All 2,400 Pages of Death Note Manga Compiled in One Really Big Volume

Includes previously unpublished story

For two and a half years and over 12 manga volumes, Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata enthralled Japan (and later the world) with Death Note, the suspenseful story of a teenage prodigy entrusted with the powers to kill anyone at will. With the fourth live-action film, Death Note: Light Up the New World, coming out on October 29, now might be a good time to recollect the original story. Shueisha is making that task easier with a new one-volume collection.

The book will be published on October 4 and spans 2,400 pages. With a thickness of about eight centimeters (three inches), this isn't the kind of thing you can easily grab. Part of that crazy thickness is due to the inclusion of a previously unpublished special story that ran in Weekly Shonen Jump in November 2008 to commemorate the release of the third Death Note movie, L: Change the World. Its sales price is 2,500 yen (about $24.70).

The fifth Death Note film, meanwhile, is being produced by Netflix and will premiere in 2017.
