Exactly as planned!

I cannot argue with this assessment! If I had a Death note, the world would be a much better place. I guarantee it.


What Death Note Character Are You?
Hosted by theOtaku.com: Anime. Done right.


I really couldn’t have asked for a better answer. Apart from maybe ‘You are Ryuk’

    Death note! I have wanted to read that for ever! But copys are far and few between here! Its been on my to read list for about a year ever since I saw a picture of the goth girl with blonde hair and screamed “SHE’S WEARING MY SHIRT!” 🙂

    Death note is highly recommended reading. Well, the story gets a wee bit dodgy after… a certain major event, but it’s still a fab series.
    Surely there’s some shop or other that stocks it near you? There’s always online stores, y’know…

    And yes, Misa Misa (the blonde lass you saw) is indeed a positive selling point. For the most part. 🙂

    Being intrigued, but not aware of what Death Note is all about, I took the poll and it says:
    MISA

    Cheerful, Caring, Obedient, Talented, Competetive, Loveable, Sweet

    …I’m not sure how loveable or sweet I am, but I think the rest match me. But where it my overinflated ego?

    Well, the rest match you, and you’d definitely look good as a Japanese Gosuloli. Don’t know if you’d fit the skirts and corset tops, though. You could try, but you might not be successful.

    Ah! I’m a Light Yagami as well! Could be worse… I suppose… *gulp*

    I do wonder whether Ryuk is one of the results *shudder*

    One of my favorite animes, even after the above-mentioned shift of plot. Pretty long, at 37 episodes, but thoroughly entertaining 🙂

    BTW, didja know that MisaMisa’s voiced by Aya (Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya) Hirano? True!

    Anyway, I heard that the Death Note live-action fillums were suckish; would you bet otherwise?

    Mr Shelley and consorts –
    Hey, you’re Light as well? Nice! Well, considering that SPOILERS when SPOILERS and SPOILERS show up, then SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS and SPOILERS before SPOILERS, then that makes complete sense. 😉

    As regards the live-action films, the first one wasn’t bad — I’d have to see it again — and I’ve not seen the second one yet, although a friend of mine has both. If you consider them as retellings of the manga, much like how the anime series is, then you’re better off. Otherwise, you might be like ‘OMG ALL CONTINUTY HAS COLLAPSED’. But that’s usually the case with any adaptation; the animated series is slightly different from the manga, or the films/OVAs are side stories from the main series. Gives the writers and directors a bit more leeway.

    And you think 37 episodes is long?? O ho ho, my son, let me introduce you to Zeta Gundam (50 episodes), Monster (74 eps), Legend of the Galactic Heroes (153 OVAs, three films), Urusei yatsura (195 eps, six films, and 11 OVAs), or Doraemon (1049 episodes, plus one film every year since 1979). Consider yourself lucky. Better start catchin’ up on your Doraemon! 🙂
