There is absoutely no explanation about this series, if you don't know this show (witch would be rare) then please do NOT read this. Now without further ado let's start.
First off the Pros.
The show is mostly a murder mystery kinda like Detective Conan, in a way darker tone its keeps you hooked and guessing whats going to happen next in a match of wits to find out witch genius is the smartest in to figure out who is this crazy mother f**ker,"Kira".
This is the key of this show as this element freaks you out every time something happends at the end of an episode and the characters because there is a TON of it.
my favorite part is where Matt gets caught and tries to act cool but just gets death when all those agents pop a cap up his ass, i mean look this guy get an episode of face time and dies right away, thats some really cold s**t.
number 3:The note book itself
Basicly the rules of the death note, not a really good thing,but worth mentioning.A simple note book that can kill anyone just by putting their name in it,I gotta say thats cool especially the Shinigami eyes. If i had it,i'd kill Bin Laden for his bounty (a man can dream right?)
number 4:its hype
As much as liked this show, when I tried to find its fanbase, it was ALREADY overrated, but I didn't even give two s**ts about it, the show was good(honestly).In Japan, the show was so overlooked that it had two live-action movies. For my liking, why REMAKE the series when you can make another story (well thats just me say whatever you want) and the L changes the world was better but confusing in the begining.
Overall there may not be a lot a pros to talk about, then again the execution is top. BUT, when there is good, there is bad.Note:there a LOT of bad things to talk about if you are a fanboy…YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!
number 1:the pace
posibly the biggest problem the show suffers, most of the time, its about either Light, L, N, etc thinking in their mind of a plan. I mean i ENJOYED more watching the key frames of the city than hearing them think all the time then before you know it,the episode is already over. sometimes I even asked my self "wow...thats it? thats too fast"
NO not the "fangirl adoring Light Yagami" I'm talking about "episode 37 evil laughter-I am Kira- insane Light Yagami". half way in the story he and
Mikami ends up going hell crazy killing anyone in one in there way (even killing Takada just wow). for some reason, that felt sick and awful about this "god of the new world" ruling all and "being justice itself" it started to get creepy.
IMO:Come on i mean even if he did win, there still would be people opposing him until there would be no more people worshiping him, and thats not even worshiping as a "god" at all, thats enslaving the ENTIRE human race with a GOD DAMN book.
Not a big one but I felt some wierd vibe on them at all.
Since these two shows don't have much in common its hard to compare their content sorry.
number 4:the 2nd intro
the first was nothing at all it was good,but the second... don't even get me started.Now if you like that kind of goth music I have nothing wrong with it but the song feels like someone is getting a f**king seizure, actually if it would of keep progressing for about 20 more episodes i would end up with a seizure too.
Final verdict: +30% as good as one piece
Overall no show is perfect (i'm talking to you Oda)
Make no mistakes its a good show,but his flaws makes it lose a lot of points for my liking.Either way,it is an epic anime thriller.
