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

Perfect way to end the series.

Death Note originally made it's way into my hands when I was in middle school, more than 10 years ago now.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

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.

Sublime, ahora acabo de acabar de leer el último capítulo y estoy impactada.
Ha sido un manga sensacional, que comenzó muy fuerte y que desde mi punto de vista se desvió un poco en el transcurso de la historia, pero que vale la pena para poder disfrutar de la última lucha.
Es una historia policial y sobrenatural sobre el bien y el mal.

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

That ending was insane! It was slightly different from how I remembered the anime ending, but it was still very good. I think the ending was perfect because it reiterated exactly what Ryuk had said in the very beginning. Despite the history between the two characters, at the end of the day Ryuk was only there for one reason and one reason only - to cure his boredom at the cost of hundreds of lives.

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

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.

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

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

3.5 Stars - I found myself flicking through some of the chapters as I felt they dragged on a bit... but the ending was brilliant and so unexpected!! I cannot believe that this is over now though. :(

The series as a whole was a 5-star read for me. There were a couple of slow spots in the last two volumes but still a great read.

4,5/5

the whole series was worth both my money and time just to see Light squirming like the scum he is :')

i'm really satisfied with the end but... Mello deserved better.

Finalmente se ha terminado.
Este tomo representa un tú por tú entre Light y Near, de los más interesante y curioso, puesto que son dos mentes que se entienden tan bien que se anticipan a los pensamientos del otro, sin embargo, me queda claro que Light resulta ser superior.
Con L contaba con algunos puntos de ventaja y aún así, L podía darle lucha y los dos estaban al mismo nivel, pero el hecho de que hubiesen factores que favorecieran a Light, fue la pérdida de L.
En cambio con Near y Mello, todo e

And thus we bring my adventures with the Death Note manga to a close. What can I say about this series besides the fact that it is fantastic, and it's a staple read for most manga newbies for a reason. I tend to lean towards shoujo manga as I am a relatively young woman and that's the genre aimed at my demographic but Death Note just has something to capture anyone's attention. I loved the twists and turns and how I never knew what was coming. The end was slightly predictable but it was the righ ...more

Vol.1 is still my favourite. I liked the last two volumes, but I wasn't extremely happy with how everything was wrapped up.
