Life is a series of choices. Every step is a choice, an option, a decision. We try our best to make these choices based on what we know. What we pick may not be based on what is right and what is wrong, but what we believe in our minds and hearts. Whatever we do decide, we have to compromise. It is always one or the other.

Death Note: Anime vs. Movie

I first read the Death Note manga. A few weeks later the Anime was released! Then I went ahead to watching both movies! What more can I say than pure genius! This anime is incomparable to any I have seen. It has its sheer of wit, sci-fi, and suspense! What I enjoyed most was the similarity between the Anime and the Manga. It was completely superb. The soundtrack was really befitting and very well done. It was very smooth and quite clear. The movie lacked this quality, the soundtrack seemed a little vague and wasn’t as powerful as it was in the Anime.

The second movie was a very long one, and well worth it. Even with the extreme changes to the story, it was very well done! The change does not quite introduce new elements to the story, but it has been shifted around a little to accommodate the turn of events. They don’t have the luxury of hours of story time like the anime, but it was quite well done.

What really did it for me was the ending of the second movie! If you haven’t watched it, you have to watch it because it is an alternate ending! Can you believe it? An alternate ending that would usually seem quite boring, and would most probably hurt the story. Not in this case, I loved this ending as much as the ending of the actual Anime.

I don’t usually post anime reviews, but this one extremely worthy!

    I have read the mangas but I still yet to watch the anime. I actually didn’t know there are two movies so thanks for that. Hopefully I’ll catch it and watch them.

    They’re all worthy, the Movies are a bit lacking in terms of soundtrack and whatnot, but they’re fun to watch.
