Plot concept: The DEATH NOTE anime series is based on a bestselling manga series written by Tsugumi Ohba and illustrated by Takeshi Obata. Light Yagami is a genius high school student who is about to learn about life through a book of death. When a bored Shinigami, a god of Death, named Ryuk drops a black notepad called a Death Note, Light receives power over life and death with the stroke of a pen. Determined to use this dark gift for the best, Light sets out to rid the world of evil … namely the people he believes to be evil. Should anyone hold such power? The consequences of Light’s actions will set the world ablaze.
