    So, basically, for those who don't know what "Death Note" is, it is a manga, which has been made into live-action films and an anime series.One of the two main characters, Light, finds the Notebook of a Death God.The notebook has the power to kill every person whose name the owner writes in there, if he brings that person's face to mind as well. Light, a brilliant but arrogant student, doesn't believe the instructions on the notebook at first, until he uses it once for fun on a criminal. Making sure it IS real, he uses that notebook to get rid of villains, secretly killing them off one by one. Some days later, the police contact L, a mysterious detective, to track down the killer "Kira", the name by which Light is now known to the public. Light/Kira does not know L's face nor does L know Kira's identity.

    So, if you were in Light's position, what would you do if you came upon the Death Note?
    You just read on the Notebook that it has these powers. You can't be sure it works.
    For all you care, it can be a hoax. What would you do?

    I'd try writing a dead guy's name backwards and see if he popped back up.

    BTW, I hear it's a really good manga that I should read.

    I'd say destroy it, although with one of those Death-Gods watching I'm not sure that course of action would turn out in my favour... [​IMG]

    Keep it. It's always good to have something like that at our disposal.

    I love the 2nd movie's ending.

    As for the Death Note, I'd keep it, and use it if I really had to.

    have these films been shown with subtitles? I.E. Is there a US/E release of them?

    Cus, lets say, for instance, i was to find a torrent for these films??
    Does it have a different name for the US/E?

    This is one of those idea that's so simple it's bound to be adapted for an american version. Anyways, from what I heard, the manga has a high point.... before crashing and burning right towards the end.

    10 votes already and I can't believe I'm the first person who voted for "Use it"...
    What the hell is wrong with you people? It's a friggin' Death Note. Although I do understand that some of you need a Nemesis to function. Not me though...

    I have seen neither film, but I'm looking forward to.
    I'm surprised to see, that so far most would do, what I would...keep it, that is.
    I was feeling a bit guilty about my choice, but now I feel much better [​IMG] [​IMG]


    There are actually torrents of the 1st film with subtitles, though I don't have it.
    And, I agree, I too thought a remake would be possible, but again complete catastrophe.

    It does, although it's more like an awesome high point, followed by a low, then a few up-and-down middly-ones. I'm still reading though so couldn't say about the "end".

    I don't know what to do, should I watch the first film or wait till the anime has reached a certain point?
