Death Note Marathon...

I Love Manga, The passion started with Samurai X, which was shown on the then Sanyu TV station. Kenshi's moves made me appreciate manga more and this has grown with the passing years.

Back to now. The weekend being an idle one for me since no plans to leave the house where made, meant that this was chance to catch up with my favorite manga and death note was an ideal choice.

Death Note is a Japanese manga series. The series is about Light Yagami, an extremely intelligent young man who resents the crime and corruption in the world. His life undergoes a drastic change when he discovers a mysterious notebook, known as the "Death Note", lying on the ground. The Death Note's instructions claim that if a human's name is written within it, that person shall die. Light is initially skeptical of the notebook's authenticity, but after experimenting with it, Light realizes that the Death Note is real. After meeting with the previous owner of the Death Note, a shinigami named Ryuk, Light seeks to become "the God of the New World" by passing his judgment on those he deems to be evil or who get in his way.

Soon, the number of inexplicable deaths of reported criminals catches the attention of the International Police Organization and a mysterious detective known only as "L" the world's top-rated detective. L has great powers of deduction and insight and quickly learns that the serial killer, dubbed by the public as "Kira" (derived from the Japanese pronunciation of the word "killer"), is located in Japan. L also concludes that Kira can kill people without laying a finger on them.

Written rules
  • The human whose name is written in this note shall die.
  • This note will not take effect unless the writer has the subject's face in their mind when writing his/her name. Therefore, people sharing the same name will not be affected.
  • If the cause of death is written within 40 seconds of writing the subject's name, it will happen.
  • If the cause of death is not specified, the subject will simply die of a heart attack.
  • After writing the cause of death, the details of the death should be written in the next 6 minutes and 40 seconds.
Soon, Light realizes that L will be his greatest nemesis, and a game of psychological cat and mouse between the two begins pulling all kinds of wit and trickery.

It took almost the whole weekend to final finish the whole series and in my opinion, I think it's much better than the new prison break and i'd recommend it for any one reading this post.
