  Light Yagami is an ace student with great prospects - and he's bored out of his mind. But all that changes when he finds the Death Note, a notebook dropped by a rogue Shinigami death god. Any human whose name is written in the notebook dies, and now Light has vowed to use the power of the Death Note to rid the world of evil. But when criminals begin dropping dead, the authorities send the legendary detective L to track down the killer. With L hot on his heels, will Light lose sight of his noble goal...or his life?
Light tests the boundaries of the Death Note's powers as L and the police begin to close in. Luckily Light's father is the head of the Japanese National Police Agency and leaves vital information about the case lying around the house. With access to his father's files, Light can keep one step ahead of the authorities. But who is the strange man following him, and how can Light guard against enemies whose names he doesn't know?

Personal View:

 I first noticed this series at the book store but never really put to much thought into it. Till I received a request from a close friend. Guess it was his way of getting me to show interest in this series it felt like a challenge and I gladly accepted. This is my first time reading anything like this type of series. I love the detail to the artwork the most. But I also can understand were Light Yagami's views are coming from. Don't we all want a better world? I just think its human nature to not be able to maintain a peaceful life without having some form of crime or such things happening around us.
I'm completely loving the charter Ryuk, hes the shinigami death god... "Evil Laugh" It cracks me up that he pretty much eats apples most the time, or in the one episode hes actually having withdrawals from not eating them like a junky would be from not having their preferred drug. Then theirs miss famous model Misa Amane, whom also has her own shinigami Rem. She becomes the second "Kira" but also has an infatuation with Light. Which ends up making so many problems for him in the overall. Even when he uses her to help him with his plans. She allows her emotions to take the better of her way more then once.
Okay, from all the research I've done thus far on this series. They did actually make a "human" based TV show out of it. "Never watched it" Along with the manga, and anime show. They also made the manga into the "Black Series" which is nothing more then sticking to volumes into one. Guess its just less books to buy. Hopefully I didn't give away to much on this great series. And that you'll become just as addicted to it as I did. Cause Yes, I am so wanting to see more of this show if only they had added at third part!!!
Overall Rating: HARD 5 Stars

Episode One: Rebirth
Original Airdate: October 21, 2007

Outside the grounds of his high school, Light Yagami discovers a notebook that claims to be able to kill anyone whose name and face is known to its owner. He initially dismisses the so-called "Death Note" as a hoax, but, after testing its powers, he discovers that these claims are indeed real. The original owner, a shinigami named Ryuk, approaches Light and explains that the notebook now belongs to him. Since Light is the new owner, he is the only one who can see and interact with Ryuk. The shinigami also says that when Light's time to die comes, Ryuk will be the one to write down his name in his book. Light decides to use the Death Note's power to rid the world of evil and become the God of a new, peaceful world.
Episode Two: Confrontation
Original Airdate: October 28, 2007

As criminals begin dying from inexplicable heart attacks left and right, Interpol convenes to discuss the phenomenon. Unable to come up with an explanation for it, they turn to the world's top-ranked detective, L Lawliet, whose true identity is a well-kept secret. L speaks to the Interpol representatives through a computer and an electronic voice, promising them that they are dealing with mass-murder and that he will soon confront the killer whom the general public has been calling Kira (a play on the Japanese pronunciation of the English word killer). This displeases Light, who has been going to great lengths to keep the Death Note hidden, since learning that Ryuk becomes visible to any who touch the book. L tricks Light into revealing that Kira lives in Japan's Kanto region with a fake television broadcast. Having played right into L's hands, an enraged and humiliated Light swears to eliminate L.
