review this was I am not a manga fan, I know some people love it like crazy, but I ve tried starting the most commonly loved Naruto, InuYasha, Fullmetal Alchemist, etc and been left believing that I would never come to appreciate these graphic novels Death Note was a complete accident which I found one day whilst browsing youtube I ran into the first episode and watched out of curiosity, then I watched the next and the next until I d seen the whole thing and knew I had to read the novels too Both are brilliant The whole series has only one flaw for me and that s why I deducted half a star from the rating I will talk about this issue later on.Just so you know, this is going to be a review of the series as a whole because I m not going to review every single volume, but I promise to leave out any spoilers.Here goes Death Note is brilliant It s incredibly clever and will challenge your views on justice and power, but the challenges it puts your way are far from simple I guarantee that you will change your mind multiple times during each volume you will switch sides constantly you will one minute think Light Yagami is evil and the next you ll think him a hero This is a very complex moral story about right and wrong, about how power corrupts, and about what is a just punishment for the wicked.Light Yagami is an over achieving student who is fed up with the world around him day by day he hears the news report listing murders and rapes and other atrocities committed by human scum When one day a Shinigami Japanese death god drops his death note into the human realm, Light Yagami picks it up and holds in his hands the power to kill people just by writing their names and picturing their faces whilst doing so He starts out with the most noble intentions rid the earth of the foulest criminals but there s a price to pay for playing god As people start to realise that somehow someone is murdering criminals and disregarding Japan s law methods, questions about justice begin to arise is the killer doing the world a favour, or is he showing a complete lack of respect for human rights Whenpeople begin to stand in Light s way, he is forced to write the names ofandindividuals some criminals, some not The power granted to him begins to change him, force him deeper into his obsession with this god like role All the while, Ohba maintains a brilliant pace and throws up many obstacles and challenges This story will really appeal to people who want something to think about and are sick of reading novels with the same old pattern.On top of all this, Death Note has possibly my favourite detective of all time When the Japanese police force realise that they are unqualified to catch the killer, they appeal to L Lawliet for help Now, I don t want to say too much about L because I could spoil it, but he s intelligent, lovable, brilliant I doubt you ll be able to resist loving L Lawliet And this is one of the things I love most about the series there s no clear line between good and bad The novel pits Light and L against one another, they have very different ideas about justice and right and wrong, but the brilliance of it is that you can see it from both points of view, in a way you find yourself on both of their sides So why did I knock off half a star Because I dislike the way women are portrayed in Death Note At the end of the day, this series was made to mainly appeal to young adult males There s no heroine and very few main female characters appear throughout the whole thing Also, the most central female character is Misa Amane and she is beautiful but useless She is silly and fickle, and she is mostly regarded with contempt from the other characters This would probably annoy meif the rest of the story wasn t so excellent, but it is, it really is.You should read it Or watch it Each episode is only 20 minutes long, why not try out the first and see if it s something you could like My very first read of Manga and it just blow my mindI mean what if you have A Death Note,A note that belong to one of the gods of Death..Just write a name in itwith the person s face in your mindand BAM Dies..It s a hard to pick a side story..I mean, I would do just as Light did, try to get rid of those who make life hellKillers, torturer, rapers, sadist and child abusers.Damn them all ,you know , specially in here in EgyptThe law is way slow and ,mostly, not that fairat My very first read of Manga and it just blow my mindI mean what if you have A Death Note,A note that belong to one of the gods of Death..Just write a name in itwith

child abusers.Damn them all ,you know , specially in here in EgyptThe law is way slow and ,mostly, not that fairat the same timeis that would be fair Oh and I may go BIGGER but, not now, Let s back to the story..Light, a prodigy student, as an answer to his prayer to get off his Boredom, finds a Black NoteA Death Note, complete with its instructions.and as a Good person , he know how to use it as best as it getsI feel I m soooo agree , mostly, to his ideas, is that making me a bad person , may be..The Death Note originally belong to Ryuk a Shigami, a god of Death may be in Japanese myth, I don t know He deliberately lost his Death Note into the human world ALSO because he felt a strong Boredom he wanted to leave the Land where the gods of Death hanging around.BUT as hundreds of criminal and convicted murderers, The Police of Japan NPA start searching for who is reasonable for this weird phenomenon..and for this mystery they can t look without a genius detective..And here s L , a anonymous detective who s super smart and really effective in solving mysterious cases Now they together will do all their best to catch this one they call Murderer ,But will they The first Vol , Boredom , has 7 chapters.Boredom 5 Stars L 4 Stars Family 5 Stars Current 5 Stars really smart Eyeballs 4 Stars Manipulation 5 Stars full of anticipations Target 5 Stars WHAT A PLAN The chapters are really amazing and fast and it caught my attention with even before I finish the first chapter with Light magnificent discovery, and the fun of the neutral companion , the Shigami ,god of Death with his super cute features and the surprise in chapter 3, family I won t spoil for you now then L came and it s Cat and Mouse.both super smart , both righteous Both think they represent JUSTICE..So , pick a side I know it s Hard..A truly nice comic, Manga..and it s a great start to me into this world..Mohammed Arabeyfrom 9 February 2016to 11 February 2016 PS This is half the review of the edition I read, The Black Edition since the review there will be in Arabic when I finish Vol 2 too. I don t read very much manga But I picked the first few books of this series up on a whim, then quickly bought all the rest so I could finish the series Short version I really enjoyed it Longer version Here s some thoughts in no particular order Great example of how you don t need a bunch of crazy fantastic things happening to make something a gripping piece of Speculative Fiction In this series, you ve got a notebook, and if someone writes your name in it, you die It doesn t seem l I don t read very much manga But I picked the first few books of this series up on a whim, then quickly bought all the rest so I could finish the series Short version I really enjoyed it Longer version Here s some thoughts in no particular order Great example of how you don t need a bunch of crazy fantastic things happening to make something a gripping piece of Speculative Fiction In this series, you ve got a notebook, and if someone writes your name in it, you die It doesn t seem like that should be enough to carry twelve graphic novels worth of story, but it absolutely does These books break a lot of my rules of thumb in terms of what makes a good story The vast majority of the action is people thinking about things That s a definite no in terms of storytelling, and I d think it would be a double no in a visual medium like this But it works You can t argue with that I think the series took a definite dip 2 3rds of the way through It felt to me like the story reached a natural ending point, then just kept on bulling ahead, ignoring it I ve seen this happen before with a fair number of successful US comics And a few series of novels And while it s nice to see that this isn t not a problem unique to US publishing, I still have a severe distaste for stories that don t end properly Doubly so if they feel like they re being infinitely extended just because the author won t let go, or because the publisher wants to keep sellingbooks
