Hands down, one of the best anime ever. EVER. This really keeps you at the edge of your seat, and the best thing is that you have no idea who to root for: hero or villain? Forget all those cop shows you’ve seen, it has absolutely NOTHING compared to the chase laid out in this series. This is a MUST MUST MUST watch!!
Yagami Light is an ace student with great prospects, who’s bored out of his mind. One day he finds the “Death Note”: a notebook from the realm of the Death Gods, with the power to kill people in any way he desires, just by writing their name down. With the Death Note in hand, Light decides to create his perfect world, without crime or criminals, serving out his own personal brand of criminal justice. But trust me, he’s no hero. This will help create one of anime’s most bad-ass villains ever. However, when criminals start dropping dead one by one, the authorites send the legendary detective L to track down the killer, and a battle of wits, deception and logic ensues…
This is the ultimate showdown battle of genius minds. Think House vs… House. It doesn’t get more epic than that. An intricate, complex game of cat and mouse between L and Light. Can L stop Light from killing people? Can Light evade L’s amazing detective skills? It’s a definite thrill of a ride, nail-biting anime with every episode that passes and you won’t know who to root for.
