If you’re in the mood for something a little darker than our previous offering, then Death Note should be your next stop. Like many of the best anime to ever air, the series is based on a manga of the same name, and closely follows its printed counterpart in terms of plot. Speaking of plot, the titular “Death Note” is a mysterious book with the ability to kill anyone whose name is written within its pages. It falls into the hands of Light Yagami, who quickly decides to try and rid the world of those he deems morally impure through the use of the book’s dark powers. This is a show full of moral ambiguity, and which never shies away from posing complex, thought-provoking conundrums to keep even the most practiced of philosophers up at night.
