This is one ‘Death Note’ book that could actually kill you.
Why read your Death Note manga one volume at a time when you can read a complete edition the size of an unabridged dictionary?
Publisher Shueisha released a gigantic version of the popular manga in Japan this week that combines all 12 volumes into one monstrous book. Geek.com reports that all of the books are already sold out in stores. At just $25 for the whole thing, it really was a great deal.
While Death Note fans in the U.S. don’t have access to the mega manga, there is a box set on Amazon that will put the complete series in your hands for just under $70. Your arm muscles will probably thank you for picking up the volumes one at a time.
Over 2,400 pages, Death Note tells the story of a teenager named Light Yagami, who find himself in possession of a supernatural notebook used by the spirits of death (the titular death note). Given the power to kill by writing names in the book, Light spirals into megalomania as he starts murdering people under the auspices of “cleansing” the world. The death spirit Ryuk, who dropped the notebook into the human world, finds all of this pretty entertaining. Meanwhile, a detective who goes only by the name “L” attempts to find the source of the mysterious killings and put a stop to them. Lots more happens later in manga and its popular anime, but we won’t spoil the suspenseful story for you.
Netflix is developing a live-action Death Note film that will premiere in 2017.
