Basically, this is your overview of everything concerning Death Note including character bios along with L, Mello, Matt, and Nears real name. If you love Death NOte and are a hard core fan this is for you. This also ties up any loose ends or questions the manga did not answer. Only thing I am disapointed about is that in Japan they released How to Read in a special Edition Collectors Box which came with replicas of nears finger puppets. I think that would be really cool to own, don't you?

Writing a fanfiction is hard enough with keeping all the information straight. I wish these were avaliable for mangas like Inu-Yasha and Bleach. I had a hard time keeping all the Death Note characters straight and remembering all of their names while writing a fanfiction until I bought this. I use it everyday while writing my fanfictions.

This is a great tool to help understand the manga. It has everything you would ever want to know about the characters, plus there is a one chapter death note manga that takes place in an alternate reality where L and Kira don't exist, and a 13 year old boy gets the death note...Anyway, this is a great buy, so get it and read up! just a little tip here: if you want to get the special edition and don't mind getting this in japanese, then you can easily find it online.

For a series as complex as Death Note, Ohba-san and Obata-san here clarify it all with the help from eager editors.From detailed descriptions of the plot to minutiae such as breaking down the titles for all 108 chapters, this book reveals all but does not philosophise on the choices the characters make.Open-hearted interviews with the creators reveal how they were affected by each-other¿s art and how Death Note unravelled, especially as the series quickly became a million-selling weekly series, and later a massive franchise with merchandise, anime and films to follow.The comedic four-panel specials that aren¿t found in the collected volumes are here, as is the pilot chapter.I disliked the seemingly haphazardly thrown-together character profiles, which just show very shallow info that nearly anybody could guess. I loved the interviews with the creators and their analyses, not to mention the editorial humor strewn across the latter part of the book, and the extra art.One of the best retrospective books of a phenomenon that I have read. Strongly recommendable if you¿ve read the series.

Don’t take it too seriously. Wow, this companion book to Death Note is not kidding around. This thing is packed with info: Character profiles, creator interviews, chapter title analysis, timelines, design concepts, complete death note rules, case studies, Ryuk’s notebook, final mysteries explained, Near’s toys, four-panel comics, the original Death Note pilot chapter, heck, there’s even a personality quiz and a collectable card featuring L’s real name in here! Some of the encyclopedic stuff is a little tedious to get through, but if you obsess about this series as I have then you need to read this. It answers questions you didn’t realize you had while explaining things you mistakenly thought you already new. A great capper after you’ve finished reading the series proper.

This was, without a doubt, the most helpful thing ever. I read it and some parts of the series that I was somewhat confused about made more sense. It has a lot of info in it and it's got some interested things that Ohba and Obata let you know in it. Every Death Note fan needs to have this in their collection
