    Default The Official SPP Death Note Thread.

    Since we've had some thread redundancy on this series, I'm gonna make a Death Note thread, where everything Death Note will be discussed here.

    Meaning questions, episode discussion and everything else.

    No more Death Note threads after this one.

    So yeah... discuss away.

    Which is why no one enjoys a spoil sport.

    Well, I didn't mean too. I've been dancing around on eggshells everytime we talk about Death Note for about a year now while waiting for her to hurry up and finish the series. It just kinda... slipped.

    I got spoiled the ending by some girl who couldn't keep her mouth shut. I told her not to spoil the ending, as I was nearing it, and she had finished it, and yet, she said it. Oh well, I kinda predicted it was going to happen anyways.

    How can a major spoiler to one of the most popular animated series "kinda slip"?

    I can understand intentional spoiler idiocy on forums, but really.

    Ah, Death Note. The first anime I already knew everything about and it wasn't from fansubs. I bought the manga first and enjoyed the series very well. It was different than what I was used to (main character fighting evil) and I really loved the characters, plot and mostly, the DRAMA. It was so much more dramatic with almost no comedy that it was hard to read without laughing at things that weren't funny.

    It's hard to discuss the anime version of Death Note because I detested the ending. I thouroughly hate the ending. I'll put my semi-rant in spoilers because....I can.

        Spoiler:- I doubt anyone will read this...:


    ^That was longer than intended. Damn Death Note makes me ramble.

    Go to your local book store and pick up the last manga issue. You'll enjoy it much, much more.

    ^ At least you finally learned.

    Anyways, I only liked the series up until episode 25. It wasn't all that hot to me after that.

    I still prefer the manga series over the anime.

    Mello and Near arc wasn't that good to me. I mean, it had its perks(not really) and Near is a wannabe L. They should have atleast changed his character to be more of his own person like Mello was. Thats the only thing in Death Note that really gets me mad, and Takada, I hate that b*tch.

    That's another thing that bothers the **** out of me. Every girl in the series is portrayed as either an idiot, dumb, blind (not in the literal sence) or just boring. Takada (GAG), Misa, Naomi, that one lady that worked for L...Wedy?, and Near's subordinate...who's name slips my mind. All of them were shown as weak and stupid because of their sex. I don't understand it. >___< Naomi and Near's subordinate almost got away from the crap of the others but Naomi was treated by her husband as weak because she was his wife and Near's subordinate was used to trick Mello because she was a woman and there for, appeared weaker than anyone else.

    Don't get me started on Near. I really hate his character. And besides, there can be no other character that is as epically awesome as Mello.

    I noticed this, but maybe he didn't want her getting killed by Kira. So he was trying to protect her.

    I think they could've extended the plot, and answered a lot of the questions... Oh well. The series was absolutely genius.








    I'm a rather lovable individual

    I wonder if the creators of Death Note made Near to get everyone ****** off. I mean, of the people who like Death Note that I talk too, everyone hates him, cause of his wannabe-ness. Maybe the creator did this for a reason.

    Mello is epic, I really wish he killed off Light. =[

    What questions? The only ones I can think of was, "What happened to Misa?" but we already know the answer thanks to "How to Read 13".

    That's another thing. I understand if he wanted to protect her, but still. She was a policewoman; she knows how to defend herself. It just made me feel like he didn't believe she could - which was crap.

    What questions are you talking about? I thought the ending in both the anime and manga was perfect and closed the series very well.

    My friend likes Near because he looks like L and she's probably the biggest L fan I know. I don't understand how she likes him. :[

    And omg yes, Mello is epic. EPIC.

    Well, I didn't exactly just slip out the entire ending. We were talking about Matsuda and something I had read in How to Read: Death Note and we were just rambling on about him and stuff he'd done and I think I said something like

    Really, for avoiding mentioning ANY spoilers from episode 24 onwards, I did pretty good, considering it's been about a year since she'd watch Death Note.

    Yeah, frankly all that makes the anime far more viewable compared to the manga.

    Oh, god, I love all the dramatic gestures they pull off in the anime. The scenes from the first episode (may have been the second one) where Light is writing in the Death Note always makes me laugh. Same with his chip-eating. Mikami does this too. xD He's practically dancing around the room.

    That, and the tennis match between L and Light always makes me laugh. They overthink it way too much.

    Ah Death Note, have yet to read your Manga. Got the first two movies, seen the third one. For Anything to Movie, even with the B-grade Special effects, make for some enjoyable movies. I realy could care less what some otakus may say, they are quite kind to the source material. Am not looking forward to that rumored western version though. Bad casting and "creative choices" will probably kill it.

    As for the Anime, upto vol 4, the interigation part. Aside from Light's VA, I like it. He makes Light realy an unlikable fellow at times.

    Well, the DN movie technically already came out, it had a limited release in theaters. I'm looking forward to it, actually. It'll probably have a dub/sub switch, and the DN dub is actually pretty good.

    I've seen the first movie and a little bit of 2, both subbed.

    I think the movies where made before the anime.

    I don't think they were. They just follow an alternate storyline. I could be wrong, though.
