Once you read Death Note, there's no turning back. I was one of the many sucked in by its greatness.
If you haven't read it, please do so as soon as possible.

All I can really say is that I really love this whole series. All of the books leave me waiting for more...This series is definitely at the top of the 'dark' genre.

This book is full of suspense and twists! I highly recommend them for people who love the dark/angsty catagory even if they don't like Manga. The art is also detailed with semi-realism and really brings out the emotions on each character's faces. 2 thumbs up!

Spoiler alert! This time on the heels of the Kiras, Light and L join forces in ways not tried before. Pros: more intrigues, more complexity. Cons: banalities in the way that there's no real air in the story; it's dense as hell. Total: rewarding considering all the swings; detective loveliness.

L and Light are back and still trying to solve the identity of Kira who is murdering criminals in his own vigilante justice. Light has given up his Death Note and his memory of being Kira and is now working full time with L in his bid to solve the mystery.There is a new Kira in town. This time it is a organisation that is using Kira to kill people who increase their money. There is a small group working together in the company and no one knows which one of them has the link to Kira. It's a precautionary measure and it makes things more difficult for L and his team. They are now all working without the support of the police and one member takes it upon himself to do his own undercover snooping which puts the whole operation in jepody as well as his life.The mystery keeps getting more and more complicated and there is still no resolution in sight. This felt more like a filler and the beginning of a new thread rather than really moving the main plot forwards. Hopefully Light will rediscover his Death Note and the Shinigami will become more involved in the story again.

Great manga! Neat story, good art.

The pace actually slows down a bit, but it's still a compelling read. The series is in a much, much different place than it started out in volume one while still remaining true to the central concept, and that speaks volumes about the talents of the creators. There's also a bit more humour, which helps lighten what might otherwise be a dreary series.

Death Note goes after those nasty capitalist pigs and the storyline is as complicated and twisty and turny as usual. There is also some much needed humour injected into this one. Matsuda rules!!

They're starting to not be as interesting, but I'm hoping it'll launch back into greatness later on...

The Manga is great for the Nook, though it was put in the wrong way compared to the first few volumes making it go from left to right rather then from right to left
