Death Note is a great manga for anyone that likes a serious plot with twists and turns. It is intelligently written and the artwork is amazing. The boxed set is an awesome value for someone who wants the whole series at a great price, plus it comes with the Death Note Encyclopedia as a bonus!
I never really knew much about Death Note. It first started with those random bored days where I search random stuff. This is where I found an article about it being one of the top manga/anime of its time. This of course was at least a year ago when I brought the DVD sets and this box set. I just decided to review it ,for the heck, of it.
I love the box set. It's beautifully designed and it carries the manga volumes well. At this very moment, the box set is among my manga collection beside the other "related" Death Note items such as the two "one shot" novels and the anime itself. It's an amazing addition to my self and really recommend it to other fans of manga or actual Death Note fans.
The Box set itself as a couple of great features especially the collectible "How to use it" booklet. It is just basically all the rules of the Death note in an actually booklet. It's great having the rules at your disposal. Just a Fan based thing; all fans must have.
The manga itself is brilliant! For someone like me who purchase this "on the whim" is saying much. I only knew the Death note was popular; from that article I read. I always like doing things like this; buy things and hoping they are as much as you expect. Let me tell you Death Note went beyond my expectations. I'm glad I purchase this :)
No summary of Death Note; I'm expecting for you to buy it "on the whim" . That's how much I love it! ;)
I fell in love with Death Note after watching the anime series. I bought this afterwards because I liked it so much. The manga is almost IDENTICAL to the anime, so much so that I didn't really finish the manga set because it was sooo familiar. It is an amazing story though, I would buy it again.
First, I will say that the perfect score goes to manga as well as to the box set as whole. Here is why I love the box set:-
Really great deal and inexpensive way to buy the whole manga. For less than 70$, you get the full 13 volumes. That is saving more than 50% if you would buy each volume individually (Amazon sells each volume for about 12 so the total will be 156$) Fancy package and great extra. You get the box of course, but also you get with it an extra volume how to read and how to use)
This is the boxset, but what about the manga? It is the best crime/psychological/thriller manga I've ever read after Monster. Period. I think the box set is a must have to anyone who is fan of manga in general
I bought this on a whim because I had a little extra cash and it went on sale. And booyyyy, do I love it. The case alone is beautiful, a good size with a handle for caring. I wouldn't move it around so much, but you could. The images on all sides are wonderful and very shiny, giving a professional nice feel to it.
When you open it, it folds out, displaying all of the manga inside. It also comes with a 'How to use', which is all the rules of the death note. Also a special present is in there too.
All in all great buy, wonderful series, and great packaging.
Death Note is a great manga for anyone that likes a twists and turns plot.Death Note is a supernatural, psychological mystery series- we start off with a smart, normal guy, who suddenly receives the power to change the world. We follow Light as he works towards his goal, and at the same time, avoid suspicion by the super detective L. The series quickly becomes a mind game full of clever strategies and psychological plays. In this box set you get volumes 1 - 12 and a bonus manga call "13 how to read" and a little book with all the rules on how to use the death note..
The product was more than I expected and exactly as described. Shipping was fast and I'm over all very pleased with the product quality and appearance as well. Price was fair but with everything that is included it's definitely worth it, it is as well a great read if you're into thriller/suspense manga with a solid plot.
This box set is amazingly beautiful. The only problem I have is trying to find a proper place for the box. It doesn't quite fit on my shelves like this, and I don't want to take the books out of the box. So it's currently sitting on the top of my manga shelf. Very happy with this.
