Must admit that "death note" is a great manga! I have read the first and the second volume and it's pretty cool!

There's a movie based on the manga, but has only been released in Japan till now! I saw the trailer and seems good!

So has anyone read the mangas or seen the movie and what's your opinion about it?

Oh man! I love me some Death Note. I've read the first 4 volumes, and my rule of only buying one manga per paycheck is killing me.

I have yet to see the movie, and I've also heard there is a Hollywood movie in the works, which is cool, and frightening at the same time.

So who here is watching the new Death Note anime?

It's currently up to 5 episodes, and damn is it good. If you haven't given it a look, go grab some fansubs and get caught up in it.

I'm watching it. Currently watching Toriyama's World subs because they seem to be putting them out faster. There was some other thread in this section where someone brought it up but nobody replied when I asked what subs people were watching, so I figured nobody else was watching it. It's pretty kickass.

I'm watching Toriyama World as well, but I haven't much of a preferance. For the most part, one fansub group is no different from another to me.

The only issue I have with TW is sometimes they use some fancy font, and it's hard to read on my TV, but at least they don't do that thing that Eclipse does where they color the subtitles according to the person's hair color.

Yep. This is one of those new animes I'm enjoying. With NHK ni Youkoso and Kemonozume. I have some of the manga but now I'm waiting to watch the series before reading.

Jeez, you have no idea how much I'm starting to like this anime. I just watched Episode 09 yesterday and got really excited. Looks like the pressure will be going up between L and Light, and should bring up some fairly interesting situations.

Has anyone read the manga? A friend of mine read all of it and told me some stuff. The manga has such incredible twists-L and Light are geniuses, I swear.

I've read it on mangarun, so far, with the exception of how they use short flashbacks in the manga, everything is pretty much exactly like the manga.

Yes, so I've heard. Another friend of mine notes apples have never been so popular before, either. Never that big a motif, anyway, and the anime and LA movies are somewhat different in this regard.

Though I hope the anime keeps following the manga. Sounds like the manga was t3h 1337.

Apples are ready for a rerun. Probably Death Note influence, probably not. The new Nerv logo will tell...

Oh Gainax, I won't ask again what the hell you're doing. I'm afraid of the answer.

After reading a little about the anime and seeing the trailer for the LA movie I am thoroughly intrigued. Is there a release schedule for DVD's of the anime and LAM stateside yet?

Not as of yet. The anime is still being aired. 37 episodes, and only 12 episodes were released so far, so there's still plenty of time for that.

Just download it while it's not lisecened. Same for the movie.

I'm completely bored with it, due to the fact I already read the original manga. I'm enjoying Code Geass more.
He was warrior and mystic, ogre and saint, the fox and the innocent, chivalrous, ruthless, less than a god, more than a man. There is no measuring Muad'Dib's motives by ordinary standards. In the moment of his triumph, he saw the death prepared for him, yet he accepted the treachery. Can you say he did this out of a sense of justice? Whose justice, then? Remember, we speak now of the Muad'Dib who ordered battle drums made from his enemies' skins, the Muad'Dib who denied the conventions of his ducal past with a wave of the hand, saying merely: "I am the Kwisatz Haderach. That is reason enough."

Yeah. It's sort of average, but I like it. The only real complaint I have about the series is Suzaku. He sucks. Moar Lelouch.
