Light Yagami is an ace student with great prospects — and he's bored out of his mind. But all that changes when he finds the Death Note, a notebook dropped by a rogue Shinigami death god. Any human whose name is written in the notebook dies, and now Light has vowed to use the power of the Death Note to rid the world of evil. Will Light's noble goal succeed, or will the Death Note turn him into the very thing he fights against?(From Viz Media)

A film based on the Death Note series is scheduled for an August 2017 release on Netflix.
