Director: Shūsuke Kaneko Year: 2006 The best things about the Death Note manga, the story of a young man who can kill people simply by writing their names in a supernatural book, are the various demons that are attached to the titular Death Notes (the super-tight plots and insane twists don’t hurt either). When we saw that the CG demons in this were totally faithful 3D versions of the ones in the comic, we knew it would be good. And we were right, as usual. We’re always right, about everything. Also, we’re very handsome.
