Excellent Performance and story
9 May 2017 | by unixpuppetSee all my reviews

Death Note is the one of the best original work that Japanese have developed and created a truly mysterious story, with creative characters. Honestly, I really loved the story (plot) and the developed characters. The story is quite inspiring, full with excitement. Based on the famous Japanese manga written by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata, Death Note follows a high school student who comes across a supernatural notebook, realizing it holds within it a great power.

NOTE: The only reason, why people dislike it, is that the two characters "Light" and "L' is not too involved at all in this series.
