    Highly Recommended!

    This is one of the best manga I have ever read! Suspenseful and will keep you wanting more. Learn from my mistake and buy ALL of the series instead of just buying one.

    My daughter loves it!

    My daughter has been wanting these books and was thrilled to find out they were essentially a double-issue and so were well worth the money.

    Highly Recommended

    This is a very good read if you enjoy some of what I would call darkness/horror. It's not horrible but I liked pieces and my sister loves it and the series. She's a big fan as it was a gift for her. It arrived quickly and on time and in new condition ^_^ She enjoys it and loves it so it is a good read if it's in your likes of a dark anime. -nods-

    Very, Very, Very, Good. I recommend it!

    This book was so amazing! I loved it. I finished in a day because I couldn't put it down. Now I am completely obsessed with Death Note and I can not wait until my next trip to the bookstore so I can get volume two. I have just started watching the TV show for death note and I also love it, as much as I love the book. I find that it was smarter for me to get the black edition because it has 2 books in one so you don't have to go to the bookstore twice. Or whatever. I'm really glad I chose this instead of a vampire book. Also, I loved this book even more because my name is Kira!

    Um...crazy much? But in a good way! :D

    Wow. That is pretty much all I can say. My friend gave this to me for my birthday because she loves it and wanted me to read it. I think it is a good manga, despite crazy Light who goes around killing criminals to "save the world and make it a better place." This all started when he found a "death note" that a shinigami(death god) dropped on the earth. I won't spoil it for you that haven't read it. So if you are intrigued by crazy maniac killing then this is for you, but if you're not...then back away very slowly from the shelf and forget you even thought about buying it. :) But personally, I thought it was good and want to get the next one asap!
