The huuuugely popular anime series, originally a 12 volume manga by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata, the same creative force behind my favorite new manga series, Bakuman。 (see my review HERE) is now available on Netflix’s video streaming service.
You read that correctly, all 37 suspense filled episodes are joining the already heavily anime laden Neflix Instant library. The best part is that the series will be Japanese audio with English subtitles!
The story, if you’ve not heard of it, involves high-school student Light Yagami who stumbles upon a black notebook that turns out to be a deadly weapon that he uses to dole out his perverted sense of justice…until the world police organization begins to take note of the strange activities. Let’s just say that this is one Anime that will have you on the edge of your seat until the shocking and amazing conclusion.
Death Note joins the already extensive list of Viz anime currently available on Netflix Instant. If suspenseful crime thrillers don’t tickle your fancy, there’s always Bleach, Naruto, and Inuyasha.
