      I'm abashed that there isn't a thread about Death Note, one of the most popular anime of all time. I prefer L over Light, to be honest. Why? Because Light was behaving like a maniac towards the ending. And I hated how he deviated from his initial intentions. He became pure evil. How about you? On which side are you on?

      ahhhh death note, the darker code geass.


      I loved the anime, a lot of their cat and mouse games on this show kept me on the edge of my seat.


      I'm looking forward to the USA live action movie.

      yep me too. Although I heard light yagami's going to be played by a white guy, which frustrates me beyond anything imaginable. Light Yagami should have been depicted by a japanese guy, an asian guy would be tolerable.

      That's cause he got golden hair instead of a darker hair shade. Maybe if he got dark hair, you'd be able to tell he's japanese. The family name Yagami has an asian ring to me. XD

      Oh I see, well I thought it was bizarre the way you put it, but yeah. Light's very much Asian to me.

      Ironic that I find this thread. I just watched the first episode last night and it was not only good but fantastic. This isn't coming from a noob of animes but someone who's seen he's share of great and horrible shows and this one is among the best. Sad thing is that it's really short more of a ova than a anime imo. Either way the first episode was a treat and I'm sure to finish it through.

      Well obviously. I meant it's closer to that term than say a normal anime with 100+ episodes. Just my interpretation of the word really no problem with calling it a anime.

      Lol, for me an anime with more than 30 episodes is an anime, not an ova.

      You're probably right. Though the more popular one's are up in the hundreds. Even if most of it is pointless filler. OVA's aren't usually more than 5 episodes.

      That's true, but I've seen a lot of good 24 episode animes as well.

      I enjoy death note very much~

      My favorite characters are:

      1. L
      2. Kira [Light]
      3. N [Near]
      4. M [Mello, Mihael] (I believe)


      Who are your favorite characters?

      I've seen this like 5-9 Times! :D and i never get bored of it.

      Okay, well.. I've stopped reading the first post after the first sentence.
      There are spoilers and I've just started watching the anime, ;)

      So far, the episodes are going great. I've seen 3 so far and they surely do not disappoint. I've very excited to watch the next later tonight, :)

      I don't know much about anime and manga but I think I've seen that film, and the sequel. Is that the film about some sort of book that you can use to kill people, and theres guardian demons or something. It had sub titles. I'm maybe thinking of a completely different movie, I'm not sure but I enjoyed it. :)

      I'm not sure about the movie but here's the trailer to the anime since this is the anime/manga forum :



      I'm at episode 13 now ( I think, it's maybe 12, 13 or 14 ) and it's going great. :D
