I’ve just ripped the Japanese audio from the first 8 episodes of the Death Note anime boxset to my iPod for some easy listening as I’m falling asleep.
In case you’re not familiar with the series, these are the basics:
Light Yagami is an intelligent young adult who resents all things evil. He also wishes to end crime in the world and create a utopia in which he reigns supreme. His life undergoes a drastic change when he discovers the Death Note, a notebook that contains five written instructions:
The human whose name is written in this notebook shall die.
This notebook will not take effect unless the writer has the subject’s face in their mind when writing his/her name. Therefore, people sharing the same name will not be affected.
If the cause of death is written within 40 seconds of writing the person’s name, it will happen.
If the cause of death is not specified, the person will simply die of a heart attack.
After writing the cause of death, the details of the death should be written in the next 6 minutes and 40 seconds.
I will learn Japanese and/or have brilliant nightmares. Can’t wait.
