just finished watching death note and thought it was a lot of fun
i really liked the characters and the story
>what did you think
Dub Note and Ladies Night were some of the greatest times I've ever had on /a/.
I thought the show was great. Shame they never made a second season. Had so much potential.
But it ended at the perfect point.
You probably gonna piss a lot of anons off but i'll bite.
I remember watching this a long time ago. The first 25 episodes were so close to perfection to me, the last 12 were terible
anime fits into 2 catagories
>under 30 episodes
>over 9000 episodes
this show had 37 episodes with the main story lasting 25
I'm not gonna lie. Watching Death Note got me into anime
It was a really good show, first part was amazing
I like you
agreed, so many times in the last few episodes where i was like, wtf are you doing you cant take over the world like that
On this board, we use proper capitalisation.
I really wish the anime would have been a lot different from the manga.
Plot holes, the show.
>Shame they never made a second season
I don't think you understand how manga adaptions work
manga > anime
The way it ended with L dying was a great ending. That really was a great conclusion. I'm glad they never continued it after that, because there'd be nowhere for them to go from there.
Near was my favorite character
I only watched the first and last episodes, since it's a pretty straight adaptation and I've read the manga to death.
I guess at some point I'll watch the series from the beginning but the altered ending put me off.
Giving him a peaceful, warm death just didn't feel right. In the manga he dies like a pathetic piece of shit, in a puddle of his own blood and begging for his life. Being shot drags his "divine ego" down into the dirty reality of answering for his human crimes.
I did sort of like the idea of Death Note users becoming Shinigami when they die (even if it was a deleted scene).
>I did sort of like the idea of Death Note users becoming Shinigami when they die (even if it was a deleted scene).
I don't like the idea of Mello being a Shinigami
I think it was implied that Light became one due to very heavy usage. But it's moot anyway, since it didn't happen in the manga.
Plus the "official" Rules of the Note state that people who die go to Nothingness (karma is irrelevant), and once dead they can never be brought back to life.
this is what the shinigami that is implied to be light looks like in the first movie looks like
They're only glaring on repeat viewings. It was a show that required suspension of disbelief, though, and that's fine.
If you look too critically at some scenes you'll get a bunch of "but what if" thoughts popping into your mind. What if Light didn't kill the fake L on TV, fucking up L's plan to narrow the search? Any situation where Light has the choice to back off and doesn't, will make you mad when you re-read/watch it, because you know every fuckup is leading toward his eventual failure.
Looks more like Higuchi
Wow, at least in the DVD cut he was wearing the ragged beige jacket and red tie, that doesn't even fucking look like him.
So how did L know about Lights first use of the deathnote? If I remember correctly he ordered that dude on the motor cycle to get hit my a truck. I remember L specifically citing this event, saying it was likely the first time kira experimented with his power.
L thought Kiras first use of death note was to kill that man in tv who took hostages
As soon as L figured out that Kira's calling card was heart attacks, he just browsed through some news archives for any "unusual" deaths in the last few months.
The school terrorist died in front of tons of witnesses from a sudden and inexplicable heart attack. Even though it wasn't front page news, the police report probably mentioned them saying he just dropped dead suddenly. The heart-attack killings all over Japanese prisons began not too long after.
L was smarter than Light from the beginning. Probably because L was super-autistic, so he was insanely intuitive but socially retarded.
Same here. It's a gateway anime
it also helps that he's got millions of dollars at his disposal, the full support of law enforcement, AND a secret organization of geniuses that solve crime.
Seriously if there's one thing I wanted to know it's how in the hell L even came to be. Sure the kid's smart, sure he's good at solving crimes, but how the fuck does that lead up to L?
Unfortunetely we'll never get to know because despite having the odds overwhelmingly stacked in his favor, he still managed to get himself killed.
Love it. I actually went out and got the entire manga series.
Hmm, maybe I'm remembering wrong, but in the anime he dies like a bitch too. The only difference is that instead of getting shot to death and dying in a puddle of his own blood, he gets shot, limps away like an animal, and dies in a pool of his own blood begging for his own life because of the death note.
Wasn't there a prequel about L saving the world that kinda sums that up?
What I'm wondering is how Near learned everything that was supposed to have died with L during the time skip.
In the anime he dies peacefully, alone, aglow in the sunset with L's ghost watching over him.
In the manga he dies face up screaming "I don't want to die! I don't want to die!" like a bitch, in front of everyone.
>implying L Save The World should ever ever be considered canon
At least the LA BB novel had some interesting characters going for it.
The other novel is just bad, no one should subject themselves to spinoff fanfic.
>What I'm wondering is how Near learned everything that was supposed to have died with L during the time skip.
Well he did have three years to investigate it and he knew about the death note from one of the police officers who arrested Higuchi
Near's ability to absorb and process information is even greater than L's. He is shown frequently watching ten or more monitors at once, all playing different news reports, Kira's talkshow episodes, etc.
He notices Mikami for the same reason Light does-- he's just a really intense looking guy, way more serious than anyone else on the screen.
Which makes it all the more agonizing, knowing if Mikami had just stayed to his fucking schedule, Light would have effortlessly trumped Near with the fake Note and his reign would have continued for years.
>Which makes it all the more agonizing, knowing if Mikami had just stayed to his fucking schedule, Light would have effortlessly trumped Near with the fake Note and his reign would have continued for years.
But with Takada in that situation it was Mikami's duty to end her
Just rewatched it and you're right. It really makes a difference, since the anime ending made you start to feel bad for light watching all the memories go by.
Why can't for once they just lock up the bad guy instead of killing him on impulse or letting him suicide etc
All Near had to do was to say: Lester, Gevanni seize him!
why not kill the whole L team
continue using misa
keep the third notebook
I love it. I have also noticed that it's a great series to get people into anime.
Same for me too
If you mean the characters in the story, they were going to do that, but Light was about to kill one of them, seizing him would have taken too long instead of just shooting on impulses.
If you mean the writers, its because this way it can end without having to waste pages on his trial and days in prison until his execution.
It's like ryuk said, he don't want to bother being bored in prison so he will just write Lights name in the note if he gets caught
>who are you quoting?
