Posted October 17 This anime was the 2nd anime I watched in my life. Coming back to it in the future, I noticed the brilliance in this iconic anime. For it's time, there were stuff like this anime, but only Death Note could pull it off of the Mystery.. Light, the young mastermind of the city, finding a mysterious Death book in a school courtyard, quite literally can lead to bad things... I enjoy the fact that it starts off as a somewhat trying to be a superhero-to-the-city trope, then it leads to a killer on the loose with mysterious deaths.. Although, what I dislike is that the main Antag/Protag? Lawliet, dies, due to Light - pretty much wanting to steal the show, and his antics...although, the artstyle and the way the anime moves from mystery to mystery is quite interesting...(even though there are times where it was quite obvious that it was Light's doing for all the deaths...) So all in all, it's about a 7-7.5 to me, It has great intentions, but needed some more in-depth work done..
