    Death Note is about justice. A young, intellegent boy named Light finds a notebook called the 'Death Note' which has instructions on how to use it. The Death Note has the power to kill if you write the persons name in the Note, and think of their face when you write their name (so people with the same name don't die) You can also write how they die, if you just write their name they die of a heart attack. Light finds and uses the Death Note to bring about divine justice, killing off criminals that he researches and decides are guity. As he kills more and more criminals, people start to cheer him on and give him the name Kira (a play off 'killer') Others, however, don't agree with 'Kira' and decide to stop him. They hire a mysterious man known only as 'L' who is the greatest detective in the world to track down and stop Kira.

    The whole focus of the series becomes a question of Justice. Who is the hero? Is it Light, who is killing off criminals who are guily but will live in jail or on death row all their lives instead of getting what they deserve? Light kills murderers and rapists and robers, not innocent people, so he is a hero, right? Or is it 'L' who is trying to stop Light? What gives a man the right to kill another? How can Light be sure these men are guilty? When does the killing end? After these criminals, where do you draw the line? What about the man who steals bread to feed his family? Does he die? What about a woman who is beaten and raped to the point she fights back? What is Justice and how do we define it? Is 'L' the hero for stoping Light before Light goes too far and starts killing innocent people?

    I give it a 9

    Scale of 1-10... it's a 15.5!!!! Death Note is even above those quality shows you just mentioned (although... Inu and FMA is really good) But Death Note is the best thing. EVER!!!!

    See... there's this genius named Light who finds a book and discovers that if he puts a person's name in it, they'll DIE!!!!! So, he starts punishing all the criminals out there. And, of course, the world get suspicious.

    The story is about Light dodging the cops and getting on the inside so he doesn't get caught. It's a whirling mecca of awesomeness and keeps you on the edge of your seat.

    it is about this dude who obtains a note book that is called the death note and when u write a person's name in it they will die within 5 mins. there is a death god that owns it and he drops it in order for some1 else to find it. when some1 finds it the gain the powers. i think it was pretty good and would give it like a 9.

    It's about a high school boy who finds a notebook with the power to cause the death of anyone whose name is written in it.

    There is a good summary on Wikipedia.

    I'd give it about an 8.
