Whilst the pilot was intriguing I found the first few episodes a little weak, however with each subsequent episode the show continues to improve and find it's feet. Do not expect the Avengers or you will be disappointed, but this show is one to watch.… Full Review »
Death Note is one of the hardest shows one can rate, it's divided into two seasons, one being very good and another quite bad.
First let me say that I'm far from a fan of the "common" Japanese animation,but I will grant credits where they are deserved.
In the first season you see good characters in "mental" duels, extremely high quality mental games are played, probably among the best ever devised in the history of cinematography/animation. The complexity and in some cases the psychological brutality makes you really feel this show.
The second season introduces extremely poor characters, one might think that second season was all about making the show win a great audience among the younger animation fans, it turns out to be, by comparison with the first season, one of biggest disappointments ever "developed".

There's some better than others but they look unique, something that is very rare in Japanese animation.

Something rare in Japanese animation, people dressing like normal people, or at least not like total ridiculous retards, so a big win here, you don't need odd dresses and hairs to make appealing unique characters.
While its possible that some find something that doesn't make perfect sense here and there, the cheer quality of the mental games is just too good to give a 9.
Very good soundtrack, it fits into the show perfectly.

The show is brought into the usual animation standards, immature retarded characters without any appeal and high cliche personalities.
