SynopsisThe original one-shot for Death Note, a young boy finds the note and struggles with whether to use it or not. Many of the ideas in this were carried over into the full series, but there are some interesting differences.

This manga is the one-shot that started the Death Note series. I expected some things to be different, not much. I found this issue to be enjoyable yet ... odd.
I'll be frank: here, there is such a thing as a death /eraser/. Something to bring those that were killed in the Death Note back to life. That should tell you something right there.
The main character is an average kid with no intention to actually kill anyone (he did by mistake) which made the plot fairly less entertaining. The Death Eraser was just weird - really glad Ohba got rid of it.
It's a cool "look what started it all" kind of story, though not much if you're looking for something really engaging like the actual series. The art was good and the character could be seen as more relateable, but it's just something that fall short when compared to what was done with it later. read more
