Death Note is remarkably terrible anyway.

Explain how it (the anime, not the Western adaptation) is terrible

Seriously? Every single episode, summed up, is:

Light: "I'M A SUPER-ULTRAGENIUS AND I KNOW THAT YOU KNOW THAT I KNOW THAT YOU KNOW THAT I KNOW THAT YOU WERE GOING TO DO SOMETHING!"

L: "AHA! BUT I'M A MEGA-SUPER-ULTRAGENIUS AND I KNEW THAT YOU KNEW THAT I KNEW THAT YOU KNEW THAT I KNEW THAT, AND I KNOW YOU KNOW I WAS GOING TO DO SOMETHING, SO I DID SOMETHING ELSE!"

Light: "AHA! BUT I'M A MONDO-TURBO-MEGA-SUPER-ULTRAGENIUS AND I KNEW THAT YOU KNEW THAT I KNEW THAT YOU KNEW THAT I KNEW THAT, AND I KNEW YOU KNEW I WAS GOING TO DO SOMETHING ELSE, AND I KNEW THAT YOU KNEW THAT, AND I KNOW THAT YOU KNOW THAT THAT GUY KNOWS THAT I KNOW THAT WE ALL KNOW, SO I DID SOMETHING TOTALLY DIFFERENT!"

Every fucking episode, dude. It's the most retarded goddamn shit ever. I seriously can't figure out what the fuck the writers were going for except that they were wildly stroking their dicks off thinking that this awful level of writing was somehow "intellectual" or made for a clever mystery.

The entire cat-and-mouse bullshit goes on for like 20 goddamn hours worth of episodes and ultimately it seems to entirely revolve around six trillion totally unpredictable coincidences that magically always align while everybody operates on secret knowledge they couldn't actually possibly know.

There were like three actually clever elements in the show that I saw, like when he hid the Death Note behind a sleeve of paper and had the guy write his friends' names on it. Everything else was just "Stupid Shit™" like I described where they were foiling plans within plans within plans within plans within plans within plans because we just totally had to play up the stupid fucking "THEY'RE BOTH SO SMART" garbage.

Good write up fren, guess I'll skip it (or maybe watch to confirm the badness). I asked because it's one of those series that always seemed to be popular and recommended but I never got around to watching. Sounds like a good decision then eh
