Very well-written anime... will keep you guessing till the very end. It mixes the supernatural with crime and detective work. Loved it!

Death Note is one of the best anime I have ever seen. It is so carefully written and there is no room for mistakes. It also perceives life in a different way. It is not about being good or evil, it is about meaning and purpose. I think Light was meant to do all of those things he did. It is meant for him to become Shinigami, there is no wrong or right...
Also the "friendship" between Ryuga and Light is definitely interesting to watch.

This show started off quite well, however it started to slide downhill after L's demise. It seemed to get quite repetitive in some places. I found after L's demise it got boring for me. But I still rate this show 4 stars because it does rise questions of what really is defined as "good" and "bad" and in some ways this twisted show does get you questioning your own morals

I never thought I'd be into that sort of stuff but this is quickly became one of my favorite shows of all time. A brilliant show with an exciting plot and excellent writing.

A carefully written anime that examines deep morale issues relating to justice and life. The detail with which this show is related to the audience allows them to truly immerse themselves into the world and become engaged in the epic battle of wills and philosophy.

An incredible anime, an absolutely riveting story with an absolutely sublime game of cat and mouse played out. I personally absolutely loved our anti-hero Yagami Light.
The beauty of this anime is the dramatisation of a story with two opponents, equal to each other in terms of ability, and capable of incredible deductive reasoning, it's the most masterful game of chess with the highest of stakes. Though we have our protagonist and antagonist, that is not to say that there aren't a vast and well thought through group of characters around them who all contribute to make the story gripping and almost real.
A must watch for any anime fan, I don't know if it's the same dubbed, but I very much enjoyed the subbed version, with one small exception, the clearly shifting backdrop around the world, and all the characters continue to speak Japanese, without ever acknowledging that fact, if there had just been one small line somewhere that explained this personally it would have made it better, that is my only criticism. The show is just that good. Watch it, if you already haven't.

This anime is one of those that I truly enjoyed watching. Just the first episode and the main protagonist's characteristic made it so addictive to watch.
