Site Launched for Death Note 10th Anniversary
Over 10 years ago, Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata’s manga Death Note began publication in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump. From there, the series has been adapted into anime, light novels, video games, and live-action movies, becoming one of the most popular series of all time. Now, two months after the actual tenth anniversary, Shueisha is gearing up for something.
A website was launched earlier today with a countdown timer. The timer, which will reach its end on Monday, March 3rd at 12PM EST, is going to reveal the details of the tenth anniversary special thing, whatever that may be. Under the timer is Japanese text which translates to, “If you touch this note, your memory will revive.” If you hover your mouse over the Death Note on screen, Ryuk shows up.
While I’m as much a fan of Death Note as the next guy, I’m not exactly going to be counting down the seconds to the reveal. Death Note was fine as it was. I haven’t gotten into any of the stuff past the manga or the anime, and I have no real desire to. Maybe this tenth anniversary thing will spark my interest in some new Death Note stuff. I guess we’ll see on Monday.
