    Re: Death Note thread (manga spoilers!)

    Death Note is about an ace student, Light (originally known as Raito in the old translation) getting ahold of the Death Note, a book in which if a human's name is written, that person will die.

    It was purposely dropped to Earth by a Shinigami (death god) named Ryuuku, who's bored and wants to see what Light will do with it just to pass the time. Light becomes kind of a vigilante with the book, deciding to dish out death penalties to criminals who've done truly horrible things, and create a world of utopia that way. His reasoning is that people will become too scared to do anything bad.

    But when the criminals begin dropping dead, the authorities send the legendary detective L to track down the killer. It's a battle of great wits all the way through and I highly recommend it.

    I don't seem to recall a priest or Ryuuku killing anyone ever since Raito got the Death Note...

    Re: Death Note thread (manga spoilers!)

    MnK, you'll notice eventually that we now have a subforum dedicated to Death Note. Feel free to break out of this thread and start a number of threads about specific Death Note chapter discussions, topics, etc. As well as advertise your own scanlations if you like here.

    I'm a little bit behind on Death Note right now, but I'm the one to PM if you have any trouble with anybody since I'm the most knowledgable on the mod team here as far as Death Note chapters go.
     
  7. Death Note Rules Discussion/Predictions

    (You can find the translated versions of the rules that have been listed so far in the volumes here.)

    As you may or may not know, a small list of rules about how the Death Note works and how the Death Notes should be used appears in each volume of the manga in Japan. Each issue contains several new rules (of course, I'm pretty sure that the tokobans only list the new rules). As of Volume 9, there are 52 (LII) rules. Some of these rules have made appearences in and had effects on the manga thus far and others haven't.

    Of the rules that haven't appeared yet, do you think they will? If they do, what effects will they have on the characters and the plot of the series? Which rules do you think are the most likely to make an appearence? Which ones do you think will be left out of the actual manga?

    I'm interested in the rules about how they're can only be six usuable Death Notes in the human world at a time. I believe that most of the major people could end up with a Death Note. These could include Raito, Mello, Near/the SPK, the NPA, Teru/Takada, and Misa. I'm interested in these rules and think that they might have an effect on the series later on.

    Well, what are your thoughts?
     
  8. Favorite character?

    Who are your favorite characters in Death Note? Mine are as follows:

    1. Near
    2. L
    3. Raito
    4. Ryuuku

    Re: Favorite character?

    I love L, mostly for his design. He's one of the most quirky characters I've seen in any manga. And it's almost enthralling how it always seems like he's thinking about more than what he's revealing to us. You want to know what's going on in his brain almost all the time.

    Ryuuku, for a character mostly destined to comedy relief in the series, also makes a great counterpart to Raito/Light - it's rather funny how Ryuuku brings out the humanity in Raito/Light when he's not human himself. Without Ryuuku, the series would be too dreary for my tastes. So I also really like Ryuuku as well.

    Raito/Light, I can't help but appreciate his smarts. He's one step ahead of everybody it seems, but at the same time I also end up hating him from time to time for his cold-bloodness. Very dynamic character, too bad there's not much of a chance that we'll ever get the "good Raito" back.

    I also somewhat like Misa, if only because her intelligence surprised me. One of the reasons I don't like Raito sometimes is because it's so painfully obvious that he's planning to do away with Misa when her usefulness expires.
     
  10. Who do you think is the smartest?

    Who do you think is/was the smartest person in Death Note? As for me, Naiujiro summed up my opinion well when he posted this:

    Re: Who do you think is the smartest?

    I think between L and Raito, L is definitely the smarter one. As Naiujiro said, L nearly had Raito if it had not been for certain circumstances. Raito's cooler under pressure, though, but that's a bit different.

    I agree that Near is likely more of a genius at this point, but I would like to read more before finalizing my opinion on anything. Still, voting for Near for now.

    Re: Death Note 92 Disussion

    The latest discussion threads should be stickied, MnK - so they can be the most prominent ;)
    I know. I just made this this topic before I was moderated and it slipped my mind after I was. - MnK

    Haven't read the chapter myself yet, though. I will have to download all the latest chapters soon.

    Re: Death Note Rules Discussion/Predictions

    I don't think tha'll happen. Too many death notes would make the purpose of getting one inexistant. Besides, everyone would end up dying :amuse.

    I've never even noticed new rules somewhere :oh Care to tell me where I can find them?

    Re: Death Note Rules Discussion/Predictions

    Been meaning to comment here for some time, but I want to re-read these chapters again first.

    EDIT: Never mind. I've reread them all, but I'm just not up to thinking about it to that extent. It's a lot of predictions, what if's and stuff like that. I'm just not Death Note obsessed enough I guess, and anyway, I think the author intends to stay with the original rules written by Ryuk for the most part throughout the series - until another reaper comes to surface, at least.

    Re: Who do you think is the smartest?

    *Wonders why he's getting dejavoo when he looks at these threads* I've see these exact threads somewhere else, but I can't figure out where. Can anyone help me out here?
     
  18. Re: Who do you think is the smartest?

    lol. Yes, I kind of copycatted... but it is hard to come up with original ideas for threads sometimes. But of course, alot of forum share threads in common (favorite character, ect.), so these threads are not too big of a deal. I just did that to get this forum started off. And I think that my Death Note Rules Discussion thread is a thread that wasn't on TOWNL... or at least I hope so. :amuse
     
  19. Re: Death Note 92 Disussion

    Good chapter. I love Near's Christmas Tree:
