I can describe the genre of Death Note in many ways ^_^ it deals with fictional dectective works, mystery solving, dark fantasies, supernatural, tragedy and other ways that you can describe Death Note ^_^ i think the reason why Death Note is popular because the plot is interesting and it promotes itself in many ways because it is a movie, a manga, a anime, a figure, a novel, it is basically everything! I don't know much about Death Note but I have heard of it many time among many people who are obsessed with it. ^_^
Today, I will just start out with the basics things of Death Note and continue on Monday.
Death Note is basically a Japanese manga series written by the creator Tsugumi Ohba and the artist of Death Note, Takeshi Obata. Light Yagami is the main character of Death Note who is a high school student who discovers a supernatural notebook called the "death note", it was dropped on the Earth by a shinigami ( a god of death) name Ryuk. The death note is able to grant its user to kill anyone the user knows the face and/or name of by writing the name in the notebook while picturing the person face.
There are five instructions to using the Death Note notebook:
- 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 person's name, it will happen.
- If the cause of death is not specified, the person 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.
Now, these were the basics of what Death Note is about and the rules of the Death Note notebook. ^_^ I will explain more in detail tomorrow or on Monday. ^_^ See you guys soon~! And please let me know your opinion on Death Note~! ^_^
