Death Note
« on: January 08, 2008, 11:44:15 am »
Warning: this is an anime, but I think non-anime fans will enjoy it. Keep reading

Ok, I'm always the last one to hear about new Anime, but this series is so good that I have to make a topic about it.

I was watching AMV Hell 4, and I saw what looked like the same anime pop up over and over. I look through the credits, and sure enough "Death Note" was all over it.

So I decided to watch it and see what it was about.
Holy cow, it turned out to be one of the best animes I have ever seen.

The premise is that the main character (Light) finds a notebook if a persons name is written in it, they will die (It's a little more complicated that that, but whatever)

Basically it turns into a battle of wits between Light and the guy trying to capture him: "L"
This anime feels like watching a chess match in terms of strategy, and intellect.

Whats also interesting is that you see the majority of the anime from the bad guys viewpoint (who has a comic relief "side kick")

If you want to see the show it's on cartoon network adult swim, but the next episode is episode 14.
Here's the 1st 11 episodes if you wanted to take a look:

Death Note

(Sorry if this post didn't make sense. I tried my best, but I've been up all night)

I've seen it all when it came out in Japan (with english subtitles), it's the most awesome anime I've ever seen - Short and cool :P

Lol, keep watching, the subject of finding out who L is gets interesting.

And on that subject, L is so freaking cool.

How far are you into it?

I saw about 4 consecutive episodes near the beginning, then missed them and saw a few later.

They're just too few and far between.

Just go watch them on that web page I posted. They have the 1st 11 in English, but the whole series is on there if you wanted to watch the Japanese sub version.

It's the only anime I watch.

It's very good, if only because it was made after the manga was complete, as opposed to as it was written, which leads to 22 minute episodes being designed around 10 pages of material.

I've seen all the episodes.The first 20 episodes are pretty good but after the 22, the show decreases in imagination.

The uncanny likeness is astonishing... ;D
On a side note the pics fine if you ask me, they shouldn't have complained in the first place.
I guessing because of the cat right?
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.

I've seen a few episodes, didn't really get them.

The guy with the dark blue hair and wide eyes seems to like kidnapping people and being a creeper, though.
The best person ever.  She should have won the Peace Prize.

What? No full control over children? You do realize that some of us have particular plans for those children.
