It is one of the series you can suggest to your friends who are not an anime fan this will surely blow their minds. It’s a good starter to the anime world the world of otakus.


Death Note is a  manga series written by TsugumiOhba and illustrated by Takeshi Obata. The story follows around Light Yagami, a high school student who stumbles across a mysterious otherworldly notebook: the “Death Note”, which belonged to the Shinigami Ryuk(God of Death), and grants its user the power to kill anyone whose name and face he knows. The series centers around Light’s subsequent attempts to use the Death Note to change the world into a utopian society( the world of “Kira”) without crime and the subsequent efforts of a special task-force of law enforcement officials, consisting of members of the Japanese police agency led by L, a reclusive international criminal profiler, to apprehend him and end his reign of terror.

The thrill and suspense in this anime is on a whole another level. From the start to the end you won’t get bored even for a second. This anime is perfect for binge-watching.

Pros and cons-


Death note is an absolute Entertainment packed anime that any Otaku will crave for. The thrills, suspense, action, and mind-blowing twists will definitely make you and Otaku if you are not already. Besides the madness, profanity, and a lot of violence; the plots and the character development is great.


As it is the most popular anime in the Anime world it is also hated and banned in some countries such as China and New Mexico. Though the violence in this anime is well under the limit it had a bad effect on the mindset of young children. In some cases, the small kids made their own death note and wrote the names of the people they wanted to be dead; which made some countries ban this show from broadcasting.

Movie and TV series adaptations-

Coming to the topic about the movies that are made on Death note. In recent years due to the growing popularity of Death note.

Netflix launched the Death note TV series but due to this some of the otakus got offended because it could not meet the expectations of the viewers after watching the anime version. I personally think that it is too hard to convert the anime series to the TV series because of the real-life limitations. But the movie and TV series director really tried their best. If you have watched the movie or TV series please share your views in the comment section.
