Death Note

I just reached the end of an Anime series called Death Note. With this series I regained the interest in Anime I  used to have in earlier days.

Death Note is a series that, at least for me, can compete with, for example Prison Break. It is about a prodigy boy that finds a mysterious notepad  which turns out to be a Death Note. The Death Note comes from the Shinigami (death god) world and will kill the person whose name is written on it (the writer must have the victim’s face on mind so people with the same name are not killed by mistake).

With a bunch of rules written on it, Death Note gives Raito Yagami the power to be a new justice “god”. At least it is what he’s ambition.

I won’t say more except that this is one of the most impressive stories I watched.
