Death Note Story

A shinigami, as the god of death, can kill anyone—provided they see their victim’s face and write their victim’s name in a notebook called the Death Note. One day, Ryuk, bored with the Shinigami lifestyle and interested in seeing how a human would use the Death Note, drops one into the human realm.

High school student and prodigy Light Yagami stumbles upon the Death Note and – as he condemns the state of the world – tests the deadly notebook by writing a criminal’s name in it. When the criminal dies shortly after his experiment with the Death Note, Light is shocked and quickly recognizes how devastating the power that fell into his hands can be.

With this divine ability, Prakash decides to extinguish all the criminals to create a new world where crime does not exist and people worship him as God. The police, however, quickly discover that a serial killer is targeting criminals and, consequently, try to nab the perpetrator. To do so, Japanese investigators rely on the aid of the world’s best detective: a young and eccentric man only known as L.

Death Note Reviews

Death Note is definitely one of the best anime series of all time, as it offers a deeply unique and compelling story that rivals some. I can really say that this is one of the best, if not the best anime I have seen.

The story is unique. A notebook falls from the sky, and the person writing the name in it is able to kill the person pictured in his mind (I omitted the details you don’t care about). It presents the audience with a highly debatable topic based on morality and justice. Yagami Light, who receives this power to kill, uses it. In fact, there are a lot of good reasons but they can be summed up in one thing: this anime is amazing.

The first part of this anime is a masterpiece. The concept itself – the notebook of the Shinigami that grants the person who has the power to kill anyone by writing a person’s name while drawing a face in their mind – is already brilliant because it poses questions from the audience like “what will I do”.

I hate when I see something, and it doesn’t matter if I’m following it or not because nothing pays off. Too many times the credits of a film roll in and I leave a fool of myself thinking “It’s just done? What about ___ and ___? What did I mean by paying attention to the first hour and 20 minutes of this movie?”

Death Note is a solid series with some great moments, but also some equally ridiculous ones. Much of it is one thing: a long-ass cat and mouse game that goes on for and against two major enemies.

It’s pretty boring in the beginning because you’re watching everything, it takes time to get used to, and there’s even an episode that consists almost entirely of two characters wandering around aimlessly. Real boring gets really fast. Once the big turns start coming they’re most impressive, but when they keep coming you’re almost sick.

There’s something so radically developed about Death Note that takes its best quality, story/plot in general, and makes it difficult for viewers to enjoy it once the plot points and equipment are questioned.

To different people, these are things that can either be overlooked or overtake the show altogether, and it really depends on both how seriously one wants to take the Death Note look. and how far they are willing to suspend their disbelief. One of the biggest problems Death Note faces is how seriously it takes the threat of a killer notebook being dropped into the world, and how realistic it takes on the response of police forces.

Since it strives to be as realistic as possible given a fantastic story, the viewer is forced to start watching the show critically, and if you’re like me, it’s worth it as your critical viewing and analysis. can ruin the show, because it has a mystery side, will slowly remove this thing. That’s how much you can ignore plots and points that don’t matter much.

The story is the most important part of a show which spends most of its time focused on developing the plot. As far as I am concerned, the actual story of the show is not bad, the way it is executed, it makes the score so low for me. There are major problems with the way the play is constructed.

The main character is essentially made into something extremely powerful and, in some ways, overpowered, to make it realistic that he will act the way he does in an attempt to establish his ideals. It would be impossible to justify the actions of the main characters, especially after making him a genius, if Death Note wasn’t so grandly unreasonable in its power.

Of course, this force and equally unfair antagonist comes from the “fictional” nature of much of the show. The story centers on L, a detective, trying to find out who is killing people. The problem is that since it’s a supernatural force, the writers are forced to create situations in which L is able to circumvent his ignorance about the presence of supernatural forces and still get close to the perpetrator.

I realize that my opinion is probably unpopular, and I expect it to be a low score given how low I am to a hugely popular show, but I had real problems with the execution and couldn’t see past the problems I saw. . The show could have been even better if they had allowed the plot to proceed in a more believable way, instead of filling in the drama that forced unbelievable events to happen.

One aspect of the show that fans consistently admire is its writing and if you can swallow the cheesy, over-the-top dialogue (“All according to plan,” should be repeated at least a dozen times throughout the series). You’ll definitely be rewarded with fan-favorite gems like the infamous, “I’ll have a potato chip… and eat it!” Scene.
