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… ;)

  2. Zato-Sama says:

    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.

    Jesus Christ..!
    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 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.

Captain Earth – 02 & 03

Bones is a studio that does many different types of series,but their one niche they keep coming back to is the mecha shows. It’s a good thing that they manage to do mecha series really well and keep doing enough things to make it interesting, otherwise I would have called lazy. Of course, I can […]

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 […]

Mushishi – Tokubetsu-hen

Mushishi holds a really special place in my heart. Back in November 2005, when I started up this blog, Mushishi was one of the first shows I picked up to cover weekly. At first I didn’t think much behind it: it just looked interesting and I wanted to cover it, but as it went on […]

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure Review – 89/100

There are a lot of ways to adapt something. Shounen battle series tend to very quickly fall into a very dull variation of that: really slow pacing that goes on forever with long boring drawn out battles that all look like each other. David Production looked at them, and just said “we can do better!” […]

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure – 26

Oh Jojo. What an ending. I did not expect what would happen here at all. Perhaps the ending was not as impressive as with Psycho Pass or From the New World, but still this is every way in which a shounen series should end. You hear that, other shounen series? Watch this for how endings […]

Okay, so I thought that this was the final episode so I was ready to go all out. And then at the end of this episode there was this “To be continued”-message. Yeah, I was confused. But boy, am I glad, because it means that there will be one more episode of Jojo. They managed […]

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 […]

Normally I try to avoid spoilers with these reviews, but screw it, it’s Pokemon. Pokemon The Origin is a bomb of nostalgia.

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.

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 […]

Yondemasuyo, Azazel-San Z Review – 82,5/100

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. […]

I like surprises, like when a series comes that just turns out to be good against my expectations.

And they […]
