    I will hop on the anime series thread posts with my latest obsession.

    Death Note.

    Anyone watch this anime? An old college chum of mine pointed me in the direction of it, and I was able to see some episodes and I must say it is a fantastic watch.

    I know there are manga, and a live action movie, but I started with the anime. I am about 10 episodes in, but it is shaping up to be high on my all time anime list.

    For more info for those that don't know I will link to the wikipedia article:

    I've heard the name. If it is as clever as Code Geass (which everyone seems to compare it to) then I probably ought to take a look.

    I read the Manga of it. I started reading it right when the first arc finished, so I read the first arc all in a row and thought it was cool. I think I'll stick with the book over the show. I usually like Anime over Manga because I love to see the action, will, in action (so far I've dropped Naruto and Bleach Mangas for the show). Death Note has VERY LITTLE action in the Manga. So I'm thinking the Anime has a lot of subtitle reading, and if I need to read a lot, it might as well be the book, because I'm kind of slow, and I need to reread a lot of things, especially Death Note.

    I've already seen the first two episodes and the first live action movie. It is very awesome.

    I haven't seen the movies, but the first volume of the manga and the first 8 or so episodes of the anime were great. I really should finish it one of these days.

    ah Death note. I'm working on a perfect collection of the manga and I've seen a bit of the anime. It is pure joy. Also I can't seem to get the opening theme out of my head.

    Yep. They had a wonderful Holmes/Moriarty thing going, and then pissed it all away. IMO, things don't recover until the ending, which is superb.

    Damn, look at someone working resurrection spells on my threads!

    I actually have not seen any more since Episode 10...I need to set aside some more time to watch. I was really digging it.

    Have any of you read the manga? I heard it's similar but not exactly the same.

    No I haven't. I always get overwhelmed walking down the Manga aisle at Borders.

    The girl I talked to at my local comic book store said she liked the manga better.

    But she still told me to watch the anime and movie.

    I also want to play the DS game now. I wish there was an English version.
