Our customer reviews

This book is truly amazing. If you have read Death Note or watched the Anime (more the manga) then this is a MUST!!! It is unbelievably awesome. First thing, L's Name! The you get character profiles, Shinigami Profiles, (all of them, even ones barely or not in the series) then awesome and really funny 4 panel comics, from Akamaru Jump(Seasonal Version of Shonen Jump in Japan). It even has the One Shot of Death Note that was published in Jump before Death Note Series got published. It also has "which Death Note character are you" and answered questions on the series. That is only part of it so get this, no matter what!show more
