3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By @GeekZilla9000 TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 26 May 2011
Format: Paperback
This third book in the 'black' series contains the original volumes 5 and 6. The pages are larger than the original volumes and the black edged paper means that the book is completely black apart from the subtle design of the cover. There are five colour pages in this book, they are impressive but don't form part of the story as they appear before the start of the manga but they do show off the high level of artwork we've become accustomed to throughout the series so far.

There's a big shift in the way the characters behave with each other in this book as Light really does think that he is innocent of any accusations that he may be Kira - rather than covering his tracks as in the previous books, now he considers himself to have no tracks to cover! He's never looked so guilty though, the killings stop when Light is confined (at his own request).

The perception of L as a flawless genius crumbles when his treatment of Light and Misa are called into question, he's overstepping the line and the investigation team aren't comfortable with the lengths L is prepared to take. When the killings start again however it's clear that there's a new Kira in town with a completely different motive, and killing for money rather than for a perverted form of social engineering makes the 'new Kira' seem less threatening and the gritty unpredictability of Kira's actions is lost.

The battle of wits between Light and L is lacking during the first half of this book (the original volume 5) but their relationship becomes interesting in a very different way during the last half and we are treated to great interaction between the two main characters.

Death Note is without a doubt one of those mangas that practically everyone has at least heard about. No wonder too, the story is interesting and attention-catching. The plot is centered on Light Yagami, who finds a notebook with which he can kill people by writing their names on it, and the police investigation that attempts to put an end to his criminal killing and bring him to justice. It is deep, interesting, with a well-developed plot, and absolutely memorable. This manga is, story-wise and art-wise, fantastic. There is no question about it, and a review based purely on the story would be pointless considering the sheer amount of great existing ones already. I definitely recommend a fan of manga or just purely great works to read this comic. Because of this, this review will be about the quality of the Black Edition book itself and how it compares to the physical tomes. I will note here that I have both the hardback and paperback editions of the black edition, as well as some older volumes of the normal version of the comic.

The design of the Black Editions is just as they should, and feature a basic cover with a headshot of each of the major characters (Light, Ryuk, L, Misa, Mello, and Near). The spine, unlike the normal volumes, doesn’t feature a different shinigami in each volume, but a simpler and neater and simpler design. It seems, in a visual way, to be more reminiscent in this sense of the Death Note itself: formal, elegant, and with a somewhat ominous tone that goes along with the story itself. This extends to the visual look of the pages of the book, which from the outside are completely black.

The main feature of the Black Edition is that in each volume it serves as a two-pack, and in the six published volumes it contains the original 12 books of contents.

Would recommend this to anyone wanting to collect the whole manga series as it is more condensed and includes little extras that make it more worthwhile such as a few coloured pages and the original volume covers (although that is in black and white).
Came to me in good condition too.
