Setting the Hook

"This volume is the one that really hooked me on the series. The first dvd is more of a setup for the cat and mouse game between L and Light. This volume dives more into the game that they play L trying to uncover any clues and Light trying to remain anonymous. Episode 5 is amazing, really driving the story forward as well as episode 8. Episode 6 and 7 unfortunately seem more filler and could have been condensed into one I think but the other episodes make up for it I think. Rating only a 4 because of middle 2 episodes dragging the story out and the eyes on the Light figurine look a little weird, one is looking ahead while the other is looking to the right, doesn't seem right to me..."

"First off I have to talk about the Light Figurne. What might put you off getting the Limited Editon Death Note vol 2 is the cost, although it's not much more than the one without the figurine some of you might not what to pay that little bit more; but trust me, it's worth it, theres a great feeling in knowing that there's only 1500 of something in the world and you own one.(So what I'm saying if you can try to get this before it's sold out, you might not get another chance)
With vol 1 you got a Ryuk figurine, in comparison the Light one is much smaller than Ryuk. Also, because his hand is sticking out the paint on his finger tips might be worn slightly in the packet. Other than that he's great.
This vol has episodes 5-8 and a lot happens in them. Light has to fend off the FBI agents. The team on the Kira case finaly meet L face to face and he's not quite what they thought he would be. And now not only does Light have a deal with L bugging his home, but someone may know something about "Kira's" power that could help L get that much closer to finding out who Kira really is. Worst of all poor Ryuk as to go without his loverly apples! But the best bit is the episode prevew on the last ep of the disk, making you want the next one all the more.
Extras: English voice actor intervies and recrding sessions-(this time it's L) If you're anything like me you won't like this bit as the actors have no clue what they are talking about, you think "my god, if you want to know what happens next so badly read the manga"(and if you havn't read it yet eather you really should)
Japanese animation director and character designer interviw-
probably the strongist of the extras
and Audio commentary-
but yet again the actors don't know what the hell they're talking about.
So, yeah you should get this, or if you don't want to spend the little extra on this get the one without the figurine, if that's still too much for you then just get the manga(all 12 vol's are out now)"
A series you can't miss!!

"I began watching this series on Adult Swim (Cartoon Network). I was instantly hooked. I couldn't help notice how well thought out the storyline is. It one of those series that is so elegantly put together, the story just draws you in. When you feel the emotions experienced by the characters, you know it's good. For those who think that all dubbed anime is terrible, you couldn't be more wrong. VIZ, the production company, has completely redid each episode so the characters actually appear to be speaking English--this is not some crappy dub-over. However, if you still insist on reading subtitles, you can always change the DVD options. And of course, this isn't just for younger audiences. This is one series you can't pass up!!!!"
One of the best series ever.

"Honestly, this is one of the best tv series ever simply because of the mental part of it. There isn't so much action in the sense of people fighting. It's all about the mental warfare. This series will keep you guessing what is going to happen inbetween each episode and as you're watching the episode itself. This is something that everybody and anybody should watch at least once through.
The Bad Part: It technically ended with the resolution at the end of the first "season". You can tell what part I'm talking about when you see it. Then because the fans loved it so much and they pressured him, he went about making a second "season". Think of it really being two books in the set. The second set of episodes takes some episodes to really get along. He had to take it slow to keep the human reactions in the show realistic as opposed to them "magically" figuring somthing out or slipping up. So that's it's only real downside.
There is one other part I don't particularly care for, but I can't say because it's a spoiler. If you enjoy the series, you'll know instantly what part I mean when you see it. ;)"
