Death Note: a dark story that's worth the watch

 Death note is an anime filled with drama, crime, mystery, and thrills.

My expectations for the show were pretty high because I’ve heard a lot of good things about it. Both from friends and over the internet I heard a lot of high praise for the show.

Light Yagami is a brilliant High School student who is at the top of his country school-wide. Recently he’s been a bit bored of life, he feels like he’s too smart for this world and there’s too much Injustice in it. One day in class a notebook falls to the ground reading the words death note. As soon as class is over he goes over to the book and picks it up. inside the book, it reads “The human whose name is written in this book shall die. This note will not take effect unless the writer has the person’s face in their mind when writing his/her name. therefore, people sharing the same name will not be affected.” When he first saw this he didn’t think of it much and left it but decided after walking a few feet that he should try it just in case.

When he gets home he decides to test it out on a local news story about this hostage situation. It should also be said that the person whose name is written shall die in 40 seconds. so he tried it out and then 40 seconds later right when he was about to dismiss that it was fake. The people that were in the situation came out and said that the man just suddenly had a heart attack and die

d. This was all the proof he needed he felt that if anyone could make a change in this cruel world full of Injustice it would be him. In his mind he is going to become the god of the new world that he is going to make a world where people don’t have to fear that someone’s going to come into their house and be murdered at night.

Death note is in my top 10 of my favorite shows. I just finished it not too long ago and it was a breathtakingly good show. From start to finish I have to say it holds up to everything I’ve heard about it.

There are many likable characters in this show, my favorite is “L” who you don’t get to meet until a few episodes later. The show is filled with moments that stun you with how smart the two main characters are. Light and L’s relationship throughout the series was amazing, and Light is the perfect main character.

A lot of animes are colorful and the dark theme is reflected by the dark color scheme and tones in the show.

Some people may not like it because it’s an anime but it’s one of those shows where it doesn’t matter, it’s just good. I would highly recommend watching it if you haven’t watched it already, I would give the show a 9/10.
