About this deal

In December 2009, two students at an elementary school in Oklahoma were disciplined for a "Death Note" with the names and descriptions of deaths of two girls that had angered them.

On July 26, 2017, Starz announced that they would be offering episodes of the series for their video on demand service starting on August 1 of that same year. In 2006, Japanese fans pointed out the similarities between Death Note and the 1973 one-shot manga The Miraculous Notebook ( 不思議な手帖) by Shigeru Mizuki.The series was adapted into three live-action films released in Japan in June, November 2006, and February 2008, and a television drama in 2015.

Bittersweet Ending: Light's quest for godhood ends in disaster, and he meets a brutal and heartwrenching end, as do the other Kiras and their allies.

The Note seems to operate on the number 4: 40 seconds or 400 seconds until the victim dies, you get four tries to spell the victim's name right, and so on. In fact, the only realistic name in the novel is Blackberry Brown — considering names such as Believe Bridesmaid, Backyard Bottomslash, Quarter Queen and Blues-harp Babysplit, "Blackberry Brown" really does sound normal in comparison. He concluded that Light's presence was "the most compelling" aspect; therefore the adaptation chronicles Light's "thoughts and actions as much as possible". After volumes of Death Note were found at the February 2013 suicide of a 15-year-old girl in Yekaterinburg, Russia, a local parents' group began campaigning to regulate all media based on the series, saying that it had an adverse effect on the minds of children. At least one instance was linked to a crime - on September 28, 2007, two notes written with Latin characters stating "Watashi wa Kira dess" [ sic], a mis- transliteration of "I am Kira" ( 私はキラです, Watashi wa Kira desu), [154] were found near the partial remains of a Caucasian male in Belgium.

Araki added that because of the importance of otherwise trivial details, this commentary became crucial to the development of the series. Late in the investigation, L asks Light "Tell me, Light—from the moment you were born, has there ever been a time where you've actually told the truth?

On a whim, he tries out the instructions held within its pages, and discovers that he can kill whomever he wants, however he wants, by writing their name and (optionally) cause of death into the Death Note. The two did not discuss the final chapters with one another and continued talking only with the editor. The 2019 video game Jump Force features Light and Ryuk as non-playable characters, playing a key role in the game's story mode.

Light Yagami, a brilliant-yet-disillusioned Japanese student, sees the notebook fall into his world and picks it up.

The first two films were directed by Shusuke Kaneko and the third was directed by Hideo Nakata and produced by Nippon Television, CG production of all three films were done by Digital Frontier and distributed by Warner Bros. The show was removed from YTV's schedule on July 5, 2008, with its last airing being a rerun of the final episode at 1:30 a. But when he regains the memories of his time as Kira, he doesn't have any moral conflict between his Light and Kira personas; he simply picks up right where he left off pre-amnesia. On Rotten Tomatoes, the show holds an approval rating of 100%, based on 14 reviews, with an average rating of 8.
