This is the thing that got me into Japanese art. Unlike other animated series, its scenography shows no modesty at all, it's basically flawless. Up to this day it remains one of my favorite anime. PS: I like the fact that whoever was that to submit this here only added the first 25 episodes (and rightfully so, for the second season gave me cancer).
One of the most important works in my life. At odds with a lot of people I could care more for the early arc, although it is stellar - it is the back half (when the story skips a few years ahead) that is rarely off my mind, even 10 years later. I can think of very few works as tragic; the scope, the weight. The soundtracks by Hirano and Taniuchi are... absolutely peerless. Period. Forever.
rewatched the whole series. I now witnessed a lot more plot holes and saw how the writers desperately tried to plot the friendship between L and Light, but it is still an exciting show. You need to accept things, but in its best moments you can forget to breath. I will never forget the way Light writes his names down, the potato chip scene or when Light follows the woman of the FBI agent.
Intelligent, fidèle à l'original et mature: trois qualificatifs propres à la série anime que le dernier film de Wingard ne peut prétendre posséder. N'étant pas attiré par l'animation japonaise, quelle ne fut pas ma surprise de découvrir un récit bien construit, atypique et divertissant.
Seul bémol: les personnages féminins, presque tous accessoires et trop stupides pour la ligue. Grincements de dents à prévoir.
