    Over the past three weeks I've been burning through one of the most exciting reads I've come across in a while. Death Note is a seat-edged battle of wits that left me exhausted by the end. Heck, I was exhausted by the halfway mark. Let me start over. Death Note is a Japanese comic t...

    Death Note was my first manga, and I enjoyed it rather more than I thought I would. Although the premise sounds quite macabre, this isn't a book about "killing people," as would seem from the description. The pleasure in reading Death Note comes from watching the battle of wits between...

    I don't read very much manga. But I picked the first few books of this series up on a whim, then quickly bought all the rest so I could finish the series. Short version? I really enjoyed it. Longer version: Here's some thoughts in no particular order.... ~ Great example of ...

    My first toe dip into the world of Manga, this was enjoyable and packed full of surprises and colourful characters. What would you do if you had the ability to kill anyone in the world just by writing their name and picturing their face, in a book? That's the situation Light finds ...

    2nd read- Had read this on iPad a couple of years ago..and stopped the series somewhere one fourth through. Recently happened to purchase the beautiful box set for my son, who has read it already 4 or 5 times on iPad and wanted to own the physical copy. He was highly impressed by the b...

    This is mind fucking, but still. I, I just love Death Note. So, so much. I must be cray cray, but I love Light Yagami more than L, even though I know L is correct and there should be justice. But I feel for Light. Even though he would kill and use me too in an instance. (Gosh, I ...

    There is no effing way I am spending six hundred hours reviewing every single volume, so I'll be brief: Death Note is awesome. Honestly, I absolutely loved it. Okay, it got so much shittier after Near showed up holding up a big sign shaped like an arrow that read "DEUS EX MACHINA" ...

    4 1/2 stars When I wrote in my review of Battle Royale that there were only two manga series I really enjoyed, it made me realise just how much in need of a review this was. I am not a manga fan, I know some people love it like crazy, but I've tried starting the most commonly loved - ...

    Death Note vol. 1 shows well drawn graphics, an anti-hero as main character that surprises/shocks, a *monster* that becomes actually?endearing, controversial themes that will provoke raw emotions along with deep thoughts and a writing and dialogs that make the characters look real an...

    This is more of my opinion on the whole series instead of the first volume. Death note is a highly addictive read. I would say it?s the best manga I?ve ever read. It?s one of those stories which leaves you desperate for the ending, but at the same time upset because it all end...

    Trah la la, I have me a manga that I'm in love with and I need the rest of them now and I might have to get them because I want them now and I pre-ordered the freaking funko of L because I'm in love with L and unfortunately I didn't like the Funko's of Ryuk or Light. I was really hopin...

    I think this set up a whole lot of interesting things that can happen throughout the series. It took me a little while to wrap my brain around how many people he was killing, but I think I'm really starting to get into it now! ...

    Definitely 4.5 stars. This is my first manga and I'm hooked!! So interesting and intriguing with lots of information that just feeds your curiosity that little bit more but not too much to indulge you. Ryuk is a fantastic character although I think there's more to him than he's letting...

    Come on,it doesn't get more original than this. I've already watched "Death Note" so the story is not shocking for me,but it's as interesting as it was last summer.The characters are amazing and I can't wait to see how they develop throughout the series.Light VS L is probably one of...

    First review: My first manga! And it was strange to read it from right to left :) But the idea and the storyline are quite interesting. Going to read more)) Final review : 3.83? So, great manga ended... I loved ending, though so many people despised it. It was logical and Li...

    My first graphic novel and manga experience was definitely a good one and I might already be hooked! I didn't know how I would get on with the format but I found myself just as immersed in the story, after a few pages, as I would an ordinary novel. This managed to pack in so much in...

    I recently watched the trailer for the american film from Netflix and as a person who respects herself and appreciates quality and authenticity I decided to read the manga. Dear Americans stop ruining epic things. God I've missed Light and L and I was smiling like a fool. DEATH NOT...

    Not Stopping Until I Hit The Finale. My wife was hunting me down to read this manga and until I do that, she won't let me breath. Well, well! I'm glad that she has tremendously fantastic choices in everything. And so she proved it in this case too. A thrilling ride Death Not...

    Update 14.01.18 I?ve got to remove my rating from here. I wasn?t a fan of this manga but I?ve come to realize that I might just not be a fan of manga as a genre, period. HOWEVER, having just finished the entirety of death note in the form of an anime, I?d like to come to my k...
