STORY WARNING: the story is slow paced and tedious so if you know you dont have the patience to watch anything that progresses that slow I wouldn't watch it.
Art: The art isn't like most anime and has a dark appeal to it. I'd classify the anime as a cyberpunk, because the setting looks really desolate, dark, and not much human life about.
Sound: The opening was techno-ish and related to the quote I put above, and the ending was GACKT. Who couldn't love GACKT? They also included an ending song for the final episode that was really heartbreaking.
Character: The protagonist isn't like other cliche protagonist you see. Ichise was the opposite of that. He barely talked, but fit the story well. Most of the characters in this story aren't what you usually see in an anime as well
Enjoyment: It's one of my favorite anime's because it's a breathe of fresh air. It's the opposite of everything that you would watch today, and really original. I recommend it to anyone that has the patience and time to watch it. read more

The recap is told through Kurumi as you can remember, she is the antagonist and tries every way possible to hinder Sawako and Kazehaya from falling for each other because she likes Kazehaya as well. As she recalls all the memories she experienced from last season she walks to a store to buy chocolates for Valentine's day for who else but Kazehaya. As the story comes to a close it sets you up for the concluding season for Kimi ni Todoke.
The OP and ED for Kataomoi are very good in fact and relate to the story very well. The OP and ED are also used in the second season, so the story recaps the first season and gets you into the right mood as well.
There wasn't nothing special about the art or characters that changed than the first season, so not much to say about them rather than they didn't change.
This isn't a must watch, but a very good follow up for the second season for kimi ni todoke. read more

"Alive!" is about a man named Yashiro Tenshuu who killed 5 people and is put on Death row but, is allowed to live if he becomes a test subject from a secret government. They put him and another man named Gondou into this isolated room where they can have anything they ask for but are not allowed to come out of the room. The girl on the other side (Saegusa Yurika) of the room tells them if you want to get over here on my side of the room you have to kill each other. So whoever makes it out "alive" gets to be with her. Who will stay alive? You have to keep reading to find out.
There faces...are..so..intense. Haha that's the most remembered thing about the manga to me is that all the characters were always drawn intense and sweating. Overall the art was great and perfectly fitted a horror manga.
The characters however don't really make a bond with the reader which is why I gave it a 6. Nothing special but its fun to see what's going to happen to them next.
If you want to read something quick and also have a good time reading it Alive! is a must read. read more

Death Note was the first anime that I have watched and from the first episode, I was enticed to watch more. The anime starts off with Yagami Light, A 17 year old student that picks up a notebook named the "Death Note". At first he thinks the Death Note's power to kill people is fake, but later finds out that it works. With this new acquisition Yagami Light has the power of god in his grasp, and uses it to kill criminals to make a perfect world without any crime. Killing criminals is ok right? Well L Lawliet doesn't think so. L is like a Sherlock Holmes to me, when nobody else can solve the case you go to him to solve it. As the anime progresses L takes on the case and tries to reveal who the killer is while Light tries to find what L's real name is. (in order for Light to kill L he has to know his real name)
The scenery for Death Note was really impressing because it sets a mood of what the characters are going through and feeling. Speaking of the characters, they were also drawn impressively and according to their personalities. All-in-All the art was good, and gave more sustenance to the anime.
What's up people? I just had to say that. No joke this is one of the songs from Death Note. The opening and closing songs was another thing that dragged me in and kept me watching more and more. The first opening and closing songs were made by Nightmare, which put a lot of passion into the anime. The second opening and closing songs were more intense, and you ask yourself why the makers of Death Note would switch the music up so drastically. It is a big change but it fits Yagami Light's pursue of making a perfect world and it also gives the anime a darker feeling. Where would Death Note be without the soundtrack? The soundtrack was very important in adding suspense and making the moment just right.
Yagami Light and L Lawliet or L however both intelligent are different individuals. Light the protagonist is under serious pressure. If he gets caught and is found out that he is the killer behind all this the penalty will be execution. Light shows different personalities because of this. When by L he is really calm. If he's not calm he will get caught instantly. When writing criminal's names in the Death Note he shows the psychopathic side of himself. Both of his personalities draw "you" the watcher in because you don't know if he will crack under pressure or if he will achieve the status of god in his new world without crime. L is a very lovable character because he has a sweet tooth and sits differently than anybody else but all at the same time he wants justice. His personality differs from Light's because of the actions he takes. Light kills and L does not. Light wants justice by killing and L wants justice by finding the killer. Light is more psychotic and L is more pure of heart. These differences bring them together for a battle of wits. The characters of Death Note although I have only explained 2 of them are all well based and planned out.
Overall I give Death Note a 10/10, it’s one of my favorite animes because it has great suspense and it keeps the watchers on the edge of their seat wondering what is going to happen next. One of the best things about Death Note is that it can be a good starting anime for beginners or it can be for experienced anime watchers. I recommend this anime for any anime watcher out there, Death Note is truly great!
