I found the title of this DVD to be quite misleading. The film wasn't 'through the eyes of a Shinigami' but was just a long series catch up with one new scene. I was very disappointed with this DVD as it was not what I was expecting. If you have already seen the anime then I would not recommend this, your better off re-watching the series as this DVD is quite rushed as misses out some good parts. I really was looking forward to seeing it from Ryuk. As a massive Ryuk fan, I was disappointed about how little he was even in it! Overall, I enjoyed a re-cap of the series but found this to be a little pointless, even for people who have never seen Death Note before, This misses out far too much info for it to make sense. I rate this 2 stars.
