I did a gift exchange with fellow blogger, Bambi. You should check out her blog! Bambi lives in America while I am in Canada.
I got the notebook from the anime, Death Note! P.S. I took these photos on my bed so that explains the stuffed animals.
Nice cover material
Third page of the rules
The rules are all there 😛
String and feather pen
To my pleasant surprise, there are already names in here. The names of the actual characters who died are here. The writings are in Japanese Kanji. I appreciate this because it sticks closer to the original series and not the English dub. Do not fret, I can read some Chinese (which is basically the same as Kanji) which means I will help in translating. I’ll show some photos, but please – if you have not watched or finished the series but plan to, stop reading here. These are spoilers! I did not take photos of all the written names because that would be a lot.
The first name Light Yagami wrote in the Death Note: Kurou Otoharada. He was the criminal at the nursery home. Light tested out the Death Note by writing his name.
Takuo Shibuimaru’s name is written in different ways. Light wasn’t sure of the spelling of his name. He was the person on a motorcycle who was harrassing a woman. At this point Light was still testing out the notebook.
Lind L. Tailor was a criminal sentenced to die, and went on live television while pretending to be L. This was L’s plan to find clues on Kira. Light killed him, thinking that he was the real L.
Light tests the boundaries of the Death Note by getting inmates to do strange tasks, before their deaths.
In order to get the identity of the agent following him, Light comes up with an elaborate plan involving the death of criminal Kiichiro Osoreda.
Both Light and Raye Penber write on this page. Penber kills all 12 FBI agents without even knowing it! It is cool to know the number of characters who have touched and/or written in this notebook.
Naomi Misora (killed by Light) and Kiyomi Takada (killed by Teru Mikami) are amongst the other names written inside.
The last name in this is Light’s name, written by Ryuk.
The notebook has the major names of victims killed by the Death Note. It does not have all the names (which I am thankful for because A LOT of criminals died in the series). It is not 100% accurate. For example, the page Penber wrote on was ripped out of the Death Note. The fact that it has the important deaths in one place is something that I like.
The rest of the notebook pages are blank, free for the owner to use. Hence, the feather pen. You may be wondering if I will be writing in this. I wanted this because I am a huge fan of the anime, and also for cosplay purposes. As far as I know, I will not be writing names down.
