National Public Radio Profiles Death Note

posted on by Mikhail Koulikov

National Public Radio's Fresh Air program is currently running a feature on Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata's Death Note manga and anime series. In his six-minute piece, pop-culture and film critic John Powers introduces the plot of the series (calling it a "wonderful piece of pop storytelling") and talks about Death Note's "infinitely seductive premise." He compares the main character Light to Harry Potter and The Matrix's Neo, but calls him a "rebel with a cause that is misguided."

Fresh Air can be heard weekly on over 450 NPR stations around the country, and his review is also streaming online.
