He saved him over the mayor and unintentionally causes a thread of murders that shiftily point to the little boy. Then there is Gosick. It is an adorable Sherlock and Watson series. It features a young girl who solves case after case. She is accompanied by her kind assistant as she does her sleuthing. These two series are examples of murder mysteries.

Death Note has continually attained success over the years. Ten years after it was first released, it continues inspire more creators to learn from its journey. The manga was released thirteen years ago. It just makes us truly happy that we have followed it.

Meanwhile, things are gradually falling into place for the much awaited Death Note film. It has been stated that Willem Dafoe is all set to lend his voice to Ryuk.

According to reports, Dafoe will bring the bored Shinigami to life in the American version of the hit Japanese manga. Fans of the original iteration of the story had fallen in love with the character because of his ability to drop the mysterious Death Note. It is a notebook that lets anyone kill anybody. They just had to know the name and face of the person to be killed.

The American Death Note film adaptation has been the talk of the town even before the project formally kick-started. Fans who have loved the original series are just too excited to let more people know about the story of Death Note.
