  1. Since they’ve had all the Miyazaki stuff on, I don’t think Nana is far behind.

    I would rather watch Death Note in the original japanese, but I’ve only BTed the first ep, so I might as well record the series as it comes out on TV. I just hope they have a good dub.

  2. OMFG I JUST SAW THE COMMERCIAL AND I CANT WAIT… DEATH NOTE IS ONE OF MY ALL TIME FAVES… WEN I FIRST SAW THE SHOW I SAID IT WOULD BE PERFECT FOR ADULT SWIM AND NOW ITS THERE!!!!!!!!!!!! im gonna piss my pants

  3. Death Note will translate very well to American TV, as long as they don’t change ANYTHING. I’m not a big fan of most anime, but while deployed to the middle east myself and some of the troops stationed with me watched the first season and read the manga, and it became a weekly ritual. I think Death Note will capture the attention of everyone, anime lover or not, and my only hope is that it airs earlier than midnight on a regular basis

  4. NO!!!! WTF! WHY!!!??

    YYYYYYYYYEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSS!

    I’m so glad! I’m dreading it!

    Yay! Deathnote!

    Damn it now all the anime adult swim fanatics will be crowing about
    DEathnote and kill it for me. Sonovabitch. -sighs- Oh well. Deathnote Hype. Get ready for America.

  5. I wish they aired the real life Death Note!! that would ROCK and NANA!! Come on not only guys watch adult swim.. there’s a lot of us gals out there.. waiting for some NANA!! and other anime to be release to the general public..

    DEATH NOTE FIGHTING!

  6. Mm-hmm, mm-hmm, wanna c NANA so bad…AS rocks, and so does DN. I already read all the Death Note manga, it was awesome.

  7. I agree with Angry Pancake. Anime is all right in small doses but when little freaks who obsess over it come around, it wrecks the whole enjoyment. Hell, that goes for any tv show. Whatever, I guess that’s life.

    Death Note is pretty good though.

  8. OMG!
    This is unbelievable.
    I rather enjoy the manga and the live action movies, but I have only seen episode one of the anime…I don’t like the anime much…but I suppose I’llg ive it shot.

    I just hope they don’t ruin the dubbing.
    D:

  9. I can’t wait to see this! I believe it was Viz who got this so it should be…okay….

    BTW, the person who said that Adult Swim does a good job with their dubs: ADULT SWIM DOESN’T DUB ANYTHING they get the shows to air them. FUNimation, and Viz gives them their shows to air. Adult Swim is just what that special air-time is called. This is a Viz dub so it won’t be the greatest. For example: Viz dubed one piece MY EARS BLED. FUNimation bought the rights for it from Viz, no I am super happy because I can listen to it without bleeding out my ears!!

    I can’t wait to see this though, L’s voice sounds really hot, but that’s just judging it by that 3 second clip of his voice NOT distorted. Light’s voice dosent sound insane enough though. Go watch the Trailer on Viz.com it’s a weird trailer.

  10. I cannot wait for this!
    It’s one of my absolute favourite shows of all time.
    I came across it because of some fan art, and now I am completely addicted.
    And I agree. Light’s voice doesn’t sound sinister enough. I hope it ends up changing towards the end. And they did pick a good L voice, so I’m happy about that.
    I also hope they don’t block anything from the air, like the bleeding sequences and stuff, or I will be thoroughly upset.
    I honestly will be standing my TV till midnight.

    *Squee!*

  11. Hell yeah!!!! I’ve already seen the series in japanese and have been hoping they bring it to adult swim in America.

  12. Yeah, i have read the whole series, and seen all the episodes in Japanese. I think thsat the Japanese series is better but who knows i just herd about it today so yeah. Anyways im shure it will be fine hopefully L doesn’t have a crapy voice LOL. OH and the movies?…. are they going to be in English?……. i have the emported ones the 2nd movie has BAD subbes….(i waisted 15 bucs …) anyways its great that they have it on Adult Swim now , now everyone will recieve the gift of deathnote and most of all L….. ^.^

  13. Haha, Omg, it’s released XD
    Well I already have a complete DVD of this so I don’t care hahaha xD
    I hope the dubs aren’t bad :o
