VIZ Licenses Death Note Anime to Adult Swim

by Tom Good

VIZ announced today that they have licensed the DEATH NOTE anime series to Adult Swim for domestic broadcast. It all starts at midnight (EST) on Saturday, October 20 at midnight (EST), with new episodes following each week. “The domestic broadcast debut of DEATH NOTE has been patiently awaited by fans across the country and we are pleased to team with Adult Swim to facilitate it,” states William Germain, Director, Animation Production, VIZ Media., “The mix of drama, mystery and action has already made the Shonen Jump DEATH NOTE manga a hit and the anime series takes the characters and plot to the next level with a captivating visual style. We look forward to fans tuning in each week for the latest adventures of L and Light as they struggle to outwit each other and demonstrate conflicting ideas about right and wrong.”

DEATH NOTE has long been one of my favorite manga series; I consider it one of the best written manga of all time. And the costumes at this year's Kumoricon revealed a growing interest in the series. This show will be essential Fall viewing for anime fans.
