A brilliant series that I have already watched [the anime] twice before buying this box set! I would say that it's my favourite series. As for the actual box set itself: it is also very good. It comes with the 12 volumes that make up the story as well as a 13th volume which is like a behind the scenes book sort of like what the authors were thinking etc which has L's true name as well as a booklet of all of the Death Note rules which I think are collected from the pages between chapters in some of the volumes. There is a fantastic artwork on the side of the box that is making it difficult for me to decide which side to have facing the front. It's way cheaper than buying all of the volumes and you get the How To Use booklet I already described that I couldn't find anywhere else on it's own. I'm very pleased with my purchase.
