The original founders of Death Note, author Tsugumi Ohba and singer Takeshi Obata returned to the series with a series of short stories following Light Yagami’s attempt to change the world.
Death Note Season 2
Death Note Short Stories will be a collection of single manga shortcuts showing how the world was affected by the use of Light Yagami’s Death Dead Note in the first series. The new collection has been announced for this year’s VIZ Media panel in New York Comic-Con and is currently scheduled to be released sometime in the summer of 2022.
The original Death Note told the story of Light Yagami, a visionary and intelligent young man who randomly discovered a book entitled “Death of Death” on the ground one day. Picking it up, Light is met by an amazing-looking creature named Ryuk, a member of a race known as the evil Shinigami harvesters who have the ability to see when people are dying.
Flight learns that Death Note also gives him this power, and now he has the power to kill anyone by simply writing his name in a book. Light begins to unleash notorious criminals, but his campaign to spy on the world to eradicate evil eventually attracts authorities and a well-respected secret detective known as “L.”
Death Note remains the most famous creation from Ohba and Obata. The supernatural thriller was organized from 2003 – 2006 in Weekly Shonen Jump and successfully transformed into a popular anime series by One-Punch Man studio Madhouse in 2009. Both anime and lies were major genres, and manga sold more than 50 million copies worldwide.
The series became a global phenomenon, and schools in several countries tried to block the series, citing situations in which children made their own Death Notes by writing down the names of classmates and teachers who wished to mistreat them. The series was also changed to the first Netflix movie in 2017 starring Nat Wolff, Lakeith Stanfield, and Willem Dafoe. Despite the worst reception, Netflix is producing a movie series, with Mortal Kombat (2021) author Greg Russo attached to the project.
