Today, I'll recommend you 「DEATH NOTE」 which is created by writer Tsugumi Ohba and manga artist Takeshi Obata. It is one of the most famous and popular comics in Japan^^ And also, it is popular all over the world. In fact, those are sold in Brazil ,too♪ Then, I'll show you the summary of this comic.

Light Yagami is an extremely intelligent young man who resents what appears to be a rellentless increase of crime and corruption in the world around him. His life undergoes a drastic change when he discovers a mystery notebook , known as the "Death Note", lying on the ground. The Death Note's instruction's claim that if a human's name is written within it, that person shall die. After meeting with the previous owner of the Death Note , the god of death named Ryuk,Light seeks to become "the God of the New World" by passing his keen judgment on those he deems to be evil or who get in his way. Soon ,the number of inexplicable death of reported criminals catches the attention of the International Police Organization and mysterious detective known only as "L" . He is also an extremely intelligent young man. L quickly learns that the serious killer dubbed by the public as "Kira"(derived from the typical Japanese pronunciation of the English word 'killer' ) is located in Japan. He also concludes that Kira can kill people without laying a finger on them. Light realizes that L will be his greatest enemy, and a game of psychological cat and mouse between the two begins.

This comic is really interesting! And also, this story gives us something to think seriously. In this story , most of the people became to praise and support "Kira" even if he kills a lot of people. Because, the world became safety by Kira's existence. What do you think about this? Do you support "Kira" if such a thing happen in real society? This comic includes many deep messages in the story. I think this is also one of the reason why it is very popular and famous among the people.

And also, this comic was adopted into a series of live-action films in 2006. It had great success.
Look at the casts in it which are on the pictures below.

Don't you think they lookes like they came right out of a comic?
Like this, this movie's cast was a great success with the public.
And ,the story was little different from the story written in comic,,,BUT! It was also very interesting(><) So,you can enjoy this movie even if you didn't read the comics.
I think those are why this movie could have great success. And also, after a moment, the movie「L change the World」 (L is a protagonist in this movie) was screened. It also had a great success. It is one of the my favorite movies(><)♡ I recommend not only the comics but also these movies (><)!!

My most favorite character is 「L」♡
He is a person with striking personality. So, he is very funny and cute. And also, he is genius and very cool.I think he is a real justice.

I recommend you to read 「DEATH NOTE」.
I think this is one of the masterpieces in Japan.
These sites has informations about it in details.

Sorry, Both of them are Japanese sites(--;)
But those are very artistic because those are official sites of 「DEATH NOTE」.
Thank you^^♪
