heaven or hell, it's revealed that Light immediately said "Because there's no such places right?"  It is revealed that this is the case and that humans don't last beyond this world.

Back to present, Light starts pleading with Ryuk, screaming that he doesn't want to stop existing.  Ryuk explains that it's already been written.

Then it shows a year later.  The Japanese Kira investigation squad has been gathered by Near to help with a renegade drug lord he's been after.  In their conversation it is revealed that Mikami killed himself in prison shortly after being locked up, and someone speculates that Near may have written his name just before burning the note to ensure it was real.  It is not certain if this is the case.  It is also revealed that crime reached record highs a few months after the killings stopped, but have now stabilized to pre-Kira levels.  Kira's followers insist that their god is still alive and that he will return to cleanse the world again after he is done resting.

The final page shows an isolated mountain range with a winding trail of lights leading to the peak.  As the view shifts closer each light becomes a figure carrying a candle.  It shifts closer to the peak and shows a single cloaked figure standing at the highest point.  A final view inside the cloak's hood reveals that Misa has become the leader of Kira's cult.

End of DeathNote.
Nefarious?  Nearly.  Ne’er-do-well?  Never!  Neither nearly names this narrator.  Naive and knowledgeable, notorious and inscrutable, this nascent Nero is known naturally as Neoadept.
