I didn't see any thread like this so I took the initiative and made my own. :D

Anyways, this club(if you haven't noticed...) is where Death Note fans/lovers/L-fanatics/nerds/Lemurs can talk about the show, it's characters, and it's elements. That's about it, really. XP

Rules:

To join Just post saying you want in. Anyone can join. There aren't any "special" requirements. I just ask that the person who wants to be a member has at least read the first volume of the manga and/or watched the first episode and/or will be starting the series soon.

If you don't like Death Note, please don't post a bunch of crap to flame the show. I'll see to your doom. *whips out Death Note and waves it in offender's face*

No flaming members(or if you are a member, other members). This is
supposed to be a place where we can discuss the show and have a great time. Flaming other people will ruin the fun.(and break my heart. ;-;

The last episode of the English has aired! As far as spoilers go, it's safe to talk about anything in the anime without putting them in tags. So yeah, have fun. :D

All other SPPF rules apply.

That's about it for now. I'll make up more rules as we go.(wherever I see fit.) These are basically the guidelines.

Owner: Pikawho?(obviously I have pride issues for refering to myself in the 3rd person. 8D)

Co-owner(s): Mimori Kiryu; VampirateMace

Pikawho?

Yeah, you can join. I don't know about co-own. Let's see who else joins. Answer the current topic while your at it. XP

Opening topic: What got you into Death Note?(or made you watch it/read the manga?)

I had recently been watching many different anime.(when i finally learned that the eps were online) So I decided to watch it because I had heard alot of good stuff about it. XP

So yeah....Your reasons can be this bland. XP

I was at a bleach forum and found a link to someones sig. It lead to a death note download website and I got hooked since then.

I will join! I love Death Note(even though I've only seen one episode). Anyways, for the topic:

What got you into Death Note?(or made you watch it/read the manga?)
My friend that I really like(and she knows it) was talking about how awsome it was, so I watched an episode to see for myself. I LOVE IT!! L is probably my favorite character.

If you don't choose Alchemeng for Co-Owner than I would gladly accept. I don't care who you choose, but I still love this club.

Pikawho?
5th March 2008, 1:09 AM
^Same spheal goes for you, no co-owners until I see someone mature enough for it. XP It's not that I have anything against you guys, I just don't want to give out co-owner positions to the first to join. You are a member, though. XP

New Topic: Who are your favorite characters and why?

L, Near, Light, Misa, Matsuda, Ryuk. I love all the characters, but these were my favs. Near is probably my best favorite.

Near because he's freaking brilliant for a kid(even though he plays with toys and his hair) I'm interested to see how they voice him in the English dub.


BTW, feel free to make topics. XP

Pikawho?
5th March 2008, 2:45 AM
^I never said that you weren't mature. I'd rather wait and see how things unfold before I grant the co-owner spot to anyone. So yeah...XP

L is awesome. I like how he comes up with conclusions using logic.

Walcott
5th March 2008, 3:04 AM
He really is. I wish my hair was like his. I hate my hair a whole lot.

Walcott
6th March 2008, 1:56 AM
I'm sorry, but I do not know anyone. Azure Wolf made mine. I've tried to make baners for my clubs, but tey always turn out feakishly huge. >_<

Alchemeng
6th March 2008, 2:34 AM
I agree with buraddo L is my favorite. He's a very unique character. I love the way he holds the phone plus we're eating most of the time.

Hey pikawho I can not become the co-owner because I know for a fact I'm not on much I just said it to bump the club.

Pikawho?
6th March 2008, 5:41 AM
Bumping is good, as long as it's not spam. 8D

I have friends in high places who can make banners so don't exhaust yourselves attacking people for them. XP

New Topic: Did you see the series via anime or Manga or both? If both, which do you prefer?

I watched the entire series via anime. It's much easier to access than the manga. The manga is still good, though.

ALLOOOTTTTT.

: D

Who are your favorite characters and why?

MISAAAAAAAA. And L, obviously.

Misa because I know she has this secret plan of hers to lure everybody into thinking she's dumb then she can take over the world. MUWHAHAHAHAHA. But I really like her cause she's so pretty <3 And ... so innocent, so cute.

L because he's just that sexy. : D SPEAKING ABOUT HIM, I SHALL SHARE A LINK THAT RAGGEH SHARED WITH ME.

Did you see the series via anime or Manga or both? If both, which do you prefer?

Well, a few friends introduced me to Death Note anime, and ... I fell in love with it. :x It's so cool how you can instantly kill people with just writing a name in that weird black book, and it's fun to watch the two Light&L compete with each other with their smart brains. : D Then i went to buy the movies, Death Note and Death Note II (The Last Name). I haven't read the Manga, but I'm planning to buy it. :]

Omgosh, a Death Note club! Sign me up! ^__________^

What got you into Death Note? (or made you watch it/read the manga?)

You know, now that I think about it I don't really remember. I think I was browsing a Books A Million manga section near where I live. I was looking for a new series and I saw the first one. Light (even though I didn't know his name then.) was attractive to me (yeah. XD don't ask) and then I saw Ryuk and I knew he was a Shinigami (just from the design). I read the back cover and bought it. The rest is history.

Who are your favorite characters and why?

L, Light, Matsuda and Mello.

...yeah.


Did you see the series via anime or Manga or both? If both, which do you prefer?

As I said in the first question, the manga was the one I saw first. I own all of it (including #13) and I watched the last episode of the anime. I'm currently watching the English version of the anime and its pretty good. 8D I love both the anime and manga - I can't choose Dx


I think I have a topic...

Did you think that Light had the right intentions to cleanse the world?

I honestly think so. I just think he took it too far. D:

Zabi
8th March 2008, 8:53 PM
=O Death Note Club! *wants to join*

What got you into Death Note? (or made you watch it/read the manga?)

Hearing it was going to air on Adult Swim made me curious as to what it was. I bought the first manga and have been addicted ever since. =D

Who are your favorite characters and why?

Matsuda, as he is funny. L, as he is L, no one cannot dislike him!

Did you see the series via anime or Manga or both? If both, which do you prefer?

I like both. Its hard to dislike either of them. I guess the manga I prefer as I read it first. The anime is a very close second though.

Did you think that Light had the right intentions to cleanse the world?

Yes, if anyone had that power, I think everyone would try to do it.


I have a topic:

Do any of you have the Death Note Novel: Death Note: Another Note the BB Murder Cases?

I do, and I loved it. The ending was really good!

I got lucky, one copy left at my Barns and Noble. I was so happy. It will show up. The lady at the Borders I go to said most people don't put stuff out for a bit. So maybe your stores have it, but not on shelves? When you find it though, you will love it. ^^

I spotted Death Note 13: How To Read and it wasn't anywhere near it, like I thought it would be. The people working at Books-A-Million say the same thing to me all the time too. D:


...I can't wait. I need something more with L in it. ;___;

Welcome!

Is the 13th volume out in English or do you have the Japanese?

Did you think that Light had the right intentions to cleanse the world?

Yes. I really like that he didn't use the Death Note to benefit him.(although he kinda did...but you know what I mean...I think....) But yeah, he got out of hand in the end and became the thing he was trying to destroy.

Never heard of it. Link please? 8D

Mimori Kiryu
9th March 2008, 8:46 PM
I don't have a link for the novel but here's a summary from Wiki.


Novel

A novel adaption of the series has been written by Nisio Isin, called Death Note Another Note: The Los Angeles BB Murder Cases. It serves as a prequel to the manga series, with Mello narrating the story of L's first encounter with Naomi Misora during the Los Angeles "BB Serial Murder Case" mentioned in volume 2 of the manga. Beside Naomi's character, the novel focuses on how L works. Insight was given into Watari's orphanage (named "Wammy's House") and how the whole system of geniuses such as L, Mello, and Near were put to work. Viz released the novel in English on February 19, 2008, however many retailers began selling the books as early as February 7, 2008.I really wanna read it. :D


And the 13th volume is out in English. It came out the same time as the novel. ;D I also agree with your answer to my topic. He did become the thing he wanted to destroy - which is ironic. I have another topic, if anyone's interested. It's a spoiler topic though.

Do you think the anime/manga took a fall after L was killed off?

Honestly, I thought so. ;___; I love L to death and the series took a really bad turn after that. I like Mello, but Near is so annoying and an L-wannabe. Dx

Pikawho?
9th March 2008, 11:59 PM
Do you think the anime/manga took a fall after L was killed off?

Kinda...It wasn't that big of a let down, to me, but it did kinda slow down a bit. Near is freaking awesome! Leave him alone! >(

XP

I'll see if the library has the manga and/or the novel then. Otherwise, I'll see if I can go to borders at some point. 8D

XPIt's not that I hate Near - he's cool. I just wish he was a little more different than L. He acts just like a clone in a lot of ways except he doesn't like sweets all that much like L did. :/ That's my only problem with him. Not to mention, except for the clothing, his mannerisms are similar too. That's the only thing I don't like.



I'll see if the library has the manga and/or the novel then. Otherwise, I'll see if I can go to borders at some point. 8DI've gotta go to Books-A-Million soon and ask 'em about it. I really wanna read that novel. Dx

I know what you mean. This was the only question I could answer as I am afraid to open the spoilers.

His intentions are right but I also think its contradictory to cleanse the world by shedding blood. But there is really no other way to do it, I guess I mean you can't just make terrible people disappear.

But there is really no other way to do it, I guess I mean you can't just make terrible people disappear.The spoilers are mainly for those watching the English dub and the one we were discussing is a big one so watch out. Dx

And I agree with you. It is true that cleansing the world by shedding blood is contraditory, but isn't it what we've (by we I mean humans) done since the beginning of time? You know, fighting wars to end fighting? And yeah, there really is no other way to get rid of them. As Light said, the more criminals see that someone is raining justice down on them, the more they won't do bad crimes. It's like that old saying, "There's nothing to fear but fear itself." XD I guess I'm going to deep into this.

And, before I forget, welcome to mew-the original. :D

I'll give this some thought. To be honest, all the characters contributed stuff to the plot.

I just decided to make a topic for the heck of it. XP

Who do you think the series could have done without?

I honestly agree 100% with Pikawho?. That answer is prolly the same for everyone.

Hey have any Co-Owners been chosen yet?

Pikawho?
12th March 2008, 2:21 AM
^Not yet, but by Thursday night, one person will be appointed.(since I need someone to maintain saneness while I'm gone next week. XP) So yeah...XP *has good idea who to appoint*

Back to my topic: Even the little characters(like that guy who ran to the TV station and was killed instantly by Misa) did something. If he hadn't been killed, L might've allowed Aizawa to run off. But meh...I'll think of anyone else, but for the most part, it seems that everyone was useful.

Walcott
12th March 2008, 2:33 AM
I don't even know who he is at all, but that's because I've only seen the past three episodes. Hope that doesn't effectmy chance in becoming a Co-Owner. Can I make a new topic? If so:

What is your aspect on this show?(other than loving it)Do you think it' interesting, scary, etc.?
I will answer if I'm allowed to create this topic.

**Can you give us a hint about who you might choose for a Co-Owner?

Pikawho?
12th March 2008, 4:47 AM
I believe that the rules say that anyone can make a topic....Otherwise I'll add that. XP

What is your aspect on this show?(other than loving it)Do you think it' interesting, scary, etc.?

I think it's interesting and really awesome. Some parts of it(like episode one) are really dark and I don't necesarrily enjoy that part of the show. I love it because it's very smart and the plot was made so well.

Hint? Someone who hasn't asked/pestered me about it. >)

Honestly, I think it needs everyone to work. It wouldn't be Death Note if someone was missing. ^^;

What is your aspect on this show?(other than loving it)Do you think it' interesting, scary, etc.?

I think its amazing - in story plot and in the way the story was actually presented. It twisted around the human ways we believe into a version which suited our future beliefs. What I mean is how Light's pure ambition turned into evil ambition with hardly any effort - just like the real world, you know? ^^ That's just how I see it. And I think its so amazing the work that Ohba-sensei and Obata-sensei put together. <3

12th March 2008, 7:35 AM
What got you into Death Note?(or made you watch it/read the manga?)
Well, when I first heard that it was going to replace Bleach on Adult Swim I figured I'd watch the anime in Japanese. I've finished the anime and absolutely loved it.

Who do you think that series could have done without?
I didn't think the one Shinigami who was with Mello for a short while (His name escapes me) was all that important.

Do you think the anime/manga took a fall after L was killed off?
A bit.

What is your aspect on this show?(other than loving it)Do you think it' interesting, scary, etc.?
I thought the plot was very well set up and the art was amazing, though I think they might have made the characters a bit too smart. ha ha.

Oh, I'm sorry. I was only asking and didn't know that you were annoyed. I never meant to get so caught up in this. I just saw that the club was growing and that you weren't always online, so I wanted you to choose a Co-Owner to handle everything. That is all. I'm sorry.

Pikawho?
12th March 2008, 5:00 PM
What I enjoyed about the series, was that in the middle of the episode(at the end of the chapters in the Manga) it showed you the rules. I thought that that was neat, but it was even cooler that some of those rules weren't even used. So it really shows you how serious the authors were about the series. XP

And yeah, the co-owner has been decided. I'll contact them shortly and make the announcement soon.

Mimori Kiryu

I didn't think the one Shinigami who was with Mello for a short while (His name escapes me) was all that important.Well, Sidoh is important because while he doesn't seem to do alot, its also because of him that Soichiro (Light's father) was killed. D: So...yeah, that's important. XD

Pikawho?
12th March 2008, 5:50 PM
^What she said. XP

Anyways, Mimori Kiryu is the new co-owner. So she'll be in charge while I'm gone next week. So yeah...Congrats. XP

New Topic: What are your opinions about the Yotsuba arc?

The English dub is currently in this arc so spoiler what you need to. XP

I thought that things started to get really slow as it went through.(mostly because Light lost his memories of the Death Note and has no desire to kill L. ;-;

I loved it when Light got his memories back. I wasn't expecting him to get them back so it kinda took me by surprise. XP But yeah...

Mimori Kiryu
12th March 2008, 6:03 PM
^Thanks. :D I'm glad I was chosen. ^^

What are your opinions about the Yotsuba arc?

I actually enjoy this arc a lot. Reasons being that I love innocent Light. I truly think that he wouldn't have become crazy had he not realized what he could've gotten away with when it came to the Death Note. I also love the love/hate relationship between Light and L. If things had been different, the two of them could've become the best crime fighting twosome ever, you know? I just enjoy that aspect. (I do agree with you though, Pikawho, that it does go slow for the most part. D: But it just makes the innocent Light last longer for me. <3) However...

I knew things wouldn't stay that way. I was reading the manga so, I had a suspicion that Light had a plan to kill L either without his memories or he'd some how get them back. Never did I realize the plans he had in store. It was pretty amazing; Light is much smarter than L but I think L is more...I guess, deceptive, for lack of a better term. When Light finally did kill L, I was honestly surprised. I had to reread the chapter over and over again to make sure it was real. D: I didn't want it to be true, naturally, because I really loved L. ;_; But I realized then that in the real world, evil sometimes wins and you've just gotta deal. It sucks though. xP

12th March 2008, 8:54 PM
Congrats Mimori!

What are your thoughts on the Yotsuba Arc?

I really enjoyed this arc. In the begining, I thought, "Damn, so much writing and it looks boring." But, actually, I think I enjoyed this one the most. A lot of twists, and a lot of shocking moments.

I was shocked when Rem approached Misa and when Light got his memories back. When he lost them, I thought, "How in the living hell will he get them back?" and now that he got them back, I was real upset, cause then L....died. But yes, I really enjoyed this arc.

Mimori Kiryu
12th March 2008, 11:39 PM
Thanks, Zabi. ^^ And I agree with you. There was a lot of writing on the manga pages. Dx I was so tired of reading after awhile and I had to reread a couple of pages, but it was definitely worth it. XD

I was really upset that L died too. ;___; I mean, I did understand and get over it, but the series kinda took a downhill from that. Mello was original, yes (CHOCOLATE!) but Near seemed too much like L except for he traded sweets for toys...

Walcott
12th March 2008, 11:56 PM

Umm... what is that(lol) I'm not kidding though.Thanks. ^^

And the Yotsuba arc is the arc in which Light loses his memories and he, L and the other members of the SPK, (Special Protection Kira or the division which searches for Kira.), search for Kira through the company Yotsuba. :D Hope that helps.

It's where the English dub is now.

Pikawho?
13th March 2008, 1:02 AM
Yeah, the English dub started it at the end of episode 17. Episode 19 was the last one. Season two will then start with the next ep. 8D

Yeah. The Mello and Near arc didn't get good till the very end. Takada was just....boring. She was dull to me. When she killed Mello, I was upset. Because, Mello was...awesome. The final chapter made me pleased, yet I was :o when I first read it. Light friggin died! I was shocked, yet happy, due to him killing L. >D I am so ebul.

Here's a question to those who've finished the manga: Is Rem a guy in the manga? I've read volume 4 and Light keeps refering to Rem as a he....

Has anyone seen this vid? I think its funny as hell. http://youtube.com/watch?v=SPlpnq3o46wI hated Takada from the beginning because she was yet another love blind woman who fell for Light's every trick. When she killed Mello, I was sooooooo pissed off. SO PISSED OFF. I threw my manga across my room and growled at it. <<;


Here's a question to those who've finished the manga: Is Rem a guy in the manga? I've read volume 4 and Light keeps refering to Rem as a he....In the manga, Shinigami have no genders. She takes the appearance of a female, but according to Death Note: How to Read 13, Shinigami don't have genders. I guess it was changed in the anime. Dx I'm not really sure. I never noticed the difference because I always saw Rem as a female and Ryuk and Sidoh as males. D:

XPI knew they had no genders, but I never really paid attention to the fact that they needed genders. XD I mean, it didn't ever really mean anything to the plot because that wasn't the reason for the plot.


I think I have another topic.

Which side would you be on? Kira or the SPK?

This is assuming you didn't know anything about the series, characters or whatever. You're a normal civilian taking a side in this.

In all honesty, I would probably cheer on Kira if I didn't know any better, since he had the right idea in the first place. It kinda annoys me that I think this way, but I would anyway. I know I would. What about you all?

Probably Kira's, as well. I think that he was kinda doing the right thing. and if I were just an average citizen, I'd probably be rooting for him. XP Crappy reasons, but meh. XP However, if I knew that he was somewhat evil then maybe not as much, but still. When I watched the anime, I rooted for Light just because he was the main character. XP

I am glad Light made her die, after Mello died. I mean, Takada ****** me off so much, it wasn't funny. She was a sl*t who wanted power. God, I wish they never showed her in the first place, or why did they bring her back to be Light's assistant? They coulda brought a brand new character who is cooler than Takada.

They wanted the viewers to have their own opinion about who was evil and who was good - and I tell ya, they made it pretty freaking hard considering near the end, I didn't like what Light was standing for anymore, but I didn't like Near either. >_<; I was kinda like Matsuda, if you want to get down to the grit.

Well, I understand why they brought her back. She was easily manipulated into doing anything by Light - he needed a person like that who was smarter than Misa, but was still obsessed with love for him. Takada fit the bill so easily. And I know why they didn't bring a new character because they would've been just as easily manipulated because that's how Light was unfortunately. He could do it to everyone - which includes Mikami too. But yeah, if Takada wasn't there, I'd probably like the series more because Mello would've lived and to be honest, he was probably my favorite character. <3 ;___;

Funny you should ask this. I got my dad to watch it. When I asked him to drive me to the bookstore so I could buy the first volume of Death Note, in the car, he asked me what it was about. I told him, and he seemed interested, and said he would watch it when it aired on adultswim. (was a few days before) He liked the first episode, then suddenly stopped watching it. Ah well, he liked it, but then stopped. He seemed interested in Bleach, too. xD

I know, but the first episode is and it kinda is at parts later. But yeah. She said that she doesn't like things(or shows) that "praise" evilness. I know that it isn't completely dark, but I'm not sure what she thinks. We told her that the first ep would be the darkest, so she's ready.

May I join the club? :)

Here are my answers to some of the topics:

What got you into Death Note?
My brothers D: They were downloading a subbed version of the anime and then decided to share it with me..... and I loved it :3

Who are your favorite characters and why?
Light, L and Matsuda

Light because I like how he deals with (almost) every situation that might make others think that he´s Kira and I love his "evil laugh".
L because he is smart, wierd, and he sits like me when I´m using my computer.
Matsuda because... err..... he is Matsuda!!


And also Mikami because he becomes insane after getting the Death Note and he uses glasses 8D


Did you see the series via anime or Manga or both? If both, which do you prefer?
Anime; I´ve only read 2 manga chapters.

Do any of you have the Death Note Novel: Death Note: Another Note the BB Murder Cases?
Unfortunaly, no. Here where I live the chance of getting it is extremely low (unless there´s an anime convention).

Which side would you be on? Kira or the SPK?
As many have already said, I think I would also support Kira; even if killing people was wrong or not, the idea of a world without criminals would make me choose his side.

Have you convinced any friends to watch it? If so, how?
Yes, I conviced my best friend to watch it after telling her what was it about, and she became a L fangirl o_O;
She randomly says in our conversations: Why did L died? :(
I told a guy at my classroom about the anime, but I don´t know if he actually got into it.

Yes. I've seen many different anime, and this is the only one that has made me want to watch the next episode even if I had to go to bed/get off the computer. The plot was so well made. So yeah, it's the best anime of all time. FMA comes close, but it's not as good or better than it.

It is one of my favorites, no doubt. As for my favorite ever, no. Fullmetal Alchemist beats it by a long shot.

Whatever you say, but Death Note is better. It started off great and stayed awesome. FMA was decent when it started and slowly got better. But meh, if that's what you like, i won't try to force you to change your mind. XP

I'll answer this when I'm not as tired. XP Pretty straight forward topic. I won't judge you on how you answer. There isn't necessarilly a right or wrong answer. I'm just interested to see what you guys would do.

To be honest, I'd probably use it to wipe out the worst of criminals like Light, However, minor ones probably not. Mostly just those who either killed people or put others through extreme torture. But meh. I really don't know other than that. I wouldn't use it to kill people I hate. So yeah.......Just felt like saying that. XP

L was an original character, an unusual person with funny quirks and an interesting taste in food. Creating Near who was just like him except for the food switched with toys thing really took away from L's originality. That's all. If Near was the only one and (if God forbid) L didn't exist, then Near probably wouldn't bother me so much.

And the manga's ending was a lot better. OH NOEZ, SPOILERS.

At least in the manga's ending, Light has to suffer by dying in front of everyone with an instantious death. In the anime, he gets to run away and die alone. NO FAIR. I WANT LIGHT TO SUFFER.

What did you think of Mello and Near's English voices?

I thought they were either going to make Near's voice too whiny or too masculine, but they got it supridingly perfect for me. As far as sounding childish while still retaining awesomeness can be in English. Mello still has the deep voice from the original I can't get used to, probably cause I imagined him having this sort of high, anxious sounding voice instead when I saw his facial expressions in the magna.

Mimori I always thought it would be even more humiliating for Light since, unlike the manga, he didn't have this huge, elaborate death in front of everyone, and ended up pitiably dying on a stairwell. It all depends on how you look at it, though.

Does it have the Death Note manga? XP I mean, it has all the extra stuff like "Anime profiles" and stuffs....All they have of Death Note is one of each volume.(two of the first) But meh....XP


Thanks for the offer, butpeople have already given me sites. XP I find it easier to just get the manga and read it on the couch instead of hogging the computer and pissing off my siblings. XPNope - my library has no manga. D: I'm a sad person.


Aww, just piss off your siblings. This is Death Note were talking about here. XD

Hello, I’d like to join… wow, so many topics to reply to…

What got you into Death Note? (or made you watch it/read the manga?)
I found the Death Note Manga via a preview in Shonen Jump. It was awesomeness, so I bought the first volume… my latest was volume 9… I watch the anime occasionally, but L’s a little more emo than I expected. I’m so looking forward to the English release of the movie.

Who are your favorite characters and why?
L, & Ryuk, they’re just different. Same reason I was the only Invader Zim fan that liked Dib… I even bought the depressed smiley shirt at hot topic. Misa is really cute too, and not just by looks… especially in the anime.

Did you see the series via anime or Manga or both? If both, which do you prefer?
Well, I usually only get to see it from the Manga, but I like the unique scenes in the anime.

Did you think that Light had the right intentions to cleanse the world?
… purge the world of evil, risk becoming the only evil, the only open evil… is evil right, can evil be right? If there is no good and Evil, can their be any right? Seriously, I’m not sure… the series makes you think, I like that…

(I’m assuming this one is safe without spoilers now)
Do you think the anime/manga took a fall after L was killed off?
I was worried that it would go down hill at first, but it really kept up it’s exciting pace. I was also kind of sad, I liked L. Near has the problem of being even more childish than L, and very autistic. I’m not sure L was supposed to be autistic, but I think Near is.

Who do you think that series could have done without?
I like it the way it is, change it and it won’t be that same thing I liked…

Is Death Note your favorite manga/anime of all time?
It’s pretty high on my list…

If you randomely found a Death Note, how would you use it?
I want to finish the series before I answer that, there’s something bothering me on that…

New person, that's a new one... so it's safe to assume that you don't know what I look like, so if you're Killa then I'm pretty safe...

Oh, Topic: Do you prefer Kira, the english translation which is also a real name, or the author's intended name Killa, as seen in the manga art? (Keep in mind, that in Japanese a sound somewhere between R and L is used, so words can be translated either way.)

It bothered me when I spotted that in the Manga...

Easily Kira. It makes more sense than Killa. It makes them sound like they're trying to be sarcastic or something. XD

Thanks... ;D

I think the reason Killa makes more sense to me is the comment Light makes, he say that he doesn't like how obviously it it derived from Killer, and Kira was an existing name before any of this happened. But since the official translation is Kira... I'll just have to accept it if I want to read or watch the story in English...

Pikawho?
4th May 2008, 1:34 AM
I always say new person" to people who just joined a club....>_>

Kira. Although it does make more sense having "killa" when Light talked about it being derived. But yeah, Kira is more awesome by a longshot. Calling him "killa" would've made the series worse ain a sense that it's being cute....I bet none of that made sense....

edit: Author's intent? I don't think so. I just remembered, you know when Misa made those tapes and sent them into Sakura TV? The name on the screen was clearly "KIRA". Just wanted to bring that up....>_>

Mimori Kiryu
5th May 2008, 6:58 AM
Yeah, it doesn't say anywhere in How To Read 13 about Ohba-sensei or Obata-sensei originally wanting 'Killa'. :/ I think they always intended Kira but because of the way r's are pronounced, the script might've said 'Killa' and the actors had to try to roll their r's. D: I don't really know.


And onto topic of the English dubbed, the episode Saturday was pretty interesting. The trade was drawn out well and it was very suspenseful (even if I'd seen it before). Mello's voice actor continues to impress me, as well as Near's. I honestly think that English actors/actresses are getting a lot better over time - they always continue to improve. It's really awesome. ;D I can't wait for the next episode next Saturday:

Of course, next week, I believe is the time that Light's dad dies. I'm really excited to see this just to see Brad Swaile's acting. He's been perfect for Light since the beginning, but I really want to see how much of a convincing acting job he did on this part of the series since Light could possibly be lying about crying for his father. I know and really believe that Brad could do a good job. ^^;

Good logic, except those parts were changed during translation. (I am a comic artist) They caught it on the internet page and on the TV screens pages because when comics/manga becuase they were text, they take the original text-less art and add the translated words. It’s not that hard to edit fonts. But they missed it in the letters that Light ‘sends’ to L (via suicide notes), because they were part of the original image. Have a look for yourselves. (edit: Vol. 1; pages, 162, 164, & 169)

D: I don't really know. [/spoiler]

I haven’t read 13, but I supposed assuming that it was his intent was a little excessive. He could merely have liked that way two Ls looked better, or in fact not known there to be a difference. Still it was Killa...

And Vampirate, we were disagreeing and I still don't agree with you unless you have undeniable proof. Internet scantalations don't prove anything because they're done by fans. Fans could say anything, really. I just didn't want it to turn into an arguement. That's all.

It's pretty much the same thing as the anime. Only subtle differences. I think the anime is more powerful, though.

I hadn't seen this and I tell you, this makes me laugh. Literally, I laughed out loud. So loud I'm glad my family isn't here. This is so laughable. I mean, how far away did Matsuda and the others get before Light started screaming to L that he finally won? Seriously, if he's yelling that loud, I'm pretty sure someone would've heard it. This is basically Light flaunting again to all of the L fangirls. XD That's how I see it. Little Matsuda though makes me sad. ;__; It looked like he wanted to cry. *hugs*

As for L's funeral... I saw it a while ago, *Re-watches*.

Lawl. This thing still cracks me up. I like the concept of them giving L a funeral, I mean, they didn't just forget (Unlike poor Soichiro, anybody notice how when he died, Light cried a bit, and then he wasn't mentioned again until Matsuda's spazzo shooting of Light). But yeah, Light, get a grip, you put so much effort into not leaving any evidence behind, but I'm SURE somebody is going to notice if you start laughing in the middle of a graveyard D: Lol, like Mimori Kiryu said, Matsuda was so cuddly there ^^.

It's not subbed sadly, but if you've seen the regular scene in the series, you should grasp what they're talking about. I find it funny that the link has the word 'names' in it and they're talking about Kira. hahahaha.

http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=tBNBMtLCceY <~ An alternate ending using existing images of the manga to create something new. It's in manga form and it contains spoilers. I found it pretty interesting.

http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=KLNgJeYHi28&NR=1 <~ Let me know what you think of this video. It's hilarious.

http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=dnNDCVivxwQ <~ Ignore the title as it is wrong, but watch this. It's a trailer to the series or a prequal shot. I have to say this is pretty intriguing too.

Have you ever heard a song that reminded you of Death Note?

omg, I think Breaking Benjamin watched Death Note sometimes. Listen to their songs, Evil Angel (think of how Light sees himself as a God but his killing is actually evil) and Dance with the Devil (think of this song as sung by L and his dance or battle to defeat Light, or the devil).

I creeps me out how well these songs fit. o.o;

And I can't wait until the next episode. We're getting into the good stuff now and omg, Mello's voice actors continues to impress me. <3 He's so perfect for him that I squeal every time Mello comes on screen (I'd do that anyway, even if I couldn't hear the voices. XD). And you're right, the anime does skip over some things that were in the manga, but it keeps the same overall balance, which rules. :D I love Death Note to bits... yayayayay. <3

My mom was shopping for my b-day (which is Tuesday! *excited*) and she came into see me at work. She told me she saw something at a local store that had Death Note on it and was tempted to buy it for me. I was familiar with the store and tried to guess, but of course, she wasn't going to tell me. D: I don't know if I can wait another day! GAH! I...Must....KNOW!

Oh, and Pikawho, you forgot Alumina on that smarkalkely list of yours. lol

I think I have a topic that everyone can answer:

What merchandise of Death Note do you own? or, if you don't have any, What Death Note merchandise do you wish you owned?

I have a wallscroll of the rules with Light and Misa on it and Ryuk is in the background. You can only really see his eyes. I, of course, own all of the manga, along with How to Read 13 and the L novel. I have all the English episodes recorded to date and I'm trying to make a replica of the Death Note owned by Light just to have. XD I also have a lot of anime magazine with Light on the front. hahahaha.

Haven't posted in this club in a long time.

What merchandise of Death Note do you own? or, if you don't have any, What Death Note merchandise do you wish you owned?

I have all the manga (finally found 11 today) >D>D>D, I have the novel, a few shirts, the three DVDs with the figures. (needs Gelus one). A Ryuk wristband which I always wear.

I think thats it.

I would love to join. I read thru really quick to see what types of questions where asked. I'm sure I'll answer them all with time, but for now we'll start with this one.

What Death Note merchandise do you own?
Currently I have: the English manga set; including 13 "How To Read", the first 4 anime DVD's, one of the PVC figure sets, a t-shirt, the May '08 issue of Fangorea; it features an article about the movie, the Cosplay steel Death Note pen, the dog-tag necklace, and a Death Note.

I see there is some question to the size of the Death Note. There are three sizes out there you can find.
The Replica Size - 10.3" by 7.3" (I would love to get this one.)
The Anime Size - 8.1" by 5.5" (This is the one I have.)
The Small Size - 5.5" by 4.1"

Did you all know there are two sizes of Misa's (Gelus) Death Note, the anime and replica sizes.
I would love so much to get the replica size.

I have the following items being sent to me: All 3 Original Sound Track CD's; from the anime, Death Note: The Last Name Original Sound Track CD, The Last Name Tribute CD, the novel; Death Note: Another Note, and the book; Death Note: Fatally Fun Facts.

I have the following pre-ordered: the 5th anime DVD and the Death Note movie DVD.

Well, I guess that's it for now. If yall really love DN as much as I do, PM me I've got something to share with you. Oh and could someone please PM me the SPOILER code, thanks.

Maybe.....Is it just me or did it seem that the movie seemed to be making fun of the actual series? I dunno...That's the feeling I got.....It kinda is because of the way that we as English speaking people percept it. As I watched the movie with the English dub over, I have to say they worked hard and really impressed me, especially Brad Swaile (Light) and Alessandro Juliani (L). It was amazing. <3 It sucks though that there's a sequel to it. I kinda wish it was all together instead of separate. ;____;


Oh! And there were cosplayers when we went. XD The best group was the one that had everyone: Light, L, Misa and Ryuk. This guy had totally painted his face black/white and had feathers on his shoulders to resemble wings. He even carried an apple with him. XD It was hilarious! The L and Light were handcuffed together and Light was carrying a Death Note (anime size) and Misa had hers but it was movie size with Gelus's book. It was f*cking awesome. The Light left before I could get a picture of him, but I took Ryuk, Misa and L's picture on my cell phone. XD It was so cool. :D

It's called, L: Change the WorLd.
It focuses on the last 23 days of L's life-span to solve the case that threaten the world.

I didn't get a chance to go last night and I have to work tonight. I guess I'll have to wait until September to see it. :( I wonder how long it will be before L: Change the WorLd and Death Note the Last Name come here to the US on DVD.

Yes, I did know of the other movie. I haven't seen the second yet. But yes, I have heard of the third one. I actually saw a scene of it on youtube. It was when L dies. It wasn't subbed, though....Light and L were the only ones in the room.

edit: New Topic: Which DN character do you think you look the most like?

Misa-Misa-chan! 8D *shot* Actually, I think that I kinda look like Raye Penber. We have similar eyes/facial stuffs so he could actually be what I might look like when I'm older. 8D

It's soooooooo cute~ I'd like to know how long it will be for the next two movies come too, and they already have some scenes dubbed for it and there's a link on the English official website, but there's no information. :(

I would have to say Mello. We both have the same haircut and color. I would have to say mine is a little longer. I never really can tell what color his eyes are. They must be hazel. I swear I've seen then yellow, brown, blue and sometimes almost black, mine are blue. We both also have basically the same facial features. I love my chocolate bars, but mine have got to be dark, the darker the better.

Which DN character do you think you look the most like?

Well, I've never really though I looked like any of them. It's hard to say because it's mostly Japanese and American men, and a few girls who are pracitcally models. Maybe Matt, if he were a girl and sort of fat...

I'm so mad! My sister told me today that Death Note is playing in the Theater 20 minutes away from my church. Apparantly a guy we know went to see it the other day....Tomorrow is the last night. She said that she would've wanted to go(with me) but her show's opening night is tomorrow. I'm not too bummed, but it sucks since it was actually playing at a theater somewhat near us.....XD She's not a fan of Death Note(yet) but she does want to watch the series with me at some point. We watched the first half of the movie once.....

So yeah. Just wanted to talk about myself for a bit there. XP But yeah. I didn't know that the guy watched Death Note. I know that he is an anime fan, but I never knew that he liked DN. XD

I think Mello's eyes appear blue in the anime. Well, in all those scenes where they close up on his eyes when he's scaring Sidoh and things, his eyes are blue.

His eyes are a harsh color of blue/green. At least that's what I think.

Mimori Kiryu

Mello's eyes are more of a hazel which crosses from blue to green and every shade inbetween those two. ;D It says so in the How to Read 13 book.

I had to catch the reshowing, but I squealed like a fangirl whenever Mikami appeared on the screen. <333333 He is my second favorite character besides Mello. I luv him so. And the best part? His voice actor. I think I influenced it too much because I've been watching a lot of Inuyasha lately and been fangirling over Miroku (as usual, hahahahaha) and when Mikami started saying, "Delete." over and over again, I nearly screamed.

Well, I was curious if you preferred the manga's ending over the anime's. I must say that I do. Light suffering and dying in front of everyone was much better than him getting to run away and hide while he died. <.<; That bastard deserved to die in front of all the people he thought he could so easily control.

But will Kira really be a Death God? I heard he will be in a "Season 2" of DN

I think not:

In the DN universe humans that die go to Mu (become nothing), therefore Light is gone and he's not suppose to come back in any form. I was fan speculation that he might become a Death God came from the fact that Ryuk said he couldn't go to heaven or hell, but later we learn Ryuk said that becuase in the DN universe there is no heaven or hell.

^Dispite there being a Land of the Dead in the orginal pilot... heck, there was a death eraser...

Mimori Kiryu
27th May 2008, 8:09 PM
But will Kira really be a Death God? I heard he will be in a "Season 2" of DNThere is no such thing as a season 2 of Death Note. If there is, Ohba and Obata haven't acknowledged it and it probably won't be very good since I think the series ending when it did was perfect. And Kira can't be a Death God because when he died, as VampirateMace said, he goes into nothingness since he used the Death Note. It's just as Ryuk said - a user of a Death Note can not go to heaven or hell - simply nothingness.

This is the second person who mentioned that there will be a Season 2 of Death Note. I don't think there will be, and where are people finding this out?

I am re-reading through Death Note while I await another manga I need to buy. I am so obsessed with Death Note, I really need to get obsessed over something else. D: Not that I am saying obsessing over Death Note is bad, but I just want to enjoy other mangas/animes atm.

Good to see that you guys are getting along pretty well. 8D

And no, a certain someone does not become a Shinigami. If you read the manga, you know what happened to that certain someone. 8D

And no, I haven't heard of a second series of Death Note. It's possible, but unlikely. And for those of your who are saying that there'll be a second season, it's currently in the second season. XP Series is the more better word to use. 8P

Deathnote is great. It is probably my favourite anime second to Bleach. The thought, the planning and scheming that goes into it is simply mind boggling. I have a question about the Deathnote, if anyone can answer, that would be great.

If you were to write someone's name in the Deathnote and made their cause of death some really contagious disease (Black plague maybe), would other people be infected as well?

Pikawho?
29th May 2008, 5:17 AM
Ask the freaking author that one. XP I'd assume that they'd simply die of a heart attack. I'm sure that there was a rule in one of the mangas that covered all the crap with diseases.....Good question. But I think that it wouldn't happen since other people might die as an effect. Actually, it would work if you specify that no one else would catch it.

Consider yourself joined. 8D Answer any of the topics that you feel like answering.

Mimori Kiryu

Gah! Not another Near lover...geez. Just kiddin'


And about the disease thing, didn't Kira do that to one of L's subordinates? I can't remember which one, but I think it only happened in the manga... *goes to look* Yeah, it's in volume seven. Aiber, one of the undercover detectives for L, died after L did in the passing of time. It says he succumed to liver cancer. Unless Kira did that, I don't see a reason as to why they'd mention it. As for the black plague, I don't think that could happen anymore since it no longer 'exists'.

VampirateMace
29th May 2008, 6:24 AM
Acturally I think the black plague still exists... there just aren't epdemic outbreaks anymore due to cleaner living conditions an a reduction in the black rat population...

Anyways you can't use a death note to kill someone in a way that will cause the deaths of other people. (a contagious disease would do this) In these instances they just die of heart attack...

O.o... apparently I'm a DN dictonary now... I remmber only the most useless stuff...

I've been spotting this club for a while and I was thinking about joining. So I've decided to join(wow, that was a quick decision)

As to answer your question. I've heard about it from a bunch of people on a different type of forum. They talked a lot about the show and I decidedto watch the first few episodes and I was hooked. I'm currently on episode 10 or 11 and It is so effing good...

I even money bribed ($2.50) my friend if he watched a whole episode of death note with me. Miraculously I kept my $2.50. because We were at someone's house and I had to go.

So now I've read all the manga, haven't seen any of the anime [ I never watch anime with the exception of Bleach and Pokemon] and don't want to either [ unless there is somthing in the anime that wasn't in the manga and it is funny] and I totally love death note and L and wish to join.

Everyone~

Hi! I'm gone for a few days and now I have 2 pages of reading to catch up on. I got all my new DN goods in the mail and I can't be happier. I just loved this weeks anime episode with Mikami. Just his story alone and how he was chosen to be the proxy for Light. I also wanted to welcome the new member to the club. Oh and one last thing before I have to run, my Death Note is now Open. :)

That's not a threat right?

[Khamul] I don't see any reason for you to be in trouble... athought I believe L's gesture is a bad word in American sign-language, just a warning. I know he does it in the series, but it's Japanese, so it's not like they'd know.

You serious? XD I'd ask my mom(fluent in sign-language) but then again I wouldn't want to get attacked for it. XP But yeah, I don't see a reason to kick you out.(yet)

Yeah, but it's not like it Khamul's fault in any way, he/she had no way to know I'm sure...

Also this got me thinking about drawing up some banners...

You also need to think, no one will really care since he did that in the anime and no one noticed. He wasn't trying to do sign-language(I don't think) it was kinda a gesture of "Come join me" or something like that.

Yay! More banners! 8D

Wait, what!? I never knew what L did was offensive, how is it offensive?
I'll take it off at your command, sir.

Oh....L....I thought you said Light for some reason....XD

It's not offensive. You don't need to take it off. That's like his freaking trademark.

Currently I'm on epi 12. The suspense is driving me nuts. I finally found out that there's a a "fake" Kira....

Hi there!

This thread caught my eye while reading one of Mimori's posts in another thread. So, may I join? I probably won't be as frequent as the other members, but I'm willing to post my thoughts on Death Note here.

Lastly, I got into Death Note when I saw one of my friends reading a Death Note manga. Seeing as it looked like a neat manga to read, I bought volume one at a Borders store. Instantly hooked, I went to my library to check out several volumes. I hadn't fully read the entire series yet, but I'm catching on the story by scanning through one of my friend's books. I hadn't watched the anime yet, but have the anime soundtracks. And it's so frekking awesome. So is Matsuda.

I could go on for hours, but I would just annoy all of you. So...may I join your club?

No command at all, just a half-hearted warning... I'm not even sure what makes it offensive...

Okay, anyways... I sketched up some banners in the freetime I had today... so here they are... feel free to use them

or not...

Ryuk - I'll have to do another one with an apple...

L - well, this one isn't the best...

Mellow and Near - the epic battle, choose your side!

Um... - well it's an undead person inspired by DN...

The Mello/Near Banner looks nice, but I've always pictured Mello with a maroon "Aura".
The Undead person looks cool, it somehow makes me think that this is what Kira would look like as a Death God. Coolio.

Yeah... I was thinking of a crimson, but I didn't want to go that dark with the light blue on the other side and drowning out the line art... I also didn't want to end up with a Star Wars thing going on, cause it wasn't about good or bad...

I do wonder what Kira would look like if he'd been given that honor... I kind of wish we could read the rest of the pilot series to see how that would have turned out...

I'm on Mello's side! 8D Totally, forever and ever and ever and ever.


I love all of the banners. <3 So awesome. I need to get off my lazy arse and make some, but since I'm out of school *forever. ;_;* I no longer have the lovable Adobe Photoshop CS. I ish sad.


And Saturday's episode was the bomb. Takeda is just annoying though, because she's supposed to be so damn smart, but she falls for Light's 'omgiluvyou' speech. Geez, woman, open your freaking eyes. <.<; That's the only thing I think I might really dislike about DN. All the women are stupid, except for Naomi, and she was still nicked by Kira. We need to be represented. D:


...wait, I'm talking in a club full of men, aren't I? crap. (other than VM and myself, i mean....)

I think there;s a conspiracy under Death Note to discriminating women, well you'll never really know since there's only 3 of them other than that woman on Near's team. Well at least they created Matsuda to balance the scales XD.

VampirateMace
3rd June 2008, 6:41 PM
Acturally if I remmber right, in How To Read one of them says something about feeling bad about most the women being stupid... I'm not sure though, I'd have to go look...

Pikawho?
3rd June 2008, 11:49 PM
Wait...Women aren't usually that stupid? o.O J/k I agree with you. Only Misa should've been really stupid. I mean, she's a model, after all.(not to mention blonde. >_>) I didn't necessarilly see a problem with it. But then again, it's all a matter of opinion. I'm not female so I wouldn't know....>_> (or care)


The banners: Better than anything I could've made, but I don't really like them....:/ Good effort, though. They'll still be in the first post. I just felt like stating my opinion...>_>
