Circle of licensing life, Death Note ends and begins

dnoteanime.jpgEarlier today, Death Note anime aired its final episode in Japan and while the series has yet to debut on TV, Viz Media is planning to sell the episodes online. The first sixteen episodes will appear on for $1.99 a piece on June 28. These episodes of Death Note are straight from Japan and they have English subtitles. After the sixteen episodes are released Viz plans to release a new episode every week. Alternatively, to buying each episode you can pay $9.95 for a monthly subscription, wait until the entire series is online and sit through a Death Note marathon.


It’s too bad Viz Media has yet to set up a deal with Microsoft to distribute Death Note and their other series over the Xbox Live Video Marketplace. Death Note premieres would be better enjoyed on a large screen TV.

    I am glad they are offering an Online Sub option. They should do it with more properties. I am usually a dub defenter, but……

    I heard the Trailer in English 0_o

    Is Ocean Group doing it or something? Should Have Given it to Studiopolis. Liam O’Brein would have made a perfect L or Light

    The’ve been doing the online thing here too

    Whew… just finished watching the last episode tonight, the anime series was very well done as a whole, did Obata Takeshi’s manga justice. I’ve liked Miyano Mamoru ever since Sakuraba in Eyeshield 21 and Tamaki in Ouran Host Club, his skills has definitely grown as Light (btw, he plays one of the angels in the PS2 game Baroque).

    It would be nice to collect the DVDs later to listen it in English too just to compare.
