    Favorite Deaths and Returns from Death

    By 'returns from death' i mean both the cases where a really dead guy is actually resurrected, and the cases where you thought the guy was dead, but later was revealed to be alive. Also don't forget to mention what you loved about that death or the revival. Due to the nature of the topic, i must insist you folks to use spoiler tags.

    Re: Favorite Deaths and Returns from Death

    Nothing can top the two major deaths in Death Note. I'm pretty sure almost everyone would know which scenes I'm talking about.

    I don't like it when a major character who has been explicitly stated* as dead returns from the grave without a really good reason. Minor characters and implied deaths ("this guy might have died but we're not sure") are okay though.

    *The death scene and corpse was shown; other characters announce the death; there was a funeral; and the death advances the plot.

    I have to agree with Asarii on the Death Note statement. Those were fantastic!

    Re: Favorite Deaths and Returns from Death

    ^ ah yes there are some mighty good deaths and death scenes in anime. Two of my favorites: 1. Code Geass...you know what i'm talking about. Brilliant ending. 2.Cowboy Bebop...not much to say about this one either. While the CG one's value lies in plot and character development, this one's vaule lies in pure aesthetics. Best death scene ever.

    I'm with Asarii about the 'returns' from death...its not usually a palatable plot device. But who else can be expectued to turn even this into a brilliant ploy except THE Naoki Urosawa. 20th Century boys:

    "The internet’s perfect for all manner of things, but productive discussion ain’t one of them. It provides scant room for debate and infinite opportunities for fruitless point-scoring: the heady combination of perceived anonymity, gestated responses, random heckling and a notional “live audience” quickly conspire to create a “perfect storm” of perpetual bickering." - Charlie Brooker

    "I hold the wolf by the ears, I am in a dangerous situation and dare not let go" -an old saying in Latin

    I don't really remember dead people being brought back to life though...well at least except Edo Tensei in Naruto, but that's it, so I don't remember any good ones

    Agree with this! Miria's comeback is little unexpected, i think.

    You forget the end of Pain arc when Nagato revived everyone, including Kakashi?

    Re: Favorite Deaths and Returns from Death

    @Asclepius, that was a good use of the 'return from death' trope in my opinion too. How could i forget that one?
