“Anybody who sees himself as a god falls victim to his wrath.” Actually, I can say this is the summary of the whole production. I want to present to you a very mysterious anime review. It is so cryptic that it is unknown who its author really is. Since it is an anime based on manga, we should address it as “Writer and Illustrator”. Although Tsugumi Oba’s real name is unknown, it is kept a secret. The illustrator, on the other hand, has excited his pen in various productions. Death Note is not only a blue-eyed boy for anime lovers but also it is the guest of honor for other viewers. The categories it includes can be counted as; mystery, psychological, and thriller. By the way, mystery and psychology are so abundant that your brain will blaze in some chapters. This anime, which was produced in 2006, still has a lot of viewers. We can move on to our Death Note Review without making you wait too long.
What is the plot of Death Note?
Yagami Light, a senior high school student who is sick of his life, is preparing for the university exams. He is both intelligent and talented in most subjects. But these features led him to curse his tedious life. One day on his return from school, he finds a notebook that says “Death Note” on it. Not caring too much, he takes the notebook and goes home. After a while, Yagami, who started to examine the notebook, learns that the person whose name is written will die of a heart attack. Since what is written does not fit into his mind, he writes the name of a criminal who takes people hostage in the news to verify it. Before long, the man dies. Shocked by this incident, Light embarks on a challenging adventure to create his world.
Death Note Anime Review and Analysis
“What should I do?” Should I watch it or not? InitialIy, I did hesitate to watch it. Animes, which include a mystery at every moment, overwhelm others at first. This article will be entirely on Death Note review. Before starting my review, let me also make this warning. Every sentence after this part can include a spoiler. Be careful!!
The characters in which the God complex takes place are highly emphasized in the anime. For example, in Code Geass, we also have a God complex character. Of course, this can be discussed if it passes Yagami. As you start watching Death Note, you can feel the cold air from below. If there wasn’t Misa Amane, there wouldn’t be a smiley face in the anime. However, this is reflected on the audience in such a way that there are many people, including me, who do not blink while watching.
Death Note Series has 37 episodes, but it has crammed into 1 season in total. While watching, I assure you won’t understand how time passes. For this reason, let me make a joke saying you have to put your head in the fridge once in a while. I recommend you to rest from time to time while watching. Let me emphasize that this viewing pleasure, I think, is valid for the first 26 episodes. There is a big spoiler here, so you can go back if you don’t want to learn it. With the death of L., it started to deteriorate. I mean, even if it didn’t start to get worse, it started to lose its quality.
Yagami may be clever, but it needs someone against it. Here, our “L” brother comes into play directly. He is someone who enshrined our memory with his different manner and a different mindset. The audience of the series is divided into two groups while one side defends Yagami Light to death, the others cant put a foot wrong to “L”. In this situation, I want to keep my side to myself.
Each audience interprets the subject of the series differently. My comment is “Providing justice by killing people is a massacre.” Those watching this can easily say that. For example, Light murdered a couple of detectives just for his benefit, but Light thought he was invincible because he could kill anyone he wanted with his strength. In the last episode, we saw his invincibility, Light boy…
There is also “Misa Amane“, the girl version of this. Kira (I haven’t used this word too much, but Kira means a killer in Japanese. In the series, people also use Kira name because they don’t know the true identity of Light.) That is, Misa also has a Death Note. However, because she is very intemerate, she can kill people after her own heart. At the same time, Misa is in love with our Light. I laughed here, and state that this love is one-sided. By the way don’t ask what Light has done using this girl.
I think you will watch the series without wincing. Enjoy the series.
