4.5 stars! AHHHHHH!
Series review (combined with an anime series review) will be on my channel in the coming weeks, once I've finished watching the show :)

Okay I LOVED that ending!

Death Note originally made it's way into my hands when I was in middle school, more than 10 years ago now. Feeling old, anyone?

Anyway, I was captivated by the series from that moment forward.

This is a staple among Manga-lovers everywhere, and it's not hard to see why!

It's such a smartly written story, chalk full of twists & turns, with a devastating commentary on the definitions of justice & evil.

It suffices to say that I adore this series, & it's concluding installment is one of my favorites a

Here's the thing. this is a 4.5/5 star book. I love love love love the way it ended. absolutely the only ending I would have appreciated in this series. But I just can't get over how absolutely sexist this series is so I am giving the series overall 4 stars. There are 2 female characters in this entire series (main players I mean there are family members) and they are both used as props.
So I love this series and will revisit it in the future, but I will admit that there are flaws.

I definitely enjoyed the second half of this volume more than the first half.

It felt like the first half was dragging on until it got to the last half. The last half was exciting and brought the entire series to an amazing conclusion.

There is only one reason, and one reason only why this book is getting 5 stars out of 5.

That was EPIC!!!

The final instalment in the Death Note series was far superior to its predecessor which in my opinion was a tad too confusing.

This one however, made (near) perfect sense (pardon the pun) :) and oh my, justice was well and truly served! I am SO glad Light Yagami finally got his comeuppance - he was such a bastard - God, I honestly think he is my most hated fictional character (with Queen Levana from The Lunar Chronicles a close second. At least with the latter, I do (kind of) und

Note: This is a review for the full series!

So I finally read this series, which I have been hearing the hype of for years. I can see why so many adore this series, but I have my qualms with it.

This series follows a teenage boy, Light Yagami, after he finds a Death Note, a notebook where people die if you write their names in it. Light immediately decides to kill as many criminals as he possibly can whilst trying to outwit those who seek to catch him.

So I was obsessed with these first four volume

Okay, that ending was amazing!

I was so hesitant for the ending because I felt as though the series had dragged a bit as if Ohba didn't know how to end it, so just kept it going.

However, it was amazing! So many twists, and I think the outcome was the only real way it could have conclusively ended.

And Ryuk got such a big part in the ending which made me super happy!

Can't wait to now watch the series!

Death Note comes to an intense and tragic ending with this Volume. Most of this volume takes place in a single west house but the events that happen there are so suspenseful! I was on the edge of my seat the whole time. I love the way it ended it was a total surprise to me. What a fantastic series
I'm not sure I'm completely satisfied with the ending...
but beggars can't be choosers right? So I can't complain.
Wish it would've ended at volume 5-6ish though.

Found these very cool Black Editions at my library - this one contains Volumes 11 & 12.

The final two installments of this manga, and yet another woman gets all googly eyed over Light. Sigh. There continues to be lots of twists and turns, and I do appreciate that the author does not shy away from consequences that cannot be undone. That ending though. Ooh, that ending. Talk about sticking the landing.

loved the more direct confrontation between Light and Ryuk in the end! Definitely worth a read even if you think watching the anime is enough!

The sixth volume of Death Note: Black Edition is the final book in the highly popular Death Note Manga series. I’m happy to say that Ohba managed to finish things off on a satisfying note, but it doesn’t change the fact that I found this series to be a tad uneven, despite the fact that it has received near universal praise.

I’ll provide my general thoughts on the series below, while keeping things pretty spoiler free for those who haven’t read it yet. If you haven’t even read the first volume, y

Just a quick warning to say that this review may contain spoilers for Death Note: Volume 5!

I have absolutely loved reading this series and while I am not ready for it to end just yet, I am also eager to see how it will finish.

This volume was a little slower to start compared so some of the others, but the pace eventually pick up. I have been loving the cat and mouse between Light and Near, which finally culminates in this volume with their confrontation. Overall, this was so much fun to read and

Interesting finale to the Death Note series with twists and turns almost right up to the end! Happily, Ryuk regains some significance in this volume compared with the last, although perhaps not in quite the humorous way he had throughout much of the series.

I was reluctant to finish this book as the Death Note story would then be at an end. But I suppose all stories must come to an end at some point, just as 'all humans will, without exception, eventually die', according the the Death Note's inst

What even was that ending?! Not sure on the rating out of 10, but it was definitely 5/5.

Well, the adventure has come to an end, and while there was a little bit of a bounce back up in quality here, it just wasn’t quite as good as the first couple of installments in the series. Still, it was good to see the denouement of the story and to have it all come to an end, and I have to admit that it was kind of satisfying, even though it turns out that I already knew how it was going to end from somewhere. I think I watched it in one of the Japanese movies back in the day.

So the first half of this book is kind of a mess. It really gets bogged down in the hyper-complexity that was giving the last two books increasingly serious problems. You know the plot is too convoluted when the main characters are constantly having to monologue in order to ensure that the reader is informed of what is going on.

However, the books hits its climax at about halfway through, and this a really good thing. It means that the overly-complicated narrative can draw to a close quickly and
