Tone DeathBy Artoons (6 reviews) from Barnsley , 19 May 2011I have a friend with a collection of toys and the one available was Lite. Now it looks pretty boring as a character so I wondered what on earth could you do with just a note book as a theme to an anime.
Oh My God...chills down my spine at some of the scenes. I have not been this enthralled in this type of plot since I read Alfred Besters The Demolished Man. Figuring out who is going to out do who, its not a normal series and constantly surprises me, which I find unusual in the churned out products we see daily on the market.
But beware, its plot and character driven, so if you want exploding heads and psychotic robots with bikini clad women and massive weapons then you will be disappointed.
If, however you want an intelligent thriller that doesn't assume its audience is stupid, then this one is going to be part of your collection once you see it.
It sets the tone for others to follow, watch out film makers, this is something you should be paying attention to.
The pace slows but not for long.By H0LLIE (198 reviews) from UK , 21 Jul 2010After the initial shock of just how fantastic this series really is Volume 2 seems to move a little slower.
The story is a bit further from the books through out the episodes on this volume, but still not by much. Misa's appearance adds some nice new twists and angles to the story which help to keep things going, but Ryuk has now taken a bit of a step back which is never a good thing. Rem is slightly different in appearance in regard to her colouring and is too obviously female, spoiling the later revelation during the Yotsuba arc (a revelation that is, sadly, ommited).
It continues to remain apparent that the American voice actors are all completely unaware of the story through the books and are not fans of the genre, a fact that doesn't really affect the actual series but still affects my opinion of it.
But this is still an excellent continuation on an excellent adaption of the excellent books. Beautifully animated and nicely paced. Highly recommended.
