Death Note 08: Potato Chips That Kills

Compared to last week’s episode, there was quite a bit of plot development and action in this episode. Unfortunately, the animation suffered a bit as well. Ryuk looks positively weird in a lot of the scenes, not just because of the action involved or that he was suffering from Apple withdrawal. L and Light had a few scenes where they look slightly off as well, though not too noticeable. However, the rest of the episode look pretty good still, so I guess they put most of the budget of this episode into special and video effects and the dirty magazines. j/k Seriously though, I really thought the dirty magazines were drawn better Ryuk in this episode.

Even the very small parts that were focused on L could be called a slight interruption in Light’s ploy to get rid of Naomi.

A number of my co-workers and other friends went to see the movie in the last weekend, and most of them thought that the last part of the movie, when everything began to unravel to be confusing. Some of them missed that if the Death Note is given up, your memory of the Death Note is lost, so they didn’t understand the part when Light and Misa lost their memory as well. Most of them contributed their confusion to the difficulty of reading the subtitle and they are not used to it.
