Death Note and Sailormoon have something in common…
Both are addictive despite the gargantuan plot holes.
The story begins with a seemingly innocent straight A student in a seemingly ordinary environment. Light Yagami, 16 years old, picks up a Death God’s (Shinigami) notebook lying on the school lawn. Written on it are rules about how to kill people: write their name on any page and they will die of a heart attack in 40 seconds. If the death note owner manages to write a method of death within 40 seconds, he is then given an additional 6 minutes and 40 seconds to discuss the details. At first Light believes that a prank is being pulled. Upon testing it on a petty criminal, however, he quickly fits himself into the role of judge and executioner. He begins murdering high profile criminals, disguised by the moniker Kira, in order to rid the world of evil…
In comes a renowned investigator, who goes by the name of L. At all the world’s leaders’ behest, he forms a team of investigators intent on uncovering who the mysterious mass murderer is. This hide-and-seek scenario is the entire life of Death Note’s premise.

The problem with deathnote was that towards the end it got boring -and fast.
What I did find problematic was that people found the anime interesting when it only focuses on the egotistic and psychotic tendencies of a college freshman who thinks he can rule the world. Not saying that it's note my cup of tea, I found the story quite intellectual actually but never did push through with my liking of it. can't blame pop culture for spreading it's fame like the plague XP

For me, sumablay yung Deathnote nung dumating yung “M” at “N” na characters… ok na sana eh… pwede ka ng mahook kay L vs. Light… kaso biglang dumating ang mga mukhang homo na dalawang bata hayan tuloy… wasak ang aura ng story…
true… kung pag-iisipan ng mabuti, mawawalan ka ng gana manood ng Deathnote… kaya i tried not to be as critical as possible para maenjoy ko ng kahit konti… 😀

oo kasi pakiramdam ko ginagago na ako eh. sobrang daming plot holes kahit mag-drawing pa ako ng chart to excuse them, hindi talaga uubra.
