Death Note

Death Note ★★★★½

Death Note is expressionism in the form of a high stakes thriller. The show asks the difficult questions of abusive relationships, capital punishment and vigilantism. Light Yagami is like Thanos in the sense that he wants to make the word a better place but takes an radical approach after receiving the Death Note. He abuses his power when It benefits him and him alone. L, on the other hand represents the more heartless and systemic form of control.

The actual battle between Light and L is amazing. There is so much at stake that creates so much tension between the two.
