Light Yagami is an ace student with great prospects–and he’s bored out of his mind. But all that changes when he finds the Death Note, a notebook dropped by a rogue Shinigami death god. Any human whose name is written in the notebook dies, and now Light has vowed to use the power of the Death Note to rid the world of evil. Will Light’s noble goal succeed, or will the Death Note turn him into the very thing he fights against?

Opening Sentence: “Two Deaths Heads. I win again.”


Let’s be real here. Death note is one of the best manga’s and anime’s out there. It’s so well beloved and for good reason. It’s mysterious and thrilling and unique. There are high stakes and constant tension between L and Light. There’s the idea of being in control of who lives and who dies that is done in such a “high” moralistic point of view that you wonder who your rooting for.

One of my all time favorite parts of reading this manga is how the uses for the death note are next to the new chapter art.

The art style of this manga is dark and stunning. It adds to its dark horror fantasy mystery feel. All the elements combined story and art make it out to be the excellent manga that it is.

If you haven’t read or watched death note I highly suggest you think about picking it up. It’s a thrilling read that does not disappoint.
