So Death Note, I know what the story is about, but I never read the manga or watched the anime, or watched the TV series and movies that were done in Japan. I was pretty curious about the new American adaptation that just came out on Netflix, and so I guess I got to watch it without having any of the original series as baggage. Well, I liked it. Sure, it’s far from perfect, and it gets cheesy at points, but it kept my interest the whole time, and I was captivated enough to want to see how it would all resolve. I’m sure fans of the original will say it’s horrible, but I’ll say that it did make me want to maybe read the original manga or watch the anime.
