Indeed
this is definally the best manga ever..
i really enjoyed reading Monster...and other detective manga
But i think Deathnote is something different
the outcome of the story..always surprise me
hehe
But i got one thing i mind

Remember Sai died in Hikaru no Go??
Samething might happen to Ryuuku(the death god>??)
Spoiler:


oh by the way..I really think Obata should draw some shoujo manga
hes characters are really interesting =]

I actually think that--at the very end--Raito or L will die, not Ryuuku. But I tend to be totally wrong when it comes to plot predictions, so maybe not...

Does anyone else think it makes more sense to call Raito's notebook a 'Death Book' rather than a 'Death Note'? Then again, 'Death Note' is a much better sounding title.

Anyway, I'm so glad I found this series--I rarely read manga, but this one definitely has me hooked.

Only read up to chapter 28. Not sure if I can ask for this manga since i'm not sure it's liscensed...

But the concept is sooo intresting. Great manga. I personally think Raito is wrong. I hope L wins the whole 'case' thing.

In Japanese, the word for "notebook" is "note." So when they say "Death Note," what they're really talking about is a "Death Notebook."

chapter 32 is out~ the scans that i got shows a character in Bobobo~bo Bo~bobo with deathgod's appearane, it's hilarious!
i cant read japanese, but does anyone know if there are any connections between the author of deathnote and bobobo?

Has anyone read chapter0? which involved this kid that looks like L when he's grown up.

Well at one point Obata drew a chapter of Bobobo as a guest artist so that might be the reason why the cameo is there. BTW if anyone knows where to get that particular chapter of Bobobo share the wealth!

Wow, I love this manga, it may be my favourite manga at the moment... up there with Naruto at least. I love the game of cat and mouse L and Raito play, watching two geniuses trying to out do the other is really incredible. The yaoi undertones, LIKE IN CHAPTER 37, are just... getting sort of REALLY interesting.

Not that I mind ^_~

I think the manga plot is seriously going weirder and weirder since Misa got introduced... and now that
Spoiler for from page 35 onward:
but then it's still quite fun to read, just that it doesn't feel the same as before...

*did not read the spoiler*

yeah. if it were just a battle between L and Raito it'll be too boring. A hot girl joining in the party is always welcomed, especially a gothic lolita.

DN's plot is getting ridiculous and fanservice is starting to really bug me. I hope they won't ruin the cool concept. Light ( which is by the way a stupid name ) was an interesting character because of his wickedness. And now if wickedness is gone permanently...

Edit: Yep, I know, Light have most likely planned something to figure out his old self. Perhaps left some clues to buried DN. The question is what will he think about his old self.

Come on do you really think Raito doesn't have something planned? There's no way he would do all that and then just give up, what's the point in that?

I don't read Chinese but there's someone who does English text translations, so I read those while looking at the Chinese scans :P

The battle wits to see who can outdue the other to succede in their plans. The morals and internal conflict that the characters experience is truly unique in the sense that its used. (Okay, not completely but you know where I'm comin' from)
Spoiler:
Yeah,i totally agree with you.Takeshi Obata is easily one of the best Manga artists' ever to grace the scene.(*I mean it*)
Another one of my favourite factors about this manga is the fact that the 2 main protagonists are very unique,not your typical shonen-genre leads.The sense of realism gained from the authors unique portrail of his charcaters allows the story to be told from a unique perspective.
I personally like Raito alot,(*Or rather,how the author potrays Raito*)due to the fact that he is just a guy like us who happens to find a death note on the ground.The conflict which rose within himself after he killed his first two victims lead to a reasoning which helped Raito himself to believe that what he did was right which eventualluy led to a goal which resulted from that very reasoning in the first place(*Goal=Become the god of the new world he would create*),a conflict that we can all relate to.(*In the sense that we have experienced this sort of argument within ourselves in one form or another before*)
The best thing about [DeathNote],in my opinion,is that we can relate to the charcaters in one way or another.

Good work, nephilim. How many more chapters are you intending to translate?

Death Note has way too much text and complicated dialogues...I shudder at the notion of attempting it.
