I read the manga a long time ago when it was first being released and was the biggest thing. Then it fell off the biggest cliff I've ever seen in a manga or anime, which is truly impressive. I gave up shortly after it got terrible.

Essentially there is a very good natural ending to the story. This occurs at the half way point in the series.

I haven't watched the anime or the movie. I may watch the movie first.

That being said, the ending was great for the OLYMPIC LEVEL SWIMMING jokes it sparked.

The ending is great because Matsuda finally does something astonishing.

Watch the first 25 episodes (although it probably won't be necessary).

mean peer will probably post a thing, but based on the nature of death note you should probably keep your flavor name to yourself.

It would only negatively impede you by filling your head with assumptions

Tobbs Gnawed posted:

I'm not gonna sit here and lecture the two of you on Death Note lore because it would only negatively impede you by filling your head with assumptions but

the way the anime ends is a child's fantasy that fails to fulfill the basic promise, rewards one-dimensional thinking (SPELL HALF THE NAMES WRONG) on the part of the audience and MOST EGREGIOUSLY makes two "genius-level" assholes rely on a third party for the fate of the world to which I call BULLSHIT. that last laugh tho

Reichenbach was a better ending and even Doyle couldn't leave that alone.

I consider every one of you more intelligent than the characters from the anime and almost all of them from the manga.

Would he have though? Because his entire death would have been avoided. The thing that eventually kills him wouldnt have even happened if he had the eyes.
