    Default Death Note's Similarities to Other Media

    So what similarities to Death Note have you seen in other anime/manga/stories? Plot-wise, character-wise, script-wise...?

    Take Digimon. I know it's old and childish, but still.

    Think about it:

    Yagami Raito/Light - Death Note
    Yagami Hikari - Digimon

    Hikari translates roughly as "shining light".

    Also, Kira is an anagram of Kari (the dub name).

    And then there's the hair.

    Poor Light must have had a terrible childhood - dressing up as a girl and running around with strange creatures, ne? XD

    Yes. I really felt the need to bring this up.

    thought this was about OTHER media?? like, Light's hairdo looking like Iori Yagami's hairdo... I think I associate them because of the "night god" name but they still look alike when they have their cold expressions

    ^ Nice one. Death Note is pretty original so I guess you'll just be seeing manga/anime's that are similar to it.

    It's only now that I've noticed that. ^^

    And I agree about DeathNote's originality. So far I haven't read any manga with elements just like it.

    When we talk of the physical appearances of the characters, there will be similarities with others, but plot-wise, it's really unique.

    Well, even small things. The fact that it IS so unique enables people to see even the little things, and laugh at them. Even if there was a similar scene or whatever...

    I didn't notice any of the spelling things... =P
