    Default DN ~ any implications/messages?

    sorry if i might be asking a similar question to those that have already been asked before...

    i'm just wondering, are there any sort of implications or conclusions that can be drawn from the story of Death Note? I mean, did Tsugumi Ohba write DN for a reason, or was there a particular message that he was trying to convey?

    Or alternatively, has DN changed your views about or raised your awareness on issues concerning justice/right and wrong/society/ (or anything else).. ?

    please give your opinions and the reasons for your views

    Ohba's too stupid to craft a profound message, I'm afraid. Any message you find is unintentional.

    Woah, and here's the understatement of the day.

    Anyway, I do remember reading an interview made to both artist, in which they expressed that their intention to make Death Note was to portrait the transformation of a normal person into a sociophat......more or less....from what I recall.

    only one problem light didn't go from the five stages of the socialpathic pattern. first something trumatic happened, most of the time causeing posttrumatic stress disorder, then realiziton, then denial, then anger, and finaly dispare and loss. at the end of despare the person loses oneself and becomes a socialpath. however this does not always happen in the same order but eventually it does happen. light went through few of these stages. one the death note following in the human world causeing a tramatic change in light. two, he realizes the potental of the note. finally anger towards crimanals and how they can pay. he dosen't lose anything and he's never in denail.

    Light didn't go through stages, he was simply corrupted by the ultimate power of the Death Note. Give any human the power of a god and he'll get drunk at the well of power. That much is obvious.

    I have read Macbeth several times. It's quite good.

    Death Note certainly wasn't based on Macbeth, but it follows the tragedy formula.

    Macbeth is about blind ambition leading to doom...on that level, Death Note is quite similar. However, Death Note draws most of its inspiration from classical Greek tragedies...after all, Light's sin is hubris.
