GOD DAMMIT!!

That’s got to be the worst cliff-hanger EVER! How can the creators expect me to wait for an ENTIRE WEEK FOR THE NEXT EPISODE?!?!

Agh, this is going to be a short entry, because I refuse to spoil what happens, but let me tell you this: THIS QUITE POSSIBLY WAS THE BEST EPISODE OF DEATH NOTE YET! It’s been a long time since an episode had so much tension as this one. If you excuse me now, I need to relieve my frustration on some unfortunate object.

    You could read the manga – no need to wait for next week and you’ll save yourself another ‘kirie eleison’ in the background, too… ;)

    ahha i feel you ^^ im trying to figure out if near really is that easy to predict or if light just THINKS he has near where he wants him… Has to be something else 2 it :P

  3. Kite says:

    I told you not to get so excited! But it was going to happen either way! xD

  4. yoshi927 says:

    I would advise not reading the manga. If you wait for the ending, it’ll be that much cooler. (I read the manga. I would know… sort of…)

  5. deltazechs says:

    Don’t read the manga! You already made it this far without reading it, so let the finale thrill you to its fullest potential. (I kinda regret the fact that I already know the ending, since I read the manga long ago)

    Where can i find a subbed version of this?

  7. spencer says:

    Nevermind, I found one.

    I really wonder now ehat is going to happen in the next episode..
    I mean, if something goes wrong and they don’t die all in the room, then ALL of them should know that Light is Kira(he shouted at the end”Its my win Near!”)
    But if they die all of them (except Light) then there will be NO ONE else on earth who will know the existence of this book, so… NO MORE POLICE-SECRET SERVICES, P’s,Q’s,’R’s hunting..
    Kira will just keep murdering the whole world until he dies..
    But there is a small possibility that second Kira, will ELLIMINATE ALL (LIGHT TOO!!!), in order to remain the only RULER of this world..

    Whatever happens, i really hope at the end, Light to be burned in a place worst than Hell forever in order to find atonishments for what he did…

    *SPOILER*
    Light’s mother is REM, the death god, and light’s father is JESUS. He dies for Light’s sins.

    The real L actually comes back from the grave and everyone realizes that he is KAMI!!!!!!!!!(God)

    *SPOILER*

  10. illumi says:

    I seriously doubt that that’s going to happen… :D

  11. Penguin Truth says:

    The end is Near!

  12. MM says:

    The end…so disappointing. tsk tsk

  13. asdf says:

    Near is so stupid and arrogant, its not even funny.. he uses hax to solve cases, doesnt have any deducting reasoning skills like L and he doesnt even compare to Light in intelligence. He would have been fucked without Mello, the guy would have got himself killed and every other mofos trying to go after L. L is god, just accept it and live in the euphoric world

  14. zenical says:

    yes this is the worse cliffhanger ever ..

  15. Jorge says:

    I loved this episode (apart from the cliff hanger) because of one special scene…. MIKAMIS CRAZY KAMI LOVING WRITE EVERYONES NAME DOWN look on his face i loved that part. But yea this episode really proves how obnoxious light has become since he thinks he has won already…. well i dont want to ruin anything but i love the ending of the series and im really sad its ending.

  16. lain says:

    Near wins, he totally read lights moves. Near made light look like a dumbass… and obviously Light dies that night in that warehouse. In the end light went crazy and had to rely on to many stupid ppl. Got what he had coming. But yes everything was thankx to L, witouth him near would have killed on the spot.

  17. psgels psgels says:

    Lain, please next time mark your spoilers. I barely avoided looking at them, but seriously.

  18. yoshi927 says:

    @asdf

    Near is comfortably above, “stupid”, thank you. -_-

  19. LifetimetvHATER says:

    Has anyone heard of Devil’s Diary on Lifetime??
    They totally stole the idea from death note. They should be sued!!!

  20. LUVANIME says:

    Yea like how the movie RING originaly came from Japan. But the US made it to it’s own version. Lifetime should be sued for taking DEATH NOTE.

    @Bam So, the theories are exploding. Catherine’s dialogue in the end is pretty interesting as well. I do think there is some meaning behind the end of each episode, which I expect will converge in the next few episodes.

    I was always a hooligan and not the best of kids, always causing trouble in the neighborhood, but we always stood up for the weak and would beat up the bullies (or get beaten up) because of it.

    Ooh, the transvestite I have utmost respect for is Eddie Izzard. Magnificent human, he is. Also, “half-gay….” letting that one sink in a bit.

    I think one of the most lolworthy insults I got out of someone about bisexuality was “Aren’t your parents disappointed in you for being a halfgay”

Mushishi – 07

Now this was such a beautiful episode. We often see Mushi portrayed as parasites. In fact, they are pretty much based on the insects and viruses of their world. There probably are enough real viruses and insects living in the Mushishi world, but they just aren’t the focus of the series. Anyway, what they did […]

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure – Stardust Crusaders – 06 & 07

This is where this arc gets weird. We’re still in adventure modus, however in these two episodes Jotaro not only meets some of the most bizarre Stand users, it’s also done in the most camp way possible. You can see a clear difference with the first two seasons of Jojo: there it was all about […]

Ping Pong – 05 & 06

Episodes 05 and 06 are dedicated to character-development. It’s here where Ping Pong shows that it also knows its stuff in terms of storytelling; the develoment doesn’t start too early or too late, and these two episodes really added depth to all of the different characters, despite that there were no big matches. I’m currently […]

Mushishi – 03 – 06

I have not forgotten about this show. Not at all. I just finished marathoning these four episodes, and holy cheeseballs on a stick! this is the best anime in years! This was everything I could have hoped for and blows just about everything else out of the water. Talk about raw, powerful storytelling. I now […]

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure – 03 – 05

Jojo really is not kind to its females. Every time a hint is even dropped to a girl kicking ass here, it comes with this weird plot-twist that undermines any fighting potential of them. In this arc, it’s the rule that says that your stand will kill you if youaren’t strong enough. And so, Joseph’s […]

Ping Pong – 03 & 04

The opening of Ping Pong wasn’t done in time, so the first two episodes showed a sortof montage as a placeholder. Now we know why, with episode 03 and 04. The creators actually got the single best animator currently in the business to oversee it: Shinya Ohira. This guy understands animation like no other. The […]

Ping Pong – 02

Yes, I know that more people here were involved in making this series beyond Masaaki Yuasa. It’s written by the creator of Tekkon Kinkreet, Taiyo Mashimoto. That guy is awesome. And the combination between those two makes this series even better. Because here’s the thing: anime is significantly different from manga or light novels. Beyond […]

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure – Stardust Crusaders – 02

We can never quite get rid of magic fights at a school, now can we, Jojo. Ah well, I forgive it this time, just due to how hilarious it looks seeing these ridiculously bulky men walk around pretending to be high school students. It’s just so over the top, and yet Jojo sets itself apart […]

Mushishi Season 2 – 02

Oh yes. This is it. This is what storytelling should be about: telling real stories about real people, all with their own problems that need to be overcome. And this show does that time and time again in just one episode. I still can’t believe how authentic this series is. The thing is, when I […]

Nerawareta Gakuen Review – 84/100

Let me talk a bit about Ryousuke Nakamura. For a long time, this guy was my hero. He started off as an assistant director to Monster, in my opinion a big reason why that series got such a ridiculously solid adaptation, and then in 2008 he came with the groundbreaking Mouryou no Hako. No TV-series […]

Kick Heart

Okay, so I didn’t want to exit 2013 without having seen Masaaki Yuasa’s Kick Heart. It’s only twelve minutes anyway, and I consider him to be one of the best anime directors out there. The story here is pretty silly and mostly serves as a backdrop, so I mostly want to talk about the nature […]

Kyousogiga Review – 90/100

Everyone’s taste is different, and that’s a wonderful thing because that allows us to have so many different forms of media that all aim toward their own niche.

Noucome! You do not want to know how long I have been waiting for a series like this. More than half a decade, at the very least. Finally a series comes along and puts the incredibly overused harem genre in its place. And it actually does it well. Thank you! So to elaborate: the harem […]

Pokemon: The Origin Review – 75/100

Normally I try to avoid spoilers with these reviews, but screw it, it’s Pokemon. Pokemon The Origin is a bomb of nostalgia. If you haven’t played Pokemon Red, Blue or Green, then you will not enjoy this one slight bit. This really is made as pure undilluted fanservice for the fans of the first games. […]

Tamayura – More Aggressive Review – 75/100

I’m not going to dedicate a post for my impression for the final three episodes of this series. It was just too boring to write much about. I guess that that gives a pretty accurate indication of what I think about this series. Right at the start of Tamayura’s second season, I asked one question: […]

Silver Spoon Review – 86/100

When Noitamina started airing two series per season, it was amazing. It’s a timeslot that on average tends to be aimed at a much older audience than usual, and having two series with the same mentality definitely helped to bring more diversity to anime overall. Unfortunately it’s a schedule that could not be kept up […]

Reviewing a comedy sequel usually is quite simple: in most cases it just drops the bomb and runs out of inspiration, and in rare cases it actually manages to stay hilarious. The tricky thing with these kinds of series is that you need to remain funny, and you need to have the inspiration for that. […]
