“This world is rotten, and those who are making it rot deserve to die. Someone has to do it, so why not me?” – Light Yagami
Death Note is an anime that anyone could watch and know why is one of the most serious series and best-animated shows out there. Not relying on combat scenes like other animes, it is a fresh change of pace that is unpredictable, clever and witty. One interesting aspect of this story is how the protagonist and L take the concept of morality and compare and contrast each other in a game of cat and mouse.
Unlike its crappy Netflix live-action adaptation, when you think it can’t go any deeper in its development, it does. And with the start of each episode, the more you become hooked. Obviously, this show is not for everyone because of its dark nature. Regardless, its portrayal of absolute power from a notebook that can kill anyone by writing their name in it is just one of the reasons why I highly recommend this tv show.
To conclude this review, psychologically this show provokes interesting thought. You will understand the consequences the more you watch as the story adds more realistic states to characters choices. Watch and judge it for yourself and you will know my rating of it is justified and possibly lower than you think it deserves.
