Death Note was definitely quite a unique experience for me. Its a series that'll get you hooked from the first episode, and you won't be able to wait for the next.
But here's the kicker: It has no fighting I'm so conflicted... how can I like an anime that has no fighting!?
The answer is: Brilliant Storytelling. A fast-paced and interesting plot, coupled with good music, interesting characters and decent voice acting results in a masterpiece that flows seamlessly from the beginning to the end of its 37 episodes.
The plot is that a smart kid finds a book Honestly, that's it! Haha, well there's more to it, but I don't want to ruin it for you. Many people fantasize about what they would do if they had supernatural powers. What they could achieve. This anime takes a frighteningly realistic look at such a scenario. I definitely recommend it!
Annoying Character: Misa!!!
Bottom line: "Brilliant!"
