Rules of Use I:
1. The human whose name is written in this note shall die.
2. This note will not take effect unless the writer has the person’s face in their mind when writing his/her name. Therefore, people sharing the same name will not be affected.
3. If the cause of death is written within the next 40 seconds of writing the person’s name, it will happen.
4. If the cause of death is not specified, the person will simply die of a heart attack.
5. After writing the cause of death, details of the death should be written in the next 6 minutes and 40 seconds.

Ok this is hands down one of the most interesting and well plotted manga of the last decade. There is a very good anime adaption (look at the outtake down here) and several realfilm adaptions of that manga, which i haven’t seen. But this can’t be really made into a bad movie, because the story is simply too original. It’s about a adolescent genius who one day finds a notebook at school, which – so it says on the first page- has the power to kill people simply by writing their name in it. At first he’s of course sceptical, but a “test” of the book reveals it is not some joke, it’s real. After the first shock he decides to change the world to the better, killing the most wanted criminals around the globe. A Shinigami (death god) joins him, watching it (not really a devil, he’s just a bored god. The evil here stems entirely from the protagonist). But soon his megalomanic attempt to make the world a better place is met with a matching antagonist- an anonymous agent of Interpol, L, who has the task to hunt down the powerful criminal, who can kill without a touch (and make the worlds present justice system look pretty helpless). They both get caught in a battle of wits, knowing that the one, who finds out the name and face of the other first, will kill the other. This story is so full of win, and it even gets better, because the author is able to deploy some very logical and interesting twists to the story. You can watch the first episodes on Youtube…(link).

    Die Sequenz in der Ryuk sagt, dass Menschen amüsant sind, weil Light sagt er will eine neue Weltordnung erschafft… großartig!

    huhu 🙂 Ja der Anime is verdammt gut. Aber er wäre noch besser gewesen wenn sie nach der ersten Staffel einfach aufgehört hätten…das war ein perfekter Handlungsbogen, stattdessen gabs noch ne zweite Staffel die fand ich aber nicht ganz so pointiert und das Ende ebenfalls etwas enttäuschend (wenn auch logisch, das es so oder so ähnlich enden musste).

    Ich fand vorallem, es endete zu schnell. Aber die Idee ist einen Litaratur Nobelpreis wert.

  6. Lola mag Deathnote, hat die Animes. Ich finds lahm. Ich mag die Zeichnungen nicht besonders.
    Das Todesthema filmisch besser umgesetzt und obendrein kein Anime sondern Realserie: Dead like me.

  7. es gibt allerdings auch bessere mangas bzw. animes 😛
