The main characters, Light and L (all right, Ryuk also, let’s include that shinigami as well – his love for apples equals my love for sweets and that’s something), are extremely interesting due to their intelligence and to their way of thinking. The anime, which is based on the manga that has the exact same name, written by Tsugumi Ohba and illustrated by Takeshi Obata, is focused on the constant battle between the two. Slowly, their fight transfers beyond the main purpose: justice, and becomes personal. Each one has his own style of facing the challenge and each one thinks he is right, seeing his opponent as an obstacle. Those two brilliant minds against each other, both desiring the same final reward: victory, will definitely force you to use your own detective skills. Team Light or team L? It’s been a great experience to watch this anime and to think and force my brain to work properly, from this point of view, along with the characters. The end was a bit surprising, but even so it broke my heart into pieces. To sum up, Death Note f*cked up my feelings and I strongly recommend it.
