Here are some anime screenshots:

Any thoughts?

Can't say I know much of manga or Death Note, but from its screens it looks like it could be interesting.
MasterKris
Ugh... Ryuk, for some reason, doesn't look right. Raito seems better off (is it me, or does he seem more girlish??), so is L.


So the rumor about Park Romi doing L and Akira Ishida doing Raito is all fake. Also, I can't wait for the D.Gray-man anime that's gonna come out on the same day. :3 (two very popular SJ gothic mangas are turning into anime this fall also which happening to air on the same day.)
Toby-Chan
Link's not working for me.

That said.


OMFG DEATH NOTE!!!!!

So excited. Most anime I've seen lately has been disappointing or outright lame.
Zolf J. Kimbly
Well i have to say the manga is awsome and i cant wait for the movie, but an anime just doesnt seem right. I btw i didnt even know there was an anime!!!
Blitz
The link's not working for me, either.

But, I cannot wait for Death Note and D.Gray-man anime. ^^ Both = <3
MasterKris
Hey, it's really not working. It worked for me just yesterday... O_O


What I found funny about the anime is that the VA who voices Raito is Tamaki from Ouran High School Host Club. XD (I just can't imagine.... lol)

Sorry it's not a screenshot, but it's a scan from a magazine I believe. happy.gif.

I'd say that Raito is drawn very well and in character, as well as L. I can't wait to see it! xD.
Tombow
@Edsrhimp-That is cool!! Plus, I believe it has the comments form the show's producer, director, and the character designer on the left page!! Nice!!
Thanks bunch!! happy.gif

Seriously? (Coinsidentally, (sp?) Tama-chan's speaking as I type this.)
The anime looks somewhat interesting, but that's about all I can say. I don't really know if I'll watch it, but we'll see.
Edsrhimp
Hey! Theres a clip for the anime already, it looks pretty sweet! X3.
Fushi
Raito/Light is so girly and cute...I wanna hug him ><

*squels insanely for this*

Heehee, I can't wait. I hope it follows the manga really well, cause at this point, that's all I can really wish for. :D

Misa's being voiced by Aya Hirano (seiyuu of Haruhi Suzumiya) !_! and L is being done by Kappei Yamaguchi (Inu Yasha, Usopp from One Piece, Ryuichi from Gravitation, Shinichi Kudo from Detective Conan...) My excitement meter has just risen up 20 points *-*

Oh, really? Aya Hirano for Misa? I can imagine that, it fits.
LOL, Shinichi Kudo and L~ Both wickedly smart detectives.


I still can't imagine sweet prince Tamaki becoming the maniac death-loving Raito... T_T

Is this...

You're right, it's totally Tamaki, but it doesn't seem to fit with Light's persona for me. Maybe I'm just too influenced by that crazed Kira, evil-eyed side of him that we've been seeing in the last chapters of the manga...I guess I've forgotten what the suave, calculating Light is like. Which is weird, since that basically defines Light. mellow.gif
Toby-Chan
Toby = so excited!

Guess I'll post this since tomorrow's the big day.

I have never read this manga, and I've been getting excited about the anime already XD
Blitz
If you are a member or lurker of the Death_Eyes LJ community, you can download the RAW there. Also, if you're looking for D.Gray-man that should be somewhere on LJ, too. Now I'm off to study for my French test....
Zarpia
Thanks you is about to watch the raw ep

I will start to read this soon as well.

I've read so many good comment about it. happy.gif
MasterKris
Popped in a website, watched the beginning of Death Note, got bored with it and stopped watching.

The OP is scary, what's with the red eyed and haired Raito? He looks even creepier than before. (the most creepiest would be blue haired Misa lying there looking dead) The anime looks like it was just dumped with all the budget the company had. Raito looks like a girl.

After I watched a few minutes, I got really bored by it. ~_~
I'm actually not a fan of Death Note, just a one time reader of it. While I was excited with the anime coming out, I never planned to watch all of it whole heartly. Well, I got my wish of seeing Raito but with Tamaki's voice coming out.

Someone should seriously get the audio of Raito saying, "Death Note," and the rules of the Death Note and insert them into Tamaki while he's speaking. XXD

The anime quality and the animation is superb. Expecting from the second most popular manga. Even though Raito sounds like Tamaki, the VA does a good job of voicing him.
Toby-Chan
I just watched it and found it to be incredibly full of AWESOME!

The big dramatic writing scene was sweet.

Gotta agree with you there, the writing scene was pretty awesome. I just can't wait until the subs come out so I can actually understand what the hell was said. rolleyes.gif It looks like DN is going to be pretty good.
Zarpia
Agreed as well, the ep was awesome and well done, I'm in vol 7 in the manga right now...who the hell is subing(sp?) this??
VincentProxy
I hope you guys do know they are making a movie of death note, I think 2 movies.
http://wwws.warnerbros.co.jp/deathnote/

It looks pretty good! I cant wait for it atleast lol.
Toby-Chan
The first movie came out already at the beginning of the summer. It looks rather campy, though.
VincentProxy
oh I didnt know, I am a bit behind heh!
Toby-Chan
So, as pertaining to the first episode-

Who the frig is stupid enough to try to rape a girl right in front of a busy convenience store?

Well... obviously those guys in the motorcycle gang were, but still...
VincentProxy
eeh is there like...a deathnote novel ? XD where its not manga? and if its manga any place to read it online? x.x;
Zarpia
Is a manga, and now the anime is out. the movie is old news, I have no intention on seeing it yet...anyway...who the hell is gonna sub this anime??
VincentProxy
Is there a place to read the DN manga online? or something? D:
Zarpia
laugh.gif pm me, and stop asking here
Blitz
Just downloaded and watched the RAW. The opening kicks so much ass! I'm gonna make a GIF outta the part where Raito bites into the apple.... tongue.gif
Edsrhimp
I watched it as well, It was pretty good, though, there wasn't a lot of movement, and a lot of talking, kind of expecting that from the first few episodes though, while in the manga if you think about it there wasn't much movement in the beginning, the animation was great, but Raito didn't look much ... like raito? XD.I know in the beginning that Raito's eyes aren't so diabolical, but it looked kinda ehhh...though I wouldn't really care much of that, the DeathNote artwork in general is very complicated and I can't believe how well they interprated it. =].But yeah, the second episode looks promising though, he looks more-in character, and I definatly can't wait to see L. XD.
Blitz
Death Note has been subbed by Desuno Fansubs!
Kakashi
Death Note has been subbed by Toriyama's World!
Blitz
^ And by Live-eviL! Three groups! I have to download all three to see which one is the best....
Fushi
I thought the first episode was beautiful. Beautiful animation, a good job of keeping it true to the manga, wonderful music, and Light is just so pretty~

I totally agree. That won me heart. He was like, some sort of Death Maestro. XD
And the song they were playing totally rocked.

I be impressed.

Horny retards! :D
they probably thought they could get away with it because other people would be too scared to help.
VincentProxy
lol just started reading it, and its awsome! Cant...stop...reading X_X!
Zarpia
I don't know if I was the only one that found Live-evil subs to be the crappies ones, maybe the ep was over edit it>>

TW was really good, I have to DL the other one.
Blitz
^ TW had two typos. They spelled particular with an "e" so it was perticular and they spelled delicious "delecious"
Live-eviL was very well done IMO but I like TW because the font is easy to read and the translation itself was superb. Desuno was HORRIBLE. If you want to call something bad, it's them. I haven't gotten Animanda yet.
mei_tenshi
I saw it (finally!), I like it. Hearing Tamaki's voice from Light made me giggle at first, but I got over it. Light's voice doesn't have that bounce that Tamaki's does, so it's easier to think of him as, you know, on the road to psychotopia [not a real word]. I love the scene when he writes all those names--the flying blue sparks were awesome. I want his pen.

The version I saw was TW's second version, and I'm satisfied with it. Like Blitz said, the font's easy to read. I have Animanda's, but I haven't watched it yet. I opened it just to check, and it seems that the font's smaller compared to TW's.

First episodes aren't usually this fast-paced, but Death Note's was done very well. I'd imagine that even those who haven't read the manga would be drawn into the story instantly.
Blitz
^ The part with him writing all those names was so well done. Whenever he swung his pen, it was like he was stabbing someone. Kudos to Mad House for that scene.
