Despite what some may say, this is as great as adaptation of the mangaas one could ask for. The actors portray their characters perfectly.The calm menace of Light is portrayed perfectly, with a cleardistinction between Light and "Kira" Light, which is impressiveconsidering anime would allow stronger visual cues. L is an honest togod incarnation of his manga and anime counter part down to thesmallest detail. Ryuk is also impressive, the CGI effects do himjustice and his voice is much better then the one for the subbed animewhich was horrendous.<br><br>Now obviously the plot needed to be condensed and changed but they didvery well. All the important parts are there and the ending, whichstrays far from the manga, is actually even better then what actuallyhappened in that instance in the story. It wasn't conveyed the complexstory involving a genius highschool student who's use of a notebookthat kills people that get's him involved in a proverbial chess matchwith the detective L, but they did a fine job. Misa, despite her shortscreen time, acted the part of Misa perfectly, down to the voice.<br><br>Fans of the manga should enjoy as long as they don't expect an exactreplica of the manga, and fans of thrillers should enjoy this as well.<br><br>9.5/10
