The delivery time was also amazing, came a day earlier than predicted! The packaging was neat and protected the book well. The book came with no scratches or tears, which is definitely positive.
I would recommend the death note black edition series to anyone. The design is better and the pages are of better quality!
At the end of the previous volume Light was resigned to living for a while under surveillance whilst his Shinigami 'Death God' Ryuk drifted through his room spotting all the hidden cameras and microphones. There's less detail around individual killings in this book, with book 1 (containing the original volumes 1 & 2) having already established the method behind the Death Note and how Light aims to create a better society, one where he has ultimate control.
This volume focuses on what is perhaps the most intriguing aspect of the Death Note franchise - the battle between Light and super sleuth L. The two finally meet quite early on in this book and the rivalry between them builds to create great tension. The dynamic between L and Light is exciting and makes for a very compelling read. After spending time together at school and both attempting to fake a plausable friendship, L surprisingly declares Light to be his only friend, something which initially appears to be a throw-away line, but it resonates deeply. It doesn't stop him from openly admitting that Light is still his main suspect though and he plays mind games by getting him to 'pretend' to be Kira in fake TV broadcasts. L seems torn between a genuine respect for Light's intellect and his suspicion that he's the most infamous mass-murderer of all time.
To complicate things for the two lead characters - another Kira appears on the scene.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
