I couldn’t GIVE The book AWAY FOR FREE!
The condition it was in when we opened the package left me speechless!!!It had soda stains splattered all over it. The pages were bent, torn and stuck together!My son waited and waited for this book...He was so let down and disappointed that it broke my heart!!! And no where in the details said it was in such bad condition!!
First two volumes, incredible. This one, it seems that the story is dragging on unnecessarily.
First two volumes, incredible. This one, it seems that the story is dragging on unnecessarily, adding new conflicts and characters. The original conflict between Kira and L was the draw of the story. In this volume, the focus on this is lost.
Too Many Kiras
Death Note Black Edition III begins with the capture of Light and Misa Misa. Then, it introduces a third Kira. This Kira is an executive at an international corporation, and along with a group of others, he decides who to kill to benefit the corporation. L and the two other Kiras, Light and the former second Kira, Misa Misa, are after him. The majority of this collection is the Third Kira arc, which wraps up at the end of the collection, continuing on in Black Edition IV.Too many Kiras. I loved Black Edition I and Black Edition II, but I was lukewarm to this volume. Basically, I read Death Note to see what Light's up to, and in this volume, he doesn't use his Death Note once. Misa Misa has forgotten that she ever was the second Kira, and Light's under constant supervision, so he can't kill anyone. The ending of the volume, the last 50 or 75 pages, was awesome, though.. ***1/2
Completeing a series.
This is to complete a series read many years ago. The concept of the series is what happens when a Shinkogami (or death god) drops it's notebook on Earth. When a teenager finds the notebook he suddenly has power over death. How he handles thar power or more to the point how it handles him is what gives this 12 volume series it's story. The Black editions each contain two books out of the series. Book 3 has books 5 & 6 in it. This series has an OLDER teen rating. So please parents learn what the manga/graphic novel system means before buying these or any other manga for your kids. Older teen means just that, they are not suitable for young kids or younger teens.
Beautiful version of Death Note. I usually buy books I like with the most attractive covers since I collect and put them on my bookshelf, and this Black Edition is absolutely gorgeous!!
Better packaging is needed!!!
Your browser does not support HTML5 video. I love this black edition, its super awesome, but people you should be careful when you ship books, you should put them in something so they don’t get damaged. Because people who deliver them don’t care what’s inside the package, they just throw them, bend them and book gets ruined! It’s very disappointing.
Thanks it’s in great condition and I think I’ll like it :)
Brand new and no tears. Love it.
Creepy part 2!
Bought this for my son. He had been speaking to his friends about this at school and asked if he could have the books. When this arrived, the cover is black and the edge of the pages are black also. Looks seriously cool. The story is good and quite an interesting idea really as it shows what good/bad could be done if someone actually had this kind of power with a death note. The illustrations are absolutely fantastic and the book kept my son absolutely enthralled until he had read the entire series!
I’ve read a few of the books. It’s like most anime.Made for 13 year old boys who fantasise about being a broody mysterious boy who has all the girls swooning over him. Light Yagami takes cringe to a new extreme.The death note itself was such a decent idea, but it was ruined by the dumbing down of every other character to make light seem cooler/ better/ smarter.I get it, he’s the main character and he’s supposed to be smart.But its all very cringe, awful and just ruins such a good concept.
What I love about the manga of death note is that it helps you understand the storyline better. For example whilst I was watching the anime, I couldn't get what was happening in the Yotsuba scenes but because it is written out it makes perfect sense. Honestly the manga isn't a waste and there is also added bits. If you have or havnt seen the death note anime, the manga is a great buy.
An amazing manga series
Death Note has to be one of the greatest manga/anime series that ever exsisted. This volume takes place from when Light loses his memory and until Higuchi is caught, and may be one of the best parts of this series. It may not contain Near, Mello or Evil Light, but this story ark has the memorable end of the new kira, at the hand of Matsuda-san's broadcast, as well as Matsuda faking his own death. It truly is amazing.As for the quality, it came untouched - the only signs of anything on it were some white talcum-power like things, that were easily rubbed off. A truly amazing book, must buy for death note fans!
Dark manga for tweenagers
