Latest Recommendation: Death Note

Death Note
I can’t believe I haven’t gotten to this yet, but here it is now.

Summary: Yagami Light is an ace student with great prospects, who’s bored out of his mind. One day he finds the “Death Note”: a notebook from the realm of the Death Gods, with the power to kill people in any way he desires. With the Death Note in hand, Light decides to create his perfect world, without crime or criminals. However, when criminals start dropping dead one by one, the authorites send the legendary detective L to track down the killer, and a battle of wits, deception and logic ensues…

For those of you who have yet to watch this, you are surely missing out. This show is Amazing. Actually. I loved every minute of it. It is the most ingenious murder mystery I have ever seen, partly because of the added supernatural factor. But that doesn’t change its greatness. It is just so clever and so well thought-out that I am simply astonished. Sure, you may think the first episode is a bit slow, but that’s just because it’s getting warmed up. In fact, it just kept getting better and better. After every episode, I was left wanting more and I am terribly sad that it’s over… personally, I did half expect the ending that it had, but that was actually the only part of this show that I thought was kind of poorly done. Well, really, the fact that it was poorly done actually made it even more well thought-out. I’ve probably lost most of you by now, but that’s okay because you’ll understand when you watch the show! But Light and L are both amazing and freakishly intelligent badasses. Light’s acting skills and both of their intelligences are OVER 9000!!! Kay no, that was too much of a cliché. But it’s so true. 37 episodes. 18.5 hours well spent.

Rating: 10/10
Just too good for words.

For those of you who have seen Death Note, any recommendations for shows similar to it? I’ve started watching Akagi, but frankly, I’m getting a bit bored of the repetitiveness…
