Death Note Volume 1 in April

Viz Media and Manga Entertainment have announced the UK Region 2 DVD release of Death Note Volume 1 on 28th April 2008 priced at £19.99. A new anime based on the best-selling manga by writer Tsugumi Ohba and illustrator Takeshi Obata (Hikaru no Go), the supernatural thriller Death Note makes its UK DVD debut in April as a two-disc release featuring the first eight episodes of the series.

Brilliant but bored high school student Light Yagami suddenly finds himself holding the power of life and death in his hands in the form of the Death Note, a notebook dropped into the human realm by Ryuk, a rogue Shinigami god of death. When Light discovers that any human whose name is written in the notebook will die within minutes, he embarks on a vigilante campaign to rid the world of evil by killing off criminals one by one.

But as the body count mounts, Light's killing spree attracts the attention of both the police and a mysterious investigator known only as "L", who vows to track down the killer and bring him to justice. Light becomes aware of his new nemesis and soon finds himself involved in a high-stakes battle of wits with L. Meanwhile, Ryuk, amused by the psychological conflict going on between Light and L, is ever on the sidelines watching and waiting…

  • English voice actor behind-the-scenes feature
  • Japanese animation and character designer interview
  • Audio commentary for Episode 7
  • Production art gallery
  • Clean opening and closing
  • English and Japanese 2.0 audio options
