    In addition to tennis, I also really like anime. Death Note is probably my favorite manga and maybe anime. If you like anime or manga, post here and say which is your favorite and why.

    Death Note, is my favorite because the main characters L and Light Yagami, are so intriguing.

    Awesome, it's a great series and it get's better the farther in you go, until maybe the very end. Try the manga it's actually a little bit better than the anime.

    finished reading the death note manga... was honestly a bit draggy towards the end la... though it has a very clever plot to it...

    I like deathnote. Manga was very good. I personally thought the anime suck :-? i stopped...like at ep10. The first half of the story was pretty good. And agreed, 2nd half was going downhill.

    The movie was great. I watched the first two parts (english subtitles) and thought they were one of the best japanese horror/fantasy movies I have seen to date.

    p.s The actor who played 'L' did a great job.

    The j-pop singer right? I've heard of her a little bit. Do you like her?

    For some reason I never, really enjoyed the prince of tennis. I like Yu-yu Hakusho a lot more, in fact I'm watching that now.

    Anime and manga are complete garbage. The dumbing down of society to the nth degree. I would love to see it all just go away.

    ^^Really? I thought for sure after Twitter came out that society could not possibly dumb it down any further but there is always a lower level to be explored I guess. ;)

    Poke out your eyeballs and ear drums. PROBLEM SOLVED.

    Explain why anime and manga are dumbing down society any more than TV and movies.

    Death Note is possibly the greatest show ever. Other great animes, Shikabane Hime, and Black Lagoon.

    Yeah Pokemon counts. I used to watch that show all the time.

    Just saw the end of Death Note, it's sad.:( I really don't like the way the anime ended. They left out the epilogue.

    Black Lagoon is awesome but Shikabane Hime is just mediocre.

    thats bad to know. Im on chapter 32 now, I have seen some comments that said they also didnt like the ending. Well for me Death Note isnt that good after L dies. I have no idea how the end is going to be, Im excited. But im gonna keep watching tomorrow, I spend about 6 consecutive hours watching the show today, I feel tired.

    It's still good after L dies, it's just not great like it was from episode 3-25. The ending is really sad but I won't ruin it for you if you haven't seen it.

    I dunno...maybe it's the fairly common sight (in Tokyo) of 40-something males on the train reading r a p (e) fantasy comics? Anyway, this shiate is worse than most television and movies. It's produced by and for social retards. There's no defending it.

    Blood+ was decent, what I caught of it anyway. Bleach and Death Note are both pretty good. My favorite, though, is Paranoia Agent. I caught one episode of that and bought the whole set.

    just watched the ending of death note. It was pretty much how i expected to be, but i couldnt help but feel sorry for Light even though i hated him before. How is this type of anime called? i want to watch more animes like death note.

    You don't like anime, you've made your point. Now please stop posting your hatred for it, in my thread. Thank You.

    You got that right, bub. Also, this is not "your" thread. Never was. It's a public message board. Oh, and another thing-Anime and manga suck.

    Ok, this is going no where. I'm done arguing about this so I'm going to put you on my ignore list and if you want to debate this with someone else, knock yourself out.

    I don't watch anime or read manga (nothing against it)

    But I just wanted to say, I know what Death Note is!

    OK. If you hand me my gold star, I'll just be sitting in the corner now... :p

    P.S. Phil should stop being a troll. It's rude.
