Customer Reviews of Death Note V01
Most amazing anime12/17/2012
A must see for all anime fans. A good psychological thriller/ cat and mouse game between two masterminds. Each episode gets you more and more addicted to the show. The characters are more dimensional than any other series or movie that I have seen. Once I started watching, I could not pull myself away- it's just that addictive.
