    Death Note is absolutly amazing. It will straight up blow your mind. Almost everyone is incredibly smart in that show.

    Yagami Light is an ace student with great prospects, who's bored out of his mind. One day he finds the "Death Note": a notebook from the realm of the Death Gods, with the power to kill people in any way he desires. With the Death Note in hand, Light decides to create his perfect world, without crime or criminals. However, when criminals start dropping dead one by one, the authorites send the legendary detective L to track down the killer, and a battle of wits, deception and logic ensues...

    Dear god, yes! Death Note is amazing! It's so different from any other anime I've seen. It's about a model student in Japan who becomes bored with life until he finds a notebook with directions on how to kill people instantly. The notebook belongs to a shinigami, and the boy ends up writing down criminal names in a frenzy to purge the world and create a utopia where he is the new god. A famous detective happens to take on the case of searching for this "serial killer." The detective is a reclusive insomniac and sugar-addict. He and the boy match wits face to face, and throughout the rest of the anime, the audience is forced to watch their mind games, while the other characters are completely oblivious. It's such a fascinating story, and the characters are truly unique. If you don't want to watch the entire anime, at least check out the live action movies.

    It's a really good anime series, its sorta complicated though, i only understood the simple parts , but its fairly dramatic, but has comedy once in a while, I loved it and if you ever watched Code Geass and liked it,you will proabaly like this show because they are very similar, How Lalouch wants to overcome the world and make it a better place for his lil sis, and how Light (the main character) tries to make the world a better place by using the Death note to kill criminals.

    Yes you probably should watch it, you can find summaries of Death Note all over the web. I just believe for a mainstream Anime it's one of the better series out there and usually I don't like much mainstream anime
