Death Note BD 1080p Dual Audio Enhanced BD HEVC
A shinigami, as a god of death, can kill any person—provided they see their victim’s face and write their victim’s name in a notebook called a Death Note. One day, Ryuk, bored by the shinigami lifestyle and interested in seeing how a human would use a Death Note, drops one into the human realm.
High school student and prodigy Light Yagami stumbles upon the Death Note and—since he deplores the state of the world—tests the deadly notebook by writing a criminal’s name in it. When the criminal dies immediately following his experiment with the Death Note, Light is greatly surprised and quickly recognizes how devastating the power that has fallen into his hands could be.
With this divine capability, Light decides to extinguish all criminals in order to build a new world where crime does not exist and people worship him as a god. Police, however, quickly discover that a serial killer is targeting criminals and, consequently, try to apprehend the culprit. To do this, the Japanese investigators count on the assistance of the best detective in the world: a young and eccentric man known only by the name of L.

One of the things I loved about Death Note is I felt the need to pay attention. If you don’t, you’re going to miss what’s going on — and not only did I need to pay attention, I wanted to. Something I haven’t experienced in an anime for a long time. The story was unique, original, intriguing, and really makes you rethink your own morals and views on the world.I personally loved the motifs, themes and symbols seen in the anime — they’re very original and really reflect the plot and just make you say, wow. How cool.
I can’t really elaborate much on the art and animation seen in Death Note. To reflect the dark plot, bright colors were rarely used which I view a plus, animation flowed nicely for the most part and the hair especially I think was well-animated and looked nice. Nothing really spectacular about it though. Very good art, but nothing more, nothing less.
A very good bonus that I fear some may overlook in Death Note was the sound and music. Sure, I didn’t personally like the second opening all that much but it’s incredibly fitting to the series and all the animation in each opening and ending themes are very nice and original. However, the real thing I want to touch on here is the amazing job done by the voice actors. Most notably Mamoru Miyano’s role as Light Yagami. It was absolutely stunning and most excellent.
Oh, the characters. I can almost guarantee you’ll come to love one and loathe another. The characters are original and full of life as opposed to boring archetypes that I seem to be seeing more of everyday in anime. Not only that, but Death Note has easily brought me some of the most unique characters I’ve ever seen an anime, hands down, which I believe to be a very good thing.
I enjoyed every single episode and every single minute of it. To this date, Death Note stands as on of my all time favorites. It brought a new light to something I didn’t think was possible to be in an anime with wonderful characters, a unique and original plot that makes you really think, and just an overall terrific thrill ride.
