Death Note is one of those series that appeals to hardcore anime fans and non-anime enthusiasts equally. A cult classic, Death Note garnered enough attention to get a (disastrous) Netflix adaptation as well. A large majority of fans consider Death Note to be a masterpiece in terms of storytelling, characterization, and themes. So, what is it that makes this anime so great? There are several reasons Death Note is so highly rated and widely popular. The series is significantly darker compared to mainstream shonen anime like One Piece or Naruto. The central theme of the show is 'justice' and punishment befitting the crime. But how Death Note makes this well-worn theme fascinating is by exploring how ambiguous morality is and how justice itself can be twisted. The protagonist of the show, Light Yagami, is a straight-laced high school student who finds a notebook that allows him to kill anyone whose name is written in the notebook. This notebook itself is the Death Note, which the title of the series directly refers to. When the shinigami whom the notebook belongs to, called Ryuk, appears and tells Light the consequences of using the notebook, Light's decision is what kickstarts the story. Though not belonging to the mortal realm, the Death Note isn't all-powerful and in fact, works only when a specific set of conditions are fulfilled. Deducing these conditions is how world-renowned consultant detective 'L' sets about cracking the case when a series of mysterious deaths of criminals baffles the Japanese police force.
The right way to Be In The highest 10 With Manga
The series soon becomes a psychological war between Light and L, each trying to outsmart the other. They develop a strange bond as well, as L calls Light his first friend at a critical point in the show. L's eccentric personality and social detachment is also something fans love. He is unnervingly complementary to Light, who throughout the series spirals downwards into an almost maniacal obsession with justice and punishment, all the while trying to protect his real identity from the police, including his father Soichiro Yagami, Chief of the National Police Agency. Nicknamed 'Kira' on social media, Light gradually develops a God complex and we see all apparent sense of morality being discarded as Light starts killing anyone who stands in his way. Complicated things more is the character of Misa Amane, the owner of a second Death Note. Unhealthily obsessed with Light, Misa becomes a pawn for Light as he uses any and all tricks to derail L's suspicions while trying to discover his real name and kill him using the Death Note. Despite being a psychological thriller, Death Note manages to incorporate humor, and that too through Ryuk, of all people. The terrifying-looking shinigami is addicted to apples, the "forbidden fruit" of mythology and even goes into withdrawal without them, giving rise to one of the more iconic quotes of the show. Dramatic animation and voice acting adds to the flair of the show. The infamous potato chip-eating scene might be the butt of many jokes, but no one can deny the significance or execution of the scene.
Death Note is a fantastic series and deserving of the hype it receives.
The show plummets after L's death. The original chemistry between L and Light is lost and L's successors, Near and Mello, don't seem to cut it. Both characters appear one-dimensional and do not have enough character development to keep the viewers invested anymore. Light's fate was sealed from the moment he used the Death Note for the first time. However, his rise as a proper anti-hero coincides with L entering the scene as the two become arch nemeses. The buildup anticipating a final showdown between Light and L is abruptly over and the pacing of the story falls apart like a Jenga tower after that. The sudden timeskip too messes up the quality of the show as the anime fails to provide enough context and basically drags the chase out. Death Note is a fantastic series and deserving of the hype it receives. While the show does have its ups and downs, and the storyline suffers during the latter part of the series, Death Note is an appropriate gateway for those looking to dabble with anime.
Why Was Satoru Gojo Sealed?
Epic Dope is the new home of streaming news, views and reviews. No Comments on Is Satoru Gojo's Fate Decided? Will He Be Unsealed Or Is He Sealed Forever? Gege Akutami shocked us all in Chapter 91 by sealing away Satoru Gojo, one of the most popular and overpowered characters in Jujutsu Kaisen. Ever since, I've been left holding my breath in anticipation- wondering when, how, and whether he can be freed at all. The series of unfortunate events that followed, known as the Shibuya Arc, had me on the edge of my seat all throughout. Things escalated quickly, and by the end, Gojo was deemed an accomplice, banned from the Jujutsu world and removing the seal from the Prison Realm and freeing him deemed a criminal act. According to Master Tengen, Satoru Gojo can be unsealed using the back end of the Prison Realm. Yuji, Yuta, and Megumi have to find a sorcerer named Angel, who can terminate all techniques to open the back end of the Prison Realm. Why Was Satoru Gojo Sealed? Kenshuku's plan involves forcing the evolution of humans to optimize cursed energy by assimilating them with Master Tengen.
He has also released a deluge of curses and awoken several cursed objects as part of the Culling Game- the first part of his elaborate plan. However, the second part appears to be way more sinister, as Chapter 167 hints at the complete annihilation of the surviving sorcerers amidst Kenshuku's meeting with high-ranking Chinese government officials. Gojo was sealed alive to prevent interference in Kenshuku's plans. Gojo is the first sorcerer to inherit both the Limitless and the Six Eyes in the last 100 years. He is capable of beating Kenshuku and foiling his plans like the previous users of the Six Eyes. Kenshuku's plans have been warned by those possessing the Six Eyes before. Despite killing the Six Eyes before they were no less than one month old, the technique was inherited by another right away. Since more than one person cannot possess the technique at a given time, Kenshku then shifted his focus to sealing away the Six Eyes rather than killing them and began his search for the Prison Realm.
II. Is Gojo Dead?
While Gojo's return would significantly tip the scales in our heroes' favor, there's speculation that there'll be a bloodbath. Gojo would likely go on a rampage exterminating the Jujutsu higher-ups and Kenshuku's forces. As it stands, he's already incensed with the prolonged hypocrisy of the Jujutsu clans and that his closest friend's corpse is being disrespectfully used as a flesh puppet. So, when he learns of Nanami's death, Yaga's murder at the hands of Principal Gakuganji, and the magnitude of Kenshuku's horrific plans, there'll be no stopping him from eliminating them all in one fell swoop. II. Is Gojo Dead? Gojo was sealed alive in Chapter 91 and is shown to be alive within the Prison Realm. The Prison Realm is a living barrier capable of sealing nearly anything. Time does not pass within the Prison Realm, as stated by Gojo himself. In Chapter 90, Kenshku states that the seal can be lifted in 100 or 1000 years.
It is not clear whether Gojo will be kept alive within the Prison Realm for that long, but it is known that the Prison Realm can hold only one person at a given time and cannot be used again unless the person sealed within it kills themself. The various skeletons surrounding Gojo in the Prison Realm may belong to those previously sealed within it. Is Gojo Sealed Forever? Yuji Itadori, Megumi Fushiguro, and Yuta Okkotsu are currently working towards freeing Gojo. Yuta has already entered the Culling Game ahead of Yuji and Megumi to gather information. They have obtained the back end of the Prison Realm from Master Tengen and are looking for a sorcerer named Hana Kurusu, also known as Angel, whose Cursed Technique can terminate all other techniques. The back end alone cannot simply be used to free Gojo as only the person in possession of the front end has the authority to open the Prison Realm. Obtaining the front end from Kenshuku would be near to impossible.
Thus, to open the back end, it would have to be broken open with a Cursed Technique such as Angel's, which nullifies other Cursed Techniques. While Gojo's return would significantly tip the scales in our heroes' favor, there's speculation that there'll be a bloodbath. Gojo would likely go on a rampage exterminating the Jujutsu higher-ups and Kenshuku's forces. As it stands, he's already incensed with the prolonged hypocrisy of the Jujutsu clans and that his closest friend's corpse is being disrespectfully used as a flesh puppet. So, when he learns of Nanami's death, Yaga's murder at the hands of Principal Gakuganji, and the magnitude of Kenshuku's horrific plans, there'll be no stopping him from eliminating them all in one fell swoop. It is currently unclear whether Angel is an ally or a foe. If she is an ally and does agree to use her Cursed Technique, Gojo could instantly be unsealed. Angel may be a foe and may disagree with unsealing Gojo due to her own personal motives. To further complicate matters, at the end of Chapter 137, Satoru Gojo was declared an accomplice in the Shibuya Incident and exiled from the Jujutsu world. Unsealing him was also deemed a criminal act.
