    Default If the ending was so bad...

    Then why didn't the anime change it more than it did? While there are some who do indeed like the ending, IMO more people disliked it. Wouldn't the people behind the anime be aware of this and change it? More than that, if the original manga ending was "editorial tampering" as has been suggested by some, wouldn't it then make sense for the original author to give the anime free reign to take the anime in a different direction, one perhaps more true to the original author's vision?

    hmmm. Honestly, I don't know. This is just my SPECULATION, but I'd think that the anime makers first planned to follow the manga almost word-for-word, but the overwhelming number of Light fans might have made them change their mind about the ending. I've seen that happen numerous times, where fans pressured some anime/drama editors to change a sad ending to a happy one.

    Death Note had a really big fanbase, and I'd daresay that there were enough Light supporters who would've gotten very angry over Light dying as pathetically as he did in the manga. So i'd say that the anime makers alternated the ending a bit, still making Light lose and die so it won't be out of context with the manga but Light not dying as pathetically as he did. That way, they probably thought it satisfied both sides-the Light fans who wanted to differ from the manga, and haters of Light who still wanted Light to die.

    ^ I agree 100%.

    Besides that, my not liking the ending is a personal opinion, not fact. It's not like the theory of gravity, where you simply need to jump or drop something to prove it exists, and the number of people who feel the same way doesn't change that. Changing the ending completely would've opened up a whole other can of worms, because it's likely that their ending could've ended up being worse. And I'm sure they didn't want to take that risk--after all, it's not like there were surefire changes they could've made that everyone would be satisfied with.

    Plus, their not changing things doesn't suddenly make the ending better. Just because they ran with it doesn't mean I have to accept how it went.

    In a weird way.. yes.


    No, I think the manga ending was way better than in the anime.

    At least in the manga was this scene where Light bids Ryuk to kill everyone, and he say "Ok I write", and then everyone shoots at him and Ryuk shows Light that he is writing his name.
    I liked this part of the ending.

    And the way Light died was way more dramatical, like screaming and then collapsing. Very good in my opinion.


    And another part that bothers me so much in the anime is that they dont explain why a DeathNote user cant go to heaven or hell.
    Only in the midscene where the DeathNote rules are always shown its mentioned that every person goes to "Mu" (Nothingness).

    I cant figure out why they left this part... its imo too important not so mention it!

    yeah they shouldve elaborated more on that MU part. you know, the fact that there really isnt any heaven nor hell...
    but the subject really is the way the anime ended, which in my opinion was alright but the manga one was certainly better.

    Maybe they left the Mu part because of some DeathNote fans who might have their feelings hurt because they are religious or have this believe of a afterlife.

    Still, I think the idea of Mu and every person ends in nothingness is great (not the less because I, as a scientific person, think its the thruth) and a good end for Light too.

    ^ Oh, come on. I've seen several hit series throw crosses, crucifixion and the Buddha thrown into scenes at random. Considering that I only watch the most popular/acclaimed stuff, I'm sure it wouldn't have have been a big deal. I mean, DBZ has God as a recurring character, for Christ's sake, and that's easily the most popular anime ever. So why not address the afterlife in a series that deals almost entirely with murder and death?

    Because in DBZ evil persons got punished by going to hell, and others very good ones like Son-Goku where even allowed to keep their original Bodys so that they didnt truely have died, they where just in an other place.

    In DeathNote with Mu, no one, how evil he is and how bad he did in his life, getss a punishment.
    Everyone ends the same way, so this means that life itself becomes somewhat meaningless, because no matter what you do after life you get the same.

    I think many people are against this part if they are religious.

    I think religious got nothing to do with this.
    So i really didnt understand about MU part cos it was bit confusing to me. Cos I still dont know what MU mean? Can Someone explain what it mean does it mean the person will be Deleted or Exist?

    Because i thought somewhere in manga ryuk said there is heaven and hell so that mean if good people will go to heaven and bad people like crimes goes to hell. Now this is confusing at end of DN manga it stated people will goes to MU or they become Nothingness is that correct i mean will be more confused if it correct?

    Ryuuk at the begining of Manga only Stated that Death Note Users Will goes to nither Heaven nor Hell And he was not talking about people of Earth. Also that leave clue to most Light/Kira fans and they all were suggesting they didnt mind if Light dies cos he will mostly goes to Shingami World to become a Shingami and it is true most of Light/Kira Fans still wish for that.

    But Ryuuk at the ending of Manga only Stated that Death Note Users Will goes to nither Heaven nor Hell But they will become MU or goes to MU. This is point to Show that There is no chance for Light going Shingami World or becoming a Shingami. Which made all Light Fans unhappy.

    In Anime it look like there might be a chance for Light going to Shingami World Cos when you look at the Opening credits of Death Note Anime and you See Light Standing in a Shingami World!?!? It might be changed depended on new Speical OVA If they do wish to tell the turth or i dont know what.

    Human are Interesting!
