Great example of what makes anime so interesting by LupinThe3rd July 18, 2008 - 8:54 AM PDT

This is an amazing example of what anime is capable of even today. In a sea of mass-produced nonsense, Death Note is truely different, fresh and captivating. If you like smart, complex stories give this a try even if you're new to anime.

If you have a thrist for logic and strangeness, one episode will hook you into this great series. This anime almost worships reasoning and genius.

A personal note; I'm a huge fan of english dubs of anime, but I wasn't too fond of some of the casting choices in this series. I love the actors just not for these roles. I suggest watching the original Japanese with english subtitles first.
