I know what you’re thinking. “Anime? Isn’t that for nerds?”
Why, yes. Yes it is. However, “Death Note” is something that can be enjoyed by anyone. It’s truly one of the most tense and harrowing offerings on Netflix.
“Death Note” follows Light Yagami, a high school student who stumbles on to the Death Note, a magical notebook that kills anyone whose name is written inside. Light develops a God complex and decides to punish crime relentlessly to shape the world into his image.
The film is thought-provoking, intelligently done and expertly animated. It may be different from what you normally watch, and that’s exactly why you owe it to yourself to watch “Death Note.”
