What You Need to Know:
- Death Note is arguably one of the greatest anime of all-time, because it incorporates so much depth and investigation into the human psyche, but also dives into the realm of mystery. Death Note did what no other psychological detective anime could during its time and that was to go beyond the norm, step outside of its comfort zone, and attempt to show the world just how corrupt the human mind can be when we become overly consumed by power.
- Well that very power was finally discovered on this day May 22nd in Death Note, when Misa Amane finally encounters the real Kira Light Yagami for the first time. Leading up to the encounter, Light is already aware that there are other 'Kira' that exist. L tries hard to uncover the truth through watching a television segment as he thinks it will lead him closer to the real Kira. Misa then implies to L that she wants to meet Light in Aoyama, and Light receives the message. After much thought he decides to bring a group of friends with him, using Touta Matsuda as a smokescreen, but unfortunately for Light...Misa discovers the real truth as she has the Death's Eye!
- For us, this was one of the finer moments of the show because for so long, Light had done such an amazing job of creating smokescreens to avoid being exposed, covering every one of his tracks with precision. All it took however was one girl to uncover it all, which totally shocked us and made the show even more compelling as the story continued to unravel. What about you? What are your thoughts on this moment? Any other notable Death Note moments? Let us know!
One of the greatest anime indeed! Loved the Japanese live action as well!
LOVE Death Note so much!
