Another guest review has come in to us and we would like to thank Emma Carveth-Marshall for doing it.
Death Note: Black Volume 1 by Takeshi Obata
Death Note vol. 1 shows well drawn graphics, an anti-hero as main character that surprises/shocks, a *monster* that becomes actually…endearing, controversial themes that will provoke raw emotions along with deep thoughts and a writing and dialog that make the characters look real and three dimensional without a doubt.
I think the plot could have been more developed, though. The Shinigami world better seen and much more exploited and maybe even contain a notable amount of interesting descriptions for the creatures inside it, because it lacked of it. Badly.
Nonetheless, one of the most original manga volumes I’ve had the chance to read in months!
Thanks for the review, Emma. Maybe I should give them a go.
