These books are freakin' EPIC! They're so great. The story is amazing and so are the charactors. Best manga ever.

This manga is the best, always making me think. I really enjoy reading these books. This is a great deal too, you'll save a good amount of money buying these books all together than buying them separately. Might as well get them all now.

I absolutely love my box set. It came in perfect condition and every book looked amazing. You save more money buying it in a box set instead of one by one and it even comes with the how to read book and a little pamphlet that contains the death note rules. In addition, the how to read book comes with a small golden card that reveals L's true name. It is truly a bang for my buck.

Ordered the book set on Dec. 1 and it said it would ship within 24 hours. A few days later I get an email stating it wouldn't ship until the 21st. Contacted CS and the response I got basically said take it or leave it. Luckily I received it before Christmas. So if you need this before a certain date, it might help you to check the ship date first. I'm assuming this is site-wide. Book set it great though. My daughter read all of them in a week. :D

Death Note. Either you've heard raving reviews from friends and acquaintances about this series or you haven't heard about it at all. It's a series that could easily fit into several different categories such as crime, horror, thriller/suspense, supernatural, but I like to think that it's a successful combination of many different genres.Out of all the things said and unsaid about this series, perhaps one of the most interesting facts is one that is described on Wikipedia. According to the Wiki-article, the Death Note series was banned in China, which in itself isn't surprising because China seems to be in favor of banning anything that they consider "bannable". The reason for the ban? Chinese children were changing their notebooks in order to make them more like the Death Note. I imagine that the official in charge of banning Death Note had his/her own name written in quite a few DN-wannabes!The premise begins with Japanese mythology. A "shinigami" or "death spirit" possesses the item known as the Death Note. Any human with their name written in it dies (for more details, look at the books), and the remaining lifespan that the human had is given to the shinigami. The action starts when a shinigami named Ryuk decides to "drop" his Death Note in the human world and see what happens. The human that retrieves it, Light Yagami, (whose father just happens to be the Head of the Japanese National Police Agency) initially dismisses it as a hoax, but when the criminal whose name Light writes in the Death Note dies, Light's world changes forever.The entire story spans over 12 volumes. Several live-action movies have been made, as well as video games, and a highly successful 37-episode anime series.Awards/ReviewsNominated for Best Manga (2006 American Anime Awards)[purportedly has received other awards, but reviewer was not able to locate any at time of review publication]
