Deathnote, first serialised in the weekly shonen jump magazine, follows the story of light yagami an ace student who discovers a note book dropped by the gods of death (shinigami) after discovering its purpose he sets to use it to rid the world of criminals and make it a better place. However soon the japanese police catch onto the similarities of death and set master detective L on the case to catch Kira. This series follows that epic battle of wits and morals.
This series is both beautifully drawn and written with a gripping plot that unlike many manga series will really make you think about the mental workings of characters as they are pitted against each other. This makes the plot completely engaging from to start to end as you follow the twists and turns (all pleasantly un predicatable)
I completely recommend this series to new and old manga fans alike as well as those just starting out. Amazon provides well priced copies so pick one up today.
