Death Note, Anime Recommendation of the Week!

By Okami

December 1, 2022

Come on man, I am pretty sure almost all of us have watched this anime at least at some point. I am pretty sure this was the first anime of a lot of people too. One of my first animes as well. Death Note still holds a special place in all our hearts and for good reason too. Yes, I agree the anime messed up in the 2nd half but man, you can’t forget the good old big brain L vs. Kira and how awesome that was.

So welcome back to another edition of our anime recommendation series! This week we are talking about Death Note. The first anime for a lot of us and is still among the favorites of a lot of people. I don’t know what more to say, so let’s just jump right in.

Death Note Reboot Series: Everything We Know So Far

Introduction

I am pretty sure this anime needs no introduction but, let me still do my formalities. Death Note is based on the manga of the same name by Takeshi Obata and Tsugumi Ohba, the iconic duo who also did Bakuman and Platinum End. The anime aired from October 2006 to June 2007 and was made by Madhouse. It is of course, 37 episodes long and is directed by the awesome Tetsuro Araki.

Plot

Once again, I am pretty sure every one of us knows the plot of Death Note at this point. It is about Light Yagami, a “normal” high schooler whose life changes completely when he finds the Death Note. As the name suggests, it is literally a notebook of death. Any person whose name is written in the note will die. So Light decides to play god and starts killing criminals with his power left and right.

Death Note Rewatch - Episode 37 Discussion : r/anime

We all know how good Death Note’s plot is. We all love the L vs. Kira things and I’ve watched it countless times and I still can’t get enough of out. Yes, the 2nd half does fall off compared to the first half but it is still not that bad. Even if you don’t like the 2nd half, I am pretty sure almost everyone will be up for rewatching the amazing first half of the show.

Characters

Light and L are some of the most iconic characters in anime history. Like go check MAL now and Light and L have some of the highest numbers of favorites on their name. Death Note has some really amazing characters, even short-lived characters like Naomi are really really memorable. It is amazing what this anime manages to do in just 37 episodes.

Animations and Soundtracks

The animations do look aged by today’s standards but the art style Madhouse went with makes up for that by quite a bit. There are so many iconic scenes in this anime and Madhouse did an amazing job on all of those. The soundtracks once again are awesome, I literally cannot get Light’s theme out of my head after all these years.

Why should you (re)watch Death Note?

  • One of the best stories out there
  • Awesome characters
  • Great animations
  • High rewatch value!

Consider the Blu-Ray on Amazon!

Conclusion

Well, that’s all for now. Let me know what you guys think in the comments. Death Note is one of the cornerstones of anime, I feel. It brings in so so many new audiences and introduces them to anime. It is doing that even to this day and if not anything, you have to at least respect what this anime has achieved. With that said, I will take my leave here. See ya!!
