Death note was an interesting anime. The anime’s main character is Light Yagami, a student who come across a diary that gives him the ability to kill.
The plot line of the show is very straight forward. A young male becomes drunk with power and the police are helpless to stop him. However soon enough a detective by the nickname of L arrives and the plot thickens.
I constantly found myself lost or simply astounded by what was happening or how the characters had reached certain conclusions.
It would be the animated equivalent of Sherlock, I guess.
Death note is a fast paced anime with older styled animation. There are no epic fight scenes.
There is definitely romance in this anime but it is not main focus of Death Note.
I think this anime deserves 3.5/5 stars. Hope you enjoy!
