About this deal

The All-in-One Edition was released in English on September 6, 2017, resulting in the February 2008 one-shot being released in English for the first time.

Tetsurō Araki, the director, said that he wished to convey aspects that "made the series interesting" instead of simply "focusing on morals or the concept of justice". Since Word of God and the manga universe have bent over backwards to say that there were no gods in the Death Note universe this means that it's just conjecture on Light's part, and the events fall in his favor by simple, improbable coincidence.He made plans that had to work correctly despite him not being able to make any adjustments for two or three months, or even make sure he carried out his part.

Crapsack World: Light certainly thinks the world is one and thus he feels that he needs to clean it up. When pushed, he suggested: "Humans will all eventually die, so let's give it our all while we're alive". You may block cookies via standard web-browser settings, but this site may not function correctly without cookies. Being Watched: Light very quickly picks up on the cameras that have been hidden around his house, and enlists the invisible Ryuk's help in locating them all. The story follows Light Yagami, a genius high school student who discovers a mysterious notebook: the "Death Note", which belonged to the shinigami Ryuk, and grants the user the supernatural ability to kill anyone whose name is written in its pages.Some characters—including Matsuda, eventually—are conflicted as to whether Kira is a villain or a hero, as he largely targets criminals. Adaptation-Induced Plot Hole: The anime omits several scenes from the manga which, while usually not problematic, created several plotholes. In May 2010, a middle school student in Avonworth School District in Pennsylvania was suspended for a "Death Note" with names of fellow students and pop singer Justin Bieber. The episodes from the anime first appeared in North America as downloadable from IGN before Viz Media licensed it. How to Read states that the humorous aspects of Death Note originated from Ohba's "enjoyment of humorous stories".

The illustrator's weekly production schedule involved one day with the thumbnails, layout, and pencils and one day with additional penciling and inking. Everything that happened since he lost his memories was a master plan to get them and the Death Note back while getting suspicion off of him in the process.Light’s mini-TV used in his potato chip gambit is branded as Cazio, similar to Japanese electronics manufacturer Casio. While initially horrified at his actions, Light rationalises that he can use the Death Note as a force for good by purging the rotten and corrupt elements of society, thus creating a world free of crime and violence. So L has a criminal act as a stand-in, airs a "worldwide broadcast," and has the criminal openly renounce Kira. In the manga, he explains that his overactive brain uses up all the calories, while in the anime he claims that "if you do it right" you can eat whatever you want, effectively outsmarting his food.

Bystander Syndrome: As pointed out in Death Note Abridged "in this footage you can see various pedestrians who clearly don't give a shit that somebody near them just collapsed and died. In May 2010, the Albuquerque Public Schools in New Mexico held a hearing to ban the Death Note manga from their district's schools; it was unanimously voted down.Running over thirty-seven 20 minutes episodes, the anime sticks much closer to the manga so takes a far more languid approach to storytelling, better fleshing out the fantastic characters of Light and his nemesis, L. Alternate Character Reading: The kanji for Light's name is "tsuki", meaning "Moon", but his parents opted for it to be read as "Light" instead. Said Shinigami bears striking similarities to that of Light (though not in appearance since the Shinigami is a walking skeleton) leading to theories that the two are one and the same.
