I've only read the manga - and I stopped after the big midpoint. I liked the story up until then, though, and have been meaning to give it another chance. I have seen one of the live action DN movies as well (the second one, which has a different and quite good ending) and quite enjoyed it.

Actually, quite a few people I know have started using 'Death Note Ending' for series where the best resolution for a series is the death of the lead character...

I would love to see what you think of the manga when you get around to finishing it. I've heard that the second part is much better than what was presented in the anime--that it went into a lot more depth with both Near and Mello, and that the pacing is much better as well. *sighs* I might just have to start reading manga, it keeps pulling at me, and I'm beginning to think that resistance is futile.

I have the first live action movie but haven't watched it yet. I may put that on the schedule of things to watch when Jester comes up next week. I have yet to get the second movie, and I actually didn't know that it ended differently, so now I'm quite curious about that.

That's actually kind of interesting that Death Note has almost 'trademarked' and ending style. It makes me laugh a bit...at least every one who is reading the story will know what's going to happen :)

^^;; Yeah, 'Death Note Ending' does kinda give too much away, but it's such a good descriptor for a few other series. (And then again, I have friends who don't like that sort of story and being able to say 'Anime XYZ has a Death Note Ending' might keep them from frustration/annoyance.)

Apparently you didn't read this part of my last post.

The second live action Death Note movie ends the series without going off into the second arc that the manga does. It was a real surprise in the theatre, but I liked it.

Yeah... it pulls off a completely different 'Death Note Ending' than the real Death Note ending!
